    Before I shave off my "Amish" beard, any ideas how I can keep it and wear a full face helmet without yanking hair.

    • I've seen on Discovery Channel these guys that work at a brewry wear beard hair nets. Maybe that?

    • maybe

    • It's so hot here in AZ usually, that I wear a quarter helmet and installed a Memphis Fats windshield. Try clear coating the beard. That way you only style it once a week and it beads off water. J/K

    • I took a quick look at your wall and loved it (especially the political side). Sent you a friend request. Anyway, from your picture, the beard doesn't look like t would be much trouble, but I'm guessing you've grown it out quite a bit since then?? If so, maybe just a trim will do.

    Looking for a replacement seat for my 1994 Shadow. Would like to just replace the passenger seat but cannot find any. Will go with replacing both similar to the Mustang wide touring.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    • I was looking for something more along the line of products. I have Kuryakyn iso flame grips and they are great. I have looked at iso pegs, cobra and others. If anyone has a peg to suggest for retrofit. Installation and overall satisfaction. Thanks for the tip.

    • Have installed the Mustang Vintage Wide, new battery that I got on Amazon for $30, got the acid locally and saved a bunch, replacement riser and am waiting for the UPS man to drop off the new 20" sissy bar and pad. All I need now is my new foot pegs and change the oil. Have already got 250 miles for the season.

    • Do it up!

    My Rebel actually started after sitting all Winter. Yet as soon as I would try to give it some throttle it wanted to stall out. I even let the choke be involved and it had no change in the matter for keeping it running. I'm thinking the plugs may need replaced. Plus the gas that is in the tank is the same that has been in it since I parked it for the Winter.

    • I stored mine which is a 1986 Honda rebel 450 with premium gas with seafoam and it started on first try on Saturday ....its what my local bike shop told me to do to store it over winter...but mine is cold blooded to in the mornings

    • Well great news my Rebel is up and running and she doesn't stall at all. I am so happy! Now tomorrow I will spend time cleaning her up. I did as suggested and drained the tank completely. Took out the old plugs as well. So she has new plugs and a full tank of mid grade gas with the proper amount of Sea Foam in it too. Now if I just had someone to ride with. Well I will have to get my plates/sticker renewed which I will do on Tuesday but once that is done i will be riding the wind.

    • Jerry: I gave the same advice you gave me to the hubby for his bike. Granted he has a Triumph but after sitting longer than mine had been he definately needs to drain the tank. His bike isn;t nearly as easy and service friendly as The Rebel. :)

    • It's a first gen Aero. These have district features on them that the post 03 Aeros don't. This is most definitely an Aero.

    • Yeah it an aero lol. Me and Jeremy have the bike. Notice the neck guard.. rake.. headlight.. rear fender trim. engine and long shots lay as they should. I have before and after pics of the project also.. It was a black and blue bike actually just like our bikes.

    • Awesome. Looks great

    • Nice ride...my 01 ACE is titanium and white...got an urge to take the sissy bar/rear seat/ bags off a week ago..sort of like the old school look.

    • Hi, my husband & I have the same bike, it is the 2004 aero model. A great cruiser, black & silver wtih the red in the middle. We do not have the windshield on it. He got me a great back seat rest & it is very comfy for me. Love to ride along the Atlantic Ocean in Palm Beach, FL. BE HAPPY & RIDE SAFE!!

    Had a guy pull out in front of me and my wife on the bike the other day. Laid on the brakes screeching and wobbling. Scared us to death. He came about 4 inches from hitting us and we nearly laid the bike down. He never stopped to check on us and just kept going. Everyone ride safe and watch out for the ones not paying attention!

    • Glad you are both ok. Friends of ours we not so lucky 2 yrs this April same thing he was killed instantly and she was in hospital for 8 months, can happen in a blink of an eye. Ride safe everyone.

    • Had one of my neighbors do that to me. Now she goes around the block to avoid going past my house.

    • I had to walk down to my neighbors and explain in short words why I wanted to rip his head off. He still swears he never saw me. He still ducks his head in shame. If everyone of us can talk with one person from work and start spreading the word around that we are out there it may save a life.

    Well I dropped of my shadow to have the 600 mile service completed... also having RideOn put in the front and back tires... Hope it is everything they claim... I have read a lot of negative comments about what it will do to the wheel. on a tubeless tire.. nothing bad about being in a tube..

    • Any "flat repair in a can" will cause damage to an aluminum wheel, and it also degraded the inner liner of the tire. Well, at least auto tires.. tubes are made of a different rubber compound, so it doesn't affect them.you'd be amazed at the damage I've seen on wheels......chrome, aluminum.......it eats away like a termite in wood

    • as for the led lights, I run green but then again, my bike is mercedes pearl green over black so it was a natural choice.

    • I think I am going to ad a 2nd color... I love the blue during the day.. puts little blue diamond on all the chrome that you can only see from about 10' away or closer... turns heads at a stop light.. I will add another strip for night.

    • cool.. We have AutoZone and Advanced Auto right next to each other.. so I went into both and AutoZone's just cost less.... I am not suggesting one type over another... just check the lights to make sure they look the way you want... some are not as bright

    • I work for Honda of America, but in my of time, i assistant manage the Advance Auto Parts here in town. Any of the Auto parts companies will generally price match a competitor. Personally I have never cared for Zone, as I get all my parts from Carquest or Advance or Honda. But i do know for a fact that Advance has pink lights in either the the 12,24, or 36 inch lengths, or you can order them online and have them shipped to your house, or the store

    • cool.. I have nothing against Advanced and I didn't know they price matched.. thanks for that info... I don't care for the AutoZone here because they are rude... but they did cost less... if I had known I would have asked AA to price match... Thanks again

    • one issue is, because it IS lighter than air, it also floats better. lol

    • meaning it can increase risk of waterplaning in certain conditions.

    • yes 65 mph is most i chance it they are so light beween bumps and wind you could get in a wrck easily!
