Tail light swagger

IMG6056The plan was to repair the leaking petcock and work on the new seat. The reality was I did neither. As soon as I entered the man cave I got an idea. Why don’t I work on the tail section of the bike instead? At least get some measurements and start planning before I get to it with the seat fabrication. Well, I didn’t really get to that stage… Fortsätt läsa Tail light swagger

Man with a mission

11822812_10153100439530922_3720793910308310134_nNobody wants to quit a race the last hundred yards, especially not me. Yesterday I didn’t get much done in the man cave due to some unexpected turn of events (the Nite Ryderz wanted to go for a cup of coffee instead), so today my goal was clear: To finish the Honda. Did I succeed in that mission? Well, both yes and no… Fortsätt läsa Man with a mission

Taking the right turn

10394775_10152966104740922_1407455755062982953_nAs some of you remember, I had the MOT inspection two days after having brought the KTM 690 Enduro home. The night before I struggled with getting all the required lights (turn signals, plate light and so on) and managed to break the rear right turn signal. So I failed the inspection but without any requirement to go back to reinspect the bike after having corrected that problem. Well, I’ve been slacking off on that “correcting the problem”-part but today I finally got around to do it. Fortsätt läsa Taking the right turn

After having replaced my broken rear turn signal on the KTM yesterday (and the other one for a coherent look), I believed that I was the master of voltage, current and resistance. Not true… Fortsätt läsa Current state

Light from the side

11129647_10152840485090922_2637179977051488061_nWhat do you do when you buy things and later realize that you might, just might, have been a little bit off track in your thinking? I am not saying it was like that, I’m just saying that my fork mounted brackets intended for my headlight and turn signals only had one mounting hole each. This has been bothering me for some time, but I figured that I would just drill holes into the brackets when it was time. Today I got another idea when I found a set of turn signals I actually intended to use to repair my KTM.  Fortsätt läsa Light from the side
