I think, it's time to do my TOB, so bought some stuff, OEM TOB, Motul gear oil, VE fork & Pivot. Even went extra and bought OEM Bearing Retainer. Thought about replacing my clutch... but why? It's <50k mile on it. I'm pretty sure it's still good.

Just did same work and it feels super nice compared to before.

Except some days I still have terrible shifts. I don't blame the car, I blame myself. Makes me think I should go back in an empty parking lot and practice like I did 4 years ago when I got the car.

Our company highly recommends that all employees get it... You can specifically request a fully vaccinated crew if your vaccine isn't working.

Went on lil lunch date w my wife. After lunch, had extra time, so test drive Subaru Ascent Limited & Toyota Highlander XSE. Both weren’t bad. I’m used to driving very low to the ground, so felt a bit weird having that high up… kinda felt like driving a truck. Wanted to drive Highlander Hybrid, but dealer didn’t have it O’well.

& if you're wondering what we ate for lunch

Oh, don't be too hard on yourself about shifting. Not all of us learned, at 8 years old, how to shift with a 38 HP tractor pulling a disk.

Yep, after those shifts, shifting cars and trucks was a piece of cake -

I still have terrible shifts sometimes too. And others I'm right on target. And my clutch is the same I've had since 2013.
