As is often the case with a well used bike, many pieces are not quite original or altogether missing. Such was the case for my mirrors: missing in action. Truth be told, I never liked the the Gixxer stock mirrors from the 80's and early 90's. I went searching for something a little more fashionable. I found this "blingin" set for a reasonable price at RoaringToyz.com. The chrome is a little over the top, but matches the fasteners I've been putting on the body work. I'm fairly sure my kids are horrified by my sense (or lack) of style.
I started playing with the battery layout. The six 17AH units fit with room to spare in the upper battery tray. The maze of wires is starting to hit home.
The "dedicated charger for each battery" scheme has one serious drawback - cable management. Where am I supposed to stuff these things?
