    I changed the fork oil last night. Probably the hardest thing of the whole process was deciding to start and getting the tools out.

    The forks do drain from the bottom if you decide not to remove...

    I just checked the "Hall of Wisdom" and there's a thread on how to fit these footpegs. At least, I think they are the same ones.

    I just officially turned over 50,000 miles. The change interval is the service at 25K. We've had some weather that limited trips to just things like to and from church, which is only about 10 miles...

    I'm surprised one of their products is giving you problems. When I first looked at my MV Verholen bar risers, I thought in my mind that this was a machined work of art.

    I stick my excess cash under the Kleenex box in the bathroom. You could try that.

    I like some of the things about it like the cornering ABS and traction control that takes into account your lean angle. The longer suspension travel would be another plus.

    But on the other hand,...

    You're lucky. When I hit 25,000 miles, the GT was still in production and the belt was over $500 US. I bought mine then, though I haven't changed it.

    I think the ST will do great for you as a commuter. The fairing will give you enough protection to shield you some from the elements, but not so much you're pushing a barn door through the air. The...

    Seat height is only one part of the equation. What none of those measurements will tell you, is how much the sides of the seat slope down, or how wide it is. Or how much preload you have dialed in...

    Did you try the Madstad? Not sure what the price difference is. You might be able to find someone nearby who has one and try it before spending money on either.

    This is from a Halocam M1 dash camera. Not really an "action camera", but it is mounted where you were saying as an example of what the perspective is there.

    I thought seriously about the RS and preferred it over the RT when I test rode both. If I was looking for a sport-touring bike and didn't have the GT already, I'd seriously consider the RS. In...

    If I ever have to replace my white 2014 GT, I may look for a 2013 in black. That colour is absolutely gorgeous on the bike.

    Do you leave the forks on the bike when you use the Isopropyl alcohol? Or just pour it in and let it flush through the drain hole?
