Bled the front brakes, then gassed the bike up after washing the affects of my other work, greasy fingerprints and oil mess.
Then I packed up the boxes to see how all my gear fits.

Ordered some new shoes too. Now, just a free weekend and I can get dirty.

Oh, put on my new Wolfman soft (saddle) bags too! they're the smaller ones for day-tripping or light overnighting.

My first thought: that ain't gonna be cheap!

I've rebuilt my right crash bar about 3x times. Added a small triangle gusset the last time and didn't need to do it again.

Pull off both crash bars and take to your local welder, he can compare the L/R and make them the same. Then have him add a 1" x 1" triangle gusset behind that little tube on each side. $50 - WAG.

Let there be light

Threw a PIAA h4 bulb in the US spec head light on my 990. Not lighting any butts off the lens but its definitely brighter than stock. Discovered there's plenty of flex in the fairing covers just removing the 3 top bolts, (have bars on it). Real easy.

Crash bars

Thanks for the ideas. A local welder sounds like the way to go if I decide to keep running them. They came with the bike, so I have never run it without them. After reading the Oso Loco Taco Tour ride report, though, I am tempted to roll without them.

Cheers,
Lance

Put on 16/45 gears on my 950. Holy crap! The bike is completely transformed. I just about melted my Pirelli Rally rear tire in second gear.
