If you haven't already, look into Grip Puppies, or similar, too. Some like ISO Grips. I prefer the Grip Puppies, but I am also cheap.

Actually, no, I don't see how it benefits me or mine. Taxes still go up to fund infrastructure. Roads are more crowded. Restaurants are more crowded. Medical appointments are harder to get and...

You didn't say where in the world this damp, moldy bike is sitting. That may make a difference. Does it ever get hot and dry?

Oooooo, thanks so much for the informative reply. I half expected some wise cracks, but your thoughtfulness really made my day.

Adventure vs. non-Adventure when you sell or trade

REALLY wish I had known this 2 weeks ago.

For those of you who have the Adventure model, if you sell or trade your bike to a dealer, take the bags/racks off before sending pics or showing the...

I usually just Google the part or part number and then check the results. There are some OEM parts that are only available from outside the US, like turn signals and top box reflectors.

With the bike off, twist the throttle a half dozen times or so. See if that eliminates the bike dying for a while. If so, there is probably some crud built up on surfaces.

That was one bit of...

Check the classified here. Might be something. I found the skid plate very useful. Highway pegs, not so much. But that's just me.

I just have to get a plan together, service...

If it were me, and I REALLY wanted the bike, I'd put $3300 on the table and nothing more. There are plenty of bikes out there, so walking away is not the end of the line.

Had a trailer tire installed on a trailer rim a few days ago. No pops when the bead seated. And the tire is fine.

May not be the same as a car or bike or a car/bike, but pops don't always happen.

Sorry, I think that guys price is WAY too high, regardless of the farkles. The bike is 15 yrs old. And with 42K miles, no one is beating a path to his door to buy it.
