Something you may not see again.. Sevina's on top, Erica's on bottom...

Apologies for cross linking to my site but I can't figure out how to easily convert Drupal code to this board's format.

That's like mounting the sun on the front of your bike... nice.

Beautiful 13 FJR.

If you have the sun behind you..turn the lights off, or they may not see you...cuz they just think you is the sun.

Nice work! I love homemade brackets, make them all the time for stuff. Does that make me weird?

Sometimes I make brackets to hold my brackets. Brackets support the world, ya know.

That's what happened here! The inner brackets were added after the first attempt failed!

Too funny, my sense of direction and lack of GPS skills will take you places you've never been before! :lol:

Then, the stator will burn out and then where we be?

Somewhat off topic, but which tank bag is that in the last pic? Great documentation on the lights!

I have a question for you guys with aux lighting: I have a 2018A, so no adaptive headlights. In turns, there are times when I cannot see through the turn. It's my one regret for buying an "A" vs an "ES". Anyway, where would lights help me most in this situation: At mirror height or down on the forks by the brakes?

Thanks,
Dan

I'm putting Darlas on my forks over the next two weeks.* That way, when I turn the front wheel, the lights illuminate where the bike is going.


* Also adding heated Laam seats, hardwired iPhone power, and replacing the cigarette lighter with a dual-port USB. All switched.

That's pretty much exactly how I've been thinking of setting mine up when I get it. Nice to see the mostly finished product besides just in my imagination.
WHAT!!!
