That's a toll thingy... it allows me to breeze through toll booths without stopping. Whenever I ride, and think I'm going to have a toll issue, I grab it from the car and suctioncup it to the windscreen. The string is a tether so in case it falls off, I won't lose it.

Hey Tink,

I have an old Minolta SRT-101. Want it?

If you come to a fork in the road, take it!

What a gorgeous photo! Very well done.

Changed oil w/filter, clutch & break fluid. Along with previously installed/serviced plugs, valve clearance check, new Michelin Road Pilot 3's, throttle & clutch cables lubed, washed and waxed, I'm ready for 2017 riding season! Bring it on baby!!

Sure. PM me with details.

Even though I'm a Nikon fan, I enjoy shooting with any of the vintage manual focus cameras.

RE: What did you do on, or to, your CB today?

Rear blinker resistors.

How satisfying to do a little research and fix an issue which is not life threatening but annoying-HYPERBLINKING. When I purchased the bike,I,likemost everyone, had to move the stock rears blinkers to make room for luggage. I received a nice set of extender wires from Japan Web!ke (I believe that is Mr T?) plus some new lights. The replacement LEDs have less resistance and blink rapidly. A quick trip to Autozone for a set of resistors, 15 minutes to install them in parallel with each bulb and I have normally timed turn signals. One resistor for each light. The instructions warn about excessive heat generated by the resistors but I let the lights blink for an extended time and no heat was noticed.

Also have some aftermarket side covers coming from Japan Web!ke with a new logo. They need paint which is coming from Color Rite. Photos to follow. The covers are presently attempting to pass through customs in LA.

Very satisfying week and I am enjoying the comfort of the plexistar 2. No thread intention just statement of fact.

Can't wait to see the photos!

Webike is Webike. Mr. T owns Samurider. Both are good, reputable, places.

Resistors will drop the voltage from the battery in order to limit the current to the LEDs. There are calculators on-line that can provide the proper value (in ohms) of the resistor required.

The wattage (current x voltage) of the circuit also has to been determined so the proper wattage of the resistor is chosen. If the wattage of the resistor is too small, it may overheat and fail.

RE: What did you do on, or to, your CB today?

Thank you. Most of the articles mentioned a 50W 6 ohm resistor. The Autozone resistors only list them as 12 V 6 ohm.

I appreciate the information.
