    I had emailed the FB guy in Thailand about those covers, and never heard back. Yikes $780 for replacement is ludicrous!

    Anyone know of a source for short/standard frame pucks in the US?

    To take the wheel off, you can buy the fancy official socket tool from Buell.

    Or a easier and cheaper alternative is to find a spark plug socket and use it in reverse. Some of them have a hex...

    I think those iron plated deer would be tough, even for broadheads.

    Occam's Razor would suggest that the simplest answer is the correct one, but this never seems to work for motorcycles.

    Happy Holiday folks! As we couch surf in our post-turkey haze, thought I'd stir the pot and give us something to debate. And for me to learn more about our bikes.

    First off, please don't take...

    Hey Squid, you're in the SF Bay Area?
