  1. I had one with the perf leather sleeves. After a few years the leather rotted from sweat. I was lucky to find one without leather on Craigs list for $20 last year and snapped it up. I don't think the protection is on par with a leather suit, or a textile suit, but those are too dam hot in summer.
  2. I think you can still download XP. Not sure if this is legit, but look around. https://isoriver.com/windows-xp-iso-download/
  3. I look at this kind of stuff as tip over protection, not crash protection. Will hopefully help if you fall over in a parking lot. Pitch it away with any speed, and all bets are off.
  4. I had an '03 Tuono and an '07. They were V twins. Fun bikes, fast and good handling. The Rotax motors are pretty bullet proof.
  5. What masses are going to spend $28k on a bike? That's pretty steep. Not me. But I love my Monster 1200. Weighs about 100 pounds less than my sold VFR, and has much more torque and HP. Just what I wanted. Less weight, more powah. I can live without 200 HP. And it cost about $11k with tax, used for 2xxx miles. So barely used, and a lot more affordable.
  6. Yep. The world I grew up in is gone.
  7. Sorry to see them go, they were excellent. Not long ago they had talk in the mag about putting all the old issues on line. Guess that won't be happening. Bummer. I used to get 7 or 8 paid mags plus a couple freebies. All I get now is Cycle World which is down to quarterly, and the AMA magazine for members. Almost all the rest have folded. I still miss Cycle News, the web site is not the same as opening a paper mag.
  8. That's one of them fancy Italian VFRs. 😀 I think I'd want 3 or 4 days to do 1,000 miles on a bike.
  9. I don't want to run over the cute little disease bags. But will not make a sudden swerve and risk crashing to avoid them dancing in front of me. Usually they dance out of the way on their own. I guess I have run over a snake or 2, come to think of it.
  10. Unplug wires. Remove part 2, remove bulb and replace. Helps to have small hands. But much less work.
  11. You have terrible luck with animals, Max. Trees too? I don't think I have ever hit any critter bigger than a gopher. Knock wood.
  12. This is what happens when you do a real nice job and pay attention to details. You're an overnight sensation and it only took a bunch of years. 😄 Congrats Seb.
  13. Makes me wonder about my old 98 that I sold late last year with 82,xxx miles. Was running good, but still on the original shock, and could have used cosmetic work for scratches and stuff. Hope the guy is enjoying it still.
