I assume that means you have to take the headers of each time to be repainted, you going to replace to crush washer each time too? Just curious

Took all day yesterday and rode. It was a calming effect that I needed.

Needed to get away from the household that is....

I have an MT 01 which has a decent stock set of turn signals. About 2 weeks ago I walked in to one and snapped it off. I fixed it temporarily but needed to buy a new one which is $122 for one from Yamaha. I wasn't going to pay that much so I put a set of TST Echo led signals which is $49 for a set of 2. I put them on Sunday and they are very nice quality. They are quite tiny but are super bright and look cool as hell.

TST makes very nice stuff and they stand behind it very well.

My comfort seat finally arrived after 3 weeks! First impression, it's not that much more comfortable compared to the stock seat. Please tell me it takes a few rides to break it in?

You'll feel it most on a longer ride. It's still a firm seat, but the pressure points aren't there like the stock seat.

Yeah, it will break in a bit, and also the gains are noticed when you get past the 1.5-2 hour mark. Mine didn't seem that much better at first, then I rode for 4 hours and I had forgotten that I had a complaint about a seat. I'm not a small guy either.

Good to know. I routinely ride back and form from NYC to PA and it takes about 3 hour so I'm looking forward to that. I'm actually heading there tomorrow afternoon so I'll get to put it to the test.

I added a knox mesh armoured jacket to my arsenal today.

Knox Urbane Utility Armoured Mesh Jacket.

Urban Rider (in Great Britian) is fast as crap. Ordered it Monday, got it delivered fedex today.

Ordered new gloves too, but this warm weather jacket is the bees knees.

If the rain stops I'll get to ride someday.

This jacket really looks nice! I'll have to look into Knox's stuff.


Got my wheels off and over for new shoes....didnt realize I still had the stock dunlop on the front! Trying to think of a way to set up an extra light on top, and planning my last second details for the ECR trip. The plan is, get there. View attachment 159606 View attachment 159607
Exciting getting ready for the long journey! Nothing like a new set of tires, it always feels like a brand new bike.

Additionally it does not have the forward drop that pushes you into the gas tank.

Thanks Muc, its top quality material. I'm becoming a knox fanboy. They have a whole line of items and layering systems. Great breathable armour too.

It's the 2020 item as they added all the pockets. Last years knox urbane pro didn't have the 5 additional pockets but same jacket otherwise.
