Well, it was a work day, but... third day with the bike in the garage.
Picked out a few necessities for dear wife to order online:
(Shoei Neotec II, white, modular helmet) looked at my current Shoei modular, it had a 1999 date in it
Picked up a center stand at Ride Now Honda
Picked up and installed Honda's anti-cramp paddle device for the throttle. It is good. Best $6 thing I think you could hang on one of these non-cruise control monsters.
Picked out Barkbusters and Kaoko throttle lock, had dw order...
Half decided on Black Dog Cycle Works lower crash bars and bash plate. They are out enjoying their bikes, so not taking calls at the moment.
Picked out Oil (Mobil1 10w30 High Mileage full synthetic, API SL, no resource saving additives to screw the clutches) had dw order 10 quarts, Wally world
Picked out Honda transmission filters, (2) and Honda Oil filters (4) and had her order (Amazon)
Thinking about panniers, but not quite ready to decide.
Thinking about decent boots, but having a hard time liking any of the off-road boots that are not walkable.
Then... after dark, got a chance to look east of Phoenix on Google Earth; lots of squiggly little trails up into the hills. Took the AT out, and explored a few very mild dirt roads; found that no Torque control in "G" mode, S1 will put a big grin on your face every time you twist the throttle with those stock tires. Lots of sliding around and whooping it up like a teenager... I oughta be ashamed (but I'm not!) [IMG class=inlineimg]/forum/images/AfricaTwinForum/smilies/tango_face_devil.png[/IMG]
I think I'm starting to like the DCT, just a little.
