Crash handle. He doesn't have a guardian bell, so he needs to be prepared to throw it down.

Hold it for 3 or 4 days and try again

It is called gut memory. It is kinda like muscle memory. Your gut knows how much it is supposed to weigh and whatever you do, it remembers and will make itself heavier so it can stay at that weight.

i had this exact setup and did the CDR and part of the UTBDR this summer - it works OK, but it doesn't really like to turn, when I first put the tires on I thought I had broken something

For the ladies out there looking for gear for ladies, Aerostitch is making Roadcrafters in wimminz sizes now.

We got my wife a Revit jacket a couple of years ago after going through a Coretech mesh and a TourMaster textile jacket. The Revit fits her the best, and she's got ... ah ... you know ... big thingies.

The Dina baby pic is off the cute scale! It looks like she is going to fall over with that heavy helmet on.

I still like the front suspension though.

I'm sure they wanted to show off the single sided swing arm. Probably corbin.

Yep. Corbin.

http://www.corbin.com/honda/hrunebag.shtml

Edit- from their site, "At the bottom we mold close around the stock exhaust system and sweep back to show off the trick rear wheel assembly"

All that for just about $2,000.00
