  1. Re: Utility Trailer for my Son-in-Law Coming Up

    My first motorcycle trailer was made from an old pop-up. It wasn't nearly that nice. ;)

    I pulled it with a 1600cc Pinto. :doh

    Re: Harley

    True story.

    At the Eureka Springs ZRX rally years ago a young man showed up with a Buell. Cooper had been laying a fake, plastic oil slick under everyone's bike as a joke, so he laid it under the...

    I'm 72 and didn't get any of those.

    I did, however, buy an RV. Does that count? ;)

    Re: It is amazing what you can get used to.

    I lowsided my ZRX several years back. I replaced the parts that were busted, and continued to ride it. It felt OK. I didn't notice anything wrong.

    Then one day I took my FJR out for 100 miles...

    Re: Harley

    I generally ask them "Are you happy with your _______?" They'll answer "Yes."

    Then I say "Well, I'm happy with my _______. We're both happy. I'm not seeing the problem here."

    Re: Check tires

    One of my wife's relatives (I'm not saying who, but a young man in his early 20s) was here some time back, and my wife noticed one of his tires looked low. She had him pull over to my shop and...

    When you're ready to run the valves we've got a shim kit too. :thumbs:
  10. Re: A slack-jawed toothless Hello from central Arkansas

    Yeah, we're almost neighbors :laff:

    I've got a set of OEM shocks I'm not using and probably never will. You're welcome to them.
  11. Re: A slack-jawed toothless Hello from central Arkansas

    Steiny beat me to it, but if you could make it to ES for the rally you'd be welcomed.

    Where in Central Arkansas? I live southwest of Little Rock about a mile south of Lawson Road.

    Re: And the FJR 1300A has arrived.

    That's what I thought too. The FJR is so smooth it's hard to see how they'd improve it. The cruise fix may be worth the $350, but I'm afraid I'd not be happy with the fix to the throttle that...

    Re: And the FJR 1300A has arrived.

    There's no difference between Touring and Sport mode other than application of the throttle. With ride by wire they simply let you apply more with less turn of the wrist in the first half or so of...

    Re: And the FJR 1300A has arrived.

    The Arkansas dealers don't even carry them and tell me it's because nobody wants them. I get downright excited when I see one, sort of like the ZRX ;) That obviously drives the used price down.

    And wire spoked wheels.

    Re: Why have a reserve AND a fuel gauge?

    My first bike with a fuel gauge was an '83 Suzuki. The petcock was under a stupid little door that was a pain in the rear to get opened while sitting on the bike, so I started running it on reserve...

    Re: And the FJR 1300A has arrived.

    I've wondered. I may still do it.

    Actually, no more fuel than I run through it the extra 20 cents a gallon or so wouldn't matter.

    Re: And the FJR 1300A has arrived.

    I'm OK with 82 usually, but I'd have liked to set it higher in Utah a few weeks back.



    That's correct. One option of Ivan's mod is to do away with the limits. It's not that expensive, and...

    Re: And the FJR 1300A has arrived.

    Cruise control on the '13 is limited to 82 mph. '14 and later is much higher -- 100 maybe?
