    You started out at the top of the tier on "K" bikes to avoid for vibration. A K75 from the same era is a decent choice. I suffered on a K from Galveston, Texas to Bath, Maine. Long story short. I...

    South Texas, you stand a better chance of hitting a deer than a rain groove. They, just like rain and curves, are virtually non-existant in this part of the state. Unfortunately we only have ninety...

    Plugs anti-seize or not?
