Well said that man. He was up here in January, we had a foot of snow and temps down to minus 14 Celsius. It's a 800 mile round trip from Cornwall to where I live in Scotland, he's no sunny day rider.

it isnt fluffer puff or whatever to really like and appreciate your ride by keeping it clean and as rust free as possible. my bike is kept spotless and is ridden hard regularly. it isnt hard to pass a cloth every now and then. would you live in filth as well?!

I'm not a big keep my bike clean...But I do my best.. I don't like rust..
A little dirt.... Well hell I ride it all the time as it's my primary veh.
I maintain both of my bikes inside very well..


When I see a bike very rusty, I think they aren't kept up on the inside as well...

Just found this thread...I was trying to sell my valk. With 90k on it, there is not too many interested in buying it. After seeing what everyone has done, I might have to try the darkside with the car tire and maybe cut off my stock pipes.

Getting to be time for a new set of tires on the Valkyrie. I have a set of Avon Venom R on it now. Like the tire and have gotten good mileage out of them....16,000 miles on them so far. Can't find them Venoms listed in the right sizes any where. Appears as though they might have been replaced by the Conra....???? Anyone with any experieince with the Avon Cobra??
