New windshield... http://photo.ricecop.com/pics/vtxwindshield.jpg taller, wider, higher-quality/thicker material... and this doesn't have a bunch of cheap storage pouches superglued to it and no mass of horrible scratches on the outer edges... :D

Those Tsukayu bags... I ordered them, and they should be here Friday.

#22, The bike's engine is raucous enough that I don't feel the need for aftermarket pipes... with an engine like that, the OEM pipes sound excellent enough.

Besides, I'd rather not be lynched by all the retirees in my neighborhood.

#25, They were also falling apart... couldn't hold shit... couldn't be locked, and smelled kinda funky.

Electrical gremlins are starting to rear their ugly head... and I've come to a realization: It may be a Honda, but it's getting on TEN years old now. Motorcycles, no matter the brand, aren't built with the same long-lasting durability as cars.

As I am a total mechanical idiot, I'm not sure I want to deal with any problems that are sure to pop up around the corner... I'm... I'm making decent money now, so maybe I'll look at getting a *new* bike... the Indian Scout Sixty looks extremely appealing for its price... and, with my back problems, maybe having a smaller bike to wrangle would be a good thing. I mean, seriously, this VTX is probably one of the biggest/heaviest production V-twin motorcycles ever... maybe it's putting more stress on me than I realize...

#30, In addition to the Scout Sixty, I may consider a Vulcan S (94092), or, god help me, a Rebel 500 (95823) ... my only concern with them would be their capabilities for freeway speeds with my fatass on them. (That's the main reason I ditched the Vulcan 900... it had a lazy, barely 50hp engine and wasn't geared properly from the factory)...

The Scout Sixty has EXCELLENT power, and the Vulcan S/Rebel 500, even though they're small displacement, they're lighter, and their sportbike-derived engines make good power for their size.

#31, I have no constructive advice to offer, the only bikes I see up close are the repoed ones Twtich brings in, and that's 99.9% Harleys in various states of being abused.

#32, All I know is that a brand-new Harley would be about as reliable as this decade-old Honda... if I was lucky.

#34, The two-tone silver/black Scout Sixty ABS looks damned appealing...

...depending how I'm feeling, I may take a test ride tomorrow.

Well, that was a weekend from hell... suffice to say, a number of things happened, and, for the time being, trading in for another motorcycle is out of the question.

#37, I'm fine... let's just say I've got to rethink my "secure" places for putting my personal possessions and paperwork, so I don't have to worry about someone "just trying to be helpful" in clearing out "clutter"... tore the entire house apart trying to find a handful of VERY important things that I've had to conclude are now gone forever.

#38, Ugh, that sucks. Sorry to hear.

I'm reminded of when my grandma was moving and my legally blind aunt handled most of the going through of old papers. We're talking several decades of papers. I volunteered to handle the shredding myself as a last line of defense. Managed to save some things that were important to my dad and me, like the original new-car bill of sale and handwritten salesman's letter from my grandpa's '46 Plymouth.

I've made the decision to invest money in it... try to sort out the electrical gremlins, some other mechanical maintenance tidbits, and pay to have a vast majority of the chromed components either painted black or powder-coated... should guard against further corrosion damage. Work will start next weekend.
