  1. It doesn't look like the offset to the steering stem is the same between the top and lower, so probably mismatched.
  2. Nice work, that looks as clean as the VFR. I put 200K on a '79 Capri 5.0, then a few more years on a '86 Mustang LX 5.0. Fun cars.
  3. Great looking bike, looks like new, like mine 20 years ago. I had the same 'stang back in the day too, although not to the state of tune that one looks to be.
  4. Keep riding! Was about 5 C today but I got caught in fog with under 50m visibility coming home. It's a good challenge. 👍
  5. MRA makes some nice quality options, from sport to full on touring.
  6. Very nice, congrats. Definitely may add one to the garage myself in the next few years.
  7. The PC2 will let you adjust timing although I've never adjusted it on mine. It's been working fine for over 15 years. It does use a serial port connection and none of the USB-serial port converters I've tried have worked so you'll need a very old PC/laptop.
  8. Sad to hear about this, my condolences to his family and friends. His voice will be missed here.
  9. What Wald said. A chock would be insurance but if tied down well for a short trip you can skip it. Congrats on the new bike!
  10. I don't think this train is stopping. Between 2030 and 2040 most mfgs say they will be going electric. Could be more marketing than business plans, to be seen. https://www.forbes.com/wheels/news/automaker-ev-plans/ Also read this, which is encouraging. Battery swapping also will play a key role in accelerating e-motorcycle adoption, a technology that Honda and Yamaha have been far more active in developing. On March 1, 2021, the two companies pushed further into this space by announcing a partnership with Piaggio and KTM to develop international standards for battery swapping. Also in March, the Swappable Battery Consortium for Electric Motorcycles — consisting of Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki — reportedly reached an agreement to standardize swappable batteries and replacement systems for e-motorcycles in Japan. The focus for ebikes will be Asia Pacific for years to come, North America will be last to the party.
  11. The real decline in the world is replacing proper education and science with whatever can be found on the internet.
  12. I'll get around to the Tamiya kit one of these days. The NR gets hung every year, along with the CB. But I need that RC51 now!
  13. It's all stock wiring except for the PC2 plug-in you can see in the pics.
  14. It's just the original Givi trunk mount for the 5G. Integrates with their tubular side racks.
