I always wonder how the side stand smoking issue never got caught during testing. Maybe it did and they just had to release the bike and address it later.

And why did they put the crank on the right and the head on the left ? When swapping them 180 would have fixed those problems, among other things.

I'm guessing, when testing, nobody ever had to actually use that stupid helmet lock.

It is somewhat surprising that it took them several years to deal with the smoky rings issue. Then again, it doesn't really hurt anything - other than mosquitoes.

Last weekend



It was wet in Hendersonville, NC at the antique bike show. I love riding the RS; but I could have really used the fairing on my RT.

Where my son was born, Boone, NC


This is the house I lived in when my son was born. This is his bike that I rode to the Old School Rally last weekend.
