I may just be!

I should just concentrate on getting my (new to me) sv ready to rip and forget about what might be.

I like to be able to look down at the speedometer and have confidence it's giving me an accurate measurement. Motomummy has them for $70 shipped. It's an easy install, and it's programmable, so if you change tires or anything you can than later reprogram it to keep it correct.
SpeedoDRD installed and calibrated. I used 9.9% and it's close enough for me. Mega Thanks,,,,,,, BK

Dan,

Just curious. What's the verdict on the 180 rear? Any opinion formed yet?

peace,
Niles

Danimal, the setup with the aluminum supports going to the snapped my fender elimnator on one side


I have fixed it though -




Excited for a two up Appalachia Tour this June. Start the the top of the BRP, ride the entire thing this time, go to the Rally at Fontana. Ride 129 and Moonshine 28 again, and hopefully check out Cherohala this time. Then head back up to VA, via Knoxville, the cumberland gap and the new river gorge bridge. 5 days, 1350mi.

Only have a few short rides in on it thus far (about 150 miles) and I must say...me likey a lot.
Feels funny for a lack of a better word, how easily the bike transitions over to a steep lean angle. Not that it falls in, but the feedback is more linear as you go from upright to on the edge.
If you look at the profile of ANY 160 tire, they are far more "rounded" than 180's, which are flatter of a curve. Very good grip over on side.
No downside to it as long as the lighter rear wheel holds up to abuse.

Did an overnighter on the SV to give my riding partner an idea of what a bike trip is. We are contemplating a ride to Deals Gap in june.

Beautiful roads and weather, through Ellenville, Grahamsville, Wolliwemec forest to roscoe, to Oneonta NY to visit a friend. 255miles round trip.

Saw a pink '57 chevy




A Covered bridge



Pepacton reservoir, used for NYC

Nice pics, and it looks like a fine Spring day you enjoyed. Hopefully this weekend the weather stays nice and I get get the SV down into WV and stretch her legs a bit.

I'll be riding down to the Gap in June for the SV Rally as well, if you want to ride together. I am leaving a bit early, on the evening of 5/31. I'll arrive in Robbinsville NC on the evening of 5/2 (Sat night)

Hope to see you at the Rally!

I'm street worthy:



I need some rear sets and clipons to complete my ultimate street/track/commutesicle/cross country ripper. And some more drilling and safety wiring.

Has anyone here put handguards on their SV? I'm thinking about getting aluminum handguards with plastic deflectors. Just wanted to see what others have used and how they fit. I have an S model that I put N bars on. I realize the deflectors may get in the way of the front fairing, so I might have to get 'up and back' bar risers to overcome this.

I have Moose Racing handguards on mine, and here is how they look:



There is not much room left on the stock bars, and the levers had to be trimmed down, but they work well.
