Trying to get back to the Thruxton now that the weather is getting even nicer...

Ignition relocation mount for the thruxton, now that the gauge mount I designed came back from the manufacturer

Also trying out some new levers. Chinese eBay levers, but by all accounts they work very well. Now that I have them in my hands, I can say they are pretty impressive for how cheap they are.

Also wanted to ditch the stock napoleon mirrors, so I snagged a set of these to try out.

Made of stinky plastic bits from China that assuredly cause cancer in California. Hoping the smell leaves after a few days...

That aside, an entirely useful little grip for video work.

Yesterday I ordered a Cravenspeed iPhone Mount Pro Series. I just started using Waze, and this should make it so much better. If you haven't tried Waze yet, you should. It's a crowd sourced navigation app. I went for a joy ride yesterday looking for interesting roads and it made it quite fun. I was reporting police and closed roads and accidents and all of it. PM if you want a Waze friend in the Los Angeles area or beyond.

What other ones do you use (that you like better)? Looking for options (that have a reasonable price) after this one gets destroyed/lost/stolen/etc...
