    Back to team green !!!

    And glad of it.

    Sold the busa, bought a 2012 connie - I am a lousy sportrider anyway... :P

    Seems to ride nice, handles better than the ZRX, I'll say that much. Radial brakes are killer. Heavy compared to the busa.. but the wife is much happier on it so all is good.

    22k miles, any service warnings? It has a TPMS code that doesn't seem to want to clear.. will probably take it to the dealer for a checkover.

    Planning to take this thing about 3k miles in a few weeks, any suggestions for long-trip hacks are welcome.

    I have a corbin-shaped ass, so looking to trade the heated sargent if anyone's interested - it's posted in non-zrx sales. I also have some 2" heli-risers to get rid of.


    Nice to see the group is still active..

    Mahalo,

    John

    Battery in a TPMS sensor is dead.

    Get a couple sheep skins ..... lower the pegs for both of ya cruise 180 and look for fuel at 200 you'll be done at 230 ... crank the suspension full stiff and go back 60% unloaded.

    My pleasure. If you should ever wish to visit some of the finest roads/scenery/history/people in this country I have a place for y'all. Our first ride made us brothers in my book and I remember it like it was last weekend.

    Sheep skinz!! I'll head over to the wing ding...



    I just remember getting my lunch eaten... and justifiably so.


    Actually my most vivid recollection is the later one where I could hear the turbo dump above the wind, AND my bike, when I was running 70 in FRONT of you (which was not for long).

    Jeezus that thing was loud.


    I am going to do some ranging on this I think -
