    Coming back from surgery

    both are legitimate concerns, even if the air in California is as dry as a popcorn fart, right now. We are having our infamous Santa Ana winds, but we DID have rain as late as April.

    Coming back from surgery

    you’re right. It would be foolhardy to split lanes in LA traffic at this point. Just a short rides around the neighborhood after a couple of weeks of physical therapy. Appreciate the advice. off-topic, and definitely no offense, but riding in Arkansas is a formidable task, particularly with the...

    Coming back from surgery

    you’re right, it was serious. I appreciate the cautionary note. I just started physical therapy and may want to wait for a few weeks longer, particularly for a big girl like the S10. All I have is time at this point. :cool:

    Coming back from surgery

    I had the same thought regarding the battery. I’m sure there’s a battery tender around my garage somewhere…

    Coming back from surgery

    Hi All - I haven’t ridden since February of this year, as I have been tending to health issues and am healing nicely. Anyway, I’ve had my S10 slumbering since that time and I live in SoCal, so I didn’t winterize it or anything like that. As I’ve now been given approval for short rides, I’m...

    SENA PRISM wifi tube camera

    Mine is the Sena Prism Tube without WiFi. Very basic. The resolution is good enough to where I can see the license plates of cars as I ride by....unless it’s nighttime. Then the reflection of light off of the plate makes the plates letters and numbers impossible to read. It’s no GoPro in...

    SW Motech crash bars installation.

    Alt rider is definitely a good brand. Outback Motortech looks pretty sturdy, as well.

    SW Motech crash bars installation.

    alas, I lacked the patience that @SHUMBA had referenced and thanks to the reseller’s generous return policy, the crash bars have already been sent back and my money has been refunded. I’m looking at another brand right now with a fellow S10 owner, so we’ll likely each purchase one and help each...

    Glad that it all worked out for you. And, as others have noted, the red looks hot!

    SW Motech crash bars installation.

    @pkelly20 , yes, I’ve crossed threaded bolts in the past and am usually pretty good about catching myself, but you’re right, there’s always the possibility of end user error. I can only note that I made several attempts, and it seemed to me that the hole for the front mount on the left side...

    SW Motech crash bars installation.

    Thanks, Paul (@pkelly20), for your detailed explanation. I, too, initially followed the instructions for removing the engine mounts one at a time. When this didn’t work, I proceeded to remove both engine bolts —-unfortunately, with no success. I ultimately returned the item and I am seriously...

    SENA PRISM wifi tube camera

    I don’t have the Wi-Fi version, but the Sena tube prism that I do have is very easy to install and use. And the price is much more reasonable than a go pro.

    SW Motech crash bars installation.

    Well, crap, I’m outside the window of time for a return, so a modification may be in order, after all @Cycledude. BTW, when the manufacturer discusses having to remove the rubber crossbar in order to install the crash bars, are they referring to the two protectors that are underneath the lower...
