Ethanol is in there for a reason, think of those poor lobbyists.. the farmers.. the CHILDREN dammit!

You should be asking for more ethanol in our gas, not less.

The pressure on the EPA? I have to laugh. He meant to say the pressure the EPA is putting on the oil companies. This is not good. Will the government at least offer a tax deduction for my repairs when the time comes? Fuck no they won't. Assholes.

Buzz had a couple of Ducati plastic gas tanks fail on hit GT 1000 IIRC. I've not had any alcohol related issues with any of my bikes, but that may be because I ride year around. It seems like ,osteoporosis problems come from storing the bike (aside from plastic tanks of course).

I know a few boaters who say Star Tron fuel treatment is very effective. They're dealing with long fuel storage times and lots of moisture.

Thanks for the tip. I hadn't been able to find a good remedy so I will give Star Tron a try. No problems so far but unlike California I am unable to ride about 3 months out of the year in Texas.

He just blindly spits out that it's good for the evironment and "renewable."

Even a Sierra Clubbing leftist doesn't believe that shit anymore.

I remember when CW took no prisoners. Now it's just the Motor Trend of the motorcycle world. An industry mouthpiece just like MO and every other Verticalscope owned site.

That's what happens when the competition is all bought and paid for as well. Back in the old days they had Cycle and Cycle Guide, along with the original Motorcyclist. Now Cycle and Cycle Guide are long gone and Motorcyclist is basically the editors and testers jacking each other off and talking about how cool they are.

Rider is or was halfway interesting but the only thing I read now is Classic Bike from the UK. The rest seem to be pretty much a waste of time.

You could make your headlights much more effective by putting in HIDs. I did this to my Tiger and the difference is huge. I can actually see the road. You can get a good kit from ddmtuning for $22.50. I can't recommend HID lights for the tiger enough. You really should do it. I added a couple of LED driving lights too, but just the HID headlight is enough. The stock lights on the Tiger are terrible as I'm sure you figured out.

You don't have a heat problem? I've thought about doing the HID thing in my Sprint, but I've heard the plastic can't handle hotter bulbs.
