Unless the downshift to second is really loud, it's completely normal to have loud downshifts into first and second, even if one is pretty good about synchronizing the downshift- the ratios are the...

2009, 270 miles on it.

When I bring it back to the dealership for the 600 (ish) mile head-retorque (if they still do that!), I'll leave 'em a little list:

My local traffic folks installed sensor lights that don't work well.

I'll stop, count to 30, and then go. I also have copies of the letters I've sent complaining about the problem- so even if a...

I was pulled over once because a policeman saw my visor up and "didn't see my sunglasses" underneath; it was obviously imperative that I have on eye protection. During the course of the discussion...

I'd get it. I really like the V-4 motor, almost as much as I like the flat twin!

With that said, my 750 Interceptor's cams were completely shot when I bought the bike, and my V65 Sabre's were at...

Depending on who asks: to the co-worker who knows better, said in the best deadpan Steve Martin I can do: "Yes, I do." Conversation done.

If I don't feel like riding to Deal's, then 164 is great from Lisbon to Zoar (Ohio, of course!)
I like 555 too, but that's another 2 hours south, and much more poorly maintained.

I just got off the phone with mine. 600 mile service complete, cable snagging caused by a guard that wasn't located correctly, probably from initial de-crate.
