Rode it to work as I usually do, TGIF.
These arm warmers work great in places like here where summer mornings are cold but not cold enough for a coat, and days are hot.

yea I forgot to mention they have great UV protection, they do keep cold air off your arms in the morning but protection from the sun is what they are really for.

Yesterday, I spent 13 hours on it. Did a Cannonball Ride, 500 miles (839 kms). Long day, but lots of fun and a great ride.

well considering in about two weeks it will snow up there I can see why you ride so hard now.

Garage
Finished install/tweaking Rostra 250-1223 cruise control. Followed the directions on the how to board. Besides me getting sidetracked and messing up the wiring it went very well. 2 main things I did different from the write up. 1. Less slack than what is called for in the directions. Works much smoother and get close to full throttle out of it if needed. 2. FI light came on so I added an amplifier for the VSS signal. Made it from some directions I found online. So I dont have any issues with the FI light coming on. Tested and it's amazing. One of the best mods I have done so far.
