    Kenny McDonald's bussiness card.
    It shows him on Eddie Willbanks roundcase 750 Ducati tracker. I was at the Louisville Downs in 1977 and these guys were there too for the AMA National. I didn't own a Ducati then , but, I pulled hard for the Duck because it was something different.
    Kenny Roberts was there as well on the mono-shock 750 Yamaha twin. He was the only guy I saw going all the way round feet up and sideways trying to rein in the runaway H-Ds.

    That Triumph looks good except for:

    Front fender looks totally out of place and wrong on a street tracker. Besides, it's totally useless as a fender so why have it there at all?

    Front fork angle almost looks too steep, like the triple clamps are offset or raked differently than the steering head on the frame.

    I looked those up, and they list two compounds: medium and soft.

    Of course, that could translate to soft, and softer. :D

    which tires did you look up?

    M6119, the rear tire in the pic above, comes in hard & medium (both DOT approved)

    M6118 comes in medium, soft & ultra-soft. medium & soft are DOT approved.

    Maybe Don Miller can back me up here, but I was thinking that the Golden Tyres that Chris Carr is selling IS DOT approved. I was looking over my buddy's flattracker, and I think that was the tires he had on at the time I noticed that DOT rating.

    It is possible that I am dreaming this up too... :1drink
