Great idea B-dub, thanks!
Lizrdbrth did some pretty awesome rides, like the 1,700 mile Route 66 ride with Purple, and the 1,000 mile Iron Butt ride with Ronnydog, but where he spent a lot of his time on this site was on the Technical and Performance forums sharing his insight, knowledge, and wisdom to help others solve their TW problems.
To honor Russ and keep his impressive amount of knowledge easily accessible on this forum I would like to compile a list of tech tips that he so willingly shared. I know there is more, so please feel free to add to the list.
Every time I read a post from Russ, it's like he is still here, and that's a good thing.

My handle is B-dub, I ride a T-dub, and drive a V-dub.
Suggestion? Sticky this page and/or compile it into an ebook and charge a minimal amount for the download. Proceeds go to his family and/or the Russ memorial ride or something. I would buy it.
Great! I like it!
This compilation is like Christmas all over again, what a tribute to Lizrdbrth!
There are some great ideas here!
