Rode them to look at Hiawassee Meeting Hall. One of us had to look at all 4 sides.

Oh Wait, that was yesterday.

That is a good ride - nice way to get to or from Tellico Plains. Good camping at the north end of that road too.

Ignored it. Ordered replacement passenger pegs and rubber, so if or when I replace this bike, I can just pull the floorboards off. The wife gave me strict orders not to let her floorboards go with the bike.

Also ordered replacement bar end weights. I scratched mine up terribly using a metal air chuck to install grip puppies. I was so worried about getting the foam on that I didn’t realize I was destroying the finish on the bar ends. I am a one man wrecking crew.

Ha, shoulda taken the bar ends off, lol.... what's that old saying, knowledge sometimes comes right after you needed it? :D :D

Do you like the Gen3 rubbers? I didn't (too squishy) and retrofitted Gen1/2 rubbers which are firmer... personal preference.

Mechanically inclined, I’m not. :) I’ve never tried the earlier gens, so I don’t know. These are pretty much only going on if the bike is going away.
