Anybody got a shock preload adjuster tool for a 2012 Harley Streetbob? Or can I just use a rubber strap wrench?

I havent seen the bike in person yet but I know it has the multiple round holes on the bottom of the preload cam.

bike show dickery

Ok, having been through the show, there are a lot of great bikes out there. It does seem that the show is getting smaller every year. But I have realized a few things about the new metal and myself. I still have a preference for late 90s to the early 2000's. I would fucking love to kick around on a new zx10R. I really like the new look of the Kawi line and the more bikes I ride, the more I feel like keeping with team green. The amount of power and performance available is staggering. I honestly do not have the skill to really ride these things to the degree I wish I could. The RC8R has been a desire since I saw the first concepts many years ago. But the only bike I would really put my hard earned down on would be the KTM 690 SE. Being a bit of a novice in the dirt, I would want a lighter bike. I know that something like a Tiger 800 would pretty much be all I would need except for really commited riding. But the price of new bikes could be several used bikes and the cash to customize.
Thoughts. In keeping with many of the cheaper options out there I would rather have the right tool for the job, rather than a swiss army knife.
Thoughts?

Yes, with pretty much all of the current models. No 1190 though, which a couple of the orange guys said won't be coming in until 1/14 or so. As always, ymmv depending on who you speak to

Which means, unlike my modern 2012 DR, old unchanged KTM models with bold new graphics !

Modern? Did you find and use a time machine and are writing this from the early 70's?

Come on, don't be so dramatic. A modern DR is 1980's technology!

Yes, but air cooled, SOHC, single shock was "proven", hardly modern, in the 80's. In the 70's the technology would have been modern.

The Bikes, the woman....

You know, the bikes all start to look the same after a while, even the customs. However, this year, on Saturday, there were so many interesting people to watch, and there WERE some beautiful woman around, both as professional models for the booths, as well as the woman wandering around the Expo center.

But you are certainly right that the most beautiful woman were at the Ducati booth:

The Artist...

Also, David Uhl (www.uhlstudios.com) was there painting one of his works. Very talented guy. He's done some really neat stuff, including a portrait of Steven Tyler's daughter:



Here he is working at the show:



His wife and one of his models were there as well, and are both spectacular.

Greetings from Madrid.

One of my favorite parts of traveling are the bikes i get to see! Will try to post some pics. They have figured out how to eat 5 times a day and take a mid afternoon nap, but no long on high speed internet it seems.
