    My better half is very understanding of Moto stuff with me. She greatly encourages me to ride more. Heck, I'm leaving for the UP in a few hours. :ricky If I had a better track record of keeping bikes long term, I'd be making a bigger push to get me a new bike sooner. But considering we moved this year, I got the 650 a few months ago, and the TSE just over a year ago......... I'll have to space out a new bike a bit :lol3

    That is pretty trick.

    I think it is time to see what can be built with carbon for motorcycles. Even regular dirtbike rims could be a good place to start. The Husky/GPX subframes are pretty close to carbon.

    It’s quite possible performance can’t be improved tenfold. So why bother?

    They need to hire better engineers. The potential is there, they just need to unlock it.

    I am still wondering why he spent the money on a Elle and not a X.

    I just noticed the cheap plastic miter box in the background, he is a pro with the hacksaw.

    The way those guys bitch and moan about what the bike isn’t, I’d say a 250L would’ve been a better choice than a 450X. :photog

    They’re better men than me if they’re riding those uncorked hot rod bikes all day long.

    Knot better, just more in tune with their chassis flex.

    Imagine if Vortex maid motor mounts?!? Oh the handling! The folding of tens!
