I agree. What a great report.

Funny thing is that, during my most recent trip, I felt convicted to plan a trip with my dad. This report just adds fuel to that fire. :D

Yep. Negative pressure is common with stock FJR windshields. Windshield spacers that cost mere pennies offer an easy fix for, both, the buffeting and the negative pressure that sucks you forward.

What a way with words!

Another classic report but am I the only one having problems seeing the pics? From page 6 on, all I can see is a "upgrade to Photobucket Pro" image instead of the RR pics. :scratch

Bad things can happen anywhere but you can't live in fear. Yes, even in America, there are people out there that will hurt you (and they're not all in the ghetto).
