happy 2012 y'all... winter never really happened; and since I posted this in Nov I've logged a tad over 4500 miles at 4538 with 13, 281 on the clock.
I had a few minutes to spare today and reflect on my little sweetheart. I took some photos too (and found some trip photos too).
First; i hit 10K 12.29 (personal milestone)... Took a shot of the main mods that have really enhanced my riding experience.
The 1x1 riser; I know I should give up on the look of the yamaha plate and resort to the safety of proper lock downs - but I'm a bit vain. Sorry. Needless to say - love this addition. I can stand straight up and ride as well hunch down and fly.
The crashbars and fwd pegs are great to stretch out the legs after the miles, and I'm growing quite fond of the footpeg extenders. i found that after 2/300 straight miles my knees were getting tight. I've done a few hundred with these and so far so good.
The trunk; can't say any more. If you commute, even 2.4 miles as I do - get one. Do Not Pass Go. (I can NOT get that photo to flip right; apologies)
Last Thursday I had a factory re-built Penske 8983 installed as well had the fork oil changed and "calibrated to the over all package" (what ever that meant). A trusted man and someone who has the best interest of seeing my safety and ride-ability as he will be with me for many many many miles - needless to say, today was the first "real ride" on it and it is fantastic. Knowing what it feels like now highway, around town, corners, on/off ramps - I'd pay full retail. Straight up. BTW - Hardracing.com is cheaper than the manufacturer....
