Re: I need help with an electrical issue.

This was never an 'electrical issue', its pilot error.

Good luck.

Re: Idea: January/February Southern Arizona Rally in Quartzsite

Time to BUMP this thread! It is looking like I may be able to head on out to Quartzsite and Quartzfest this coming winter....If so, my target time frame is late January and into early February. I missed it for 2020, weird year all around, but hopefully 2021 will be a better year for ALL of us. Anyon...

Re: Hand Pain

I guess any aftermarket throttle lock will have issues for some users. But I have had the Omni-Cruise on both of my Urals and it works well for me. Again, I remove it when I'm not 'cruising' down the open road...for in-town use, I just tuck it away, out of sight.

Re: Van Got "Karen'ed"

I don't know where tx2stugis gets his news, but let me politely say it isn't from any major news source that fact-checks their stories. That seems disrespectful. But your respect is not needed or even asked for. That's a moderators job, not mine. This is exactly why politics goes south in a hurry. ...

Re: Hand Pain

Best aftermarket throttle lock I have ever used:

Not cheap. But they work well. Easily moved from one bike to another.

When not being used I remove it and drop it in a storage pouch on the fairing.

Re: Van Got "Karen'ed"

I agree with the above text, but the link is non-functional for me (ad blocker blocker) so I am not agreeing or disagreeing with it. But if the man in the Central Park video had been white and the woman had been an older black lady, would the media refer to her as a 'mammy'? I think not. And I'm not...

Re: Van Got "Karen'ed"

Perhaps the most reported one was "Central Park Karen" in NYC She was walking her dog in Central Park with the dog off its leash. A black man who was watching birds very politely asked her to please put her dog on a leash. She freaked out, called the police, said a black man was threatening her lif...

Re: Night time riding...

Middle of a heat wave here, we hit 110 degrees every day for a week! I was riding on the hot pavement the other day, and the pavement was literally melting...getting gooey...my shoes stuck to the pavement goo at a couple of traffic lights...(I'm riding a Solo, before you say huh?)...that was weird.....

Re: WTB- in Colorado No longer. I now have one.

It sure looks like the same bike, here are a few pics, from way back in 2015...my bike is (was) the Green Patrol, and another friend of mine was on his camo Gear-Up.'

Re: WTB- in Colorado No longer. I now have one.

Hey I rode that bike...one time....Mr Cob was in Amarillo for a visit, and we traded bikes for a short ride...

At least, I THINK it was that bike...he owns so many...who really knows?

Re: WTB- in Colorado No longer. I now have one.

I heard the tank 'tool box' was actually put there back in wartime to carry a small semi auto handgun. Of course, back then there was a thumb or twist lock, not a key operated lock. It IS just about the right size for a small-framed pistol.

But as pointed out above, who REALLY knows....

Re: engine accelerates w/o using throttle

Its a tongue-in-cheek joke that apparently went over your head. The little emoji is a hint. So many owners have heard things like that from the dealers, its a standard 'joke' now days. When the answers have been provided, and the problem is on its way to being solved, its kind of obvious it's a joke...
