Re: The idiots are out there

I once observed a BIG black SUV bearing down on my back fender with alarming speed..... looked right, lane full. looked left, grassy median strip with one of those cable barriers in the middle.

Re: Strange thing only when I pull trailer

the only abnormal thing I have experienced is when I first got my wood box trailer. it had been narrowed and the owner cut the axle and patched it back together himself. him being a carpenter, did not lend well to the results. also, he cut the tongue "short to pull behind his trike".... bad mistake....

Re: trailer lghts not working

Harbor Freight has a nice little tool for testing current draw: circuit tester - you remove the fuse in question (up to 30A) and plug this tool into the fuse block, then place the just-removed fuse into the tool (to protect the circuit). It will show how much current is flowing in the circuit... wh...

Re: which Highway pegs do you suggest?

owned two 1500s, both had solid pegs on the vertical bars. okay, sort of.... but I did not like them because IF, you lay down, they will dig into the asphalt and spin you violently...

I don't suspect that he was going that fast, as the wind screen is still intact from what I can see. Surely the rider would have been thrown forward.

Re: why I choose a car tire

If you choose one of the car tires with a more rounded profile, and you keep it pressured up in the 40-55 psi range, it is hard to tell that you are not using a "motorcycle tire". the flatter profiles though have a bad tendency to want to climb out of ruts, but at the same time, they totally ignore ...

Which one do you think is ignored the most?

Exhaust System, Handlebar Height, Helmets, Headlights?

Re: Insurance

Here in the states, if our vehicles are not insured, our license plates are revoked, and that happens quickly when the insurance company reports that lapse to the state.

not good if we happen to catch the interest of an LEO.
