  1. Great for race cars, a waste of money on a daily driver.
  2. I run a BF Goodrich T\A Radial 155\80 on the rear of my 02 RSV and a 130 commander 2 up front. After much trial and error I settled on 41 psi up front and 45 psi on the rear. Low speed handling and mountain twisty switchbacks are no problem. I have slid the forks up 3/4", replaced the fork springs with sonic straight rate springs with 15W fork oil. Increased head bearing torque by 10 pounds. All this combined , my bike now handles way better than the stock configuration.
  3. Wonderful song Puc . Knee mail sent for mom and you my friend.
  4. Scary tale there! Glad they were able to patch you up. I watched a riding buddy take out a rather large bird with his cheek at 60 mph! The bird exploded into a cloud of feathers and darn near knocked him out, he was able to get the bike stopped safely too.
  5. Congratulations Earl! You'll enjoy not having to live by the alarm clock.
  6. Good for you Chuck! Jeannie and I did the same about 8 weeks ago. Like you, we both feel better. @cowpuccowpuc great to see you posting ! Hope all is well with you and Tippy.
  7. Welcome back! Nice ride ya got there 👍. We love our Hannigan too.
  8. Love the look of those old classics. Have fun with the refresh.
  9. Sorry, we had almost 4" in just over 24 hours !
  10. I'm sitting on my deck drinking coffee and listening to the rain fall, 3" in the past 24 hours and more to come! No riding today 😢
  11. Praying for a positive outcome for you Don. I promise not to cause any trouble while you recoup.
  12. Gps stays in the trunk as backup, I now have my phone in a ram mount on the left side. I use waze for gps and Pandora.
  13. Nice ride you got there. I see you're in Ohio, keep an eye out for Freebirds maintenance day meet come springtime, it's a friendly get together in your home state, where you'll meet some good people, learn a few things about your bike and eat way more than you should!
  14. Sad news indeed. We'd ridden together a few times.
  15. Thanks to B2Dad I have a full set of heated gear, jacket, pants, gloves and socks. It's like riding in a toaster oven when set on Hi !
  16. Same here, got out for a ride this afternoon, perfect low 70s and still some color on the trees.
  17. End of the season, what is that? We may have a few weather related delays, but "end of riding season" nope, doesn't happen here.
  18. As always, Carl has sage advice. I tried as you suggested and that nap produce a nightmare, I awoke in a panic, my scoot in flames! Guess that touching those 2 wires together wasn't the best way to start the diagnosis! Lol Thanks Saddlebum, my bike is an '01 so it has the LCD dash. I'm hoping that like problems with the sound system I can cure this by just cleaning all the electrical connections from the speed sensor to the display. Videoarizona, I'll be looking at that also.
  19. Took a ride yesterday and my speedometer is going crazy, the indicator needle is fanning out and sweeping across the gauge face then back to normal, repeat, then the needle just disappears! If I shut the bike off and retry it goes back to normal for a short time. Where should I start troubleshooting?
  20. That would kill me here with this HARD red clay, you darn near need a jackhammer to get through it!
  21. Had plans to be at the 21 meet but we ended up in michigan instead 🙁 I'm hoping to be at the 22 meet. On a different subject, we're going to run the dragon sometime next week and a few other roads yet to be determined.
  22. Better poison ivy than becoming bear bait! Feel better soon.
  23. For those of you that remember Angel (DarkAngel) and Lori Delarosa, they could use our help and prayers right now as they battle Covid. They are both hospitalized and stand to loose their business if recovery takes too long. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10221152862556747&id=1400313572
  24. This place attracts the misfits from around the world so you'll fit right in for round two. Welcome back to the looney bin!
  25. I too have missed all the get-togethers and look forward to things restarting. WNY and MD are favorites of mine. Vogel was on my list for this year but life got in the way this year.
