    Sold Russell Day Long Drivers/Passenger Seat

    If I sold my FJR I would have tears.

    Brother's done riding, need FMV for his bike

    So sorry about your brother. I tend to be sentimental but have been trying to learn to get better at getting rid of stuff. However, I think the advice here is spot on with keeping it if you can. I am very close to my nephew (he's more like a son to me) and his younger brother died a couple years...

    Choosing a Gen II Rifle windshield size (vs Gen I)

    I had to pull out my OEM windshield for a guy that may want it and the invoice for the Rifle was in the box. It is an FJR1300 '06 Tour +3" tall +4 wide

    My worst ride to date

    Sorry to hear about your accident. Glad you are just sore. My brother and niece both live just north of there. It's a pretty area, but we hit lots of traffic when we rode there a couple years ago. My niece's husband had a bicycle accident right in that same area and still is recovering from...

    Choosing a Gen II Rifle windshield size (vs Gen I)

    I put a Rifle medium on my 07 back in 2012. I love it. I don't remember whether they sold it as a +3 or what it was other than a "Medium". It is 15 inches from the top mounting bolt, if that helps. I found my review here back on Nov 11, 2012 and it only says medium too. The review is...

    Goodmans wrecked in KY

    We made it home. It's kind of entertaining as we manage to do things with my one working arm and her with none. But we are very blessed with helpful friends and family. She's only cried twice since the accident and the second was this morning when I took her outside to see the flowers blooming...

    Goodmans wrecked in KY

    This-^ Got the quotes messed up there but That’s SteveO311’s quote that I’m trying to agree with strongly. Left hand :)

    Ha! I thought it was a sketch of our accident the farmers drew and sent in!

    Goodmans wrecked in KY

    Those were all left handed thoughts :) On the gauntlet gloves, of course we don’t really know. I just think it would. They make you wear them at the track for a reason, though. I picked her thinnest gloves for that day because she was going to take road pictures. Grr. If not protecting the...

    Goodmans wrecked in KY

    Tammy and I had a low-side Thursday on the second day of our Ohio trip on the Goldwing. We didn't even make it out of Kentucky. We both have broken wrists that need surgery. Tam got it a lot worse than I did, which I can't figure out. I have no other injuries except the wrist. She had a level 5...

    Summer Jackets, Pants, and Gloves

    Not going to highjack the thread totally with our wreck yesterday but our gear likely saved my wife’s life. The only thing we had skimped on was short cuff gloves for both of us. The only broken bones we have is my wrist and her wrist, forearm and fingers. It isn’t magic but my belief in its...

    SEO 2022 Vulture and Snake Attack

    So on the first day of our trip this week we saw a vulture in the middle of the road. I joke to Tam that it’s probably got a snake and sure enough it had a snake. It didn’t throw it at us, thankfully

    SEO 2022 Vulture and Snake Attack

    This is nuts, man. I hit a vulture several years ago that flew up from the side just like that but didn't break anything. But having it throw a snake? I don't like snakes. I ran over a snake once with my wife on the back and all I could think about was if I threw it up onto me. If she saw it she...

    Summer Jackets, Pants, and Gloves

    Take this as just my experience and opinion. I hear you saying that you are in the habit of riding in shirts and jeans, so I'm focusing on your point of making SOME improvement. It was very hard for me to make the shift to MATGMATT (most all the gear, most all the time) from lots of years riding...

    Name That Place Game

    I tried to post a much more obvious hint last week, but somehow didn't save it. Let's go ahead and punt: This is the Mexican Railroad Trestle off hwy 82 in Cloudcroft, New Mexico. We enjoyed 82 from Artesia over to Alamagordo, but took a recommended detour on 24 which got really good coming up...
