  1. Good luck working it out. Decisions wouldn't be so hard if they were easy. Is that a Yogi quote?
  2. Great idea! How I do it. Spare ignition key is in topbox and extra topbox key is in saddlebag. The in use keys are not connected so it's unlikely both will be lost at the same time. I've lost the ignition key twice. Once it was in the saddle bag all night , next time it was on the ground by the bike.
  3. Unless your tip over wedges the bike against your porch supports, then It takes the neighborhood to pick it up. LOL! Don't ask how I know. We old goobers are allowed our secrets. And don't believe anything the neighbor lady says. It is sad when you are old enough to have to ask your 60 year old neighbor to help pick up your bike. She was up for it.
  4. I just hope that all the accessory suppliers never find out about my attempt to dissuade you from buying the Tracer.
  5. After struggling to get the horn mounted I thought this is a tough install. but after getting the plastic off there is room to hang a hammock in there and take a nap. And surprisingly enough it is an easy disassembly even running back and forth to watch the video. I have my loom made up ready to install tomorrow or Monday. It is a little noncool for the next week. Thanks for all the encouragement. Working on a new bike is like sex. The first time is scary.
  6. I hope the Road 5 is not a noisy sob like the old non ct PR's
  7. I understand completely. We have to deal with weird weather to enjoy all those twisty roads.
  8. I suggested something you had already done so I'll just ask a question. I've known several Aussies during my life and y' all's speech pattern sounds a little different to my Texas ears. My question is....does your Tracer sound different too? Asking for a friend. LOL!
  9. As well as a lot of other skills.
  10. Not a great pix, but I tried. The mount started life as a 3/4 wide X 3 in angle bracket that was about the same thickness as the stock horn mount. It was the third bracket to give it's life for my quest. It got new holes and some hacksaw work before being hung above the mounting screw. The horn was then mounted to the bracket. If you do it you will understand my reference to one armed paper hangers. Now to burn off some gasoline to make the tank lighter.
  11. Well, I got the Stebel hung and have a lot more respect for one armed paper hangers. I don't know what possessed me to buy the ratcheting 12mm stubby wrench, but it has officially paid for itself. Wiring tomorrow.
  12. I'm not sure, when I do my giant chicken impression I can see bicep. When the moroon loosened my right mirror I got home looking at my glove.
