    New style of panniers from Happy trails

    i have my first set I bought for my klr in 07. They have well over 100,000 miles and multiple drops, dents, digs, and decals. Still water proof usable and ready to go. The only real wear item is the latch, the turn Handle on it is worn and vibrates. I put black rtv on it to stop the rattle and...

    Scratches on matte paint?

    that’s one issue with flat paint. You can’t buff it out, even sanding it out with not work, cause it will be a different look though still flat. Touch up paint could help depending on how picky you are, but you can’t blend it so it will be noticed. Talking with my dealer on a flat black bike I...

    Scratches on matte paint?

    I got mine to keep from sliding when I didn’t want to and to help hold my knee in place when pushing it into the tank. That also keeps me from scratching the paint when I ride in that manner which is a lot :)

    I used to ride Mtn bikes a lot, tons of trails where I live. I have some shorts left over but on the motorcycle they didn’t work so well.(for me) Great on the Mtn bike. Granted mine are padded not sure if those are the kind you are talking about though. I have some enduro padded spandex that...

    i have experienced of 32 years or touring myself and hold the same views but disagree with you. The big difference is I can see your preference even though it goes against my experience. Yet I do not make snide comment about choosing one material over the other as you do. Your inability to see...

    you seem to have issue seeing any other side of a story other than yours. Glad you so proud of your opinion it just doesn’t pan out for everyone.

    Breathability doesn’t mean that you feel air blowing around. It means that air can move to manage moisture. Plastic seats are sweaty when the temps are hot. Leathers seats not so much. Now if your wearing rain cheap rain paints than you are correct it doesn’t matter and if the pants you wear are...

    I had the same experience with a ride in for a triumph 955 tiger. Had me go ride the bike and let him know what I though. After 3 rides it was dialed in. I much prefer leather for the comfort. It molds to your butt better and breathers better than any synthetic seat I have had. Never had any...

    That’s so odd to me I guess it different for different personalities or looks or something. I get hell going into Canada. Last time it was 45 minutes of unpacking the bike going into a private room being integrated. Then the man would leave and come back more of the same alcohol questions and...

    Harley Pan American coming 2/21/2021

    they may have some new teething issues not unlike KTM or bmw, other than that I don’t see why not. Completely different animal but I took my sportster to Inuvik, NT, Canada and deadhorse, Ak on the return trip did Sturgis rally and the Big Dog event eventually ending up back home in Arkansas...

    Harley Pan American coming 2/21/2021

    the Vmax had a shaft so I think it’s not the power out put but as said above it’s the weight and packag of the shaft. A shaft has a limited amount or angle that it will work well in so it has more engineering envolved to make it function properly. BMW has managed 220mm on the adventure which is...

    Ive had some seriously reliable Harleys and have seen some real duds. Don’t take my excitement about HD adv bike wrong. I‘m super stoked they got in and put out big effort, meaning they are serious about it. I’m very happy with the S10 and hope to get some good off road miles on it this year...
