    I did basically the same thing on my '06 RT but just tapped into the wire to the running light with no apparent effect to the Can-Bus. Of course I had to run a wire back to the fuse block under the...

    Pull the plug (six wires?) under the right side of the instrument panel for all the headlights and front running lights (and I think the front turn signals?).

    RT vs. GT

    Rather than commit to one or the other, I bought a 2006 R1200RT and brought it home, promising my wife I would sell one of them in a couple of months. I rode the RT steadily for a couple weeks to...

    (1) I do not want to turn this into an off-topic political debate, and (2) this is a totally non-partisan commentary - I am disgusted by both parties equally. Having said that...

    I definitely go out of my way to put pure gas in my bikes. It's pretty readily available in TN, generally about 0.30/gal higher than E10. Depending on the station, they may have only 91 octane...

    Just got back from the rally, my first time riding in MN and WI (trailered the bike there and back from TN). Wife and I both commented that about 80% of the HD riders (which constituted 90% of the...

    Happy with Progressive

    Had Progressive for my auto insurance for years, and have been very happy with them; occasionally shop around for better rates and never find any. So I went with them for my MC insurance... 100/300...

    I have a Givi on my '04 GT, but I can't for the life of me find the model. No backrest pad, but the boss says she doesn't care as long as there's something behind her. Color matched, too.
