Sorry to hear about your friend Irene.  I hope she has the strength to make it through all of this and not give up on living life to the fullest.  Man that will be hard!  There is a guy in town that has been riding for years with one arm.  I've never asked just exactly how he does it, but missing an arm hasn't kept him from doing the things he loves like riding bikes and playing softball.  We're all pulling for her! 

A couple of years ago, I was returning home from Louisville, KY after a trip there to take mom to the dr.  I was on the Sherman Minton bridge, from Louisville to New Albany, IN.  I was in the far right lane so that I could exit into New Albany and get on highway 62, when some woman in a huge SUV decided she wanted my lane.  Of course she was on her phone and driving distracted.  I was lucky enough for her to realize that she was about to run me into the right side of the bridge.  Scared the crap out of me.  Cagers on the interstate scare me with their lack of attention.  I ride the interstate very little for this reason, besides the fact that interstates are only good for making it from point a to point b quickly.  If I do get on the interstate, I do my best to stay as far away from cars and trucks as possible.  A speeding ticket may be in my future because of my method to avoid being around cars and trucks.  Two lane roads are where it's at for me.

I really hope she recovers both mentally and physically!

Mr T,

Nothing wrong with being frugal lol. I recently installed those 20 bullet lights from ADVmonster and so far so good. The connections on the old matched up with the new and appear to be just as bright. I'll keep everyone advised. Take care and God Bless.

Welcome home Amigo. Being away from your true home is rough. BTDT when we moved out of state for a few years. When the chance to come back home to Texas came along we jumped on it.

On the way down, TimR and I rode together.  Good road conditions and no traffic on our route.

TimR exited from eastern Oregon curve

and he can barely be seen on this road

Sorry to hear Tin.

Happy you took the time to post.

I shredded my Alpinestars/Olympia gear and immediately replaced it with Motoport.

Ankles have screws and plates in the left and a total ankle on the right. I switched over to Forma Adventures to protect them from any future damage. Waterproof and stable. Walk like a tennis shoe.

I did the Wolo air horn too.  Mine didn't stand the test of time, so I went back to the 'piezo' style
Dual horns.  The reliability outweighed the tone of the horn. 

Admittedely, my Wolo wasn't very well protected from the elements, and it saw quite a few
heavy Floriduh rains....  ymmv.
Greetings and thanks for including me into the group.

I currently live in Dallas, TX but am I'm interested in relocating to the Charlotte area.
I've done some research on the area from Google searches but would like input from those of you who live in and around Charlotte.

Geographically, the Gastonia area west of CLT looks like a great place to live as homes are affordable and its close to Smokys and other great roads.  Unfortunately, I've read that crime is a problem and Gastonia has been on a list of being one of the worst cities.
I would like to know how much of that is true, any locals care to shed some light?
If not Gastonia, is there another recommended area?

I don't have a firm time-table as to when I'm going to relocate but I am going to be there Labor Day weekend to scope out the landscape.
I would love to hear from some of you folks out there who live near the Charlotte area.

I don't have experience with a Stebel, but I did have a Wolo Bad Boy on my C10. It's very similar to the Stebel, and I think the sound and volume are close as well.
I separated the two parts (trumpets and compressor). Mounted compressor to fairing brace on right side, sort of below the clock, and the trumpets under the lower triple tree. Left the OW horns in place, and functioning. It was LOUD! and attention getting. Being a jerk, I blew them close to a friend and to this day I'm thankful he didn't draw on me and pull the trigger  :truce:
Leaving the OE horns in place allowed me to give a gentle meep from the OE horns if I held the button for just a fraction of a second, but really cleaned out ear canals if I held the button long enough to spin up the compressor.
I believe Stebel now makes a model that already comes with the compressor separated from the trumpets, for more flexible mounting.
Go for it!   :great:
