    That's something I never worry about these days is speeding
    Cruise Control has saved me time and again, especially in 50 zones

    Ah!!!, electronic aids, gotto love em.....

    A few of us used to alternate with each other leading the group on a ride.
    One of the guys used his cruise control, we got jack of that pretty quick.

    Not a big fan of cruise control (on anything) I like to be in control.

    Wish it was all from there but alas!

    Ss cases, stock 4in crank & TP Engineering rockers.

    Need to find 4in barrels next, a hot 100in would be sweet. 

    Not sure I'm sold on the paper thin spigots on SS "Drop in" 100in kit.

    Haven't done a great deal to the bike for a few days now, including riding.  Working on getting the GPS wiring done and trying to figure out the issue with my indicators as well as tighten the rear lighting assembly, all boring stuff really.

    Played around with a new camera, and chipped away at the other bike. Front brake bleeding and installing fuel petcock left...

    Not a lot - gave it a clean and polish, took it for a ride, put it to bed :)

    The Saddlebags are supposed to arrive today, so they will be fitted to the bike with any luck.  

    I also ordered a Front and Rear Set of Wilwood Heavy Duty Rotors and Sintered Pads (Front and Rear) for her - might be able to stop without hitting something now - just kidding :)

    Finally - it looks as though the Indicator Issue is a wiring problem - there is NO power getting to the rear right hand side so am going to have trace the wiring back to see where the issue lays.  Letting my Mech do that as I am also considering putting on a new LED Indicator and Brake Light Set ... just considering it at the moment.

    Check the indicator wire from under seat to up under rear guard,  as possibly crimped or broken.

    Steamer - yeah, that's what I'm thinking as well.

    From, what I have seen. the wiring to the back of the bike has been jerry rigged at some point.  Looks as though the "true wiring" has broken and then been joined, again and again and again.  My first instinct is to rip out all the wiring from the power source back to the rear lights and re do it all.  In short, it's a bloody mess by my standards.

    Do it!  I have rewired chit on the FXR over the years and used Aircraft Grade multicore (had to get it in from Israel) which is just the fucking bee knees to use!

    Or if you a cheap bugger like I can be then multicore Trailer Wire is awesome!
