Great to see some tagging in this area. Perhaps next month I will be able to venture out some and grab a few.

I'm with you on that Steve - as soon as I think I can get out to get one, SNAG ...

I still have to figure out the posting of pictures to this site.

is simple really...if you have a smart phone that uses Tapatalk you just take a pic with your phone ...and upload it into the thread post you create from your pic. gallery...the other way is to go through a picture hosting website like photobucket or Smugmug...take the pic and in then copy the img. code and paste in the post you create...
Back in 2009 when i started playing ADVrider TORs'...I did it with a point and shoot digital camera...ran home and downloaded the pic into my computer and then download it to photobucket...then copy the img code and paste it in the reply...Now I can do all that from the side of the road where I grabbed the tag. Tapatalk eliminates the need to post to photobucket and will insert the pic right from your phone's gallery...

Just a heads up. Aerostitch Roadcrafter lights are on sale for $400 bucks. That's a steal if anyone has been thinking about getting one or searching the flea market for their chance.

they'll be gone in a few hours (if not already). I prefer the full weight fabric, but if people want a lighter weight city commuter suit, it's not a bad deal... I think the only issue with the ones on sale is the velcro is a bit weak that holds the knee/elbow pads in place (if you care about that stuff).... definitely a good deal at 40% off

Nice! what did you think about that bike? (I find the explorer a bit more comfy overall - that one was a tad cramped... at least for me)

It's an amazing bike. Very responsive and actually feels light once you get it off the side stand. Even at slow speed. It really goes when you hit the throttle and it soars through the curves. You are right, it does feel like less room than the Explorer, but I'm shorter than you, so that doesn't bother me. The thing I don't like is that there is no airflow which makes it really hot to ride. Even at speed last night I was dying. With the windscreen at its lowest, the air was hitting me in the middle of my face shield with a little air on my arms but none on my chest. Absolutely no air on my legs. I could put my hand next to my leg at 75 mph without and wind resistance.

If I could afford the price tag for a bike to only ride when it was below 75 degrees, I'd buy it in a minute, but I couldn't use it as an everyday bike around here. I was planning on getting the NC tag this afternoon, but I don't think I could do it with this bike and the 95 degree temps.

I'd compare it to driving a Porsche Boxter S with the top down and the windows up. A ton of fun and you can hear the wind but you can't feel it
