I figured I would offer these Touratech Cylinder Guards to the Richmond/Hampton Roads ADV Riders first before listing in the Flea or CL. New w/shipping these cost $215
These have never been outside of my garage. I am selling them for $130 for the pair.

Again no connection, but I think I could get back and forth to the convenience store pretty quick on it.

I guess $6500 may put a slight dent in a $38,000 truck or it will buy the big tires and some mud goodies.

Last week Tom McGrath defended two motorcyclists who were charged with riding two abreast. For those who were not on the distribution list when this story first ran, it is considered reckless driving in Virginia for two motorcycles to ride next to each other in the same lane. In 48 of the 50 states it is perfectly legal. Only Vermont and Virginia make it illegal and only Virginia makes it punishable by up to 12 months in jail, a $2,500 fine and a loss of your operator’s license. In this case the two riders, one of whom has a commercial driver’s license, pulled up next to each other at a stop light in Crewe, Virginia. When the light turned green they started off together and then separated shortly thereafter. Because of the short distance traveled side-by-side, the judge felt that he had no choice but to find the evidence sufficient to convict both of reckless driving. However, upon being informed that this year there will be a bill before the General Assembly to repeal this prohibition, the judge agreed to continue the disposition until after the General Assembly session. Hopefully we will be successful.

Two weeks ago Jim Cannon and I drove up to Harrisonburg to meet with Delegate Tony Wilt about this issue. He is the Delegate for the Harrisonburg area and is a rider himself. I am happy to report that Delegate Wilt has graciously and enthusiastically agreed to carry a bill to amend the Code of Virginia to allow two motorcycles to travel abreast in the same lane. Being that there is absolutely no data from the 48 states which allow this practice to show that it is causing accidents, it does not seem appropriate to hang a reckless driving conviction around a law abiding citizen’s neck for an act that is not reckless. If you would like to thank Delegate Wilt for carrying this legislation for us he can be reached at DelTWilt@house.virginia.gov

As mentioned in an earlier post, Delegate Todd Gilbert has agreed to be the patron for our bill that will prohibit motorcycle only checkpoints in the Commonwealth of Virginia. It was unanimously agreed upon at this year's legislative round table that this bill was our number one priority this session. If passed it will put to an end the discriminatory practice of targeting motorcyclists with checkpoints such as the one conducted in Arlington this year during Rolling Thunder. For those who are unfamiliar with that checkpoint I have attached the article which was written about it earlier this year. If you would like to thank Delegate Gilbert for carrying this bill for us he can be reached at DelTGilbert@house.virginia.gov

I would again invite all who can to attend this year’s Lobby Day events. They will begin on Sunday January 15 at 12:00 pm. Virginia Coalition of Motorcyclists lobbyists will lead an informational meeting at the Holiday Inn Airport at 445 International Center Dr., Sandston, VA 23150 to discuss this year's legislation affecting motorcyclists. We will discuss the two bills mentioned above, and as always there will be numerous bills submitted at the last minute which will negatively affect motorcycling. As these bills are filed we will be able to identify them and discuss them at Lobby Day so that we can convince the legislators why they are bad bills. Those who participated in last year’s Lobby Day remember the bill that we killed that would have prohibited children under eight from riding on a motorcycle as a passenger. With the help of Virginia motorcyclists we were able to make the argument that since no children under eight had been killed on a motorcycle in the past ten years, we as parents were doing a pretty good job of deciding when our children were old enough to safely ride as passengers on a motorcycle. The bill was unanimously defeated in sub-committee.

After the informational session, attendees will enjoy a free homemade BBQ dinner made by Stewart Newton and provided by several Virginia motorcycle rights organizations including ABATE of Virginia and the Virginia Bikers Association.
On Monday the 16th we leave the Holiday Inn at 8:00 am sharp for our annual trip to the Capitol. After lobbying our legislators, we will attend the opening of the House of Delegates daily session and be recognized from the floor. Afterwards, Tom McGrath's Motorcycle Law Group takes everyone to Penny Lane Pub for lunch as a thank you for coming to support Virginia Motorcyclists.

For more information you can call VCOM at (800) 437-9434. For Room Reservations call (804) 236-1111 and ask for the VCOM rate.

As always if you have any comments or questions about anything that I have written please feel free to contact me. I hope to see you in January.

The scarey $hit is over......

Hand drilling/tapping into stuff that would be very hard, if not impossible, to replace is done. Just need to fabricate a bracket, make up some RS232 cable adapters that will accommodate the pinouts of the Z-axis combination box (different manufacturer than my scale), and we're done.







Higworld: your bike is going on the lift tomorrow.

Freak: Got your PM and will check with the wife to see just what out Xmas schedule is. I'm been "out of touch" out here, but know we will be leaving Saturday to head to MD for Xmas. If you care to get it by here Friday PM, I'll jump on it right after I get Hig's bike running.

Guy, I heard that digital indicators are the gateway drug to full computer drive. Is that the next step?

Does anyone know of a good powder coating shop in town? I'm re-doing a CB750 & have a need for a good shop who is experienced with powder coating bike frames & parts. The best option in town I've been able to find is Hanover Powder Coating, but I'm unaware of the quality of their work. I also found Figure Finishing in Manassas Park, & they specialize in this sort of work. They're a last resort if there's nothing good in RIC. Thanks guys.

Brian

LOL!

No, don't think so.... especially on my budget. Besides, having a computer do the work kinda takes the craftsmanship away from it, and that's half the fun of it - IMHO, of course.

On another note, got the quill scale mounted and working. Had to make a bracket, but that was pretty easy using the DRO to insure good cuts.

This part of the chapter is done with the installation. Just need to make up the adapter cables for the combination box and we'll be done.

From the Morton's Newsletter:

We've got some special events planned for the winter, so keep an eye on our EVENTS page. First up is our January 21 CLUB DAY, with special savings for members of the BMW Bikers of Metropolitan Washington and Richmond BMW Riders. And February 11 brings us the return of our annual CHILI COOK-OFF, where you can pit your favorite recipe against other competitors. Or just come in and sample the different chilis! And we've opened registration for our 2012 Spring Fling Rally, which promises to be bigger and better than our inaugural Rally this past May. You won't want to miss it!
