Ari's winter farkle project pics, parts 256 - 258

I saw some posts people wondering what to do in a long winter when riding is impossible.

Well here are some hints for the next winter in case it might be too late to start now...

Ari,
You are without a doubt the KING of farkle!!! Nice job. Do you want to "borrow" my GT next winter?

So will you be selling a mould for that dash?
I have just put the BMR on mine and love the extra space, but boy is it boxy compared to what you just did!

Hi Ari,

I'm not sure but I think you made a mistake. The last picture that you claim to be your dashboard might be the dashboard for the Space Shuttle!

Awesome. Very informative and a highly likely consideration to persue next winter. It's certainly better than finding out how warm it is in Bum F**k, AZ during the cold spells where we have other important things to do.

Thanks. You're truely an inspiration.

Ari, stop - you're killing me! I'm afraid to change the engine oil in the darn thing, and you reinvent it!

Unbelievable. Nice job, as usual. When you are all done will you be able to recognize it as a K1200LT?

Poor map selection I guess (N41 50.375 W088 11.301). Have a great riding summer.

I do agree. VERY COOL Ari.

Wow Ari! That's all I can say...are you planning a seminar? Great projects, and you are the King! We should all plan a trip to ride to your area and learn from the master.

Excellent as usual.. It amazes me what you can get done with only missing 2 riding days (that's how many non-riding days we've had this winter....)

After what I've seen Ari do to his LT in the past I'm not suprised.

Very much impressed by the ingenious innovations, but not surprised.

Did y'all catch his ignition key, cool.

Ari--you are a 'Farkle deluxe'--have you had to attach an extra alternator yet?

Hans, and all you others as well,

thanks for the kind words! Well, we all have our oddnesses and obsessions. I just happen to like to finger with my bike. And as I have already mentioned in the picture comments I owe thanks to Hans for arranging me the dash cover from his wrecked bike. The small dents and cracks were well hidden in this project!

As for the ignition key...there is nothing special to that. I just have two keys zip-tied to each other. The other key is for the Xena disc lock
http://www.xenasecurity.com/home/current/lock/

The idea has been stolen from this site as I remeber somebody using the same method for fastening the alarm fob to the ignition key. I would not like to do that over here as we get rain pretty often and I am not convinced on the waterproofing of the alarm remote control...



All the best
