Re: I guess they were correct...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Re: Recommend me some crash bungs!!

My R&Gs have always bent and snapped off in several low speed lowsides. I think it's actually the attachment bolt that's at fault. My Motosliders were much better and the slider was usually still...

Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Let's back it up a bit and think. The simple and sensible idea, based on industrialization concepts, is that no-one performs tasks that they haven't been trained for and assessed as capable. Makes...

Re: 2017 SV versus 2018 SV

Probably just means they've changed the way they measure it.

Besides which, has anyone ever tried actually filling up an empty tank to it's advertised capacity? It kinda resides firmly in the...
