    What did you do to your bike today?

    Yes, Alaska leather, via Amazon. Looks like a quality piece, but not cheap.

    Installed a sheepskin seat cover on the WR for my old tired ass.

    Random Thoughts thread

    Did a Ron Ayres tour to Argentina,Uruguay, and Brazil several years back. Expensive, but worthwhile to have a guide so you can experience the place without concentrating on navigation. And your bike is not overweighted with luggage.

    Ear Plugs, What are you using?

    I'll normally commute to/from work (about 8 miles) without earplugs because its so short of a trip (about 8 miles, and don't get over 60mph, briefly). I wish I'd put them in every time i do it. Frankly it's downright painful.

    Tried the Givi tanklock on my GSA...Wouldnt stay latched. That mounting mechanism is way cheep. Sent it back and ordered the SWMotech setup...SO much more robust mounting system. I like the Givi bags, but that mounting is a joke.

    Scumbag Harley

    If you ever experience riding one, you will pull the trigger!
  11. I dont understand why anyone would want anything approaching forward controls. Its not comfortable, its not safe, it doesn't allow you to stand up (see previous 2), it doesnt allow you to weight a peg for cornering, it doesnt allow you to easily move your foot out of the way for cornering (heel hits first). It doesnt allow you to easily slide off the seat for corners. The only reason I can think of to have forward controls is so that your seat can be low. Not a great reason.

    unOFFICIAL Thanks Trump thread.

    Now that we have omnipresent social media, It shouldnt be that hard to simply have everyone, including corporations, to coordinate a simply stop paying taxes month. Get the govt on their knees. THAT would be awesome.

    O.R. Beach Getaway trip (feeler only thread)

    Note that these ~$100 PP/PN are All-Adult resorts. Family resorts can be had for much less (per person). In MB, If you grocery shop and dont leave the condo, then i guess you are gonna have a fairly low cost stay.

    O.R. Beach Getaway trip (feeler only thread)

    We (the wife and I) routinely go to very plush all-inclusives for ~$200 (total, not per person) per night plus air. Hell, we'd drink $200 per night in MB! Of course that's just the two of us, but we're gorging on all sorts of spirits, food, entertainment, and Caribbean blue seas....not cold muddy atlantic surf.

    O.R. Beach Getaway trip (feeler only thread)

    Don't think I'll ever go back to Myrtle, when I can do a Caribbean all-inclusive for less $$. Just keep away from the drug cartels and the incessant sales monkeys.
