    Default What Did You Do To Your RYKER Today?

    There is a thread like this in the Spyder feed, so why not start one in the Ryker Feed

    I will start it off.

    Took my wife's Ryker Rally out for one last time (I think) before old man winter sets in. My next post on it will be once the Tricled Fender Lights come in Thursday and I install them this weekend.

    Rode 55 miles today, now at 4425.1. Plenty of good weather still to come here in New Mexico!

    Only thing I did, to my Ryker today was look at it in the garage. Make sure she is still there ready to be fired up. I hate winter but can't move my kids school just yet.

    Well, today, I made an adjustment to my custom tail trunk to reduce movement. However yesterday was sunny and 78 so I went out for a long ride. Rain and 40's tomorrow so it will sit in the garage.

    I rode for about 2 hours today. I can dress for the 40's but not much below that. I plan on riding year around as long as it's not raining or freezing. Why have fun only in the summer?

    I made some adjustments to my PIAA lights. Bouncing around on the dirt roads, they would move some and ended up aiming high. So I put an extra bolt in each one and hopefully this will tighten them up so they won't move. Then I went for a ride and took some pictures of where I got stuck the other night. Worried about getting out that night and never crossed my mind to take pictures of it stuck. Had been down it 5 or 6 times before but didn't make it that time. Also threw in a picture of how my Rally looks now. Enjoy the ride.

    Now THAT is really a Rally edition! Looks cool with the added protection and lights!

    Love those lights I have the PIAA 530 LED light setting in the garage. Which mounting bracket did you use? Do you have the link for the brackets?

    I always rode year around here in NJ on my 2 wheels. Now I have the Ryker year around riding shouldn't be problem unless work gets in the way. I have heated gear jacket and gloves. Coldest I ever rode is 15*F comfortable for 2 hours then you need HOT Chocolate.

    Used PIAA 74000 7/8" - 1.25" L-Bracket (twin pack). Got them and the lights from Amazon. They fit perfectly on the grill guard. Combined with the LED's I put in the headlights they really light up the back roads that I'm on most of the time. I've had heat stroke issues and have to do a lot of night riding during the summer here in Texas and they've made it a lot more enjoyable and safer.

    It was a nice day today. I had to call in sick just to go for a nice ride.

    I took mine to Home depot to get some light bulbs, then to fill the gas tank because I was tucking it in bed for the winter. But on my way to Home depot, I took a right instead of a left.
    Then I took a road that I never took before, got lost, then found my way back on track. The Ryker is perfect for taking the road less traveled.
    When I got home I put some Stabil in the tank and plugged in the battery tender.

    Rode as I usually do to the golf club and back - about 10 miles enjoying the beautiful mid 70's weather. Don't know why everyone living in Florida doesn't drive a Ryker

    Oh - by the way - shot 75 so a pretty good day all around

    Default Replaced some parts!

    So today I replaced the standard seat with the new solo seat.
    As well, I installed the gauge pod re-locator
    and installed the sport handle bars!

    I like it!
    Are those panels standard or did you do them yourself?
    How do you like the new gauge pod and handlebars? I bet it gives a real aggressive stance when riding.

    The white side panels are standard, the rear panel is not.
    I purchased the "ryker" sticker online and then added the black stripe to the hood panel and the rear panel.

    Where did you get the cluster relocator at? My dealership here in Santa Rosa said it’s in backorder until March.

    Moving the data panel forward is great for the young, but this old codger has to have it close enough to read it. Looks great. You have a real nice looking vehicle there, cjc.

    I haven't driven on it yet, winter setting in here in Canada.
    But sitting on it seems much more comfortable than the
    comfort seat I had previously. And with a little more height
    it gives me more leg room as well.

    It was another beautiful day here in Northern New Jersey and Upstate NY. Since I am off for the holidays I decided to ride a little. 180 miles later gassed her up plug into trickle charger, she won't see day light until after the holidays.

    Sorry, missed this post/question. I ordered it from my dealer back in October when it was released. Strange that your dealer has it back ordered
    until March.
