Thank you Sidcar.

Re: Dunlop Elite 4's

My E4's wiggled on grooved pavement from day 1. Maybe not day one, but when nearly new with less than a couple hundred miles on them. Could've been day 1, but not sure. About 9k miles later they wiggle less on the same stretch of grooved pavement. I've also measured my tread depth about every 1k mil...

Re: Motorcycle parking at work and dog food.

I got a laugh out of the big bag of dog food on the seat! (I have a big dog, too, so it's familiar to me). It's truly amazing what you can get on a 'Wing. A few years ago, I needed to transport a Johnson 9.9 hp. outboard motor, and all I had available for transport was my GL1500. I strapped it on i...

Re: A couple of questions

Thank you! I did not discuss XM when I bought it. My understanding is you have to add an antenna? And pay them to install? If you have a XM capable bike from the factory the antenna should already be there just waiting for service activation. XM service isn't cheap, but if you want just the traffic...

Re: A couple of questions

The weather feature does require XM activation since that is where it get the information from. It can also get traffic information from them that it can use in tandem with the navigation system along routes and stuff. There was a 90 free trial when I bought mine. Did you not get that with yours?

Re: Motorcycle parking at work and dog food.

My work only has enough space in the motorcycle parking area for three bikes. However, I find it’s usually enough because I’m the only regular rider. There’s one other woman that rides some kind of nekid 600 Kawi and some else that rides a little Harley. I only see those a couple times a month even ...

Re: 2019 Garmin NAVI Map Update - Clock Error

This is probably a dumb question, but what happens when you change the date to the correct current date after it defaults to 1999 on startup after installation? Does it still show October 1999?
