I keep modifying the odometer. It is constantly changing... in a good way. Haven't put any new farkels on in awhile. I'd like one of those super bright brake light thingy-ma-gig but haven't gotten around to it just yet.

Sunday was a busy day in the garage. I :
Put on my MRA VT shield from Twisted throttle
Installed my Givi crash bars
Installed my Service stand from Murph's
Put on an Ivan's TRE
Installed a 1" lift from Enduro Guardian
Still have to install the skid plate and Highway bars from EG , but I'll get to it soon. I absolutely recommend both the TRE , and if you have the inseam for it ,the Lift. Both really sharpen up the personality of the bike. I know you can lower the front of the bike , but having the room to go up better suited the use for me , as I've already enjoyed a couple off pavement excursions.

On the want list is: Shinko 705's , Ricks fork brace , and some better springs up front.

We also regeared the front sprocket on my buds 650 , going from 15 to 14. Woke the little V up.

Reinstalled the foot rests.

Proper motorcycle training is like wearing a helmet. You can ride for 30 years without one and make a case that you've never needed it. Until you do but then it's too late to make that decision.

I was ragged on at the road house so I got new sprockets and chain from a local vendor and will go , soon I hope, to a friends house and swap them out.
I'm so ashamed. I was belittled into it. NOT.

Got the new sprockets and chain installed today. Boy was the front worn. upped to a 16 in front. seems more relaxed on the freeway. I'm good for a couple more years now!

Installed the enduro gardian Home Page skid plate and radiator guard yesterday. Now if the snow goes away I'll be all set.

I added an EAA sticker. I think my Strom will fly now.
