  1. Thanks, I was at a bike nights and also saw this type of foot peg and didn't know what is was.
  2. Doc, that is s great looking bike! I'm with ToniK on your statement about "This bike I will be keeping for long time". I don't believe that statement with stand the test of time. Doesn't matter, we keeping searching for bikes that fit our needs and desires.
  3. Still a deal breaker for me!
  4. The FJR is 651 lb. wet versus 848 lb. for the Goldwing. If I was going to be touring the country on a regular basis, IMO the wing is the only bike to get!
  5. I borrowed a FJR for an Iron Butt last year and decided I really enjoy endurance riding. I have been looking at 2014+ FJR's because the cruise is a MUST for long distance slab riding. The Connie not having cruise is a deal breaker! A sport touring bike without cruise is not even a consideration for me. My Ninja H2 SX SE has cruise, both the Connie and The H2 are manufactured by Kaw, I don't get the reasoning for the Connie not having cruise. I would consider the new generation Goldwing, but the extra weight is my only issue.
  6. Pauly, so sorry to hear about this, happy to hear you two are recovering. Keep your chin up and look forward to riding with you again!
  7. Next you will tell me I was scammed out of the $10,000 I sent to ToniC's kidnapers https://abc7news.com/virtual-kidnapping-for-ransom-scam-fbi/5770376/
  8. Brian, update your bike on your avatar, already!
  9. That sounds like a great commute to work!
  10. Now, eating 2.5 Chipotle burritos in one sitting is Mount Rushmore status, you should be the fifth sculpture... hand down. An impressive feat! 🏆
  11. Lat Saturday (2/13/21) I test rode a Zero SR/F motorcycle and this is my review. I rode by myself to Buckingham, Florida. The ergonomics are very similar to my 2017 Yamaha FZ10, the seat height is lower. Turn the key on, flip the power switch as we do our ICE bikes. Here is the difference, turn the twist grip and go. Even in an automatic transmission car you have to shift into drive. Immediate torque and acceleration, it really has power and speed. This is very fast bike! The bike is like EV cars, extremely smooth. Kept reaching for a clutch lever and up shifting with my left foot. Just a different feeling not having to operate a clutch & shift. The only noise you hear is the whine of the motor. It’s belt drive so this also makes my it smooth. The handling and braking were similar to my FZ10. I rode five miles the way we ride and noticed the ranged dropped 16 miles. I couldn’t go mach retard because it was governed at only 108 MPH. I did hit the limit several times. When I started the ride the dash indicated a range of 87 miles. After riding for 30 miles the dash showed 24 miles range left. The battery degradation was 73 miles in my 30 mile test ride. As with EV’s cars the motorcycle range anxiety is a deal breaker unless a person commutes a short distances. If you like to go for day rides of 250-350 miles EV bikes are not an option. The economics also don’t make sense, the Zero SR/F I test rode is over $21K. Zero does offer a base model for $9K with a lower range. In the future EV motorcycles might appeal to some people when the battery technology improves, but the range will have to increase monumentally to have the convenience of ICE bikes. I don’t believe EV bikes will ever be a consideration in my motorcycle riding lifetime. JMHO! Link to Zero ST/F specs: https://www.zeromotorcycles.com/model/zero-srf/

  13. My friends and I debate our Mt. Rushmore of bands, this gets a lot of discussion. Mine are: Led Zeppelin Eagles Bruce Springsteen Rolling Stones ACDC could displace the Stones sometimes
  14. Welcome and nice vintage bike you have. Live in the Ville (Strongs), I ride to SEO most of the time. Hopefully we can get together sometime.
  15. Man, I thought you were Big Tech the way you were able to get all his private information and post it one here. Can you tell where he had lunch today? LOL😃
