  1. I would not live where I do (with a fancy pants garage), nor have the friends that I have without VFRD. Thank you.
  2. until

    I survived... ...the Iron Wok.
  3. I had to take off the top triple tree so every thing could go where it wanted to go, but nothing major.
  4. A little fiddly, but not hard. the right throttlemeister mount was too big to fit inside the bars. I attached it to a drill mounted in a vice and slowly ground away just enough for a friction fit. gonna need a slide hammer to get it out. total investment - under a hundred bones.
  5. Not that I can tell. The 6th gen after Vtec feels to me exactly like a 5th gen at all revs. Here are some comparison photos between stock clip on and superbike bars. Not as much difference as I suspected going in. You can also see that they are the length of a throttlemeister wider than stock.
  6. I am pretty sure the limiting factor with the bars moved closer to the front is fouling the fairing at lock. I look to have just enough room for levers. I also think these look wider than they are because they are buck nekkid. lines are sorted. cables are prolly OK. adapting the throttlemeisters to the bars will be the real challenge.
  7. stock: Armstrong Military bike bars: Superbike bars: Gonna go with these and see what it feels like. I am very interested in how the extra leverage will affect cornering.
  8. Hello chaps. Without going into too much detail, i recently rode a 2016 BMW R1200 GS 1800 miles from New York City to new Orleans. I fell in love with the bike as everyone told me I would, and I wanted to buy one. Then, on the flight home, I remembered how ugly it was, how expensive it was and how complicated it was. I also realized that I had a perfectly good 6th gen in my garage that I had already decided to make it my long distance bike. So I started poking around and asking questions about LSL, etc. While I was looking, my hand was sorta forced as to what direction to go in, by me finding a set of mounting brackets for 75 bucks. I am not asking "what fits", or "do i have to change xyz", I am asking about preference. The bars depicted in where i am so far were just at hand, so I threw them on there. I have heard CB919 bars and the LSL low bars are groovy. I was hoping to find the superbike bars of my youth with the graceful curves, because I know that they put my hand where I like 'em, but all I seem to find are the Emgo types and those are OK, but i dont know.....If I can get this thing half as comfy as that BMW was, I will be putting a lot of miles on it this year. Please tell what you like and dont like, what worked and what was a problem. Sorry if this topic was done do death before.
  9. these should be hitting my showroom in a month or two. If I get a test ride, I will report. (but they will be pricey) Harley Davidson LiveWire
  10. Man oh man, how I want a Pacific Coast for commuting. Ugly but in all honesty, prolly the best commuter of all time .....hell, I'm going on Craigslist to try an find one NOW
  11. Certain things in life: death, taxes, Honda and Seiko automatics.
  12. Seller will say to return them for full refund, knowing full well that you are not going to send 10 dollar bulbs to china. D.C.R.B. Dubious Chinese Rusty Bulbs.
