Re: Photo Tag ---Anyone want to play?

We just hit mid 50s today, though it was lucky if it was 30 this a.m., and the roads were definitely "slickery", lol.

Re: Looks like Orange Country Choppers is now gone forever

As I kept watching, I could tell it was a "train crash" waiting to happen, and by George it was. The creativity was cool in the beginning and then seemed repeatable. What I did like was seeing semi-easy it was to put a bike together.....though I would not trust myself doing that, lol.

Re: Anyone been turned away from CycleMax?

I can see both points, though if Cyclemax in their T&C states that they can not accept product that was placed on the bike, even any possible little scratch on the item makes it not salable. This is not just a Cyclemax thing, but an overall where internet sales lie. Credit Card companies will normal...

It was good weather (sorta) in the NW this weekend....wife and I headed to the coast in the "cage" to visit peeps, pick up some stuff, and ramble on back. Believe my bike will be on the road next weekend, getting warmed up for the upcoming season ;)

As Stew suggests. The heated element would go on top of the foam, directly under the seat cover. Otherwise, you will have happy warm foam but a cold butt.
Why did I laugh at that?

And what an idea, did not even thing of converting my seat to heated.....

When I bought my current (used) ride, I could not figure where the high pitch ring came from......lower right side on the case saver....UGH! Hanging on a peg board in my garage now where it belongs. Oh, and I have not lost any pieces yet (been 4-5 years)

Re: Are All Gl1500 seats/saddles the same?

What about going to an upholstery shop and getting your current seat form redone (new foam, new cover if needed)? This way you know the seat will fit for one, and you can match the backrest also. Just thinking of other options if possible. I am sure there are probably YouTubes that show how to do it...

Re: Don't believe it when they tell you....

I semi-believe if I am given shop records that I can verify, but 9 out of 10 times I check over and replace fluids, and basic maintenance replacement (though I do still need to do the timing belts....2018 will be that date, once the garage thaws out).
