Thank goodness! Another item to visit Canada and stock up on...

I will probably get nuked for this opinion, but I am glad that they have closed their doors for this reason. I am sick and tired of unions trying to squeeze every last little dollar out of employers and I don't know why workers support them.

The union crime bosses said "go on strike" and their sheeples did. 18,500 jobs lost due to the arrogance and greed of a union syndicate. I doubt that it will do any good, but I am glad to see them getting what they deserve.

Agreed. It's a shame that so many will lose their jobs like this.

I could care less about the Twinkies but no more Ding Dongs? Say it ain't so.

BTW jstarktt what tune do you have in your RS?
I am using: RS_ST_tune_by_Wayne_Macdonald.hex

I have tried: TIM_NELS_TUNE.hex and: Sprint_RS_'00._Tune_10078_modified.hex

Haven't noticed a significant performance change between them, but I seem to get the best touring mileage with the one I am using.
I'm gonna dig a little deeper into my bike this winter. It came from CA and has the extra emission stuff. I think I have a CAT, and will eliminate it if that is the case. I love my bike and it goes plenty good, but I think there is more there to be had.

Worth the ride to Canada I guess. Dress warmly.

To hell with all your Twinkies and Ding-Dongs!

What about HO-HOs?
