Now that you're in Texas you have to get some Bar-B-Que, Chicken Fried Steak and Tex-Mex. ( Chicken Enchiladas w/Sour Cream Sauce is a good choice )

Chicken filet in Lufkin yesterday was very nice - food seems to be exceptional in this part of the world!
Looking forward to the Cook Off in Houston today... I am not sure what it is but I have a couple of tickets to sample the food so my weight loss program is on the ropes....

When on vacation a diet is out of the question. It's a time to try some of the odd local foods. The "Testicle Festival" in Montana comes to mind. I believe that's in August though.

Thanks, I shall check it this morning. I would not be surprised if it was u/s! I was fitting the ring for the tank bag yesterday and I noticed that 2 of the handlebar clamp bolts were loose - the bars moved when I was pushing the bike! I appreciate they are rubber mounted but I could see the top clamp move! The mirrors were also loose and flapping in the breeze! All tightened up now but it is a bit worrying that no "pre-delivery" inspection was done on a new bike...
I have checked most nuts and bolts but I have a very limited toolkit.

Don't come. We defeated you back in 1776 and have gotten rid of all Loyalists since then.






J/k? Good luck!

On EARLY Gens, some brake caliper mounting bolts were LOOSE from the factory, so I'd check those for sure. I KNOW the values are slightly different on your '15, but specs for my '08 are: front 25'/#; rear 18'/#.

I seem to recall that Gen 3s are 25'/# for both ends.
