Took my wife shopping this morning and found her a nice, good fitting helmet to go along with the Aerostich suit that we bought a year ago. Finally... After having the NC for two years, I got her to climb on the back to go for a ride !!! We spent an hour on my favorite back-country roads through Thurston, Lewis, and Grays Harbor counties..... And she LOVED it!!!
I may be getting older, but I refuse to grow up.
The idea is to die young as late as possible.
Finished my maintenance and electrical projects this afternoon
Headlight and auxiliary lights
I also put a couple of led light strips in the frunk and rewired my USB outlets and cigarette outlet into the fuse box I put in

785 miles, did some adventuring, not to much since he has 7500 miles on stock tires and I have 5000 on my stock NC rear tire everyone says is only good for 3k.
The ride, I had to ride to house and home after, that part wasn't tracked
The campsite on state land
Fire(and beer, not pictured)
We were too tired to chop wood so he used his $15k bike as a truck
-Storm Bark Busters
-Givi crash bars
-Motech Rear Rack With Emgo Top Box
Changed oil and filter on my bike. Bike is a 2012 and has 3,000 miles on it. Guy I bought it from said he changed the oil and filter but I don't think he really did. Oil looked nasty and the filter was the factory filter and hard as a biatch to break loose.
Well at least it is done now. I used Mobil 1 10-40 motorcycle synthetic and mobil 1 M110A filter.
Rode to work today, only good part of coming back from vacation!! Had the 8000 service done while I was away too!
”Fill your life with adventures, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.”
I finally washed my NC. Rainstorm.
Since I had an SW motech tank lock set that I didn't use, I thought to myself that I can build something useful out of it for the bike, so I made a Tanklock adapter plate to mount it inside the hole of a Givi Monokey topcase carrier.

It still fits a Monokey case without problems
