Did nothing to the bike as such but fitted a bubble visor to my helmet for the retro look. What did you do to your twin today?-imageuploadedbymo-free1357150531.256001.jpgWhat did you do to your twin today?-imageuploadedbymo-free1357150547.255158.jpg

I wasn't planning on adding a tachometer to my 2007 Scrambler, but I picked up an OEM model off of another forum at a price I couldn't refuse. Bolted it up last evening and it works great......

Charged the battery again this morning to make sure I didn't have to bump start it at work again.

Yes you can bump start an EFI bike.

Did a hundred mile ride with new cold weather windscreen.
I put a national cycle ex street shield on.

It worked good but needs to come up and back about another 4'' to envelope my head away from all wind buffeting completely. If they would have turned the top of the shield lip away from the rider it would better deflect the wind I think. Its not bad as is but your not completely buffeted from the wind. I can make it better by flipping the head light yet again raising the light allowing the shield to be raised higher with out the huge gap between light and shield.
