Like so many other things

It is very possible to get good poutine outside of Quebec-or even Canada, for that matter. Down here in the desert, there is a restaurant that does a damned good poutine-and I've had it in Vancouver,...

Heartfelt thanks

Anna, your ride report is beautiful in so many ways. It is the first complete ride report I read through, and I've spent the past week doing so in installments. You have a magical spirit and I am...

Damnably cool bikes

My father has a '55 Bullet Solo. I'd love a new one set up scrambler style.

I'm looking at a solid running '85 XR600, and reading this thread today made me want the bike even more.

Pre-HD zombie phase

Great stuff. Nice to see evidence that HD was once an actual motorcycle company rather than a marketing gimmick pusher. Kid Rock Model, anyone? :puke1

Suzuki GS1000GL question

Does anyone know whether the fuel tank and tail section of the GS1000GL can be swapped out and replaced with the tank and tail from a GS1000G?

Thanks in advance.

Great thought

The VT500 Ascot is a GREAT bike!!!

Possibly a Suzuki VX800 as well?

Goose, Goose ... Duck?

Probably a bit too pricey and perhaps a tad less reliable than some, but an early '80's Ducati Darmah is a fabulous machine.

Fantastic, Greg. I shall look into GPz cams. As for pistons, I only ever used Wiseco in other bikes, so no thoughts of going cheap now. Cheers!

Greg, this is great info. Thank you very much. I am leaning toward a 1075 with well sorted carbs and some sort of 4-1 (though the muffler will most likely have to be slightly rerouted). I figure,...

No pics yet?

It sounds like a monstrosity, and I wonder why you want rearsets on it, but three months on and no pics ... :(:

Cheers, Nanno! No offense whatsoever. Great to hear from you. Not sure how I can pre-test sidebags, but there definitely seem to be mixed reviews on the Givis. Since I live in AZ, it is a bit less of...

I'm having a lot of fun with this. I have just discovered that Mr. Turbo still makes KZ1000 kits. The mild kit nets 140 rwhp on a KZ1000 motor. The exhaust would have to be finished right to work,...

I think once it has a bit more motor, that would be in order. With an 1197 motor with proper intake and exhaust, and the right cams, I think three teeth down would be good going.

KZ1000P Touring Conversion

Hey gang. I've been browsing the threads and see that a few guys have at least thought about using a Kawasaki police bike for a touring mount. I'm looking at this as a fun and ongoing project. Here...
