I used to get so angry at drivers on my scooter once a day on average, and after awhile I realized it's just not worth it. I get worked up so I'm no longer in the right state of mind to operate any vehicle let alone something with just two wheels. The tipping point was when a guy actually got out of his vehicle which fortunately just turned out to be a heated face to face argument.

I simply just shrug it off. cause people will always try to make you feel bad or think they are always right. When people try to intimidate me or try to start a confrontation. I just ask them if they're mad, cause I ain't and move on. At this point some people rethink to themselves while other are irritated and make themselves look like idiots. Either way, I don't let that shit bother me. I just ride defensively and typically I catch anything before it happens. They on the other hand are probably still boiling. Not my problem.. LOL I ain't mad.

Let me know the best place locally. Have the day off which I wasn't expecting so would like to pick it ip
Canadasmotorcycle sells them for $512, holeshot does sell them at $494.99 for the hbc-200 dual pack. But sold out due to shipper not having supply.

I'll call second gear in the morning I suppose and see

I recently bought Alpinestars textile pants after deciding they would probably be safer than jeans. I can't imagine riding even a block now without proper riding pants. That said - in hindsight I wish I had spent aittle more and purchased leather pants. The textile quality is simply okay and certainly a disposable, single-use product in a fall whereas the leather pants word be much more robust.

That said - I can imagine leather is very hot on a hot day.

Anyone use knee pucks while riding? Any recommendations? I'm hoping to just get the pants and not a full suit.

kevlar jeans are nice but remember, it has no padding or armour. You can always knee and shin armour underneath if there is enough space.

I want the 20S just for the FM radio. I like listening to the Z95 til about 8am to play along with the $2,000 minute then listen to my own stuff afterwards. I know I can stream radio from my phone which I do but I can't change radio stations without interacting with the phone.

You're not going fast enough.

I kid. I quickly found out recently that I prefer riding in the fall, winter, and spring.

Speaking of summer riding, has any of you ever had a bee or wasp get into your gear? That's my one biggest fear.
