    Oh, boy...next Friday the forecast calls for 60 degrees and sunny. Time to take the patio furniture out of the garage, remove the covers from the bikes (yeah, I cover them in the garage, to keep the...

    Now that you've got a new lid (I also use the RF-1200), it bears repeating that using a light silk balaclava under your helmet will accomplish two things - keep your helmet interior clean (just hand...

    We got a fairly good snowfall this past weekend...total of about 8-10". Just a week ago, our daffodils were starting to sprout. I suspect once this storm system is gone (we're already melting snow...

    "My hayfields..." Now THAT piqued my interest. Having worked on a ranch in Wyoming in the late 1950's to 1961, I have memories of bailing hay and throwing bails (and learning to be careful turning...

    Mother Nature...what a tease...

    It hit 64 degrees here today, after a month or three in the 20's, 30's and 40's. Boy, you think...riding season! Too bad it was 25-30 mph winds, cloudy and a threat of rain.

    I know it's coming,...

    I've tried the Madstad and didn't care for it at all, for reasons already covered in other threads. What I've learned is that dealing with turbulence requires that you give up your quest for...

    Regarding "neck chilling", I always wear (even in hot weather) a neck gaiter and a lightweight silk balaclava. Why? The neck gaiter cuts down a lot of wind noise, as does the balaclava. The gaiter...

    I use a Deltran "Battery Tender Plus", which is NOT a trickle-charger, but a battery maintainer. It will only provide charging if the battery needs it. I hook up both my bikes to one of these...

    I go out to the garage once in a while to "check" on the bikes. I talk to them, but they seem uninterested in idle conversation, and give every impression of wanting to be left alone in hibernation...

    From this most recent post, I'd say you should go for it. The weight factor is something I really appreciate about the GT. I don't want a heavier bike, and the GT is great fun for cruising, or...

    I have both a 2018 GT and a 2017 RR...so the soft GT suspension doesn't bother me at all, mainly because the RR is "sport-firm" and a soft ride once in a while is very nice.

    But, yeah, going from...

    You'll get used to the aesthetics of the MRA X-Creen within a day or two. At first I thought it looked a bit strange, but that passed immediately...it now appears to me as very natural, a functional...

    Yes, I did put it back on. Once I switched back and forth a few times, I was able to detect what the X-Creen was doing (and I believe I documented that a while back). Essentially, what the X-Creen...
