I wasn't pickin on ya...just trying to comment on the fact that most 929/954's look the same (no matter the mods) unless there is some custom paint work involved.immortal : Well, I have no stickers on my bike so that should make it stand out a little more. The corbin seat and seat cowl make it have a little more nonstock look. The matris m4 damper is pretty rare too. It also has Phillips H7 Vision Plus bulbs, which are really easy to spot from stock. They are WAY brighter and much whiter. It has yellow dealertags from Hayard of Honda / Suzuki. No rear blinkers, I stripped them of. Its just the plate attatched to the undertail.
I understand exactly how he feels.fumbducker : Just curious, your bike gets jacked and you immediately put all your near new gear for sale, what gives? Best of luck to you.
Jafo...You expect me to do the same? Hope you don't feel too let down if I don't. I don't ride in the rain if at all possible...My 'blade is a bike, not a jetski. As far as riding year 'round, you have some snow riding tips?jafo : Also have a comment for fumducker,I ride in the rain,commute year around and I expect you to do the same,of coure I do live in cali.Let me know,I can give some helpful hints for rain rides,most of which I learned the dumb way.I work harder not smarter.
My first 929 was recovered 3 months after theft. I had already gotten my insurance check and bought another 929. The thieves didn't part it out on e-bay like I thought they would. Just spray painted the entire thing including the frame and engine. Chiseled off every VIN except the most obvious one on the side of the frame. They crashed it a few times and did a bunch of burn outs to wear the rear down to the cords and then dumped it in a court some where. I didn't even go look at it.....mmeacham : Bummer!
I would be even more depressed than I already am if mine was stolen.
Does any one know what the recovery rate is on our type of bike. I have seen lots stolen but none recovered.
