    Steering lock key

    I never bother with it, and I'm not even sure where the key is anymore. Steering locks are too easily defeated. Get a disk lock for out AND a ground anchor for home.

    Wind screen

    I have an older model, but the Dart Flyscreen works well, looks good, and isn't expensive. I'm sure they have a model that fits the newer line.

    Lowering Handlebars bonneville 2018

    I put Flanders Clubman bars on, I love them. You do need to be careful on setup because they are low enough that in some configurations the controls can hit (and dent) the tank. My profile pic shows them.

    I see those guys like once a year, but I follow Peter on FB. He was badly injured in a crash a couple of years ago, and has been focusing on other areas and projects.

    WTB steering stabilizer Hinckley Bonneville

    I bought a friction-style damper from Farley and Ace (in Pittston, PA), but I don't think the owner is making parts anymore.

    New Ink

    Fezzes are cool! My pics were just after Trish, the owner (with her husband Radar) of Valor Tattoo in Trevose PA, finished. I go the same way; give the artist the basic idea and maybe some examples, then let them do their thing.

    T100 2017 with passenger

    The idea that you need more than the 865 to carry a passenger is ridiculous. Heck, I did a two-up trip from Philadelphia PA to Bangor Maine on a CB550 back in the '80s. About the only thing you may want to do, and you probably want to anyway, is upgrade the rear suspension, stock is pretty...

    Dealer Backlash!

    To be honest, having watched my local go through this successfully, It seems a bit one-sided. But yes, it can be expensive. So I'll ask you all; do you support your dealer? Do you get service done there, buy accessories and maintenance items (oil, etc) there? Or do they only see you when it is...

    A "cool" oil cooler alternative to the stock oil cooler

    I have one of the older versions of this cooler, and I really love the way it looks, much cleaner than stock. I like the black tubes, is that anodized or paint?

    EBay return

    I avoid buying from overseas, particularly China or other Asian vendors, as much because of the delay in getting things but also the quality and/or counterfeit issues.

    Is it possible to put a suicide shifter on the T100?

    Suicide shift isn't about only shifting down, it refers to either the old-style hand shift where you had to take a hand off the grips to shift, or to the also old-style foot clutch, where you had to keep the pedal depressed when stopped as there was no "neutral" position.

    lucas light fitment

    I just got the kit, and I have a problem. The instruction say to put "the ring terminal" over the top screw on the underside of the fender, but unless I am blind I don't see any such thing down there. Am I in trouble? It looks like it will fit fine, the extra holes won't show and the spacers...
