    Last Friday I rode home from Cranbrook the longer but better route. Temp was just above freezing when I left, but the electric jacket kept me comfortable. Then I encountered fog - not thick enough...

    I don't think it is age but rather mental and physical infirmities that decide when we SHOULD either reduce our riding or hang it up altogether.

    Anyone old enough to have an interest in this...

    Osbork, I feel for you and hope this is a one-time thing. My closest friend, now 72, had something similar happen to him while driving this spring. He passed out. Fortunately, he (and his wife as...

    Think the last post answered my question (my old bike has both a gas gauge and low fuel light which both work) if this was a bad design or they simply got some bad parts where a one-time replacement...

    Watched that brief video twice. Have to say that motorcyclist seemed to be moving pretty fast for the road and did not exhibit any "situational awareness." He paid a high price. Not sure if the...

    I believe the difference is that a passenger in the car can see a problem and suddenly shout DEER or whatever. Yes, spirited conversation in a vehicle probably IS distracting and best avoided (not...

    If your statement is fact, it raises other questions: 1. Can the float system give the digital readouts of the strip system? 2. If so, why did BMW not replace faulty strips with a float system? Or...

    I guess I don't get it.

    If Harley could easily slightly raise their redline (for, I presume, a slight increase in power) with no other bad effects than the switch, why didn't they build the bike...

    Good point. I knew a couple who took long trips on a 1100GS and 1150GS with stock saddles. So they DO fit some butts. But, if you are uncomfortable after an hour, YOUR butt doesn't fit the stock...

    I completely agree with the last poster on one point - no matter how good your helmet is, you MUST use earplugs to protect your hearing. You will also enjoy a more serene and pleasurable ride.
