I have been getting a lot of interest from people when i tell them i built my own motorcycle tracker and website to support it. Unfortunately its not something that is easy to demo without giving people the keys to see all sorts of stuff. What i finally did was make a demo version with data from a demo ride.

I 3D Printed the enclosures for the electronics.

So I found out that my local DMV was open on Saturday. I decided I wanted to get the paperwork rolling before i got too much deeper. I got to the DMV and after about 2 hours walked away being told that they could do a VIN verification at the DMV if i brought the bike in. I looked at the paperwork and it said it needed to go to CHP because it was a Salvage but because it was restored i figured the paperwork was off and what the person told me was true. I rented a trailer and put the bike back together and loaded it up.

So I will start off with back in my heyday I would browse Craig's List and shoot out some low ball offers on things that look interesting. Sometimes it would work and id get a neat project to wrench on for awhile then id get board and sell it. Most of the time i made money and this is just what i did for a few years in high-school before i graduated and got a real job. over the years sometimes id pick up a random project here and there.

So i saw this on the forum that the Australian SuperSports have a different chain guard than any other part of the world.
So I got the part numbers and ordered the Australian parts.
Part Number Description

44711681B 44711681B - LOWER CHAIN SLIDING SHOE

So i already planned to do this when i changed my rear tire. The rear tire has to be off to do this.

So while working on removing the rear wheel I had a mishap with my SuperSport.
Its a really sad image. Lucky i was holding it and set it down fairly nicely.
This was my only casualty.
I knew it was going to snap off if i tried to bend it back but i had to try anyway it was not going to do me any good like that.
