Funny. I thought the same thing. I'm 6'1" and I had a sportster 30 years ago. Sold it after 1 year because it was too small. Got to say it's a fun bike to ride tho.

Not me. I never liked convertibles. Any of them. Obviously just a personal taste thing. To me, no roof just kills the lines of the car. Especially the XK.

My guy said they would not guarantee the adhesion to the original material. True or not, I didn't want to chance it to save $100 or so and maybe have to go back in a year or 2. Plus, the replacement...

But it's heavily processed before transmission (compression/limiting). Higher rate mp3s sound better.


You got that right. Sometimes the local station will play some worthwhile stuff but it's...

Is it a Jaguar branded battery? Is there a date sticker on it? I see your concern but no use replacing it if it a year or so old.
