Dan I was checking out this build....while roaming around looking at pictures he little Knuck popped up. I am going to keep an eye on this guy. I have watched his other RTW trips on his sportbike in the past. He is beyond hard core.

I am waiting for you to produce a Smoked Porter...I had one in Seattle now I am hooked.....

Happy Holidays!!!!

Nopo has it, safely in the fridge.

Dan- I'll hit you up when I get home on the 28th.

Happy chrissmus y'all, or whatever seasonal superstitious practice you're into.

Let There Be Light !!!!!

I finally had a chance to lock myself in my shop and work on the XRL Auxiliary Light Project . It took a lot longer than it should have because I'm a bit anal with small details and the "hydration Beers" got a bit carried away.

With the use of a relay and a three position waterproof switch I have a couple options for control. Switch in one position the LED lights are on as long as the key is on. Switch in position two the LED lights are off. Switch in position three the LED lights come on with the High Beam Headlight. With that option I can run the non-DOT flame throwers on the highway and douse them by hitting the oem dimmer switch.











Now it is time for extensive durability testing.......

there is a water retention factor with all them bubbly fizzes.
You might concentrate on more refined(distilled) libations to lessen the impact of caloric intake vs. water retention,,just sayin,,,the more I drink whiskey,,the thinner I get!

Turn on the lights***

I finally had so time to install a couple items. The lights were first


I had a bit of a wire mess that needed to be straighten out


I had purchased a Vapor a few months ago, didn't like the stock mount, so I made a custom one

bolted it in


installed the temp and tack sensors

fired it up

Now is the time to ride, anyone want to join me?
