Thursday the new exhaust came, put it on Friday..... Aaaaa 
The instructions claimed 60 min. installation... Dodgy 
Reality was 180 min.. Facepalm   I had to make two trips to auto parts store and two trips to a hardware store.. Mad 
But I persevered, sounds much better, has a nice bass rumble, not really annoying loud.
When I returned home Friday, the gear indicator had arrived..... Aaaaa 
Installed that, this morning. Simple installation, but I need to "Program" it...... Undecided 
Then I went for a three hour ride....SWEET... Eusa_whistle 
Below are pictures of...... an ORIGINAL exhaust then the AFTER MARKET... Cheers

Nothing wrong with red Tongue

Making your motorcycle louder would probably be illegal over here - part of the registration approval is the noise level of the vehicle  Rolleyes

Here too....It's not really louder in DB, just a more bass, deep throaty sound instead of a high cry-baby sound.

Today I put the crash spindles on the front and rear. The rear also act as lift spindles, so I can raise the rear up off the ground and
stabilize the bike off the side kickstand. Picture below in order: without sliders....With sliders....On paddock stand, rear wheel up, bike
off side kickstand.

Made it back. It's a 45min. one way trip to the hangar. Flew for 30min. Operational cost on my helicopter is about $150.00 + an hour.
So, I limit flight time. It was nice and warm once up, that's due to "greenhouse" of the cockpit. First time I got to ride the bike and 
fly the "flying bike" on the same day. That's what retirement is all about....PLAYTIME... Thumbsup 
Oh, the 45 min. trip by land is only 14 min. by air.... Sisi1

An update....added the gear indicator a few weeks back, so I'm adding that pic. I put on the rail slider, kinda hard to do alone.
I had to cut my heat guard in order to mount it. I'm waiting on the Shark helmet, which was mailed today. It is coming from Belgium.
It's not D.O.T. approved for use in the U.S. but my state doesn't require a helmet......So I'm still safe and legal here.
GEAR INDICATOR  (0) is neutral.

FRAME SLIDER INSTALLED

Purpose of the sliders are to protect vital/expensive parts if I drop the bike... Tongue 
Moving or parked.. Cheers
