  1. I ziptied the two cables together and pulled them through. Wiggling and cussing were not required. Easy.
  2. Mine are only rated at 300 lumens and appear less bright than my headlight. I consider them DRL's. I have no problem running them at night. If they were as bright as my high beam headlight, then I'd install a switch or link them to the high beam wiring.
  3. Good one! I was about ready to ride to the bookbindery in Columbus, which I hear is still operating. What's the next challenge?
  4. Thanks for the coaching! Much appreciated. 👍
  5. That is how I do everything in the garage. 😀
  6. I barely made it home today. By the end my clutch would not fully disengage, even though I had adjusted the cable several times. I had to stop and start clutchless at two Stop signs. I have the new part ready to go. Haines manual says to disassemble the whole damn bike to remove the clutch cable. I must say I'm skeptical of that. I will look at it later.
  7. Not on my FJ yet, but I tried a Shinko 003 Stealth on my R1200GS a couple of years ago! Long story short: I suffered a damaged tire and could only find one tire in the region where I was traveling that would fit the rear of the GS. The Stealth worked great. I never noticed that I had anything unusual on the bike. It handled well and lasted 4k miles including over 200 miles of gravel roads and a trip to South Dakota and back. Not bad for a tire marketed for "production racing, drag racing, or serious sport riding" on a fully loaded adventure bike. I want to try a pair of Shinko 016 Verge x2 to see how long they last on the FJ. But I have Dunlops on deck.
  8. Great pavement and little traffic on 16 this weekend. We rode out from an MSTA event in Sparta. It was part of a 260 mile loop in which 16 was not the twistiest road (Burke's Garden Rd. was).
  9. This weekend I'm going to use my gps as an odometer (still not perfect) and see how that differs from the bike's odo.
  10. I ran out at 189 last year and also was tantalizingly close to the next gas station.
  11. Looking for someone to ride with? The MSTA has state chapters and regional events in many of the best riding areas of the US. Our national rally STAR 2019 will be held in Bristol, VA third week of June. Non-members are welcome. At STAR 2019 - "Free seminars on Tuesday evening. Venders will have booths open all evenings, and some in the mornings. Members meeting is Monday evening....please plan to attend.....and most awards will be given out then. Door prizes given out/picked up every day. Main door prizes and raffle prizes given out at the Banquet on Wednesday. They are working on setting up a Saturday evening pub crawl (transportation provided) in the downtown. But really it IS the riding that is the MAIN attraction for most attendees, is it not? And...you don’t have to ride “on your own”. There are always little groups going out that can take on an extra rider. We even have sign-up sheets so that groups can get formed easily. We just don’t do an “everyone line up and follow the leader” HUGE GROUP rides."

  12. My Puig screen moves forward and back, thus the wind pushes it back toward me. The stock adjustment knobs are as tight as I can get them.
  13. Thanks. Next up - photograph your bike in front of a sign for an obsolete business. For example: typewriter repair, blacksmith or book binder.
