    We did the engine maintenance today, new oil, filters, sparkplugs, etc. Tomorrow we'll grease, look at the deck for levelling and need to do some maintenance around the battery.

    Initially the ZT was tuning a little to the left, but we adjusted it and it's now close to straight. But to be honest; it's still too cold to be out there for a long time, so we'll do some further adjustments tomorrow morning.

    I'll take some pictures tomorrow and post then (if I can figure out how to....)

    And yes, my son is going to mow some lawns in the neighbourhood to earn money for his first car... just trying to support it a little...

    Yep it is cold! I cannot believe this weather. I thought it was over, but I guess we got another week or two!
