Those are great lids! Comfy and quiet
I probably should buy a new street helmet. Love my RF-1000 but it’s pretty old, and the liner has started to flake
Check out the Scorpion AT950. Best of both worlds IMO.
My Shoei started flaking as well. After much reading, decided to stick with Shoei. Weight 3.5 pounds and quiet. Plus, my Flutter helmet did right by me. No complaints.
I’ll give that old silver bastard credit. I put on a shit ton of miles under it for sure
Of course I like the blue one, Kim.
Never liked the Shoei helmets I've had, they fog up to the point I have to pull over any time I'm in rain. Not safe, don't know why they do that to me.
I am wearing a $30 AFX helmet that fits great but loud. Prolly would wear a different one if I was taking a multi day ride.
Usually wear a HJC but really liked the Scorpions I've had.
Calling all height challenged riders, please come to the courtesy phone.... Yes, you! How do you navigate the seat height obstacle? Lowering links or boots with a bit of a lift?
People seem to lower the bike, only to return it to the original height. Others choose the boot route. While the boot route seems to be a better option; however, locating a pair has been a challenge. Yes, found a few pairs, but the pair I really like is out of stock on 95% of them.
Any site suggestions?
I am getting reacquainted and prefer stability when stopping.
Drop the bike till you get comfortable, then set it back to stock. Or do a low seat if you’re not too scrunched up while sitting?
Buy the correct spanner wrench, and set the sag on the rear suspension first. Or go to the dealer and have then do it. It is possible that it is set too stiff. You could measure the sag first to be sure.
Checked out the lower seat option you mentioned, and Seat Concepts has 1 to add height and 1 for comfort.
I think they have a thread in vendors. Might ask if they can lower one for you.
I'll check it out.
We have decided to lowering the bike for now. Cullenking, used the Emig Racing links, and it had the best results for his girlfriend. Took 2 inches off the height. That will be fine and dandy.
Looked into seat concepts as well. Found a Seat Concepts lowering foam and cover on Chapmoto.com... That is another option if needed. Don't think it will be; however, it is always an option. Thanks, Buzz!
I’ve had a klymit and now my big agnes air mattress is leaking. Anyone have a great lightweight camping pad that packs small and light?
I just picked up one of those thermarest cots. Do you have anywhere for me to overnight it to you out west?
I have used my kylmit one quite a bit without issue
We received the hardware for the Bark Buster's yesterday. Now waiting on the plastics. We were a bit disappointed when the medium size box arrived and no plastics. Sad when you get excited about hand guards. LOL!!
That’s why I try to keep a set “in inventory”
I’m on the hunt now for a two person tent with a vestibule large enough to store gear, and cook. I’ve yet to find anything that fits what I’m looking for, and I may be better off with a tent and a tarp. Figured I’d see if anyone had a recommendation
