    Old Funny Story - Revisited

    Original Title: Who are you, and what did you do with my wife? Before I start the story, please understand that my wife is a wonderful person :thumbup: and has been surprisingly supportive ever since I gingerly mentioned that I was, you know, maybe thinking of buying a bike. (I was riding when...

    Shoop's New Ride

    2020 MT-09 with absolutely no mods. And it's BLUE!!! My FZ6 now belongs to a neighbor who promised that he'll take care of her. I'll be watching him. It's a seller's market. MT-09's are rare and disappear quickly. The seller managed to look happy for this pic. And he should because he got to...

    Alert BUMP: Bell Star MIPS DLX Price Drop $160

    Bell Star MIPS DLX, white, XL, $260 $160 plus shipping. I bought this helmet last fall shortly after Bell brought out the MIPS in a street helmet. Besides MIPS, it comes with a Transitions shield - which is awesome. I LOVE the design and quality of this helmet. But I'm selling it because it...

    ST2 Self-Cancelling Indicators Has anybody on the forum installed this self-cancelling indicator system? The appeal is that this device will turn off the indicators after you make a turn or lane change, or 15-20 seconds if you don’t turn. So no more constant blinking if you...

    MSF Range Bikes

    I have a question for MSF coaches. (You OH guys are all former MSF now, right Blah) What newer program bikes do you see on your ranges? At PKB in West Virginia we have mostly Honda Nighthawks with a few Rebels, two CRF230's, Suzuki GV's and a single Yamaha Star 250. Good bikes but they're...

    I bought a 2016 FJR1300A. Great bike, great price for the new gen with only 31,000 miles. :thumbup: No - I have not named her "unicorn." Blah I titled the post "unicorn" because it is very rare to find a 2016 for sale and even more rare to find one for a price much lower than the...

    Cosmetics - Sticker Removal

    Itty bitty trivial issue.. This past weekend I decided to remove the warning sticker about "read the manual and wear a helmet" that was mounted on the gas tank just forward of the fill cap. It was getting yellowed from spills. So I took a razor blade to it then used mineral spirits to rub...

    This evening I decided to try to add a Signature. It wasn't easy to find the place to do this. There might be easier paths, but I eventually found it several layers deep into the FAQs. Yep, I resorted to reading the directions. But here's a direct path...

    Can You Remove a Dislike or Like?

    I really like the feature to click on Like or Thanks. I've never used the Dislike button, except one time by mistake - fat fingers on the touch screen. :Flash: So is there a way to remove one of these likes or dislikes? I've tried re-clicking, but the button disappears. Thanks!

    R6 Forks O! M! G!

    I installed a set of R6s forks today, and WOW! What a difference! Let me say that again with emphasis. WOW!!! Why the bell didn't I do this sooner? A few weeks ago my neighbor, who takes his Honda ST1100 through the twisties like a sport bike, swapped bikes with me for a bit. His...

    Wonderful Mountain Ride on US-33

    Yesterday I managed to take care of a troublesome errand and to visit a road that I've been meaning to try out. I live in Parkersburg WV near the western end of the state and needed to get funds to a Bank of America and the closest one was Harrisonburg, VA. This was for my daughter's rent in San...

    NY106 in Harriman State Park

    I just got back from a trip to NY to visit with the in-laws. This year, first time ever, I trailered my motorcycle for our once-a-year visit and explored the surrounding area. We were there from Monday evening through Saturday at noon. Except for Friday I only rode in the early AM so my dear...

    I Need a Snowmobile Conversion Kit

    I like winter, honest. But 14 inches on March 5th is too much. At least it is now that I have returned to motorcycling. All of this should be melted by the middle of next week as the temperatures go from the 40's to the 50's. But I'm going to be in San Diego, without a bike! I'm just...
