Spiffing Up the Bike

July 19, 2012

I recently splurged a little bit for a few replacement parts for my bike.

I now have a lovely set of new Battleax BT016 tires, which are grippy and fantastically wonderful. Not a splurge but a safety necessity. (Huge thanks to my sweetheart Tony for mounting and balancing the tires so quickly after their arrival. What would I do without you?)

Oooh… new tires!

And, I have now replaced the much-scraped-up right side turn signal and reflector, damaged by a previous owner dropping and, apparently, sliding the bike down the street on its side.

Shiny new parts and touch-up paint

I have a few dings to touch up with the matching paint, and I may be investing in a new right side mid-fairing soon. My bike may not know the difference, but I am definitely happier to shiny things up a bit!

Cheers! LRRL
