JUST WAITING TO RIDE!:interesting:

:huh: The gps mounts look good but I think I'LL just keep my garmin in my pocket and pull over when needed. My coffe cup is going in that spot!
Discovering Malaysia these days with the versys, yes good place to cruise but the tropical rain can sometime ceate hell for riders.
When you get a bike you think you own it and after sometime its the other way around. It owns you and your life changes. :p

safe ride:goodluck:
:cheers:

We got mosoon seasons but we also got some leak somewhere. It rains when it like. Morning can be bright sky and then evening it will pour like hell. Most of us avoid rain and ride only on STFW-Subject to fair weather.

We are sitting pretty in some of the wettes region in the world. Well thats what tropical climate is all about...NO SNOW OF COURSE but floods:D

:cheers:

IMO If you’re in it you’re driving, if you’re on it you’re riding... and if you’re pegs are getting close to the ground, you move the `g’ into the cornering force column because then you’re really Ridin’ :yeahsmile:

Also, even though I never used to... I’ve come to dislike the term “Biker” a bit. To me (especially when it’s said by the uninitiated) it seems to be too often used (unfortunately) as a synonym for Bad-Ass. Whenever someone asks me if I’m a ”Biker”, I tell them, “No, I’m a Rider... No tattoos and I hate to cruise.” ;)

Oh yeah, it’s definitely a Bike. Motorcycles are what Motorcyclists ride... and those are folks who only bought it because it was an economical way to commute... :)

From the book: “Hardware’s Custom Definitions for Everything” :rolleyes:
