      Two things. The timing chain tensioner is something to consider. I was quoted $1,200 to do a pre-empt fix on my '09 Eos about a year-plus ago. If you find one you like, adding this to it may make...

      No proof. It could have been you hitting her car without proof if the paint transfer matches. Have it fixed if it bothers you. Send in a claim if you can't afford it or don't want to pay more than...

      I'll look at the pics when I get home (blocked at work), but I am curious as to it making it to Sarasota but not Key West. So, it will make a 16-hour trip, but not a 22-hour trip?

      I'm assuming the 4-cylinder engine is a 2.0T, right?

      I was fitted when I purchased the bike. I returned to the shop a month later just prior to my hip replacement, and several weeks after the surgery when I was cleared to resume activities like...

      I am not getting into "the VW mess" conversation. I have 30 years of VW ownership experience, and other extraneous experience as well. I'm not persuaded by those who are easily offended, and I have...

      My daughter's '13 S is a softer ride than my '14 R. Part of it is the suspension but I think more of it is her 17-inch wheels versus my 19-inch wheels. I wouldn't change just tires on the same...

      I believe the consensus is VW made the improvement at the factory mid-2012 model year, so you should be okay.

      How ironic. I have these tires (different size) on my Thing. I was drawn to this thread because I was curious for my TiggeR, too. I would need new wheels for this size, though, or see if they come...

      I will look into your suggestions. This is the bike I have. The eighth (last) slide under "features" shows the handle my bike has. It is more cushioned than what bikes of yesteryear had, and I do...

      Interesting. This is what I currently have for the front and rear. I was thinking about getting a second package deal. I haven't gone 90 minutes at full lumens yet, but I have no reason to believe...

      Riding Gloves

      As the weather has started to turn colder and my strength and endurance continues to improve post-op, I started thinking about gloves. As for dealing with the colder temps, I found a 2013 thread...

      Thanks again! I'm leaning towards putting two 800s or 850s on the handlebar. The front reflector (cat's eye I thought someone called it) will likely come off. We'll see how that goes before I add...

      Thanks for the replies. Mostly road riding, but back alleys and trails, too. Nothing more offroad than that. Some roads are very well lit. The balance is quite the opposite.

      I can escape my world, improve myself, share my experiences with others, and/or be in splendid isolation.

      Night riding

      I'm not as experienced as most of the folks here. I have an Urban kit kit with 800 lumens on the forward light as well as a tail light.

      My question is: What do you knowledgeable folks think if I...

      I know it doesn't do you a damn bit of good, but I have had my eye on this for a while. I couldn't do anything because surgery prevented me from driving a clutch or traveling. That's over but I am...

      No offence, but since you have III and want a IV, wouldn't you be better off showcasing this request in the IV forum?

      Good luck, BTW. Your GTX looks very nice! :cool:
