    Meh, that was two Saturday's actually, so two 6 packs. lol Couldn't salvage the ignition switch, ended up adapting an old CB750 switch cylinder mated to the VFR ignition body, so I have to carry 2 keys now.

    Rode it Friday, and rode it again today.
    No snow here, ever.
    Have a look:

    Need to clear coat the RWB tank after the fall. Painted the colors, but the cold weather caught me out.

    Have mine stripped down for the winter after a December accident. Fork rebuild & 929 rear shock, new clutch, all new plastic, new instrument tree, new windscreen (anyone have a stock 5th gen windscreen they don't need?), new rear taillight lens.

    I have one but the PO spray painted it black from the underside, so it is no longer clear. Looks good when facing head on, but is definitely not see through anymore. Yours if you want it, just pay postage.

    Cheers

    Not so much today, as it is snowing, but yesterday replaced a scratched up bar end weight and then put 160 miles on her through the mountains of Colorado. Also purchased a Nolan N91 due to my other modular's flip up mechanism breaking.

    Yesterday it varied from 36º pre-ride to about 48º at the start. It got up to 68º at one point during the ride, but the skies were blue and the roads were clear, so that was all that mattered. Then today it was 30º and snowed most of the day. This was my third trip out on her this week, so I am being spoiled in February, not complaining though!

    It truly is amazing scenery and I could not wish for a better place to ride. You should get up here sooner, rather than later before everyone discovers how beautiful it is and how great the roads are!

    I gave mine some exercise yesterday for the first time since mid November. She purred with gratitude. Likely to continue our romance later today. Maybe get right down to some hard core road sex.

    Installed "All Balls" stem bearings, changed fork oil, engine oil and filter and flushed brake and clutch fluid. Got to say the "All Balls" are a major difference best $30 I've spent in a long time.

    Kinda makes me wonder , Why didn't the bike come new with some sort of plug to fill in that sidewasy facing rectum? You have a nice wheel. clearly visible. Appears they wanted it visible or they would not have egineered the single side swingarm. Then they leaave that ugly hole there for the world to see.

    Well did this yesterday, but still relevant. Changed brake pads all round, fitted new ThurnMotor Sport, aluminium chain guard powdercoated in black. Makes a huge difference over stock. Fitted smoked front indicators and smoked rear LED taillight. Nearly there now, all I need is a high mount carbon fiber exhaust and she is all done! Pictures will follow soon :)
