A faggott used to mean a bundle of brush or sticks. Not particularly edible.

That's OK, next time I'll be explaining why real gravy is brown and not white in colour, and what you call biscuits are really scones!

Around these parts gravy is red, made with tomatoes and best served with pasta/// err, spaghetti Smile

Now regarding Lalee's anxiety about this thread direction; it might help if you don't think of this as a misdirection, but think of it instead as "the road less travelled" or keep in mind Yogi Berra's "When you come to a fork in the road take it".

As were talking about being off course, I've been known to set a destination on my sat nav, and at each junction take the opposite road to the one suggested.

I've found some interesting new roads as a result.

A Firkin is nothing to do with roads, but is the British measure of excess. It is equivalent to 9 gallons (these are larger than US gallons) and is always used in multiple s of two, e.g. two firkin heavy, two firkin big e.t.c. A fork in is a divide in a road.

Laughing at Berra for the, "if you come to a fork in the road, take it" actually made sense as a joke when you know he was telling a friend how to get to his house. There was a fork in the road approaching the Berra residence where the road went around both ways around a block and either leg of the fork would get to Berra's place.

Gravy is brown not white or red. The red stuff made from tomato is sauce! Biscuits are usually flattened, ie cookies. The US biscuits are actually buns, like a lot of things Razz  they just dont know Laughing
As a kid growin up the word firkin was commonly used ie- "stop firkin around"! Being from the east coast a lot of british/english terms and sayings drifted across the pond. I even know what a bonnet is! Bonfire night was/is celebrated etc.

The Canadians have got it right with their gravy using the proper brown stuff, they don't ladle what looks like the contents of a bill posters bucket with a few sausage specks in it over their poutine.

Bonnet has a couple of meanings over here, it usually refers to what's called the hood of a car over the Pond, or for a type of headwear. As women don't usually wear sun bonnets or such anymore, a bonnet is the traditional hat worn by Scottish infantry soldiers. The Tam O’Shanter, Glengarry, or the ceremonial feathered bonnets worn by Pipe Bands.

Let's clear up this gravy/sauce business.

Gravy is based on the juices given off by meat/poultry/game (but NOT fish) during the cooking process. Gravy may have additives, like wine or stock, or thickening/flavouring agents.

Sauce is made from things other than meat juice; ie tomatoes, cream, milk, etc. Any liquid from fish can also made into a sauce.

Neither is good for cleaning a windshield!

In the US a bit of milk may be added to meat gravy, also flour may be used as a thickening agent. Sausage, or Country gravy could be called a sauce, it fits the definition but in most of the US it will definitely be called gravy. Fried potatoes sliced transversely to the potato are called chips here for the most part unless you order fish and chips. In that case the chips are cut longitudinally and are what we normally call French fries. I suspect calling them chips in that case comes from the UK. In the US ketchup (catsup in some places) on the fries and tartar sauce on the chips is most common although some use vinegar in the UK manner.
Beyond all that and to stay on subject none of the above materials are good on windshields either OEM or aftermarket.

Thanks RichG for the instructions. Installed the Airflow in about 45 minutes, first time I've worked on my SWing (just bought it used a month ago). What a tremendous difference the windscreen makes!

And the Calendar Girls are going to need some bigger buns.

On topic though, thanks for the detailed information. I might even be able to install the AF myself. It's on my suspect list of farkles.

Roux is great for cleaning windshields! Either OEM or Aftermarket. Aftermarket is probably not as good tho because it does have a bit of acid in it. It's great for cleaning bugs off tho but wipe it off quickly...

Or not! :lol!:

Wasn't there a Roux McClanahan or someone like that who was on the Golden Girls?

Maybe not.

OK. I'm done and moving on to another thread to cause confusion.

There is a man on the Burgman forum by the name Kiwi Dave that sells Givi products, he has Givi ship direct ship to you so you don't pay shipping.
His website is for Burgmans, but if you email him telling him what you want and he will email you back with a price and an invoice with a link to place to order it if you want. I received my order in two or three days.
He rides a scooter himself and I like to help the little guy who is a brother rider if I can.

Meldrew I was going to wright "he rides himself" instead of "he rides a scooter himself" but I thought someone might interpret it wrong. I didn't even notice "Brother rider". I didn't mean to infer anything about his habits, which I know nothing about.  Neutral

Fags=Cigarettes, I think.
Anyway I just installed my new adjustable GIVI AF214. Thanks for the detailed instructions. I lost a grommet-I'm not sure it was ever there. The Honda dealership must've seen me coming. He had packs of 6 of them, screws and all, in 3 different colors. He didn't even have to go in the back - they were right there on the shelf. I don't think they were the exact same grommets - they didn't have a slight bow in the center like the original, but i think the one I used will be OK.
About that GIVI supplied bracket - I know one user said he didn't use it and I bet that's OK. I did install it. I think that's a Star T30 bit to get the Honda bolt out and a T25 to get the Givi bolt in. I dropped the shoulder washer but found it quickly. That was fortunate, because that's a specialty washer - I don't know how much trouble it would be to find a replacement. At first it looked like the screws weren't going to line up in the bracket but once everything was in place they lined up fine.
Noticeable improvement at 60ish mph.
It looks important to keep an eye on, and keep sufficiently tightened, the 10mml bolts where the adjustable piece slides into the bottom windshield. And it looks important to push down thoroughly to completely close the clamp. You don't want that top piece flying off.
