Picked up a spare factory cage. I only needed the rear piece to replace the one I have that is bent. But picked up the whole thing for half price of just the back piece. Now I just need to get my buddy to powdercoat it. If anyone needs the front or middle section let me know.

The real question is: How many Mexican restaurants did you and the Mrs stop at on the way there and back to pick it up? 😁

Well, as with lots of things I needed to do a little modification. I really like my triangle bags and the 10-80 was going to rub so I got a silicone 90°, a short piece of pipe, and it's out of the way. The bag will still touch the elbow but that's no big deal. Will I need a brace to keep it from sagging? I'll find out next week. A 45 may have worked better.

Received a photo from HOF this morning with a progress report on my Talons. Looks as if Jacob/HondaTech or whatever he goes by now, has been working on the '23. I bent a radius arm on the '19 and decided to acquire several CATech goodies for more clearance and improved handling/steering. Shocks are en-route back from Double E for the '19. TO24 was a great time and gave me insight on several issues needing to be addressed. Making a slight tuning change to the '19 in hopes of achieving a little more oomph like the '23 has. Excited to get a realigned machine with reworked suspension, a little reduction in rotating mass, replacing a suspect rear axle, and an additional antenna for the Tread. It's also nice having access to so many knowledgable members with practical experience. Thanks everyone.

But why sdo you like the JAT when you could get a nice Poo-Poo trap like that Talonski guy? 😆
