This might be a dumb question, but has anyone put a Kaoko throttle lock on their bike? My wife would like some relief on the 200+ mile rides.

I agree. Looked on CycleTrader for $22k bikes, bunch of used Harleys, and new entry level Can-Ams. To get this close to a GP bike, for $22k, isn't far fetched imho.

Thanks for the offer, as it is all ready for riding with the farkles! I think we will go new, since the C-A is out of the picture ( saving a TON of money).

I like both the R1 and the H2 as far as styling. I would probably go for the R1, as the H2's look may draw too much unwanted attention.

Would love to do a back-to-back demo ride with them both. :D

It looks as though they added waterproofing and easy switching between video/photo to the Roam2. So I would think not.

Hey Dan!
I found the 23's got cupping fairly soon, so I replaced them with the 23 GT's. Now those were great tires, and no cupping (10,000 on rear and over 11,000 on front). I now have the T-30's...

Pushing on a level surface is easy, un-level different story. Riding it over 5mph is easy, 5mph or under...different story.

Really, any issues with weight can be greatly reduced with usage.
