Thumbs up disaster avoided!

Halloween night it was cold (for SoCal) and the Brutale was outside until late.....

next day, I wondered as I put my helmet on.....

got my fingernails in the groove and the lens popped right off....
the factory glue stuck perfectly to the glass, but not the plastic housing at all

cleaned it and used RTV Form-a-Gasket......

might change to DAP elastomeric caulk, I KNOW it sticks and its guaranteed for 50 years

Thumbs down glued?

the glue stuck perfectly to the glass.......and was a PITA to get off of it

NONE stuck to the housing

guaranteed, i know where it would have come off, the dip in the road at PHC and PV Blvd......why? i'm up on the pegs for it, the BMW GS bottoms out there
MV doesn't, but definitely launches your ass, if you're on the seat......car frames groove the concrete

favorite place to sucker Porsche drivers into keeping up with my '66 El Camino......they pancake motors on the ground in a shower of sparks and stop...
i just grind some more off the big real steel frame

Fun night, turned lots of heads and had tons of laughs! Hahaha, ill put some pics up soon. After too much to drink we parked the boats in the harbor and called it a night.
