I like his electrical panel. Very clean. The FLIR is over the top.

If it's worth doing, it's worth overdoing.

Nothing's too cruel if it's funny enough.

I bet you hardly notice the extra weight of 100lbs of accessories on a bike like the Gold Wing

Right you are! I've flown USAF jet aircraft with fewer switches than that Goldwing!

I wonder if he has time to notice where he's going?

[QUOTE=Arion;182557]Right you are! I've flown USAF jet aircraft with fewer switches than that Goldwing!


Arion, I was thinking the same thing - except my version was carrier-based Navy jets.

I was actually reading this while sitting in Brazil on a layover and wondering how long the ground school is for that thing. School for the 777 was about a month - and I think this bike might be more complicated.

But to each his own. This guy is clearly a craftsman. I should show this to my wife so she would feel much better about what I've spent this past year on getting the V "just right."

Now there's a really excellent plan. Show the wife over-the-top examples so our "sensible" modifications seem so much more reasonable. Great idea!
