Todays Ride

Here are a couple of shots from the Olympic Peninsula up here in WA:















I have a few more I'll add onto here. My ride was cut short today when I found out that my headlights were a no go. I'll be troubleshooting on another thread. I have dominators and I'm not getting juice to the bulbs. (Fuse is OK)

OK, your ride wins. Beautiful burger.

I had my first "real" ride on my 919 today. Gorgeous weather here in Norcal.
The 919 is an excellent very-twisty-road bike.



The one straight-away on Mines.

Nice ride.

I felt my arteries narrow just from looking at that burger shot.

Thanks everyone!

Check out the route here:

The ride temps were pleasant around 65* at the ferry dock (A). At top of Hurricane Ridge (B), temps were around 45* with the wind chill. Overall a great ride, I wanted to make it all the way to the coast, but had to turn back early when I found out both headlights weren't working. *-->This on another thread. Crescent Lake was a nice little run with a windy road running alongside (C). Made it to Sol Duc Hot Springs and decided to head back there and leave ample time to get back onto a ferry before sun down.

Sure! Just make sure I get a copy of the finished product.

Oh...and I only got to half the burger before giving up. Looking at it now, I'm not sure if I'd order it again... maybe after riding 8hrs with no food like yesterday, I'd give it another go.

Will do! Can't wait to try out the stand. Might have the pull the front wheel off for a new tire, now that I'm able to do that with extra support on the headers.

I gotta give credit to photoshop cs4 for doing most of the work... it has a GREAT photo merge feature. That being said i was haveing a BITCH of a time getting it to work at all and realized that the bright red time stamps were throwin photoshop for a loop, so a lil fixing of that and walla no time stamp and photoshop could do its job.

I also lightened up the dark areas so you can actually see some of the details in the far off mtns... i think it came out pretty good, and man i wish i was up there seems like an epic ride.

Yea, I noticed the ridge lines on the super-size pic came out more. Almost like you can see trails. I didn't know how you were able to do that 'til you mentioned the lighting.

It's an epic view for sure. The ride up would definitely be better in the summer when the road would be swept from the sand. I was lucky on catching a break in the weather and having a snow storm come in last month. Added an extra pack of snow to the view. The park service usually requires you to carry chains to get up to there this time of the year. But they give me the go-ahead at the station on the bottom of the mtn.

There were also an abundance of deer hanging around road-side. Not sure if that's just this time of the year or if they're there year round. Wouldn't want to go blasting around a corner and startle one to jump out front...

Hey, if you find yourself up this way on the bike. I'd be more than happy to show you the rides. Just make sure it's between June-Sept. Otherwise the weather is a crap-shoot.

I own a pair of Yak-Trax actually, which are basically shoe chains....

And as for Mercer Island... if your family lives on Mercer Way, I don't think they're too fond of the sportbike community (I know I wouldn't if I were on that road). It's a great in-town fix. Particularly from point B to C.

Did you ever get your headlights working properly? If so...how do you like them? How does the light output compare to stock? I ask cuz I definatly like the look, but no mod is worth doing without being functional too...IMO....sooooooo what's the scoop?

I've yet to tear into it and will probably get around to troubleshooting this weekend.

I did check the hi/low switch, the fuse, and swapped around some relays. Everything's in the norm but I'm not getting juice to the plug, so I would suspect either a faulty relay or the cable that runs to the ignition switch (which I found out about on this post).
I'll keep you updated.

As for the lights they are slightly better than stock. But nothing that an HID in a projector housing, can do for a bike.

The light intensity is better than stock, but I believe you can achieve this in a stock housing by getting a higher-wattage bulb. The light spread is not what I was expecting though, at least for the low-beam. It's only slightly better than stock. In Hi, it definitely lights up the road and surrounds by a considerable amount compared to stock. I'm not sure how or why, but it does. Maybe the pattern on the glass?

The main reason why I switched to the dominators was the thought of having two bulbs. If for some reason the high and low on a single bulb blew out at the same time at night, out in the boonies, you'd be SOL. So the extra bulb was like an insurance policy. I guess you can carry an extra bulb for the piece of mind, but i don't see myself carrying an extra bulb. But this could be just my mod-a-holic side trying to reason on doing the swap... Either way, I'm happy with them.

Thanks for the review, sounds like it's a worthwhile modification, both for safety (extra bulb), and for the moderate amount of better light output and spread. For the $150 these can be had for on ebay, sounds to me like a good idea...

Add a couple Sylvania SilverStar Ultra bulbs...

They're cheaper at FlyNCycle, bolt right in, and are pre-wired. You only gotta do two things...add a relay so the ignition wire doesn't overheat and pull the hidden wires inside the stock headlight housing back into engine side a bit or put them inside a housing somewhere up front. Someone used a 1.5"black flextube, looked really clean. I'm just using a cylinder-shape leather bag I found sitting around.

I'm running one amber bulb (2500k) and Sylverstar Ultra. Works well.

I've grown fond of the colors. I miss having a black exhaust, the titanium looks great but I always thought CF or carbon fiber were a nice touch.

Thanks on the pic compliments. I was just using a Sony DSC-P100, those were from a time before clunker point and shoots were the norm (also when cell phones had bad cameras). It was already old and a secondary, hence I took it on the moto.

What is that you've got under your headlights? Storage of some sort?

40k... that's awesome. Keep taking great care if it and here's to 160k more!

Awesome countryside there. Makes New England seem really crappy. Those snow capped mountains are insane.

4th pic from the top? They're just amber bulbs reflecting on the glass. Same bulbs in there today and still working. (one Silverstar H4 and the other an Ebay amber H4, forget the name). I did have to do some work at the starter switch but still works great, knock on wood.

4th year mark is coming up soon, might have to just relive this beautiful ride

Beautiful pics Andrew. I wish I could have made it up that way for a new year's ride. I was so close. There's always next time.
