Had the Adult Owned conversation at lunch today. Several people (women) were trying to defend this saying...

It got brought up because a co-worker is selling his decked out truck and started with the tag line "I'm a CPA so you know I'm meticulous...."

Trouble is, the core demographic that would buy this truck doesn't know what a CPA is, let alone being able to spell it.

OMB sez the "energy absorption tanks" saved your leg without a doubt in his EMT trained mind.

Pay attention Clark, Moose, Acerbis- they are safer when they are bigger and plastic!

Fuckin' A, tb, I feel exactly the same.
That's why they're my "lucky tanks"



Funny thing is,....they used to fit like shit.
Had to struggle, reef, and jack 'em up to get that last bolt in.

Now, they bolt right back on

Want to Buy!!

Want to Buy a tank bag. Nothing spectacular. Maybe the dusty one that's been sitting in the garage for a few seasons? I want one for my KLR and just need something that holds on and a clear pouch for map reading.

A 2006 with less than 8k miles on it. Someone should remove the adv stickers from the panniers. Sad.

Looking for a subframe for a 2008 990.....yes, I did it again Although I estimate that I was 100 lbs lighter than last year the welds and struts couldn't take the beating the COBDR dished out. The good news was it waited until the backside of the last big pass to give up.
Thank goodness the rest of that bike likes your abuse
