Warmer weather and PMS.

Something about the changing temperatures over the last few weeks have given me a serious case of PMS. (Parked Motorcycle Syndrome)

While my trusty STeed, the Honda ST1100 is waiting out the end of winter comfortably in a heated storage facility, my poor ’84 Shadow is sitting in the garage. I didn’t even properly winterize her…

Part of me feels a pang of guilt about this. Another part knows I’m likely going to have to do a carb rebuild anyway. If I’m going to have to tear it apart, I may as well have it be dirty, right?
