Nice bike!
Honestly, I was debating buying a 990R but decided that I like this one too much so gave it a renewal instead.

I'm only a days south of you and we're snow free in the bush, shouldn't be long before the melt creeps north. If it does and you get twitchy, come on down for a ride

That would be cool but a day down and a day back doesn't leave much time for riding (highway doesn't count). I was hoping to attend the EOAR again this year but it falls on the same weekend as my daughter's dance recital and I can't miss that two years in a row

I've only had it out for one short ride (still winterish here) but it is certainly a real arm-stretcher! Sounds like we may have a nice weekend ahead so hopefully I'll have it ready to roll on time.

1.) You need to make your own TPS bracket,
2.) Starting in cold temps could be difficult, and even to the point of depleting the battery...

Still, I want a set!

Laugh

Built an easy on/off topcase mount to fit a Pelican 1550 onto the stock rack.





Then I took the $0.74 washer and welded it to the bottom of my kickstand!

Should have taken 2 full seconds, I see a bubble.



Just kidding, looks nice.

Time for a new rear sneaker.

Gonna try the MEFO Super Explorer on the rear, I hope I like it.
I installed the MEFO up front last summer, seems decent.
Oil change at the same time.

Sure!

I actually just made this one out of scrap I had laying around. Would be pretty simple to do again.

I'm thinking about putting a more refined design into CAD if this one works out well so I could just crank a few out.
