Motorcycle - Oil Change

Monday - rain and cold. Tuesday - rain, wind and even colder.. Darn, the motorcycle season can't end so soon.
The oil change had to be postponed, but today we finally managed to do it.

Of course, it didn't go exactly as planned, but when does it..? ;)
First bump: we realized that one wrench was missing from the tools case. Ironically, it was the one that I needed to open the oil drain :). I had to go to the nearest market and buy a new one.
Second bump: because of the drain screw positioning, the wrench barely got some grip on it; an extension would have been ideal. Anyway, we managed to open it, and Andra's help proved essential in this case.

After the hard part was over, we remembered about the photo camera:

I don't really know how she did it, but Andra didn't really get her hands dirty this time. I'll make sure next time she releases the drain screw, that should do it :).

Please ignore Suzi's looks - it rained, got dirty and I didn't get chance to wash it. Also, because of a small incident, the plastic fairing got cracked and I'm waiting for the insurance to solve it soon.

In the end, considering it was a first for us, we did a good job and learned quite a few things from this experience.
