storage

Instead of storing it how about an ADV rider keeping it for a year and riding it?
I wouldn't mind riding an FJR for a year. I have garage space for another bike.

Rear Shock

I'm in need of a rear shock for my '03 XR400.

Anyone have one laying around? I hate ebay. Figured I'd check here before heading down the bid, bid, bid and bid again on ebay.

PR4 or PR4GT

PR4 GT or just PR4. I know the GT is for heavier bikes but not sure if we'd classify the RT as a heavier sport touring bike.
I have an 09 RT that will be needing new meats soon.
Thanks.

The 3M film MIGHT be holding too much heat in. I cracked one using film along with a brighter (hotter) bulb.

How about no electronic cruise control until 2013. Kaoko is fine provided you're riding with a bunch of GS's. If not I get complaints I can't hold a steady speed on the interstate.
