Switchback lighting has this effect. .a COG industry member makes the kit. The running lights make you really visible to oncoming traffic. The photo doesn't capture how much brighter the brakes become with the change but it does show the turn indicator lights working as brake lights.  :great:

Looks good Diz! I might have to add to my list of things for down the road. Right now I have my sights set on a Evolution tune from SISF.  :)

Today I've taken my DuckTape on a first rainy ride. BT021 tires do not inspire confidence!
I desperately have to make a decision which tires to get before a nasty spill happens. 
Made it home safe, although I got some water seepage. Time to switch to real rain gear...

Cheers...

Dreaming about riding it, it only has 61 miles on it got it Saturday and it has been raining hard since.
Friday is supposed to be nice so I will hopefully be riding it to work then.

Just found out that I, apparently, ordered the last Concours 14 CeeBailey's windscreen they'll ever make. They've discontinued all motorcycle windscreens. (Mine's an XT model.)

Wow that's strange, I just got a new short version on the Mini-Euro a while back. I have a new ECU flash coming for my C14 this week.

I noticed that the other day, but I didn't know they weren't going to make Concours windshields anymore. I just thought their site was acting up. I guess I'm not getting one of their shields.  :truce:

Sent a message to the dealership in order to get an appointment to have the break in oil dumped and changed and have a good first inspection done, she now has 500 miles on her...

Replaced the rear wheel bearings & seal. At a 189,500 miles it just seemed like a good idea even though they seemed fine.

Replaced my fork seals today. For any of you guys that don’t a headstand, the scissor jack out of a car works perfect. I placed on the header pipe and lifted the front about 1.5”. Perfect height to get the forks out.

Ordered a Cover Anything five layer all weather cover and Kawasaki OEM tank bag.
I have also been researching changing the big a** single exhaust out for a ZX duel system to give the bike a little more symmetry. I wanted to get a full Area P ZX system and make a left side muffler mount but the Area P ZX system is a 4 into 1. Looks like if I want a duel system I will either have to modify the stock ZG head pipe or use a stock ZX head pipe and use Area P ZX slip-on's. Hey Steve!!! What do you think would be easier to tune???
