Pulled the carbs, drilled out the plugs, spilled gasoline everywhere, cursed the stupid throttle cable nuts, put it all back together, drink beer.

Rode from NYC to NH. 400 miles the way I went. Temp never reached 40 F. I was chilled to the bone. 4 stops for coffee. Didn't stop shaking until I went to bed.

The bike is going to bed for the season I am afraid.

After a 250km ride through the twisty Adelaide hills roads I swapped over the tail light I got in the mail today.

I have a FEK with the lucas tail light, I fitted a LED Lucas light from Dime City Cycles, it works a treat..much brighter than standard globe unit.

Tuned the bike with the modified TTP tune 12(had weird idle/right off idle spitting issues) for pods, its a different bike all around. TTP REALLY know what they are doing, the tune has a better idle, delivers power smoother, and removes the snatchiness of the stock tune. I honestly can't talk them up enough, but most of you on here already have a TTP tune so you guys know.

Took my first ride after installing NH M-bars and bar end mirrors. Love it! So much better than stock. This gives the bike such a better stance and look. Riding is awesome, though it tends to lead to a bit more hooliganism than before.
Also enjoying the city bag I recently installed, thanks TX1911fan.
