    I imagine the cicadas could cause the same mess. Might...

    Norm, ol' buddy. That falling down stuff is a bother. I've picked the Wee Strom up by myself a few times but it's always nice to have help.

    i suppose that the charging stations will be a "pay for" service. If that is the case then they may go the way of ATM's. I met a fellow who built a number of ATM's in remote under served places. When...

    No sweat, I'll probably be dead by then. I hope the infrastructure to support the move is in place by then and that the technology is more advanced than what is available now.

    Always lube splines. Axles too. I've got a container of copper anti seize I've used for years and many bikes. Would I trust that the manufacturer properly lubed the splines on assembly, NO!

    I got mine from this place for my DL650. About $25 for 3. Went into the calipers easily and worked flawlessly.
    Bleeding the brakes took very little time.

    I really enjoyed my ST but wonder if it would have made 100K. I know there have been several that did get high miles but still. Some failures are scary.

    Lubing the Axle bolt is a really good idea. I had one kind of rust in place when i neglected to give it a coating of grease. My bad. A good swack with a hammer knocked it loose and some sense into me.

    If you can find the clamshell originals you may like them. I thought they were brilliant. When I hit a deer and killed the bike I sold my luggage set to a guy in Phoenix for $250. He got away cheap.
