-25C (-13F) here this morning with a -40C&F wind chill. Was a great winter until mid January when we got blasted with snow and cold. Thankful for a heated garage where I can prep my new to me Concours 1000. Here is a picture after I got the back end back in place. From the mufflers back I had it all out to clean, lube or adjust. Heading into the front end now.

Even cleaner now. Changed fork oil, cleaned brake calipers, forks, rotors, valves adjusted, new plugs, new front tire and wheel polished. It's getting close to going back together. Waiting for a few parts to arrive.

I got 'em on ebay. Here's the link-

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kawasaki-KL...72.m2749.l2649

They have a few different colors and some camo patterns also. They come from Venezuela but I didn't have any troubles and they shipped pretty fast. It says they ship world wide. Not sure how that affects you being in Canada.

Enough Already!!

April 6, and it's still snowing! Temp. 36 deg F, AND......... I've 3 bikes just sitting there "whimpering" !
When will it ever end?
We just get bare ground, and another blanket of that white stuff comes back. ENOUGH ALREADY!

Just one more "scream" and I'll be all right, honest.

We're pretty much in the same boat here in Southern Ontario. was below 32F/0C all weekend, snowing and everything else. Could be worse, parents still have a lot of snow where they are.
