I noticed we didn't have one of these, and figured I'd make one. I mod on some car forums, and they are usually pretty interesting topics.

So did you mod, maintain, fix something?

Today
- I changed and bled the rear brakes (now its very very stiff hmmm)
- Relocated the rear signal to the shock mounts using a kit (required pulling the shock tops, rear fender, under-fender, cutting the under fender, and extending the wires)
- Installed the side-mount from Killervrod.... had to cut my plate smaller, but looks good. I didn't install the LED yet.
- Removed the Screaming Chicken exhaust and packed them up, getting TAB's this week

I rode for a few hours before work, finally removed the rusted-ass stripped screws from the sissybar/baseplate and replaced them. Now I'm home and about to hop back on for a jaunt...

Pulled my EXT17 battery and swapped in an EXT20, which involved rerouting some cables and cutting the front lip of the airbox. I wish I'd have done this a year ago.

Removed all of the touring stuff (engine guards, touring pillion, saddlebags, windshield). I like having the stuff on there but the bike looks alot nicer without it all.

I changed the anti-freeze and broke the drain plug while tightening it. :banghead:

Then I thoroughly washed the bike in hopes that the plug would hold pressure anyway. I have an advanced safety rider course to attend tomorrow morning.

I put on a set of TAB slip ons and tuner. If I can get it out of the garage, I'll post more. So far, thanx Todd.

Accepted some trims on the autotune, washed it, changed the oil topped of the radiator juice to the fill line and covered her up.

Leaving for Reno Street Vibrations on Wednesday Night.

I hate being ready too early but I have a San Jose Sharks function to attend Tuesday and I'm playing hockey wednesday night before leaving. Laundry done, bags packed. Running a backpack with supplies for a day then the wives will be up on Friday with the support vehical. (Meaning beer, snacks and fresh clothes.)

Sounds like the format is a bit different this year. Everything is in Sparks, Virginia City, Tahoe and The Reno HD dealership.

Doesn't look like too much will be in downtown reno this year.

Outdoor vendors closing at 7pm this year.
