the morning commute has been a little chilly lately, in the low 40s. i'm not sure how much colder it is at 120mph though, but it's definitely colder.

While this chart doesn't go to 120mph, it does give you the formula to find out for yourself.

I noticed the forum slows down a bit during the cold and wet days.

1. installed a prototype bracket which moves the instruments out a couple cm.
2. installed a flasher relay for the turn signals
3. installed a radiator guard
4. installed some nice renthal clipons (from TJ)

Since I got a little money for xmas, I think I will go and do a little shopping and see if I can't come up with something else I need for my bike.

My lovely gf also got me a new rear tire for xmas, but haven't installed it yet.

If you install any sort of led turn signals, (and don't install resistors or a flasher relay) then your turn signals will flash too quickly. It comes down to the resistance in the leds is too low, so the stock relay thinks there is a dead bulb. The new one just slows the turn signal down so it flashes at a normal speed.

Ya I know where Binbrook is. I'm actually in Burlington now (I need to change that apparently), but still close enough. Sounds good to me... but we may have to wait a little bit, I think it's a little too cold and snowy for me right now!
