  1. Funny, I got email today....
  2. Doesn't matter what I own, car or bike. I change the oil/filter every 5,000 miles. Keeps the math easy. Haven't lost an engine yet.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    These are Pilot Pures. First I had Pirelli Angels on the SF rims, but when the gold rims came in I had the Pilot Pures put on them. Iron Pony had them in stock.

    Earplugs for rididng

    I use expensive Westone earpieces (got a huge discount through work), but before those I used these earfuze and I really liked them. https://www.earfuze.com/ You don't have to get ones with earbuds, they sell them without so you can mold just earplugs.

    So my brand new Grom had a bad vibration in the wheels/tires. I had read nothing good about the stock tires so rather than have them warranty it for another set of the same, I just bought some better ones and installed them. Didn't fix the problem. Many people said that the rims on the 2nd gen models have gone down in quality, that Honda has cheaped out on them. So I bought a set of 1st gen Grom wheels in gold (overseas market), and what do you know, the vibration is gone. 2nd gen wheels were junk. Plus the gold rims look PIMP

    I've only got around 2500 miles on them, but they're looking good so far.

    Completed a SaddleSore 1000 on my Connie last weekend. Went from Knoxville to Memphis up to St Louis back home to Fort Wayne. Did it in 16.5 hours. Didn't take any pictures, only got rained on once between Terre Haute and Indy. Bought a Grom a few days ago.

    Little Shepherd Trail Kentucky

    @Danimal and I did that awhile back. Didn't know what it was when we rode it. A little ribbon of asphalt through the woods. Couldn't believe it was two-way.

    I gave up on the wrap... for now. Just doing that one piece was a pain, not looking forward to doing any others. The muffler was dented when I bought it. This past weekend I managed to: Replaced the muffler with a non-dented one. Replaced the fuel tank. (PO painted the old one) Replaced the fuel filter while swapping the pump to the new tank. Ripped out all the CA emissions stuff since the replacement tank is non-CA. Replaced the two right fairings. (PO painted) Installed switchbacks on the front turn signals. Installed Auxbeam LED headlights. Then rode to Iron Pony on Sunday with a friend (he's got a couple BMWs) and got some tags.

    I'm baaaaaaakkkkk!

    I was in a Honda dealer today, and looking at the new Wings I was thinking of how pretty that blue is. Congrats on the bike, I'm very impressed by them, if I were rich I'd have one.

    Anyone have a Givi V56 top box?

    If you have one, can you measure the internal width? I have something 22.5" wide and I'm looking for some luggage that is big enough.

    Getting marks off a matte finish.

    Try acetone. Ask your wife if she has any fingernail polish remover. *Not responsible for fucking up your helmet*
