  1. If you need help please ask , there is a lot of know how on this site . There somethings that books can not tell you , stuff that comes form many years on the road
  2. I like the windshield height to be just tall enough so that if I sit up straight I see over the top edge of it .. I have found that if you paint or tint the lower half of the windshield it will help to stop the head light glare from the head lights caused by oncoming cars at night The led lights on the new cars seem to present a larger problem or maybe what they need is a proper alignment I make my own using Lexan
  3. That is one a good looking bike , I hope you enjoy it
  4. I know that amost of us sometimes don't think or realize , has happened to us as we approach the senior years ...At 74 I am finding out that some of the time I spent on the race track or doing a cross country endurance run that caused many injuries has a way of telling me , that I need to be careful and it may be time for a trike ... Don't give up find something easy to handle .
  5. I will post more pictures once I have electronics trimmed down ...I plan to match the paint on the rear of the bike to the front
  6. I like going a dealer or another bike repair shop and guys tell me that they have some junkers out back in the storage shed and I say great ...Are they for sale ?? ..They then say yes , but why would you want them ... I like nothing better buying one and 2 weeks ride it back to shop I bought the bike form saying I have a used bike for sale that runs great ...I have often found that some little problem which does not come to any one of the guys mind is all that is wrong ...I just bought one last week and all that was wrong was the crankcase vent was plugged and the engine was pushing the oil
  7. Right I would like to drive anywhere ...My doctor handed me a medical suspension on April 1rst and Last I heard it will last till September ...This all because of medication screw up between the doctors and the pharmacist ...And of course the government agency that handles all licenses and insurance say that they will enforce this suspension to the fullest ...If.I do not comply I will spend some time in jail ... The medical exam has to be done by 3 different doctors at a cost of $90.00 each time which I have to pay ...

    In Memory

    I have never served , but I have family and friends who have ...When they come home we need to make sure all their needs are covered ...Some of the people come home needing a lot of help and we need to do our park for them ...And for those that do not come let us remember them , because they gave all they could .
  9. That would be a handy unit , and about the right size ..I built a steel trailer that size 6 years ago , I found that when loading.. 2.. 800 bikes onto it a little S10 V6 truck is to light a vehicle to do the pulling , becomes unsafe in the corners on the highway and you will need brakes on the trailer ....Keep it as close to the ground as you can for easy loading ..Build a strong hitch for safety reasons ...A 180 amp Mig will do the job in either aluminum or steel , only problem the aluminum conversion on the Mig is costly
  10. It is sad that there are many drivers do not know the rules of the road , and there are many who just do not care ...It might help if the traffic court would throw the book at the so called ,,,I don't know and I don't care drivers...We have short piece of 4 lane between 2 little cities here in Manitoba .....It easy to tell who knows how to drive and who does not
  11. I was taught the kindness part in life , and I can personally tell you that it works ...I was always the smallest guy in the group and was constantly asked , when are you going to grow .So I always had to go that extra mile The experience bringing wisdom , that is something we keep on trying for .
  12. Kindness brings friendship ...experience brings wisdom 

  13. I appreciate your sense of humor ,, The are times when doing a project like this you need a sense of humor
  14. Next on the list is to hookup and mount computer monitor , there some features that will be handy .. I also need to make a small dash panel for the signal lights, neutral , high beam and temp gauge .. I plan on painting the remainder of the bike ... My ground clearance under center shock is 5 inches at 15 lbs and 6 1/12 inches at 22 lbs air pressure I have had the bike apart bolt by bolt from front to back ..It has been a 10 month project
