Thumbs down Joe Rocket boots

Bought a pair of Joe Rocket "Aqua Pro" boots. Sounds like something that might be water resistant...wrong I have flip flops that keep your feet drier.
Everything else seems to be "get what you paid for" quality.

Corbin Seat for the KLR. Hard as a rock. It transferred, or magnified, the vibration to my butt. My butt was actually raw after a long day of riding. The only way it was better than a wooden plank from Home Depot is the lack of splinters. GET A RUSSELL!

Wow, my ass said it wast the best seat of the bunch for my bikes. KLR was slow, but with that corbin seat I could ride it all day. Takes at least 1000 miles to break in.

Between Stock Airhead, Sergents Airhead, stock KLR, Stock Transalp, Renazco Transalp, the Corbin KLR was my favorite.

The price was for a factory rebuild, plus 1450 to 1550. I rode it home from the shop, it's about 3 miles and it is already leaking oil.

Total pile of ...

Hawkeoiler: A WARNING

I purchased this product from Hawkeoiler, 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, an automatic motorcycle chain oiler, 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 threatened to get help, he blocked my emails. His site is still operational, so he is probably scamming overseas buyers.

Over FOUR YEARS later, I'm still waiting for the Hawkeoiler. Be warned...

fulmar helmet

I bought this helmet to ride in the woods with so I would not tear up the Shoei. on the tight trails my helmet bangs off the branches.

the first time I raised the visor...It broke off in my hand.

it was a flea bay purchase with no returns allowed.

NOW I KNOW......if you buy something cheap, you get something cheap.

Nolan N102. Pieces / covers started falling off the hinge / visor mechanism. A pain in the ass to get the visor off for cleaning. Shitty sunvisor scratching the main visor. Threw the damn thing away.

1999 Aprilia Pegaso 650, hands down the most difficult son of a bitch I have ever owned.

Strangely I've had F650's and even those produced on the Aprilia line didn't have these problems. I'm thinking that the PO probably seriously messed up the Aprilia I owned...but I'm taking no chances and will never, ever allow another Aprilia into my garage.

It was 28 years before I bought another Ford. I can hold a grudge!
My first car was a 72 Torino hand-me-down. Puke Green In 1986, I let a friend borrow it, he crashed it , and the bottom of the trunk just fell out. A few bits of paint and dirt were all that was holding the rusty bits together. I guess 14 years was a good run for a Ford of this era.

If this tells you anything, I don't learn fast.....Never own an Audi out or warranty.

The '97 M3 just takes oil changes and tires. Great Automobile!
