  1. Beast idea I’ve seen so far. Looks like it could be blended in and painted seamless. How is it holding up over the years and miles?
  2. What do the stock speakers from a Mk2 look like? Mine sound ok but not great and I’ve been tempted to put a kicker system in but it’s not a priority. Not sure if mine have already been replaced. They have a silver inner cone.
  3. I second this. I know you say you’d rather be riding than wrenching but this is all general maintenance.
  4. I have a 30” inseam 😩 I’ve been tip toe champing and scampering since Y2K. The question I’d ask is if the rear brake stuck before the new tires. The ad says new tires less than 1k miles. Reason being is there is a spacer on the rear axel that is all to commonly put back incorrectly. (I personally know this) also just for you to note while speaking of brakes, the bike has linked brakes from factory.
  5. Looks a lot like my Corbin but some subtle differences in stitching and inverse color. I have the venture line backrest. That bolstered backrest looks tits!
  6. @cowpuchas a good point on looking for critter nests. I had a few mice make a home out of my air filter one winter. By the grace of god for some reason I looked before sucking those guys into my engine.
  7. All this info is great! Thanks guys. Another thought I’ve had recently and this is for everyday carry as well is a compact umbrella or two. Aside from the obvious rain protection I’m thinking more for use against the sun, especially doing a roadside repair. It’s difficult to do anything with the desert sun beating down on you let alone see through the sweat.
  8. I have a similar jump pack that I picked up at Costco a few years ago. It’s successfully turned over my Expedition in freezing conditions and actually saved mine and the kids ass when stuck in the left turn lane of a seven lane interchange on an overpass over I15.
  9. You guys run the cheap shit too right? I’ll pay the extra buck for ethanol free if I have the opportunity. (Too many issues with my F150 and Duc regarding ethanol attacks 😬) I’m pretty positive the manual said 86 min.
  10. What defines good rain gear? I worked in a ski shop for many years so I’m very familiar with Gor-Tex and other proprietary name outerwear. The Key Three; windproof, waterproof, breathable. But I don’t know what to look for from a motorcycle standpoint. First thing that comes to mind is how packable it can be.
  11. My goal is to keep the doors shut. I have a heater for winter but also don’t want my shop kitty getting out. Even when the weather is nice with the doors open it’d be nice to have some extra help getting the exhaust outside. Also our master is above the garage so the wife really notices.
  12. That’s too obvious of a method ha! KISS at its finest. Thanx.
