Yeah, now you are trying to be polite
You need to make up your mind. Do you want the real me or the phoney polite guy?
Of course the real you... much more fun!!
you may want to take some lessons on how to set the correct exposure on your camera oser
He only takes good pictures when there is a nice girl
Talk to Sony. It said "Point and shoot" and I did.
You want nice photos check out this guys RR. Fantastic photo work.
I think I saw his motorcycle
Ya but, that's red. OMG, there's more of them than I thought.:eek1
Was a great day to get out and ride. Pony Express trail in Western Utah
Can't resist posting the pup....
New guy here. Really enjoy your posts as you seem like the same sick SOBs I've been blessed (cursed) with working with throughout my career as a grunt/ LEO.
Coupla Q's for you on the new lights...didja happen to photograph how you wired 'em in to the high beams? Would you be able to comment on the differences between the two available versions ( floods vs. the spots)? Is one better for the road? My main concern is getting a good set of lights that will make me more visible without blinding other motorists. I'm really diggin these.
Oh man, here it goes. Backing up a little I started with a power distribution bar so I
wouldn't have to keep coming off the battery. It's also on a relay control so I can't leave
the heated grips on or other outlets.
Here is the bar installed. 6 fused power outlets.
Relay location for power bar,
Now for the light bar I wanted it controlled by the high/low beam switch. The high beam
wire is yellow. I traced it down to the wiring block just above the battery inside the round
black rubber cover. (circled) I cut back the wrapped wire harness enough to tie into the
yellow wire. I stuck with the same color to avoid confusion. (arrow) That comes back to the
new relay switch for the light bar. Run a power wire from the power outlet under the seat
and a ground wire and you're almost done. Hook them to the relay and from the relay a
light bar wire to the red and ground the other light wire you should be good to go.
Here is where I mounted the relay for the light bar.
I've only had just this style of light. I don't know the difference between it and a flood.
The pattern of the driving style is perfect for what I wanted. I have it adjusted so it's more
like low beam and the brightness is amazingly better than stock. I'm really pleased with
the light, how it fits the bike and the ease of using the OEM switch. At first ir was looking
like a real pain to get the high beam trip wire. I just got lucky when found the yellow wire
in the lower harness.
Depending on how you have the light bar adjusted it shouldn't blind anyone much more than the
high beam. I have not stood in front of the bike to test out how bad it is.
It really was a gorgeous day. Driving home it was in the high 50s and I just kept thinking
if you have to wear gear this is the perfect temp.
"Pup?" If that's a pup don't get it a saddle yet. It will just out grow it.
I thought maybe Budweiser was missing one of it's wagon pullers.:eek1
Hey Jaumev, I'm trying to work out if your photo was taken at the same place as these? (I think it was on the C-462)
If not, I guess that it must be somewhere in the same area.
This is where we were riding this year and last year.
This is exactly the same place!! Small world. :eek1
I live in Vic, near Manresa (see your map). We did a wonderful off road trip from near Barcelona to Andorra. In the way back we took this road and stop to do some pictures of the first snow in the Pyrenees.
Ive got some videos in this place.. Today Im going to load them to Youtube.
Did you like the area?
This are my colleagues in there
Ok, I'm thinking this is a little beyond my abilities at the moment, but definitely a project I wanna tackle.
Thanks for the Pics & Info
It's really not hard to do. Forget the power bar and just come right off the battery to the relay.
It's only going to provide power when you switch the high beam on. Electrical Pussy.
Just got mine in the mail today, thanks for the heads up on this light...
Its very well made, I cant wait to get it on the bike. Even in the day time it was crazy bright when I did a bench test with it.:eek1:eek1
I can't take credit. I'm sure I've seen it on another thread. I'm just not that original.
You will like it though.
Great name for a rock band!!
