COG modifications as part of my winter wrenching
« on: January 26, 2012, 08:58:13 pm »
As part of my winter maintenance, I installed the block-off plates I won at the 2011 VT National Rally (generously supplied by Chris Lillie ... thanks, again, Chris) ...

... and my wife was good enough to abuse her sewing machine to attach this patch (repurposed from a key fob purchased from the COG merchandise table at the National Rally as well ...

That's really cool how the plates are inscribed like that!  The patch looks great too. Nice upgrades!

They look good Wayne. Too bad you really won't see those nice block off plates Chris and Charlie made for the 2011 national rally door prizes.  :bravo_2:     But we'll know that they're under that fairing and tank.  Well you'll see them from time to time.


 I also really like the key fob added to the tank bra. It really looks good (IMO). Very cool.  :)

That looks really nice.  Now an intricate set of mirrors need to be mounted so everyone can see!   :cheer:

How about a video cam with an HUD on the windshield?  :)

    I got me real deal from Tony on the stick coils. Full set of Stick Coils--- 2 Caronas which I drank while I watched Tony install them.  Same price!!  Then a 50 mile trip back home just to try'em out. Nice.

  Yup,Tony's quite a guy.

   Also his Heavy Duty shift kit cured the missed shift problem I was having. Haven't missed 2nd gear in 6,000 miles.
