Haven't been around here much lately. Busy winter, work is a cluster blah blah blah. Decided to address a few glaring issues with my Jackal, for the most part it was successful. Most importantly, she came off the lift for a good 100 mile test, And she performed flawlessly.
New rear fender (after I had a mishap dismounting a lift last spring) in original color, thanks to a member here.
New Tailight cluster with LEDs
Front LED turn signals
Added a cheapo Voltage indicator/USB mount on the dash.
Seating position has changed, which i didn't immediately shine to, and that came as a surprise. But by the end of the ride, my body adjusted.
Perhaps the most interesting contribution came from someone most of you hear of every now and again, my buddy Austin who has apprenticed with our own Chuck, and is a talented kid who's not one to turn away from any challenge. He fashioned some standoffs for the front turn signals, that in my opinion came out great. Current iteration is not final, he's going to shave a MM here and there, but they are robust and blended nicely with the all aluminum micro LED's I found which also perform surprisingly well.
I've got bags and a screens etc, but it seems I'm regressing to where I'm appreciating this minimalist bike even more.
