At least I'm still walking (limping) and talking. Coulda been worse.

Out for a ride yesterday and noticed that it sounded like I had an exhaust leak on the left side near the muffler.

Got it home and let it cool. Sure enough, all four tabs were broken off the muffler where it clamps down on the crossover pipe. Disassembled it and welded the tabs back on. Let it cool and re-installed the muffler. Good as new! Rode it to work this morning.

Glad you're OK...hey if your saddlebag supports/crash bars took a lick, pay close attention to where they mount..see if there is a bend there..if there is, it may be a goner...

If you love your freedom, thank a Vet!!

I literally had these in my hands today at the dealer. Did you have to buy any of their modules for running them?

I have them set up as running lights only, the way I read it multi function would require it

Dropped the bike in the parking lot as I was doing a small turn to walk it into the motorcycle spot. I knew I needed air in my tire, because last night my front said 12psi and my rear said 24psi. No damage though and I knew something like that would happen but was running late to work and figured I'll be safe to park it and go to the gas station next to work.

Lesson learned, I believe this is the first time in 4 years that I've ever checked my tire pressure. Tires are now 40psi each.

I washed it for the first time in a year, since I hardly ever get to ride. My lower fairing screw for the back is stripped and I can't remove the lower fairings to get painted now.

Wow, this is shocking to read, if you do nothing else, please don't neglect your tire pressure. While I agree, not necessary to check on every ride, but once a month couldn't hurt, and especially before long rides!
