    Funny you mention it. My job require me to advance to Master Sergeant and I would be attending school from august, then i got pushed to the start of april. As i don´t own a car anymore and my Yamaha XT 250 would be killed with my big ass and luggage to southern Denmark( 230km). I need the big bike ready for this ASAP. I couldn´t predict this and Svane and I are hauling to get this a safe and reliable bike.

    Did some late night working yesterday with Svane. He kicked some butt with the wiring fir te extra stuff i´ve been asking. I grabbed a hammer and started with the Xenon projektor mounts.

    Great tool

    The end result for now. Not to happy but i will mount it up and see how it sits when everything is bolted together.

    After that i mounted the damper on the Emig triple. Had to file it down to make it fit, but worked out great. Did order the frame post with the extra tall pin(63mm) so it should work out fine.

    Svane worked all night on the electric setup on the front. Cleaning up all wiring, sleeving and connected the 4 buttons on the HDB setup.

    1: Map = Which map on the Bazzaz i will run.
    2: GPS = On or off 12v. This one will include my voltmeter.
    3: Aux light = My LED lights in the front. When ON they will fire with the long light and the long flashing/overtaking light.
    4: Start = Would be when i park my bike a secure place and i´ve got the tank bag mounted. I will not need to take off the tank bag to cut the ignition.

    So far so good
