Since Walter cancled his ride today I took one in another direction. Rusty Palmer in Honesdale PA is having an open house this weekend. 20% off parts and accesories, some demo rides and a Stunt show. Bill Dixon put on a great little stunt show riding all different types of bikes.
He rode a scooter, WR250, Vmax, Bolt, R6, and even a Tenere.
For those interested the Open house continues Saturday and Sunday

It DOES Doc...if you believe in that sorta thing. :)

Geared....love the Tenere's burnout right to kickstand down.

DR is back together, test ridden and the most I've ever done to a bike: suspension, exhaust, carb....I actually didn't think it was going to run. But it did, strong...amazing:




Frank--I built this bike with most of the same decisions you made. Many thanks for the help--and, I siliconed adhesived those plugs.

It feels great.

Thanks... yeah, I have to say, when it came to the tank, it HAD to have the Acerbis just because of that--AND...well the screens for bikes--there is no alternative-but I would have bought it anyway just to complete the cloning effect.

The .60 spring rate--loving the way the front end feels...but the best change so far is the lower pegs and the higher bars with the HDB riser--very roomy now...and the dash, yum:

Super slick Bill !
Clicked over 10k miles on mine in just a pinch over a year. She's been over the Cascade Range, ridden across California's Central Valley, Appalachia mountains to the northern reaches of New England. Not a lick of trouble. One of the most versatile bikes I have owned.
Nice job on that cockpit !

MoBill,

You do such nice work setting up a motorcycle that perhaps I should put you in charge of my newest project. I found the poor thing hiding away in CT and I just had to go rescue it. No, I have no idea what I'm going to do with it.

I'm a one trick pony Loph...top clamp and powerlets--tank bag with SAE power---that's it. Maybe a windscreen for that.



Thanks Frank--already dealt with punch list item number one---misrouted the heated grip power and it rubbed thru in 5 miles.

What else---need to retest the security of the vapor speedo pick up wiring--the loop should be at the top by the brake line...all good though.

Aren't two 950s kind of excessive?



Congrats!

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Why need two 950 SuperEnduros? One for parts? I thought all you had to do was fix the radiator on the one you smashed into the tree with in the Pine Barrens. Did you finish the origional bike off in Canada?

Yikes
If this picture doesn't say "New Joisey" I don't know what does.



Although I do like the belly button jewelry I must admit............

Back to motorcycles....

For those of you who have a motorcycle "Bucket List", here's a road you should add. It is a close to a Swiss/Italian mountain pass as you get in the US on asphalt. I think it is as interesting as Deal's Gap, without the crazy motorcyclists! Flagstaff to Sedona on 89A.

Here's what it looks like:

Stop it Doc you're making me homesick, there really aren't many things I miss from my previous life, except having roads like this a days ride from home.

The Furka Pass, Swiss Alps, you can see the thin ribbon of tarmac winding above the bike. Spot the ADV sticker


The view from above

You are right. Nothing like the mountain passes into and out of Switzerland. Did the Furka Pass with the wife on the back of a Harley. Scariest ride of our lives. On the cliff side, no guard rails, just those little concrete posts every few hundred yards. And the buses would come around the corner, leaving no room! And the cows grazing on the hills, with two legs longer then the others so they could stand straight!
