    Revision moto

    All it needs is a sheepskin seat cover and a clunky throttle lock for the look to be complete.

    Hee hee. I prefer taxi beads But that tall STT seat I just recovered is more comfy than my COUCH! No kidding.

    One of my favorite shots actually, it's a desolate part of the old Route 66 through the California desert and if you look in the background, the moon is rising over the mountains



    Riding into the night, no one in sight for hours, I left that spot over some RxR tracks and was just getting up to speed when the bike quit Just friggin' died without warning. Crap! Damn you Buell!

    Coast to the side, mind racing to what it could be...

    Oh, I swiped the kill switch with my thumb Nevermind. Nothing to see here. On to Laughlin NV

    What mirrors are those? At first I though they were the $20 ebay cheapies, but looking more closelier, they seem diff'rent.

    OK, OK, you're right They do tick mostly all the boxes for me:
    Gotta be cheap (because I am...) and because both mirrors and levers, are disposable.
    Be convex (mandatory)
    Be metal.
    Have to fold completely out of the way for splitting lanes or catching a corner of something.
    These do not have handy detents so it takes an eye check and a little nudge to set them right again, but the china ones with detents tend to flop around at first and then corrode solid anyway.
    And these happen to be a happy medium width between the ones that bolt right on the bar (with that knuckle thing and 10 allens to tighten just right) or the aluminum one that sticks WAY out and doesn't even fold(!!).
    These have lasted quite awhile with no corrosion under the glass and even the anodise is still pretty black! So far.
    Now ya know.
