Headed south soon for some vintage motorcycle porn!
Careful. I've seen this guy. He's a giant who likes to ride through thunderstorms with little or no lighting depending on his mood.
Be very wary of the Nothstine!
All part of that Viking thing up in that Northland. A little freezing rain/snow and a headwind is nothing when you are conquering. Hell, his forbearers had pinetorches for lights on the longships..........
Hell, he deserves some kind of a award just for riding on Lakeshore Drive during the tourist season.
The ride in today was a little snowy. Lake effect the entire way, big, wet flakes. My left hand was a wiper the whole way so I could see. Once I got to TC, the roads were dry and the sun was shining. Go figure.:huh
If they have a windshield wiper, you'd be all set.
What I need to do is rig up a way to drive the rig from the sidecar. That way I could put up the roof and side curtains and be nice and dry......oh and fix up a wiper for the hack, too.....and maybe "t" off the radiator hose and put a small heater core in the hack, too.
Don't forget the peter heater.
You mean a handwarmer?
So... you want a car with a motorcycle bolted to the side of it?
Don't forget the thermal imaging or FLIR camera and monitor, so no matter how bad it gets you can still see to ride. Now that would be cool.
First snow down here in Sturgis today.. didn't last more than a few minutes but gave me motivation to start the install my $5 heated grips.
Coldest I rode the Valkyrie to work (18mi trip) was 17deg. A little over half way there, I was thinking they would have to pry me off the bike when I got to work. 25-30deg was one thing, but dam, below 20deg was over the line.
Not really, just passing time.
I'll have to take you for a ride in a hack sometime....no mistaking it for a car, especially off-road hacking.
(but you have to be willing to get out and push if needed....)
BTW, that sidecar we found in a barn turns out to be a rather rare factory built 1920's Indian Delivery sidecar.
I was hoping you bought that. Looked like big bucks. I'm sure you paid the grieving widow a fair price.
Grieving widow? I bought it out of an old storage barn at a motorcycle dealership!!
They asked me how much I'd give them for it, but I just hemmed and hawed about not knowing what it was or anything else about it, so I let them name the price and when they asked if I would give them $200 for it, with a very straight face and stroking my beard for a minute, I said well, since you can't tell me what it is or how old, I suppose I could go up to $200.
Didn't know for sure what it was, but looking at the construction, I figured late teens to mid-30's and likely for an American bike, either Harley or Indian.
Ted and I had to contain ourselves until we got in the truck to leave.
Don't let Than know what I paid for it....some folks might consider that highway robbery.
Your secret is safe with me. I saw a couple of Thans bros on their brand new Concours patrol bikes in San Antonio today. Sweet!
Cool! Always nice to see moto cops (well, maybe not for some ) and even cooler when they're not on Harleys.
I wish my department had motorcycles, but in order to ride one I'd have to be a traffic guy. I couldn't imagine just writing tickets for a living.
I've seen these guys around before. They always ride side by side which I think is suicidal.:eek1 I've seen a moto cop cruising the downtown Xways in GR too.
