    Changed my air filter. New parts I already have in hand just waiting to be installed are: wheel bearings front and rear, chain and sprockets. Just need to find the time.

    While waiting for my windshield :

    * sanded filled sanded filled the front fairing and painted.

    * """"" lower fairing gouges and scratches.

    * lifted stickers from swingarm, filled sanded nasty gouges, painted.

    * sanded, filled sanded filled sanded filled sanded painted beetle bags. ( Had removed turn signal alcoves and filled for extra 50 sq in. and a smooth arse.)

    * Cleaned and lubed chain.

    * Installed Dave's Farckles! (After painting) Adjusted levers.

    Stared at it longingly.

    Ordered more parts today. New right and left lower (under cowl) insulation foams today. The location holes in the foam insulation that mount to the frame at the top location bosses have both seen better days (the foam is dry and the backing is cracked)..so new is in the works. Got the rear tail cowl and related hardbag hardware re-installed on Sat. just past. Center chin cowl and both lower cowl sides to go and then it's insurance and a test ride with the new wheels. Have put off the HID install for now.

    DSCN0499.JPGDSCN0513.JPGDSCN0514.JPGPut heated grips on over the winter=best bang for bucks $35 USD and a few hours install. That and heated under jacket adds a month either side of summer. And stuck Lisa on the back yesterday for a 375 mile run up Mt. St. Helens and back. With her on I kept it under 135 MPH. How fast do others go with a passenger??

    I can manage to look at the bike whilst being forced to drive the car until my wrist is strong enough to pass the surgeons next inspection. And despite constant needling and repeated wisecracks from Uglystick, I have not washed nor polished the bird.

    Why bother? You can live the washing and polishing vicariously through him anyway. The whole board probably could, between Ugs and TigreST.

    I mounted new Bridgestones today, BT023s, looking forward to a long road trip south in June.

    Re: What have you done to your bird lately?

    I ride it 100-150 mi/wk -- whenever I wash it it rains!
    Nothing gets the angry Jersey bugs off better than a ride in the rain though, so less washing and more riding!

    Going for a 'lil ride tomorrow - 500mi out and 500 back on sat -- looking forward to it!!!!

    Put a voltmeter on it last week so now the R/R will last forever!

    Re: What have you done to your bird lately?

    Some of the replies here are hilarious!!! Thanks for the laughs!
    Over the past month, I've replaced the OEM levers with a set of black Pazzos (full); installed a set of R&G Frame Sliders (was very sad to cut my plastics), changed the OEM rear pegs with black billet aluminum pegs and hopefully this weekend I will get a chance to install the Scorpio i900 alarm.
    Shewie, can you share any pics of your tach?

    I think I have one posted in another thread. Lemmie see if I can find it.



    How's that? That was taken while the motor was still in backwards, I don't really wring it out like that. If you want one, John at JAWS sells them. You'll have to modify the needle with some colour ( I used nail polish) as it's hard to see on the new background.

    Re: What have you done to your bird lately?

    Thanks! I've been toying with the idea of doing that but not sure how I will feel with the stark white background. Oh yeah, I alwso changed the rear indicators to smoke LEDs and just ordered an integrated tail light with a smoke lense.

    Let me know if you can see the pics from this link: http://2wheelersgroup.wikispaces.com/Member+Mods
