Installing heated grips originally meant for an ATV on my beloved DL650 "Indy". Fairly easy process if you know which wires to use and you also happen to know someone who has been working on bikes for about 30 years.
Now, if I can just get Wayne to help me change the cam chain in my Gixxer...
(As a product review note, I saved about $250 by installing the generic ATV grip warmers... the Suzuki stuff was very expensive, and only slightly more adjustable than what I have now. The ride home tonight was fantastic, my hands stayed warm (hot even) and I've about $34 in the experience.)
Heated grips - AARGGGGHHHH!!!
I am suffering as a result of fitting heated grips. Keep watching and you'll find out why I have no skin on my right palm. (Ooerr) :-P

The worst bike review ever (Triumph Street Triple and Tiger 800 XC)
My friend was test riding a Triumph Street Triple, and I took the chance to borrow a Tiger 800 XC for a few hours. Here are our barely coherent thoughts. It was pretty cold, in our defence.
My friend had recently passed his bike test and I convinced him a Street Triple would be more fun than the ER-6n he tried the week before.
I think his opening statement demonstrates this quite well.
Gerbings Heated Motorcycle Gloves T5 Review
Tired of riding in cold weather with frozen hands, see this review of the Gergings T5 heated motorcycle gloves; it may turn these annoying cold days into fun motorcycle riding days.
Resquested video to show how my heated grips work.
Crashing my Street Triple in my own street! Cold tyres and a little too much gas - still can't quite understand it......maybe there was something on the tyre as I didn't go mad, but I was accelerating. Shredded the arm of a 5month old textile jacket but the Forcefield Pro Sub 4 backprotector was a good investment, and the hip and elbow protectors did their work. Still got a bruised hip and that was only about 12mph probably?
no prisoners 2012!

How to install a 12 volt power outlet (cigarette lighter) on your motorcycle.
Here is a 12v power outlet (cigarette lighter) install done on a Suzuki Hayabusa. This can be used to charge your cell phone, power your GPS or just about anything you can think of. The adapter I used here (TRACKSIDE 12 Volt Power Adapter) is rated for 120 watts.
Here is a link to the part used in the install from Cycle gear. http://www.cyclegear.com/eng/product/12_volt_power_adapter/web1007420
