Paint? The matte finish looks slick.

Too bad we're on opposite sides of the country, I'd love to have a look at it.

Thanks for the new desktop background!

Anybody who's good with P-shop can edit out those horizontal lines in the road?

Got the harness, got the R/R, got the bike apart & ready to proceed with install -- only to find out that the Rick's Electric R/R is significantly smaller & slimmer than the OEM part. I need shorter bolts.
Normally not a problem, but no hardware stores are open on Thanksgiving (the only time I have). Now I gotta fight Black Friday for $2 worth of hardware.

With my projects, it's always something.

Yup. I can now count on 4 trips+ back to the bike shop/Home Depot/parts store etc any time I work on anything.

I just semi-retired my 2000 VFR800. In 4 years I've had it, it saw about 140000km, comprised of several rides around North America. Getting a bit worn out now though, so I felt some urgency to start abusing something a bit younger.

It was and still is a spectacular bike. Available parts, accessories, experienced mechanics, looks, decent power, comfortable, etc. I probably wouldn't have upgraded yet if I didn't find such a great deal on my dream CBR1100xx a month ago.

Still riding just a few miles north of you Joe?. Tend to take either the Man'strom or the FJR (both with big windshields) when it's this cool though. The Viffer just doesn't throw enough heat this time of year. ;-)

Won't be long till the evil white stuff takes over the roads. By that I mean salt, not snow.

That is quite the stable. Is there snow on the ground up there? I've seen trees around here budding its been so warm.

I just ordered some bootleg Hippo Hands to go with the Oxford grips (which are awesome), and I'm hoping Santa brings a MRA VarioTouring Screen to stop the wind from hitting me in the neck. I suppose I should wash her and apply the T9 Boeshield before it gets too cold and salty out there. The bike has more than enough electrical output; running the high beam, 2 LED lights, heated grips, Warm'n'Safe gloves, Bel radar, and charging my phone and the voltmeter stays in the green. Couldn't ask for a better machine.
