    I found if you right-click and ask your brewers to ‘open in a new window,’ it will display. Something about the link is blocked.

    Had to think about this for a bit.

    The RPM is not going to change ‘how well the transmission shifts.’ Regardless of the engine speed, the transmission is disengaged while shifting. Or at least it...

    First rest stop was about 150 miles out. Parked...

    As they say, YMMV. I have heard some that sound terrible. My one-owner ‘15 still sounds like a sewing machine. I would say they do not all sound like a box of rocks.

    My dirty wheels are definitely from break dust alone.

    I use ArmorAll wash wipes. The wheels (entire bike) stay very clean and make the few bugs that stick, easy to remove.
