Re: It is time to say goodbye.

Totally agree with Windadmin. I'll drive 3-4000 miles a week. You guys should see what I see from my perched view. I still find it hard to believe the number of distracted drivers. Look at the sad case in Texas last week. 13 people dead. Texting.....Grrr.. Nuf said. Also since I'm here, watch for po...

Re: Seat for bad back

Too many adds. :lol: :lol:

As far as seats go my backrest definitely helps. Like Wing Admin stated the Corbin is a bit firm. I know mine is, so I might just soften it up a little bit this spring with a sheep skin. Maybe someone will chime in that uses one.

Re: What's Happening Today?

I drove 120 miles through some of the worst roads we've had so far this year to get to an Honor Mission for the Patriot Guards. I left at 0700, so some of the roads were plowed, but they were still plenty greasy. It is ALWAYS worth it to stand with these men and women. Then I came home and plowed th...

Although it was staying on his shoulder, it was flapping it's wings like it wanted to fly. It looked like it was smacking him pretty good as he was cursing and trying to get it off...

Holy cats Stuart... Sorry to hear about the damage to your bike and your garage. I'm glad the loser punks didn't get away with your girl. Thank God for good neighbors. Motion detectors on the inside is a great idea!! While shopping at Harbor Freight they also have signs like "Smile You're On Camera"...

Re: pushed over

Maybe a wheel chock like one from Harbor Freight. You would have to find a way to anchor it down outside (maybe a piece of steel plate or a sheet of treated plywood?). You could even put a cable lock around your front tire so nobody could even back it off. Monsignore.. nice way to keep things in per...

I read Wingadmins' post about starting the bike and putting it in reverse and the drive shaft will slide right in. The problem comes as the bike is not running right now, so reverse is not an option. I'm at an impasse. :x I know force is not the answer, it came out easy enough, Are there any more tr...

Okay, ignore previous post. I got it... but it wasn't pretty. I would still like to know a better method (maybe the correct method), though so as that I don't trash the collector.
