Seems inappropriate to headline the story with a Trayvon banner?  No where in the text does it indicate that he was assaulted by individuals associated with a retaliation crime.  But it sells interest to read more...

I recommend FIAMM nautilus (high Note) You can find them used off cars.  I did not like my WOLO horn at all.
Best Wishes, Craig McClure

Removed the E3 plug my buddy recommended and put the NGK Iridium that has 800 miles on it back in.  Threw the E3 in the trash.  I won't even give it away.  Reasons: Hard starting, dies during warm up, poor idle, flat spot near WOT, sooty like it's rich.  And it is the plug 'cause the NGK is easy to kick start, doesn't die during warm up, solid idle, doesn't have the flat spot, and is a nice grey.

Figured out how to install my new Dunstall replica muffler onto my header pipe without having to weld t due to both the pipes being the same size.

That's why I've always considered the media to be the biggest American terrorist group. They spend all their efforts turning everything into some to way terrorize the hoi polloi.
So, I've chosen not to watch their untrue propaganda since about 1982 when their yellow journalism destroyed the Ultralight Airplane industry with their lies and sensationalism. The media is even lower on the food chain than lawyers. Sharks will eat them!

That would be a story.
It's the fifth column: non elected, representing none, they decide the agenda and course of politics.

Back to the issue: I did nothing but checking gear and planning route for upcoming journey. So in a way I did do something.  ;)

Finally got around to swapping out the stock Bosch plug for the NGK (6637) BPR6EIX Iridium IX. ...didn't expect it to make as much difference as it did! Great improvements in both idle and smoothness across the power bands. Highly recommend!

Today I installed a 7 inch headlight It is definitely an improvement over the stock unit and was easy to install, I only had to drill out the mounting holes a bit so I could adjust it upwards.  It could still be a bit brighter though so I will have to try a halogen one of these days.  I also tried the bar end mirrors, however I will be returning them, as I find there field of vision to be too narrow. 
Thirdly I got a windshield.  It is not one of the Nfield gear ones, but something Marty over at Go Moto came up with.  It uses the Memphis Shades mounting bracket, and some unknown brand of shield that they modified to fit those brackets.  It is a pretty big windscreen and it has great coverage, though for me it would be nice if it was just a bit taller as the blast from it hits the top of my helmet making an awful racket.  As such I will be leaving it off for commuting, but I think it will be excellent for long trips.  All in all it is a great deal at $90.  I will try to get some pictures of the new screen up later.

As I said, you don't know how many problems you have with the Bosch until you replace it!

Yesterday I rode my 2011 G5 to the weekly vintage/custom auto show.  Nothing unusual about that but the odometer is now over 11,000 miles and she's still thumpin' down the road like it did at 1,000 miles if not better. :)

I mention this because before I bought it I was concerned about its ability to run without problems.
  It's proving to be as reliable as any Honda or BMW I've owned. :)
