See if you can tell what is missing here.........
Well.....the word Honda is missing. Nice bit of personalizing. I've added a very few farkles so far, may be more in the future.

I'm hoping that the Rivco armrests come soon. I'm backordered still.

Who did you order from? Wingstuff called me Tuesday I think it was and the next batch is ready. Mine were shipped direct from Wingstuff but I would think if you already ordered them you should have gotten the call.

I ordered from Wingstuff. I contacted them yesterday and they didn't give me a very positive answer. Just said I'm on the list and they didn't know yet. Hopefully soon, the wife would be happy which will keep me happy.

I had a fella PM me on another forum last week. He had a few of these and offered my one. I will copy and paste the PM he sent here. Give him a call, you never know, he might still have them or maybe got some of the new ones.

This is the PM................

We have 2 sets be here tomorrow. www.bikesandtrikesllc.com
Call 318-388-0448 and ask for Steve. He will be in around 11:00 and same price as wing stuff.

Nice looking tail end, Buzzy. It really PoPs!
Thanks Chop! I was a little leary of ordering it but I'm glad I did. It completly fills the rear fender cavity and fits like a glove.

And if you notice that strip of LED's on the bottom? Those are some of the brightest LED's I have seen on a bike. The come ready to be wired into the brake and running lights. That is how I have them and I also use a brake light modulator, they work great!

I just came into $700 of spending cash ( unfortunately, I caved in and told Mz. Vickie ). It is harder to spend it than to have nothing and just imagine what you would want.

You can do a lot of damage with $700 smackers! How about the Rivco armrest for starters?:D

If she wants them I will gladly get them. First thing to get her is a helmet and I will need a matching one. That will probably eat up about $300. We will go from there.

Hey Chopin... look into the HJC is-33, it is a nice helmet and has a drop down dark shield. It adapts well to the Edsets I installed in it and I have not experienced wind noise with it. Love it! The price is right to Wingstuff VIP members as well. I paid $118 vs $135 on most sites.

That's the one, Charles. I'm am open face rider but like the shield option and the mini sun shield is a nice bonus. Now pick me a color: Metallic White or Black ?

That's the helmet we use. Pretty good but I get a good bit of wind noise. I still would pick it again. Hmmm....white bike so white helmets, or black to contrast? I think that I would choose black.

My thought also. The visibility factor of white is well established, but black won't contrast with my rag tag riding clothes. Wait until Buzzy sees where his Farkle thread has drifted to. I'm expecting a PM from him any minute now to tell me to get back on his topic.

What do you think I have a Beemer in my garage or something?:D

I wanted to go with the red helmet because it compliments the red 'wing, however, I went with the light silver grey because it matches my wife's older HJC that we already have.... and what I also discovered - the grey matches the Tourmaster grey/black raingear we have... which is a bigger plus than matching the motorcycle... so I am glad I got the grey.

Nice job on taking off the Honda badge Buzzy, did it come off easily? was there any adhesive residue left? Ditto on the IS-33 Maestro, and we chose the matte silver for ours (mesquite metallic bike) to go with our Nirvana grey/black jackets. I find black helmets very hot in the warmer weather and they mark up real easily. Buzzy I love that license plate holder, too bad our Alberta plates are such a stupid size, you have to get creative with a set of snips to make them fit any of those pieces, and then the annual authorization tags don't fit where they should (looks a bit out of sorts). Where'd you get it (my plate is cut already so....)?
