I can't disagree with that, I fortunately only hit what I'm aiming at. I hope I never need the who part. The guys who told me they liked the FN better have military background ,maybe they used them more than the LEO guys.I just can't decide, which is my biggest problem.I'd also like to get a new varmit rig. With all the stuff happening with wack jobs shooting people, I'm worried I won't be able to get the high cap sidearm.Not that I need it,just another toy,which we all know you can never have enough toys.

I found that the seat sloped forward too much. Hate that.

Pretty much every bike's factory seat is like that. Had the same issue with my FZ1, Bandit, and Strom.

You guys just don't weigh enough to compress the real shock to where the seat is level. I hope to experience your problem some day.

Yup, my experience too. Luckily my massive balls counterbalance this and I'm left level and comfortable.

It sure looks like that oil filter might be in harms way for serious off road work. Maybe it's the photo, anyway nice ride.

Wow. The sounds the ice falling off the trees is making is unnerving and has awaken me for the second time. I hope anyone who has to go to work stays safe out there, it's going to be a mess out this way.

At 10:30 last night I heard my car alarm going off. Went to see my very large sugar maple was covered with ice and lying on top of my van. CRAP!!!

I went the other way - sold all the M&Ps and went to Glocks. Interesing, tho, that when I went to TDI last fall, more M&Ps there than anything. And me with a 1911

All except the DRZ400, every time I rode that thing, I felt like I was sliding off the back.
