So I bought an led bulb for the GW at the winter Super Bike Show. Hey. Here I am with not a lot do (just chainsaw work, wood splitting, stacking, patch kayak, paint fences, fix broken car reflector, vacuuming, etc), so I'll just install it now. Should be five minutes. Having a fairing, I had to try to do this without removing anything (DAW).
The little plastic collar on the led slipped into the reflector unit. No TRY to do that intentionally. Had a time retrieving that.
Then the little wire that's supposed to retain the bulb fell out onto my porch, and it's lucky it didn't go into a crack and become another feast for the squirrel. To place that into the original spot, under a tiny screw, proved almost impossible. Set it aside for the next day. All this is lying, kneeling at the bike and not much light, and very bad sight lines, and one-hand operation room in that fairing cavity.
I think I have to remove a whole lot of plastic now, just to set that spring. Hopefully, It'll make installing that bulb easier. And with this going on, I'm listening to bikes going by, enjoying the air.
In the meantime, the "lady" of the house is barking about getting that chainsaw working (that's another long-term thing) before the cursed blackflies and ticks start up.
I also started to work on making my kayak float. I'd had it duct taped with Gorilla tape for the last four years.
With the virus surrounding us, it's good that this is all stuff to rivet me to home.
Wadda life, eh?
