If you ordered / asked for one, then I ordered it. I just don't have my notes in front of me, so i was going to see which honest people spoke up to claim one that they ordered...

This message typed from the side of the road with the second flat tire in as many weeks .

Glad to hear that! Sorry to hear about the flat tires. What is it with new bikes and flat tires?

Dunno... This was on the DRZ actually, so it just needs a tube.

In the last month I've had the following:
DRZ- Battery, throttle assembly, flat tire
Tenere- Flat tire (through a belt, in between tread blocks, plugged, don't trust it - replaced), battery
Truck- new tires, emissions hose leak triggering check engine light.

I hope I'm done for a while...

NO -IT WOULD HAVE TO BE MORE POWERFUL THAN JUST PLAIN OLD NITROUS---MAYBE BORROW A RAPTOR FROM THE AIR FORCE

Think I can get him on the straights but there just is not enough straight roads where we ride to keep him in sight unless he wants to be seen -but he does wait patiently on us slow pokes
