They are nice looking cases.
So debating the exhaust extension. Going to be running ceramic coated exhaust w/o cat and stock muffler with Jesses.
Got my lights wired yesterday and new battery and air filter today.
Changed the oil and filter ready for the first service...tomorrow.
GT, would you mind telling me what box that it in place of the pillion seat
Ahhh, I should be on a commission....
Adventure designs rear seat box.
It's nice, shame they didn't make it a bit bigger, looks like it could have gone a bit more all round.
Yes, it could be a few inches higher.
Flew interstate to Wodonga and picked this up, nice ride home and cleaned it
Took advantage of last week's unusually... even for California... warm weather and rode up the Mendocino coast. Stopped at the Pt. Arena Lighthouse for a strecth break and a photo. Pt. Arena is 130 miles away from San Francisco, yet in the 1906 earthquake, the lighthouse here was destroyed. I've been through a few shakers in my time, but that truly must have been something!
If you have panniers then I fully recommend the extension. When I bought my bike from the PO it was all black on the rack and clearly had been getting hot. I swap between soft and hard bags so not good. I was fortunate that a extension appeared in the Flea Market within a month of my purchase. Now all the heat and exhaust is well behind the rack.
I've jokingly mentioned referral discounts or up front discounts to some 3rd parties....they always gently let me down.MAMoto did give me $20 off their hand-guards.. Video will probably do 4,000 views this year on the install. I hope they make their money back :)
I'm not sour about it but I see MCN and other publications get outright free stuff or month with a demo bike. A lot of companies are under-estimating the power of Youtube still. I make revenue on the back-end around $300 a month and about $50 a month on Amazon associates referrals so it's not for nothing..besides, I enjoy sharing photos & videos so I'd do it for free anyway.
I opted to make a heat shield instead of extensions.
Anyone run Jesse Top Box w/ AltRider's GSAW Luggage plate? Are these compatible?
I tried, once, and it can be done. I couldn't figure out how to make it a quick release, though.
I have this that came w/ the boxes and this does work:
of course when the top box is off the bike, I'd like a luggage grid that matches my pillion plate which is AltRider.
How do you pull that off? Not that I've not already farkled things up such that doing videos for most of it would be backwards, but I still have some stuff on my fiance's bike that needs to be put on. Plus, I do lots of other tinkering (I've an M416 trailer I need to convert to a good off-road camper and an MGB that needs a full bare metal restomoding) of things that if I could post and make money, I'd be happy to do so.
Everyone that has the skills and 4 hours a week should take it up! It's pretty easy money. Here are the requirements to be YT Partnered - https://support.google.com/youtube/answer/72851?hl=en

At that point, start creating content. Yes there are a million videos about wiring an outlet or installing a fan, changing oil or buffing out a rusty door panel but if you apply it to something more specialized like "Rust Fix on Volkswagen GTI MK7" you'll get a more niche audience and over time, you gain a subscriber base that is owners of that car or bike, etc. So get as niche as you want because eventually everyone will need to watch a video to pick up that skill. 74,000 people have watched me wrap my steering wheel with a leather part from China. I regret that wasn't a part available on amazon
Because... people click the link in the description and if they buy it, you get a 1% kick back (sometimes more) and if they add anything else to their car in that session, you earn some of that as well. I had someone recently buy a car-seat for their kid, 500 diapers and a knife set along with some VW remote batteries I had linked to and I made $15.
YouTube will sell ads against your content. Revzilla also has a referral program for anything they carry.
Sweet - great info to have. I'll have to look into this.
