Early 750 Shadow(twin) had valve lash adjusters, and 750 Nighthawk(four). Don't know of any others.

Feel free to ask questions, you'll meet a lot of nice people in here.

Would be glad to hear about any good rides in Texas as I may add your state next year into my Western US tour.

Yes for sure we all smell like exhaust, whether it's coming from your own exhaust pipe or other cagers. Try standing in a room of smokers and see how you turn out.

I use a small magnetic tank bag by Joe Rocket-Manta. It has a pouch for cell phone, small pocket for keys and wallet. A larger pocket for other items. The magnetic flaps fold neatly inside back of bag and comes with a shoulder strap and waterproof cover. http://www.joerocket.com/jrp/catalog/us/produ...

I have been on Olympic Peninsula 101 and La Push off Hwy 110 was very nice. Heading south on 101 you see a little of the ocean near Kalaloch but the rest is mostly inland with only the forest to view. Ocean Shores and around Aberdeen and further south is nice. I would recommend riding from Olympia o...

Interesting places- La Conner, Port Gamble, Poulsbo, Anacortes, Leavenworth, Winthrop, Deception Pass, Port Townsend, Fort Casey, Grand Coulee -Hood Canal east a...
