    I use this stuff cut to size at the moment for my tailpack and where straps may rub paintwork.

    Bought another set of Raximo adjustable levers for my Street Triple a few weeks ago having felt the huge difference they made on the Honda. I had them fitted today and they feel (and look!) great on the Street Triple too. If I ever get another bike I think this will be one of the first changes I make - bike manufacturers don't seem to cater for the very small of hand :laughing:.

    I'm not surprised you bought a second set for your Triumph, @Mrs Visor. I did the same thing for my Fat Boy after installing and loving them on my Street Glide. I think levers are often something that are overlooked and "they are what they are" which is amazing because we use them continually!

    This is not my latest purchase but it is "all in the family". Yesterday morning Steve traded his 2017 Street Glide for this 2021 Road Glide Special. It only has 2500 miles on it and he got a good deal on it and a more than fair trade. It was owned by a cop in the Tucson area who added some nice touches and clearly cared for it very well. Our sales buddy at Tucson Harley said that the guy's wife had a baby and it was "bye-bye bike". :( His loss, our garages gain. :D

    @Sandi T that's a lovely low mileage bike that Steve got - wishing him many miles of happiness on it!

    A pair of Halvarssons summer gloves for me and had a TTP jet kit fitted to the Scrambler. Both proving to be well worth the money!

    Wishing you the best with your new-to-you Thruxton, @PH1969. And just remember, if it makes you feel any better, we've all stupidly sold at least one bike.

    I know its not for my bike, but I couldn't resist linking my recent tyre purchase for my Street Cup with my interest in model railways when I found these wagons on eBay:).

    Sanity saved.

    I love the lace wheels on the Speedy, but checking air pressure and adding air is a real pain trying to get the compressor fitting on the valves with the spokes always getting in the way. I'd usually end up losing more air due to the compressor fitting not seating correctly. This little extension makes it SO much easier. I considered the "L" shaped extensions you leave in the valve, but I figured that they were just one more connection to cause a leak. This has saved my sanity.

    I'd buy one in an instant if it would save my sanity. Alas I think it's too late!!

    I find the little compressors you get in your car now (rather than a spare) have a suitably flexible hose that gets round this problem.

    I do carry a 90 degree screw on elbow in my bike jacket for such eventualities :cool:

    I bought this battery operated tire gauge and inflator prior to our Sturgis trip after seeing how slick our buddy, Russ's, was during our June MC trip. And I used it several times on our Sturgis trip.

    I LOVE this thing! I have an extender like the one @Fork Lock bought, too. But after using this little gem (the brand in Fanatic and I bought it for $$69 on Amazon), I may never use our big air compressor and regular tire gauge again. You can set the Mode to bicycle, motorcycle, car, and even inflatable balls (no, not dolls...). And then you can set what you want the correct tire pressure to be and when it hits that number it shuts off the air flow automatically. I'm in love! Well, as much as one can be "in love" with a gadget. :heart: The Fanttik didn't come with a case but this one was recommended by buyers and cost $13. Oh, and I did calibrate it against our usual gauge as well as my tire pressure monitoring system on my Street Glide Special and they all match up nicely.
