It's for the Harley approved anchor. It must have fallen off or failed.

Nope, they're weighted, they won't whip the crap out of you but the original intent was to slap a windshield or window on an offending "cage". Hence, "get back whips". Like #46 says it's mostly a fashion statement these days. Then again, there are ways to find out..


"I'm thinking the whips are how cruiser riders brag about their cornering prowess. Its like sport bike riders who grind down the foot pegs or the outside of the soles of the boots. Cruiser riders need something like that but don't want to actually lean enough to scrape chrome. This way too, if they are too slow, they can just get a longer whip so they still have something to brag about. "


Look a little closer Peaches, the boards on that Road King have been ground plenty, they don't come stock that way.. It's still a fail, he should be hanging off, wouldn't need to scrape the boards..

This is why whips, road rage, kicking car doors, etc. are all bad ideas... Cars have the all the advantages.

I've seen plenty of bikes with the whips on the bars before....but attaching it to the levers is one of the stupidest things I've seen.

But, still, it doesn't surprise me that the type of person that would put one on their bike would do something like this.

Don't you fret none Spagthorpe. whips have covered many an accident free mile...

Personally if the neighborhood is that bad I'd rather run with this type of setup.

Don't laugh too hard until you know what you are talking about.
That is referring to new trucks being optioned out online, not vans. Any 4x4 van from Ford or GM IS going to be a Quigley, Sportmobile or similar conversion, NOT factory. You won't get Ford to make a van 4wheel drive, they will send it off, and Quigley wont even think about converting anything other than brand new vans. 5,000 miles on a 2012, Sorry can't do.

Here is a local Ford dealers website promoting 4x4 vans.

Show me a link to a King Ranch van!

I've seen newer 4x4's run in four on pavement with no problems. Not for 100's of miles, but 5-10 miles. I'm just saying it CAN be done without major issues, contrary to what others have posted.
Like I said before(one more time) I wouldn't do it!
Unless you had a locker in the differential, it should not have done that. You had bigger problems. Did you maybe have big tires? How many miles on the Jeep? Did you buy it new? Was it abused, like a lot of Jeeps are?
On ice nothing would have been binding so again, you had other problems unless you left it in 4wheel 24/7.
But still, since the discussion was about t-cases, not differentials, and your T-case did not explode, your story has little to no bearing on the subject.

My Quigley has manual hubs and a manual shift transfer case. In the winter, I leave the hubs locked and run in 2wd and shift to 4wd as needed. In 85K miles, I've had to replace the half shaft universals once.

Who gives a crap about trucks and transfercases, this is a bike thread

Really bad idea, I can just imagine the biker trying to flee from the roid raged cager he just managed to piss off.

As for that vegas video... what was that biker trying to accomplish anyways, the car drivers pushes him twice or thrice and the biker doesnt do squat, he literally almost lands on his ass from the first push. I guess thats part of the "trying to act like a tough biker"- thing and he ultimately fails when the car driver decides to brake check him, guess that whip in his hand caused him to fail braking.

Who gives a fuck about hubs, 4x4 anything on a MOTORCYCLE forum in a MOTORCYCLE thread?!

I've got a 4x4 Jeep, I'm not on the dragon thread spouting off about it, take this shit elsewhere. it's more annoying than the ABS and perfect line arguments, but at least those have relevance!
