    So it sounds like it will be necessary to wait out the release of the Cool before attempting to draw any firm conclusions because at this point I'm not in agreement with your guy. And I get to not have to work or spend more $ on the bike 'till the Cool shows up and that's a big plus right now. :clap

    Draw conclusions about something you haven't tried?

    I want one of the cannabis versions, too. Oh, my glaucoma is doing...whatever it is glaucoma does. And it hurts real bad.

    Postie brought me a surprise envenope today! Installed on my HP Enduro and went for a 1/2 hour test ride. First impression is the motor feels to run smoother at all rpms constant throttle. Throttle response seems to have been somewhat improved with smoother acceleration, but this is difficult to define without more testing as this bike normally produces so much response, think major hooligan effect! Bottom line it DOES run better. I would like to have an off/on switch to help evaluate while riding.

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="650"><tr><td>Thank you, Hexhead! I think you're the first one in with an HP2e ride report. Sounds like the IICE Air is working the way it should. I understand what you mean about the on/off switch, and here's an idea about that. When you take a drink of milk from the carton out of the fridge and it's sour, do you need to take another drink to be sure? :1drink

    Kidding aside, the Air has a 0° offset jumper position. The 0° setting is the same thing as an off switch.

    Got mine today and had it installed on the 05 1200 GS in less than 5 minutes. Sweet!

    Exactly what Hexhead said are my findings. First notice was how smoothly I was able to get from the shop through the grass at crawl speed to the front drive. Shifting seemed much smoother with out that bit of snatchiness once on the highway. Hooligan effect was not turned ON for the short test ride I did.

    Well done! :thumb

    <BR>A milestone.

    Remember this picture from last year?

    Well the other day I went to ship a batch of Airs and the cupboard was bare!

    [​IMG]


    Here's the new supply of bubble mailers.

    [​IMG]


    So these could ship out.

    This is the batch that shipped on Friday. You folks on this list should be receiving them shortly.

    Thanks but I already have that taken care of, just finding out if I need to do the same for the cool, I thought I remembered poolside saying that the cool would be lead free so could be shipped internationally. It's not a problem if not. Thanks very much for the offer though.

    Nothing new to report that hasn't been reported already. Ordinary 96 GS.
    Mine arrived yesterday. It took all of 3 minutes to install and I hit the commute today. Wow! :clap
    It really smoothed out the throttle response, especially in the off/on/low speed situations (exactly what I was looking for). And, to echo the other comments, the front wheel is more willing to get off the ground now.

    With the promise of even mo' betta with the Cool, I'll be getting in line.
