            Yep and that’s even how they were described back in the day - agricultural. Which was weird because BMW cars were at the cutting edge of technology but before they got off their arse with the K series beemers were years behind in their technology

            • Missing original mirrors, Missing belly pan, incorrect coloured cheap Chinese plastics, shitty looking exhaust (but that's Brock's business model), stickers on the frame at the exact point where the handle bars would leave dents after a crash... Run, don't walk away as there are far better examples at that price;

              • Anyone who writes a description and calls it a “Steering Dampener” instead of the correct “damper” should have their bike license torn up and be forced to attend a 4th grade phonics course. The last thing I want is wetter steering.

                        • Dampen, damper, dampener

                          Damper is only a noun. It refers to (1) something that deadens, restrains, or depresses, (2) an adjustable plate for controlling a draft, and (3) one that deadens vibrations.1 Damper‘s corresponding verb is dampen, which means to deaden, restrain, or depress. Of course, dampen also means to make slightly wet.2

                          A dampener is someone or something that dampens.3 So damper and dampener can both refer to one that deadens sound vibrations. But damper does not work for something that makes something slightly wet.
                          From https://grammarist.com/usage/dampen-damper-dampener/ - they're saying either is correct, and refer to OED.

                            One is correct. The other makes me want to punch a sack of kittens to death.
