  1. Where Are The SoCal Rides?

    I might be up for this, but can't commit until a bit later. How many bikes so far?
  2. Where Are The SoCal Rides?

    If I was only retired...
  3. Let's Ride Sat or Sun 6/10 or 6/11

    I was out of town this past weekend, but would have liked to attend. Looked like a great ride!
  4. Where Are The SoCal Rides?

    If you build it, they will come...
  5. Viffer from the air

    What kind of drone is it?
  6. I had thought my 8th gen was sporty...

    Yeah it's sporty, but it's also a torture rack.
  7. Heli Bars for 8th Gen - need R&D bike

    Might as well get the Motopump's risers for less.
  8. Missing parts for raising the seat

    You need a trip back to the dealer, unfortunately.
  9. Ducati supersport

    That's a great dealership. I test rode a '17 Multistrada 1200S there a couple weeks ago - a nice bike, but not for me.
  10. Debadge Akra Titanium?

    Yep, it should just peel right off.
  11. Some BMW and Ducati bikes also have cornering lights. It'd be nice if other manufacturers could start having them as well. (Are you reading this Honda?)
  12. Nice - my accessories (panniers and top-box) took almost 2 months total to arrive piecemeal at the dealer.
  13. Looks like another 2017 change, my '15 lights up red as well.
  14. Satisfaction Rating of 8th Gen.

    I'm very happy with mine, though I did need to add Motopump's 1.25" bar risers to put my old frame in a comfortable state. Heated grips are great, and a heated seat would be nice - though there's a Corbin option for that and better comfort as well. On longer (2+ hours) freeway drones, I find my neck getting a little sore from having to angle my neck up so I have a straight sight of the road. I think something like a Laminar Lip addition to the windscreen might help with that though. Also for longer freeway drones I needed to get an AirHawk for the seat, as without it some serious monkey butt would set in. That's about it for ergonomics. I have not yet had a situation where the ABS or TC kicked in. The adjustable shocks, center stand and heated grips are worth the price of admission for the Deluxe model.
  15. Tank Grips / Pads

    Whereabouts in LA are you? I'm in the Southbay/Torrance area and get up to the Rock Store and the Crest (ACH) quite often. So if you don't mind hanging with a slow old guy, I can show you those sometime. ~Ron
