Installed my console extension to hide the space in front of the seat. Straightened out my fairing, it was twisted to the right about 1/4", didnt notice that till I took a long ride after the install.

Got my 98 bags for it in the mail today, so I will start fitting them tomorrow, and relocating my battery. Oh......got my heatshield filler panel for the front cylinder by the floorboard too.

Local Abate meeting tomorrow.......might snow tonight, so we will see if I'll be riding there in the morning.

A typical day when temperatures are over 30F and no ice on the road. I rode the thing to my temporary work place, the house I am building.

Define riding season.
Added equipment was a stage 1 HD air cleaner, a Cee Baileys windshield and a turn out boot heel guard. I also went with the BAL1 tail light MOD. You can never be too safe with lighting. Now I am riding a Vision with minor mods to give me this.

Bought and installed a set of front axel covers. More purty chrome.....

Also purchased the big fat service manual for my 2009. Love all the details and pics. Should save me time and $ down the road....

And oh yeah, I rode her for about 200 miles for breakfast and lunch in the Texas hill country... Great temps, but heavy winds were a bitch when heading south..

Installed Daymakers into fairing. Waiting for inner fairing to come back from the hydrographic guy. Started to paint the grey engine and tranny black- tedious does not begin to describe the taping out/off of the non removable items and fin edges.

More to come

Looks like one of the last good weather days for a while. I'm headed to my bud's garage to pull the fairing off and hopefully install my new bars. I'm thinin' that could wait though.

Did my 60,000 mile maintenance, Changed all three holes, filter, etc, then took it for a nice spirited ride down the only remotely curvy road in the area. Just changed out my head bearings a few weeks ago. It really made a big difference in the handling.

For those who didn't know the OEM bearings are made in Mexico and are very thin cases (for lack of a better word) I replaced all bearings Head and Wheels with ALL BALLS which is visually a heavier better built bearing.

Bike is running like a top at 60,000.!
