    Well it looks like its time for new boots. :(

    A little Shoe Goo and you'll be back in business. Just did my 9 year old Sidi's last week and worked great. Can pick it up at Walgreens. :beerchug:

    For the sake of not scratching up your rim, I would remove it. Only 3 bolts. :beerchug:

    New Busa Cruiser

    I have the clutch adjusted but why do you suggest a spare cable? Are they known for breaking? I'm actually 6'8" so I'm looking for comfort mods like a cut seat and forward foot controls. I think the bars will work where they're at for now.

    New Busa Cruiser

    Thanks for the heads up. :beerchug: Clutch cable is already adjusted with a little play. And I've read all about the oil change issues and I'm really not too concerned. I've changed enough oil in my life that I think I can make it happen without it puking. We shall see. :please:

    New Busa Cruiser

    Just a follow up to my "Second Bike" thread. Picked up my new M109 today. Couldn't be happier. Well I guess the weather could cooperate and I could be riding. Sky Powersports of Lakeland, FL had outstanding service and the price was great too. Big thanks to Joe and Chris :thumbsup:

    Tire buying.

    So I received my tires from Rocky Mountain today. They came wrapped in plastic. No damage or other issues. There was some of the grey splatter as noted in a previous post but was minimal. Also, they wrapped a copy of the Dunlop rebate form along with the bill of sale in with the tires. In...

    Sometimes you just have to scream at them!!!!

    You got off easy. I tried every method out there and still broke all 8. I didn't change them until 150K so partially my fault. Took just over 8 hours for me. My most recent dealing with Ford engineering is an oil leak that developed about 6 months ago. Appeared to be the oil pan gasket or rear...

    Second Bike???

    Thanks for the replies everyone. :beerchug: I went ahead and pulled the trigger today. Picking up the 109 on Thursday. Got it for 11,900 OTD. I couldn't find anything even close to that within 500 miles. I guess depending on the route and the crowd I'm with will determine the bike for the...

    Second Bike???

    So I've run across a great deal on a new 2013 M109R in black. My question is, do those of you who have multiple bikes tend to favor one while the other(s) just sit? ???

    Tire buying.

    Had quotes from local shops ranging from 375 to 405 installed. Have a friend that works at Goodyear who will mount them for me. He can't balance them there so I'll just do without. Never had a problem with vibration. I'll take pics when they arrive. Should be here Monday.

    Rocky Mountain definitely had the best price. Just ordered some Q3's for 233.98 shipped. :thumbsup:
