  1. Good for you getting it to fire first time. That noise is familiar on my 2010, though my bike may not be as loud. As you noted, they are typically buried under plastics/tank/etc... on the standard bike. At this point I'd say "works as intended".
  2. I have a set of Road Smarts waiting to be spooned on. Curious about grip now that I've seen this. Have loved the Road Sports so far, wearing very well.
  3. I've had some personal things come up preventing my being there, and it looks like attendance would be about 3 people in total. Calling it off.
  4. Hahaha, is this seriously only going to be 3 people?
  5. Also, heads up in UK. Looks to be paint code r342c. https://www.ebay.com/itm/255668667767?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=3NBl_CX-S4a&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=mifTwA_JS0m&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  6. Please post here if you're planning on attending.
  7. Alright all, Looks like the Super 8 in Harrison Arkansas will be ground zero. They are currently at 25% occupancy for these days. I have not been able to get a straight answer on a block of rooms reserved, so it's up to you! I'm finding rates at $77/day pretty common. Suggest you book soon. I'll be arriving a bit early in order to burn up some tires. Cheers and see you in a few weeks.
  8. Central coast of... where? Remember, this is a global site. 😉
  9. Oh, nice to see this back in the works. Following!
  10. Short answer, yes. But not as much as you may imagine. Panniers not much difference, but can feel top box a bit.
  11. Just did the same for here in the Appalachian mountains. Raw video, but shows where the positioning would be without the "fish eye" wide angle. https://youtu.be/geDts60ZC64
  12. Good stuff! Black marks in the turns are a real thing on these 1200s. Haha!
  13. OK, well, since nobody is saying "NO" on the Super 8, I'll call them today and see about a block of rooms at a discount.
  14. Good to know about the Angels... The difficulty for me on tires is how quickly I go through them. I do about 2-3 sets per year when I'm able to ride as much as I'd like. This big, heavy bike, with a big, heavy rider who thinks he's a "fast boi" doesn't allow for long life for rubber. The RS2's were on fire sale... I think I got the set for $210? If I get 2500+ miles out of them, might be my new all-time favorites. haha!
  15. Looking lovely, Skids! Nice work.
  16. Good Lawd... this thing could tow a boat. Completely cast aluminum.
  17. A little birdie with mother Honda tells me there are 18 factory OEM candy prominence red 31L top boxes on the shelf in the US warehouse. There used to be 19. Also, there are a good number of OEM rear racks for sale on the Ebay right now, mainly shipping from UK. Prices are still stupid on both. The top cases are now P/N 08L71-MGE-C10ZA Just in case anyone is seeking these out like I am. 🙂
  18. SW Motech makes great stuff. I got about 6 years out of my tank bag with that mounting system. Looks good!
