    OK, let's compromise.
    I can accept short pipes if I have a supercharger bolted to my 961.
    Agreed?:p

    Had a great 80+ mile ride today in the San Gabriel mountains here in Southern California, part of the annual Hansen Dam British bike extravaganza, and it seemed like a good time to update the list.

    It was a good weekend to ride a British bike in California. We had the annual All-British ride out of Novato in Northern California. Great roads in Marin and Sonoma counties, perfect 70-80 degree weather and a bunch of cool bikes. A couple of Vincents showed up, a Vindian ( Vincent motor in an Indian, actually very nicely done) and the organizer of the ride brought his Hesketh Vampire. I ended up with a 180 mile day after all was said and done.

    Wow. That sounds like a great event. It was 55 and sunny yesterday so I put 60 miles on the wee Bonnie. Sometimes the little one just makes me smile more.

    Did you get those big handle bar muffs too?

    You’ll be fitting girlie ape hangers next at this rate...

    That made me chuckle. Spent the best part of about 3 hours fitting them. Got the R&G ones from the NEC £35.00. Seat off, tank off, flyscreen off. The grips are slighty bigger than the standard but you wouldn't even l know that i am a softy. No muffs or apes. At least I can get my head down in summer and cold sunny days now without my hands locking out. And you and your new sissy bars

    There were a couple of stands for all the heated clothes and of course gloves. But I am a bit of a fair weather rider but do love a cold day ride out and even with good gloves, 10 miles in, my hands are killing me. Hope to try them out soon and report back

    I’ve only ever had one bike with heated grips.

    They didn’t work for me. It’s my finger tips that get cold in winter. With heated grips I ended up with cold finger tips and hot palms!

    To my mind, heated gloves sound like they’d be more effective, but I’ve never tried any.

    Mid day temps here in the 60's (F, that is), so I was planning a ride today on the 961. Wouldn't start (battery finally died), so I took the TDM 850 instead. Fun, but just not the same.
