Oil changes

   I remember reading through the manual for scooter. It's started that you replace the oil at 300 km, 1000 km, and then every 4000 km from then on. I was wondering why because that isn't a very long distance.
   When I did the first oil change at 150 km I found out why. A screen functions as the filter so it doesn't really capture any dirt. It just kind of accumulates in what's essentially a sump. Anyway, it requires oil changes more often than what you're used to doing. I just passed the 400 km mark so I'll probably do one more oil change in the next few days.

I haven't posted anything here for a while but I've been very busy these days. My garden is now ready for this year. The scooter is running well and I've been putting to use a lot. It's amazing how easy it is to get lost when you hadn't driven for 9 1/2 years. I'm helping Susan with some of her tasks too, and yesterday, that was her front yard.
Soon I'll be visiting the motorcycle museum here in Colorado Springs. That should be cool and it isn't too far from my house.
