    Just yesterday, a pickup with an entire pallet of individual bags of mulch (you've all seen those bags at Home Depot, right?). The pallet was stacked two or three feet higher than the cab of the...

    Sorry to hear that. Sounds like you need a new dealer, not a new bike.

    Don't know. Personally, I only check the New Posts tab daily; never look in individual folders. Thus I only see anything from the F-Twins folder when someone makes a new post in it. Not sure why I do...

    Gary, I've ridden that road several times over the years, in each direction at least once. It is a gorgeous ride, but I agree with everything you've said. Be careful.

    I equate this interaction to two riders waving to each other. Neat story, thx for sharing.

    This is a good idea, Paul. But what do you do in one of those Arizona counties this is as big as most New England states? It might be an all-day ride just to find the sheriff. <grin>

    Years ago, on our first long trip, my buddy and I agreed on the following: if we get separated (in traffic most likely) each of us would proceed to the first safe place to pull off the road and we...

    A little experience might fix that. On every trip I've ever taken, I've packed less stuff than the time before. I can now travel a week with a tank bag. But remember, I travel solo--no wife.

    I'm running GTs on my ST which weighs less than your R and I am mostly empty when I ride. The GTs handle well and don't feel harsh to me at all.

    Funny thing, most of the bikes I see at Starbucks are BMWs and the riders all look the same, except they/we are dressed like armadillos instead of pirates.

    Wow! Thought I was simply a jerk, now I know lots of folks don't jump to answer the phone when it rings.

    Best answer I ever heard to this question: "If it is important, they will text me."

    Actually I agree with you completely. But the photo you included suggested the tire had lots of tread left and the hole was smallish and the hole was firmly in the main tread area. As I said in my...

    Did you try to plug it? I've successfully rescued several tires like this and ridden them to a full life. If the nail/screw is in the sidewall, or if the tire is worn a lot, I don't even try to plug...
