The Years Eight through Ten

On, June 12, 2008 I celebrated the tenth anniversary of my Pantera purchase. I haven't had any major goals for the Pantera over the last few years other than routine maintenance and enjoying the ride.  #1887 has gotten to be like a cherished old friend! 

I've only spent $199.86 on #1887 over the last three years with an Optima battery warranty replacement being the most expensive item at $80.15.   The other expenses were regular maintenance cost for oil, oil filers, spark plugs, brake fluid and one set of dual points.  I did do one inexpensive modification to the mufflers by drilling out the muffler baffles.   Made it a little louder and it feels like it pulls a bit faster.
