Last nite, I Installed new mirrors. I did try them inverted—which blew. The topside mount was much better-safer.

Ok, folks this is a good one. Hed an issue with a flickering Daymaker headlight. Nothing else flickered, It was a little jumping when starting. I chased everything and it only happened when the engine was running. Finally figured out it was a ground issue (no surprise, but I checked, I thought), Seems on my bike the kickstand rubs against the shift linkage, which I found out, grounds the engine to the frame. But when vibrating.... A friend figured it out, and added a separate ground engine to frame.

So, is the ground cable from the sump pan to the frame crossbar missing?

Not Now! I'm guessing it has been missing for a while. He couldn't locate one.

New ass helmet-holster... ...I installed a low profile Saddleman seat from Ghost Rider Customs. 1 beer install. The seat bracket was tight & sat a little left until a rubber hammer fine tuning and then some miles.

I like the new seat, especially with my low drag bar set up.

New (to me) 2015 VRSCF

Picked up a stock 2015 VRSCF with 1,200 miles on it and have been tweaking it to my liking.

Added an Akrapovic exhaust, Thrasin' pegs, high flow air filter, Dominion grips, backrest, Sena handlebar remote, and Dynojet Vision.

Replaced kick stand bushing just in a nick of time. The bottom bushing was just breaking through. I made a set of bushings out of Silicon Aluminum Bronze so I won't be bothered by that again. That frickin' spring is hand full and then some. Just for reference my V-Rod has 14,000 miles on the odometer. You don't want to let the kick stand pin wear into the frame.

My wife must be slipping me some amphetamine, aka speed in my morning regimen of pills. Yesterday I serviced the cooling system, replace the crankcase breather hoses, cleaned up the mess and I installed the chrome covers on the rear brake master cylinder. I just received a Hogworkz LED head light yesterday so I installed it today.
