Re: second spare wheel for front with disc brakes

Wondering what another spare in front of the car would do to the center of gravity? I've run without any spare for some time, and for whatever reason, got bored and put it back on this spring. Went for a ride, and found it to be a bit squirrelly in the corners. Then again, I didn't take the time to ...

Re: Paronite Gaskets getting me down.

My vote is for the urban dictionary's definition ... kac KellyAnn Conway, the sound a cat makes while throwing up a fur ball. A most explicit fraud and liar or alternate truth teller, bullshit artist, etc. PS - I'd also think the inclusion of asbestos fibers in the mix for the shuttle's o-rings woul...

Re: Terrified

I gotta get me some training one of these daze. Still more or less making it up as I go along.

On the bright side, the scary moments are getting farther apart as time goes on. Heck, I can go full minutes at a time now without almost killing myself ... again ... ;-}

Re: Terrified

Anyone have a home remedy to that major tool setup? Video is fine for showing the idea but to buy that for a couple adjustment and never use it again? Not a good answer. I used an old full size bed frame to check the toe on the car. Nice cast iron rails long enough to do the job anyway. Close enoug...

Re: Terrified

I think we all have some minor deity looking out for us the first few times we hit the road. Less than fond memories of my virgin voyage, hitting the brakes and trying to steer into a gas station, almost doing a head on with a car trying to pull out as the rig (couldn't be me, right?) over corrected...

Re: Short sidecar windshield

Could shorten the stock shield? I'm told you can cut the bottom with a small kerf jig saw. Maybe someone who's actually done it can chime in here. I'd be interested in bobbing mine as well.

That LED headlight could probably burn holes in a 2x4 at 100 yards, eh.

Re: How Many Lights are Enough?

Be prepared, and always carry a big a$$ chain saw just in case, right? <G> So, where do we all stand on headlight modulators? Where they're legal anyway. Been using one on all my bikes for years now. Hard to beat if you're looking to grab somebody's attention. One thing I did find out though. The mo...

Best lights I ever had were an old pair of SEV Marchals ... not super bright, but the light pattern was perfect.
