  1. Ever hear of Bondit, looks promising for plastic repairs that we are always needing. https://www.touchofmodern.com/sales/bondic-6d378346-198d-4326-880b-45ebe26c3242/bondic-super-bundle
  2. Bazooka MC-YAM-AMK Amplifier Kit is available from crutchfield and i wonder if anyone here has used this product? i like the idea that it will plug into the system without cutting any wires, however it is a bit $$$$$ pricey$$$ and looking for any info or product reviews thanx mike.
  3. Anyone know of a way to get the residue from stick on tire weights off? I found a web site for professional detailers and a lot of them are detailing motorcycles also and when I posed this questions most said to use 3M general purpose adhesive cleaner. Anyone used this? I don't believe this product will do the job.
  4. I have had my Frogg Toggs for I believe aprox. three years now. For the most part I love the product and have rode my motorcycle through some pretty severe thunder storms. However I do have one beef. That is the zipper. Every now and again for what appears to be no reason at all, the zipper will pull apart in the middle. So on March 27, 2012 at 1:00 AM I decided to write them , and sent an E-mail to, marketing@froggtoggs.com More so for the purpose of feed back then complaining since the product only has a one year warranty and I wasn't expecting much. I was suprised when, at 9:00 AM the same day I recieved the following reply from Kevin Gentle. I sent them the requested info and this morning, true to their word, via UPS I recieved my new jacket, with the new heavier duty zipper, and they even covered the shipping. It is a real pleasure in this day and age to deal with a company with integrity and who have enough pride in there product to stand behind it dispite the limitations of the warranty. For this I say say thank you Kevin and the Frogg Togg company.
  5. Better Half would like armrests for long vacations. Anybody have armrests on your RSTD? Any suggestions. I have seen a product online called Love Handles. Anybody know have this product? Thanks
  6. It must be nice to have a product to sell and anticipate a problem and be able to raise a price 30 % without proof of a problem to come.
  7. Bike related of course My first would have to be my bike. Second my $12 + bucks Which will be due again pretty soon. Third would have to be my Carbon One lift adapter. Great product Larry and a great investment that will more than pay for itself in savings by allowing me to do more of my own work.
  8. What do you recommend to Balance and Seal Tires? I'm looking for 1 product that will do both. Thanks.
  9. I bought a Steerite modified triple tree for my 99 RSV from Side Effects www.sidecars.ca Why did I choose this company? Customer service and a great product! Father/son team of Peter and Brock Smith are fantastic. Every email and phone call has been promptly and thoroughly answered, and they also gave me added information to help with the sidecar set-up. They even offered to call and talk me through the alignment process. The mechanic who did the work for me also stated that they were very helpful when he called. They had the triple trees in stock. You just send back the old one when you have the new installed. To say this has made a difference in steering my rig is an understatement. They tell you it's like adding power steering, and it is amazing. About 175 miles last Sunday throught twisty country roads and it was great! I know there aren't many folks here with sidecar rigs, but they also do work for trikes, too. (and if we aren't allowed to endorse a product, moderator, please delete )
  10. I've been using Caswells Epoxy Sealer on several fuel tanks since I did my '84 tank a few years ago. I'm happy with the results and the epoxy does an excellent job of bonding to the interior of the tank rusted or not. It's tough stuff. http://www.caswellplating.com/restoration-aids/epoxy-gas-tank-sealer.html I just got an updates from Caswells on a new product, another epoxy sealer, but with a new feature. They have added a red color to the product so you can see the coverage on the inside of the tank, (for what you can see without an inspection camera). It's the same quality product from the original kit so I wouldn't be afraid to use it for any major repair. http://www.caswellplating.com/restoration-aids/epoxy-gas-tank-sealer/dragons-blood-gas-tank-sealer.html?utm_source=MailingList&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=May2012 So it's worth a look if you're in the market for a tank sealer. Mike
  11. How does this stack up against the air horns?? Has anyone heard of or seen this product before?? [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDeH2v6TSAA&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL]Banshee Horn - Warning System for Motorcycles, Cars and Boats - YouTube[/ame]
  12. I saw an interesting product on www.woot.com this morning. If you are not familiar with woot, they sell one product a day for really good prices - generally refurbs and/or overstocks. $5 shipping for anything. I am not associated with woot in any way, just buy things from them periodically. Today, they have a solar battery charger. The description claims it to be a standard charger with float charging technology. Appears to be a 'battery tender' type product that runs on sunlight. Claims to work with gel type batteries also. I thought this might be nice for some folks who store their bikes in sheds without electricity. It is too large to be a travel charger (over 3 feet long). $100 + $5 shipping. If interested, just go to the website and it is on the opening page. RR
  13. Anyone ever used this product ? If so, how is it?
  14. New on the shelf at my local Wal-Mart, right next to the Seafoam, is what looks like a new product from STP. Even the can is a Seafoam knock-off! The verbiage on the can reads just like Seafoam, too. Anyone see this yet? It may have been out for awhile, but I just noticed it last week. It was on sale for about $1.50 less than SF, so I picked up a few cans to try out. I guess it supports the adage "if you can't beat em, join em"!
  15. Has anyone tried this product? Its a tire sealant and balancer. http://www.ride-on.com/
  16. I purchased a lift adapter with legs from Carbon-One nearly two months ago. Yesterday was the first time I got to use my new toy, and it sure works well! Lifting the bike has never been easier or safer. The lift adapter is light-years ahead of using wooden blocks or other cobbled-up spacers. The legs turn a great product into a fabulous product. The lift adapter with the legs attached, make for an extremely stable work platform. Tire changes and other maintenance are now much easier and safer.
  17. I just found this product called Q-Bond, it repairs just about anything. I glued two pieces of abs at 90 degrees and within 15 seconds I could not pull them apart. If you google the product they show repairs to gaskets, plastics, abs, wood, etc. It can also be built up like a weld, it would be great for all of the plastic repairs on your bike. It is extremely strong and very easy to use. Just thought I would pass on.
  18. When I got my RSV the previous owner had superglued the windshield chrome strip because he had broken off the end mounting tab that the screw goes thru. I poked around and ran across the Plastex kit. This is the first time I have ever used a glue type product and not made a mess. No glue on the fingers...no glue on the table...no glue on the stuff I wasn't trying to glue. I have no doubt that the tab is stronger than it was originally. The price for that part is around 140 bucks... the Plastex was 21 after shipping. I have enough left over to do this repair 100 times. Great product that works!! Frank
  19. OK...these may seem like simple little insignificant things to carry on a long distance trip, but I can tell you that I have used BOTH and they are invaluable! The first is (and don't laugh) Bike Condoms. What are Bike Condoms? They are small compact individually packaged DISPOSABLE motorcycle covers. The are packed (and I mean REALLY PACKED) into a small 5x8x2 soft pouch that is resealable (in case you want to reuse the cover). They work very well and they are for all practical purposes very inexpensive...especially if you buy in bulk. The material is a vinyl type plastic with some stretch and elastic all the way around the edges. THEY FIT ALMOST ANY BIKE (and yes they do fit the Venture). The cost of each package is $9.99. But you can buy 5 packages at $7.99 and 10 packages at 6.99. Most of us probably have bike covers, but the unique things about this one is first, it is disposable so if you do tear it...you haven't spent that much, but more importantly, packing them for a long trip is where this product shines. The pouch is only 5x8" and slim enough to fit ANYWHERE. I have been giving these away as prizes at my biker website parties and everyone has provided positive feedback. Here is the link: http://www.bikecondoms.com/index.php/bikecondoms-store/details/20/6/original-bikecondom/the-original-bikecondom ******************************************************************* My next little product to talk about may not be able to be used by everyone unless you have a clearview or F4 Customs shield, for those people this is also a MUST PACK item for your long trips. Most of you have probably heard of this one. Rain*X Towlettes. They come in a small individual packet (and only .99 cents at autozone), and do a great job of cleaning the windshield and also coating with Rain*X at the same time. I carry a zip lock bag and reuse those too...they work extremely well. Too many times I have stopped at a gas station only to find out they don't have any water OR any towels. This takes care of that problem completely!! Here is a link for that product (or you can get it almost any car store). [ame=http://www.amazon.com/Rain-X-RAIN-X-TOWELETTE/dp/B000BPSVVE]Amazon.com: RAIN-X TOWELETTE: Automotive@@AMEPARAM@@http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/21y4rZdqvVL.@@AMEPARAM@@21y4rZdqvVL[/ame] Just thought I would share a couple of things I use in my packing when going on long trips. HOW ABOUT YOU...what is something useful that YOU carry that others might not know about.
  20. Some of our previous sponsors that have been providing their product have stepped up again this year. So far the best door prize will be from Morgan Carb-Tune. I just received an email from Sean Morgan saying they will be supplying us with one of their products again. Protectall will also be providing some of their great product, still awaiting replies from others........... If anyone has something they would like to donate or know of someone who would donate it would be greatly appreciated........ I will be posting a poll before the weekend about what the members would like to see for door prizes.......
  21. A couple of weeks ago I posted that I had started a tank bra for the Millennium. Finally finished the darn thing. I know that several on here do this kind of work and do much more detail than I've done here, but I'll tell you what. Leather work is not as easy as it seems like it would be. I'm happy with the result. Anyway, see photo for the finished product.
  22. Sorry, not a scoot but... We've come to the realization that our '96 Dakota just WILL NOT take us to the end of the road (that being into our "twilite" years ... appx 15 yrs from now) so we have a decision to make ... we need to replace it with a new(er) truck. Yes, it has to be a truck. We're thinking a 2008 or 2009 model year. Has to be an extended cab, has to have V8 power, automatic trans. We're looking for some guidance on what ya'll feel would be the most reliable truck out there at the most affordable price. Don't want a 4x4 and don't need anything bigger than a heavy half (1500). To give some of my preferences ... firstly I like Dodge product, then GMC. Never been a Found On Road Dead person but hey, what do I know about these newer ones?? Don't like Nissan but Toyota ain't bad .... Mazda maybe? (but that's just a Ford in disguise isn't it?) ... Really don't care for the looks of the Chev Colorado. Any advice or opinions would be appreciated?
  23. Trying out a new loctite product 249 tape. It is a serviceable loctite product. It has no mess just keep it out of the heat. Seems to work well
  24. Friends, I just came back from my annual 4 day motorcycle / camping trip in the Michigan U.P. and for the second year I've used this grill. I am not affiliated with them in any way, or do I receive any compensation. I just wanted to share this product with you as it works great and packs well. I hope it's useful info to some of you campers out there. Travel safe. http://www.adjustagrill.com/
  25. ...was finding out that all retailers in Western NY and SW Ontario are no longer carrying replacement soap and filters for the Mr. Clean Autodry car wash system...and I know this because it seemed like I personally checked out all of the retailers myself...whew. Apparently, I had enough stock on hand not to realize that the product was discontinued last year sometime. Dam, I hate it when a good product is discontinued...(can anyone say, yeah me too, like the 1st gen Venture was too?). Sooo what are all you users going to do? Are there retailers I don't know about? Yeah, yeah, I know about Amazon and eBay....groan.
