CB500X - General Chat / Another milestone reached...
« on: March 11, 2020, 06:01:30 PM »
...on the way home this evening. Never thought I'd rack up this many miles, and (s)miles, when I got back on a bike, less than two years ago. Making up for a 22 year gap, perhaps!

Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring / Even MO' lights!

Switched to Barkbuster Storm handguards for the winter, taking off the VPS until spring. Added Barkbuster running lights, as well.

CB500X - General Chat / I'm in the tabloids again...

Did an interview with MotorCycle News, ended up with a two page spread. (does that mean i'm a centrefold?!?....  :033: )

Modifications, Accessories, and Appearance / Bar risers, done.

Bought @HTCTom 's 25mm risers this morning, bolted them in this afternoon. Very easy, just take the front brake line bracket off the top triple clamp, to allow for the higher bars. Got full lock, nothing else seems stretched. I'll need to find longer allen bolts, rather than the 12mm bolts that came with the risers, so it looks better on the RR Billet Top Clamp (RRP 507), but otherwise, all good.

Ran across this rather gorgeous 'sibling' in town today. @htctom ?

On Two Wheels / Podcast.

These guys heard about my TAT adventure, earlier this year, and asked if I might like to have a chat about it. So, if you want to listen to me drone on for an hour, about bikes, helicopters and the trail, have a listen!

Random Banter / That's me done for the rest of the year.

 Broke my hand. Not bike related, just a stupid home accident. Still, got just][under 20,000 miles (since April) so can't complain.

(and yes, i still have all my fingers!  )

Modifications, Accessories, and Appearance / Bouncy fairing?
« on: November 20, 2018, 10:52:25 AM »
GPS/Smartphone/camera users; Do you find your 'nosecone' to be a little too bouncy to mount devices? Specifically when mounting to accessory bars on the windshield frame?

I find the entire front section flexes, which leads to bounce when out on the road, and off the road. So camera's have a hard time getting good video, and reading maps on a screen is  annoying as the display is blurring.

Has anyone found this, and did you find a solution?

Rally Raid / A brief brush with fame?

RR were nice enough to throw up a little FB post about my trip round the US! So, I'm having an Andy Warhol moment!   :745:
