Congrats on the new bike!!!!

I pick my British Racing Green '09 Classic AVL up Saturday (the 15th).  ;D

Thanks for the info on the insurance issues. I had Progressive on my previous bikes. How does Geico compare in price for similar coverage on the same rider?

Thumper,

Nada.  I'm talking about the warning light bezel, you know, the low fuel and ML display.  I reckon I can do something simple like run her dry, toast the fuel pump and see which one lights...... :)

I have an '05 Gear Up some rich guy bought and broke within 1900 km.  He traded it in at the Victory dealership where I got two of my bikes from and I picked it up for $5k.  Took me about a week to fix her, and wouldn't you know, I've gotten to fix her every couple weeks since.  No dealers around.  I've had it for about 18 months and have about 11,000 of my miles on her.  The Vegas has had to share time so she's maybe only pulled 10,000 since the Ural showed up.  I sold the Vic to buy the C5.

For the Ural, ALL I've had to fix were 1,244,862 wiring problems, weld the left front turn signal back on, repair the final drive, leaky head gasket, rejet, shim the carbs after I installed a air cleaner NOT designed (like the Rusky one) to aspirate rain and snow, on my third set of carb flanges,  yada, yada, yada.  A work in progress.

Anyway, any ne know what color wires the ML and check engine bulbs have?

Gotta laugh.  Really.  Learned to laugh owning the Ural. 



 :D :D :D  Right there with ya!  I have a 2002 Tourist and promised my wife I wouldn't buy another "breaky-downy" bike as my son calls it. We love that bike, but it helps if you/helps you have a  sense of humor
