What happened to this thread? I haven't had a good laugh at someone Else's expense in days.
found one. best argument against counter steer?
Yeah, I know. It was just tongue in cheek. I have worked on a few motorcycle engines and they are pretty simple (especially my CB350). But the VW 1600 engine is simplicity itself. I once owned a bus in Grand Cayman. I left the island. It was sold but the new owner blew the motor and the person who was selling it for me in my absence gave the guy his money back and took back the van. I had a sailboat delivery to GC so took all the parts with me on the boat and when I got there I pulled the motor in a gravel parking lot, stuck it in the van and rebuilt it completely, then stuck it back in using a cement block and a long timber for a lever to get it in place. Of course, my CB350 motor I can simply lift out of the bike and put on a bench (where it sits right now actually).
Amen, LWR. "BTDT"
There are a lot of motorcycles that use canbus systems. BMW was the first, I think. And anything that uses the newer Marelli ECU also does.
You've heard of something called "winter", right?
Learn to laugh at yourself. It works for me. Plus I get to laugh a lot because I do stoopid stuff every day.
Warm weather will be coming. Do you know where you will need to moor your boat? So is the dragon one of those Rivers of Asphalt that poets talk about? Are there places to pull up and enjoy some beach and swim time? Is there room to raft up and party?
At least they stayed to the right of the double yellow.
Beachwear is so unflattering off the beach... Good thing I ATGATT
'Spose the guy is a plumber? :eek1
Has anyone seen the motorcycles at Deals Gap thread?
No fail really, just kinda...spooky...
Semi-blind corner on the gap, bodywork touching pavement, with a passenger and a trailer.
He probably knows what he's doing, but there's just not a lot of room left for error, or the stupid lurking around the corner.
It looks to me like he has a lot of room left...but it would include sliding his butt off the seat and moving his torso to the inside of the turn.
I'd vote for "he knows what he's doing." The black spot on the left lower fairing is where a K1200LT touches down at about the same time the stands make contact. Judging from the pretty thorough grinding on both the side and center stands and the footpeg, and the absence of any scrapes on the bags or upper fairing, it's pretty clear this isn't his first rodeo.
I vote FAIL!!! Pulling a trailer with a motorcycle is a fools game.
Plus those don't even look like trailer tires.
