Pretty stoked, as I'd been itching to get back to the Pagoda and re-shoot her (my 92 CB750 NH), with Targa's & Givi's installed.

How far is the Pagoda from you?  Great photo background.

Today I finished installing my new headlight bulb and socket, buttoning it up a bit, in the process (while also realizing I'm missing my headlights dust protector).



If you've ever experienced the sudden loss of your headlight's illumination on your 'late model' Nighthawk, you may want to click and scroll through here, down to "Reply #3," for my findings:

Today I installed an economical, black, aluminum kickstand enlarger with stainless steel hardware too, (as suggested by fellow NHF members).

Where did you find a kickstand foot enlarger to fit a Nighthawk?

I see you've just posted three times to the NHF boards so far, so welcome!

For this mod, I actually followed a couple other NHF member's lead, which you can read more about, in this NHF thread:

http://nighthawk-forums.com/index.php/topic,2558.msg28495.html#msg28495

On that note, I have yet to see a kickstand enlarger on-line that's truly made specifically for a NH, as-is. They all seem to take some sort of adapting, but I'm quite happy with mine and have no complaints, otherwise. I've been able to easily park her in grass, gravel, dirt, etc., without issue...and just plasti-dipped everything black, to blend it into the rest of the bike. I used all stainless hardware with  the aluminum plate, so rust is thankfully a non-issue, too. Hope this helps.

P.S. - Almost forgot; See also:  http://nighthawk-forums.com/index.php/topic,2557.msg27772.html#msg27772

Thanks! And yes, I'm new to the forum, Nighthawks, and motorcycles. I also have a gravel driveway ....

Okay, so she's filthy, but stoked for my first ride with my new-to-me, Corbin "Gunfighter and Lady" leather seat / saddle installed today!



(You can also see the knee grips, center stand, Targa's, Givi's, etc., here, too).

Thanks DesertDragon & oilfield_trash!

Took her out tonight, to enjoy my new-to-me Corbin and recently re-adjusted handlebars.

BEAUTIFUL ride, even as the rains rolled in. Worth it.

Every day is a gift.

Today my ($11.99 eBay) pair of 10mm black anodized CNC mirror riser extender adapters arrived, which was a quick, 10-15min. install. Pretty stoked to soon test'em out!

Every day is a gift.
