Repairing the damage

after a few weeks of taking it easy, I was tired of seeing my beat down bike in the garage.
I cant tell you how sad it looked, which in turn didn't make me feel any better.
So once I could turn a wrench things started moving along.
First order of business was a SE wheel

Next was the Konfict Suspension service. Alex did a great job with revalving both front and rear and also got me the springs Ill need to do this again.
I also installed a new Carbon Fiber windscreen

Fresh install of my very trick Kevlar tank guards.and new paint and branding.
I struggled with what to do about the paint and logos.. Having your bike tagged isn't always a good thing

Almost done, good enough for a short street ride tomorrow
I did a lot of bending with Crowbars and a portapower to get the sub frame, headstay mount and lower tank brackets back in shape..
Looks great now, but something tells me it wont take long.

Great video!!! I can see you dont like the beaten path lol. Once the funds come in I'm ordering my SE light from you. I love supporting local people who love what they do. Keep it up.

Konflict windscreen

Like the looks of the Konflict windscreen.

Now the real question - how does it work?

Konlict is the Suspension tuner. Cyclops makes the CF windscreen. It works great for me, Also working on a cut down version for more aggressive riding.

There are days when I am a moron - sorry about that. I knew I had seen write ups on it by you - just forgot it was you.

So how does it work at highway speed - 55 mph and higher? That is when I was getting buffeted by the stock screen before I cut it down - a lot. Now my head and shoulders are in clear air - which also helps when going slow.
How tall are you as that seems to be a major factor as well?
Any idea when these screens will be released to the public?
Thanks,
Bill

I find it works better at 60 than 55 mph.. I'm 6ft.. Is it perfect? No.. I do feel it is quite a bit better than stock.
.I like the idea of a cut down, but do not want to get blasted all day.
Yesterday I road about 200 miles and came home relatively refreshed after riding the entire day with my modular helmet in the up position.
I mostly made the pattern and mold for my own use however,
There have been a few sold, we might get some reviews once guys get a chance to use them.
pm for availability.

There is an event that tries to emulate a one day ride like the Paris Dakar.

It starts in Paris Ontario Canada and ends up in Dacre Ontario. Around a 750km day and there are teams looking for some riders. A few are on the big Katooms. I think it is in June or July. An annual event.

Check in the Canadian Regional forum section and the thread is Dacre Challenge.

Keep me posted. I too am curious.

Big Bunny Hare and Hound '69

Is it Darryl?

I rode the Big Bunny H&H back in 1969 on my new 360 Maico X4A and some guy named Adams, maybe Glen (the class C guy) kept rubbing elbows and giving me a little roost every time I let (ha) I mean every time he passed me. He was on Sportster and as I remember he got on the box that day. I have thought of that day often as it was the only time I saw a 500 pound bike fly and the only H&H I ever rode in Wasington. Your video brought the happy memories flooding back and I almost thought I was there. Thank the modern camera, the modern adventurers and You. I rode H&Hs on big pushrod twins (and some other stuff) for several Calif. winters and never dreamed that years later someone would build such a bike as the 9X0 or that anyone would ride it if they did. Your ride and the record of it really made my day!!! I'll view it again.......and again.
thanks again
Sterling

This race was the Desert 100 (mattawa) I think it was the 42nd or 43rd year running? The land looks about the same as back when it all started. This event has moved 3 times threwout the years, each area has had its own characteristics. The newest being my favorite, less loose rocks and some decent challages threwout the course
.I always marveled at the guys on the big twins when I was a kid.
all this technology stuff isn't such a bad thing.. Thanks for the complements..

Mattawa

Yes, Was the "Mattawa 100" and Washington's "best" back then and as I recall it had 1,200 entrants. The T-shirt was the best I ever got with a "Big Bunny" rabbit bouncing off the bike seat. And I do remember a field of some rather large bolders but other than the rocks it looks just about as I remember. Thanks again for the video.
