  1. I've ordered a R&G fender eliminator tail tidy for a 2019 Tracer from twisted throttle. From the pictures and the pdf instructions it appears that it will fit on the older 2015 - 2018 models. Why I did this is because that the R&G design allows you to keep the turn signals with the hard luggage. On the 2019 model. There are no guarantees that this will work with the older models. One of the reasons I believe this might work is the part numbers for the arm that holds the license plate and turn signals is the same for all models and the plastic cover for the space over the wheel and under the seat is the same too. If this is something you might be interested in. Stay tuned.
  2. @texscottyd That is so cool. A real live racer
  3. There's a restaurant/bar I stop at where I'm a fixture. I've been going there since 1978. I pretty much know everyone from the owners to the busboys. On hot days they'll hand me a beverage and let me stand in the walk in freezer for a few minutes. ๐Ÿ˜Ž A screenshot from last month. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
  4. Hi fddriver2, I'm wondering what seat you have on your bike (in photos pertaining to soft luggage)... it looks comfortable.ย  Jonmue

      It's a Seat Concepts cover. You put it over the existing foam and seat pan and use a heavy duty stapler with stainless steel staples. I had a Sargent and it didn't work for me and traded it away.ย 

      This has worked pretty well for me so far.ย 


      I'm a mileage lightweight. I generally get fuel every 150ish miles and use that time to walk around and stretch drink some water figure 15 - 20 minutes or so.

      The longest day in the saddle was around 425 mile and it was on this seat. It wasn't bad but I was ready to get off.

  5. Never seen a sign like that. Fine by me though. I will be happy to spend my money elsewhere.
  6. Now THAT is what I was looking for! Excellent and thanks for sharing.๐Ÿ˜Ž
  7. I rinse it in a 5 gallon bucket with warm water and a drop of laundry detergent. Then a rinse with clear water Especially after this.
  8. I have a couple tailbags that I use. A small Cortech and a larger GIVI. I permanently mount them using a 1/4-20 SS sidewalk bolt with a fender washer and a nylock nut. I use a Endurostan dry bag now, but used my canoe - kayak dry bags for a long time.
  9. Good. This has taken much longer than I thought it would. Summer riding, places to go, I figured it would be a few days tops. ๐Ÿคจ
  10. I have some "Bunny Bucks". https://santadollars.com/bunny-bucks/
  11. I have a 2015 that I bought in February of 2016 with extended warranty. Clutch cable and Cam chain tensioner replaced. Both were TSB, so I don't know if it was considered under warrant or not. They didn't charge me either way. 30,000+ miles zero other problems.
  12. Stay tuned for sure. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
