Judging from the right-angled fast-on connectors, that looks more like the up grade flasher, and not the OEM version. Yes/no?

Depends on what theme you are using as to where it is. Either that or somebody wasn't sure of their left versus right.

My stepfather used to have a laborer that worked for him who didn't know his left from right. When giving directions he just said "my side" or "your side" since he always sat in the passenger side of vehicles.

I bought this flasher with the LED turn signals so they would not blink too fast. The stocker was the black square one, yes. (2008 DR650SE)

We were selected!

We had a location scout come to our house a couple of weeks ago, looking for a spot to film a commercial. Well, it was down to two homes ... and we were selected today! Must have been twenty people trooping through the place just now, gauging angles, lighting, etc. They shoot next Wednesday from 6am until 7pm. With about 60 more folks clogging up the house. LOL!

And yes, we get paid ... and even get the house cleaned for free. :-)

It's not (as I just discovered) a broadcast commercial. It's an in-store commercial for Arm & Hammer laundry products. Which store? Walmart! LOL!

Should be an interesting day. Maybe I can sell myself as a voice talent. :-)

I definitely know my left from my right. I use Chrome and the pull down on my screen was on the bottom left.

This is on my garage machine. Haven't looked at the home computer (also using Chrome) since this happened, so we'll see what it shows.

Inside machine was fine with the "old" format. I suspect that when I made the change in the garage they registered my IP address (garage is tied to house via wifi) of having already made the change.

Regardless, everything is back to "normal."

Okay, enough banter about page formats, flashers, chain breakers, and a commercial shoot.

Where in Hades are we eating on Friday?? I'm hungry and personally have my sights set on the Steel Horse Grill in Chester.



If nothing is forthcoming by the morning, I may run down there tomorrow to check the place out.

Ah hah!

The change on my house computer was so subtle I didn't notice.

Regardless, where the pull down was - bottom LH side of the screen:



and the item to click to take it back to the old format:

Looking at a DRZ

Want to cull the wisdom of yous guys about a bike I'm interested in.
I've already shot him a PM asking for the VIN and other specific Q's.
I know some of you have plated non street bikes and would like to know if it's a easy as the DMV website makes it appear. I would want to get it plated here in VA. I know MANY used bikes have been purchased by readers of this thread and want to know what you think of this sparsely detailed listing.
What's really got my eye on this is it's sprung for a 260 lb rider, and I'm 240 (ish). Also, a while back, some info was posted about searching for stolen bikes via VINs but my searches yield errors. If I recall, Eddy had something about this with bike on CL.

Here's the post:
