Got a call... 'uh your bike is perfect'. You dont need brakes. We did tighten your vstrom handguard on the right side though' These guys were telling me I would probably need that pivot under the bike serviced, but apparently they don't want my money.

Winter...it happens. Ride anyway. Retirement is good.

Doesn't surprise me at all. Like you, I take care of all my fluids. I've got 18k on mine, and it runs like a scalded cat (gotta love them 05's). Did a throttle body synch a couple weeks ago, they were just a hair off. Now it accelerates off an idle a lot cleaner, but overall there's not much difference, if any - since doing the TBS. Haven't checked my brakes either. Thanks for the reminder: better check em before heading out for Daytona this weekend.
