New tires front and rear. I went with the Shinko's, $180 delivered.

Outboard rear brake shoe had gone into the rotor. Got one of them $160 rotors from BeemerBoneyard and new shoes all around. Front's didn't need them, but I did them anyway.

Bike feels considerably taller with new tires

Put on the Touratech adjustable pegs and shift lever to give these old knees some room.

Got the topbox back from the powder coater. Not sure I posted a pic of "before" but the PO had rattle-can painted it black and red. Now it is silver again. Gotta get the hardware/latches and such back on at some point.

So far, so good and still < $3500 into it.
