Top least reliable motorcycles

Youtube has some great information, but it amazes me how another self labeled motorcycle expert can post :bs: and still have followers on youtube. He has absolutely no experience with Urals or most likely not with any of the bikes listed, since he seems to only own Yamaha. https://youtu.be/6JP9O4Hhe...

Re: Garmin vs. Google Maps (those using Garmin)

Well, I cancelled the TomTom and went with the Garmin 396lmt-s. Should arrive today. In the end I couldn't get past the combined shortfalls of the website and routing tool. If they can't get that software right, I've no reason to think the unit or maps won't suffer the same neglect. Lastly, the lac...

PS I got pulled over on the way back, you guessed it, tail light out.
How many tail lights is a motorcycle required to have :roll:

Lovely idea, but immediately occurred to me wind blast could be pulling on the compliance fittings, just a thought. :-|
Never had an issue with my Langlitz, about 25,000K using the laprobe.

Re: Tuscano Urbano lap robe mods

I have a Langlitz lap robe and used it both ways. In front of the heads still allows air to pass through heads driving heat to the rider. at -26°F the bike does not over heat. Above freezing I connect in between carbs. normally.

Re: Garmin vs. Google Maps (those using Garmin)

I have been using a TomTom Rider V5 life time maps for a few years my issue is their maps are incomplete at least in new England. Riding in Maine all of sudden I am off their grid. Northern NH same thing. Happened in Vermont a couple times as well.
