  1. You guys are going to have a great time! Enjoy the trip!
  2. There are quite a few people on here that ride sporty touring bikes that track up the miles. The ST1300s are great bikes.
  3. The battery replacement on the old TPMS isn't too bad. I'm on my 2nd battery on each wheel. I like the peace of mind of having TPMS. It has alerted me that my tire had picked up nails in on 2 separate occasions over the years.
  4. A switch to a slip on exhaust and an ECU reflash will gain you 4 to 5mpg. It will also awaken the motor in the lower rpms. I average low 40s during commuting and riding on the superslab. I refuel around 200 miles, but wouldn't feel uncomfortable going to 225 to 230 miles. Playing in the twisties will obviously drop the mileage.
  5. It will also change your perception of distance. Riding all day to go to far off places is no big deal.
  6. Like @2talltimstated, I'm running the RDL. I'm using the Cal Sci Tall windshield. https://www.calsci.com/motorcycleinfo/Concoursprod.html I'm not sure what size rear tire you have, but switching to a 55 series rear tire (from the 50 series stock tire) will give you a little more cornering clearance. The 55 series tire also make initial turn into a curve a little more responsive. My other suggested farkles: motorcycle specific GPS, Ram-ball mounts for phone, throttle lock(or after market cruise control like Tim), after market trunk, and I like to use a tank bag when I'm touring.
  7. I had the cupping issue with Michelins, but I haven't had that issue to the same degree with the Dunlop RS3s. For the record, the front tire can't cup if it's not on the ground.
  8. @Pauly best wishes for a speedy recovery! Thanks for sharing and reminding everybody about the importance of good quality safety gear.

  10. Are you buying new or used? I thought most Harley dealers would let you take bikes out for a test ride. I've been in 2 Harley dealers looking at bikes over the years, and they both offered to let me take their bikes out for a test ride. If not, go to a Harley dealer and sit on a bunch of bikes to see which one you like. Find that bike on the used market (Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, dealer, etc.). Go to the owner's house with the full asking price in cash & ask for a test ride (assuming that you are truly interested). With cash in hand, most people will not have any issues a
  11. Damn it, Tim. Your ruining the egos of a bunch of middle aged men rocking the dad bod.
  12. Even my daughters ride 110s.
  13. If your ever near Pataskala, you can feel free to try out my Russell Day Long seat. Buying a new Wing is also a great idea.
  14. If nobody else expresses an interest, I am interested in any or all of them.
