  1. Welcome to the asylum from the land of interesting weather. You obviously have great taste in mc's. Condolences on the tip-over. Now you can forget about keeping your machine flawless and focus on the pure joy of riding. Your machine looks fabulous.
  2. Welcome to the asylum Wot4y. You obviously have great taste in mc's. We would love to see a picture of your machine to prove to us you are not a figment of our imagination. Regarding the vibratios, although I've only had fifth gens, a common problem with all five of them has been a vibration caused by worn steeringhead bearings. Here is the test: while the bike is on it's centerstand, with the front wheel off the ground, move the handlebars slowly from stop to stop. If you feel a detend in the middle, that is the sign of worn out head bearings. The recomendation I've been given is to install tapered roller bearings. Hope the fix is that simple for you.
  3. Speaking of biased, I do not see the best generation in the fastest color: that would be a fifth gen in red.

  5. I thought there was a way to change the display but after looking through the owner's manual, I found that the only change possible is for the temp guage to show F ( Fahrenheit) or C (Celsius). So for changing from mi to km you are out of luck.

    A beautiful machine in a beautiful spot. I've been in that spot and taken a similar pic. A wonderful place to ride a mc.
  7. I agree 100%. Controling the air stream around the neck area is what makes my Schuberth C3 Pro seem so quiet to me.
  8. Re: The above pictures VFRs do get around.
  9. That's a pretty machine. At $2525 US price is pretty also. You are wise to stay away. However, looking at the In My Garage list, you are missing a VFR. What's wrong with you?!

  12. Quite sad. Condolences to all. I could not invision a more suitable sendoff for any dedicated rider.
  13. On the bolts... I've had problems with allan wrenches twisting out of the bolt holes. An inquiry let to someone suggesting filing the business ends of the wrench so it is flat and perpendicular to the shaft. I found this technique helpful.

    New us for a Givi tail bag

    A bar on a bike. All it needs is a feeding tube to the rider.
