In regards to the picture, I would like to say that this is the first time and last time I have riden in flip flops. I usually practice ATGATT. Thanks for posting an incriminating photo Lalo!
Funny thing about riding in thongs (flipflops, jandals, Japanese riding boots, or whatever else you want to call them).... is that it feels perfectly normal to jump on a scooter and go a block or two wearing them... and some sort of flimsy skid-lid... but it feels totally alien to wear them on the big bike.

There is definitively a 70 degree Husa in my future. They are sick bikes.

Yeah. I thought it was more important to explore the Bayan temple at Angkor Thom.

Been hearing more and more about these things lately.....but one thing strikes me: "The main rear moulded fuel tank,and the front left side moulded fuel tanks will hold 17 litres,whilst the dummy right side tank contains the air filter,for easy access"

I get that perhaps the filter assembly 'might' be enough to offset the weight from fuel in the opposite side of the tank, but once you're running at even half, wouldn't this casue a balance issue? Otherwise, I think its cool. They definitely have the right idea and the fact that there is BSA lineage in this thing is a plus in my book however far removed...paint that thing orange and you've got a winning combo right there

With the tank(s) being so close to centerline, the weight mismatch does not have as much of an effect as a weight mismatch in the saddle bags would. I doubt that it would really be noticable.

There's some test ride reports for the CCM here:

I've been excited about the CCM since I saw CAD drawings of it in the UK back in 2012. It promises to be a great bike... and very very light. Fingers crossed it is brought to the US.

Noah-I might be mistaken, but did you ever find a drop-in automotive fuel injector for these bikes? A good while ago I remember seeing something about an injector-possibly from a Mitsubishi fits these bikes?

Am stocking up on some spares and an injector holder from motominded, a few injector related O-Rings along with a suitable injector, so Anyone-jump in with the answer if you know for sure.

Not that I recall. I'm just using the stock fuel injector and I have a spare. In japan I cleaned both of them and they both seemed good to go.
