Chicago area was around 70 Sat & Sun with off & on rain. I was able to get in a couple hundred miles. I lost a garage door remote and a glove I had in my jacket pocket errrrrrr!
Next couple weeks looks like 45-50*F highs which is plenty warm for riding to work every day. Hopefully this winter will be mild like last year. I'll be riding as long as there is no ice or salt on the roads.
Took off the fender to install a new Kisan brake light. Had the wrong bulb. It is a wedge not the bayonet bulb. Trying to use the hole above the license plate to push the tab to remove the tail light housing did not work. Plus upon inspection with the fender off if you did push the tab in and are not very careful the plastic tabs on top of brake light housing are very frail could easily be broken. Much easier and safer to take the extra 10 minutes and take the fender off. Installed a base plate and luggage rack while I had it apart. The spacer and longer hex head screw that raised the bolt that the passenger pillion slides on to needs an extra washer under the spacer. Could barely slide the pillion back on and now the passenger strap is damn tight (touring pillion) is a little thicker I guess and the strap was made for the factory pillion. When I get the Hepco and Becker storage box attached to the rack will post a picture. The black luggage rack looks better than the chrome one.
Just getting back from a birthday cruise (mom's 90th- she took the whole extended family to Nassau and back) and I'll be getting a new rear tire and an oil change as soon as the dealer can come by and pick it up! Cord is showing! (They have free pick up and delivery)

This is as amusing as watching chimps in a zoo, only without having to dodge flung poo. (Coonass)
Installed my new "forearm" passenger peg extenders. Now I am not usually a huge fan of the aftermarket world but I have to say these are a great product and my wife is already happier just sitting on the bike in the garage!
