I installed those on my 18 about a week or so ago. Love em! I like the look of them and they are solid. Hopefully we will never have to use them

Ermax Touring windscreen (hoping it wont look too big in person, but dont think their smaller version would make much of an impact on reducing wind on the freeway)

Looking forward to seeing that screen on your bike and your thoughts on it. Specifically on wind reduction and any weird buffeting/helmet noises it may cause. Which colour did you go with?

Does the EP rad guard still have a "EP" stamped in it?  I have seen some with a raised "EP" & I don't like it so I did not buy it.  Thought I saw a post the other day with one that did not have it.

 

This is what I am talking about.

The new EP guards do not have the embossed EP 
i think they changed manufacturers around mid 2016.

I went with the "light black" since in all the pics I saw that appeared to be a smoked screen. If it ends up being lighter than I'd like, I may see if my friend who owns a tint shop could throw some tint film on it.

Nice 3/4 view. Would you perhaps have a profile view and a frontal view as well? Is that the darkest shade they offer?

 

I wouldn't mind just a little something like this to tuck behind on the rare occasion when I'd be getting into triple digits.

Sweet, back on the wish list then.

I'm about to clean the garage out so my dad can park his Harley in the proper spot so I and my brother can get our bikes out to ride them. It'll be 211 days tomorrow before I'm able to ride the bike again and am planning on doing a ride down to Delaware and then also possibly up to the Hawks Nest in Port Jervis, NY.

Well, plans for Monday just got ruined. Pulled the bike out of the garage and checked the air in the tires. Front was about 14 psi low and rear had no pressure at all. Found a small screw in it that I temporarily plugged just so I can ride to/from work (~10 miles/ 16 km) until I get a new set of Michelin Road 5s that I'm about to order from RevZilla and have them installed hopefully next weekend.

After almost 3 years, it's time for a new lid.

I saw on reddit that the akra titanium system was discontinued. The post wasn't specific enough to say if it affected the US, but I don't see the  full titanium system on akra's own site anymore. Revzilla still had some, so I ordered one even though I won't have my bike until March.

Born from racing, this stainless steel exhaust system represents the most advanced and high-performance exhaust to ever come out of Europe.

Well, I have done it now. I went and bought this thing.

WWW.AMAZON.COM

Buy Yoshimura R-77 Race Series Full System 137000J220: Complete Systems - Amazon.com ✓ FREE DELIVERY possible on eligible purchases

 

I know I should have waited but they had an open box like new carbon, for $430 +$35 tax. I also had a little bit of Amazon gift car balance. I paid a little over $440. I had been looking at this pipe for awhile.

 

They were going for around $690, then I noticed the price went up most places to $709. I figured maybe tariffs were having an effect on materials. It looks like the best price they have now is $632.  

 

It should be here Tues. If I go radio silent for more than a week, my wife has probably had enough and I am buried in the backyard.

This is the definition Amazon uses. It is being sold by amazon themselves, so I assume it is a return. If there is a problem Amazon is pretty good about making things right.

Capture1.PNG.de3e4758676cb7a9dcb842cf80cb1ebc.PNG

The circled area is where the like new option appeared.  I had been looking it up by the part number 137000J220

13700AJ220 is the variant with the works finish. Stainless is 137000J520 and the works variant is 13700AJ520.

Bought these since i'm tired of trying to figure out what riding jeans to buy.  Now I can wear anything off the shelf.  Sidenote: my bank placed a fraud hold since it is an overseas purchase and by the time it cleared the website indicated that they were out of stock for my size and that they would ship when back in stock.  Which sucks since I'm not sure how often the stock is replenished on such a new item.

 

Ordered the bowtex pads as well.  I thought about staying with d30, but wanted to try something new.

Not to be a killjoy!! But you could have bought these:

Bohn-Body-Armor-Adventure-Pants-Black-Fr
WWW.BOHNARMOR.COM

Removable, CE Level 1 armor offers 9-point protection (tailbone, hips, thighs, knees and shins) 100% breathable 5.14 oz Lycra fabric Soft, stretchy and comfortable Convenient ankle zippers—easy...

and if your an AMA member you could get 10% off with a coupon they provide. Just saying, half the priced/or more. you maybe able to cancel your other order and order these if its something you'd prefer to do. Alleviate the restocking angst,!! Iv'e heard great things about them from a friend who rides 365 days a year. I don't know, It's just a suggestion. @Zephyr
