Luckily here in Texas, we don't have much of an "off season".
I'm taking a break right now from upgrading the position lights to LEDs (I'll work in the HID headlights in the next couple of months.
Other than that, I've just ordered the Firecreek cover and will move my voltmeter, outlet plug and a couple of switches to that in the next couple of weeks.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood!

Mostly trying to catch up with maintenance this offseason. :D

Added a Sena SM10 recently and modified a Garmin Nuvi to my bike. Haven't had a chance to test it yet but maybe I can try it this weekend. Also was able to pick up trunk and saddlebag spoilers over the summer. Would like to paint and put those on this spring when the weather is warm enough. Have some tinkering ideas with lights but they are just ideas at this point. :D

No offseason here in the desert, lol. Wrestled a new water pump on and added saddlebag lights, might add lower cowl lights or other driving lights later, maybe get the seat re-covered.

I am interesting in how the satellite receiver goes...I have a small Sirius Stilhetto that I have on my car, and move to my boom box and want to put on my bike too. Admin gave me some ideas on the wiring, I just need to do it.
