    I spent a good chunk of time looking for and finally finding the Accessory wiring in the front of my '19 RTL. I finally discovered it after taking the battery out and it was right behind the rubber plug in the left side of the frunk. After finding it, I ran the power cable that came with my Zumo XT from the accessory wiring terminals back and up to where the switches are for the fog lights and the grip heaters. I removed one of the blanks and brought the wiring up through there and up to my GPS center mounted base. All I can say is that working on the Spyder and doing stuff like this is a b!tch!.....but it's done and working.

    The excitement of the day just might be opening up my new half cover for the RT, the full cover for the Ryker, and installing a new belt tensioner.......

    Funny you should make the 'dusty' comment, mine too has dust, I gotta wipe it own so can collect more dust.

    Just ordered the anti-sway bar for my 2014 RTL from Bajaron! Had great chat with him on cell phone. Super sharp guy! Might go for a ride today since we have sunshine. Keeping a Fronk full of non perishable groceries in case I'm questioned about being "out-and-about". "Just coming back from the necessary grocery stock-up".

    I guess it varies from state to state, but there is absolutely nothing against any Executive order about going riding in TN. In fact, they are encouraging people to get out and walk, exercise, etc, but keep your 6' distance from each other. Every time we ride, we pack a cooler with some water/drinks and a few snacks and just go out and enjoy the beautiful weather and the gorgeous roads...without making contact with others, even when we stop to take a break.

    If you ride even a little faster than a snail's pace, you will notice a huge improvement in the handling and cornering with the sway bar. It is night and day different, and the harder you push it, the better it performs. Win - Win!

    Thumbs down More poor design from BRP

Hope it all works and stays together as this silly piece of plastic costs $104. Looked at three suppliers and they were the same price. After seeing that ridiculous price---- I had to find a way to fix it.

    UPDATE:
    After fixing the above, two more problems cropped up:
    1. The trickled fenderz, sequential light I recently installed weren't right so I dove into them also. A loose connection at the mirror tap . If you have these the connector MUST be pushed together REALLY hard or it will come loose. I taped it also.
    2. As in the first fix, a tab has broken off but this time on the bottom of the mirror. Right where you strike to to remove the mirror ( if you don't have the Magic mirror magnets) I'm sure it broke a while back when I was hitting the mirror to remove it ( what a poor design in the first place). Another $100+ part of brittle plastic.

    I received my new UltraGuard half cover. The Nelson Rigg half cover for my 2014 doesn't fit the new 2020 RT Limited.

    We mobile self-isolated the last 2 days. Went for a ride in the hinterlands of the Missouri/Arkansas/Oklahoma Ozarks. Didn't see a soul in 5 hours of riding yesterday from the time we left Anderson, MO until we got to Grove OK, about 10 miles from home. Today we went to Indigo Sky Casino near Seneca MO. Gloria had previously rode a VW trike with an automatic transmission for 10 years, never piloted either of the Goldwing trikes we had, and hasn't hasn't much seat time in the front on the Spyder. With this Stay-At-Home order in Missouri (outdoor activities are allowed as long as the 6' and less than 10 people rule is followed) the casino is empty, and there are huge parking lots for her in which to practice. She even got up to 4th gear for the first time today. Another practice or two for confidence building and we'll hit the real roads. A few times on mostly empty roads and I'll lead or follow her on the Bonneville while she solos.

    Removed the RH tupperware to try and isolate my air suspension leak. Next stop is trunk removal to expose entire system. Pump is D.O.A. so a direct connection will be plumbed unless there is a hole in the airbag.

    Couple of days ago I added and LED bumpskid to my 2017 F3 Limited. Can't have enough lights either front or rear. I bought the LED bumpskid from a Spyderlovers member who had bought it from Tricled but never installed it. The install was about a 5 on the scale of difficulty as you have to drill holes and have to be pretty careful when drilling.

    Default Backrest report.

    Fitted a BRP drivers backrest to wifes F3. Super comfy Must mention the ordinary fitment of the mounting bracket though.Had to ream out the bolt hold that locks the bracket down, it was miles out.Also ended up packing blocks of wood and plywood around the bracket to take out the excessive play it gave the backrest.Downright disconcerting having the thing flexing back and forth and twisting sideways whilst riding.Big ''0'' for the mounting of the thing especially for the price paid.

    A couple of days ago, but I removed the rust on the back rack of my 2016 RT-L. One spot where the chrome plating is completely gone I "fixed" with shiny nail polish. Next project will be a louder horn.

    Sandeejs....Horns like these? Loud and car like, but I don't know if there's that kind of space in an RT.

    I have a pair of mini floorboards from Web Boards coming. Installed USB in center console, phone holder, Spyderzone zippered bag inserts and drink2 go carriers and foam handlebar covers. Looking for armrests and backrest and trailer hitch/wiring.
