    Didn't Polaris purchase Brammo several years ago?

    If I recall correctly, Kawasaki motorcycles was always a sort of hobby for the KHI execs. Hopefully they will be able to stand on their own.

    The Ignore function works quite nicely. It is something that I was glad to discover.
    You can always peek if you choose to do so, but then you just rememeber why you chose Ignore in the first place.

    So nice to make fun of new riders for not being at your skill level.
    Still wondering why newbies have flocked away from this site?

    Yes, that is why I went through so many X-11s. With the -12 there was a subtle shape change and the fit was off. The only way to go was to choose a helmet one size too large and then pad it down....

    Finally, a trackday last Sunday. I wore the RF-SR for the first time. It's REALLY quiet! I was impressed. No, it does not fit as well as my Arai Signet X, but I did not expect it to. The RF-SR fit is...

    That sounds pretty reasonable to me, but the way that I do things is that I got a black helmet to match my boots and gloves. The 'new' bike is blue though.

    The RF-SR is also very, very, highly rated for impact protection performance. I picked one up as a new trackday helmet when I noticed that my X-12 was over eight years old.

    There's no particular pressure deficit that increases risk of tire failure. The issue is heat build-up. A tire could be 50% underinflated and never be a failure risk if the rider only travels at low...

    If the rear wheel is not aligned with the chassis there will always be some side push being delivered to the bike. It may be minor, but it will still always need steering compensation. How good is...

    It's only worth $2k if you are trying to sell it. It is worth a lot more if you enjoy riding it.

    Wheel alignment usually does not cause intermittent drag unless the tire is rubbing and what is felt is the differences between tread blocks and grooves starting and stopping drag.

    Why not remove the chain, reinstall the rear wheel, then give it a spin? With the chain disconnected you will know which end of the system is having issues.

    I knew where to find values for older machines but not where to look for something fairly current. I was able to find out that my two older bikes (1975 and 1982) are more valuable than my "new" 2008.
