finally got around to making a seat lanyard, ended up that when the seat is hanging it makes a good place to lay your tools while working with battery or making connections. also made these bungee spools for about 10 bucks. Auto part Engine Fuel line Vehicle Wire

Went and grabbed the oil to top off - low oil light came on yesterday. Got my Dart flyscreen installed up yesterday too. Today I'm ordering the headlight riser so I can raise the flyscreen up higher, but holy cow what a difference it already makes, even set low.

The lights are barn finds - simple bucket style I got for $15. Main light is 7.5" and the driving lights are 5". Mounted HID lamps and powder coated them black to match bike. To mount I used standard fork mounts, heated up and bent some 3/4 angle steel, bolted lights to angle, and mounted to mounts. Kinda figured it out while putting it together...

Thanks man. This thing has been a real treat to tinker with. Gonna do new Avons with a 180 on back. Should fill out the ass end a bit more and get it a bit lower…we’ll see.
I gave up on lower because I love to corner. I'm actually higher than stock. The 180 will look great.
I drive this road every week. It has more corners than the map shows.

Damn. I lost this whole season due to stupid back injury. Next year!!
My back is a wreck.
Doc recommended an inversion table. 5 minutes a day. Made a huge difference.
Having a lower back support on the Mustang seat takes all the strain off my lower back.
If you don't have one -- you gotta try it.

Sorry about your back! Don't know what happened, so if my advice is stupid, ignore it.

Wishing you a great 2022!
