Re: Reverse Question

Thanks all. It hasn't has a repeat. If it does, I'll have cables adjusted and keep an eye out from there. Thanks again.

Reverse Question

I have a 2014 Wing, purchased new. My driveway is a slight incline going into the garage, so I turn the bike and back it in. Knees have gone bad leaving me to use reverse for about twenty feet every time I park it. Probably do this about three times a week. 1) Any Ideas on how long the starter moto...

Re: Group Rides

I've given up on the large group ride thing. Too many times it seems a number of other riders set the destination and stops traveling bar to bar. I don't drink while I'm riding and am more than a little tired of those who constantly need to stop for a beer. After another rider almost put me in a di...

Knee Replacement

Can't wait any longer. Going in for a Total Knee Replacement in a couple weeks. Any fellow Wingers have the procedure and how long before you were back on the bike? PT told me today to pickle the sled 'til next season. Was hoping to be back on in October. What was your experience?
TIA,

Re: I have a wonderful wife

Me too! I took care of my F-i-l during his last months. After he passed, my wife asked if I would deal with the estate and not return to work. After this was done, my wife asked me to take her to the motorcycle dealership. We looked at a few bikes, Harley, Victory and then went over to the Honda de...

I have a few too many cats. One of them has an issue with occasional marking & incontinence. We use Nature's Miracle and find that it works very well.

Re: Take Off Your Helmet??

I just came home from a couple of weeks in Norway. 24 hrs of daylight this time of year. I noticed that all riders, except small scooters, wore helmets, boots, gloves, protective pants and armored jackets. At a rest stop I talked to one of the bikers. His English wasn't great, but much better than ...

Hap2, considering what has happened and the anxiety you have, you might be suffering from a bit of PTSD. Although many people laugh this off and consider it a poor excuse for bad behavior, it is very real and can cause someone to relive events, become so anxious about an activity that they can no lo...

Re: Which model? (*IF* you were to replace your Wing)

When I was looking at bike before I purchased my 2013 Wing, I checked out a couple Victory's, but they seemed to be very cheaply made. Everything was soft plastic, loose, crash bars were flimsy and it didn't have passenger crash bars or a comfy seat for the Mrs.I also looked at a Harley Touring Ful...

Re: Does Anyone Have This BT Headset - Cardo PACKTALK

I purchased a Cardo Scala Team Rider Q1 set. I have been very happy with the product. No problems with noise when I was using the open face helmet - directional mic with windscreen keeps noise down and I have had no problems with voice activation, although I now use a full face helmet.

Re: Protective Clothing

After many years working the ICU and caring for some of the survivors, I lean more towards the ATGATT philosophy. When I see a guy riding in shorts, a beater and flip flops without a helmet, I tend to think of it as natural selection.

Highway from NY to London

This would be the trip of a lifetime. Would be great if governments could get out of the way and make this happen. I would love to take 4 or 5 months and take this ride.

Re: Trouble Sleeping

My mistake. I was under the impression that your sleep issues were an ongoing concern. If you only have trouble sleeping once or twice a year, it's not an issue. Write off my previous message , enjoy your retirement and more time with your Wing!

I've had no trouble with battery and charging issues. I usually get 3 days (9-10 hrs actual use) from each charge, unless I sync with radio or Spotify - then I still get at least 8 hrs.

Re: Trouble Sleeping

Not everyone needs 8 hrs sleep. When I was much younger, I only needed 4-5 hours. Now I do best with seven. As we age, some of us need less sleep at night, but nap during the day. Many things can cause sleep disturbances - statins, Beta Blockers, Alpha blockers and Ace inhibitors are the main culpr...
