No riding this weekend, but lots of progress

This was the perfect weekend for riding. Nice and sunny and 70F. However, all my bike time was spent indoors.

Got the new rear tire (Pirelli MT66 170/80) mounted and balanced. While it was out I lubed the splines on both ends of the driveshaft with moly and gave the U-joint some white lithium.

Found the disconnected kickstand switch that was most likely the reason it didn't want to go last time I tried to ride it.

Got my mirror extenders installed.

Got the rear wheel reinstalled and everything back there put back together. Cleaned up some crud from the very bottom while I was down there.

Got the front wheel off and ready to have the new tire (Pirelli MT66 110/90) mounted and balanced.

Got the carbs cleaned out and ready to go back in, once I get my new idle adjuster.

For my own future reference, it's got 23,110 miles right now. Hopefully I should be good for a decent batch of miles before I need to do anything else major to it.
