Two Wheels - Six Strings

Random news and thoughts about various two-wheeled projects and music, especially my band, Skull Full Of Blues.

It's The Little Things...

So far everything has gone pretty smoothly, as far as the Yamaha is concerned. Everything except mounting the license plate, of all things!

I got the plate, yesterday, and took it out to the bike, along with two bolts to attach it to the fancy little mounting plate on the tailpiece. Unfortunately, the plate is drilled too close to the base of the tail light, and the holes wouldn't line up.

So, out comes the electric drill...

I put four holes (4-1/2 if you count the one I had to enlarge because I drilled it slightly off-center) in the mounting plate, and bolted the license plate to it.

It only took about 10 minutes from start to finish. Considering the fact that it should have taken 30 seconds, though, that seemed like a long time.

Still a little chilly on the back porch...

Hopefully, it will warm up a little in the next couple of days and some progress can be made.
