    I went to the local AutoZone today and bought 2-90 degree 2" exhuast pipes.I cut them and welded them onto the end of my mufflers.Turned out great,looks good and works good,all for $13.00 !!
    THANKS for the heads up on this.!!

    That looks great! I'll be very interested to hear the long distance ride report. I've been toying around with how to haul my road bike and wondered how it would react cross wise like you have it. Yes, that's how many racks are on cars, but the car shields the bike from the headwind. I'll be interested to hear how the bike handles the exposure and if it affects the motorcycle at all.

    Figured out the rear brake problem.There was a 2" x1" rock ( from my driveway ) stuck between the brake pedal and the frame.When I put on the brake the rock got stuck and wouldn't let the pedal release!!.So now me and my 4 year old grandson are out riding around testing the bike rack.We HAD to stop at a new park so he could try out the climbers !!

    Nope, broke her wrist the same afternoon she did her licence (4 weeks ago). Walking up a flight of stairs of all things.

    She's getting really pissed off she can't ride her toy. :lol3
