Nobody could get in for several weeks. Glad we are back (in more ways than one).

Re: Well That Was a Surprise...

I have heard other stories about what can go wrong with dental surgery. Very interesting. The good news is that we live in an amazing time for health care in general. Dealing with the bills, the in and out of network charges....that can still use some work. I’m glad to share experiences and “pay for...

Re: Well That Was a Surprise...

Yes, I'm wired together. I had a great surgeon. He said at six weeks the sternum is fused back together (whatever they call that). That was his basis for telling me when I could return to normal activities. I was also "taped" back together. The scar is noticeable, of course. But it does not bother m...

Re: Well That Was a Surprise...

I had the opposite weather problem. Mine was in August in Houston. You cannot underestimate the heat and humidity in Houston...24 hours a day, every day for Five months! Am I riding??? I started riding at about ten weeks after my surgery. I retired Dec.31 and I typically ride four days a week now. ...

I'm sorry to hear your missfortunate Rock. But yes, I know exactly what you are going through. I just had my six month anniversary a few days ago and I'm doing fantastic. I can honestly tell you that my recovery went very well. The secret for me was a very positive attitude and sense of humor. I al...

Re: Any reliable SD-GT's out there?

Seems like a good time to update this thread. I'm at almost exactly one year now. Despite not riding for nearly three months due to open heart surgery, and having two other bikes, I'm just over 10,000 miles now. Zero problems.

New FJR 1300 in my stable

I don't know the best place to post this, but I just traded my 1600 BMW for a new leftover 2017 FJR1300. I had one about ten years ago and loved it. I'm happy to be back on one, especially with all the upgrades they have made. It's my retirement present to myself. I had two 1600 GTs and obviously li...

Re: K&N Airfilter Installed

I'll give you a little more advice. Don't silicone the clips in. Pull them out with a pair of plyers before you take the tank off, and you can slide them back in after the tank is back on. I've done it a few times now. Great idea..... thanks....... makes sense...... the silastic won't hold next tim...

Re: 2019 KTM SDGT Photo's are Out

I have both a SD GT and a 1600GT, my second 1600. Also, the guy I ride with every weekend has a H2 SX (along with a SD-R and FJR). So I have riden all three of your choices. BTW, you should know that Kawasaki dealers are allowed to put an H2 SX in demo service. If you want to travel to Houston I ca...

Re: Anyone know what spare connectors under SAS are for ?

The spare connectors under the seat and behind the instruments are for accessories. In both places one set is switched and one set is hot all the time. I bought the comfort seat and did not like it. It sits too high and seems to be crowned as opposed to "scooped". I found it very uncomfortable. On t...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

I had full Akra system and Power Commander on mine. I dyno'd at 123 stock and 140 after. I also had a Sargent seat that I literary had waiting at home when I took delivery of the bike. You are correct that I didn't get any of the money back out of the mods, but I never expected to either. As to the ...

Re: Dash blanked out after stall and restart

Had another look at the 'fuse box' and there are different height fuses in the centre positions with shorter ones to the outside positions....... so unless they are loose, the step up in the centre is not an issue. My GT fired up nice (as always)...... now if I can just get my body to work as well ...

Re: PR5s

Rock, the PR5's are a large step up from the PR4's, They match the 4's in the wet, but are far away better in the dry, their edge grip is great, no vagueness or squirming on the throttle compared to the 4's. I wasn't a big fan of the OEM Angels, they were ok, but the PR5s are a far better all-round...
