Rode it to work this morning. 33 degrees meant turning up the heated liner a little bit. Need to put the Pinlock insert back on my face shield.

Just ordered some to fender mount. It was the late night display of FJR lights at SFO that won me over.

Those events can be quite expensive. Pretty sure YFO cost some folks $400-$500 in a new GPS thanks to me. :D

Same here.
Far from over in Upstate SC and even up on the BRP as you can see from this photo taken yesterday. Next week is going to be in the upper 60's to 70's and the foliage has barely started to turn where we are. In fact I like the time coming up in late November early December as the leaves are off the trees and you can really see the road, streams etc. Plus all the leaf peepers are gone and you practically have it all to yourself. A day or 2 left to ride? Hardly, Say it ain't so Wheaton. The best it yet to come.

Yeah, this cold weather front is sucking...but I will be glad when normal and above normal temps make their return.

I was just giving my northern buddies a little nudge. But I have to be careful about that...they get a little thin-skinned about that. Especially after they have been imbibing in their winter sport of drinking.

Since there was a light comparison, we need a thread about what was involved and what impressions were. For science.

I have a number of days off scheduled between now and the end of the year. And I still have 9 days left to schedule. Half of those I’ll still actually be working. But I’ve no room to complain. Tires will die.

A couple of days ago I got the Michelin $60 SUMMER rebate card. It only took 4-5 months. So today I had breakfast on Michelin.

Put the cover on the FJR. See you next spring FJR.

Today I swapped on the Laam seat and the V56 case. Going to the mountains for a couple of days.

Four FJRs pulled into the driveway late at night. Believe me there was no science involved at this point. Display of lights. I took pictures but not time for documentation. Take your best guess.
At least you know there are options.
I drank the koolaide but only ordered Darlas.
