        If I buy one, can we talk on a regular basis?

          Already did a few free mods to it. Both headlights come on now for low beam, and disabled the kickstand switch. Scoot would only start with kickstand up.... that was annoying.

          $17/yr insurance isn't bad either....
          What year? 125 I presume?

          I love mine, 2008, and do the same thing with my son, but he's 10 (but small for 10). I added some cool Chinese rear footpegs as well that pop out with the push of a button and did the dual headlight mod too. Stock otherwise. Took it for about 20-25 mile ride last evening. I have no reservation about riding it anywhere other than Expressways. With my big ass, 55-57 is no problem on flat roads.

          Good to know! I desire to throw it over but with being 250 makes that idea not a good one!

            Probably. Maybe. It all depends. 2 meter VHF would require several repeater hops, so to talk simplex, radio to radio, you'd need the lower frequency HF bands. Radio and power are small part of the equation, freq band and antenna details make all the difference. Fairly new to amateur radio (but not rf and electronics) and only have Tech license at the moment but will be upgrading. So you'd need to get that as well. Tech is easy, then General, then Extra. Each one opening up frequency bands and modes of operation. Tests cover technical and regulatory stuff mostly.

            Do it man. Cool stuff and lots to learn.

                    Yep, spent many $100s back when he was PJsParts. Not so much lately but only because he doesn't have much for the FJR.

                      I send people in the facebook groups there all the time! Probably three times this week. People looking for brakes, Rizoma, Givi, whatever. I always send them his way.

                      • 2 robots:

                        iRobot Roomba 801:



                        Maytronics Dolphin Nautilus CC Plus pool cleaner:



                        Both arrived today, so we put them to work immediately. No grace period.

                        I've been keeping up with the pool pretty well, but it takes a lot of time. Even with good chemistry, it's a lot of manual work to clean out the debris that falls to the bottom. And you never really get it all out. The first hour of pool robot use picked up a lot of silt, many small leave particles, and a bunch of roly polies. I guess roly polies don't float like most other bugs. When vacuuming the pool by hand, I'd seen the silt get kicked up as I vacuumed it, but it's very hard to actually pick it up. The robot seems to do a great job of this.

                        This roomba does not memorize rooms. It has a 'find perimeter' kind of algorithm that figures out the perimeter of the room, but then doesn't care where the furniture is. It seems to do a great job. We had a pool party for the kids from church yesterday, so there was a lot of grass and leaf particles, and some dirt, tracked in by them near the back door. It picked up all that stuff. I thought it would leave some of the residue stuck to the floor but it worked surprisingly well. (we have bamboo flooring in that area)

                        So far I give both machines good marks.

                          • There is an art to using a pool vacuum to clean the fine silt by not disturbing it until you are right over top of it. I tried a battery operated stick vac on a small 10 ft diameter pool. All the fine dirt went right through it's filter.

                            • Got one of these guys for my Concours as there is an air bubble in the rear caliper that is impossible to get out. Everyone on the Concours forum uses one of those hand pumps that I find difficult to use with the reservoir just dangling. So opted for this baby. Hopefully, I may start bleeding brakes for $$ so I make up what I invested into this baby.

                              • +1000 on the Roomba. Had one for about 10 years now, re-celled the battery pack a couple times. Keeps hard floors tidy with minimal effort.
