Just playful banter. Been going on forever, and it will likely continue. Calling attention to it usually makes it worse with this crowd. Google "counter-dependent personality."

Got the GPS sorted.



Garmin Montana, Madstad adjustable windshield bracket with crossbar, Rugged mount with RAM mount. I wanted it off the handlebars and at the bottom of my line of sight and to far away to mess with it. Aesthetically I would have preferred it in front of the cross bar but everything sits flush so I'm not complaining to much. Just cause I ride a black bike doesn't mean everything has to look nice :ymca

Not quite stock. K60's, altrider Skidplate and crashbars, two brothers black series carbon slip on.. the snow on the ground makes all the black parts nearly impossible to see.

OK, after a good 1 1/2 years of procrastination, I've finally picked up a used Super T. 1800 miles and bone stock...




.... Ergo's feel KLR comfortable but power is "Wow" in comparison.

First on the list is some panniers. The previous owner never got the luggage lock cylinders from the dealer..... and the dealer is feigning ignorance (duh). Anyone ever tried to add the OEM panniers but didn't have the lock set?

Welcome here, it was due time that someone comes here and brings up a real issue to discuss

Have you checked if they are under the seat or where the toolkit is located under the left cowling? Some dealers put that stuff there that it does not get lost.

The oem panniers are made by shad (http://www.shad.es/de/shad-usa/unter...em-koffer/c19/) so you could contact them and ask if they sell locks that fit the panniers.

Psychobable aside, blue owners are still slow.

If you buy the panniers separately, they'll come with a lock set. Just won't match your ignition key. Stadium Yamaha has the best prices that I've seen at $343 per pannier and they also offer black. Get the part number off the Yamaha Europe website.

Btw, check out the clutch switch mod, it will really make the bike come alive in the first three gears.

I had to have my bash plate powder coated black for that very reason.

maybe playful banter with the first 100 posts or so on the whole gay deal... but that line has gotten a bit tiresome.

no harm in teasing a bit... but please...lets take it in a different direction...

I suppose we could go back to posting pictures of our bikes in this thread.



I think what we really need is all of this blasted snow to melt so we can get back to riding instead of arguing.
