Re: To Ride an Iron Horse - Jack of the Green's Blog

LoL, we were discussing the other day if the forums would enjoy a real-time Chat room, this exchange is evidence that it might. :) Are you not happy with Gloria, or are you just that much a fan of the Tiger? I know you had a thing for the SuperT years ago, so the Tiger would be in your wheelhouse fo...

Re: To Ride an Iron Horse - Jack of the Green's Blog

LoL Blues, that would be a really complicated delivery but what an elegant solution!

Is the 1100 the one you just bought? Gloria?

Excited to see you back on the forums, Blues!

No idea on the problem you're having with staying logged in. I use Google Chrome and it works flawlessly, but I do experience exactly the problem you're describing when I try to post from my work computer. Maybe firewall settings?

Re: Riding partners?

I know Jack O' the Green's wife got him into riding and can't help feeling just a little jealous to have such a partner. That may be the first time I've been name-dropped on here! Thanks for the warm fuzzies! Yes, Carrie got me into riding, and she rides her own bikes. She's ridden on the back of e...

Dinner at the Iron Cactus Mexican Grill and Margarita Bar! Delicious food and excellent drinks, if you've never tried Mescal before you should. Excellent flavor.

Show starts tomorrow at 3! Come back to see all the fun!

Re: Need a bike for highway and some dirt roads...

I'll give a +1 vote for the Versys 1000, an excellent all-around bike without the huge price tag of some of the other ones you listed. Something else you might want to consider is Yamaha's Tenere 700. It will be available early summer 2020, and priced at $9,999, which is a huge deal for the segment....

Re: Helmet Habits

I used to go to a local dealer to get a new helmet, always looking for sales. Now, without such a stocking dealer, I need to buy on line. I've tried twice in the last year to try different brand/sizes with no luck. Perhaps I should make a new post. I really want to hear what everyone else is doing....

Re: Helmet Habits

I have five helmets, all bought new for $100 or less. Of course...I don't wear any of them, but after a 12yr hiatus from this forum nobody is left of the old group to run me out of here for it! :shooting: LoL, I'll admit it was a shock to see a screen name I'd never seen before with a Legendary 300...

Helmet Habits

I'm curious to see what people actually spend on their helmets, so I'm running this poll. It'll be something to do or talk about during the slow season too. Responses are, of course, anonymous, but if you want to sound off feel free to do so. New purchases only. Don't include responses for helmets y...

Re: Fuel problem

The problem is the condition of your carburetors, not the fuel delivery to them. They need to be cleaned up really good and might need some care beyond that even. Get a shop manual for your bike and follow the procedures for carb servicing.
