As per the question, let us know what you did to your little cbr today!

Did you wash it, install a brand new exhaust, paint your heat shield or went for a nice ride today! :)

Adjusted chain tension and aligned wheel properly (nearly 1 full mark out of alignment). Noticed oil dark and low, no more riding before oil gets changed. Get oil and filter tomorrow.

Walked by it. Off work tomorrow, kids and wife at the show but not me! Sun will be out, so where shall I go?
sounds like it will be a great day for you tomorrow! not too sure where you should go though, but seeing as you live in the Adelaide Hills i'm sure it won't be too hard to have fun ;)

Went on a 600km ride in the country. Tested my cold-weather gear setup. I went early so it was 6 celsius when I started. The windchill at 120kph made it effectively -2 degrees (according to a couple of online calculators). Everything was good except my hands were freezing after half and hour. I was wearing full leather gloves with no ventilation. Also found that my neck was exposed and I had to tuck a small towel in my collar for lack of a scarf. My forearms were a bit cold due to mesh-like material in the forearms of my jacket. A long sleeve shirt would have helped. I've got about a month of riding left, so I'm trying to make the most of it.

Went for a ride yesterday, cool temps and overcast sky. Rode up above 10,000 ft., where it was drizzling and thick fog, so that was interesting. Heading out for a ride now... today we have clear blue skies in northern New Mexico and cool temps. Couldn't ask for better motorcycling weather!

Hope your ride is a good one! :)
