    Women’s BMW Airflow Jacket

    Absolutely. I have a Handy motorcycle air lift for sale on Craigslist and I get the same thing. Everyone wants something for nothing. When the syntax is lacking, there’s your sign. The jacket will sell eventually. I have it listed on other forums and actually had someone ask me for the size and color. I used the same pics and description I used here. Kind of hard to not know the size and color from the info posted if you actually read the ad. The jacket is a great deal and the low balling scam shit just gets old. I’m not trying to screw anyone. Im already taking a loss on this garment.

    Would you / Will you take a Covid-19 vaccine?

    Yep ... that works. Its a personal choice that has consequences ... which I think is part of the problem ... personal responsibility seems to be a foreign concept for a lot of folks today.

    Would you / Will you take a Covid-19 vaccine?

    I appreciate your analogy and understand what you’re saying. But the fancy vest only makes you safer from a specific and voluntary high risk activity (riding a motorcycle); these theoretical anti covid vaccine folks are not specifically choosing such an activity. A better analogy might be, motorcycling without that airbag vest would be like going to the Sturgis rally without being vaccinated first.

    Would you / Will you take a Covid-19 vaccine?

    Interesting ... I suppose that you might say riding a motorcycle is willfully putting yourself at risk , so if you have an accident its up to you to pay ... I see it more like if the government offered me a free Helite vest and I chose not to wear it and then crashed and was hospitalized for something the Helite would have prevented , but hey, I chose not to wear it ... then yes, I'd still be in the U pay camp.

    Craigslist find of the day

    A K1. I'd still like to have one.

    Would you / Will you take a Covid-19 vaccine?

    THAT is a slippery slope particularly coming from someone who rides a motorcycle....

    Craigslist find of the day

    The owner realizes that someday isn't going to happen and wants to sell. Pictures may take awhile...

    Would you / Will you take a Covid-19 vaccine?

    That's a tangential question .... what to do with folks that refuse ... My proposal would be .... "Ok, no problem we're not going to force you to take a vaccine" .... BUT .... If you get sick with what the vaccine would have prevented and require medical attention YOU PAY ALL THE COSTS ... no insurance ... no Medicare .... no Medicaid ... NO NOTHING .... YOU _PAY_ IT_ ALL ... OH and remember .... it was your choice !!

    Yeah I almost forgot, too bad the weather wasn't more cooperative..

    Would you / Will you take a Covid-19 vaccine?

    I wonder how many schools and work places would require a vaccine?

    R1100s Brake Rotors

    DR-I found a later on-line fiche and see what you mean. It looks like the 5.0 mm rotors and the non-abs calipers and pads are compatible. 04-Thanks for your trouble. I had the problem with the BrakeTech website but then had to go out of town for a few days and put everything on the back burner. I will check the Ferodos out. Thanks, again.

    Would you / Will you take a Covid-19 vaccine?

    Are you kidding me? I am old enough to remember polio epidemics, iron lungs, the March of Dimes, and standing in line to get vaccinated. I turned 74 this year. I have been hospitalized multiple times for asthma and pneumonia. Six years ago I was diagnosed with bronchiectasis. Several thousand dollars of meds a year keep everything under control. Two years ago I got a sinus infection that took 6 weeks and 4 different antibiotics to clear. As soon as medical professionals are all vaccinated, I would gladly roll up my sleeve, even if the vaccine is rated at only 60-70% effective. I just hope I am still alive when a safe and effective vaccine becomes widely available.

    Adaptive Xenon headlight on R1250RT.

    that kind of explains why the RT does not come with adaptive lights. It would put the price of the RT on par with the bigger touring bikes.

    Would you / Will you take a Covid-19 vaccine?

    My wife and I just had this discussion and given the assumptions you posed, yes, absolutely both of us would. Sorry to be so blunt, but the nonvaxer folks are being stupid and you can't fix that.
  20. chrisolson

    Would you / Will you take a Covid-19 vaccine?

    LOL ... no I knew what you meant by "we" ... it was that I took your comment to mean the assumptions were too easy .... that the choice was obvious ... hence the Survey Says comments to indicate that obvious is apparently not all that obvious.

    Would you / Will you take a Covid-19 vaccine?

    Sorry - that was vague of me. I meant we as me, Laura and Jeremiah (my wife and son) - not we as in the US or all humans or whatever. I barely understand myself most times and would not presume to speak for any group.

    Inaccurate fuel level RID

    That is correct, the float arm controls the low fuel light, and the fuel sender, strip, controls the RID. Most likely problem is pretty easy to handle. Increased resistance in the sending circuit leaves you with fewer bars. There’s an electrical connector from the fuel tank on the right side of the tank. Open up the connector and spray both sides with quick dry contact cleaner. Work the two parts together and spray them both again. Then do it again. The RID should go back to ten bars when you fill up. Every time you remove the right side panel for maintenance, clean the connector again. I fill up my 2001 RT on the side stand, and it stays on 10 bars for 30 miles.

    What's the most scenic moto road?

    Obviously more that one and am kind of surprised no one has mentioned CO 141 between Gateway and Uravan, it's like riding thru a downscale version of the Grand Canyon. Or UT 95 between Blanding and Hwy 276. I've done most of the Colorado passes paved and dirt and they're pretty spectacular but southern Utah is like nothing else. A buddy and I did the White Rim Trail out of Moab several years ago, a 100 mile loop inside the confluence of the Colorado and Green Rivers. A lot of it is what you'd see off to the north of Hwy 95 in Canyonlands NP. People do it in Jeeps, on bicycles (takes a couple days), dualsports and GS's. You can see the white rim in the distance, it follows the edge of the two rivers. Probably too many pics but it's a big place and tough to capture with just a couple. The Green River is on the western side.

    This started it all...

    The funny thing was that my next older brother was a hellion and blew the transmission out of the well used second "errand" car, and then flipped the replacement on its side in a snowy field. The third replacement errand car was a nice one and Mom's alone. Next older brother ruined it for me as the day I began driver's ed, my father took me outside and literally pointed to their cars and said I would never be driving them....WTF, I hadn't done anything, but Dad's edicts were typically nonnegotiable! So, when I passed my driving test to get my license, I immediately went in and took the exam to get the learners permit for motorcycles. Mom wasn't happy, but the motorcycle barrier had already been breached by my father, so the family motorcycle was the only option for wheels at that point. It took a year of not screwing up, but dad relented and I could drive Mom's car (proper justification required). In reality I think it was more likely that was Mom nagging him for that year behind the scene that riding a motorcycle in a good sized city was too dangerous that got my father to relent, but it was too late, I was fully hooked on motorcycles and had already saved most of the cash for my own used motorcycle. I only drove Mom's car in the worst of winter months and my motorcycle from March to December.

    Would you / Will you take a Covid-19 vaccine?

    We would take the vaccine, but prefer doing it only once. With 160 types either in trial or soon to be, maybe we will wait for a bit to see if some are better than others. Say in June next, before the UN?

    Would you / Will you take a Covid-19 vaccine?

    And yet with basically the same scenario, apparently a significant percentage of the American public at large doesn't agree ... or a least .... "The survey says ..... " ( with apologies to Family Feud) . I had to assume that before a proper FDA approval that steps 1 and two would / had to be completed. I don't believe, even with the gigantic push and political need of the current President to show progress in this pandemic that we, as a nation, would proceed on a national level without FDA approval. It was also assumed that the FDA approval would not be rushed or politically compromised. This may be wishful thinking given the coming election. It would be a dangerous and odious precedent if political considerations triumphed over medical and ethical considerations. Governmental subsidy was also assumed since otherwise a rich vs poor scenario would arise which would be politically difficult to manage. However, comments / additions / changes in the base assumptions such as a real or perceived "rush" to FDA approval or potential cost for vaccine are welcomed to further the discussion.
