Oh you guys, we made it to page 2. So proud my baby is growing strong. Haha
Yeah Sean, and the funny part is there is another thread with the same topic in jomamma! Haha
Do you think Mars is part of the west?
It is a desert.
Or whatever's left?
It fits in somewhere....I think
Or maybe Mars needs its own regional thread?
jo mama is lame. what fun would it be if you didnt actually know the guys who read this shit!
FOOOOOOOOOOOK YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS LMAO! Hell yes! I just spit coffee on my monitor!
So, does the 950 run on hydrogen and liquid oxygen?
Of course mars is in the desert southwest. Come over anytime and I'll point it out to you!
Excellent pic John! We were scheduled to do a night ride, but someone contacted the martian authorities!!!
Now that's funny!
The guy (company) that designed the frame, suspension, wheels for the rover owns a company that builds, among other things, mountain bikes. Litespeed is a high end titanium bike building company. They turned to aerospace when the bike industry crashed in 2007. Their bike sales have fallen off sharply since that time. This is the same company that designed Lance Armstrong's first Tour de France victory TT bike. It was made of titanium. (Had a Trek sticker on it...)
At any rate, I would love to see a US company build a titanium dual sport motorcycle. Not sure if its been done before. But, given they have built MTB's and Mars rovers out of titanium, I would imagine they could do it for motorcycles. Super strong, super light...
Strong? You meant to say stiff, right? Titanium would not stand up to the rigors of off road riding and the flexural modulus that offroad riding requires, the tubes would be fine, but all of the welds would fall part with one good day in the Cali deserts. A road bike like Armstrong's would never see the bashing thatoffloadd bikes get and this Martian machine will never go fast enough to stress the material or the welds.
I had titanium pipe berths and stanchions on my Grand Prix offshore racer and they all broke welds routinely because they can't flex properly without breaking welds.
Great material if used correctly, not for a dirt bike though.
What 'bout 7075 Aluminum dog bones?
I called that one too...........
And you personally saw the titanium on my boat fall apart.
But you were still willing to ride 800 miles with them. But you knew the physics of the "Tennnis shoe" suspension.
Still perfecting that one..
Everyone knows it would have to be billet titanium. Oh and by the way, where's the ktm support vehicle for the mars pic? We all know that thing wouldn't even make it to the moon without breaking down!
Earth Jupiter and Venus
That is FUCKING AWESOME !
