First fluid change in the Batwing!

Sharkweek trip racked up enough miles to qualify the batwing for its first fluid change with me.

Ordered a a full setup of Redline yesterday (I have had good experience with it in the Shark). Looking forward to getting it up on the lift and doing some service this weekend!

That's not a Batwing. It's a wannabe Shark

First of all I have no idea who the responsible party(s) are. Although I have my suspicions lol. Whoever's responsible is a pretty good artist with the exception of the blue tape. I just noticed the "Mean Mug" lol.

Secondly I don't have a pic of him initially seeing his new ride. He did take it well though. It proved to be rode worthy too. We all know the RG rides better than the Batwing. So he rode it to the group photo.

He deserved it. That was kinda like showing up to a Corvette showing in a Mustang. I wonder if he at least got to drink any of the beer ?

Nor do I have any evidence pointing toward the guilty party. I will say, though, the Mean Mug was a stroke of brilliance.

Well done, whomever you are.
