Wore out the rear RS III. Got close to 7000 out of it. The most to date for me on a rear tire. Spooned it off tonight and RSII going on tomorrow.

I drove Zeetha for about 150 miles and put everybody in the mirror. I was downhill no matter the terrain. Not one mudcheck. It was glorious.

Ordered a new set of RS 3's and some EBC HH rear pads. Got about 6k on the tires, will need em soon, getting a front wobble when I take my hands off the bars. Otherwise smooth.

Just recieved my Akra slip-on and Touring seat I got from a member on the FB page. Awesome condition,  shipping was brutal across the U.S. though. It's too damn hot to work on it today, tomorrow  :-)

Installed a ATLAS Throttle lock.  Been having trouble with my hands getting a little numb after 30 minutes of riding. Nothing to do with the bike, same problem on my other bikes, I think it's just the bones and joints in my hand don't tolerate riding like they used to.  The ATLAS fits great, didn't have to change or modify the grip, it's made from stainless steel so I'm sure it will do it's job for a long time.

i finally found the time to install my engine and  luggage guards from T-Rex Racing along with the front wheel slider. I'm really impressed with their product as well as the packaging. The bars were wrapped in multiple layers of different kinds of heavy duty foam and about a hundred yards of tape. No way they were going to get damaged!
By using 100 mm bolts on the left side luggage guard I was able to use my Project D Centerstand Handy Lift. The fit and finish was perfect.  Only problem was I didn't realize the M8 & M10 bolts used are fine thread so i had to place two orders with Mcmaster-Carr. Changed the oil and filter while waiting for the second bolt shipment. Also installed Peter Lindquists "pod perch"s i bought a couple of months ago. Haven't got the lights yet as i missed the big July 4th sale when they were 20% off so i waiting around for another sale. I'm thinking that's enough for now and I just concentrate  on riding for a while.  :) ;)

I put a new license  plate sticker on.  Then put the cover back on. :(  Maybe I can ride Friday.

Installed my new to me Akrapovic slip-on,  damn it sounds great now! Nice and throaty! Have yet to ride it though. I wonder how much better (if noticable) it will sound after I install a Black widow header?!

I enjoy riding my Connie every day since she's been tuned up and fully serviced.
She is an absolute joy.
I am in love all over again!

It will be a bit louder without the Cat in the header.
We're all waiting to hear how much better it runs with the Header added?

Ride safe, Ted

Y'all are?! I feel special lol
Would I be the only one to pair a Akra pipe with the BW header? I know of a few guys with the full BW system and imho it sounds a little to SSish, very high pitched.

Be safe, Chris

I've never even opened mine as I feel it's too hot in that box to put anything. I did home my side stand pad inside it for soft/sandy ground. Only used the pad one time. What will you be using it for?

Sent my ECU back to Steve for a full system flash. Waiting on the BW header. With hurricane reminents in route I wouldn't be riding anyways.

I don't go into the Glovebox much myself.
But, I hate having to turn on the key when I want to get in the glovebox.
       I hate not being able to open the glovebox while riding.

So, I added a a wire and momentary contact {bypass} switch that allows the glovebox to be opened whenever I want.
Another member figured out how to do it. {Sorry, I don't recall his name right now}.
If you want to add the switch as well {?} I'll try to find his name..

Ride safe, Ted

Pics or it did not happen.

I am planning on tracking the C14 at the next Open Road Course day down the road in September. Should be fun.
