    Default Massive mods today - Gas and Rug are ACES

    So many thanks to Chris and Lance - Both are class acts, who I cannot thank enough for a hard day of mods.

    We accomplished -
    • Complete audio replacement: Including all 4 speakers, head unit (Sony Marine), amp (Biketronics), retro radio kit (allows you to use your handlebar controls). We fired it up for the first time and everything worked as planned - handlebar controls worked, and it sounded KILLER.
    • Tour pack hinges
    • Tour Pack Power port - which Chris, the wizard of all things electrical, wired up so that its always on/available
    • Air Wing Tour Pack Rack - I was very nervous about drilling my tour pack, but I have to say with help it came out *flawless*, perfectly aligned.
    • LED Tour Pack Light - Chris had a great idea to make it so that its is *only* a brake light (not a running light), so that it is much more noticable


    Many thanks to Chris and Lance - very kind souls and I am truly speechless.

    Lance of course was a HUGE help!



    Front fairing off. (huge pain in the D1CK to get it back on)


    Speakers off:


    Speaker rings on an and HK head unit coming out:

    Everything besides putting the outer fairing back on, went flawlessly.

    Ya it never goes back on easy and then when you change all the wirin around you never know what might be in the way. But is all got done. It was fun watching Kosher drill holes in his TP. Plus he brewed up some great coffee.

    Yeah, was definitely skeered of drilling, but it really turned out exactly perfect.

    Then I've been thinking - so if I'm on a trip and I put a big ol bag on the rack, kinda makes the tour pack less convenient for quick access, to phone, smokes, etc.

    I've never had a tour pack, how do yall handle that?

    its not that bad really. once you have the gear strapped down to the rack, you can still get the lid open just can't let her lean on the hinges and the retention cable. have to basically open up just enough to get your hand in and the item out. make sure that anything that needs quick access is near the opening to keep it easy. Or use the saddle bags more often. Gas, has a pretty cool little tray that he added into the roadside bag that keeps things like the cell, tire gauge, little tools, and what-nots organized. I was thinkin about one such tray for myself.
    Just gotta watch that 10# limit on the rack. (Heavy on the sarcasm there)
