Do you have to unzip the tank bag every time you put gas in the tank???

 

 

Ha, I kid! I like that type of tank bag. It comes off quick and easy, not too big, not too small and looks nice enough. Hate to ask but could/would you get a pic of it from the side and level with it? I would like to see how big a gap there is between the bag and the tank and how it looks from that view. Thanks for any help!

You've got it. The fore/aft position is adjustable by a few inches during installation. I did it pretty much in the middle.

I ran out of gas for the first time in almost 10 years. Right on the freeway too.

Got off on a downhill exit, rolled for a while, as I was downhill for about 3 miles.

 

Started pushing, and actually pushed right by a cop in a speed trap, I got a weird look, I said "Hey I'm not speeding", his response "let me check (Looks at radar gun, nods head) "Nope, you are not speeding"

 

Finally parked it, walked a mile to the gas station, filled a Snapple bottle with .44 cents of petrol and sheleped back to the bike.

 

Pro tip, use a Snapple bottle or two for gas transport, way way cheaper than the $20 Jerry cans they sell at gas stations.

 

Comical..... but hey I got a nice morning walk in.

Nothing, but the parts I ordered came in today and I plan on posting about it when I get it all installed, though this may take a while as I'm lazy.

Good advice! And glad the cop had a good sense of humor.

Switched out the old eBay windscreen for another eBay one!

 

I personally like this new Pare-brise style windscreen as I feel it matches the lines from the headlight more. The previous one was too sharp and had that odd gap in the very front.

I've been curious about these. Do you have any pictures from a distance? Side shots or head-on?

Ha! Other than the walk it sounds like you met a cool cop also.  >  "Let me check."

I just took a test ride after installing the new chain and sprockets. I love that new chain feeling. PSA: Replace your chain guide when it's worn because I didn't and had to paint a few spots on the swing arm. Next on the agenda, buy some new rubber.

I picked up my wheels with new Road 5's on them.  

Good for you, anything to report? I got my pirelli Angel ST's mounted and balanced today, 35 miles so nothing to report so far, although they do feel a lot better than the PR3's that were on there for 9,600 miles and (18/14) front (Week/year) and (20/14) rear almost exactly 4 years since date of manufacture. I did notice after I got home the the weights to balance the wheel were not close to the centre of the wheel, they look a little weird in the location they are in.?ui=2&ik=0e71baf69f&view=att&th=162daa39
