Bob, please share with us about your new toy. I have a question: Why is the back fender so high off the tire on the Ducati?


Looking forward to hearing more about everyone'e bikes here.
How they ride
Special Features
Wrenching (I want to wrench my own.)
Etc...

Spadoman: I agree with having at least 4 bikes, and for most of the exact same reasons you mentioned.

Bob: Thanks for the post. It was really hysterical!(and true).

Seeme-Yahooo g/f! (Doin' a jig)

Doc, thanks!
Fires got over 4,000 acres, however all homes and people are ok. That's all I have heard this morning.

Please see my thread which doc posted for me yesterday on the message board called: Fires in CA.

This pic was one I found for a Virago. They didn't have my year when I did a go*gle and ebay search, however Viragos haven't changed much at all in looks over several years.

I am so excited I can hardly wait!
Finally, a bike of my own to ride.

Varoooom Baby!

hi DD

your bike wiil be there be for you know it if he is bran new follow manufacture breakin when i got my bike they told mr for the first 50 miles to vary the rpms. up and down every couple of miles
when you ride, ride at your comfort level not at someone eles level

copied from internet

The 20 commandments of motorcycle wisdom


1. Every ride is optional. Every parking job is mandatory.

2. If you push the bars left, the bike goes left. If you push the bars right, the bike goes right. That is, unless you continue pushing the bars all the way, then the bike will go down.

3. Riding isn't dangerous. Crashing is dangerous.

4. It's always better to be on the sidelines wishing you were on the track than on the track wishing you were on the sidelines.

5. The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.

6. The rear wheel is just a big fan on back of the bike used to keep the rider cool and his/her bu-tt relaxed. If going into a corner too fast, slamming on the rear brake causes the "fan" to abruptly stop. When this happens you can actually see the rider start sweating and his/her bu-tt become tense.

7. When in doubt, slow down. No one has ever hit something too slow.

8. A 'good' ride is one from which you can walk away. A 'great' ride is one after which you can use the bike again.

9. Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make all of them yourself.

10. You know you've left the sidestand down when all left turn are Bat-turns. You know you've left the centerstand down when your in 1st gear at 4000 rpm going nowhere.

11. Never let a motorcycle take you somewhere your brain didn't get to three seconds earlier.

12. Always try to keep the number of times you put your sidestand down equal to the number of times you put the sidestand up.

13. There are two simple rules for riding smoothly and fast in snow and on ice. Unfortunately no one knows what they are.

14. You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

15. If all you can see in your mirrors is sparks and all you can hear is screaming from your passenger, things may not be as they should be.

16. In the ongoing battle between objects made of metal, rubber and fiberglass going 100+ miles per hour and the ground going zero miles per hour, the ground has yet to lose. Same holds for cars, large trucks, and animals taller than you. Draws don't count.

17. Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, the experience usually comes from bad judgment.

18. Keep looking around. There's always something you've missed.

19. Remember, gravity and centrifical force are not just a good ideas. They're laws and are not subject to appeal.

20. The two most useless things to a rider are the braking distance behind you and nine-tenth of a second ago.

I sure like my 2004 Dyna Super Glide Sport
If I had the money, I'd have at least four bikes. I'd keep my Dyna for my boulecard cruiser, Then I'd get a BMW 1220GS for the on/off road trips across the country. I'd have to have a regular dirt machine like a KTM and lastly, a big full dress Road King for the comfy trips when they come up.
