Installing A USB Charger On A Motorcycle

Spent the day doing a quick upgrade mod to the Lil Green Monster by adding a USB charger to it. The install of the USB charger is a simple plug and play that requires simple tools (screw driver and a set of Allen wrenches) to install.

USB Charger for a motorcycle

I picked up the USB charger that is specifically designed for motorcycles, from Amazon, for a little over $13. After a simple removal of a few panels and the seat, fishing the electrical wire through the frame, and cinching everything down with zip ties, this project was completed in less than an hour.

Now I’ll be able to charge my iPhone or keep my GoPro powered on long rides thanks to this USB motorcycle charger.

Happy Hump Day!

It’s Hump Day! Woot! It’s the middle of the work week and the weekend is almost here!  How is everyone’s week going so far?
This past Monday I spent the day napping and getting the much needed rest that my body was asking for from vacationing. Honestly if you can take a day to off to yourself before heading back to work, it is so worth it to both your body and psyche.

Asides from napping I did this:

I wrapped my Gerber Shard in paracord.

I know that doesn’t sound like a productive Monday but I also did some research on Monday as well as on Tuesday on: Kydex, Native American warbonnets, paracords, EL wire, and masks.
Why would I be doing research on those things and how do they relate?

I plan on making a warbonnet to wear for the upcoming Beyond Wonderland in September.

Concept sketches, plans, and details coming soon!
