This is my second Diavel. I had a 2013 and loved it. Very reliable, fast and pretty comfortable once I switched the OEM seat for the touring seat. I really wasnít thinking of trading but the new Diavel had a few upgrades I wished the original one had like quick shift, cruise control and multi stage ABS intervention. I donít really need wheelie control but it has that too. The ergos are a little more stretched compared to the original but fits me fine and the seating is much more comfortable.

I don't think there's any official etiquette, per se, it's just a pattern I've noticed.

I almost sold my Diavel to someone on the forum and was hoping to sell to a fellow enthusiast and share a good deal. They went with a different bike so I ended up trading in for a bit more than I was going to sell for.

This may be the only time I defend journalists but it's a fairly common practice to call the President, Mr. XXXXXXX rather than President XXXXXXXX. I'm almost certain the WSJ calls him President Trump on the first calling then the rest of the article will have him listed as Mr. Trump.
I figure the media wanted to replicate Rome and rebrand the postion as Trump like the Roman did with Ceaser.

I will repeat myself: single polls are useless.

Or can we start using Rasmussen polls from now on? I don't think so.

My point is that you should always look at poll aggregates. That way you're a lot less likely to fall into a 2016 trap.

And I've said that updates will be sent on this poll from time to time and intend to do so. 2016 had a lot of action in the last two to three weeks of the election including Comey and Russia.
Hopefully that doesn't happen again.

If you believe the polls were wrong in 2016 because of what happened in the couple of weeks before the election you're goint to have a bad time again in 2020.
