One of those camels was heard to say, "Hey there, aren't you Pluric? Looking for a date?"

Push and hold both buttons on the dash until the time starts blinking, then one of the buttons advances the clock and one changes between minutes and hours. I can't remember which.

Mine did the same to me the other day. Went for a ride and when I got home it was 1 1/2 later than I expected. I think its a dealers way to havefun with their customers.

Hard start

I had a hard start when I took the bike from the dealer.
I turn the key on and try to start before the bike did the complete check in. The mechanic said this is the reason for the hard start.
In fact the bike started but with lot of smoke and petrol smell.

Just my two centavos…

If you put the 5 minute mark in a loop that would be me in sand.

I also liked it at 4:30 when people are running for their lives.

I think I would prefer to slide down a 50 foot razor blade than ride in that shit.
