    Tomorrow I need to throw some Seafoam into the 89 and run her for a while. She'll be sitting/resting while I'm gone...Then clean the front end of the RSV...darn bugs really like those lowers!
    What Cooling vest is that? Also anyone got recomendations for shoes or High tops I just bought the ones I have 2 weeks ago and they are falling apart. Gotta love Walmart Fallapart....

    I polished it , to the tune that you can now shave yourself in the paint's reflection. Then...went for a ride!

    Just rub it in... I am glad they don't do test rides here. I already wanted one but Dang I would have been really heart broken. So yeah just keep rubbing it in but guess what!! Mine is better then yours mine gets 100+/- mpg. My first gen is faster!!

    Never ride faster then your angel can fly. I am as free as the wind on my face.

    I've had a pair of Shift Kickers for about 6 years and they have proven very durable and comfortable.

    ETA: It looks like these aren't available anymore. It's a shame as they are really nice boots.

    I need something I can do everything in, the shoes I used to get lets just say lasted a couple years now lucky to get them to last 6 months. I don't want to knock a good brand of shoes but quality has gone downhill in my opinion. So trying different brands but very disappointed in clothes in general.

    In that case, buy Red Wing Boots and add a lace keeper. They may even have a riding boot with lace keepers already. Best quality work boots you can buy, IMHO.

    ETA: Here you go, One lace up shorty and a more traditional "Biker" boot from Red Wing.

    If my son would talk to me I'd find out what boots he fell in love with that I had to send to Afghanistan for him. Course he lived in those suckers. They weren't very budget-conscious however but were I soft leather steel toe that far outshined the military issue boots. He hasn't spoken to me for 2 years but I keep trying. Prayers would be appreciated. Nothing else is going to intervene afraid

    I'll third the Redwings!
    I bought a pair when I worked in the Middle East in the '70's.. Finally got rid of them a few years back. Long after they saved me from severing a few toes when I got a bit energetic with a garden spade! Course, don't know if the quality is the same now, but worth a try.

    My last pair is three years now and just as good of quality as the other four pair I have.

    I picked up my bike from the dealer this morning between rain showers. They did a great job and it runs very good.

    I wear Rocky Para boots #2090 they are the most comfortable boot that I have worn yet. I have had two pair in 13 years. They are not insulated or water proof but my feet has stayed dry and worm in cold weather riding and not hot in summer.

    Well I had the fairing off over the winter and did some repairs on it. While I was in there I separated all of the electric plugs, including the plugs to the CMU and cleaned and treated with White Lithium Grease. Also I lubed the throttle cable while I was in there. While I had the plastic off I did the Acetone fix on most of it, but of course after 20 years of sagging in a certain direction some of that plastic decided it wasn't too into the idea of being solidly mounted back up. So I'm fixing that today. Click image for larger version.
