I received Larry Toews front &  rear fender extensions in the mail today. All mounted up and ready for the commute tomorrow. I like that the front is so long. Hoping that rear one helps keep the crap off the back end in the Colorado late afternoon rains.

The rear one helps a lot

I rode my one thousandth mile in just under 3 weeks of ownership.
Installed the STS turn signal canceling system. Mounted the PIAA Slimline horns, wiring them up tomorrow.

Are you adding a relay to the horn wiring?
The 2 horns are going to pull more amps..

If interested; I found where you can buy an inexpensive harness you can use to add the relay.

NOTE: My bike is lowered and the 2 Slimline horns were a difficult fit in the stock location.
             Can send photo's of how I did it {if needed}.

Ride safe, Ted

Thanks, Ted.  Yes, they are running thru a relay. I mounted them on the left side right behind the radiator, where some mount the Rostra CC. I'll post a picture tomorrow. I've seen your photos of your installation but I I just didn't  see how I could get my hands up there and do the work.   ::) :truce:
I didn't know the wires to the stock horn are always hot. I tied the relay to one with other side of the relay to ground. So, when I turned on the ignition the d*mned things go on and stay on.   :-\ :-\ :rotflmao:  I'm  doing a "What the....!!"   :-[ :truce:   I spent a half hour looking thru horn threads here before figuring out to run both sides of the relay thru both stock horn wires in series.    :great: :beerchug:  Anyone know why the horn is wired this way instead of one side grounded and the other on a normally off circuit?
