Default Yeah, I know, too-many-hyphens.

Naploleon bar-end mirrors. they're absolutely awesome on a naked bike. They give you great vision, they're extemely adjustable, and you can buy them one at a time, if you ever just-happen to lay-it-down.

Default Because it fun.

Yeah, there are a billion motorcycle toopics out there that we can argue and b!tch about. But, then, we gerenally get caught up, in our own opinions, and start arguing and b!tching.



I just figured this sort of thing helps us all, share some useful information and things (that others might not have thought about) and fine some common-ground, for a change.



Now, would you also care to complain about my syntax, too.

I love those nets, but what I really want is a bike you can attach them to without risking 4 acres of painted plastic.

Default Yes, but...

Negitive feed-back is only good when it is appropriate. The Spartan boy and the fox, is something to chew-on.



Things like sex-guilt - that's gotten millions of young men and women married for all the wrong reasons, for centuries - is a perfect example.



And, "Damn it Billy! That's a stupid thing to think" has destroyed millions of healthy, creative minds.



So, negative feed-back is a mixed bag, at best.

Binoculars!!! Gotta see them coppers before they see me. The not yet invented helmet binocular holder. My arms get way to sore when trying to stablize those things at 75+.

Damn! Beat me to it!!! The Givi bags are extremely well made, bombproof, and very very useful. Who would have thought the Italians had it in them? Oh, but of course I was missing one screw and one nut (different sizes) from the mounting kit, so perhaps that counts as the Italian quirk. I went down hard last year and my givi side bags saved me and my bike from a lot of damage. And the bag is still useable after the crash and slide! Beautiful!



And I also wear the firstgear jacket and pants.



Please tell me you don't ride an '01 VFR?

Duofold base layer clothing. How else can I ride in Michigan this month, without spending hundreds on electric clothes???

Let's see. the war surplus 14inch smooth jawed Stilson wrench I stole from work that was still wrapped in cosmoline and wax paper after 40 years. Works for pipe fittings, nuts and bolts, opening large valve wheels and if you close the jaws it makes a good hammer, you can even use the smooth sides of it as a base for cutting valve packing. If you use it nose down you can open 55gal. drums with it. Amazing.



On a M/C related note, TourMaster Elite gloves. I've had a pair for 15 years and though they're worn through now they're still warm. Also Joe Rocket Ballistic 4.0 suits warm as toast, waterproof and well padded but cheap compared to everything else.
