  1. Sorry to be misleading with the title, but need some advice please. In May I'm traveling to Cebu Philippines for 2 weeks to visit a very dear old shipmate of mine who retired there with his incredible good wife (In which I introduced to him, another long story for another time). He has an incurable cancer and is not long for this plain. What I need to know is what is the best International travelers health Ins . that's reasonable affordable? I'm retired Navy and all I have is Tricare Prime. But since we don't have bases there anymore it won't cover me there. Also being a Government Mil
  2. Gentleman and Techs Plus all others who know your one or the other (LOL) 88 VR live in Northern Washington On Whidbey Island where it rains more often than not WHAT ARE YOUR TIRE RECOMMENDATIONS? Looking for load, (Run heavy on X-country once maybe twice or less a summer) and high mileage. Mostly commute 30 miles one way through S-curves and bridges. Western WA cool and wet, summers 70's-80's. Mid and East WA hot and dry, summers 90's-100's Thanks Gents Gene'o USN ret
  3. If you could get back to me one way the other would be great my e-mail is geneocaddy@hotmail or PM me here. I have a 88 VR It has Dunlap 404 now I have no ideal how many miles are on them. They came on the bike when I bought it. The rear tire is now down to cords and the front severely weather cracked. I was thinking about getting the Elite 3's however I live in Northern Washington State on Whidbey Island which means it rains more often than not and the tread design don't look good for rain and the S curves coming on and off the Island . But wanted the load and high mileage capability so I
  4. Does anyone have pros and cons on gel cells? I have a 88 VR I just bought a Blue Master TruGel MG50-N18L-A Batt so far it seam to do well. But I will follow you all advice about increasing batt cable and put a heaver relay also disassemble and clean the starter this winter. I would like to know thoughts on gel cells/
  5. HI Guys I was thinking about putting a CD changer in the left trunk on my 88 Royal. My question; 1) Which brand works the best bouncing around in the trunk? (even though it's secured to the trunk) 2) What cord to plug into the stereo, and does the stereo have an AUX for it? 3) And last, does the stereo control the changer or does it have a seperate control for the handle bars? Thanks Guys Gene'o P.S. And does anyone have one they would like to sell that still works good with the CD holder cartridges? But doesn't cost as much as new? thanks
  6. I see you have the twin firestick antena. was it hard to split he stock one from radio and cb?Or just ran seperate coax for each one?
  7. Howdy Shipmate What size is yours? I was going to get the GT25 with the vent. And how much were you thinking? the one on their web site with shipping is around $360 Gene'o
  8. Thanks Man The site has it and I think I found what I needed there. thanks See I told you, Yoall are smart, hahaha gene'o
  9. Ok all you smarter than me and I know theres awhole lot of you. I'm trying to locate a tall, wide, built in vent windshield out there. I've heard all you Royal Star riders brag about it. I've searched f4 custom and a couple of other places, even called a few dealers. No one carries or knows how to find one for my 88 Venture Royal. So HELP. What do you guys suggest? I like the ideal of moving that bubble so she dosn't get buffeted and I don't get her long hair wipping my face. Plus the vent to break up the bubble and give her a little more air flow. Or I'm I stuck with stock? Thanks Guys
  10. Has anybody ordered anything from leather up? What did you all think? Are the leathers good enough especialy at those prices?
  11. does the 88 royal have an aux port for a cd changer? Is it possiable to hook one up?
  12. Go to Bose web site look under marine. They have a set that look like they will fit and are water proof. I put a set of Bose in my 84 when I was in the Philippines and put the control box on the fork tree behind the faring. sounded good and servived the monsoons in both Philippines and Japan. The ones on Bose web site look like they'll do alot better and without the control box. I was thinking about putting them on the 88 front.
  13. Hay Guys I've searched e-bay and Criegs list and all the manufacture sites everyone recommended. I still can't find floor boards for my 88 royal 1st Gen MKII. So I need some help. Does anyone have a set for sale that will fit my scooter? I also went to the F4 site and also another can't remember name. They all stated they no longer carry the tall wide windshield with vent. So I'm up for any ideals you all may have. Let me know here or e-mail me please geneocaddy@hotmail.com Thanks every one Respectfully gene'o
  14. Will they fit my 88? and how much? does it include the shifter and brake rockers and linkage Thanks Gene'o geneocaddy@hotmail.com
  15. Are they still avaiable? How much will they fit my 88 mkII Royal thanks gene'o geneocaddy@hotmail.com
