As much as I like the looks of the Continental GT, its styling only appeals to a small number of people who remember and like the days of the Cafe Racer.

RE would be wise to offer folding spring loaded foot pegs in a forward (normal) position, regular RE C5 handlebars and a 2 person seat, creating a new model of that motorcycle.  Something that non-racers could ride in a sit up and beg rider position.

If they did, I know sales would increase world wide.

As for RENA, it sure would be interesting to know what their sales figures are.
With no dealerships in many states, I doubt that they are selling very many of their RE's. :(

Bullet Electra & AVL Models / Re: USB charger connected to headlight
« Last post by Arizoni on August 22, 2017, 06:21:20 pm »
IMO, the problem with connecting a charger to the headlight wires (orange/blue/green) is only the blue & orange (high beam and ground) or the green & orange (low beam and ground) will be turned on at any one time.
Say the charger was connected to the blue & orange wires.  It would only work when the headlight was in the High beam position.

Most RE's also have a gray wire close to the headlight.
This gray wire is often unconnected because it is the power wire for the small "parking" bulb that is inside some headlight shells.  This is never used with a sealed beam headlight.

Any how, the gray wire always has power if the light switch is in the Parking or Headlight on position.  It is turned off only if the light switch on the handlebars is in the OFF position AND the switch bypass wire was removed from the headlight casquette.

If your charger is the type made for plugging into a cigarette lighter or hooking up directly to a 12 volt wire in a car, you do NOT want AC power going to it.

If you try hooking up a USB wire directly to the motorcycle you will fry any USB device you might have plugged into it.  (USB power is 5 volts DC.  12-14 volts AC or DC that might be lurking on your motorcycle is way too much.)

Anyway, that's my opinion for the moment. :)

If  I lived in India I would be excited for R.E.M.
However , from my point of view  I have no expectations for RENA since all I've seen is a"Dog & Pony show" .
My next new motorcycle will be a Moto Guzzi or  1970s single.

Looks like the GT may soon be phased out or replaced with the twin maybe. If the twin saves the day?

Atleast they are confident about their technological skills acc. to the above article.  :) ...well their sales growth in India don't leave much doubt on it.

I was in the six item express lane at the store quietly fuming.
Completely ignoring the sign, the woman ahead of me had slipped into the check-out line pushing a cart piled high with groceries. Imagine my delight when the cashier beckoned the woman to come forward looked into the cart and asked sweetly, "So which six items would you like to buy?" (Wouldn't it be great if that happened more often?)

Because they had no reservations at a busy restaurant, my elderly neighbor and his wife were told there would be a 45 minute wait for a table. Young man, we're both 90 years old," the husband said. "We may not have 45 minutes."They were seated immediately.

All eyes were on the radiant bride as her father escorted her down the aisle. They reached the altar and the waiting groom. The bride kissed her father and placed something in his hand. The guests in the front pews responded with ripples of laughter. Even the priest smiled broadly. As her father gave her away in marriage, the bride gave him back his credit card.

Three friends from the local congregation were asked, "When you're in your casket, and friends and congregation members are mourning over you, what would you like them to say?" Artie said, "I would like them to say I was a wonderful husband, a fine spiritual leader, and a great family man."
Eugene commented, "I would like them to say I was a Wonderful teacher and servant of God who made a huge difference in people's lives."
Al said, "I'd like them to say, 'Look, he's moving!'"

Smith climbs to the top of Mt. Sinai to get close enough to talk to God. Looking up, he asks the Lord. "God, what does a million years mean to you?" The Lord replies, "A minute." Smith asks, "And what does a million dollars mean to you?" The Lord replies, "A penny." Smith asks, "Can I have a penny?" The Lord replies, "In a minute."

John was on his deathbed and gasped pitifully, "Give me one last request, dear," he said. "Of course, John," his wife said softly. "Six months after I die," John said, "I want you to marry Bob." "But I thought you hated Bob," she said.. With his last breath John said, "I do!"

A man goes to see the Rabbi. "Rabbi, something terrible is happening and I have to talk to you about it." The Rabbi asked, "What's wrong?" The man replied, "My wife is going to poison me." The Rabbi, very surprised by this, asks, "How can that be?" The man then pleads, "I'm telling you, I'm certain she's going to poison me.What should I do?" The Rabbi then offers, "Tell you what. Let me talk to her, I'll see what I can find out and I'll let you know." A week later the Rabbi calls the man. He says, "I spoke to your wife on the phone for three hours. You want my advice?" The man said, "Yes" and the Rabbi replied, "Take the poison."

Beat me too it malky!

I was going to mention the V-Strom 250. I think it'll be cheaper than the Versys with the full luggage pack. Or at least equal to the Versys base model.

I really like the look of it. Should be quite comfortable at 60 and not too revvy. I don't think my bank balance is as keen as me though lol.
