    Thanks

    Couple weeks ago I had Germanophone tourist watching the bike intensely for a while and when I bit concerned approached he ask if that's a new bike.
    I was ticked that he had to ask even after his jaw dropped that it is 8 years new. Clearly not enough effort on my part...




    Hopefully after last two weekends work I will not get crap from Germans, at least for a while

    Benefit of the center stand I didn't think before



    Bike fits vertically amid wee bikes in tight spots where parking space is a premium.

    Made mistake of touching the exhaust to fiddle with rear wheel and had to redo the Mickey Mouse mount.
    Acrapovicz call for solid bushings to replace factory mount but whoever installed it went third way.

    Fabricated inner bushing from belt tensioner and evap hose, plus some hardware from the bin.
    Good for now, will buy stainless torx bolt and washers tho...
    Received SS washers today from Red China. Package Took forever to arrive. SS bolt got here in half the time. Just the righ size job to to do Saturday morning before neighbors wake up.
