  1. The clutch..... even though it disengages? It has been a few years since the fluid has been flushed.
  2. My 07 venture is locked in 2nd gear. The clutch does disengage, it just won’t shift. Have any of you had this happen?
  3. Many thanks for the welcomes. By next year, I hope to be built back up enough that we can take our trike out East to pick up remains states on our map. Or at least ride it to Indy to visit friends like we used to. I would love to attend one of your meet-ups / get togethers so I can meet and get to know you folks.
  4. I haven’t been back to this board for awhile. Several years ago, I had some surgeries that didn’t go so well. Because of this, both of my bikes sat without being ridden. So, I sold my 99 Kawasaki 1500 Vulcan Classic, (2 wheeler), to my daughter and her husband. I sure hated to lose her, but she was just gathering dust in our garage. I even considered selling our 07 Venture/Hannigan trike also, but my wife was adamant to keep it. This year, I have built up so that I can ride for approximately an hour and a half at a time. Though I did ride 3 hours one Sunday afternoon, but it really tore me up.
  5. Wow, I’m sorry to hear you were hurt at all, but the good Lord that you weren’t hurt worse! - Bikes can be fixed or replaced. Hopefully you two can be back on two wheels soon! craigr
  6. It’s good to hear that I am remembered. Thanks for the Welcomes!
  7. Since I was never well known on here back when I was on here, I realize that no one missed me. But I wanted to let you all know I plan to be on here again. Over the last three years, I have had a couple of surgeries go bad so I haven’t been riding. I have really been avoiding anything that had to do with riding. I haven’t had my trike out once this year and my 2 wheeler out in three years! I have been afraid to try, then find out I can no longer ride. I know, dumb. But over the last month, I think I have myself talked into giving it a try. Obviously, my wife and I hope that I can.
  8. I WISH I were that young. My oldest was born in 77 so if YOU are old, what does that make ME??
  9. Put me in the category of very disappointed. Though now that I am on my last new bike, and resigned to riding my 07 Venture trike due to my health, I was still hoping that Yamaha would stick with the V4 on the 3rd Generation. I recognize and agree that the market leans very heavily on VTwins, but adding a Venture to that market is kinda showing up late to the party. With the V4, they had a GREAT engine that is unique, something that excelled in so many ways. Now the Venture is 'Just another VTwin' or...... another 'Harley wannabe'. It seems that Yamaha is after NEW customers only
  10. For those that don't know, a couple of years ago, I did the Hannigan Trike conversion on my Blue / Black 07 Venture. Anyways, this thread got me to thinking more..... Now that I have invested 20k on the conversion, on top of the 15k that I paid for my bike, I am kinda stuck with her for a bit. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my Trike, I wish I had done it in 07! But.... Say they do come out with a new Venture and I really like it. After investing all of that money on the conversion, plus the other accessories, I am going to ride her for awhile to get at least some of my money out of her.
  11. I heard mention of a new Venture model in a previous topic but am unsure if they were joking or not. I did google New Yamaha Venture but found nothing. Or, is it still dead? craigr
  12. Well, for now anyways, I've decided to go with a head mount for the camera, (not the helmet mount). This brings up another question.... We are looking to buy extra MicroSD memory chips. We found 64gb microSDHC and MicroSDXC. What is the difference between them? - The HC version is cheaper. craigr
  13. Unless it is COOOLD, we seldom where helmets. So, a Helmet mount isn't practical for us. But, I did think about trying to adapt one of my Headlamp harnesses that I use for fishing. As I type this, I'm thinking I should check out their site, they may already have this available. Great tip about the short arm to keep down vibration, I wouldn't of thought of that. Thanks
  14. My wife got us a new 'GoPro Hero' for Christmas for our 07 Venture Trike. Of course, there is no handlebar mount included. But, mine are full anyways. I don't want it beyond the windshield anyways, do I? I have the 3 pouch above the dashboard, so that space is taken. I have to believe someone on this board has the answer(s) as to what is the best place to mount it. craigr
