  1. Am I the only one who didn't know...

  2. Ixil Exhaust - sound open throttle

    If you got a deal on it, fantastic. They're quality parts. I just couldn't see spending double what I did on Ixil for a slip-on when I was deciding. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I'm at 16k and the motor feels the same as it always has. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. No time to read that right now, but I'll say that I subscribed to Cycle World for 99¢ on Prime Day (and I'd be upset if I'd paid more) and they could really use someone as thorough as you. I did glance over it, and though I've never ridden a 6th, I'm more and more underwhelmed with the motor. The sound satisfies me as it's still decent while not sounding like another I4, but the VTEC transition is not smooth to me. It feels like I let off the throttle, even slowly passing through it in 6th gear. And this is no fault at the bike, but passing idiots who want to merge onto the interstate at 50 and then punch it isn't as easily done as I would think.

    And the vast majority of those driving cars could care less about their skills, feel, or involvement. Most people don't even know what engine they have. Even a lot of enthusiasts are happy to see manual transmissions disappear because DCTs and automatics can turn faster lap times, never mind that 99% of them never see a track. Not that there aren't clueless riders, but in the US, it's a very different group. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Universal switchgear

    Since you posted about that a few weeks ago, I've had three or four occasions where I wanted to use the horn, but hit the signal cancel instead. I'm thinking about doing the same, but I don't have auto-cancelling signals to worry about. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Is not having ABS on our bikes really hindering society? I do need the government telling me how big of a soda I can have, though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Riding quotes

    There are plenty of deaths can that be attributed to the mishandling of anything. Just because you don't see the point in it doesn't mean your opinion should affect me. Besides the recreational aspect of it, as long as there are bad people in the world intentionally harming innocent people, I'm glad to have something to protect myself and my family. A hashtag and some Facebook profile picture thing don't do much for me, nor does waiting for help to arrive. I didn't turn it into anything. I mentioned something about common terminology between motorcycles and guns, someone said something about be able to talk about guns, and it went from there, including an ironically violent anti-gun sentiment and a picture equating guns to penis compensators. It's a hobby, like anything else we do.
  9. Riding quotes

    Boys and their motorcycles. Tens of millions of gun owners in the US, 99.9% of them never fired in anger. I find that those most strongly opposed to firearms are those who have never handled one or learned to shoot properly, and most of them that give it a try begrudgingly admit that it's enjoyable.
  10. From what I can tell from YouTube videos, my VFR really needs an XSR900 parked next to it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Riding quotes

    It's bad enough that I now live where I have to travel to shoot anywhere besides indoor ranges. Not being able to enjoy the fun and challenge of shooting would be almost as bad as not being able to enjoy the fun and challenge of riding a motorcycle. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. 2015 vfr800 deluxe red, good price?

    I rode Three Sisters while in Austin for the races. I've been on the track and it was still a humbling experience, but I can't wait until I head out there again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Am I the only one who didn't know...

    That's one thing that lets me know I haven't pulled the clutch in far enough if I'm holding it in. It's much more useful in that respect for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Leaving the fold.....

    I stand on the pegs when I'm about to hit a big bump, that's about the only time it makes sense for me. I've seen a GS rider do it while cutting through a ditch and going up the ferry ramp. I don't have the ground clearance to get through a ditch, so I dunno. I did catch the ferry pretty often with him, though. Friendly guy, though he scoffed at the idea that my VFR isn't a full-on sport bike. He did offer to let me try his GS out, though. I wish I could have, it looked super comfy. I could imagine 1000-mile-days on that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. That sissy bar doesn't look as ridiculous as you'd think a sissy bar on a CB would. My wife would love that. I like the color as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
