    [QUOTE=AntonLargiader »]There’s a chance you could find a break in the wire leading to the grip and repair it, but as you get closer to the heating wires (or into them) it becomes a lot more fiddly. No harm checking – take off the bar-end weight and look for broken stuff – but replacement is usually the way to go.[/QUOTE]

    Well I got lots of time this winter so I can play with it. 😀 I haven’t tried wiggling the wiring with an ohm meter on it yet. I got to think about a new grip also. Something bigger then stock.

    Same here. Snow all gone but temps still in 30’s and bike torn apart. Resealing the timing chain cover on my K1100RS and maybe mounting some aux lights. I will probably not ride until late spring anyway. Having operation on foot and got to stay off it for three weeks. That sucks but I have been putting this off for too long. Got to do it. Everyone enjoy spring and the ride.:D

    [QUOTE=BamaCMA »]Two things strike me about this bike.
    1) the way the seat is designed alot of pressure will be on the groin and prostate area making it uncomfortable to ride for an length of time.
    2) I can just see that chain ripping my foot off.[/QUOTE]

    Ah you don’t need that foot…you got two….:p

    The description says it hasn’t been driven so maybe the chain guards are up and coming.

    [QUOTE=Beemer-me-up »]Sorry, that bike does nothing for me. :cool:[/QUOTE]

    Well it didn’t do much for me either. It’s just interesting that something that big can be imagined and built. Of course you wouldn’t catch me dead or alive on it…!:D

Good way to meet up with other riders is at the BMW shop in Essex on Sat. mornings- 7:30 for breakfast rides.[/QUOTE]

    [QUOTE=BMWPhreak »]That, and start downloading old Phish concerts… Burlington is an “interesting” town, with a college town vibe mixed with Yankee farmer overtones! Can’t help you with an apartment but you may want to look just outside of Burlington due to the demand from college students.[/QUOTE]
    That would explain some of the hefty rents. Two kids can afford more then one. Thanks for the note.

    [QUOTE=AntonLargiader »]I couldn’t read the article, but what you quoted doesn’t really illustrate the problem. Is the claim that the bikes were not parked legally, and have less of a right to the parking spot? I have no idea what the justification for that would be.

    Where are people putting the motorcycles and scooters that they remove from the parking spaces?[/QUOTE]

    Here is the original article

    And then here is the council’s action.
    [url]http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2008091202_webscooters05m.html[/url]

    Moving a scooter is easier then moving a full size bike but I am living proof of the fact that people will move the bike if enough hands are there to help. I own a K-bike and if my A**hole chief inspector had dropped my bike there would have been hell to pay.

    in reply to: Kisan Signal Minder #60838

    [QUOTE=Ken Krumm »]I am not impressed with Kisan. On their website, they market signal minders for motorcycle that it cannot work on. Example: my Ducati ST3 with CANBUS. The Kisan Signal Minder replaces the turn signal relay in the fuse box. However, on a CANBUS system, there is no replay to replace. After several calls, the Kisan Techs finally admitted they had never attempted to mount a signal minder on this type of Ducati electrical system and had no idea on how to integrate into the CANBUS. However, the Kisan website still markets a signal minder for an ST3 and other Ducati models it cannot work on.

    Adding to my angst, Kisan would not return my emails or phone calls. Finally, they provided me with return information. After about two months, my credit card finally credited with the return. [B]I would do business with this company[/B].[/QUOTE]

    Would not or would?

    [QUOTE=Beemer-me-up »]Sorry to here about your accident. Not to be callous, But you have heard the
    old addage, that if you fall off a horse it best totet right back on… I have
    been in two accidents in 30+ years of riding. One was my fault and one was caused by a drunk driver. We have a hoppy that can be dangerous, but so is skiing, diving, jumping from planes, etc.. all have thier risk, but we do as best we can to minimize the danger and have fun. It’s good that I sometimes still get scared. It keeps me on my toes. My biggest fear right now is teenage girls on cell phones. Keep the rubber side down. Just my 2 cents. 😎
    PS saw you thread on the MOA also, but I’m tryin to use this site more.[/QUOTE]

    Not callous at all..And I did get back on. Much to the displeasure of a brother who says I should stay off at least a year and take the advance riding class. I not sure the class is right for this moment. I am shakey and need to get my nerve back but I understand what he is after. This was my first accident and I am also revaluating the bike. It is a K1100 and very top heavy.

    And i hear ya on teenagers and phones. Same thing with my ex- and her to girls. One racked up over $800 in one month, $600 the next month and then nothing the next because we took it away from her. she also racked up $500 in parking tickets too. You’re not alone.

    Not advancing age though sometimes it feels like it 🙂 . I went down on my R100 last year and broke my right leg. I am kind of spooked now. I expecting that deer to jump out of me or some one pull out in front of me. I am taking it slow this year. I can’t fathom the idea of giving it up. I need to get my nerve back.

    There are no parking garages around me but maybe in my future. I think with the price of gasoline being what it is some garages might loosen up when more people start riding their two wheelers.

    As the “crow flies” 75 miles is about right. Thanks for the welcome.
