What did you do to or with your motorcycle today?

Now that summer is officially here, I just thought it would be fun if people shared with what their experiences are particularly during this time of year. So for myself, I have two smaller motorcycles now that are primarily colored White, and I decided I wanted to have a white colored license plate frame on the back. I found out that they are almost impossible to find. Most frames of course, are all metal and some of them are very intricately designed and not so ecomodder friendly because they're heavy! So I ordered two black ones and painted them today. Where I am it was about the hottest day of the year so far at 77 degrees the paint dried pretty fast. A couple of weeks ago, I purchased a motorcycle stand so I can jack up the little Honda Grom to adjust its chain when necessary oh, not realizing I was missing the crossed adjustability pieces. So I had to talk over the phone with the supervisor of the local store to find out the proper protocol, and he told me of two semi-close other locations where they have them in stock. I am so enamored with actual dry days and sunshine oh, that I didn't want to contemplate doing that return chore in a car if possible, so I've taken the frame and carefully thumbs he did to one of my larger motorcycles. It took me a long time to do so, because I do not want to scratch up The hardside Bags. When I was done securing it, it was hilarious to look at! From a distance it would appear to other people that I have intentionally put a roll bar on it! The shape of the stand and the way it's on the bike looks exactly like a John Deere tractor with a little roll bar. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we usually only have from about this Time on the calendar To early October to trust much at all in having dry weather. It is very typical for fair-weather riders in this area even if they ride a lot during the summer to only put probably a maximum of 4,000 miles a year on their motorcycle. A lot of Californians like to come up and buy used bikes from here because they're low mileage. So anyway, hopefully sometime this week, I am hoping to take back roads and go about 50 miles one way to a Harbor Freight store in a little town that I've never really been in before. What's up with you?

Okay I'm not going to beat a dead horse. I wasn't trying to pry into anybody's business or compromise anybody's personal . security. And I probably should have put this in the lounge instead. So I apologize

Did I miss something?

If you put a roll cage on a reverse tricycle, you have to call it an 'upper frame' because lawyers. According to a local manufacturer.
