Your posts there make a lot of sense. The fork separation problem is one very interesting situation to follow from that particular thread and others.

(threadjack over, pics please )

Car Tire?

Looks like he is running a care tire on the rear. That could be a big part of the probem.

It looks like a regular MC tire to me, front and back...

My guess is insufficient clearance for the given lean angle, which it seems to be aggravated by the extra load, passenger + luggage...and let's trow in inexperience, shall we?

Excellent, I haven't lost my touch! Here's a little goodie just for you: http://news.google.com/newspapers?ni...g=4954,3688571

Be prepared for many questions about which oil to use.


Here's a few great looking metalheads. First up a Swede:.



Wow, even a Frenchie:



Here's a Limey:


Next we have a German:


Finally an Americano:

I think that Austen dude have something to do with Austenite?

Isn't Austenite a non-magnetic solid solution of carbon and iron that exists in steel above a critical temperature of 1333°F?

My east german instructor was a hot metallurgist. I almost failed the non ferrous class due to her low rise jeans, tight shirts and smile.

I heard about Birnell and blowholes butt I thought Norman Rockwell invented the steel hardness tester that bears his name?
If you can’t baffle them with bullship blind them with science.

Yes and yes. But it gets a lot better. Sometimes other elements are added for various reasons. Among other things, they can be divided into two groups--austenite formers, and ferrite formers. Some elements are strong aust. formers, C and Ni. Cr is a strong ferrite former.

So, if you add a little Ni to a carbon steel, you can have aust. down to near absolute zero. Ni is amazing stuff. A small % can turn both gold and copper white/grey. It can also screw up your skin, which is why metallurgists long ago invented wooden nickels.
