I don't know though... Now that I saw QaFred's '99 R1200 that makes me re-think a Beemer over and HD... That's a damn good looking machine.

Vibrations in the wheel...

I have a problem with my car. I was wondering if you all could help me. Between 100-105 mph I feel slight vibrations in the steering wheel. It works its way out after 105 and up. Thoughts? :dunno:

BRZ looks nice. Just doesn't get me all too excited. It still looks like a ricer. Guess I'll have to look into getting a bike. Harley's are fun, and pretty cheap.

Yep, it's just the driver's side leather I want to replace. How expensive are we talking and where is a good place to buy a kit?
