Fort Worth Art Dealers Association Spring Gallery Night

Saturday turned out to be a beautiful day to get the bikes rolling somewhere. Margaret has a friend named Jessica who is an artist and had invited us to an art exhibition where she had been invited to show her work. This is an event sponsored by the Fort Worth Art Dealers Association and provides an opportunity for local artists to get their work noticed. The art event called Spring Gallery Night had over 30 locations around Fort Worth and into Arlington that you can tour between and see or buy different styles and types of local art.

How to Change the Fork Oil on a 2012 Harley Davidson Street Glide

Yea I know, another maintenance post. Sorry. It's another rainy weekend keeping us garaged again. I figured this would provide a chance to do a video on changing the fork oil on a Street Glide. I kinda browsed around the net looking for a video on this subject and never found one on performing this process on a Street Glide. Well, I did discover one video but they wanted you to pay for access which I am simply not going to do.

Grumps in Granbury

Tuesday turned out to be a beautiful day even though I worked all day. After my 120 mile round trip commute I rode into the garage to find Margaret standing there with her helmet on. I looked at her googly eyed and curious as to what she thought she (and I) were supposed to be doing. Her response was "Your taking me riding tonight!" Keep in mind here as you evaluate her request that I had been up since 5 am, rode 120 miles, part of that in rush hour traffic, worked all day, rolled back into the garage 12.5 hours since getting out of bed and now she wants to ride... Oh my! What to do? After being married to her for 20 years I have learned to choose my battles and this was not one of them.

How to Lubricate the Clutch Cable on a Harley Davidson

The prospect of riding quickly faded Friday afternoon when the chance for thunderstorms on Saturday went to 90%. And as predicted the rain rolled in about noon leaving us to make plans to do something else. Rainy days do make for good maintenance though. It keeps you productive on a non riding day and yet still involved in bike related activities. With the knowledge that your not going to be riding for the weekend due to weather you will also find yourself slowing down and taking your time doing the maintenance. This will make for an enjoyable afternoon and you'll feel good about getting work done on your bike during the down time.

How to Change the Front Brakes on a Harley Davidson

I've been trying to break up the posts between riding related stuff and maintenance to keep a bit of a balance for those that don't perform maintenance. It will taper off as riding season comes more into play and we begin taking more trips and going to events. For now though, its maintenance time! This is the perfect time to get those bikes ready for some hard riding this spring, summer, and fall!

Cranfills Gap & Horny Toad Bar & Grill 2014

Last weekend was looking good for a nice ride when the text came in from our friends George and Pat asking where we were going. At first I was going to wimp out and just take a shorty for lunch. Then I decided since the weather was supposed to be so nice and we had another couple to ride with that I would take a nice short ride to Cranfills Gap. It's been a long time since I had a good burger so the Horny Toad Bar & Grill seemed to be the obvious choice of destination.
