Commuting - September 8

The ride in was lighter than usual with lots of school buses along the way. It will be interesting to see how they change the flow on of traffic. The sun was quite low in the sky this morning, so I don't think I'll be able to use the dark smoke visor in the morning for much longer.

I took the SV650 today as the air filter for the WR250R was still drying. I cleaned it thoroughly after the ride yesterday which is needed as it was quite dirty from all the gravel roads lately. On the way home, I stopped into the hardware store to look for some replacement M6 bolts for the seat bottom, side cover, and air-filter cover. I want to get something that can be done all with the same tool or preferably just fingers. Currently, I need to use a 8mm wrench, philips screwdriver, and an allen wrench to remove four bolts to clean the air filter.

I also desperately need to clean my riding gear as my co-workers gave me quite a hard time with pants, coat, and boots covered in mud and dust. Next dualsport ride, I am wearing my off-road pants and boots.
