Repaired and re-painted the L mirror. (PO went down and tore it up.) What a chore! Did save some $ since I had everything I needed here at my shop already.  ;D

Installed my Ronnies Highway pegs.

Went out for a ride before the cold n wet hit again.  Made it two miles and a young lady, who must have thought the entire road was hers alone, decided to make a U turn from the right hand lane at a RR crossing.  I was in the left lane trying to figure her out.   I screamed at her, but with my helmet on, the only ones who heard me were God and myself.  He must have decided I wouldn't have a wreck today, and was able to avoid her LF fender by low single digit inches.  These bikes are more nimble than I thought, especially when they HAVE to be...tp

I think M60s may be a bit much. An MP5 on each side however........ ;D

my new PR4 and EBC brakes showed up yesterday, and I had today off..... So I spent the afternoon in my garage. Used my DIY tire mounting system and some Dynabeads to balance the new PR4s. I wish the roads  where not so wet and sloppy(salt and road grime) it would have been nice to go for a little spin.

Come on down to Texas or Florida.  Kinda cold here the next couple of days, but Nicole is having great weather in Florida.  80's there.  Wish it was the same here, so I could ride to work n back.... tp

Well not so much today but for the winter up here in Ma. I have: installed dp brake pads f&r used a disc grinder to clean up rotors, changed the fork oil with Honda fluid using traxxion tools, cleaned and greased the stem bearings, delkevic slip on and pulled the flies. I'm now trying to sort the use of a pc5. That's all for now

Tom, it pains me too look at the weather map and see how nice it is at home.  We're about 2 hrs away from the dock in Mobile AL, and it is blowing 30 out of the North and is going to be in the 30s for my cargo watch tonight. It's a miserable day to work on the water! Oh and just for the record...  I HATE WINTER!

+1...that's why we need to mount M60's on the bike.

if you get that MOT'ed, then why not go the whole why and get M134s on each side? One forward, one backwards. Like those mototerminators in T4 Salvation (although those were Ducati's).
Build bridges, not walls.

Education is important. Riding my bike is importanter.
