I replace a few cosmetic things on my bike, making the turn signal lamps gray, putting old-style handgrips to replace the disintigrating OEM ones, adding yet another tool bag (now I have FOUR not counting the big removable one), and the headlight bulb. I tried to replace the handlebar risers with some much larger ones, but they were too curved and were bumping into the tank. So I just left the bars kind of hanging down until I get a straighter set. Unfortunately that probably won't be until my ordered parts come in to the HD dealership and I go all the way up there and pick them up. Someone stole my old ratchet set apparently, so I bought a new Husky set. Looks better anyway.

I replaced the sparkplugs on my bike, blacked out completely with soot as I expected, just as they always look. the rear one actually snapped in half as I was wrenching it out. I noticed that the oil lamp was on, so I checked the dipstick, and it wasn't very low, but there was this nasty peanut-butter sludge on the stick and around the opening. I don't like that. I wonder why the oil light is on.
