  1. I'm just guessing but I think a lot of people ride harder than others. So, we have results all over the place.
  2. I can feel the pads contacting the rotors. It just doesn't seem to make much of a difference. I don't really use the rear brakes that often. I can get the ABS to engage so I guess everything is working. The brick on a rope comment might have been a bit of an exaggeration.
  3. I did. I keep after my maintenance on the brakes. I often bleed them more than once a year. I can't believe I haven't replaced the brake lines yet. Lazy I guess.
  4. I'm happy your rear pads improved your bike. I was so happy when I got the rear upgraded pads but I swear it made no difference. At all.
  5. Replaced the fronts with EBC HH and love them. The rear was really bad, stock. Replaced the rear pads with EBC, still crappy. I think if I adjusted the pedal a bit it might be better but for now you might as well throw a brick out on a rope for stopping. Definitely going to put on steel lines. I go mountain riding almost exclusively with the go fast guys. The brakes are certainly adequate, though not too impressive.
  6. I'm guessing that was for me. I am not a fan of pipe changes anymore, though in the past I've done it. The little bit of added grunt and lesser weight would probably be achieved by taking a school or riding with the guys who know how to ride and take their suggestions and watch their lines. Finally, I don't like giving radar gun officer a notice I'm heading towards them on the boil.
  7. That's exactly what I was thinking.
  8. Welcome. The bike is so much fun, surely you'll put a lot of miles on it just going nowhere and everywhere. What part of the world are you now? Maybe someone living in your area will meet up with you and go for a ride. I would if you live in northern IN.
  9. Please tell me that riding 50 years is not enough. I've got 48 years under me and I'm just getting started. I do rarely ride my Goldwing anymore but my wife wants me to keep it for the few times a year that she wants some wind therapy.
  10. I have a Givi screen on mine but not that particular one. I like it. I just always leave it in the lowesr position.
  11. I don't want to pee in your punch bowl but DOT regulations don't allow amber running lights to the rear. Amber blinkers are fine but not solid amber, to the rear. Whether or not you might get cited for it is another matter.
  12. I've had my beak for a while now and have not noticed any issues with it. I like the way it looks too.
