I've never understood people stealing plates.. Also couldn't you just rivet it/lock it to your bike? I thought you needed to leave it on or you will get a ticket for not having it - or is that...

Thanks.. A few more questions...

Have you ever paid a muni meter/used a holder/etc.? Or just find parking like on Broadway where I dont think you have to pay next to that new green bike lane?

Well I have an X-challenge and...

Personally, I think they are great bikes, the xmoto is cool sort of a refined or grown up supermoto. The Rotax engine is second to none and the overall fit and quality of these bikes is great.

That would be nice. Most of you guys not only get better areas to ride but you can carry guns too...(legally anyway)

Great Ride.. I did it 7 years ago

Everyone who has commented above has been spot on. I have a few things to echo/add for you.

I would also like to learn how this is done...

Especially if it is easy-ish... Are people using the aftermarket Touratech springs? Does Ohlins make springs for these shocks?

Thanks in advance!

Take the Dr.'s advice above.

And that's coming from a guy with an X-Challenge and other fuel hungry bikes. That is the only thing that will approach 60mpg (sort-of). If you ride like my grandmother dives that is. Something in...

I've read that elsewhere, for now I'm gonna keep it where it is but I agree it is vulnerable hanging down there. I haven't see photo's of a better relocation spot (or if that requires a new length of...

The previous owner had it calibrated for a 220 lb rider, I am about 210 with gear so it felt about right. Also it was set to not increase the seat hight as the stock Ohlins apparently did, so this...
