I'll have to try them. Triumph makes some pretty good heated grips too. That's about the only thing that bothers me is my fingers get cold.

I would have thought so too, but I risk divorce after every emission.



I borrowed her car the other evening and two hours after I came home she went into it to fetch something and came screaming back about how I fouled her car and how she had to roll all the windows down to air it out overnight. Sheesh!

My loud farts TAKE lives.....I can Knock flies off a s**t wagon with my butt-air



A sardine, hot sauce, onion and garlic sandwich and some brussel sprouts washed down with some Full Sail Ale and watch out.



I farted in my coveralls once and when I bent over, got a full on nose hit...



Thought I was going to die!

We got over 16 inches of rain in November, capped off by 4 or 5 inches of snow.



I didn't quite hit the 2 k mark this month I'm afraid

Air horns are better. You don't need an air tank. Fiamm sells horns that work with a small vacuum pump (about the size of a small, travel-size can of shaving cream). You can also buy very effective electric horns, but the air horns are better. And they are much better than loud exhausts.



I love the "the driver might panic if you use your horn and jerk the wheel and swerve right into you" posts. In 45 years of riding I've never seen that reaction.

I was "old school" about it forever, ridin' ain't for weenies and all but... now any time it's in the 60's I'm packin' em. They just take a sec to install. The cold/rain/winds weed out the posers (OK, maybe wiser, safer, whatever) already. You can still be "that Crazy Guy on a bike in this weather"... comfortably.



There is also a safety factor, slow movin' fingers don't help in dealing with the still wacky cages, you know of which I speak.



I always try to go to Bike Night when it rains. Thins out those I'm not interested in talking about bikes with anyways.
