You're always welcome to come along, Rob.  You could color off a lot of states that way.  :beers:

Hey guys,

A couple of you were asking about the turn signals I have on my bike. Here they are...I think I actually found them at a local dealer for cheaper. But they are still much cheaper than suzuki OEM replacements!

http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/1/4/70/7303/ITEM/Bikemaster-Universal-Flush-Mount-Marker-Light-Kit.aspx

I didn't have to modify anything on the bike (other than splicing the wires to the new signal). If memory serves, these signals have a metal backplate that I drilled a hole in to install. I'm pretty mechanically declined, so if I can do it, anybody can!  :duh:

Next project I have to tackle is my piss-poor headlights. They must be filled with black dust, and the blocker for the low beam has slipped, making the low beam completely useless. That will probably be a winter project so I can re-order whatever I break in the process.   :yikes:

And yeah Mike, where is that video???   :burnout: :banana2:

and a good picture of andrewsw's B4 as we stopped on the Lolo for a break, and for some a roll in the river rocks.


A great time was had by all. Let's do it again, soon.

This is posted in another thread, but thought I would follow up here to make sure more of you "hosers" would see it...

Chantal and I are headed to Winthrop on July 16-17-18 if anybody would like to join the fun. We could have some great fun on Hwy 20!
