Only on the Touring and Trike models, there's no place to hang the rads on the others.

Re: 1982 GL500 SilverWing rear shock - Replacement options..?

Being as it is an 82, most of the parts have gone obsolete through Honda. That being said, your first stop should be at your dealer to see if there's a Hail Mary chance of one being in stock. If you're not already a member of a CX500/650 owners forum, you should sign up on one. Owners forums are the...

Re: 2007 Honda VT750C2 (Shadow Spirit) Cable lengths

Go to www.partscanada.com, scroll down to "Learn More", select "Catalogs", then select the "Street" catalog. There's a section in there on handlebars and risers, some of it is bike make and model specific.

Re: 2007 Honda VT750C2 (Shadow Spirit) Cable lengths

You will most definitely need longer cables and wire extensions if you plan on installing apehangers. If you're open to other options, a set of 4" pullback risers using the stock handlebars can usually be installed without changing cables and is a good alternative to apehangers. Where in Canada are ...

Re: Only Experienced bikers need reply.

I stopped riding with groups because they don't practice what they preach. Seconded. I was heavy into the riding club scene for decades, but in the last 3yrs I've been doing solo rides and avoiding group runs. There are very few people I trust enough to ride with and I find the journeys are more en...

Hell to the no. Fail. So many styling miscues that I don't know where to begin. The radiator looks like an oversized afterthought from the parts bin, the gas tank protrusions resemble Ron Perlman's hacked off horns from the Hellboy movie, the exhaust header looks like intestines spilling out from an...

Re: Gummiente's Blog!

Finally rode Zero home today. There was a delay due to a registration glitch that was finally resolved yesterday and the bike is now in my name, with a new Veteran plate that I installed this morning. Decided not to store it at the shop over the winter, as I already have my Road Glide there and with...

Drag it out on too the street, beat it with a club, stone it with rock and then burn it with fire until it is nothing more then a bad memory and a melted pool of metal and plastic.......

Well, dammit. Thanks to Photobucket getting all greedy, all the pics in my blog are gone because I refused to pay their ransom to keep them online. Peckerheads.

I went with "Awesome". Like it or not and all pro/con arguments aside, this IS the future. Electric vehicles have come a long way and are no longer viewed as expensive, awkward, limited use oddities.

The Guzzi, because I've always had a soft spot for them.
The Indian, because it would be my eye candy ride.
The Vulcan because it is a tried and true platform without a lot of unecessary gimmicks.

Death of the HD Dyna

Harley unveiled their 2018 lineup yesterday, and while there really wasn't anything new besides colours and M8 motors in the Softail family, the shocker was the elimination of the entire Dyna lineup. The Low Rider and Street Bob names still exist, but have now been tacked onto Softail variants. I've...
