I recently wrote a letter to the editor of MCN complaining about the lack of points to attach Bungee cords on the newer bikes. Besides the "luggage rack" and "strapping systems that mount under the pillion seat" (what are those?) the posted answer included "replacing exterior hex-head bolts...

Alternate title "You Get What You Pay For".
So my battery failed to start the bike twice. Many...

I am unable to stand the heat and even putting on a mesh jacket seems too much for me in the Florida summers.

Shields are expensive.
Headlights are expensive (car ones are anyway - I don't know about MCs for sure)
Is there a way to polish lightly scratched shields and tinted drop-down sun visors like the car headlight stuff?
Anyone tried it?
Seems simple......................yea I...
Yesterday out for a little ride and on the way home went North on Shoal Line Blvd toward home.
I caught up with a cloud shadow and paced it. 54mph.
I always think that is really cool to do.
