    Hey, even yard camping in the RV can be fun. Particularly when one's mother in law shows up!

    Last time I topped off my RV I stopped filling at $90! Lucky you don't live in California!

    just need more seat time with a bike off road pavement, you'll get used to it, I think its harder going from street to dirt than dirt to street

    Don't think he's talking about dirt. We're both slow there, plus his bike is double as expensive as mine :rofl:

    Im a slow rider on road. Dont they always say, "ride your own ride"

    I felt the same when I first read the prices. A more expensive and hopefully more comfortable helmet will pay dividends in the end.

    +1 to the quad lock. Got it on the DRZ, now in the truck, and picked up their golf cart mount for when I run my blue tooth hearing protection on the mower or power washer. Still need to get another vibration dampener for the golf cart mount. Saw how much the power washer vibrated and felt it was going to fuck up my phones camera.

    I also have a dedicated nav phone now which makes life easier but I got a case for my main phone too.

    Nothing too exciting... maybe a little rust
    I know this was a topic a while back but what are your recommendations for ear plugs? I wasn't too worried about it while I was on the Duke 390 being as it sounded about like a lawn mower but this FZ-07 with the M4 slip-on is LOUD.

    Any cheap Mack’s pack from Walmart works for me, but ever since I bought my first non-budget helmet I find it’s quiet enough to not need them too often anymore, if that helps.

    I bought these on Amazon that I was not very happy with, felt like they muted far too much even though they were supposed to be road oriented with less muting.

    So i guess i'm in for answers as well

    Second for cheapo foamies from wally-world. And it's amazing how much helmet type makes a difference, especially the little neck roll piece at the bottom.

    I think you'd be better off buying some cheap foamies from Wally World. The ones i linked felt about the same as far as noise reduction as foam earplugs, and you'll get way more for your money with foams lol
