There is a post like this on another site I get on all the time, and it works out kinda cool. You get to see, in one spot, folks newest mods, or just if they took a good ride.

OK, today all I did was take a decent ride, and ordered some new stuff for the bike. Solo seat on the way, and a mini fender bib, along with another thing that's hard to explain, but pics will come later.

Next...

Stopped by painter to see if hardbags had been painted yet, of course they were not. Two more weeks.

Oooh! I can play!! I can play!!!

I removed the pillion seat from the Virago and permanently mounted the plate for my extra top-case to the fender, behind the saddle. It allows me to carry a bunch more stuff than a backpack would, plus it gives me something to lean against as I ride (works like a driver's back rest). When I remove the case, the plate then functions as a flat cargo rack, so I can carry boxes or what-not.

I'll post a pic, just as soon as the Grouch gets back with the bike.... 60* on Feb 1.... Of course we're riding!!!

I disconnected the battery tender, backed it out of the cave and took it for a ride today. Not very often I can say that on February 1st here in Massachusetts.

Whooo Hooo!!!!!!

Was great to get out - I have ridden now every month since last March.

Last week installed new Flanders handlebars (2 inches higher, 1 inch more pullback) and replaced a tool pouch that had a torn seam. Just rode the long way to work...about 40 miles. :scoot::wayhappy:

Looking forward to seeing that. Springer seat are pretty cool, but not so much on my bike!

One of these days I'm gonna pick up something to use as a bar hopper, then I might have to get one!

Swapped out stock seat for saddle men profiler seat. Took it around the neighborhood and my buttocks smiled. Looked at my lowering bones and risers, might get to them this weekend. Picked up a new brake lever that I ordered from the dealer. Paid for front/rear brakes and rear fender I got off e to the bay.
Sat on it in the garage and made vroom vroom noises too.

Had the day off today. Just set the black c50 outside and admired it for a few minutes, started it up and went on 15 min ride to nowhere and back to charge the battery, then tucked it in for a few more weeks. 70 degrees in Virginia, rediculous.

Then I got on the other bike, a white Suzuki Burgman 650 and went for a 1 hour ride and did a few errands. Boy was it nice. I just hope the c50 doesn't get too jealous.

Well yesterday I washed it, so today I got it dirty all over again picking up a Craigslist purchase I made. I put about 90 miles on it.

I rode mine after work for about 70 miles. I guess that doesn't count. I have a few more things I want to do. Area P slip on pipe. Radiator guard. Front fender extender. License plate holder that has helmet locks built in. By the time I get that done I'll need new tires.

I ride to work every day. It's only about 7 miles one way though. Yesterday I put on a new Memphis Shades windshield. Handlebar mount variety...calm down!

Today my air horn came in the mail, along with my wheel covers. The horn will be installed Saturday. The wheel covers will be installed on Tuesday along with the new tires!
