    TV commercial in Huntsville AL say Las Vegas is open. Neat commercial. Showed all the city lights being turned illuminated.

    Traffic has picked back up. We'll see what happens. They stopped charging for parking so locals will go back into the casinos.

    Been very nice to relax the past couple of months. Time to get back soon.

    Want to do that again tomorrow?

    Thinking of heading down your way to go to Rottweiler, 3 Bro's, and maybe another stop or two.

    Almost a hundred percent I'm rolling down.

    Which bike to take...

    The guy working on my bike, bit of a let down.

    Couldn't do the evap/SAS removal.

    Liability nowadays.

    Just put the Twin Air air filter in which was a bit of a squeeze. May switch to the actual Husqvarna dual foam filter version.

    Tires are smooth and quiet so far. Only did the few miles back home but got up to 60 mph and vibration is minimal. I'll take it out again tonight and do some scrubbing in.

    They are stiff! Bounce a quarter off of them.

    Handguards are good quality. Not my first set but they block the neutral and oil lights. I don't like that and not sure of a solution but I don't want to get crazy changing a bunch of stuff so I'll most likely leave them as is.

    Pics to follow.

    I missed sunset. Did get the bike out though to feel any changes the tires and handguards made. Was hoping the added weight of the handguards would aid in reducing vibration. I think it is a little smoother.

    Going to have someone balance the wheels again with the nice brass spoke weights I got instead of the glue on strip weights on the rim. Those things are not my idea of safe on a bike like this. Off road I could see them flinging off and possibly doing damage.

    The brass weights will look a lot better, but don't sweat the stick ons until you get them swapped - I've done 4 seasons of some pretty gnarly riding and haven't lost any.

    The comments about the lack of unbiased moto-journalism made me think of this guy - old school honesty in a modern format:
