Running was a pastime 30 years ago for me.
Yup Red is definately a good fella........lot of good people o this forum and TT too....always someone to give a helping hand when needed...guess it`s the bikes we ride
I had some fun times back then too! and some not so fun. But it wasn't on a bike...1967 Camaro RS/SS, 1964 Dodge 440 coupe, my dads 1970 4 door Chrysler Newport :huh, Ah the good ol days.
Welcome to ADV Marlon!
Cool, thanks !!
My cooler project is taking a lot longer than expected but here it is fresh back from the annodizer. Now I need to get to the hydraulic shop and see if they can source fittings for some custom hoses.
Ain't that the truth...
It's all about the first 30 seconds most times.
It's funny when you just disappear. A quick left followed with a blast down a short alley = gone before he gets a chance to realize your running.
Better yet is when your stepbrother gets pulled over for some BS shortly afterwards and has the cop I lost stop to talk to the cop that stopped him. They wanted to know why he started to laugh when he described the rider and bike. He wouldn't talk... He came home and told me about it, we laughed about it for days. I just rode a different bike... Even better my stepdad worked for State Patrol... He laughed too...
Been there, done that. Worked for a couple weeks, then the dog didn't care. Lab/shepherd mix.
Hey man, looks like we have a couple things in common!
Our bigger dogs don't bark often, but when they do, it means something!
Plus, they actually learn when I talk to them about barking about stuff that doesn't matter.
It's true, the xrl dirt setup can do a pretty good job on pavement of taming the tight mountain passes and more challenging back roads. Most riders don't have the practice (or are not crazy enough) to keep up, no matter the bike. My street bike isn't the most performance-minded but I've passed more than a few other bikes in the twisties even two-up. And I ride with a couple of guys that I have to struggle to keep up with. So it's all relative. It's about the fun of the challenge to do the best we can in a given set of circumstances.
The stories are endless, but yeah... it's all about them not knowing which way you went. Watch 'em blow by while hiding behind a tree in someone's driveway. Set in parking lots and watch them scratch their heads. I also found they can only take a car so far down a trail into the woods! And back when I drove my '69 Charger R/T s.e., those gutless fords and chevys of the era had no chance of keeping me in sight.
I tend to use other techniques these days, like talking to them. I've been let go for well over a hundred recently. But this one a-hole came up behind me from afar, I thought I was pulling over to let him past, but he pulled in behind and accused me of 42 in a 25. Fact is, I was crawling - he picked up someone else coming down the hill and blamed it on me. Seemed to have a hard-on for bikes. Judges would not listen. I truly regretted not disappearing that day - it would have been so easy. This justice system encourages not participating.
It's funny about your stepbro laughing,,, but these days they'd probably night-stick him to death in order to get him to spill the beans!
Something like this maybe....
The real question is...
Which is more entertaining???
Anyone have a suggestion for fixing a broken turn signal button? I have a post here feeling out ideas.
Nah that end is easy, 1/4npt, I'm going to see if they can source the fittings that tie into the bike and get some one piece hoses made, I figure its one less point of failure if there's no hose clamps and I won't have to cut the stock oil line.
You may have to be more specific as to the nature of the malfunction. If it's sluggish/stuck, have you tried loosening it with WD40? The nature of the 'broken-ness' will determine the nature of the fix.
Hey Barron, that's one classy-looking oil cooler and installation!!
Gotta read bro. Fully functional, from the pic you can see the tab is broken.

I replied in your thread, but what the hey
I'd go down to the hardware store or parts store and pick up a tube of that Quick Steel. It is soft so you can form it and I would reform the end of the button the way I wanted it. You could even file some little groves in it like the original.
bumper repair epoxy Seems they dont have hardness ranges now.
That looks nice. Please let us know if you are able to source the fittings for the Honda hookups.
I love this place and the good people here....coming on brightens my day
And its really helping fight the winter doldrums
