    A fire extinguisher, really? That will only be of use if someone else's bike is on fire, right? And a chrome one no less.:rofl

    Yeah, knowing CPR is useless, too. Benefit of the doubt here. I'm sure you weren't trying to be a dick.

    Oh, & it's not chrome dumbass. It's polished aluminum. Do try to pay attention to hot rod accessories.:wink:

    I've seen bikes burn down. If I'm around when you happen to be so unfortunate...........................

    Remember that Harley that we saw burn and explode on I-10? Bet that dude was thinking, "if I had only packed a fire extinguisher!"

    Yea, and the whole bike burnt to the ground. :eek1

    Unless he wanted to be well done along with the bike, the fire extinguisher would have probably been useless.


    If you feel safer carrying a fire extinguisher, more power to you. i always carry a pink rabbit's foot with me on all rides in hopes to find the roads/trails... at least within 50miles or so

    Now if your bike is on fire and your buddy has an extinguisher, that is useful. Knowing these FFs he will pull out the camera first, and put you out when he is done laughing. :lol3

    Tesla should make a bike, what fun that would be!

    If my Bike's on fire the only thing I'm grabbing is the cell phone to call the insurance agent.
    I tried to rebuild a bike that had burned Once!
    Call the insurance man!

    Really!

    That sounds like an intermittent short. Had that in a car one time, tore half of it apart trying to find out where. Finally pulled a new hot wire from the brake light switch to the rear. Before that, I was driving around with a pack of fuses in my ashtray. If I hit a big bump, the fuse would blow. Could not recreate with a wiggle test at home.:D
