Sure, but he’s trading it in. It’s gonna sit, there.
I didn't read where he mentioned trading it in - the OP isn't very clear on whether he traded in, or just bought another bike.
oops
k, so I took the R1200 in for a valve check.
ya, a lawyer might say I may have had thoughts on trading it, as I had the spare keys and title with me. :ROFLMAO:
The fact now stands that it was traded in.

well?
ya, that didn't sound right...
I have always acted safe for others, just not necessarily for me.
i.e. I ALWAYS ride safe, am respectful, and ALWAYS behave.
I've just kind of cheap'd out before, like cheaper helmet, no armor, etc which I'm now addressing.

n/a
I should caveat my comment by saying, price is NOT a good indicator as to quality of safety gear.

Expensive does not necessarily equal better.

And a-lot-more-expensive may only mean marginally better.
