    Yes the little silver trim/bezel thing flew off the other day-waiting on the new one to come in. I kinda like the dash all black, might pull it off the new cover and paint it black.

    RoyQ,

    Great pics. Nice looking place to ride.

    And yea, repeating that trip with K60's will be a different experience.
    Same great views. But substantially better handling.

    From what I've read, using the Rox risers requires cable lengthening. Was that your experience?

    Thanks.

    That's true with the 2" (or taller) *PIVOTING* Rox Risers - http://www.roxspeedfx.com/cgi-bin/cart/showdetails.cgi?parts_id=10081 - and you *DO* have to get longer hydraulic hoses, but not throttle cables.

    But not with the Offset Block ones I posted previously. I made no cable, hydraulic hose, or wiring changes to fit them to my bike, and have ridden that way for over 20,000 miles with them installed.

    BTW, please note that the 1.75" *PIVOTING* risers - http://www.roxspeedfx.com/cgi-bin/cart/showdetails.cgi?parts_id=10037 - will *NOT* work either, but for different reasons. With them there is not enough room between Rox's upper clamp and the pivot bar to all the OEM Yamaha upper bar clamps to fit in there.

    Hope this helps!

    A bit chilly at the house but surprisingly warm at the coast, they tell me there is some little surf competition going on this weekend near here. Not ready to break out the wet suit, but perfect riding. Real adventurous :lol3:lol3

    Any body want to see cruise ship pictures?

    Snorkel shots? Wife in a swim suit? I was going to say fat people on
    the beach, but that's kinda subjective with a guy my size.:shog

    Anyway, out of the Utah cold and quite sunburned today.:D

    I like that 5100. It seems to be a cracker of a camera, either that or it's a piece of crap with a great photographer behind it :D

    And did you realize you look just like the guy in your avatar..:lol3

    It's funny looking at my avatar now, that WAS a current picture in 2004 when I joined this site :lol3

    Yeah the 5100 is the KLR of the DSLR world, no respect, cheap but gets the job done if you do your part:deal

    I would be interested to see any more pics that you have showing your H&B crash bars, and to hear your thoughts on them. I like them and am trying to make my mind up at the moment. Thanks.
