Alright, just got done installing the new RioRand waterproof usb charger/cigarette lighter and my new Kuryakyn Titan ISO pegs with matching shifter peg. Looks pretty good but, I'm going to take it for a spin to try them out.

I had read a lot of good reviews on the RioRand waterproof usb charger. It appears to be completely sealed and waterproof as they claim accept when you pull the covers off to charge your phone or gps, so no charging in the rain. The nice thing about this charger is that it already has a fuse and one off switch built in, so you can turn it off when yhe bike is not running and save your battery. Plus, the fuse will keep it from getting fried in case of a power surge.

Their is one issue I have with it now that I have it installed. The method they use to mount the charger to the mounting hardware seems a bit flimsy, although I haven't seen anyone complaining about it breaking online. Once you secure the mounting bracket to the handlebar the charger simply slides on and clips in to place, no screws or bolts. So I put a zip aroung it and the mounting bracket just in case. We will see how it holds up. If you want to check it out for yourself, I put the link below:

As you can probably see from my pics, my old foot pegs have been through a couple spills a while back and were in need of replacing for a while. I will let you know how well the new pegs work after a good ride. Now all I have left to do is install my ammo can saddlebags.

Ok what a long day yesterday!

New front tire, check!
New front brake pads, check!
All new gaskets/seals in a complete top end overall, check! I noticed the cylinders were leaking some oil.

Now that all that is work is done, I just need to install my new waterproof usb charger and ammo can saddlebags and she will be ready for my trip to Daytona Beach next month.

Today I saw a 2006 vstar 1100.

13k miles. Some stick on chrome, bags are... tolerable for now. Passenger seat rest/trunk is a Chinese universal cheapie.

Starts and runs fine. Has heeltoe, floorboards, and a mechanical throttle lock. Tires are good.

$3800 seems a bit high, though

+Bryan Parks stick on chrome really hurts the value to me unless it is what I want.

It has been sitting there for a couple months. I might throw a low ball offer in and leave it hanging.

not sure if it's a bike I want to get into, though.

I started riding because I wanted to save money on gas.   Now that gas is cheap again, I am still riding and wouldn't want to get places any other way.

Went out with my nephew to test ride a HD Fourty Eight today. Not bad for a 1200cc. Ride looks a little small for a 6'4' kid.

I was trying to find a thread where someone was saying that they are coming to Biketoberfest and AIMexpo in October to Florida and are planning to camp for the event.
What camp ground are you planning to use?

Ok so I had a chance to at least test fit one of the ammo cans today. It's a good thing o did. I found out that the 4 & 1/2 inch bolts I bought are not quite long enough to completely clear the shocks. The ammo can doesn't actually touch the shock but, a 16th of an inch is not enough space to accommodate any vibration that will occur. I am going to need 4 & 3/4 or 5 inch bolts instead.

As you can probably see from the pics, I am using spacers to keep it in place. The nice thing about the ammo cans is they already have a grooved piece of metal welded to each side to keep them rigid. I kind of cheated though. I bought a set of the viking bags hard mount hardware to make absolutely sure they stay almost completely rigid. They fasten on diagonally to work much like support strutts. Even with those, I still spent over $200 less than buying a set of fancy hard saddlebags.

As an update to the kuryakyn Titon ISO pegs, they are very comfortable and dedinitely cut down on the amount of vibration I feel at my feet. They work great!

+Bryan Parks I may put off buying another bike till this one begin's to use oil , so far it's ok and its about $300 away from being paid for, for some reason it's more enjoyable the less I owe 😮

What has been a common practice has now come to law in California.
Result on lane splitting bill AB-51 Vehicles: motorcycles: lane splitting

https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billVotesClient.xhtml?bill_id=201520160AB51

Bill passed with a land slide. When you visit our state. Feel free to split lanes in traffic in our state. Be curious, don't split at high speeds.
