OMG what a pretty day- finally got in a ride (all the snow and freezing rain and such gone).  66 - 70F, sunny, roads mostly clear.  100 miles of happy-face :)  Spring fever......

Didn't you have even an inkling of using the banana, Max?

Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

No, after all this weather stuff.  I knew there was a car under there somewhere....

Performed some P.M. on the new 2014 Connie's battery today. I just picked the new bike up from the dealership yesterday.  Removed the battery housing side plate. To find a finger tip loose positive terminal and the plastic terminal boot pulled away. Leaving the positive terminal exposed.  In turn I, removed the battery and checked the terminals. Applied, corrugated auto electric tubing to all the cables. Additional cable sheathing protection is a good thing. Based on a prior experience with the 09 Connie. Tightened the terminal fittings and applied white lithium grease to the terminals. Tightened up the ground wires and applied lithium grease to them as well.  Replaced the side plate and plastic fitting. Hand tightened. Started the motor and checked all instrument readouts.  A brief ride to recheck settings and systems. All systems operational.

Applied the new "Tech Spec Snakeskin"  to the gas tank and lower leg areas. Applied an additional set to the panniers.  The only thing left to add is the "Fenda Extenda"  I'm still waiting for that to arrive.  My two wheeled mistress, is road ready.

More as things develop.

I had to look twice...I thought for a second it read 200km/hr.

I wish, the local speed tax collectors frown on that kind of behavior.  >:(

Installed my ECU after Guhl reflash and took the bike for a ride. Unbelievable! Wish I had done that a year ago. Best mod I have made to the bike. Now it runs like it should have all along if the EPA would have allowed it. I would recommend the Guhl reflash to any C14 owner.
