    What did you do to your bike today?

    Email this morning says the wheels are backordered and expected delivery date is Aug 14! At least that's better than an "unfixed" date like the silver ones. I have a week to decide whether I want to cancel or wait it out... I suppose I would probably have been more surprised if they had them sitting on the shelf. The most recent of the two was last sold on a new bike in '07.

    Ordered the wheels I asked about in the Tech and Tips section. The silver color was out of stock and they said the next delivery date is ""├╝nfixed"" so I ordered black.
  3. Just finished dropping 170,000 yen on these! Can't wait to see and ride on them. Tried convincing my wife that they were $11,000 less than a new FZ-10
  4. I have a friend who's working on his second bike that he's fitted with Galespeeds. He says they're not the absolute lightest out there, but they're light around the circumference to minimize rotating inertia and he can really tell the difference. The price seems right and the site I linked will sell the F & R wheels separately which I need since I'm running Hayabusa forks. I'll keep you guys updated and, of course, post pics when they're here and installed.
  5. https://japan.webike.net/products/1253059.html Gun Metallic Silver should look good with my bike. Just have to find a 48T sprocket to fit that isn't a $150 Supersprox On-Demand-CNC custom.

    Pocket knife obsession

    I've been carrying my Spyderco Clipit Delica with half serrated blade for the last 20 years along with a small Victorinox Swiss Army Rambler (size of a Classic but with a bottle opener). I've bought 3 different Kershaws in the last year because I'm fascinated with the spring assist opening but ended up giving them away because they were twice as thick and 3 times as heavy as my Spyderco.

    Get a proper JIS screwdriver and you'll never round out a Japanese crosshead screw again.

    No More Excuses

    If you don't do it, someday you'll have to make excuses for why you didn't.
  9. Does Rick still include Lifesavers with shipments?

    29o when I left this morning. My commute is about 15 minutes longer this winter and I think I found my limit unless I invest in heated gloves.

    Rode it to work this morning! Finally, no rain. 34o but it beats another day in the car.

    Michelin Road 5 Tires

    Yeah, but my Pilot Power 3 also has a 73 load rating. As I understand, the GT spec has a stiffer casing - you'd think that would translate to a higher load rating but not according to the data. Hmm... I have 2 friends with Connies that swear by the PR4GT.

    I like the looks of those. Any word of a GT spec for the FJR & Connie riders?

    Some self info from a newbie rider

    What will taxes at license fees be for that in Malaysia? I don't think I saw anything bigger than 650cc while I was there!

    Some self info from a newbie rider

    You said you want to ride Sepang, are you from KL? I've only been to the airport in KL, but have been to Penang/Kulim several times. I like your country but I've never seen a bike like yours there! Be careful with that thing.
