Fred - I've got a suggestion for your next modification: NITROUS    You've done so much to make it a transcontinental tourer, and NITROUS will help you outrun police cars and helicopters.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

Oops. Small typo. Meant Gerbing, not Garmin.    I'll see if I can do a total cockpit shot and post it.     The Givi lights are an LED light kit that I designed and manufacture myself. I sold them for a couple years, but pretty much stopped making them last year when I decided it just really wasn't profitable. I was lucky if I broke even, and it took nearly three hours to make one, so I just quit making them.

For some reason, I'm reminded of Spedipus-Rex.    Lots of stuff there.  Classy job of installing it all, but lots of stuff.  http://millerized.com/pegs  I'll be in the garage  COG 6425, CDA 111 a through g

The only thing missing Fred, is a side car for your navigator and you'll be all set.  :eg:

Hi Fred,  I had a GL1800 and loved the horns, loudest stock horn I had come across.  Since they are "stock" horns can they go in without a relay setup?  Thanks,  Norm

Norm,    I added a new relay for the GoldWing horns. I was worried that the wimpy little horn switch contacts weren't going to be up to the task.    They are super loud, and are the loudest horns I have tested, including the Fiamm Freeway Blaster and Steibel Master Blasters I tried a couple years ago. There is an even larger empty cavity in the 2010 bike behind the shroud to fit them into, and this keeps them both out of the way, and out of the weather, while still letting the sound come out.

Just joined today and own a black 2009 14 with 5000 miles this season    Has anyone installed the Muzzy full system with 2 carbon fiber cans that requires the modified center stand     I am planning to buy from Muzzy and they need a code for the 10% discount.    Any comments from anyone who has gone this route would be appreciated
