    Lane Positioning

    Just to stick in another perspective, I always move around in my lane a lot. I figure it is going to get somebody's attention, moving from side to side in his mirror or popping up on one side or the other. I also look to see if I can see his eyes looking back at me. Helps I ride with my very...

    Any one else notice gas mileage has decreased significantly?

    I did notice my miles-per-dollar-spent-on-gas number has dipped. A lot.

    Happy Pi day

    My sister-in-law's birthday. Retired high school math teacher. :sneaky:

    It’s not you…it’s me.

    NO miles? There must be more to this story.

    Riding my dog

    I haven't used the "search members" feature lately, maybe since the format changed a while back, so I decided to look up what I sent you off to look up. Turns out I misspelled the name (well, he did, actually). It's "marcusorelius." Found a video that shows Duchess in her domain. I didn't...

    Riding my dog

    PM "Marcusaurelius" about this. Or just search for his posts. Long-time dog transporter around here. First Duke, now Duchess. He cut an opening in a standard FJR side case, added some kind of Sopwith Camel windscreen, and gave the dogs some Barney Oldfield goggles. I haven't met Duchess...

    Oh oh, He's Back...

    Good to see you back and still riding. Congrats to Jack--remember him from Montrose too. Great area and great riding around Moab, the new place and the view look gorgeous. Life is good.

    Tire Question. Car Tires. For a Car.

    Great feedback from everybody!  Thanks.  So it's her car and her decision but I wanted to give her some input from somebody with no dog in the fight--and more expertise than I have, this being one of those (very few, really) subjects I don't know jack about.  🙄  But she made an appointment for...

    Tire Question. Car Tires. For a Car.

    With all the expertise around here, figgered this was a good place to ask.  My wife took her Subaru Forester in for a random scheduled service yesterday and they told her she has a nail or something in one of the tires.  There has to be at least 20,000 miles left on that set of tires, but...

    What did you do to your FJR today?

    Taking the Going To The Sun Road, I suppose?

    AAA bad experience

    Sounds like AAA was the problem.  😊 Sorry, Don

    Bike $ales from 1955 to 2020

    I'd be interested in seeing one that also showed the average displacement of motorcycle engines over the same  period. especially for first-time buyers.  Anybody remember 125's and 160's?  Or 90s?

    Stich and Julie Schlachter [FJRfarrier]

    Cool, Julie.  Put that in the Name the Place game.  Where is it?

    Sad News

    I was so sad to hear this, Ray.  Of course you have all of our support and I hope it's some help or comfort.  Janet joins me in our condolences.

    HiWay 1 mudslide - great pics

    You're right about the pics Don.  That link was cool too, except that after a minute you end up at the subscription option (the other option is stop using it).  But it showed a couple of the possible ways they could fix it.  That was interesting, but I have another alternative: fill it with...

    Where's That Other Forum?

    Thanks everybody.  My very worst fear was NOT realized, at least.  It's not just me . . .

    Where's That Other Forum?

    There used to be some He Who Must Not Be Named kinds of people and businesses around here--don't think it's so much that way anymore, but anyway, I'm talking about FJRiders, and for the second day in a row when I try to open it up, I get some weird message that tells me "Oops!  That page doesn't...
