    Default New boots and gloves

    Hell its apparent the weather is becoming more favorable, so i went out and bought me some new boots and Gloves!

    Gloves by RevIt! Striker 2
    Boots by TCX! X square sport

    What are you guys doing to get you in the mood for the riding season?

    I,m also replacing some shortened Progressive 412 shocks with the bikes taller oe shocks (low miles) in addition to shorter GP style adjustable pegs.

    Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

    Yes, still up in the sticks! We need to get some more rides going this year. I've had enough of this rain!

    Hopefully, the Little Dragon and other mountain roads will be nice and clean with little to no debris!

    I got rid of the R1, and my son has the RG down in SoCal, hopefully for a photo shoot.

    That leaves my XS flat tracker that I'm about 60% on. Then I'm picking up a nice R90/6 for a cafe. Its gonna be cool

    thats nice. One thing is happening, the guy who has the bike can't get his replacement pink slip because the tach cable wore off the first letter of the VIN number. CHP found it during the CHP VIN verificaion. So I think I'm kinda hosed on that build. not sure
