Right vs. Left

Dumb question, but I will ask anyway....when you speak of right side and or left side. From what perspective is this ? Looking at the bike or from being seated on the bike ?

I meant, sometimes I call the left side of the RC51, the chain side.

It's all good J Dog.....figured the air is too thin for ya sitting on them 22's with the floaters...;-)

What sparked this is I need to buy a headlight for the left side as one of the tabs is broken...but I didn't know how to figure which one to buy. Facing the bike it is the right one, seated it is the left...but now I know...

Ok, now you did it! First, although they may look like expensive 22's, they're really just factory 18's, and def no spinners>
Second, the air isn't all that thin cause: A) elevation is 35 feet where I live, B) I just lower my airbags if I start to feel a little whoozy

Umm....I got nothing. Nothing wrong with 18's...long as you keep em clean...Floaters are different than spinners J ....Spinners are very late 1990's early 2000's....Floaters are what is in now. What sets them apart are Floaters do not spin / move when the car is in motion...they self level themselves so you will always be able to see the design in the wheel no matter what. This idea was taken from / stolen from Rolls Royce as on the Rolls the center caps self level so you can always read the RR. So next time you are easing thru the mean streets of San Francisco sippin on your Pinot Grigio, you will be able to "up" your street cred by knowing floaters from spinners ...glad I could be of help....make it a great day !
