Tip: don't call the guy with the Smart phone because he'll just ask you to send him your GPS coordinates.
Uhm! someone owes me a beer :)

I do, most definately. Pick an establishment and time and I'm buying!

Holy heck.. at the end it looked like you were going the wrong way on a one way... I guess the "right of weight" rule is used more than right of way!

I'll bet that old man was having a heart attack as you were coming at him on the grass overtaking the bus.
I nearly turned myself into a bus mascot yesterday. Blind corner, lovely corner actually and I was enjoying it.... until a pair of buses appeared. I had to stand the bike up... brake hard and fast and spear off to the side, all within a few metres. Pure instinct and very very fucking close call..... inches... at speed. I've written 1,000 lines overnight.... I will not enjoy blind corners, I will only enjoy open corners....

Installed a high fender, second brake line, rerouted some wiring infront of the upper triple, adjusted my new chain slack, bled my front brakes and took it for a spin. Of course that all took way longer then it should've .

Gotta re-bleed my brakes (didn't have quite the stopping power of normal), adjust my bar position, and figure out what's up with the toasted rubber smell that lingered a bit after the ride. It was my first ride on new tires and new UHD tubes so maybe that has something to do with it.

Superplush suspension is awesome! Though the stiffer springs make the bike really really tall for my short ass legs.

I rode a 150 scooter for a few days in heavy traffic in Saigon (when we went back to visit my wife's family)... that road is mellow in comparison. Direction of travel and signals are all more suggestions than rules

Passing the trucks and buses on the left rut of the road? Looked fun!

I think scooter/motorcycle accidents are still the #1 killer in Vietnam. Yeah... stay alive and only play on the open corners!

I got my compact air horn installed. No pics. I had to drop from 2 spare tubes to one in order to fit it in the fairing. I used the HOW instructions as a guide.
That horn really gets your attention.

Installed a locking license plate box and a set of hyperlites. Also shown in this picture is the fabbed Givi mount to BDCW top rack setup...basically two 10" mending plates from H-D with associated washer/nyloc nuts, etc. It's rock-solid and removes/installs in ~5 minutes.

Strebel copy. Great price. I ordered 2 more to replace the wimpy sheep horns on my honda del sols too.

I Did seperate the unit into 2 parts in order to install in the side cover.

Here's the HOW article.
