That is how some of the conversation started at our house. If she does get her permit I might have to buy another scooter, I ride this one too much

Nice!

Would be cool to have a matching set, but I think for the wife, I might end up with something with bigger wheels and a front basket etc. Girlie stuff ya know

Rio Nido road house last weekend in set should be the date again, see ya there?

where did you get the rubber plate. I bought some in 05 from a place, still had the part number too but they dont sell it.

Tech Spec Gripster Traction Pads, Universal Sheet 7.5"x12"
You cut out for a dirtbike tank grip but now I cant find it anywhere.

Garmin GPS. Only issue is the one I caught will power off if I hit a large bump. Not a huge deal but kinda annoying, need to see if there is a easy fix for that other then wire it for power.


I seem to like to stretch out and not use the floor board too much, so I cut out some of my fav rubber diamond plate and stuck it on so it has some more grip and doesn't look so messy with all the scuffs etc on the smooth plastic.
(very klr I know!)



now to figure out the rear rack thingy since they are on back order from Japan.

Might go the welding route O'Hooligan mentioned
but I need to find a damn welder first that is local

Was it like a floor mat? I was thinking about maybe a car mat that has a design like that. If only I could find that mat I had years ago that looked exactly like that, but no one sell it anymore and it was self adhesive.
I would buy some from you if you could just rough cut 2 pieces then I can fine tune it to fit
