    Mounted a set of Pirelli angel GT 2 tires.
    I get 63 MPG, what do you get? Speeding tickets?
    I pack to camp but stay in a hotel because I have no idea what I'm doing...

    Track suit came in today, but it's a little too snug. Gotta exchange for one size bigger. Suit quality is good tho, much better than the Heine Gericke I had back in the day.

    Thinking about getting these, please give a update once you’ve had time to test them out

    Took a look at the front PR4 and it is getting close to the wear bars. Close to 22k km or 13.5 k miles. Will see if I can get another or move to the pr5.

    Hey Potter, have you given any thought to attending the meeting over in Nakusp this weekend..? I was trying to make it but plans have changed and i won't be able to attend this year. I do have my sights set on it for next year though, looks like a good time. :{)

    I've used three sets of the GT 1s and have been really happy with them. Only one set burned out before 10k miles and I did an overloaded, two up, two week tour on them.

    I'm expecting nothing but good things from the GT2.

    Got phtoobucket to accept images again.

    Here are the lights on the bikes, finished the install last night. Can you see us now?






    The Denali DRL white LEDs on the front are ridiculously bright lights, spread a wide beam 180 degrees and are easily visible from the side and the front. I love these. There are a lot of cheaper LEDs out there, I love these and recommend them for those who want to be SEEN by others. DENALI DRL Daytime Running Lights with Universal Offset Mounting Kit | Amber or White | TwistedThrottle.com


    Cheap surface mount 2 function Amber/Red LEDs. I mounted these on the back side of my Hepco & Becker panniers. I wanted something that would not require me to drill holes in the boxes because the boxes are waterproof and didn't want to destroy the waterproof integrity of the boxes. They work. Not sure they will last very long, but at $12/pair I can afford to replace them. In any case they are on and hopefully will last for the duration of our upcoming trip. If they fail I'll look for a better set but they were what I could find and get quickly.

    My wife's Givi V35 side cases came with reflectors. I ordered a set of ADMORE lights and installed them behind the lenses on the V35 cases.

    I also have a Custom Dynamics LED all-in-one license plate frame on mine. After installing it I was not impress. It's not very bright. No plans to add one of these to my wife's bike. I've seen HD's with this as the only rear light source. Can't recommend it. It might be legal. It is not noticeable. Not all LEDs are created equal. This is a well made unit but its just not bright enough to catch much attention.

    Because the cargo boxes are removable I wanted the lights to have a quick connect system so the lights stay on the boxes. Used these. Electrical tape with heat shrink tube over the top to keep the connections dry.

    A little late: on Sunday I rode the NC up to Nashville Indiana. Here is a little video out of Story towards Nashville:


    Yesterday, decided it was too dang hot to do yard work after I got home from work (94'F at 7pm) so I took the NC out for a spin:

    and my road home:
