Installed a pair of Fiamm horns. Pretty easy install. One horn goes where the original was and the other into a hole drilled in the top left hand radiator mount. The relay goes on the bracket just above the front brake pipe splitter. Little bit of easy wiring and the job's a good 'un. That should wake up the dozy sods chattering on their bloody cellphones instead of driving.

Received my Speedbleeders and BMC Kit today but I will wait until I receive the SS lines, relays and heated grips to do the install.

Tested speedo with GPS. With new 16t sprocket, it is now over-reading by 10%

I recently went to two local dealers to price some stuff, and neither of them had ever heard of a speedo-healer! Looks like internet gets another sale then.

Cleaned the chain with Bean Clean. Looks so brand new now. What an awesome product it is! Lubed it with Dupont Teflon Multi-purpose chain lube.

Let's hope Murphy takes the weekend off....

Looked at it, that's it. It's sitting in the garage and that's just abuse and wrong.

But that's how it happens when it won't freak'n stop dropping buckets every other hour for the entire week.

Washed her during lunch in preparation for tomorrow, when she'll go down to the local HD dealer to take a look at their Dealer Demo Truck. All their new bikes on display, test rides on everything, and no, no intention of trading her in. I'll show up in full gear ready to go. "Hey, think that will wheelie?"

intalled 12v and made a sick radar detector holder out of a u-bolt, couple of coupling nuts, and a eletrical box faceplate.

It's sweet...6 bucks...and no worries i used thick beads of silicone so the u-bolt wouldn't scratch the bars and the plate the detector.

Bought new saddle bags from boardmember aways.

Saddle up, we're burning daylight!

Then if the wind calms down and the skies clear up, I'm riding it from work out to teach an MSF class. That includes a dirt road. I'll play Il Buono, Il Cattivo, Il Brutto as I ride.
