Get anything for Christmas for your Bike?

Nothing here.
But Santa did bring me some nice socks, a can of peanuts, and a bunch of other stuff. No bike stuff, tho'. I don't think Santa is bike-friendly.

No matter...a GREAT Christmas, regardless!

Noel, everybody!

I bought my bike in early November and have been slapping stuff on it ever since.....an affliction I tell ya! The latest was a spade fuse relocation kit. That was after the center stand, Thermobob, and handlebar risors, and new radiator hoses. I can feel a new petcock in the future..........Here honey, take the card!

Merry Christmas to all of you, and thanks for sharing your knowledge and experience

Nothing for the bike but the wife gave me a new camera to document my adventures. Canon Powershot ELPH 130. It is slimmer, lighter and has a better zoom that the one I had.

My brother-in-law came thru again with a Burns-Moto USB outlet and a set of the narrow Rok Straps!
My sister gave me a tinted shield for the helmet!
And my wife is great, got a pair of the large Rok Straps and a set of four LED turn signals. She just won't ride with me.

Got myself some brake pads. Wife got me a led panel for the rear tail light. Tired of people riding my ass on the commute. Wonder where she got the idea...

My girls got me reflective stickers.

My wife got me a decent pair of overpants and a nice tool box. I bought the KLR a Tankvest...but it fits the IMS 6.6 gal tank I don't have yet (8-10 week backorder).

I gots some soft n' gushy Wal Mart bicycle grips.

I'm actually outta stuff to do other than tweaking and maintenance.
I did the alterations to make it fit me better, and the standard mods
most of us do. My New Years resolution is to ride at least 5,000 miles
this year. Fell 72 mi short in 2014. No, I'm not riding today just to make
the miles. It's 17 degrees. Gonna cook the last fatty of the year and go
hang with my family.

Addition: Got two 5 gallon cans of gas when it went under two bucks also.
When the price goes back up I have 400-500 miles of cruise ready.

Since I just got my 2015 on December 16th I've been purchasing items here and there trying not to get too crazy about it all at once. I spent about 4 hours today at the dealership BSing with the salesman I purchased my bike from and while I was there I purchased a Center Stand, Lift Handle, Skid Plate, and a Kawasaki KLR650 motorcycle cover. Was actually going there just to pick up the items I listed but ending up spending the morning there. Just more Merry Christmas to me.
