Wow that was quick. Wonder if he'll trade for a G310GS.
He's taking quite a loss for picking that color. :)
I paid the balance of my invoice today. Now, I'm waiting to hear when I can pick it up.
In the meantime, I keep adding things to my shopping cart on Janusmotorcycles.com. I'll have another check to write when I get there.
THAT'S the fun of it. have a blast!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Got mine back on the road today for a quick 30mi test ride. Yup, it’s more than the sum of it’s parts and the spec sheet suggests!
Dang, does this mean it will make an appearance in Maggie Valley?
LIkely if I can figure out a workable luggage solution from my collection
I've been back and forth with Mitch by e-mail, but catching up to racing. The 500 and Road America MotoAmerica. It would be costly for Janus to do, but to have a display at RA could have sold some bikes. Looking to take a road trip to Goshen soon.
i hope their at Vintage Fest!
Pics of my Halcyon #706.
I'll be driving to Goshen again very soon.
I bought a hitch hauler. I thought it would be easier than my Kendon trailer for such a light motorcycle.
Very cool that they send you build pics! Gorgeous bike! Really looking forward to your thoughts on it after putting some miles on.
Aren’t you tempted to do a fly and ride; riding back via two-lane roads?
I plan to post my thoughts.
I would be if the airports weren't so far from Goshen and Endicott. The cost of doing that would be WAY more than having it shipped to me. I'm considering the long way home stopping for rides on the way.
I plan to ride it lots of miles, but not long rides. It's not a motorcycle I want to carry enough gear on for a tour. I can see taking trips with it on my hitch hauler and riding at my destinations.
If I want to tour, I have other motorcycles.
Oh my,Kieth. #706 that you had commissioned for Janus to build just for you! I am so curious to learn about your experience on the bike. But another question, what hitch hauler are you planning to use, and what vehicle? You are on your way to a new way of 2 wheel enjoyment. Keep us informed.
I found a https://www.mototote.com/ model m3 hitch carrier on Craigslist. It was as new at a great price. I haven't carried a motorcycle on it yet. I did put it on my Nissan Murano to bring 50 miles home. I like the design a lot. I can adjust the distance from the channel to the car so it is only far enough out to clear the handlebar. The tongue weight limit of the hitch is 350 lbs. The Halcyon plus the carrier itself is below that.
PSA for future owners
While this is a new bike, it is FAR from modern in suspension.
Mid corner, high speed, bumps can initiate a shocking but controllable weave.
I had already figured that, what with the hardtail and unusual front end. Does it just take you by surprise the first time only? Once it happens, can you ride through it easily? Obviously no tuning the suspension. Are you running the "street" tires?
I am on street tires. Since it’s only happened once, it was a total surprise. I did ride thru it by chopping throttle and dragging rear brake.
When rode it home the front rotor was warped and it didn’t act like this at all.
I checked the list and 5 Iron Butt rides (1000+ mile day) have been completed on a Janus and all on 250"s.
