  1. MonsterBiker I am in touch with engineering at fobo. They would like to escalate the battery issue to their quality team to find out how you got dead batteries and make sure it doesn’t happen to anyone else. can you PM me the serial number(s) on the box? VentureFar...
  2. Yup that is what it is for. there is a link in the article for a discount that is open ended. so remember that if you decided to rent. VentureFar.
  3. Hi all. I needed a adventure bike to test a bunch of adventure gear and I rented a bike from Twisted Road. This was new to me and hopefully you will see the value too. our brother @cowpuc is a wrench’s wrench so he is never down and can fabricate a motorcycle out of a pile of spare parts, but for the rest of us this is a service we might want to remember. hope you enjoy. comments always welcome. https://ultimatemotorcycling.com/2020/10/09/twisted-road-review-peer-to-peer-motorcycle-rental/ VentureFar...
  4. Yup. That’s the one I got for my wife. I reviewed it. Good helmet but I prefer modular personally. VentureFar...
  5. excellent points. I saw 9# gain on the rear too. I had to raise the maximum pressure warning. Having communicated directly with engineers at FOBO I am 100 % confident in the pressure readings. Pope3567 watch for my pm. VentureFar...
  6. Thanks for the kind words. Do you mean the modular piece goes over the top of the helmet to the back so that you are riding with a 3/4? I don't' ever ride with my face exposed to asphalt except when taking a drink of water or a bite of a sandwich. These are my three modular reviews. Remember each review is stand alone and not a comparison. But between us girls I prefer the HJC Rpha 90 for comfort, air flow and how quite it is. just don't buy a matte finish, they are hard to keep clean. fyi all are intermediate oval and you should definitely try them on before buying. I only use modular w
  7. Hello all, I just did a ride review on a Klim F3 off-road helmet that is Dot approved for on-road and it was fine at freeway speeds. I know that our friend @cowpuc doesn't need no stinkin helmet and has kept himself and his lovely wife Tip safe for a million miles. But for the rest of us, wear a stinkin helmet! Here is my review of this quality helmet. You will notice in the photo I am on a BMW 1200 GS and wearing a whole bunch more Klim Gear. The bike is a Twisted Road rental ( review to follow) and the Klim Jacket and pants will get their own review shortly. Thanks for reading - but onl
  8. Sage advise: working thru the bucketlist is almost as much fun as spending all those years developing the list itself !! my new motto! thanks VentureFar...
  9. You are looking great my Brother. What is up with the black Corvette? Hi to Tip and stay out of trouble! VentureFar...
  10. I run the Sylvia is ultra bright in my 07 Rsv. Worthless upgrade in my opinion. Just a whiter light than the yellowish stock bulb. I when I want to see I turn in my flamethrower 25 watt led spots mounted off my mirror stalks. Can play tennis by them in a moonless night. Can see to stop at 70mph. Turn them off for an oncoming car and the sylvanias do nothing VentureFar... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I have a lot of rain gear and the name for what you are looking for is Overpants. Since you are a cyclegear customer see this link. https://www.cyclegear.com/gear/spidi-superstorm-h2out-pants Unless you are 14 years old, when standing beside your bike and the rain is coming down, you need raingear pants that zip up to the waist to get in without falling over. IMPORTANT - bring an umbrella. That way you can take your time, Help your bride into her pants first like an old school gentlemen and then get into your own. Also, I have found several times in route and around Sturgis that a downp
  12. Excellent. I love mine and everyone else that has them does too! VentureFar...
  13. I put the Tom tom back in the box and on the shelf. The zumo xt is bigger, brighter, more functional and easier to use. I was told by the magazine early on that reviews are of the product only unless the review is a comparison review. Like all touring bikes or all adventure bikes under 600 Cc. Etc. VentureFar...
  14. FYI gators slice the droplets because they are so porous. Valve masks send your own breath straight out into the air. The whole purpose of masks is to protect the OTHER GUY from you. just saying but not trying to start a mask war. Just curious how many people got Covid from sturgis. VentureFar...
  15. Yes thanks. The be alert to evacuate line is two miles away but a long two miles of dense population and lots of fire hydrants. There is zero wind. So we are ok. Thanks for inquiring. VentureFar... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
