since there's some knowledgable folks, had a question - how are talon hubs set up? is it a more or less generic set that has different spacers inside for different axle sizes? Or are they actually machined different for the application? I know you can make spacers to fit a smaller diameter axle, but could I say use my talon hub in my xr400 with a bigger axle...?

thanks

Yer both right. The King was pissed cause I wouldn't let him take her for a spin.

At this moment, a certain Scorpion is riding her to the auto parts store to get plugs for his 990. The CB not the snake.

I actually spoke to the guys who make this bike at Sturgis last year of all places. They started out making them asa contract to some branch of the armed forces (the marines?) and haven't been able to mass produce them because of that, but he said that contract is almost up so it won't be long now before we see them on the market. The price tag though, is anything but a selling point

this is one of the BIG reasons I got my KLR was to drop in one of those diesel motors and make it biodiesel.
not gonna happen.

and make a gutless bike even more gutless.

Honda Davidson Las Vegas to LA RR

I rented a Harley Davidson to ride back from Las Vegas for some peace and quite after a long weekend with the wifes friends.
This particular Harley Davidson model was called the Honda shadow
I'm not really a cruiser fan but for 4 hours of interstate in 100+ degree weather it was fairly pleasant.
The riding position was odd because the foot pegs where way out front so all my weight was entirely on the seat all the time, so you steer from your ass. It was like riding on a lazy boy but I had to lean forward the whole time.

On a long straight down hill (On a closed course of course) I decided to see how fast it would go after a few mins at 95 I realized that was all she had

I got in an hour before the girls even after leaving an hour later, thank you lane splitting



I'm sure a real Harley would have to be better but this was a nice and mild way to get back to LA and if ever there was a good time to have a cruiser, a ride between LV and LA would be it.

I'm not a convert but I did have a good time.
