    Very nice, but way more than I'd like to spend! I just need one bolt for the fly screen and two for the radiator shroud-thingy... for now. Thanks for looking though!

    I find that Ace Hardware has a good selection of stainless metric bolts. My local Lowes isn't far behind.

    Got an extra A-star jacket I found after moving recently. Have already purchased a replacement after not realizing I had this o_O. This hasn’t been worn, looks brand new, and still has the plastic cover that goes with it. Putting this as a feeler and would rather it go to TW peeps before dealing with Craigslist lol. It accepts armor in the chest and back, but only has the elbow and arm protection currently. Size is L.

    Mostly stock with a few minor mods.
    Got the tail-tidy and shorter signals on today. Looks much better without the goofy extension sticking out the back.20220416_164024.jpg 20220416_164111.jpg

    Nice! :thumbsup:

    A fender eliminator kit is a must-have mod for newer sportbikes.

    Washed the BMW today, hopefully yesterday was the last of the snow... hopefully..

    Anyways, my driveway slopes downhill into my garage, and I had the bike pointed downhill with the front brake velcro-tied on so it didn't start rolling down the hill. (Rekluse clutch so I can't just leave it in gear. Doh.)

    Unbeknownst to me, when I tightened up the tie, I also turned the throttle tube. After I was done washing it I went to turn the bike on to warm it up/get it started drying and it almost instantly zoomed straight to redline and sat on the limiter for a solid couple seconds :anonymous: sorry bike

    Oh, also cleaned and lubed the chain. I ran out of the last stuff I was using and am now giving Dupont Chain-Saver a try. I had heard good things about it so ordered a can a while back. I had thought I was getting the teflon stuff, but when it shipped it was "non nano-ceramic technology" and not the teflon formulation. We'll see how it holds up, it went on much nicer than the last stuff, at least. I think the old stuff was a bel-ray white lithium-ish lube that left a white film over everything. The dupont went on nice and clear and wasn't quite gummy but wasn't runny either, had a nice viscosity. We'll see how much grime it ends up attacting.

    Chain saver is that I use. I use the wax based stuff, and I have always liked it. It stays put and doesn’t attract too much grime. I use their degreaser too.

    I've used the DuPont Chain Wax with good results but have moved on to heavy gear oil. It is a bit messier re: chain splatter but is so much easier to put on (small paint brush), costs less, and works just as well for my needs. I've also found that applying it without cleaning the chain makes no difference in it's effectiveness so... time saver!

    I’m going to really date myself but before the O-ring chains were so common we would boil our chains in Gulf paraffin. It would cast off white paraffin dust for the first 50 miles but worked. I’m sure the products available today are much better.

    Perks to working in a student union with a tech store: they were clearancing out their gopro stock, so I got a big ol hero 6 black bundle for $150. I know it’s several years old, but should be a huge image upgrade from my Session 5 and having a swappable battery was be super nice.

    Nice score! I'm kinda surprised my Hero4 is still working. lol I tested it out on my Rally a few weeks ago and to my surprise it worked pretty well. Just a little noisy with just the skeleton case.
