    couldn't make the ride. went out this morning and found the wing laying up against the convertable. big dent in the left quarter panel and broke the mirror housing on the wing. mr boop came over to help me* get the bike off the car. got a new seat yesterday you know the ones with the built in back rest. well i took the old one off and put the new seat on but the bolts were too long so i took two bolts and a spacer with me to the hardware to get the right legnth bolts and came right back home. i put the grab handle on the left side and bolted it downand wento over to do the right but no handle. looked around and noticed a few things moved. so i guess while i was gone someone went in the yard moved the stuff and took the handle too, so i went on ebay and placed a $10 dollar bid on some but if i loose i'll have to order it from honda monday. am i bummed out yes i am and yes i still have to order mirrors

    a friend came by while i was gone and took the seat handle. he returned it just after i posted this. as far as the bike falling over my best guess is the kickstand extension that the po put on it. the bike sits really streight up almost as sreight as being on the center stand and if the groung isn't level the bike will go over easy with just a light touch. while i had it on the center stand i took the extension off. guess i'll be ordering some chrome morrors over the winter

    Perhaps you should put a wedge between the mount and the frame.* It would change the geometry and make the bike lean over more... like this... I have one under my sidestand.* Hard to see here.

    It had an extension.. wow... yeah you don't want that.* A nice 25-30 degree lean is good.

    I rode Sat morning about 8:30 and it was a bit chilly.* Rode Sunday afternoon to get something to eat and had to get a jump I know its the battery.* Then the rod that holds my crash bars started to come out while I was riding, both bolts on each side are gone.
