For those of us unfortunate enough to live where winter intrudes; What projects(s) for/to the Strom do you have planned?

I'm building a raditor guard and may try doing the black paint on the exhaust heat sheild. Maybe powder coat the back rack since I have scratched it up with bungie cords.

I strongly recommend downloading and printing the user's manual of Map source provided in pdf.
Learn it, Know it, Live it.

You ain't bragging if you can do it

Extra hours from work, helping convert this stie, etc.

Sadly, I don't do much during the winter in terms of the bike.

However, if I get my handguards and heated grips, that will change. At least until the first snow/ice storm.
