  1. My 2007 RWB VFR 800

    Welcome aboard! We have quite a few members from your side of the Maple Curtain.
  2. McCruise for Gen 8 VFR?

    It came on my bike but was not working and I had no manual. Got it working with a couple of emails and phone calls. Their instructions and support should make it pretty easy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. McCruise for Gen 8 VFR?

    Have it on my sixth gen. They are great fun to talk to. If they don’t show an eighth gen, call an d see what they can do. Can’t have changed much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. RC30 Arai, who's gonna buy it?

    I'm with you on that! My last two have come from closeout sales. My RF1200 was about $450. Had to sell myself on the cost per year.
  5. 2018 PRE-Ride to the Spring Memorial Ride

    The DiamondBack Lodge is single rooms only and motorcycle only. Maybe they didn't get the picture. I hope they're not booked up cause I'm not in yet.

    So you're sayin we'll be on the road before 10:00?
  7. What to bring

    When I travel, I carry several days worth of moisture wicking long johns, a pair of shorts or jeans, and tennis shoes. The underwear can be rinsed and dried easily and the shorts and jeans are only worn in the evening when I'm off the bike. Easy to do a week on the road with no laundry. I wear mesh gear in the heat of summer. The rest of the year, I have perforated leather. I haven't even used the mini top box that came with my bike.
  8. I gave up last month and ordered tires for both of my bikes. The folks at Riders Domain (Jake Wilson) sent me a credit when the price dropped a couple of weeks later. I used it to get a tinted shield for my new helmet.

    Looks like a nice place. The big deal with Little Switzerland is the view. It is so rewarding after a long day to watch the sunset with a beverage. Are you going to make the event this year Mike?

    Meet in Franklin Sunday before and pull out Monday whenever Rob gets ready. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. RC30 Arai, who's gonna buy it?

    Last month, I sent that link to one of our members who has an RC30 thinking he might have an interest. He replied back within the hour with a picture of the helmet in his hands. If I had the bike, I'd have the helmet.
  12. VFRD Spring Ride 2018 - INFO

    Just drill a hole in the bottom and let it take care of itself. Sorry, yes I have had a boat.

    All those blue squiggly lines and a 'sweet jump'! Who can resist?

    How else would I have more friends in Canada than I do in Alabama?
  15. Dubious Chinese Levers??

    I picked up a set for the cb500 from Motor-Pro on Ebay. They have adjustment for length which I liked better than the shorty. So far they are great. I've been buying a lot more stuff from Amazon lately because the prices are at least as good and the shipping has been shorter. I ordered several dubious Chinese parts for the 500 around Christmas and had to wait six weeks or more. I ended up canceling one that never showed up. The levers took about two weeks longer than they advertised on Ebay but they did communicate with me during the wait.
