Re: What's worse?

Wreaked the 2013 (I survived, three days in critical care....a successful landing)! Bought a 2015, wasn't going to ride a motorcycle again!, but gezz! It wanted to go home with me! If I destroy this machine (and have a successful landing), I'll call Gene and put another on order; it should be in cou...

Re: Dragon Capsule Splashdown and Oil Platforms

Changes of a space craft hitting a oil platform? A zillion to one! (actually about a KaZillion to one!) Chances of emergency vehicle/aircraft, aerospace vehicle? Extremely good! I remember the very early American space missions: a freaking air craft carrier in the Pacific! (and the capsules were sta...

Re: Banned weapons

Oh my God, It's a full automatic assault knife! They only built it to smuggle in carry- on baggage at airports! We need to pass more laws! Think of the children! It's the NRA's fault!

"Giant dog bed', our dog would love it, however, I'm pretty sure my wife would not appreciate it.

Re: Look under that mat in your sidecar...

Way a head of ya. When both machines were new I properly applied truck bed liner paint (or what ever it is!) to the sidecar interior up about two inches, same in the trunk. I'm getting very proficient at pulling up the front and truck mats after rain. Ya know the trunk lid isn't water tight?

Re: Monitoring the Wear of the Clutch Disk Teeth

Comrade windmill,
Does the hyper lube take care of the 'karchunk' during shifting or generally lowers gearbox noise?

Re: Monitoring the Wear of the Clutch Disk Teeth

Had the splines on one clutch set stripped out at 55,000 km, but I was able to limp it home. Put it on the trailer, took to Holowpaw. Thank Dog It wasn't a Harley.

Re: Pad for dogs

We have a small dog. 2.5 kilo. She rides in a harness on my wife's lap. Sometimes I'll ride around with just the dog in the sidecar seat. Make sure the dog is tied down with a good harness and straps; even small dogs think they're in an urban squirrel attack vehicle; they don't understand speed and ...

Re: Steering Damper

I'm a late comer to this dampener thread. I've got a 2015 Ranger, bought new, now have 62,000 km on machine. Dampener never worked. I live with it. It's not a Harley tank slapper or 'death wobble'. I just remember that at real low speeds, going over rail road tracks, pay attention.

Re: Where to find tires

I've been getting the Duro's from Amazon for years 65 USD shipping included). Now have 62,000 on the machine. Average wear is 6k for drive, 48k for front, and still using original sidecar tire. Most of my driving is on asphalt.
