  1. Good pics! Ride while you can. Days are numbered here, too.
  2. The 'Oprah' bags look really good. They integrate well with the overall looks of the bike. Lots of discussion about top cases. They are the ugliest and most versatile thing you can add to your bike. They do disrupt the lines and looks of the bike, but, you can carry stuff.... If you're touring or commuting, I felt the top case was ugly but necessary. If you get one you won't regret it. And... you can always take it off if you don't use it. I planned to have mine on only for long tours but after getting used to it I've had top cases on all my bikes.
  3. Carb cleaner will dissolve it with very little effort. You may use quite a bit to clean things up but it works.
  4. Zoinks!@! Whatever you hit had some serious mass to make a hole like that. Better that it hit the bike and not you. Consider that your lucky day. Buy a lottery ticket. 😉
  5. I'd check the main fuse. It's there for exactly that reason to prevent frying the entire system. Should be a cheap fix - one fuse or fuseable link.
  6. This is a rider with their priorities in order. 🙂
  7. Yes, you're probably right. I guess I'll add a torque wrench to my arsenal of tools. 🙂
  8. It's a bit of an odd suggestion, isn't it? Both my new bikes have the same recommendation listed - replace the bolts. I don't even own a torque wrench and haven't replaced those bolts on any of my bikes over the years. I just do them up 'tight-tight' but not 'too tight' and haven't had an issue. I guess technically they could work their way out from vibration and use but it seems incredibly unlikely. Another of life's calculated risks that I'm willing to make. 🙂
  9. Hi superfunkomatic, Thank you for your donation of 25.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  10. Wow! Looks great. Very thorough going-over of the bike. I'd like to rebuild mine at some point. Looks like a lot of little bits that haven't aged well. Mine has been sitting since 2004, so I guess I'd have my work cut out for me. I'm enjoying seeing how all the parts are removed and the rebuild.
  11. Indeed. Really enjoyed your company at the meet last summer, too. Our paths will cross again. :)
  12. Well, as luck would have it, my original statement holds true. I wasn't sure if I'd be going in spite of already booking the hotel room, and, I won't be attending after all. That will free up one room at the hotel if someone is still interested. I'll contact the hotel today and let them know. I hope everyone has a great ride and time. Mike
  13. Booked. I'm not sure if I can actually make it yet but I've booked a room just in case.
  14. Love the roads around that area and of course Highway 1. Great riding and scenery. Thanks for sharing.
  15. So, in the summer I sold my 2005 VFR and I bought this... (CRF250L) because I couldn't get an Africa Twin CRF1000L. Then in December, I figured the bike wouldn't be coming, so I bought this. (Honda Ridgeline). Then a week later in December, I got a call from the local Honda dealer, "your bike is here...." So I ended up getting this... Africa Twin CRF1000L. Now I have a problem... MBD. So I have to get rid of this... XL1000V Varadero. :)
