Three days and it's here. That's service. Can't get these locally and the dealer is 20 minutes away. Boss called a snow day today. This time of year if you want an excuse to work on your bike, wash your car just days before

You wouldn't believe. The population growth here is phenomenal. It seems like 1 in 5 motorist is from out of state. What used to be a mild rush hour has now turned into rush hours. There is serious road rage here.

To put into perspective, when driving during the rush and going speed limit or less it's ridiculous. People act like everything is an emergency.

That's too late for me. It's quiet enough could probably go unheard for a bit.

The vendor of these seals was terrific to deal with. Emails me a picture of the bike he owned and the impression it left. I wonder if it's still around today.
