At first he thought it was just a little road rash. Got home and started peeing
blood and throwing up. Off to ER. Torn kidney. So I was up seeing him.

Got home and was too excited to get the light on. So 1:30 am I'm out getting the
light adjusted.
I wisely decided to read the instructions this morning. I've mounted the
light upside down. I'll fix that later. It's really an impressive beam! Can't wait until
it's the right pattern.

Wired it so it came on with the high beams. That was a treat finding the high beam trigger wire
for the relay. NOT!

Oh and a bonus wheel shot of the Woody's rear rim set up.

I guess the BB production will be down today. Cool light

Are you kidding? I'm a professional. No-Doz and Mountain Dew is my secret. I may set a
new personal best on the BB stack.

There is just something about that shaft/pumpkin/wheel/K60 that is ART to me.

Begs to take you somewhere you haven't ever been.

And that combo can deliver.

Here is a little light test between standard low beam and the LED light bar
combined with high beam.













The color is so much more white with the LED on. The stock beam looks weak
and yellow when you're on the bike. There wasn't any difference when I flipped
the light over tonight.

Since it was Halloween I found a costume that finally fit me.....

Why is everybody always picking on me? We full figured people have feelings too.



Oh, and please don't send that to Amy. The ones I've been sending her are, well maybe, just a little different.

The LED light bar is just the size I was looking for.. Apparently it's available in 2 beam patterns: flood and a driving beam.. I priced both locally and the flood is about $50 or $60 less. My guess is you have the driving lights beam above?

Yes, this is the driving beam set up. The link is to where I ordered it from. They also have the flood pattern for like
$185. The mounts fit like it was made for the Tenere. Slight modification to the mounting arms is all.

Thanks Pluric, for a mature "geezer", you're not only a chick magnet but also a superb farkelator! Wait a minute, I resemble that remark

Did I just get hit on by a Mod? Please tell me you're female.



You can now enjoy riding at night.
