    That will be next winter mod. I just wanna ride now and spend my money on a great summer adventure next. Winter is for modding, spring through fall is for riding. Thanks Brother

    Thanks guys.

    FC, i think the angle I took the pic at makes the plate look even bigger than it is...I was looking at the pic again and you're right, it does look HUGE! lol! It's only 4x7 though.
    I'm not sure how big or small other provinces/territories make their plates.

    Looks like a KTM 1290 on the left. Saw one at the dealership when I was getting oil and filter. That would be fast

    We'll figure out a way to fix it for good.

    It can only be one of 2 things. Either the rubber we discussed, or the round one that goes through the triple three.

    Yeah, I sure did. Still want to thank you again for getting them for me. That was unexpected. I sure like the way they look compared to the old boulevard labels. I know I could've left them off once everything was cleaned, but I like the look of the badges. It's never stopped me from getting a bunch of every time I ride it. Or people just staring at it. Not bad for a 13 year old motorcycle. The other day when I was filling the tank, the guy at the station said it was the cleanest bike he'd seen all day, and he said he'd seen a lot of them.

    I did similar things to my BMW - made a bunch of physical and coding changes to make it more like the Euro version.

    Then I find out all the Euro guys are trying to make *their* BMWs more like North American ones. Lol. True story.

    Anyway - props to cbxer. "I get it."

    Installed my Corbin bags on the new bike today

    I considered installed the smoked integrated taillight but didn’t like how it looked against the silver paint




    The scars on them from the crash shouldn’t be too noticeable after all

    Put the Sumo 6 degree tree, fat forks, and Yana Shiki risers on today. Ran out of time to button everything back up. Will finish that tomorrow, gonna put on the front LED turn signals and 23" wheel tomorrow as well. Making forward progress finally. I feel like all Ive been doing is tearing down the bike and ordering parts for a few months. Feels good to start putting things back together.

    Looking great. Good call on the smoke tail light. You need to be seen as well to keep the new beast new

    That's great colour match too. Now you can ride for hours without your tailbone killing you. Great find

    My wife and I ride around a lot together so I installed a rear backrest and luggage rack. Next, I installed a nice set of Suzuki OEM engine guards. I had hoped to install a set of Kuryakyn passenger floorboards as well but they were sassing some hardware that I'm waiting for.

    I ordered the +3 lines and cables today.

    I ran them behind the triple when doing my 2” risers last week, but I wasn’t feeling it at all. It looked funny to me, the brake line seemed really strained even with the t floating, and the throttle and brake line rubbed on my speedo housing and tank at full turn. I know people do this successfully, And I followed the video by big joe....just didn’t work for me.

    Who knows, maybe the 6 degree tree affects it negatively a little 🤷‍♂️

    Well
    I was putting my new mirror extenders on from Meancycles. Taking the right mirror off had a case of butter fingers and it fell and hit my tank taking a chunk out of my paint

    I just had it repainted before last riding season.


    There was lots and lots of choice words in the garage

    I was so pissed. One of those moments just before it happened, the little voice in my head that I ignored. And that just calls Murphy to come and remind you to "listen to the voice in your head"

    $600 down the drain. At least now I only have to have the blue part painted on the one side this time and then clear coat.
