    Grom got a sponge bath, then gave it and the F800GS some very much needed chain-love. Figured out where I'm mounting my lights when they get here, and then spent an hour pondering switch placement. Still haven't quite figured out what I'll do. I don't love the mounting points available to me behind the dash. Don't love putting another set of switches on the handlebars, either, as I rock the hippo hands and there isn't much room nor are they visible. All in all, solid Sunday afternoon.

    Fair enough, I will skip it for now.

    I think I'm going to give the bike about ~1k of running before I tackle the engine/final drive oil and brake/clutch fluids. I'll spend some time getting to know the bike as is, I think.

    I'm not sure how to wire the lights up, BTW. How do you get the wire to pass through to the connector? It looks like all the wiring there is pretty well blocked off.

    Cool! It's even the right color....
    Dang too bad it's a scout though as I really want the floatable/fillable rims.
    Thanks for the post, that is the kind of add I'm looking for, though would really like a Ranger so I can take it on the road if needed.

    Had to do a bit of tinkering and staring at the bike tonight. Lights will be wired up tomorrow.

    I stalled temporarily with installing my lights on the 2013. As I was working on hooking up wiring it crossed my mind that I still want to add an auxiliary fuse block under the pillion seat and run all of my additional wiring to that as opposed to right on the battery. Why am I hooking stuff up to the battery just so I can relocate it later? Dumbass. Ordered my FZ1 fuseblock and power cable for my Zumo XT last night. Realized I'm better off doing it all the way I want the first time instead of getting back into that battery 2 or 3 more times as parts arrive.

    It helps that I learned from the tracking number for my heated gear cable that I won't likely have that until Thursday so I'm just going to let the 2013 sit for a few days with panels removed and do all my electrical stuff at the same time.

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!
    When do you guys think the ‘24s are gonna start rolling out?

    Fun fact about Honda in the US, they don't give us the full suite of colors. Honda usually has 3 colors for the CB500X, but the US only ever gets one for any given year. Usually the black option.

    Not sure if other Japanese brands are the same way, but I that color I wouldn't hold my breath for. They are only making 40 of them, so I would guess the color is a one off.

    That's happened with Yamaha as well. The 2014 FJR1300 for the US market is red but Canada got a really cool looking Root Beer Brown metallic that never came into the states. I've seen pics of Australian models in colors never offer in the US as well.

    I'm seriously considering a wrap if I can't get anything but black/dark charcoal on the next bike. I want to be visible.
