Yes. It makes it more comfortable snickering at a bike you or your buddy doesn't ride.

I don't see why not.. though never tried the opposite, I always see a Harley crowd at a local Mama Rabbits Motor Lounge here, and I keep passing every time but folks seem friendly, some even wave back

wow.. I'll be sure to avoid it then. Sorta like what I used to do working in The Bronx years ago... we'd hear often stories of people being shot nearby. When I went at work at night usually didn't stop at red lights if it was safe to pass

Best to stay away from them nighttime biker hangouts.
It's much safer to do afternoon ADV dinners or Sunday afternoon ice cream socials. Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride. Ray is gonna make fun of all of them anyhow.

A bunch of us foilheads will be down in Sanford at the Old Gilliam Mill this weekend with our hacks. It's the annual Carolina Rally and Picnic (aka CRAP). If anyone is in the area, stop on by, enjoy some food, drink a few Baltika's, and shoot the shit with half the nation's Ural riders.

I will not be tagging or riding much in the next month or so. Wife is going in for surgery tomorrow. So I get baby duty myself for 6-8 weeks. Benny, if the part is supplied I will put it in free of charge. Might need them to pay for the refrigerant depending how much is needed and that can be worked out.

Chad my prayers for you and your wife..
From what i gathered thus far the compressor is bad and problably should be replaced it is way over 10 yrs old ...do not know if it is fixable . The family did pay someone to come out and they were told a new AC unit would be $2600 just the compressor $2300 if that makes any sense to you...I haven't a clue.
From what LW told me the older R22 is becoming very expensive if the system isnt damaged...Its more cost efficient to buy a new r410a unit. I am just wondering if they could get a room/window a/c units in each room...
Thankyou for your very generous offer...
