Stuff that broke
Here's a couple of garden pictues- it looks a lot smaller in the picture than it really is. The pumpkin is compared to my size 11 foot.
I recently replaced my old and very busted aux lights with some Hella FF100s. They look awesome and function even better- especially when my electrical curse goes on vacation. I also added some CSC decals and a Throw Rag sticker. Throw Rag is a punk band out of LA. It seems like they tour a lot so go see them! The straps off the tank belong to a Wolfman tank bag. I'm not saying that a bag and some stickers make it a new bike but it sure feels more comfortable now. Notice also the parts that have broken or fallen off- maybe that's it. Who needs turn signals anyway?
I used the top speedo light for a donor. I think blue was +.
Hookin' and loopin' to the side of the snozzle.
Tools I used:
Orange electrical tape
Football TORX wrench
BMW swiss army knife
Multimeter -very optional.
I know I had one rear peg down and one up- I was measuring for a bicycle rack- that's going to take some thought...

Most of the ice is from my breath on the inside of the visor. You can tell where I scraped the ice off of the outside with my finger squeegee. I was a block from home when the inside got really bad, otherwise, I would have stopped to scrape the inside which means taking off the helmet and is best performed at a coffee joint.
I haven't been able to wash the bike lately. Yesterday we had temps around 60F but I spent the day sleeping, running errands, and scoring spaghetti with friends. You can also see my truck, commonly referred to as "The Doorstop". I had to move it onto the driveway because the city was going to tow it. Note to self: Sell truck.
Fork boots are great, even when they don't fit quite right on one side. These are MSR boots that I got from BMW/Ducati of Ft Collins. Without them, I'd be blowing my seals again for sure. In weather like this, ice builds up on everything, as you can see, and the fork seals constantly break off the sheets of ice which leads to premature failure of your fork seals and two puddles of oil on your garage floor.
