    Please tell where you purchased that reusable air filter and the part number if you know it. Many thanks, and great job on the polishing!

    Purchased it from my local Iron Pony store. It took a couple of days for them to get it in. Not sure of the part number. I would call but they're currently shut down here in Ohio until around May 1st as of now, but who knows since its day to day with this coronavirus.

    No check for me! Hope and prays that the money goes to those that REALLY need it. The wife and I currently still have jobs with a nice emergency fund saved to get us through. Many households have both parents unemployed because of covid-19 and have MAJOR life decisions to make when it comes to their next meal, feeding the kids, bills, rent, mortgage, etc. I'm blessed and will continually pray for all those affected, which is pretty much everyone, but some are a lot more worse off than others. Be blessed.

    Nice! I really like the changes they did to update the front end and interior, especially the automatic! I'll keep mine and admire this one I guess until I go in for service and it tempts me to sit down and run some numbers....

    My SS is a daily driver, so really haven't experienced a battery drain issue. I did however get to work one day and forgot to turn off my heated gloves and 8 hours later she was dead, dead!! Borrowed some jumper cables from my buddy and moved the seat forward and hooked the cables to the jump post and it still didn't start!! Had to remove the panel to get it jumped. Apparently the cables are hooked up correctly. Something I still have to look into why because I made sure everything had a solid connection when I installed the posts myself.

    Contact Mitch @ RevDynamics. He walked me through and made some great recommendations while working with me and helping me decide which wheel would be perfect for my set up and desired look. I thought the wheels were just lying around in a warehouse someplace, but he told me my wheels had to be made and cut for the particular offset, etc. I love them and was thinking about getting a 345 wide rear wheel cut to give it a more custom look in the rear.

    Pull the cup holders out and you may get a little warm air in the cockpit it does work but I have never tried it at that lower temperature. I do it between 45 and 55 degrees. I even have the PVC elbows to insert in the cup holders so the warm air will blow a little across me and the passenger.

    I'll have to give that a try. With my base layer gear and riding gear, not sure that I would even feel the warm air and at such a low temp..... it may be a cold breeze coming in through the cup holders :D

    Just looked at her in passing each morning before leaving for work because my wife seems to think my cold is due to riding the SS to work everyday in the teens during the morning hours here in Ohio. I totally disagree because I dress for it and with all my gear, the ONLY think cold on my 35 min commute is my finger tips when I get to work (My heated gloves don't get hot enough to prevent this from happening). I don't want to start any trouble so I decided to give it 5 days to see if my cold improved. Tomorrow is day 5 and I'm pulling the SS back out with sunny skies and 45 degrees in the forecast for the high, perfect riding weather!! The tall windshield does WONDERS!! You don't feel any drafts or air flow with the tall shield and full face helmet on. During the warmer months on long trips, I mount the ipad mini to the dash and angle it towards my wife passenger seat and turn the volume on 5 from the factory unit and you can hear EVERYTHING clear as day going 75 mph down the highway with the roof on or off.

    Yeah, you have to be ready to jump on it and put some money down to reserve it until you can take a harder look at it in person if possible. I bought mine from a dealership in Indiana.....I live in Ohio and it was a 3 hr drive to check it out. My back-up plan was that they had several other SS in my price range, so I knew I was planning on getting smthg. The one I went to look at had some minor damage that I didn't like, so I switched to plan B and put some money down to hold it. I came back 3 weeks later to pick it up. I was going to use uship, but then decided that it would be more fun to drive it back and get used to it on a 3 hr drive on a nice sunny 70 degree day in April. Hope you find the one you need! Happy hunting!

    Who needs a detail spray when you have a matte finish! It wasn't my ideal choice to get the GT with the matte paint, but I had to get it for the reduced price and best band for my buck. Chemical Guys sells TONS of products (almost too much) that assist in you taking care of your ride. They have a matte detail spray that can be used on just about anything from wheels, dash board to clear windshields. I typically just grab it off amazon for about $10. I also use a lot of Meguair's spray wax and detail spray on my other toys! I only use Meguiar's products, except they don't make a matte finish detail spray.


    I was half tempted one day to take a buffer to the matte paint and make it shine and then I realized how much work that would be for the entire vehicle and decided not to try it. The guy at the auto body paint shop told me that matte paint can be buffed to get a polished look shine. Not too sure on if that's true or not.
