  1. Went down once, very slowly, at CRP (underinflated front tire didn't want me to make a smooth corner run). "Damage" is just cosmetic, no rubbing.

    Not to be a poopy pants (Letterkenny rules), but just a heads-up. I bought one of these brand new (first gen version) years ago. Kept it for two years, then put it on ebay. Vibrated so badly that it blurred my vision. Dealer couldn't fix it. Maybe ride it before you buy it. Damn on that price. I think I paid $6500 out the door. Was a blast to ride, though, and I wasn't nearly as adventurous as you are.

    Moving to Columbus: Need advice

    I want to thank all of you who helped out with this. Received some great advice here, and she's settled in Columbus. Good area at a very reasonable price. I haven't searched for an apartment in over 30 years (before internet), and thought it would be much easier now. Apparently its not. She and her mom put a lot of time into this and both said that your info was very helpful. Thanks again!

    Hoping for $800-900/ month, but not sure where that puts us as far as safety, convenience, etc. But at least its a starting point.

    Moving to Columbus: Need advice

    We live in SW Ohio so aren't real familiar with the areas and dynamics of CMH. My daughter just graduated college, and is moving to Columbus. She will probably be working downtown, and is looking for a 2bedroom apartment or house to rent. Any advice appreciated. Thx Jeff

    I think I lost my passion for riding

    I'm right in there with ya, TPoppa. You pretty much tell my story. "The bike is in the garage. Its a nice summer evening, I really SHOULD go for a ride". But I don't. I've been out maybe five times this summer. I hate drivers, I hate traffic. Every other car coming toward me has a driver looking down at their phone. Etc etc. I'm just a bitter old man, I guess. Today, I'd be okay with clearing out the garage except for my TW200. Went to Wayne last Sunday with my son, and had a blast. Used to trail ride ATVs a couple of times a month. Fell out of it for a long time. Interests me again. Didn't see one person that day, on the trails, playing on their phone...

    New Harleys...no, really.

    Doesn't really matter how heavy they are, nor how much power they have. Whomever rides it will still be incapable of doing the speed limit, and well revel in riding side by side with other HD riders and 10mph under the speed limit and holding up traffic on two lane roads. Its a Harley thing, you wouldn't understand.

    Title-ing an offroad bike for onroad use

    I used the Tusk kit for about $159. For braking, uses a hydraulic switch which replaces the front brake master cylinder banjo bolt. One main connector to your battery runs all the other stuff they include. I didn't use the taillight assembly which came with the tusk kit, opting instead for a $10 version off of ebay. Horn, turn signals, wiring harness, etc all included. Didn't NEED to buy anything to supplement the kit. If you've got a battery on the bike, you can use the kit. I'm a front-brake user anyhow, so didn't worry about the rear brake activating the taillight BUT they will sell you a second hydraulic switch for the rear if you want it.

    part Harbor Freight lift table

    Bought this in the fall of 2017, used for two minor bike projects. $299 plus taxes so about $320 new. Sell for $275. I cannot help you load into your truck or onto your trailer. No issues.
