Well, tonight I met Vivid Dadas and although I had stereotyped the entire county as rednecks, he is a really nice guy.

Screw that. Steady speeds are better.

Plus, it's a gadget.

I also drive at a slower pace with my wife and loaded down. I will confirm of Thursday.

Today I drove Logan to McArthur and returned to Nelsonville 328-278 great roads new asphalt on 278

Short 3min clips. nothing new, poor quality.

Nice find, somebody should snap that up.

How was your trip? I'm going to put those Tourance take-offs to good use in a few weeks. Thanks

Trip was alot of fun, we rode quite a bit around the finger lakes. Beautiful country up there. We swapped bikes with a friend for a while the one day. I realized we need to upgrade to adventure suspension, it made a big difference. And we need to get custom seats. The Corbin kills me and two up there's less room to move around.

Oh yea, thanks Shawn for recommending those tires, I really like them, we did about 5 hrs in the rain on the way home and the handled great.

Rostra. From http://www.murphskits.com/catalog/pr...roducts_id=369

I am following these:

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=622697

http://users.tpg.com.au/roger38//Rostra%20XT1200Z.htm


I decided to mount the unit under the seat instead of the "engine cavity". I took the top "pan" out (ABS Cover?), and it fits good near the ABS unit and the High seat setting. Low seat setting works, but, is not ideal. The heck with short people. I never store anything under the seat, so, perfect spot. Out of the weather and away from the heat.

I might get the mechanical stuff done tonight. Deciding how I want to attach the cable to the throttle. In from the front or up from underneath. Wiring after that. The wiring is easy, it will just take a while.

I won't solder, just cut the wires and wrap them in duct tape. No, No, just kidding!
