if it doesn't work, and you're stuck at the light, rock your bike backwards, and then forwards again, the moving metal at a slow speed generally trips it.

If you do get a trailer I suggest tie down anchors and wheel chocks from black & gray

They've got every piece you'd even need to fasten a bike into a trailer.

how old? If it's pretty old then it's more likely it's not used-used and more like used-ignored. Which means make sure you play nice and make Real Good with the servicing and winterising and such.

What kind of miles on each? What condition each? What accessories each?

If all other things are the same, I'd go Marauder only because it's newer.

Re: Monster 695 or Z1000 or Ninja 650R

What on EARTH gives you the idea that you're so skilled as to find a Ninja 650R a thing of boredom? Are you a stunt rider? Do you regularly drive vans through a ...

They ARE called sliders... \/\/

On Harley dressers, that's known as a beer can holder and, yes, I suppose it feeds the power steering unit, so to speak.
