1. Sad News:
We are sad to report that one of our valued members died on April 10th when he was hit
by a drunk 22 year old young man that was drag racing with another 22 year old young man.
Jim "TattooJim" Cunningham had a Suzuki Intruder 1500 LC that he had fondly named "The Flaming Lemon".
He had just gotten his bike back from the painters where he had gotten a really unique custom paint job.
He was understandably very proud of his bike. Jim was out one night riding his Intruder when one of the
above mentioned drivers crossed into oncoming traffic to pass the other driver and hit Jim head on. Jim
died 6 hours later in the emergency room. He will be sorely missed and out hearts and condolences go out
to his friends and family.

2. Tech Tip: Cleaning a windshield:
Presented by the folks at CoolWindshields
The most common mistake people make is trying to scrub bugs off the
windshield. When a bug dies on your shield it sometimes leaves a sticky
residue which acts like a dirt magnet. You don't want to rub that dirt
in, as it can scratch the surface of the shield. Instead, before you
wash your bike, lay a wet towel on the Windvest and let it sit while you
wash the rest of the bike. After the wet towel has had a chance to
loosen the bug guts off the shield, remove the towel and hose the bugs
off rather than rubbing them off. If any chunks remain, gently remove
them with a soft terrycloth towel, turning frequently. If soap is
needed, we recommend ordinary dish soap. It's inexpensive, and everyone,
well, almost everyone, has it. While chemical products such as Windex
and RainX are safe to use, we do not recommend them. They are costly and
won't help. In fact, RainX will cause the rain to slide up the Windvest
and over the top rather than the sides, putting more wetness in your
face. Using products like Windex does not remove the grit first, and
will probably end up scratching the shield. If you should scratch the
shield, all isn't lost. There are plastic polishing products available
in your local auto parts store, or through us. Both Novus (#2) and
Meguire's (#10) are excellent at removing fine scratches. Heavy
scratches may require buffing, which can be done at your local plastic
shop. (Look under "Plastics - Fabricators" in your yellow pages.) If you
have any further questions, please feel free to call our 24 HR tech
support line at 408-209-6337.
Now get out there and RIDE!
