The 2.99 Solution

You might know already, but I have few complaints about my little VStar. Then again you might know that the biggest gripe I do have is checking the oil: having to stand the bike up straight, get down on my hands and knees (with a flashlight) to look in the little round oil glass window. It’s a two-person job without a center stand. (Grievance #2, the bike is too heavy for me to hold up straight with one hand whilst on my knees.)
Do you see where I’m going with this?

You got it … I was browsing through a Princess Auto flyer and there it was, the 2.99 solution. A Titan telescoping inspection mirror. Why haven’t I thought of this before?
Next problem, finding a flashlight that’s a little more portable and still does the job.

The Great Trail

Part of the “The Great Trail” (apparently now named,) and formerly named the Trans Canada Trail passes through my hood. I walked a portion of The Great Trail in New Brunswick and Quebec. Now, that I am home in Ontario, why not explore a little more of it?
Under a time constraint, I walked such a small part of it this morning, along Sydenham Lake. Tomorrow, I think I might just go a little further ... with a lunch!
