Because AAA covers bikes if you buy the highest end coverage...?

I was just hoping that they'd be willing to cover the bike since it's not like it has to get towed.

I should join the AMA. I tried to before but had some issues with it and forgot.

Yup! You gotta have RV coverage to get your bike included!

It costs like $27 a year more. My bike is 17 years old, so worth it. Even used it once when the throttle cable broke.

Yeahhhh that was mostly a sarcastic suggestion...they look alright on dual-sports or dirtbikes...not so much for a street bike. :lol:

Could put one in your backpack, but meh.  I'm gessing this won't happen to you again any time soon. :lol:

Hopefully not. :lol:

It might be a good idea to keep a bottle in my backpack for longer trips, though.;

My friend just came by and has one of those fuel bottles strapped to his bike. Should be enough to get me to the gas station.

One time me and my buddy were pedding and he ran outta gas. Luckily I had a water bottle that we dumped and filled off of my tank to get him back.

For longer trips, definitely not a bad idea. I've considered it as well, but I've yet to run into a situation where I've needed it what with 230's insane fuel sippage.  Once I have a bigger bike that drinks fuel though...yeah.

Why is this potato?

$800 exhaust on a $4500 bike with a questionable history owned by a guy who can't own a bike for more than 6 months before swapping.

Definitely potato.

I've been low key lurking on CL for another 954 actually. :lol:

If I can find a decent deal on one with less miles in better shape without this questionable history I will do it.

So FWIW, Woodcraft has very, very good customer service. They are the distributor for Hindle in the US, and I emailed them asking if they could get me the setup I wanted even though it wasn't on their site. They emailed back within a few hours saying they could, and follow up emails were responded to within 30 min each time.

Then today the lady called me and just verified everything on the phone. It will be probably the first week of March by the time I get it but it will be so worth it. :wub:

Finally got around to buying a new clutch lever, clutch pivot bolt and some crush washers today. I hate the aftermarket clutch lever on there right now so I just bought a stock replacement.
