    Can't decide if that poster is a Spam artist @Sandi T
    Very few posts and no real information. I haven't clicked on the link!

    Boots to replace my last pair of Sidi boots which gave up the ghost.

    I just bought a new Triple sport leather jacket (did not pay that much for it.),a new miti vac pump for bleeding brakes and a whole bunch of cleaning supplies including ceramic coating for my wheels.

    They had that jacket at the dealership and I tried it on, very nice. Asked if it was included with the new bike purchase :D, he said not at that price!! I've looked at the similar mesh version for the summer, but no back protector option in it. Too many of their other jackets are all black or all dark colours, not my choice!

    It matches my speed triple! And made me want it. It does fit quite well and is protected. My dealer offered my 30% off and then I found it on World Of Triumph, they had it for $238USD. I couldn’t pass it up. Now I feel like innées the matching pants.

    A set of Baja Designs S1 lights. Hopefully the brain-dead mouth-breathing car drivers around here will start seeing me.

    Should be able to make time to install them tomorrow.

    finally decided to blow the $60 and buy the T-bar depth attachment for my brown and sharpe dial caliper

    20231028_164020.jpg

    the attacment should have come with the caliper when i bought it, but didnt

    20231028_164029.jpg

    anyway, i ve needed it for seating the needle bearings on the triumph four and five speed layshafts, and for freeplay measurement on camshaft bushings when the cams wont turn. its not as accurate as a set of real depth micrometers, but most of my depth measurements are just interested in okay? or too little?

    20231028_164054.jpg

    now theres another inscrutable tool to leave to my kids to figure out

    I have a few Mitutoyo digital calipers for various tasks but I do like the visual benefit of a dial caliper for certain jobs, especially when using it as a comparator like checking valve shims out of an assortment box.
    The new bit will make life easier and I now just buy items like this justifying it, if need be, on what it actually saves in others labour charges. ;)

    My only reservation there is, will it interfere with others observation of the front indicators i.e. the white brightness flare outshines the yellow/orange flashing.

    Hopefully not. The photo has a lot more flare than looking with one's eyes, but one can still see the turn signals in the photo. Rear turn signals are more important anyway, as most road users forward probably have the right of way unless they're turning left (or turning right in countries that drive on the left).

    I mounted them as far away as possible while not interfering with suspension etc. Pretty close to the headlights.

    I have special knee pads mounted on my tank to protect against scratches. At Amazon I found what I was looking for. They were custom made within 2 days in Italy and were in my mailbox after another 4 days at home. I think the result is great.

    Yesterday I did a 400 km ride to mount some add ons on my bike. The weather in the morning was not really good. 6 degree celsius and very wet foggy conditions on my first 200 km to my workshop.
    There we mounted crash guards, a splash and stone guard for the engine and 13 plastic covers for existing frame openings. I am very satisfied with the result. Afterwards I rode back home in dry and warm weather. This ride was great! ;)

    I've been spending money on my new H-D Low Rider ST lately. I finally received and installed a couple of the "big" things--my LePera "Kickflip" customized seat and my Rinehart mufflers. These photos also show the detachable sissy bar that I bought so I can attach a touring bag using it as the primary attachment point while the bag sits on the pillion area of the new seat. I love how the pipes sound and the seat is wonderful! Very pleased with both purchases. :grinning: Good thing as they were NOT cheap! :p
