Haggard old grips gotta GO! PROGRIP #714 RALLY RAID TO THE RESCUE!

First things first, after getting the bike to my house and doing the initial inspection, the first signal of things to change are the GRIPS! These old dawgs have seen better days!

Top sides are toast:

Bottom sides are BLOWED UP!

Not just any oh-grip will work for me and I am finicky when it comes to grips!
I have only found one type of grip for me.

ProGrip #714 Rally Raid

Rally ProGrips mounted up...

But they are missing something...

Something in those grooves or channels....

Is missing.

AAAHHHH the wire tied tried and trued method for double insurance for safety. Plus it add's that nice "FACTORY PREPPED" look.

The old battery... SHOT! So, a new one was in order. I like the E-BUTTON! And the kick start on the left side of the is IMPOSSIBLE!!!
So nice, I think it's time to take ADV-Rotaxerie out for a desert shake down!
