> I think that is a good idea too............and I just looked, and only have a
few photos of my bike actually packed. (I am a bit photo shy, and do not take
too many photos). I get bored in the winter, and will take photos of my bike,
packed in the garage, one day soon.
>

As for another winter project-
I reflectorized my helmets using 3M 690 series reflective sheeting, and
posted the results in the photos section of the web page (Called "Winter
helmet project" They really, really, shine at night. The sheeting can
be applied and removed, until you apply pressure to it. I have it on
three different brand helmets, with no adverse reactions. (Shoei, HJC, AGV)

http://autos.ph.groups.yahoo.com/group/ipcrc/photos/browse/a205

BTW
The helmets are mostly decorated in Thai words. Just by coincidence, PC
(PEE SEE) in Thai has a meaning. PEE can mean two things- either
"Ghost", or "Elder" (Elder friend, brother, sister, co-worker, etc.) SEE
means two things also, "four" (4), or, "the color of"
SEE DANG means "the color of" red (dang) DUM is black, KAO is
white.........(for Candy Apple Red, you will have to consult an actual
Thai person).
So, depending on the tone mark, the PEE SEE DANG can mean red ghost or
red older friend.
If anyone is interested, (some members of the CB250 group were
interested in the designs) I posted some of the more common colors here,
http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/CB250_Nighthawk/files/Winter%20helmet%20proj\
ect/

to download and cut out. But, the idea is to make your own design, maybe
that favorite tattoo design you always wanted to get, but did not want
to put on your skin, and make your own unique helmet.

I will try to post the packed bike photos soon.

Mike

Has anyone looked seriously at what it would take to graft a trunk onto an ST? Revill 1a. Re: Engine Swap (using early V4) Posted by: "itsmikey295"

    No, But that would be interesting to see if someone did. I love my ST, but do miss the trunk. Guess I'll just have to get a Top Box:^) Debbie in NC --- In

      Other than the "wow that's different" factor, for convenience I personally would rather have saddlebags than the trunk. This is especially true when I have my tankbag mounted. Ron --- In

        I know it's blasphemy on this list but I'll agree with Ron. Detachable bags, even if they load from the side, (maybe even better) beat the trunk for convenience. I have now had both and it is soooo handy to take off the saddlebags and carry t

            I sold my Honda trunk bags and use backpacks (day pack size) inside the trunk. When lain on their sides, they are just the right shape, but have all those extra compartments, and you can use them for hiking at your destination. I also use

          I do like both the Saddlebags & the PC Trunk. Regardless of how I packed the trunk when I had the PC or the ST Saddlebags, which I have now, I still use a waterproof Duffle strapped on the seat. Saves more space for goodies I get on the r

            Hello fellow PCers, Yesterday a cow-orker followed me home from work. I was told I did not have any brake lights. My first thought was, fuse or wire connection. Where would you suggest I start looking? Thanks in advance, Ecki

              Hey "Scar" The fuse box is an easy first look. If that is good then start at the lights and work backward. It's possible that both lights are burned out. If you've had your tires changed recently, they might not have reconnec

      Just a reminder for folks who need more room once in a while. RKA Luggage (http://www.rka-luggage.com) makes seat bags that work quite well on the passenger seat of a PC. Winglet has a 36 liter expandable
