, sure got me on that one. Quick question...what's brass metal? probably meant brass, metal, and rubber. In either case, I guess you were so worried about correcting my statement about the wire that you didn't realize that brass IS a metal.

El Tigre 1050
WR426 Blue Hooligan Motard ---once back together

Honda dood (Not Bevo ) just doesn't grasp how tech can assist in making bikes better.
F.I. made those long trips much more fun. Having to crank up the idle when living @ sea level, then riding to the mountains, much more fun.

LED driving lights: I can see all kinds of stuff when I am getting stoopit at night.

GPS.....thats all that needs to be said.

As for TMPS.......lets take my Tiger 1050 for example. Sometimes I am loaded down with two boxes and camping gear, I can set my pressure at 33 psi, when it heats up it sets right at 37 psi and stays there, when riding "naked" I may set the psi at 35, holds steady at 38 psi in the summer, and maybe at 36 psi in winter.
I would not have that advantage without my Fobo. I can now get an extra 1000 miles out of my round rubber things.....not my , Urban...besides they are SolRacers, I am just storing them so his wife unit does not find out.

To call someone lazy, especially here, where we all actually RIDE on a pretty regular basis, is just pure ignorance. Most of the people here I would, or have, ride with, are very skilled and knowledgeable ( about stupid crotch rockets anyways) about what they are doing. Except for some water crossings, those kick a few peoples ' around here

The side note on the TPMS is I dont need to keep a gauge, even if another rider wants to check his/hers, I can just swap it out and let him know.

Thats all I gotta say about that.
