    Tan 'Stitch Colorfastness

    It's about time for a new 'Stitch. The old one is going on 10 years old and about 170,000 (s)miles. I'm looking to get a tan color with Yellow ballistics. Way back in 2010 I got one of their shot run Lime-Yellow Darien jackets, and about a month later it was recalled because of severe color...

    My ride to EOM

    Wow, what a trip. I woke up on Saturday morning around 4am to the sound of my wife, Linda, feeding our 5 cats. Took a shower, donned an attachment, then got dressed for my ride. I wear an Aerostitch Roadcrafter 2 piece riding suit whenever I ride the bike. With me its pretty much ATGATT, all...

    How I did a Heat Troller Set-up

    I've been asked in another thread how I did my Heat Troller set-up for heated seat and heated gear on my bike. Rather than PM the information, I decided to share it on the open forum. My idea of a good installation is to have the wire runs as far from the usual maintenance areas as possible. The...

    For Sale... V-Stream windshield for Gen.2

    This seems to be the time for selling windshields. Mine is a 4 week old National Cycle V-Stream windshield. I got it to replace my broken CalSci after an encounter with a low flying bat at FJR nominal speed. Through the years I've heard a lot of positives about the V-Stream so this was my...

    KeyLight for your ignition key

    I found this to be handy ... Many times I am in a dark area when I try to get my key in the ignition switch. After building a custom key blank to fit this KeyLight head, all I need do is squeeze the black button and the keyhole is illuminated with my key aimed properly. It beats stabbing at...

    Jump to page # function not working?

    Its about time to get another tire for the rear on my darksided bike. The last 2 tires have been the Exalto, and since it is no longer in production I am looking for a replacement currently in production. In my research I've been attempting to skip around in the Darkside thread, but to no avail...

    Sheep

    This is probably going to set off a fire storm, but lately I'm being compelled to say it... Anybody getting tired of the locker room humor and seemingly crude comments and insults - all given in out in "tongue in cheek" fun? Some times it gets a bit overwhelming on this little iPhone screen. At...

    Givi rack fitment issue - '06

    Like TriggerT, I am building up my replacement FJR one component at a time. My bike came with a Yamaha trunk which I wish to replace with my intact Givi V46. For some reason it was not on the old bike at the point of impact. My first bike had a plate mount on the Yamaha "rack". I reinforced the...

    New boots for Sasquatch

    I've had plenty time to think back on my get off last July.                            What worked, and more importantly what failed . When I regained my composure, as best I could, lying on my back with multiple compound fractures in my left fore arm, I remember my right boot was missing...

    Welcome to the bleeding edge

    With many thanks to the people buying my Grounding Harness, I went out and bought my iPad (Wi-fi+3G) last saturday morning. I spent the weekend getting to know it. Right up front i'm going to say "This isn't a laptop!" Don't expect it to take the place of one - yet. My goal is to use it for...

    Grounding Harness

    Gentlemen, Ladies As of 1 January 2012 I have decided to get out of the Grounding Harness business. Yamaha has a current recall for this problem that will protect that nasty S4 spider, although the S6 and S7, which have also given us grief, remains unprotected. If your bike is a victim of...

    Prototype Grounding Harness

Lately I've been getting a lot of overtime but not much chance to work on the beast. The following pictures are the start of my Grounding Harness...
