It crossed my mind but I'm currently out of RPG's. It's in the mail, though.

My old home made $7 manometer has served me well for my airheads and oilhead over the years, however, I just received a 'new to me' Harmonizer which is in absolutely immaculate condition.

After a quick oil and filter change today I took the bike out to get it to working temp to try my new toy.

OMG! This thing is amazing, who would have thunk that this state of the art digital device would be easier and more accurate than my jobber filled with chain saw oil...

Hats off to Grok, this toy is right up with Skene's P3 lights, 90 degree valve stems and HID's. (.....and I mean way up there!)

Added Satelite radio for my upcoming trip to Nova Scotia...transmits on FM and gets received by my Scala headset...antenna placement took a little thought. Acquires signal quickly and seems to work very well. I already had the Sirius radio in my truck so I was able to rig it up for the bike for $50...$30 for the Sirius car kit and $20 for the RAM mount. Can swap it from truck to bike in a minute.

Installed my new Booster Plug, and a Kruz Locker. Bad wind storm hit so haven't got to try them yet, maybe tomorrow morning.

GS run

I installed my new Vario saddle-bags, removed the stock and beaten skid-plate and installed a new TT skid and crash-bars. Checked the tire pressuer and went for what I thought would be a short ride.

Made it home 2 and half hours later!! Love this machine!
Twisty country backroads are a kick!

Then found my girl actually LIKES to ride!!

Really really good day.
