    Cost for both wheels, $150.00, cost of shipping $30.00, cost of waiting for the right deal...Priceless!

    That shipping is way cheaper than I thought it would be.

    Just bought an Arai Gamma Yellow to somewhat match my bike.

    Have to say I been contemplating the suspension work on mine also. I just been realizing the buck action on the rear whenever I hit an uneven expansion joint on the overpass. I figured I could just fiddle with the rebound to slow it down a little. I'm kinda lightweight 160 lbs.

    I didn't get the early normal start today so I tried something different to stay cool. Took a water soaked UnderArmor shirt and folded it into a 1 gallon ziplock bag. I did not wring it out. Then put that along with my freeze packs, one froze bottle of water, and one refridgerated water, two hand towels, and wrapped everything into my soft tailbag. Once the temp hit 100* which was after 2 1/2 hours riding, I switched shirts. Ohhh boy did that give me an immediate freeze and cool down it was absolutely amazing. Only regret was not packing 2 soaked shirts. Btw, the freeze packs I put into my front jacket pockets and it really does help also.

    I lived in Spanaway and worked on contracts at Madigan Army Medical Center. Didn't have my bike out west, but did ride a bicycle out toward Mt. Rainier couple times a week. Beautiful country.

    Took her to the Gym =)

    Getting ready to do a Track Day @ Estoril Circuit this weekend, removed Givi rack, rear foot pegs etc.


    I felt the need to buy new front foot pegs while ridding with racing boots, thus I have ordered Oberon set on attached pics, and have nothing but good things to say


    super easy to assemble and perfect fit =) =)

    Super cleaned and detailed the hell out of my 1200. Full-on used brushes and 5 different cleaners, hand dry and blow dry, clay bar, polish, wax, and 303 Aerospace Protectant on all plastic and rubber surfaces. This is the cleanest and nicest looking my bike has been since I bought it, and boy did she get a lot of looks tonight as I was out for a ride!

    Also did an oil change and made a switch from Pro Honda HP4S synthetic to Motul 300V Double Ester. Not a cheap oil change, but the difference is astounding. It shifts, revs, clutches, and even idles much smoother.

    Yesterday I cleaned - WD40 chain cleaner, lubed - SDOC 100 white chain lube, then adjusted the chain, also changed the clutch fluid as was looking dark. The clutch was working fine.. Really easy 15min job, just placed a couple of rags over the left panel so if I spilt any fluid it wouldn't land on paintwork. Used tissue to remove 95% in the reservoir, then added fresh clutch fluid & sucked the lot out the bleed nipple.
