There's any number of quality choices available that are well-suited for the riding community. The technology is constantly improving, too. I watch bad driving a...

Re: My number came up today

As said, glad you're OK and so is the bike. Maybe it's my experience as a motorcycle training instructor, but I'm always very wary of vehicles alongside, and am often thinking about blind spots and how to make myself more visible to the other driver(s). We used to keep banging on about it to our pu...

Re: My number came up today

In the few incidents I've had in my lifetime, video wouldn't have made any difference, and being a full time rider often at night and in the rain, it would be a full time chore not worth the effort, limitations, and distraction. Time, effort, and money are limited resources that I rather expend on ...

Re: My number came up today

Well, that just sucks. But glad you are okay. Your choice on seeking medical attention. But my thought is given the direction of the force, you may have chipped a bone or cracked a smaller bone. Might be worth a visit. Seeing how you were "diverted" by the car, I just thought of a new accessory Ura...

I know most of you're old timers and maybe don't like technology so much, but I swear by never riding without a camera mounted to my helmet. Too much risk out here on these streets, you nev...

Re: My number came up today

Yeah that number thing. How do the odds work The longer you are out there the closer to an accident or the longer you are out there the less likely because of experience. Make sure you don't sign off too early on that sprain. You decide. You know your body the best. Curious to how fast/what speed y...

Re: My number came up today

I'm glad to read that both you and the Ural are still running correctly. Were you riding the Patrol or the M70? The M70 naturally. Can't beat up the beater rig..... :( Such is life. As a full time rider, and professional driver I'm on the road 10+ hours a day, a few incidents are inevitable, and le...

My number came up today

On the way to work this morning a driver in the right lane decided she needed to be in the left lane at the same time I was in it. I was directly beside her, and saw her signal come on reflected on the wet pavement. Hit my horn and the brakes but she came over too quickly and pushed me into a lane d...

Re: Windscreen from scratch

With it removed, only the clamps on the bars and the ball mounts on the headlight arms remain. Only takes a minute to install, or remove.

Re: 2014 Patrol low idle

Thanks for all of the helpful suggestions. I live in Kent, WA. not far from Windmill (where ever he lives) I have seen him on the roads near to me. I'm on 224th, probably 2 miles from you, and have an OBD2 tool, but I don't have the correct adapter cable for a 2014. :( If you get, or make a cable I...

Re: Windscreen from scratch

:lurker: http://livinginthepast-audioweb.co.uk/imagex/misc/plus-one.gif Not personally over-enamored of the semicircular edge style, but YMMV. I looked at some classic BMW fairings, but they seem better suited to a shiny Retro than a OD green M70. I figured if I was going to go with a vintage style...

Re: Windscreen from scratch

The edging is strictly for the looks in keeping with the rest of the bike. The polycarbonate is only 1/8" thick, and is finished off, but the edging is small and unobtrusive, don't really notice it while riding.

Re: Nice Rig, not Russian, not mine...

I did some pricing on custom rigs before getting my 2018 M70, I think it's safe to say that rig was probably over $45k OTD new.
