    The older I get, the harder it is to zip up my jacket! Time to go up a notch.

    I’m the same way, I love getting new gear, whether it’s for me or the bike. Can’t say I’ve seen those levers before but they look cool. You’ll have to take pics of them after you install them and post them up here.

    Did you get all that stuff at CG? Who makes the levers and how did they get away with putting Honda's name on them?

    I have that same tank protector. Love it. Well until the dumbass 5'4" old man at the dealer bringing me my bike could not get his boot over it and scratched it to shit. I watched him try to get his leg over the bike to bring it to me outside the gate. I felt bad that he was older and probably making $9 a hour so did not make much of it and then I found it when I got home. Good buys.

    Seems every time I get new levers put on, I dump the bike. Present levers have been on, albeit a little bent, since the R3 2012. That's when I last dumped it. Been almost 5 years since a dump. I ma afraid to get new levers. But those ones are cool.

    I just got new A-stars gloves & another Jacket!!

    My son was visiting and long story/short he now has my "Old Jacket".

    I go on RevZilla and order the new T-Jaws Air, and the Nucleon chest and Back Protector, then my wife says make it an even $400 so I also got a keychain



    I bought the gloves at Cycle Gear, a couple days after that... I just happened to be passing by[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Sounds like a win-win scenario! Gotta protect your children and teach them the best way to ride, ATGATT.

    Stop what you are doing right now1
    Stop what you are doing right now! Go lay down for a nap. Things are so much easier to accomplish after a nap.

    This seems also suited for the "You know you're old" thread

    Results are in! They fit great and respond just like stock.... Just a bit shorter. Looks kick a$$ though.
    Note; the one pic is what tools I needed.
    Install time - 10 min. 3 of that was getting another shiner and a smoke.
    Only thing that was weird was the levers were machined out to where you didn't have to use the bushings... Not sure how I feel about that.

    In all honesty... These things look amazing. Nothing looks cheap. Looks quality. Def worth the $36.

    As far as the Honda logo on them... The company that makes these are owned by them. *wink*
