Had a sunny and warm (24C) countryside ride to the Harley shop for a couple of Jiffy stand bushes.

I dusted it off early this morning, rode to work and since it was 60 degrees took the long way home after work.

You get brownie points if you let the speed cameras take the photos for you.

Today I was working on a bracket to mount the ghetto-mounted Hella Sharptone properly so that my bike is nice and horny. I'll have to work on one with 2mm steel because today's bracket seems flimsy.
I discovered that the ghetto-mounted Sharptone (low) is now acting funny (mechanical stress?) so I have to replace it with the other one (high) in the pack. I wonder if I should have bought the HD Loud Horn instead.

Update (20 Oct): Today I finally made the 2mm bracket, and it's not as flimsy and is a bit springy. Unfortunately the one thing I completely forgot about is that the horn might just leave an impression in the front mudguard if the forks bottom out (which they love doing at the moment).
