Nice work!

I've done many of those tasks, Yes more involved then just tire changes for sure.
Although even those can be some work on the back of the wing..

I used to carry around a sheet with the procedure to flip the back half of the bike up to expose the rear wheel but never had to use it.

Gold wings scare me.
I apologize to the motorcycle Gods as I've turned away many.

We offer three kinds of service @ Resurrection
GOOD - CHEAP - FAST
You can pick any two
GOOD service CHEAP won't be FAST
GOOD service FAST won't be CHEAP
FAST service CHEAP won't be GOOD
and cold beer.

I'd love to help but I don't chase parts.
Please contact other forum members and supporters for parts.

Thats not Rodericks?

Vern, Stopped at Chicks place in Ohio last week on my way home from WV. He just picked up a 2013 FJR. Looks like ATL 2014.

it's not the fall that kills you, it's that sudden stop
