  1. I live on a small rural road that was chip sealed this summer. I hate this friggen road!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hopefully this winter the plows will plow all the loose crap off.
  2. Can't even imagine the amount of work involved in the switch over to say nothing of maintaining the site. Thanks for all that you do. Hope you all had a great vacation! and Squidly go to go? How great is that? 🤪
  3. I kinda wondered how many days it would take you to get her back up. It looks good, and thanks for all of your hard work, Now enjoy that houseboat!
  4. I've been thinking of how to say this, and there is no easy way: Dale committed suicide His wife called to tell me and asked me to tell you all. A number of years ago he came down with autoimmune Encephalitis and was lucky to live through that but it took a major part of his brain. He mostly could remember things through pictures, but mostly he kept that to himself and if you didn't know, you'd never guess. He was never the same after. Loosing his memory of life in general played a major part in this. I was looking forward to seeing him at he crud run next week. Can't believe I won
  5. A number of folks here that ran a nexan had that same issue including me. So with a suggestion at the time to run 45psi, that is what I ran and it took care of that issue, so like Holy, somewhere between 45 and 50 is what I'd try.
  6. A question is not a question if you know the answer too
  7. I have a2001 ram 2500 and a number of years ago I was thinking the same thing. After talking with lots of people, I put a 2" leveling kit on which raises the front and it is now level. Not sure that will solve your problem with a 5th wheel. I assume you know about drop hitches?
  8. Don's right about it being off about 5mph and the speeohealer will take care of that. I have an 05 RSTD and installed one years ago. As far as a jumpy needle, you realize that is a digital needle right? So probably check connections. Electrical is not my thing so, good luck. By the way there is another speedo correction device: Speedo DRD. Check it out. I have on another bike and they both do the same thing.
  9. Hey Gary, Good to see you back, great looking bike. I'll stop by next time I'm in town
  10. I put the Shinko's on the other day and the difference is amazing! I also added a bit/10# of air to the shock. It rides/corners like a MC again.
  11. If I were putting another CT on, I'd put the Nexon on. BUT---I put Ct's on because I was using the RSTD for traveling, and now I use my Vstrom for that. So, I'm putting a set of Shinko 777 WWW on. Seems that the Nexon liked corners better as I remember.
  12. vzuden, I put lowering links on years ago also run with no air in the shock. I did jump it up to 50psi when I traveled with this bike though. The BFG CT also made it a bit lower, so putting a MC tire back on will raise it a bit. I like it LOW!
  13. I'm going to put a set on new tires on the RSTD and I'm thinking of going back to the original size for the front- 150/80-16. I've been using the 130/90 for years. What have you found to be the difference in the two sizes? I seem to remember the 150 turning slower, but not sure I care about that anymore. I'm also ditching the CT and putting a stock on the rear. I'll be going with Shinko WWW 777's
  14. Very cool, wonder how many miles are on it.
