    New Member & Need Help 🤔

    Careful about trying to turn the Sport-Tourer into a HD Bagger with Ape Hangers. It's a different riding position that you should give a few months for you to adjust.

    Look for any comments about "friction modifiers" too.

    FJR1300 To Be Retired

    I'm beginning to think the same thing abut my PdP 2003. My first experience with ACC was on a loaner car. It defaulted to off with key-on. I could easily see someone getting comfortable, then getting lazy, assuming it was on until WHAM!

    So either cost prohibitive or uninteresting. Sad.

    Sharing rides and YouTube challenges

    I had a heck of a time getting YT to approve a video I created from (lots of) footage shot in the aftermath of the Murrah Building bombing in OKC as we worked on a new office for our (surviving) employees to go when they were ready to return to work. Seems that the music selected created the...

    Long-Distance Endurance MT10 Project

    Seems more robust than the always-failing BMW plastic ones.

    Heading to the Black Hills of SD. Recommendations/Advice welcome

    I make it a point of avoiding the entire area for at least 2 weeks on either side of the rally. EVERYTHING (rooms, food, etc.) costs more during the rally and the traffic ruins the experience. Even room availability (at increased prices) is questionable the nearer you get. The last time I found...

    2006 FJR only start when jumped

    I've had that happen twice. New bat. Next day wouldn't start. Jumped, got it back to the shop, and it was a DOA on the shelf.

    helmet speakers

    It "turns down" all sounds equally so anything ambient will be there if you listen for it.

    helmet speakers

    I've found that ear monitors let me turn down the volume to nearly off. With ear plugs and speakers, I tend to have to crank up the volume to get through the plugs... not good IMHO.

    Smokers (BBQ - not grilling)

    We went with out daughter to CostCo the other day (see other post about hearing aids). Meat was something like $12/Lb! YIKES! Probably not all of it, but the ones I saw were around that so I quit looking.

    Seat removal without a key

    Given the background, I stand by my original suggestion. SAWS-ALL IT IS!

    helmet speakers

    Got a detailed hearing test last week for both wife and I. She's getting hearing aids (as anyone around he for the past 10 years already knew). Me? Can't help. All high freq loss and most starts right above speaking freq (affecting S and TH type sounds). They went ahead and programmed a pair and...

    Seat removal without a key

    Might I suggest something like this? Or maybe not. ;)
