I got another package from the Brown Santa today.

First was a tank protector to keep my paint looking good.



And then the manuals for the bike. Now I have paper & PDF versions of them.



So since I have been blacking out some parts I ordered a gloss black switch cover.









And while I had it apart I installed the aux switch assembly for the Suspension Technologies M.R.P. reverse I am going to be installing.

Most of my posts over the past few days has been in the DriveTrain area about the install of my M.R.P. reverse which went well other than  a few hickups.

But the Brown Santa came again today with some socks and a tank bra. Nothing exciting but the boot socks will be nice and for me instead of 3 pairs of sock it's like getting 6.

I had scratched my tank somehow even with me trying to be as careful as I can getting on and off my bike with my prosthetic or the zipper I have on my jeans.

 

So I installed the new bra.

Good Stuff!  In the picture that scratch looks like it is just in the clear coat.   You should be able to buff it away with some compound or at least make it much less noticeable for when the day comes that you take the bra off!

Where did you get the Carbon Fiber Fork Lock Cover?

I need to get some new rubbing compound as the can I have is like 10 years old.... :-\ :-\   But I will try rubbin it out. No wise cracks now either.

The ignition switch surround I got from Surdyke part# 25700870 if you're talking about the black one and if you mean the chrome one that was the stock cover like fastfreddy said.
I didn't think the chrome cover looked right with the black dash.

So I am trying to get all the little stuff done to the bike before I leave Friday morning heading to Deadwood, SD for SW IX. I got the wiring finished for my Tri-Bar and rear fender extension done today.





Rechecked my belt tension & rear axle alignment. Then installed a cup holder on my handle bars. I'm not a fan of stuff on my bars but I want to stay hydrated on the ride.

Going to take the basket to the store and find the largest bottle I can get that will fit.

Then installed a Guardian Angle Bell holder.





And then for a little BLING had to add some flags to the tour pack.



Next is check all my fluid levels and just give it a quick once over.

So what route are you going?
Can you take some of this smoke from the fires with you. You realize you jinxed it with responce in a thread awhile back. 
The bike is looking good.

Going right past you on I-90, taking the slab all the way there then on the way home I'm riding back roads.

Have to bring my spare socket with me for that JUST IN CASE something bad happened. It would SUCK to be 1,000 miles away from home with only one leg to stand on. So I figured I would have a little fun while I was doing it too. I have a Gadsden flag coming I am going to try and attach to the socket also.

Well I got home from my trip to Deadwood, SD and found a little gift in my rear tire from the trip.
