I'm trying to set up the bike to be my moving easy chair, like the road king was. The XCT is smooth, but I am not setting very long without wiggling around from the rounded seat.
I'm out of Spfd, OR.
Cool that you are winning the chemo battle.
I would strongly recommend Rich's custom seats in Kinston Wa. He has done the seats on my last three rides. Can't believe the difference on a long ride. Well worth the money

Safety First

Whenever I obtain another bike, first thing I modify or add are those related to safety. On my XC that meant an HID Headlamp kit in both hi and lo beam and a Loud ass horn. In this case I had the dealer install a PIAA slimline horn in the oem location. While it is an improvement, it is not as loud as I would have hoped.

I am still looking for an additional or alternative horn that I can get to really pierce the fog that surrounds cagers. I live in a tourist area, largest drive to vacation destination on the east coast...... We call them TOURONS......... Half Tourist, Half MORON expecially when then are driving.

I opened the key fob and took a bit of wire to connect points to see what two would cycle the door. Once I had them, I marked them. I then removed the top of my headlight bucket and disconnected the clutch side wire harness as well as the switch box so that I could remove the whole thing. I ran two wires through the sheath. At the end where it connects in the headlight, I left enough length and soldered the two wires to the previously mentioned connection points. The other end that goes to the switch box is connected in two points. If you look at the switch assembly, you'll see a small screw in a copper piece. Back the screw out, wrap a wire end around it and tighten back down. Then push the switch in like you're cancelling a turn signal. I heated up a needle to push it through the white plastic so I could thread the other wire through and super glue it at the other side to stay in place. You want this hole right at the end of the switch when fully depressed. The point is to close the circuit of the opener. Works great and have had no problems. Took me about an hour or two to do it all.


just curious because I think I am over analyzing the situation within my head. I have tried multiple points on my opener and I have more that 2. Also is there a way to do this with a 2 channel transmitter? I have a gate opener and garage door opener.

Some live to ride, I ride to live.
