Cut and moved Gobi rack brace.

I'll try post pics later. Cut off rear left brace on Gobi racks and moved back about 1". Object was to make getting cap off my Neduro aux tank easier. Before was PIA to get gas cap off aux tank so was hardly ever using it. Now with brace moved back comes right off with no interference when have racks on bike. Cut, ground to fit and re-weld/re-paint.

1. Installed alien screen.

2. Redid the wiring for the heated grips because it was a crap installation done in 10 min by some idiot at the dealer, MUCH tidier now.

3. Installed and did the wiring for my Zumo 660, wired it so it turns off the power with the ignition. I found a really good place for my Zumo on the dash and it looks super tidy. I'm not sure if it will stay in place in the rough stuff though. If not I'll have to make something sturdier with a metal support bracket and so on, we'll see.

Rainy cold miserable day here so a good time to do some stuff.

Nah, you'd laugh at it

It's e-x-p-e-r-i-m-e-n-t-a-l and might fall off, I'll get back to you after my first ride with it

It looks good though....

Today I finally fitted Petunia with a proper set of off-road shoes. She's now wearing a new pair of Continental TKC-80s, which I always found to be a great tire for the dirt, and amazingly good on asphalt as well.

I also fitted another RAM mount on the front of the crashbar, just next to the front wheel, for my VHoldr. I won't mount the camera there for gnarly dirt work as a tip over would trash the thing, but for less crash-prone stuff it should be allow for some cool perspective.

Put a new TKC 80 and UHD tube on the front. Used just the tools I carry on the bike. No problems. I will be mounting the rear today.

That's funny... it was my first thought, too. But if there's a nice stubby lever available, I'd prefer to do it that way. Local dealer was supposed to get one yesterday but I was out of town, so I'll call today.
If it doesn't work out, I'ma start cutting!

Mounted up a new Dunlop 606 front tire, installed new rear brake pads and found that my right side gobi pannier latch is broken.

Postman delivered a replacement HID bulb as the scrote who stole my bike smashed the other one.
So I fitted the old ballast and the nee HID to the new one

Well, the stubby lever is on back order and may be weeks or months away. I'm headed to the garage to adjust the master cylinder down a bit and redo the right side handguard installation (some bending of handguard) and chop off the clutch lever so I can put the left side handguard on correctly (more bending).
Then, of course, I'm going riding.

I made my Mt. Bike Rack

Yesterday's project:


It was pretty easy with parts from my Yakima Cage-Rack, three wing nuts and the long Yakima track goes off/on. I even found a use for my old stock rack; It holds the front fork mount over my back seat and keeps the bike & more weight right behind me & makes it stick out the back a little less. That part uses two long Allen bolts. My wife won't trust enough to ride bitch anyway.



Today is make the SKI RACK day!! The roads are clear all the way (22 miles from my house) to the parking lot at Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Area, so why not RIDE?
