in terms of motorcycle crap,

the Airhawk air cushion in an effort to reduce fatigue and pain, was a real piece of crap..but certainly prompted me to put a rush on my order for a Russell Day Long.....which turns out to be the BEST piece of equipment i have ever purchased for any bike!

Worst I can recall in recent years was a Monster EZ-click remote for controlling my ipod while riding. Looked really cool out of the box wiht big fat buttons designed for gloved use, all rubberized and weatherproof-looking. Total POS, only responded to my touch about every 5th time and then no matter what button I'd pressed, the tunes would quickly ramp up to full volume and blast my head with sound

In recent memory... The "OEM" brand tool from Autozone, recommended in the 'airhead dark secrets' thread for removing the airhead connecting rods.

Absolute piece of shit.

Just the opposite for me. Controlling an iPod Mini and iPod Touch works great. Haven't had any problems except the receiver draws power (shorter battery life for iPod)

I am coming to terms with mine. It is not as good as the iclick or whatever it was called that it replaced. The replacement was necessary as the monster was the only remote I found that would work with a gen2 nano without getting in the way of the earphone jack.

I've discovered that there is a delay and that if I keep pushing the button it puts the nano in some strange state. I've learned to give a very quick press and wait a few seconds. Most of the time the desired action occurs.

I'd like something better, but at least this is now somewhat usable.

A Fender Squire Telecaster guitar.

Nice guitar, but the neck shrinks and the frets become little metal shards that dig into your hands. It costs the price of the guitar to replace the neck.

I should have stepped up to the Jap Fender but I just wanted a cheap guitar to play with.

Joe Rocket pants, any of them. Although the nice product rep lady keeps telling me about all the amazing improvements they've been making

Field sheer pants, i thought Joe rocket pants were bad. Replaced the first pair after just one week, the second pair is going in after 4 months, with a seam totally out about 6 inches long.

Tools, i've learned you get what you pay for, so i insist on the best

Not necessarily equipment, but Cycle Barn Lynnwood, I was told by their apparel manager that my 30k miles a year constituted abuse and that joe rockets shitty zippers weren't covered under warranty, I told him in the nicest way possible that i purchased 3 motorcycles from them in 14 months, and that for a price of 1 pair of pants i would continue to purchase from them. he told me to pound sand, i've not been back since.

Pissed Hawkeoiler

Sent Hawkeoiler the money, 27th June 2006. Still have the paypal code and receipt number. The amount paid was $A230.72; or $164.95 USD. I paid by Visa Card, through Paypal... and my order was processed 29th June 2006.

The product has never been sent, despite numerous emails to Hawkeoiler. The supplier claims to have re-sent the equipment, but has never done so. When I complained about this... and eventually threatened to get help, he blocked my emails. His site is still operational, so he is probably still scamming overseas buyers.

Nearly TWO YEARS later, I'm still waiting for the Hawkeoiler. Be warned...
... and YES, I blame John!

The REAL Bronco, though... those are THE shit! I loved mine!
I bought an 87 Bronco II new. Drove it all over WA, ID, and MT as a salesman. Towed my sand rail with it. Hunted out of it. Camped out of it. Got laid in the back with big boobied Italian girlfriend (okay that part wasn't easy). Put 125,000 miles on it.

Loved it. Great rig. Sorry about yours.

I thought I was the only one. My JoeRocket Pants lasted less than one year. The Elastic wore out, the zipper broke, and it was hardly waterproof.

Baja Designs passenger pegs for an XR650R. They don't line up parallel.
Called BD and they said that that's how they come! The right folds up under the sidecover, gouging it. For $130, they could have shaped the part so it fits and looks right.

I wasn't planning to put anyone back there, anyway. Just for emergencies (injured rider, etc.). Kept 'em.
