Now your RS will look like one of its eyes have been poked out. The volmeter is about the most useless thing on a motorcycle.
Push start button, bike goes. If not, fix.

Perhaps a cuckoo can pop out of the spare hole on the hour? Does your clock work?

The dice (die?) are no good. The grease in your hair will get all over your helmet.

You don't have one of these. Right up your alley.

Those racks certainly look different from mine, more like a universal application. They are also in much better condition. But since I want to tuck mine in some there will be cutting and welding, followed by either paint or powder coating, so appearance is a moot point. Do you have the bags to go with the racks ? And do you have the lock cylinders that attach the bags ?

Re: Nearly as good as an oil thread: diode boards

He was banned from the board, he is one of those opinionated SOBs who filled this board with so much aggro, that many other knowledgeable participants left. To a great degree he has done the same to ADV.
The guy is a garden variety troll. He craves attention and stirs up shit so he can be in the center of the controversy. I also suspect he plays the iconoclast because he thinks it makes him look smarter or more sophisticated. Basic head case.

ADV has a rather large number of significantly nasty people. Not trolls really but the kind that likes putting someone down to try to build themselves up. And there is also a fragile ego underlying that---they themselves feel put down in the presence of someone they otherwise admire. It's a pretty sick dynamic---much more advanced head case. "knowledgeable" people leave because they get tired of being attacked by the same people that are frantically taking notes. The structure of the forum leaves these people a lot of scope so they accumulate. I don't see them on other forums, they get booted pretty quick. I do see people on other forums advising to avoid ADV, and it's this garbage they are talking about. It's a shame but like craigslist it got huge by making a playground for asshats and it can afford to alienate an aweful lot of people and still be big. The owners bottom line is they would rather be big than good. Vote with your clicks.
