Default Right about keeping track of the Racial Stuff

I'm afraid the racist joke went right over my head, since I have a black bike does that make me diverse? It's so hard to keep track of these things....[/quote]

My understanding is that it is OK to have a black bike as long as you are not trying to intimidate voters in Philadelphia. My bike is Red so as long as I don't try to ram Communist/Socialist ideas up someone else’s exhaust pipe it is OK for me to own one even though I hold right of Conservative Libertarian views. Owning a White bike, being middle aged with a Military background does not preclude ownership, but if at anytime White Brothers racing exhaust is installed on said White Bike you are begging for racial trouble of some kind. It's funny but the least racially sensitive/racist folks I know are middle aged white guys. Proud to be a member of the human/motorcycle race.

Fortunately I live in The Peoples Republic of Pugetopolis where bending over backwards to accommodate every clown in the circus is a Liberal Badge of Honor...

Well Seru, that's a heck of a screen you have there!

You planning on selling some advertising space on it?



But seriously - do you get any wind at all, and how tall are you?

6 ft even. And yeah it's a big screen but the vents allow plenty of flow. I just get tired of fighting the wind on all day desert rides. The stock screen would have beaten me to death before I made Moab.

I can NOT tolerate a screen I have to look-through when riding in the rain.

Just me, that's all.
Ditto. I tried 3 aftermarket screens trying to get comfortable. Then I put on an MP Cycles 'sport screen. It puts clean air right at my helmet; with little or no pressure on my chest. It's 1/2 the size of the OEM.

How's that giant top box working out for you, Zawa? I put the Givi box on mine and spent 2 days trying to get the suspension reset so my bike didn't wander and wobble at speed. I finally took all the preload out of the back, maxed the front, and it settled back down again. At least you won't need a pickup truck anymore!

I guess the air is thinner in the stratosphere because I haven't noticed the box at all.
