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

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.

I put a 2 Brothers can on and got rid of that cartoonist looking contraption. Very simple to do,  even more so the second time when I mounted it straight. Next up... move the Adaptiv over to the right side and mount my antique Zumo 550 on the left. I'm embarrassed to ask but,  where is the key lock for the seat? All I have is the owners manual and the picture is less than ideal.
Thanks

while I didn't do this today, it was a combination of last weekend and tomorrow. Changed out the pipe for a two brothers carbon black series, BMC air filter and just got my ecu back from Guhl yesterday so that will be going in tomorrow.

feb 2nd I ordered my seat from Corbin, still waiting on that and was told Tuesday by them that another couple weeks. I hope dealing with them wasn't a mistake as they seem to be in a now rush, when I ordered it they told me 3-4 weeks...it is starting to feel more like 2-3 months!

It took 3 or 4 weeks to get mine but rest assured, it will come and the quality is outstanding.

I couldn't tell you. My drinking got away from me a LONG time ago so I had to quit. You know the guy that turns in to a real  :censored: when he drinks? That's me. If you think I'm bad now, add alcohol and see what happens....
