Review: Ciro 3D Phone Mount

Whether for good or for ill, it’s just a fact that riders are using their cell phones in the cockpit. Audio streaming, GPS navigation, telemetry logging apps and “vlogging”, the list goes on and on. And there’s as many mount options as there are reasons to mount. From sketchy twist-grip thongs more...

Re: Starter Bike

Mick, Welcome to TMW! You've come to the right place. Any of those three would be excellent started bikes, though my vote is for the Shadow. Honda builds a bulletproof bike you can count on, and honestly the price point is going to be a lot easier to swallow than the VStar or the H-D. You should be ...

Re: To Ride an Iron Horse - Jack of the Green's Blog

Our write-up of the CME will be up shortly on the main page, so stay tuned! In other news, Carrie and I finally bought that class C motorhome we've been talking about! It's an older model but in great shape, and we'll be acquiring an enclosed trailer soon for porting the bikes all over with. More to...

Re: New

You've come to the right place James! My suggestion would be to look back through the Cool Wall forum for some examples of what you might be looking for, also the Register Your Rides thread to maybe connect with an owner and ask about their impressions. My wife rides a 2012 Ninja 650 and she loves i...

Re: To Ride an Iron Horse - Jack of the Green's Blog

Just two quick notes I wanted to post! First, I just hit 1000+ posts on Total Motorcycle. I've known it was coming, and I made myself not post half a dozen silly little things just to get to 1000. I'm proud to be a regular contributor here on TMW and I genuinely appreciate having this forum to voice...

Re: #365: This or That? 2018 Harley-Davidson 1200 Custom vs 2018 Indian Scout Bobber

Definitely the Indian. Hard to pick any one thing exactly, except for everything. :) Modern styling (mag wheels instead of spoked), modern technology (liquid cooled motor), and just all-around a cleaner looking bike.

Re: To Ride an Iron Horse - Jack of the Green's Blog

So here's a funny story. Just now I was searching for a bike boneyard to help a new guy out in one of the other threads. Specifically I was looking for the boneyard that Carrie and I purchased her chin fairing from, for her Ninja 500. Found them right away, and realized they're based in Missoula, MT...

Re: Finding compatible parts for older bikes.

Found 'em, they're outta Missoula, not one of the Dakotas. Even a link to some parts for your bike.

Re: Finding compatible parts for older bikes.

Hi Dave, and welcome to TMW! You've come to the right place, our community of enthusiasts is sure to have some suggestions for you. I can't speak to what modern or modern-ish parts might be compatible with your bike, and my assumption would be there'll probably be some custom fabrication involved in...

Re: 2018 Cool Wall: Your thoughts, comments, opinions, suggestions

I think it could be argued the board is already tracking "meh" votes in a way. For instance, on the BMW 750FS most recently on the cool wall, there were 10 votes (one of which was mine just now) and 568 views for the thread itself. Given an arbitrary assumption like 50% original views (as opposed to...

Re: To Ride an Iron Horse - Jack of the Green's Blog

Just a couple updates, since I haven't posted for awhile. Even though it's the first half of January, temperatures here in Utah have been climbing. Our steeds are stabled, but any day now we'll get the opportunity to take them out and we're itching to do so. I recently purchased some equipment and i...

Re: 2018 Cool Wall: Your thoughts, comments, opinions, suggestions

I've certainly noticed the lack of participation on the Cool Wall, and I'll cop to being guilty of it myself some weeks. I think it's definitely a case of FB, Twitter and IG pulling peoples attentions away from this type of format. FB has a polling option in the Groups area I think, for that to work...
