Last year I picked up a nice used Givi trunk for the Conc. Installation was trivial.
Last year Murphs tip over bars got installed on my Conc. Contrary to popular belief, they only handles tip-overs.
The guys who installed it said it was relatively easy.
BTW: No that is not my bike cover in the grass, it is someone else’s.
Last year I bought a greenlight trigger from Green Light Products. Installation was easy; I left it clamped overnight. Does it work? Yes, definitely. The only problem is at history has shown me, I don’t seen to actually use many intersections that utilize this approach for changing lights :).
Doug helped me change the oil this Spring:
- Change motor oil & filter
- 3L Shell Rotella T 15W40 JASO MA API SH
- Fram CH6012
- Odometer: 9987 miles

On my quest to rid my ride of rust I found the contaminants on the backrest mounts to be unacceptable. Take a look:
Sure it is not bad, but then again, it isn’t good, either.
I did replace all of the rusty bolts, however, the powdercoating seems to be eaten away and what is left remaining is a layer of rust.
Current investigating technical remediation for this that involve sandblasting and powdercoating.
It is hard to miss the rusty caps on these risers:
Due to scheduling difficulties (project deadlines, semester endings, family homecomings), I put off hooking up my battery to a trickle charger (which I’d yet to purchase). After letting her sit around in the teens and single-digits (in a garage) for the last month or so I was pleasantly surprised to find that my buddy had a charger to loan me, space to leave it in his basement, and finally that the battery only needed about 2m of charging for the charger to give it the thumbs up. Awesome!
