thanks guys! first things first. chop the stock can to 1/3rd height LOL

so what trickle chargers do you guys use? the cold ass weather today made it very very VERY hard to start the bike. figured i might as well plan ahead and wire one up (as with the USB cable mod someone did on here as well).

looking for good price & good enough to not burn the house down

Went riding this morning for an hour before work. Pouring rain but not very cold out. Got a bunch of thumbs up from random ppl. They must be happy to see riders in the winter still.

Thoughts on the muffler: not too much louder in the upper rev range but idle and ~70km/h noise is up a lot. Sounds great and I'm very happy, especially since it was a free mod. But now it's time to start riding with ear plugs

I love it when I see riders out in all conditions, mucho respect for them, especially once the weather has turned. Makes me miss my gung-ho days of "gonna ride rain or shine no matter what" but now I (sheepishly) retreat to the warmth of the heated seats in my car.

So ride on for the rest of us, that confine ourselves to our cages, until we come out of hibernation. We see you guys (and gals) and think

+1 for Bayside. And if you consider shipping and other charges they usually have a very competitive price on lots of stuff. Good luck.

LOL BAYSIDE.

Check out Pete's superbike for tires, super cheap compared to anywhere!

Also for AGV helmets, Bayside doesnt carry shit, unless you're looking for cheap bottom of the line K-3....

+1 for Bayside as well. Have bought a couple of pairs of tires there and ordered lots of parts. Don't go in expecting a showroom but if you know what you want the prices are very good. Recommend them for sure.

picked up a rear stand for the ladies bike. got home and realized it doesn't take spools like a modern bike, but needs what i would describe as an "L" bracket to sit under her rear swingarm.... guess that means i just got a new rear stand!

does anyone know if you can just buy inserts for the rear stand? or shuold i just make my own by welding some angle iron to a bolt
