One of my winter rituals is spending some time combing through many forums gear sections looking for hidden gems. I'm a total sucker for well designed, inventive and well made tools. Some of which I actually use  Headscratch I'm thinking THIS might be one I'll gamble on.


Looks amazing ! I love thoughtful design. Hopefully, the extensions click together ...

Bubba, you have to chill. You're dealing with a troll, not a human being. I know sometimes it's difficult to spot them, hell whole countries have fallen for them, but trust me here, this is a troll. Best to consider his posts for what they are, a bit of flatulence, politely ignore them and move on. Don't feed (him/her/it) and they will eventually get tired of the effort and move on.

 I have used my Motion Pro bead breaker set a few times now. It actually works quite well. Not saying this isn't great...just that there are alternatives. Oh, BTW, I am a Dynaplug believer now too. Thanks for the tip. I have used it 5 times in the last 2 years, including once on my truck (4 plugs for one hole, but fixed!)

Dan and I just came back from the Swiss Moto Show in Zürich. We hadn't gone in a few years and I was reminded why  

There were soooo many people were there! I mean, I know that it is "good for business" to have hundreds of people crawling over the bike displays and fingering the gear, but...there were so many that I couldn't even see most of the bikes. And since I'm fortunate enough to have the gear I want and the accessories I want, most of the other booths had nothing for me. People stop in the middle of the aisle and check their phone. Others stand there, chatting with a service rep, heedless that they are blocking the way. Argh! I hate people.  Bash  Dan and I wanted to see two specific bikes, and neither of them were there  Sad   We did, however, sit on the Husqvarna 701 and liked it enough to warrant further investigation  Inlove

The day even started badly: I had purchased the tickets online with a train/ticket deal, but we still had to wait in line to exchange those tickets for "different" tickets so we could get through the turnstile. So what was the point?


On a positive note, we had a really nice lunch afterwards before heading home!  Bigok

I could be riding, but the driveway and last km of road to the farm are currently a mud bog, so I am waiting for drier roads, and shopping for parts to get my 350 Four the way I want it. Could even be riding the XT350 for a bit, and I may leave the Norge off the road until June! For the sake of my license, I probably won't ride the LeMans or the Buell X1 this year, as my inner hooligan has ZERO self control on these bikes!  Bigsmile

 I'm down to twenty  Bigsmile but I expect to be closer to twenty five again before too long! LOL. I'm trying to upgrade my extras into all the bikes I really wanted over the years. I expect I will end up around 15-20.

Seems you are suffering from acute BAS. The only treatment is to ride em, not buy em.

 I'm trying to ride them! LOL. I usually end up licensing three bikes every year, but not usually the same three. Only the Norge will carry over to this year. I am a fan of having the perfect tool for each job, as well as having a few Swiss Army knives! Pretty sure I will have another Stelvio by the end of the year...
