    Late last year, when the release date for Avengers: Endgame was announced, one of our friends mentioned that he'd never seen any of the Marvel movies. So, starting just after Christmas, five of us decided to get together about once a week to watch through all 20 MCU movies leading up to Captain Marvel and Endgame. We made it through all of them just in time for the Endgame premier. My wife nicknamed it "Marvel Night School." She bought some small pieces of Marvel memorabilia and asked me to come up with some nice way to present them. So I got some inexpensive shadow boxes, gun case foam, a hot wire cutting tool, and some satin cloth; I spent the morning making up these "graduation presents" for our friends.

    Did valve adjustments on the GS550. Got lucky and was able to swap shims around to get them all within spec. The one complaint I have with this old bike is that the valve lash spec is so tight (.001” - .003”), and the interval is every 3000 miles! At least old Honda’s give you tappet adjusters. But it could be worse.... at least it’s shim over bucket, not under like my other bike. Cams don’t have to come out.
    I always find a soap box useful to get on my high horse.

    ...and with valve adjustments comes carb syncing. To be honest the objective was the carb syncing, but syncing without checking valve lash is pointless.

    Carb syncing is probably my favorite service to perform.

    I just got back from a trip down to Tennessee/North Carolina/Etc. Went through Deals Gap on the way back to the hotel one evening. I was playing around with a helmet mounted camera but didn't have a way to preview what was being shot. Anywhos, turned the camera on before heading out. Followed a buddy of mine at a fun pace, we weren't setting any records but weren't putting along either. I was on my 1200S Monster and wasn't shifting or using the brakes much.. though on a big Ducati, engine braking and a broad torque curve are your friends.

    So yeah, fun pace, nice weather, and for the first time I can remember, we made the entire run without coming up on any other traffic. In other words, a great run.

    Checked the video later and... I got a great shot of my dash and about five feet in front of the bike. D'oh! All the other shots from that day were better, I have no idea what happened. It's always something!

    Took the Hornet out for a spin this morning. First time I've ridden one, cracking little bike.

    Tracing a fuel leak on my 851. Leaks when pressurized until the tank is pulled up, then no leak. Grr... replacing the high pressure feed line and hoping for the best but after getting the line itself I'm procrastinating going back out in the hot garage to install it!

    Finished prepping this old thing today. Miss tinkering on a bike, seems so much nicer to work on

    Congrats. Definitely a major milestone. Now you can relax for a bit. Sit there with beer in hand, stare at it and bask in the glory. Still mulling over what colour it’s going to be?
