Tupperware Party

     It was time to change the air filter on my 2009 R1200RT Joy. I had the new part in stock and watched a short you tube video on the procedure. One thing that surprised me was how tough the air tube detent held the air tube to the frame. It took a lot of pressure to pop it free. I was being careful as it was the first time I took her tupperware off. I was able to floss the inside of the tube by using an old t shirt. The stuck on debris would not release with compressed air. The words of Jeffrey Curran came to mind as I was installing the last few screws: "People that own these bikes and don't work on them are really missing out on one of the best parts of being an owner".
