And today I got my 93 almost strung to the rafters to finally change out the triple clamp

Go pro is already on the bike, should be fun. One of the guys in our group just got a new Aprilia RSV4, we'll need to keep him on suicide watch on the 1st....


Waiting on test ride results fromyou too.

Slowly getting there, unfortunately reality has gotten in the way a bit. But still moving forward:





Trying to decide if I should get the forks redone now, while they're off and be out of commission for 3 weeks or so. It's a tough call, I want to ride the damn thing. I'm leaning towards getting them done now so the summer can be wrench free. Well, relatively wrench free

Re: What have you done to/for your bike today?

Well I popped the pistons out and gave the brakes a good cleaning.
It's amazing, they actually work like they should now!?! It went from mild 1 finger braking to 2 finger mild braking.
No more dragging though.

I still have yet to get used to using two fingers, they loosened up a good bit....

Tell you what though; new tires, rebuilt forks, and working brakes, etc., it's like I bought a brand new bike!!

Re: What have you done to/for your bike today?

I looked in the box of all the smog/useless **** I took off the 1000 and had my self a laugh!
Also recently installed glpro gear position indicator and removed the baffel out of my sbk can. Also got zbomb working correctly and adjusted my fuel map accordingly. I think it's dyno time now!

Re: What have you done to/for your bike today?

I was lucky enough to score a genuine Honda solo tail cover here, so I painted it to match and added it to the bike today.

Re: What have you done to/for your bike today?

Several days in a row I been putting my 79 wing back together. Getting a little excited as I get closer to her first start-up in at least 5 years.

Re: What have you done to/for your bike today?

Bike arrived today from San Diego.
Now I need to change the plug boots, wires, check cam clearance, synch carbs and then prep for Hawaii safety inspection.

Gave her a hug and wipe down... then hopped on my Shadow for a cruise =) Checked the spark plugs in the Shadow, cleaned them up a touch, and rode some more.
