  1. This is amazing.. Wow.. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4h_8EThuec&list=PL98A556CD430E890E&index=2&feature=plpp_video]Lee Hartung Collection Day 1: 4 out of 5 - YouTube[/ame] And go here if you want to see more
  2. :fingers-crossed-emoI have a (Barn find) 2000 RSV MM only 10k mile on it. Last month when I first got it a ran a can a sea foam as recommended but I always thought is ran a little ruff. But with past BMW experience most bike runs a little ruff. Well after some late night reading someone here said that they run surprisingly good on only 3 cylinders. Well, mine does. After starting it and running it for 30 seconds my left rear (#1) cylinder exhaust pipe is still cold. I pulled the plug and it looks oily and not firing, all the rest look great. I stuck the removed plug in the wire and cranked it and it has spark. I checked the compression and its fine. I suspect a plugged carb? When I pulled the gas tank I also noticed that the Carb for the cylinder that is not running has a nice coating of Oil/Gas seepage crust. I ask you, What would the guru’s do next?
  3. A new purchase for me that may interest some of you. This is called a BIKE BARN, sold out of B.C. I made a "pad" out of paving stones we had elsewhere, and the Barn took about 2 hours to assemble. It is a drive-in-close-up structure, no fear of hot pipes, good for all seasons, weighed down by cinder blocks but you can permanently secure if you wish. There is a gif on the website of a pretty girl in shorts opening and closing it. http://www.thebikebarn.net/index.html
  4. As always, Craigslist cost me some more $$ today. Saw a simple ad for "cargo trailer" in the motorcycle section,clicked and it read "Shoreline cargo trailer. Works well". No pictures in the ad, no phone # but I sent a e-mail for more info and sent my phone #. I forgot about the ad then later this morning I get a call from the guy. I asked what kind of shape it was in and he said.....Well it has a few chips in the paint in the front from being towed and a small scuff in the paint on a back corner. I'm thinkin....wouldn't it be great if that were the ONLY issues?! I got the directions and headed over to look at it. It turns out he bought it new in 1981, used it gently for a few years then it sat in his barn "for a looooong time". His description was right on! When he first bought it he didn't like the short tongue and the way it towed and he wanted to get the ice chest out of the inside for more room so he made a new 1 piece tongue,added a rack for the ice chest,made a insulated cover for the ice chest then decided to build a rear bumper and have it chromed. He also said there were some problems with the wiring when it was new and instead of laying on the ground to work on the wiring,he built a really neat stand that slides under the trailer hooking on to the axle and rear frame section. Once the stand is under the trailer,you simply pick up the tongue and the trailer rolls on to the back and is VERY sturdy. This makes it a breeze to check the wiring,pack the bearings etc. He had the trailer stored on end in the barn for years. This demo of the stand gave me a good opportunity to inspect the bottom of the fiberglass and frame etc. Anyway, the fiberglass is in like new condition,the original paint is still in pretty good shape(good enough to use as is) and he included a chrome swivel hitch,the stand,the ice chest and cover and 2 new unmounted tires. It cost me about as much as a new HF tagalong would have but The Shoreline is built much better IMO. So far my only plans are to change out the bulbs for LEDs,clean,inspect and pack the bearings,mount new tires and change the plug out to one that will hook to my bike. I couldn't resist and took it to town,loaded up 80 pounds of dog food and a weeks worth of groceries and it pulled fine. I haven't had time to clean the barn dust off yet but it don't look too bad............ http://i47.tinypic.com/30139ea.jpg http://i49.tinypic.com/1zoak95.jpg
  5. So I'm sitting here listening to the evening traffic report for the Sacramento area, and so far there's been 4 MC related accidents, one a rider and passenger with ambulances, and half a dozen cage fender benders. It a damn war zone out there.... Really makes you think about when to stay in the barn... 4 is sorta unusual, but I can always plan on hearing about at least one in the AM, and one during the PM rush hour...
  6. Hey! I would like to send you all an invite to our post wedding reception via this informal post. It will be Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, May 28th in Dallas, Wi. The address is 1855 2 1/2 Ave. Chetek, Wi. 54728. Were having a barn dance, pig roast, DJ, and maybe a bonfire after the Dj is done. Food served at 5pm and DJ starts at 7pm. There will be room for camping. We will also have a couple kegs of High Life, but if you want anything else alcoholic to drink, it's BYOB. It will be outside and in a barn, so please dress casually. Please RSVP with number attending via text to PM or email to theskes@yahoo.com by April 30th so we know how much food to order. I'll be saving an area for cycle parking somewhere. I hope to meet more of the venturerider gang. Hope to see you there, Bill & Jeannie
  7. Anybody have any ideas on how to cut down the dust in a pole barn? I and my wife have been spending every weekend cleaning out her Dad's pole barn since the snow cleared enough to get into it. It was used to store hay up until 20 years or so ago. I got all the old hay out and now the dirt has a layer of real fine dirt on top that is more like dust. This is where we are having our post wedding reception and we are trying to think of a good way to cut down the dust on the floor so it doesn't get kicked up so easily when all the people start showing up. I was thinking that a good wetting down would help the finer particles clump together a bit and not get kicked up so easily. I also thought maybe some sawdust might help. Especially where the dance floor is gonna be. Others have mentioned a load of gravel. But I'm thinking that fresh laid gravel is hard to walk on until it is good and settled. The party is in three weeks. Anybody have any other ideas? Thanks, Bill
  8. An electrical fire burned a farmer’s barn down. The next day, the farmer’s wife went to the insurance agent to file a claim. She told the agent the barn was insured for $50,000 and she wanted the money. The agent told her that is not how insurance works. An insurance adjuster will come out and determine what the barn was worth. Then we will provide you a new barn equal to that value. The woman thought for awhile and said: “If that’s how it works, I want to cancel my husbands life insurance.”
  9. After living in the remote wilderness of West Virginia all his life, an old hillbilly decided it was time to visit the big city. In one of the stores he picks up a mirror and looks in it. Not ever having seen one before, he remarked at the image staring back at him, "How about that! Here's a picture of my Daddy." He bought the mirror thinking it was a picture of his Daddy, but on the way home he remembered his wife didn't like his Father, so he hung it in the barn, and every morning before leaving for the fields, he would go there and look at it. His wife began to get suspicious of these many trips to the barn. One day after her husband left, she searched the barn and found the mirror. As she looked into the glass, she fumed: "So that's the ugly thing he's been running around with." SHHHHHH don't anybody say I posted this!!!!!
  10. Have you ever wondered where and how yodeling began? Many years ago a man was traveling through the mountains of Switzerland. Nightfall was rapidly approaching and he had nowhere to sleep. He went up to a farmhouse and asked the farmer if he could spend the night. The farmer told him that he could sleep in the barn. As the story goes, the farmer's daughter asked her father, "Who is that man going into the barn?" "That fellow traveling through," said the farmer. "needs a place to stay for the night, so, I told him he could sleep in the barn." The daughter said, "Perhaps he is hungry." So she prepared a plate of food for him and then took it out to the barn. About an hour later, the daughter returned. Her clothing disheveled and straw in her hair. Straight up to bed she went. The farmer's wife was very observant. She then suggested that perhaps the man was thirsty. So she fetched a bottle of wine, took it out to the barn, and she too did not return for an hour. Her clothing was askew, her blouse buttoned incorrectly. She also headed straight to bed. The next morning at sunrise the man in the barn got up and continued on his journey, waving to the farmer as he left. When the daughter awoke and learned that the visitor was gone, she broke into tears. "How could he leave without even saying goodbye," she cried. "We made such passionate love last night!" "What?" shouted the father as he angrily ran out of the house looking for the man, who by now was halfway up the mountain. The farmer screamed up at him, "I'm going to get you! You had sex with my daughter!" The man looked back down from the mountainside, cupped his hand next to his mouth, and yelled out..... "LAIDTHEOLADEETOO"
  11. I am going tomorrow to go look at this bike and from what he tells me I think it will be in my garage. I just need to find a trailer hitch for it. http://treasure.craigslist.org/mcy/2195401066.html
  12. Just got off the telephone with my grandson ,age 12...he is redecorating his bedroom and is looking for old license plates...I told him I would ask around... If you have any old plates hanging around the garage or in the barn and would like to donate them to the cause, please drop me a pm..I'll pay the postage...
  13. Well, it's 38* this morning and I will be riding the bike over to my buddies place for winter storage and maintenance. Wish I would have washed her up real good on one of those nice days back in the first two weeks of Nov, but hey, I was hunting. Going to take advantage of the bike being gone to move the Bike Barn somewhere better where its more level. Will start next week with an oil change and deep cleaning.
  14. We took a nice ride today and ended up at Bills Biker Barn in Bloomsburg,Pa. if you are anywhere near this place ya gotta stop in and check it out. It is amazing the guy has bikes and memorabilia from everywhere. There is so much stuff you dont know where to look. It would be an awesome place for a Meet-n-Eat, it is definetly worth the $5 admission to anyone who likes bikes and or antiques. He had a coin operated player guitar, just like an old player piano, but a guitar instead. Check it out, it worth the trip. Craig

    Bill's Old Bike Barn

    Wife and I took a ride up to Bloomsburg PA to visit Bill's Old Bike Barn. If you haven't gone there yet, it is a must see. Reminds me of the motorcycle museum in Maggie Valley, only much more diverse. Saw the "kettenrad," a 1/2 track motorcycle - developed in Germany and used in WWII. It is still operational. What a sight! It is easy to get to. About 1/2 mile east of I-80 along rt. 11 North. Plus what a great day for a ride!
  16. What fun plans do you have for the weekend? We will be missing Pork n the Pines, but for a good reason. We normally do a lot of riding with our 3 sons, but this summer has been so busy we haven't gotten to at all, so..... We are all heading east of the river (Mighty Mississipi) to the Kickapoo area to hit the following: Vernon Vineyards Bad Axe area Rockton (famous bbq chicken) Wild Cat Mountain State Park Bull's Den Bar (crazy barn out in the middle of nowhere turned into a fun bar Cheese Curds !!!! and staying at Soldiers Grove, WI at a place that has the best Bourbon Pork Tenders and generally riding back roads! Can't wait!!! So what are you doing?
