Put on an OEM brake lever to replace the aftermarket one I had on my ‘15.
Also bought one of these since I ride solo frequently and have 2 lumbar decompression surgeries behind me and not looking for another. Waiting for a sunny weekend to practice with it at the house before I need it IRL : https://www.motobikejack.com/

Installed my R-Gaza bars today. Added pics to the R-Gaza thread discussion.
I’m happy with them so far. Need some warmer weather so I can stop wrenching and start riding.

Was cool here today. Friday was the first day of snow so no riding :( Took the opportunity to change the brake fluid today. Actually did it properly with the three bleeders from the linked brakes in my model year.

Rode into work today - last good day for a while it looks like. Was a little damp coming in. Wasnt raining or anything, but a little foggy and very humid. The roads were damp but not slick. When I got parked, my jacket and pants were quite damp. I didnt want to put thermals on, so I put rain pants on over my work pants - turned out to be a good idea. It was 47 when I left the house this morning, it'll be 60 or so when I head to "Two-Stroke Tuesday" tonight at the bar after work. Sun's out, a few clouds. Can't wait to get out of work.

I rode to work today, first time in a couple weeks due to having a cold and the weather, forecast said no rain on my way to work or the way home but it would rain in between (sounds good) for once the forecast was correct (broken click is still right twice a day, yuk yuk) left for work 0130 this morning 37f° clear skies and moderate winds, hardly a vehicle on the road and I was hammering down on my NC going 80mph-85mph for most of my 64 mile ride to work, it was a great ride.

The ride home was almost as nice (added traffic took a bit away) but still a very pleasant ride 57f° with the sun shining

I installed a new helmet lock today. -- License plate security lock. I had to cut off the end of the license plate holder where the reflector attaches and the plate is a little off center now but I am quite happy with it. Now I can lock up the helmet if the top box is full or I don't have it attached, plus it attaches with four security screws to keep my plate from walking off.

(Side trip time) Years ago I came out to discover that my plate was gone. I called the police and was told that the police took it because it did not belong on my bike. Some one had switched a stolen plate with mine. Luckily, I had no trouble getting a new one but I attached it with padlocks. I really hated living in apartment complexes. </side>

The new freeway is really working out for me, It saved me at least 3 hours of commute time this week. Strangly my fuel economy seems to have taken a dip. I don't know yet if it's because I am getting on the throttle harder or if it's all about the straight, no-lights 55 mph for 12 miles that I am no longer running. My total commute was about 50 miles each way and it used to be 12 miles rural, 30 miles freeway and the rest city. On the way home that freeway time included around 4 to 8 miles of duck walking the bike. Now, it's about 30 miles freeway and 19 miles city with no duck walking.

It is so difficult to not throttle up off the line with all of the incredibly self-absorbed idiots I have to share the road with. Every light there is several people trying to weave through traffic so that they can be the first to the next red light. I then saunter up behind them as the light changes and watch them do it again. It amazes me how many morons can't figure out that the lights are timed and they (and everyone) would get there faster if they just calmed down.

Sounds like you might be over lubing the chain? Less lube is better.
