Elbows Deep in German Dirt

Not much gives me as much pleasure as getting all kinds of dirty with an engine. I don't claim to actually know what I'm doing, but in the same way a toddler can occupy his mind for hours with keys, I can occupy myself with basic engine tinkering. Last night, I was able to break out the tools and break down the bike, pretty much to it's frame, and get it's Spring cleaning done. Lindsay snapped this pic of me - note how content I look - putting back the oil tank. There's still some cleaning left to do, and I need to reinstall the new windshield, but after that it's ready to go. Sadly, I have no plans for what I'm going to do with myself when the rains come. So sad.
