    2018 - What R U doing to get ready?

    I'm looking on my chalkboard in my garage where I list all the things I want to fix/mod/buy for the next season. I usually make this list after I tuck the bike away, and realize its January already......and I've done nothing, well, except buy a new pair of boots

    I'm thinking a new heated liner, a vest this time, something thinner than my Gerbings jacket which doesn't fit all that well under my new tighter jacket. Most likely will go hybrid hard wire + battery powered.

    Also wanting to get a second helmet, a flip up specifically. Heard Shoei is coming out with a new one.

    What's on your list?

    Reading your list is on my list.

    I got new boots at the end of the season. I'd like a new two-piece suit this year. I also have some new tires to mount up before the season really starts.

    sena kit, rearsets, ss lines, new pads, lose the passenger peg and holders for single r&g exhaust holder, perhaps lower my tripletree 5mm, maybe a newsuit? lithium battery? Not sure how much of that I will do, but that is the pencilled in list on my desk.

    New Sena comm's set - check!
    New Bike - check!

    I'll have the tedious job of installing my license plate - hopefully I get the time to do it by the end of April...

    Don't mount that plate yet ....... there is a 37% chance you'll sell the bike by May 2.

    I'm looking at installing an electronic cruise control on the VFR, heated grips or the OEM windblockers, changing all fluids and if I get really ambitious; cat removal and dyno tuning.

    Those 90 degree valve stems would be nice as well. I should pick up a set for when I do next tire change. If I go for a new helmet, it will be the Neotec for sure. I already own one and it's been super comfortable for the past 3 years.

    But hey, Sikorsky is sadly correct - I'm waiting before I book my service appointment in for the plate install until at least the end of March in case this crow see's something shinier elsewhere.

    ....and first time using a Comm unit so I'm a little worried I won't like it - I've always been one to point fingers at those with ear buds in or a gaggle of riders riding at a snails pace but everyone looks like their Italian with all the hand gestures from yakkin' away to each other.
