It's his reliable transportation for the many times his Harley is in the shop.

Probably half of the early Honda CB-750's ended up with bars like that, along with having the forks extended.

Took my Bandit out for a little jaunt last week up to The White Mountains. Took it out on the Kanc and let her open up a lil' bit.

I was up that way in June, burned out some of the carbon on the Owl's Head heading up to Gorham & Berlin. Cleaned out some more on 16 up the Androscoggin- nice road but mind the moose.

Sure wish I was up there now, central MD is miserable in July/August, not as bad as winter- I guess riding in the wet cold is worse but some days summer is a close 2nd.... I'd move up to NH in a second if there wasn't so much holding me here.

Very long pause. Why? Oh, I have this Ape-Hanger project I'd like to do!

Yesterday my 5 degree advancer from Holeshot arrived. Dale, who owns Holeshot, offers such great service. Great communication all through the purchasing and sending process.

The kit comes with the advancer and a new gasket. There is a very well written set of installation instructions.
I had it all fitted and the bike started up in under 10 minutes

I took the bike out for a quick blat. I sure have noticed a better response in low and mid range. I though the 12 was good in standard trim. Its even better now.

I have the OEM exhaust still fitted, no airbox mod and no re-jetting.

I was wondering how much the Holeshot advancer added. I did Dales full stage 1 (jets & airbox hole) along with the advancer, made the engine run a lot better- still on stock pipe. Gained something like 5mpg from it and lots more power.

That picture makes me throw up in my mouth a little.

I have to say I would ride this Bandit before I would be seen in public on the sparkly chrome turd next to it.

Interesting collection there, even a Honda Rune in the background. Don't see many of those around.

I thought I saw the only two sold at Moto GP in Monterey the other weekend.

Must be three people with more money than brains in the USA
