Video? That's just evidence that can be used against you. I would like to do pictures but
1. I need to get another bike first
2. I never remember to take pictures
3. If I do take the I never put them out there for the world to see
There is a guy I follow on youtube (and Instagram I guess) that documents his life on the bike (Adeysworld) . Makes you want to do just live on 2 wheels and do nothing else. Well he just went down and looks a bit fucked up after an altercation with a Prius. Of course he is documenting it. I just couldn't do that. I'd prefer to suffer in silence. In any event there is a GoFundMe set up for him due to insurance shortfalls: https://www.gofundme.com/wdy2ae3c
As yet another side note, do you guys find gear position or fuel consumption gauges useful on your bike?
The SV doesn't have one, but you can get aftermarket ones from people on SVRider. Not sure it'd be useful at all. The one thing that does seem useful is the aTRE mod. I think I might get that soon to smooth out the throttle response in the lower gears. Everything I've read about it has been positive and there's a switchable version which is great.
Next to do's for this summer will probably include getting a phone/gps mount and hooking up a USB charger for said phone/gps. My hope is to use my car as little as possible this summer. Already bought a user rear rack on ebay and I'll buy a cheap topcase so I can stow some groceries etc. I'll probably need to have the RR mod done as well. Hopefully the fender eliminator at some point in the summer/fall as well...
I didn't realize this earlier but the front end swap with clip ons is going to put my bars super low. Gonna be interesting. Good thing I spent the dough on a top triple that was drilled out for the riser plates. It'll make it much easier to swap to back to the original riser setup on the naked if I decide to go back to it. Not really sure how much I'm going to love the clip ons tbh. I liked being able to throw the bike around with the riser bars, but being lower will definitely help with the wind on a naked at the sacrifice of low speed stability.
I'll get to sell the stock front end this summer which should give me some money back. Thank goodness.
