Oh. And what is it an abbreviation of? It should end with a period then, as that denotes an abb.
my carbon fibre RAM ball mount, i wasnt paying migsel prices either
Ohh, I understand just fine I'm just sceptical at heart
Ah, you know Mr. Murphy I see.
OK, just to be anal (I am), I think you mean farkles is an abbreviation as in F.A.R.K.L.E, or "Fancy Accessory, Really Kool, Likely Expensive". ("farkle" I don't mind, but yeah, that contrived phrase is really stupid!)
That's an acronym, because it's pronounced like a word (sonar, AIDS, laser), not to be confused with an initialism, which is sounded out by speaking the letters (FBI, USA, CPU).
Both are indeed abbreviations (any shortened version of a word or phrase).
Sorry! I was a Teknacul Riter for 15 years!
Don't get me started on dangling participles! (they're something you should never end a sentence with!)
You should just buy a 125 if you want something that light and nimble
On serious note - OUCH!
I thought it was 1/2 of 2 words put together F***ing Sparkles
I believe it was "function" + "sparkle" = farkels
Been doing more stuff to my 6Forty, now that she runs!
Here's the platform I had welded to the roadbook mount and then attached the RAM mount for a camera/video/etc & mounts for the GPSrs, yes there are 2, 1 for road nav and 1 for trail nav. I really need to find a good GPSr that does the job that these two do!
And this tab that was welded on to the center forward strut bar of the roadbook for power using Boschs version of a surface mount BMW style plug.[/QUOTE]
Be sure to make a small hole on the bottom of the receptacle to allow any water to drain out. They are not meant to be mounted with the opening upwards. Trapped water will start electrolysis between the terminals.
Yep, got that covered. There is a notch at the bottom where the wires come out that doesn't seal and when the male plug isn't in, which will be very rare, I have a large vacuum-port cap that fits snugly inside.
BTW GS Addict, thanks for those sockets and plugs, they work well and are very well built, much better than the flush mount one's with the trap door and way better for this application!
I'm glad you are satisfied!
Spread the word! I now stock them in Vendors
Some people use silicone (caulk) to secure them, but this is IMHO more robust.[/quote]
I use silicone on my road bikes and have never had a problem with a link clip coming adrift and if you use white silicone the link is easy to find to inspect.
I actually only use "sikkaflex" brand.
I'd love to see a how-to on this.
great idea, if you can't leave it at home! For cheap PV panels, do a search on Ebay for Volkswagon PV, they are used to keep car batterys maintained during transport on ships!
I tucked the ammo can under the rack so I can still put some soft bags on when needed, I also see some RotoPax in my near future
IIRC RoyB has a website with a bunch of his home-brewed concoctions photo-documented in detail . . . . . .
Harley passenger footpegs for highway pegs on a Kaw Versys
Back end of $15 Cycra KTM front fender for a mud flap
Does this count?
I took and ugly-ass Dell Nickelodeon mini 10V netbook and installed Mac OSX on it. I wanted to be able to power it off the bike, so I bought a cigarette lighter charger off fleabay, gutted it, then re-cased with Powerlet plug and shorted cord.
Hackintosh - note the charging indicator. The netbook went from stone cold empty battery to 32% charged after about 40 minutes of running off the bike.
I added velcro to the speedy box to make cable-bundling & packing easy and compact. Green power LED is sort of visible in this shot, it glows green when powered on. Surprisingly, it doesn't get more than a little warm, I had it stuffed in my tankbag, no fires.
Bundled up DC adapter sitting on ugly-ass closed netbook. I tried to use bad-ass stickers to cover up the case "slimed" graphics.
