  1. Sonny Ruttan and I had a run in about the same time as he set up his facebook page as "an Alternative to VR" and he got all bent out of shape that I would even mention VR on "his" page. I got booted then but somehow I got invited back. ??? I don't interact on the page i just read posts now.
  2. I bought my Tank Bib from Talisman Leather in London Ontario. I liked them as they have a choice of with or without the braid or the studs. https://talismanleatherlondon.com
  3. Nice!! Love the colours!
  4. Buy a few from the online and then go to your stealer for a refund. Lol
  5. It’s not completely a done deal yet but it looks like I’ll be picking up a 2004 RSV midnight. It’s a local bike with about 70000kms or a bit over 40000 miles. It’s got most of the chrome accessories available and new metzeler tires. I loved my 2013 HD Road Glide Ultra but it will be great to be back It’s a done deal!!! I picked her up about 11this morning and around town most of the day. There were some carb issues at first with a bit of leakage out of one tube and the engine wouldn’t idle and ran rough. The owner told me the bike had sat for about 18 months so I wasn’t surprised. I added half can of sea foam and within a couple of blocks it was starting to run better and by the end of the day ir was running smoothly and lots of acceleration. Happy to be back on a Venture!
  6. VentureWest was a get together in the Morro Bay/SLO area about 10 years ago. I think a great time was had by all. Brian
  7. I still remember the huge meals and breakfast at Margies Diner in SLO at Venturewest with everyone. Amazing food and amazing people. I think it would have been a great ride that year to, if the Venture would have stayed together.
  8. SUddenly I dont feel quite as "old" 4562 is my number
  9. Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best in the New year!!! I havnt been on here much in the last while but that may change soon as I have sold my Road Glide and am will be looking for another bike in time for next spring. See you all on the road!!!
  10. thats kinda what I was thinking, but i thought i would get a couple of opinions.
  11. I am trying to work out logistics to make this maintenanace day weekend happen. I am about 50/50 if I can make it happen. I am thinking that I might be best going on the north side of the lake when I am headed there instead of going south and around the Chicago area. Does anyone have any suggestions for the best route coming from Western Canada? Brian
  12. I have the Sena SMH10's that we use with helmets and like them a lot, but sometimes found the wind noise got a bit too much in VOX mode at speed. So we cut the finger off a thin leather glove, punched one hole in it and slid it over the foam ball over the mic, ensuring the hole is facing your mouth. It cut down on wind noise a lot and is an easy fix. Brian
  13. My condolences to you , Nacy and your families at this sad time.
  14. We replace quite a few screens at work and in most cases its pretty easy. Heres a link to the guys that give us the best service and the best price whenever we check. good luck with your fix up! http://www.screencountry.com Brian
  15. Would that be the bike that never has enough gas in it? Get well soon Russ!!!!!! Or ill give Rocket your phone number!!!!!
  16. yeah,....i have had that happen to me. go to look up something and come back to a blank text box is a pain in the butt..... Brian
  17. Ill be there, Kruisn the koots is going to be a blast. Ive been riding a 2013 HD Road Glide since March, and have decided not to keep 2 bikes around so the RSV got the short straw. Brian
  18. I sold my 2003 RSV a couple of days ago to a real nice guy that used to be in here when he owned a G1 Venture, so I think youll see him back. I may have sold the Venture but youre not getting rid of me that easily, Ill still hang around and poke the odd proverbial bear from time to time. I love this place! Brian
  19. MIne too, i just renewed mine todat as well...
  20. I use Glympse when on a long ride in a large group. We can keep track of one another if we get separated,.
  21. I just bought a replacement on ebay a couple of weeks ago for 60 bucks...... reconditioned... there is always some 765t on there , but it might take a little waiting to get one at a steal price, but be patient, they are on there... Brian
  22. Ive always gotten good service from them, and the prices were almost always the lowest or close to the lowest. (I still have to shop around just in case ) Boats.net was the other best price site ive dealt with and gotten good service from Brian
