Hi All,

As you already know, Gary and I, will be doing some electrical up grades to Gary's new scooter. New horn, Headlight modulator, rear brake flasher, Power outlet in left glove box, Driving lights, and a bunch of other stuff.

My garage door faces to the East, right into the rising Sun. It's very hot out there during the morning. Ordered this 9'x9' canopy for around $30.00 from Wal-Mart and installed it on the front of the garage. These pictures were taken at about 10:00 AM and you can see the GREAT shade it provides.

Staying Cool in the Shade....

Hang a bedsheet across the front of that thing and you'll get a whole lot more shade.

Dennis... looks nice... It has been cooler here the last few days. Maybe the 100 F stuff is over.

Dan, come on up and hold an umbrella for us, or at least send your brother David. Smile Would love to have you.

As a little update for some of you that might be interested in what all this fuss is over. The last report from Trinity told me my kit should be ready by end of September or early October. This trip is to get some of the extra mods done before we get to the triking stage. Don't really care if it takes them a little longer to get kit done. I know it is getting close. I believe my wife is more excited now than I am. Heaven knows that I can't get her excited any more.Rolling Eyes When all this is over, it going to be so worth the wait. Life is good.

Dennis,

Looks like that will work great. Is it still hot there and hopefully you have a fan too.

Gary,

I hope and Dennis take plenty of pics as you do this. You may even want to ask if Trinity would like some special pictures too. You might get on their website.

Best of luck to both of you as you do this and you will be the "subject matter experts" on this when you complete it.

For what it's worth -- photos of Trinity's proprietary bits might not be real welcome on the Web from Trinity's point of view.

I for one would like to see all of the little bits and pieces that make up the final drive, brakes, etc. Glad that the project is on track.

Best of luck to both of you.

Jon... not sure of any proprietary details you are referring to. I guess I will check with BOB about that when we start the project. Thanks for the suggestion.As for the little pieces you mentioned, you are welcome to come see for yourself when the kit arrives. You can help read step one figure 1-a instructions. Dan, or his brother David may be there too. Laughing

Dennis,

You should play a practical joke on Gary and put both of the back tires on the front. Twisted Evil

Come on Jeff... I may be from Arkansas, but I am smart enough to know that NOBODY in their right mind would put TWO wheels on the FRONT of a scooter or motorcycle. Razz What a joke...

It was definitely a european country, but before a stunt like that they say the same thing all over the world, and in every language, that they say in Arkansas:
"Y'all hold my beer and watch this."

If you absolutely HAVE to have 4 wheels, I'd rather it be something like this:
