  1. Today
  2. This obviously isn’t set in stone but here’s his reply.
  3. I sent an email this morning to the person I’ve spoken to since the beginning of all of this. I’m waiting to hear back from him.
  4. “Mountain” @fddriver2? My local topography along the Texas Gulf Coast isn’t much different. My house is at about 75 feet above sea level, and I still laugh at a town a bit east of here: Mont Belvieu. Trust me on this, it is neither mountainous nor beautiful...
  5. Sugarloaf Mountain is the fifth-highest named point in the U.S. state of Florida. At 312 feet (95 meters) above sea level it is also the highest point on the geographic Florida Peninsula.[1] The mountain is in Lake County, near the town of Clermont. Comparatively, Florida's highest point, Britton Hill, rises to 345 feet (105 m) above sea level in the Florida Panhandle. However, Sugarloaf Mountain is the most prominent point in the entire state.[3] Sugarloaf Mountain (Florida) - Wikipedia
  6. 🖕😉🤣 That was unnecessarily harsh. 😛
  7. I think there is a latest update saying sargent will be halting sales of the seat until everything can be addressed in about 1-2weeks time. Do update if you have any
  8. See here: Page 6 - second post down. Posted last week. Rob
  9. I think that halt was back in August. I have a GT seat in production based on the notice last week. Rob
  10. Had a run down the Snake pass, Peak district via Jodrell bank today cool morning but the heated grips saved the day. Big telescope at Jodrell monitoring our alien friends, no, not the politicians. 190 m ish. Lay by sandwiches lovely day.
  11. Update and caveat. I rode to work in 32F temp today. Only a 20 min ride doing 75-80mph mostly on hwy, and my hands stayed nice and toasty using medium heat setting (with crappy gloves). Very happy, because my hands were cold by the time I got to work last week in in 45-47F temperatures. Caveat is that this my first experience with heated grips so I do not have anything to compare too. What I can say with a fair amount of certainty certainty albeit minimal exposure, is that I will not own a bike without heated grips again in the foreseeable future!
  12. Picked these up recently for my son but his foot is too big already. I was told they were only worn once when I got them and it doesn’t even look like they have been worn at all. Size 44 US. I’d like to get $75 plus shipping to recoup my cost.
  13. Hey Rob Did you order a GT seat or standard FJ seat? Someone on here mentioned that Sargent was halting the sale of the GT seat while they addressed the fitment issues. Cheers, Rob
  14. Lil ride in Southern Ohio yesterday. Fall colors are not great, but I don't think it has peaked yet.
  15. The color is available in the US for the regular Tracer 900, apparently. 2019 Yamaha Tracer 900 Sport Touring Motorcycle - Model Home ...
  16. Two very different bikes...I had a Ully and yes, very tall, one foot down for me 5.10. Good fun but a bit too much character for me, stranded on the side of the road once too often. The Tracer is a modern reliable bike that can be relied on. Far superior in all areas, except maybe character. 🤔🤔
  17. Congrats! A very nice bike with a very nice colour. That windshield though.....I bet it is mega effective.
  18. Thank you very much! I will read that post. That thing cost 500 euros! 😣 Yes! They make parts for BMWs but the deflector is universal. I'll come up with a review this week (as soon as I get a litle bit of free time).
  19. The floor of my shop is epoxy painted, but for the ‘regular garage’ I’ve just thrown an old area rug down where I keep some of the bikes parked. It is especially useful for bikes like the FJ that stay on a center stand, as it keeps the bare concrete from potentially getting scratched up. Not fancy, but functional...
  20. Neither is the price. Best wishes with the new bike
  21. Great bike. I always wished I could find one here in the States but they were never sold here
  22. I'll take your word for it, I was just going by the bikes listed specs. Specs at a Glance Buell Ulysses XB12X Displacement: 1203cc Seat Height: 2006 33.1 inches; 2007 31.8 inches Fuel Capacity: 4.4 gallons Dry Weight: 425 pounds Colors: Barricade Orange, Black Price: $11,495
  23. No. Not even close. Ulysses is an XB12X. Maybe you're thinking the XT, which is about the same height as an FJ. Think an extra 2.5 inches. I can flat-foot the FJ (seat in the low position, love it!) whereas on the Uly, I'm on my tiptoes and even then, need to lean the bike which is an uncomfortable sensation on a 550+ lb bike. I really appreciate the lesser weight, narrower profile, and lower seat!
