Busy Weekend

Yesterday, my wife's best friend came into town to play with our baby and catch up. You know what that meant? I WAS OFF THE HOOK FROM BABY DUTY AND HAD THE DAY TO MYSELF!!!!

I spent some time in the garage and got my bike projects buttoned up.

I took off my Dan Moto Carbon pipes and replaced them with the stockers that came from the PO. I drilled out the baffles to keep some rumble. I really like the stock look and wanted to change things up. I also semi permanently mounted my tail bag. Also shimmed up the front of the seat so it doesn't move around. Also installed my battery tender pigtails so that I no longer have to take out the battery. Installed new tank pad and new bar end weights. Cleaned and lubed the chain. Finally, adjusted the clutch properly after swapping out to shorty adjustable levers.

It was a fun day!

Also, thanks to MusicJunkie for hooking me up with a gorgeous set of stock pipes to keep so that I can go back to bone stock if I ever choose.

I know how hard it is to get anything done with a baby, glad that you enjoyed it! My goal is no projects this season... We'll see how that goes.

Yeah, good luck on that front. I am getting a new rear tire installed sometime this week, want to change the front LED blinkers to something bigger and brighter, and LED headlight.

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.
