  1. Margaret Myres, Bobbie Powel, Ramona, Aussie Annie, Sweet Nothing? They and some others used to be active on the site but see them more on face book now.
  2. Going to give the Shinkos a try. $360 + tax CDN and free shipping. The Dunlop E4 has been discontiued in the 150/90-15 rear.
  3. Thanks Ben, I have sent them an e-mail to inquire. Their web site is not very helpful. I've been dealing with Fort Nine out of Quebec but they are out of stock on E3s and the E4 Fornts. They don't even list my rear tire size even though it is listed on the Dunlop web site. Tempted to give the Metzlers a try as they are not that much more then the Shinkos that others have recommended. With the new lock down rules, it doesn't look like we'll be riding much anyway.
  4. I've been shopping for tires and the otions seem to be limited for the RSV. Maybe due to Covid, I don't know. I have a set of Dunlop Elite 3s now and really like them but they seem to be replaced by Elite 4s now. Checking on availability, they are scarce. Out of stock everywhere. So I found the Metzeler ME888 and I can get them here in Canada too. The old Metzeler ME880 got a bad rap among Venture Riders a number of years ago so I've stayed away from them over the years. Wondering if anyone has experience with the new ME888. Reviews on line seem to be pretty good. Or if anyone has something else they can recommend, I would like to hear about it.
  5. Jay, I had the same error code on my '03 when it was still under warranty and the dealer never did get it to work again. Kept swapping it out with reconditioned units but always the same error. When my '06 started doing it, out of warranty, I gave up on the CB. I only ever used it when riding with the VR's and that doesn't happen as much any more.
  6. Scott, I have been to both Mecum and Barrett Jackson actions, but only as a spectator. You can get up close and personal with the cars before the auction and I expect that if you can find the owner he would answer any questions you have and let you hear it run etc. Not sure about a road test and I have never seen any lifts available for use on site. FYI, I paid to have an inspection/appraisal done on a car I was thinking about buying in Dallas TX. It cost less then an airplane ride and was the best $400 I ever spent. I didn't buy the car.
  7. Suggest you look into a LED direct replacement. I did mine a couple of years ago and it is awesome. Sorry I don't have any other info for you.
  8. Make sure that all of the shut off switches are not sticking. Clutch, front/rear brake and cancel switch on the right handle bar. Make sure clutch and front brake levers are returning completely when released.
  9. We have to watch out for Donkey's in Texas
  10. I like to keep a set of new brake pads on hand and I've been shopping on Ebay. Wondering if anyone has experience with the cheaper brands they offer on there? I usually buy EBC pads and generally have had good service from them. I see a pair of NO Name rear sintered HH pads for $13.99 There's a complete set, No name, front and back, of semi metallic for $14.60 and a rear set of EBC for $31.02. Any words of wisdom? Anyone used the cheap ones? Buy cheap, get cheap?
  11. 65 years old, smoker,........ever heard of heart attack or stroke? Get your butt to a doctor man. Should have done it instead of going home to lay down. That's all I got.
  12. Very sorry for your loss. My condolences to Eileen and Don and family. May your grief be short and the good memories bring a smile.
  13. I hear they're always looking for new crash test dummies!
