Milk Crate GET

Today I attached a milk crate to the scoot (fig.1) to hopefully improve its cargo-hauling capabilities. Doesn't look too pretty, but it doesn't need to. I took a look to see if I could figure out why the brake light doesn't light up when I brakes, but I wasn't able to figure it out.

I re-seated one of the main engine covers, because all the wiring and the rectifier were exposed to sunlight and rain, two things that don't seem too good for them (hence my recent difficulties getting the sled started, I think).

Last but not least, I also adjusted the brakes (fig. 2) front and back; there was way too much travel on the levers before the brakes engaged. I finally had to pack it in. It's just too damn hot out there for an all-day fix-a-thon. Steady progress continues. Maybe it'll be back to 100% by the time riding season comes to a close.
