The Zombie Express has been a bit neglected since it's last outing in May.... best investment I have made for it was the lithium battery...last weekend when I decided to catch up on some much needed maintenance I tapped the started and it fired in the first turn of the motor.... !! Gave it a MUCH needed wash and in parts, de-grease, at that ime I was also required to evict Mrs Pidy and her 200 children from the side pouch !!! Then I added an extension to the back of the front fender to reduce mud and water spray (hopefully). And I renewed the custom (Krylon rattle can) tactical black paint job.... It also had a slow leak int he front tyre so I ripped the whole wheel off and dropped it in to the workshop to get a repair done. While it was up on blocks I greased all I could and got thinking about my gunrack/carrier. It works but is annoying.... ....as you can sdee it sits HIGH and raises an already high centre of gravity...So I researched a little and they make another all steel loop bracket (as opposed to the big plastic sleeve on a metal base) and the Aussie agent had one so I whipped out my credit card and had one on the way. I need to pull the other one off anyway as it was badly bent out due to a tumble last trip. Pulled off the old one off as well as the "tactical milk crate" wire brushed the rack and gave it a new shot of rattle can rust guard paint. Once it went off I bolted it all back together.... It sits the hard case much lower and further forward. It is also further "inside" the profile of the bike if it goes down. As adjusted now it has the back of my right thigh sitting on it but I think it will be OK, there is some room to drop the front/raise the rear if it is too annoying on a longer ride.. Now I just have to wait till February for the first trip bush with the work done.
