I've also had bad experiences with overfilling... Not because of the sidestand but because of just what you said: a bad reading. I had an 800cc boulevard that told me during a long trip (after 15-20...

Do you find you burn through oil quickly when you're doing that though? I'd be worried about it drinking it's entire capacity during a single run (like what happened to me).

Alright. We just got the bike, so I'm not sure when it reads accurately (hot, cold) I'm glad it's not one of the window ones. I find those take forever after you've been running the bike to let the...

Will do! Hah. I should've thought of that for my last trip.

I wouldn't mind doing 55 the whole way. We'd be in no rush. That said, when I went cross country last summer I did my fair share of 80mph on state roads (on a 1100 shadow). I did try to avoid the...

Hey guys, so I screwed up royally. I can sit here and chalk it up to not being familiar with the new bike, having a noise-muffling full face helmet on, or a handful of other things, but really it was...
