    Choosing a Gen II Rifle windshield size (vs Gen I)

    I’ve had a Rifle +8 tall +4 wide since 2009. It’s a great barn door to ride behind. I get no direct wind noise on my helmet, except for stiff cross winds. I run it about 30% up, which tips it back a bit from a shorter one placed up above mid stroke. I’m 6’4” with a 40” inseam, and look just...

    Fixing 41 year old Honda CBX mirrors....

    Don, WTF is this ??!? That’s like looking down deep in the bell of an old Victrolla and finding the sound diaphragm was remade with a section of soda can, and seeing the CocaCola logo staring back at you. 😬 All kidding aside, nice job keeping that beautiful machine OEM looking, and on the...

    YFO 2023 - Gauging interest

    Tyler Manchester KOA comes to mind. As you well know, they’re right friendly people. Some of us could bring our camping gear, and others could “Rough It” in one of those KOA Kabins – you know, the ones with the Komfy beds, and full bathrooms with showers. I hear they still have the nightly...

    It Was Just One Little Wrong Turn...

    Just a thought… When you came out of the hills into Watsonville, did you stop at Gizdich Ranch and pick up a pie for your son? 😁

    It Was Just One Little Wrong Turn...

    So, let me get this straight… You came westbound on Hecker pass road (152), and turned right on Pole Line Road, and took it to Mt. Madonna Road, then made another right turn and followed Mt. Madonna Road away from Watsonville? Sounds like my kind of goaty road 😁. Thanks for pointing it out to...

    SH__37 issue for the YCCS bikes

    Louis, My pipe stand consists of three units, all based on 1 1/4 diameter iron water pipe, threaded together: One upright… 2 pipes, 5 feet long 2 elbows, 90 degrees 1 crosspiece pipe, 3 feet long Two feet… 4 pipes, 18 inches long 4 pipe caps 2 pipe tees...

    SH__37 issue for the YCCS bikes

    Louis That water pipe frame stand used all by itself can get you in trouble. It will take the weight of the bike all right, but the bike will very tippy, and prone to fall over. Look at my picture again, and note that the front wheel is firmly secured in a CONDOR wheel chock. This is the only...

    New mileage record on a single tank of gas

    Wait a minute… Haulin Ashe? Skyway? It sucked me in; must have been 7 or 8 responses before I read the date – 2007. 😳 It was fun seeing the posts and avatars of members long gone. 🙂

    Reuben Run 10 shirts and food

    Just reserved my campsite, and looking forward to the gathering. I'd like cow, Prime Cow. I'll pay you when I see you. Ray, thanks for hosting this event; I've been wanting to attend for the past 10 years! Brodie 🐮 p.s.     Do you know any place nearby that serves up a half way decent...

    For folks headed to or from Sturgis

    I had a fantistic catfish dinner at Pickle's Place, many years ago, when staying at the KOA right down the street. Next time I'm in the neighborhood I'm definaetly going to visit them! Brodie 😋

    Going to the Dark Side

    ^^^^ Agreed.  Just like I said over on FaceBook, 31 psi cold - let the tire flex, it will handle much better. I’ve run as low as 28 before my FOBO complained.  The issue I see with the majority in that FaceBook group is higher pressures, stiff tires, and flexible framed V-twins. Your Advanced...

    Name that FJR

    Naming the vehicles is fun and all; but be sure to sex them right. The FJR is a masculine machine – shaft drive.  JSNS Brodie 😁

    Who let the smoke out? KrZy8

    Don, How’s the ignition switch holding up? Is it a 5 wire recall switch, or the original 4 wire design? It should still be good because it only has the milliamp load from the relay; though I am surprised about the wire jacketing (12GA GXL wire SAE J1128 cross link 125C) shrinking back from the...

    Shorai Li battery - does it change charging rates?

    I tried that several times, at 6:15 in the morning, for both SHORAI batteries over the 3 years I ran them. I even wrapped the second one with a pair of aftermarket grip heaters running them for several minutes as well. It didn’t work. After sitting out overnight in 40 degree weather, in San Jose...
