Nice plate. Say, I have been curious- you proudly display your plate and some people photoshop them out. I have wondered why they photoshop them?

People can look up your information via DMV from one's plate.

Try googling your name some time. Be afraid...there is no privacy any more. Either accept it...or don't.

I figure it's just not worth the fight anymore.

Today my evil twin rests as she needs a well deserved bath and some maintenance. She just did 1,035 miles yesterday getting me from the middle of Nebraska to my home in Ohio. In six days we hit 12 states and covered 4,022 miles solo. Never a hiccup or complaint from the bike. Don't let anyone tell you can't rack up some miles on a 800. Bike is mostly stock with a custom XPC gripper seat, Touratech rear rack and a headlight guard. Tires were Shinko 705's.

Pretty much looks like any 6 year old F800gs:

Well I am 6 years older too(71) and tired of tip toeing this bike at every stop sign, so I lowered it.

A 5mm shorter rear Yacugar shock. Out with Bitubo cartridge, in with the stocker with a Ohlins .55kg/mm spring and 10 wt oil with a 120mm airgap. The only good thing about the Bitubo cartridge is I was able to use the fork cap, so the forks are adjustable for preload.

If anyone is interested, I have used Hyperpro and Bitubo springs on the front and Hyperpros on the stock shock, while going from 200lb to 175lbs in weight..

Seat concepts with softer than usual foam.

The bike is 1" lower than stock with a minimal loss of travel, but I gained the ability to flatfoot this sucker without dropping it yet.

So far, it is a good improvement over stock.

I did the same, 44mm lower. But share what you did with the side and center stands. My side stand is still stock, but since I cut the center stand lower, it strikes the side stand. I can only retract the center stand first, then the side stand second. One of these days I'll fix that.

The wife and I had 2 each. City and touring. I've sold my City '12 Triple Black and her Tourer just went up for sale. Wrecky was a cheap rebuild that came out awesome. It'll be based in Nicaragua.

No.

Nope.

I looked.

It's just the resultant shine from a 5 y.o. polishing pieces for $1/day.
