I bought this bike with 18k original miles, just a weekender since I have to carry a bunch of tools for work...

So far I've put a little over 2k miles on it, an oil filter relocation, 5" floorboard extensions... it had Cobra longshot pipes on it already and when I read up on the popping / backfiring... many said to bypass the AIS tubes so I looped the hoses. Been running good since, so I think I'm doing the .45acp brass plugs this weekend.

Next is to rebuilt what I was told were recently rebuilt forks. Left side started leaking as soon as I started riding it on a regular basis, so I got a set of All-balls seals so I can try my hand at rebuilding them.

A friend gave me Memphis Shades, Fatz widshield, but NO mounting hardware so now I'm in the hunt for a set of brackets. Also looking at maybe mounting a set of hardbags, nothing spectacular, just enough to keep and jacket or sweatshirt (desert is hot during the day but can get fridged at night)
