Hi Karen,

Regarding where to hang a helmet, I have BarEnder locks on my PC and really like
them: . They're easy to access, easy to use, secure,
and don't require any permanent modifications such as drilling holes.

Be seeing you,

Hello Tupperware riders! <vbg> I FINALLY am the OFFICIAL owner of a 1995 PC. After the PO delivered it from El Paso to Roswell, he THEN told me he never registered it when he bought it. :-( So, it took me two weeks of fighting w

    Congrads on being official and OFFICIAL :-) The TGPCHPCMY2KMR+10 is coming up in September and WORMHOLE is happening in a couple of weeks although both of those rides are in California/Oregon/Washington. Check for the T

    motorcyclemama, welcome to your new ride.

    welcome x 3. We can tell you are excited about this bike, it was a great first post.. You mentioned a way to attach a helmet. I too am looking at different options. While I have not finished my search, I am seriously considering the

    Hi Karen and welcome. I like the method of locking the helmet to the seat grab bars with a cable lock as is shown in the Owner's Manual. I haven't tried it yet though - still waiting to get Tsunami back on the road but I'm getting there. Lots

    KAB, Re: Locking a helmet. You might want to get a Flexweave cable. A 6 foot long, 3/16 inch diameter cable and a small padlock will let you lock your helmet to a seat grab rail and then set it on the ground in the shade. It can al

    I followed the advice of others and put washers on the bottom of the shelter (the fake tank). I used Gorilla Glue to hold 8 large washers in place. It also has a strap that secures it. I was able to go through the gas tank cover with that

      I'd be careful about that 'modified car filter' - a previous owner ruined my engine with one that didn't fit well. --- In

        I looked for the filter today to modify. Avance Auto and Wal-Mart didn't carry it. I'll just wait till the new one comes in. Today I'm replacing the anti-freeze with Engine Ice in anticipation of a ride south the end of this month. Phil Wh

          Phil, Make sure the anti-freeze you use is silicate and phosphate free or you can damage your water pump seal. Fred --- In

      Others have suggested various forms of cables and locks for securing gear. Here's are a couple of convenient devices that combine a combination lock with a retractable steel cable:

    Karen, Don't go drilling holes in the bike. You can get chrome posts that replace the pivot for the clutch and brake lever and allow you to slide the D-ring over and snap a small lock on the top. You will see them on many goldwings. I have on

    Welcome aboard, Karen! If you get questions now, try switching it off and coasting up in neutral to the local 7-11 or Rita's water ice outlet, everyone wants to know if it's electric! It's quiet enough at idle that people often don't know

    Here is the bar end lock I'm considering. I note there are lots of other good workable solutions too, I just didn't want to carry a cable. The post anchored to the cl

      Jerry, The lock stays on the post all the time. You just unlock it , slide it off, slide the D ring over the post and put the lock back on. When you take it off to remove the helmet you snap it back on after on the lower part of the post so y
