yes, that's Ms. Dale or as we say on the old Nighthawk thread, SOQS.(She Of Queenly Stature)
Soqs got two rooms of carpet and I got a motorbike. Makes saving up for a new bike much tougher.
Plan to start the break in tomorrow. Supposed to do 310 miles under 37mph and 1200 miles under 45mph. My neighbors are gonna get tired of seeing me ride around the block.
I have the givi racks, adjustable levers, soft bags, loud horn, relay for horn, power distribution box, wiring for mounting the garmin, Renthal CR high bend bars, off road mirrors, front mount bags, cigarette lighter and usb outlets ready to go. Also have some misc. bags laying around and a tool roll I will make up for the Himalayan.
I have surgery Monday with a sedated procedure Friday, so the last day I'll be able to ride for the next two weeks is tomorrow. I'll farkle after that. No adventures planned till spring. Hopefully, this surgery will eliminate the chances of passing out due to a galloping heart. Takes about 3 months for all healing to occur. I'll post farkle photos as they occur.
Very nice! Looks like a sweet motorcycle. I love smaller displacements bikes (the ones like the motopress poo-poos). Take it to the Blue Ridge area and let’s ride gravel! I hope to go down there in a few weeks.
PS, I just noticed that thing has two front fenders. I’ve never seen that before. Looks more effective than the NC’s 3/4 fender.
I hope everything went well. Please, let us know...I took a givi rack from a vstrom and cut and welded to fit the Nighthawk. The cans are Mermite cans, military surplus. They are used to transport hot food. They are aluminum and quite light. Rigging the lid is the hardest part.
This is the first post of about 7 or 8 on the construction

Its 4 A. M. I have to be at the hospital at 5 to be prepped for my heart ablation. I'm not a morning person. The worst part is not being able to have anything to eat or drink. Stomach is growling.
It works fine. Only "disadvantage I have, after I installed new lock, is - additional set of keys. Different keys for starting the engine and for the frunk...Afan, how is your frunk latch now?

Doing fine, Just got home from the hospital. Need to take it real easy for a couple of days and then fairly easy for a couple of weeks. Really won't know if the procedure worked until I find out it doesn't. Suppose to take three months for the healing to be complete.I hope everything went well. Please, let us know...
