Making it mine

New f6c guy here, stopped by to share some recent add-ons :)
Started by taking off all the info stickers and labels.
Installed a SteelMate tire pressure monitor system that's hard wired.
Installed a set of Oxford heated grips.
Installed the Honda boulevard screen.

Both the TPMS and grip heater systems are capable of warning about low battery or charging problems, so they act as another monitoring device.

My preferred luggage these days is a Nelson Rigg tailbag or various roll type dry bags tied onto the rear seat.

My plan for tires when needed is to go with the 90/10 adventures, such as come on the BMW GS1200 and similar heavy bikes using radials with 120/70-19 fronts.

Heh speak of the devil. We were just talking about SteelMate tire pressure monitor system yesterday. I see many benefits of that... also it's another gizmo... which I like :)
I went with the FOBO TPMS they work great and easy to setup and use.
How long do they work for before you need to change the battery in them?
I've had them on for 6 months and it still says full battery. You use an app on your smart phone to manage them. And it shows you the battery life in the app. And its just a little button battery you can buy them anywhere. So before I get on my bike in the morning or during a ride I pull my phone out and check my pressures. As your tires heat up during a ride it shows the temp and the pressure change. Update on specs.
