Last weekend I took a long trip; from Houston to Lafayette La and some of the surrounding area. The night before I took off I did a check up on my bike. Tire pressure, oil...whatever I could think of.
I looked at the brake fluid reservoir, and noticed that I could not see the level of the fluid. So I opened it and noticed a rubber seal across the reservoir. I touched it with my key and saw the level of fluid seemed OK, so I closed it. I had a brief moment of doubt, then fired up the bike and checked the brakes. Everything seemed fine.
The next morning I took off, and made sure to test the brakes a few times. They worked fine, and continued to work fine the whole day. (It was awesome! I left home around 0630 Saturday, made my trip and visits and got back home to Houston around 0130 Sunday morning.)
The following Monday I rode the bike to work (about 65 miles round trip) and again, everything worked fine.
But now I am wondering...did I possibly do something wrong? (OK, I know it is late to be asking, but the thought just occurred to me)
