So you're missing out on that whole foreign Country/adventure thing? We just point at what we want and hold out a hand full of cash, we sometimes get change back even!

Default I had such high hopes for you but... weight vs mass

Don't use Wikipedia go to How stuff works. In science splitting hairs matters. There is a big difference between weight and mass. Look up in physics book. Just think about that an astronaut has the same mass on the moon and the earth but his weight on each planet is vastly different.

Well, exactly. You can buy an extra loud set of horns

(50 bucks) a horn relay ( 6 bucks?) and install it yourself. Even I was able to do it. Presto! Noise when you want it, no noise when you don't.

Wow. The whole point of horns is to warn someone that they are about to do something that could get somebody hurt. All other uses (Saying hi, reminding people that the light has changed, or just expressing annoyance,) are misuse of a horn. Has it gotten so bad in Houston that they just ASSUME you're being an ******* and just start shooting? I've been in Houston traffic, and I thought it had some of the most clueless cagers I'd ever seen. I had no idea that they were that hostile too.

Isn't the riding season (for sport riders, anyway) about three months in Seattle? It won't see pavement till June.

Put a tray under it if it's a Harley. Heh, heh. Sorry. It was just hanging there, I had to swing at it.

I think you have taken on a full time job, with no exit strategy in sight.
