Put the Woodcraft case protector I got from morgstang couple weeks ago. I'll still cry like a baby if I drop her, but at least now I know which side to drop her on if it's going to happen.

Thanks Keith!

removed the dark flush-mounts on the Retro, and replaced them with new Protons.

I think these may be Moto-D signals, but I'm not for certain.


and new Protons..


I knew they were going to be bright, but good lord...

The dark ones do look like Motodynamics. I repurposed mine to be rear turn signals.

Their packaging does not signify 1 or 2, but...I ordered them about a week ago. I'd assume v2. I'm used to their products as I've had HighSpeedTech stuff on my other bike, but...I dunno what I was expecting. Heh.

Doubled up on a larger washer on the backside of the fairing, and all was good.

V2 will give you a little magnet to put beside it to change the flashing patterns.

The trip home was much more stable on the highway, in the rain, at 9... mph so maybe I got used to it.

taller Rizoma risers this weekend. Clutch cable is snug. Still just making engine noises myself in the garage, so I still have time to figure out the cable...





edit: after searching thru past years, I'm hoping to find some extra cable length by fidgeting with the routing a bit...
