  1. Anybody ever drop one of these bad boys? I've dropped mine twice and was unable to pick it up myself either time. No damage done, fell over on the bars, but still a bit embarassing. Once on a gravel driveway(turned into newly resurfaced drive) and once in my driveway. I have a 1988 Venture Royale, not sure if it makes a difference. Anybody out there have any tricks or the secret to getting this thing back up when you're alone? Thanks Ed
  2. On my Triumph, the gas filler cap is parallel to the ground so I can put a level on it to see if the bike itself is level. But is there anywhere on an RSV that I can put a level to check if the bike is level? Neither my garage floor nor my driveway are level - and by different amounts too. Andy
  3. I just found out about the $5 penalty for dropping my VR. I did post a reply in that thread but figured I should 'fess up out in the open. Day 1 with my first VR. I figure some practice time in the yard and driveway is in order. Although I've been riding 30 years I have never had bikes this long or this heavy. Circles and 8's in the yard are actually feeling shaky so I start big and shorten the radius as I felt better. I then head up the driveway and turn around by the side of the road. I can't believe the bike is slowly falling to the right and I really can't believe that I can't stop it. It
  4. Yesterday as I left work, I looked to the east where home is & saw very dark clouds. I thought, "Guess I'll be in quite the downpour by the time I get home." I also noticed it was quite cold. (My Gerbing's heated gloves are a joy.) So, as I reach the plateau (where I live), it's hailing. No big deal. Well, about a half-mile ahead it decides to dump with an accumulation of about a half-inch. Whoa! Tires a-slippin' & a slidin'. I'm down to a crawl between 5-10 mph, as are all the cagers. OK, I'm thinking I should just pull into the high school parking lot & park, call my wife at home
  5. husband forgets anniversary illegul > 10/10 21:28:52 Bob was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was really pissed. She told him "Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in 6 seconds AND IT BETTER BE THERE !!" The next morning he got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up, she looked out the window and sure enough there was a box gift-wrapped in the middle of the driveway. Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, brought the box back in the house. She opened it and found
  6. A bit of a surprise for me,,, I couldn't believe what rolled into and then out of my driveway,,, it took me a minute,,,ya
  7. Michigan - God's Country Aug 12 - Moved to Michigan. It is so beautiful here. The hills are so serene and beautiful. Can hardly wait to see snow cover them. God's country...I love it here. Oct 14 - Michigan is the most beautiful place. The leaves are turning all different colors, I love the shades of red and orange. I went for a ride through the beautiful country side and spotted some deer, they are so graceful certainly they are the most peaceful animals on earth. This must be paradise Michigan, I love it here. Nov 11 - Deer season will start soon. I can't imagine anyone wanting to k
  8. My driveway has a slight curb on it and is slightly uphill going into the drive. I've noticed that when I pull into my driveway and come up the slight curb, the front end feels like it is wobbling. So, when I got into the garage I planted both feet on the floor and shook the front end and it "wobbled." Never noticed this before. It rides and handles good. is this normal? Glenn
  9. The Monkey Boy in Conroe Texas has left the tree and is on his way to a hot date. Boomer.....who sez I hope he does something about that banana breath before he pulls into her driveway.
  10. I happened across this on Craigslist. http://detroit.craigslist.org/mcb/mcy/1651149236.html Would you pay $185 for an oil change if it was done in your driveway? I wonder if they'd double the price for a V-four.
  11. With 700' of driveway, I was luvin' this machine today.
  12. I'm sooo bummed. Was leaving for work this morning and for some idiotic reason decided to try a slow tight circle turn in my driveway. Wound up three quarters of the way through the turn and knew I couldn't stay on the driveway. I stopped, but was facing downhill. Tried to duck walk the bike across a corner of the driveway and lost my balance on the sloping soft gravel ground. Bike fell to the downhill side. Took me two hours to get it upright with a winch and back onto the blacktop driveway. Major gravel rash on the left side of the front faring. Then had to bleed the clutch because i
  13. I know most everybody knows this but saw this the other night and reminded me of tomorrow. I'll be deep frying ours but it will be in the driveway. If you should catch the oil on fire DON'T use water..... http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/mythbusters-water-and-oil.html http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/mythbusters-fanning-the-grease-fire-flames.html http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/mythbusters-small-scale-disaster.html http://dsc.discovery.com/videos/time-warp-grease-fire-close-up.html
  14. My new RSV has been sitting in the garage for 3 weeks since I bought it waiting for me to finish a huge work project and today is the day!!! It is going to be an awesome day here in Western NY and she is idling in the driveway right now. Its 44 degrees currently and it will only get warmer. WAHOO!!!! See ya on the flip side!
  15. I pulled in to the driveway Friday and felt the rear end wobble and within 50-75 feet I could tell I was getting a flat and stopped and checked to find the rear tire was flat. It's a new Dunlop Elite 3 with maybe 500 miles on it. I walked the mile down the driveway and got my portable air tank and went to the tire store and aired it up. Got my wife to follow me down the driveway and that was a good move. When I aired it up I could hear a big leak and felt around with my hand and found a nice stream of air in the center of the tread. I was only able to go about 1 minute before I could fee
  16. While we were camping up at Mohican State Forest area by Loudonville Ohio last weekend, the wife and I went out for a quick 1 hour ride Saturday morning. Went into town, filled the tank and went to return to camp. Was going to take a different route and missed the turn so we went further to find a driveway to turn around in. Car behind us was a little close, so I turned into an unfamiliar driveway a little too quick and hit the brakes, just happened to get along the edge of the asphalt and gravel, hit a little loop in the asphalt, off camber to the right dropping away. Went to put the foot dow
  17. A panoramic view of our place Christmas morning 2008 (created with 7 individual pics) http://i393.photobucket.com/albums/pp16/SilvrT/ChristmasMorningPanoramic.jpg Now, as soon as I get all that snow shovelled off the driveway, out comes the scoot as we'll be heading out for a wonderful day ride.... (in our dreams!)
  18. Sometimes when I go up a driveway I get a bang in the front forks, air pressure is at 14 lbs. Does anyone else get this??
  19. ... my god. has anyone tackled this one. I don't even wanna go there without about 30 digital pictures along the way. hell, i could've just been a neurosurgeon or something. seriously, i would appreciate any tips or advise. the only other engine guard i've replace was on a silverado 1100 and i did it in the driveway without even letting the wife know i had a crash. this thing is INTEGRATED with hoses, wires, moldings, etc, etc, etc... unbelievable. I guess that'll teach me to lay it down huh!!!!
  20. there is a rubber formed line with a braided appearance that seems to go from the rear master cylinder, it has two clamps, one at each end, it is about 5 inches long, .... mine blew ahole in it today and smoked like crazy, I was just pulling in the driveway when it went, getting the bike ready for ride for Dad charity run tomorrow, but I guess that is not gonna happen now. can you tell me what this hose doies and if I can ride with out it , and how do I get a new on e.... thanks gord

    My great escape

    Ok, so I'm overdoing it just a bit ... got the bike all ready for the road - new rubber, new tail light bulb, put all the new "safety" accessories on her (mud-flaps from Timberwolfe Leather, new grips, some "shiny" floor board covers for the front, floorboards for the rear, engine bolt cover, oil cap, etc.). She looked go nice out on the driveway that I couldn't stand it and off I went ... didn't go far, only about a 50 km loop, but man, did it feel good!!! Now, I'm just waiting for the new CB antenna and the trunk wing light to come in and that will be it ... (yeah ... right!!! ) Che
  22. I think we ended up with about 20" of snow. It's a real mess right now. I did manage to get to the store this morning in the wife's SUV but there is no way that I'm getting out in my company Caravan. My brother in law came over yesterday and when he came in he told me that I was snowed in and no way would I get out. He said that I had about 3' deep ruts in the driveway. He was wrong, he made about 3' deep ruts in the YARD because he MISSED the driveway. I will have a lot of work to do when it warms up and dries up enough to do repairs. Hope it melts off soon.....I HAVE to get out of h
  23. These trucks are for people who like chrome. Shari is really scared now.She saw my eyes light up when I saw these. She figures to see one in our driveway hopefully by the end of the year..:cool10:
  24. Just starting to rain this morning as I pull out of the garage. Previous owner put a darned slippery slurry coat on the driveway (hate it). I get to the end of the driveway & slow down because an SUV is coming down the hill & around the bend to my left. Tires slip & as the SUV goes by I feel it starting to fall to the right, so I figure I might as well exit the driveway to the right, down the hill. Couldn't save it. Laid it down gently, tried a couple times to lift it, but the darned driveway is too slick to keep my boots from slipping. Went & enlisted my wife to help me lift i
  25. Have removed the coolant bypass valve by removing the phillips screw on the side. When I pulled the valve out, I dropped it so I'm not sure if I lost any parts. There is a small spring for the a/m screw. Any other loose parts that might be lying on the driveway somewhere that I need to look for? This is from an '87. Could use a quick response. Thanks
