17 Jan 2013 and its 82F here!! Took my jacket liner out then went for a cruise to PCH to cool off-



Yes the little silver trim/bezel thing flew off the other day-waiting on the new one to come in. I kinda like the dash all black, might pull it off the new cover and paint it black.



72F thats more like it..






Carry on......

RoyQ,

Great pics. Nice looking place to ride.

And yea, repeating that trip with K60's will be a different experience.
Same great views. But substantially better handling.

From what I've read, using the Rox risers requires cable lengthening. Was that your experience?

Thanks.

That's true with the 2" (or taller) *PIVOTING* Rox Risers - http://www.roxspeedfx.com/cgi-bin/ca...parts_id=10081 - and you *DO* have to get longer hydraulic hoses, but not throttle cables.

But not with the Offset Block ones I posted previously. I made no cable, hydraulic hose, or wiring changes to fit them to my bike, and have ridden that way for over 20,000 miles with them installed.

BTW, please note that the 1.75" *PIVOTING* risers - http://www.roxspeedfx.com/cgi-bin/ca...parts_id=10037 - will *NOT* work either, but for different reasons. With them there is not enough room between Rox's upper clamp and the pivot bar to all the OEM Yamaha upper bar clamps to fit in there.

Hope this helps!

Dallara

A little more Nor Cal Winter

A bit chilly at the house but surprisingly warm at the coast, they tell me there is some little surf competition going on this weekend near here. Not ready to break out the wet suit, but perfect riding. Real adventurous

Any body want to see cruise ship pictures?

Snorkel shots? Wife in a swim suit? I was going to say fat people on
the beach, but that's kinda subjective with a guy my size.

Anyway, out of the Utah cold and quite sunburned today.
