tax season plans are new Progressive rear shocks, new windscreen, some more lights, new helmets, and a cargo trailer.
Music is probably the only real magic I have encountered in my life. There's not some trick involved with it. It's pure and it's real. It moves, it heals, it communicates and does all these incredible things.

I am making something like that too, for shorter trips with the wife. Instead of a "tray" mine will use a Vetter trunk, with tail, brake and side marker lights.

Belt, brakes, oil, clean out, align the side bag lid, and then save up for replacement rear red plastic light covers (I have a couple that are cracked)....and last new badges all the way around.
