Monday’s Motorcycle: Victory Vegas 8-Ball

America’s Other V-Twin Motorcycles… VICTORY.  All Victory bikes are clean, slick and smooth with lots of power on tap.  High build quality without the Harley Baggage.  I really like the Victory line… and my favorite, is the Vegas, Baby!  The 8 Ball is the one I love the most because it captures what the Vegas […]

Well, the new chain for my motorcycle arrived.  Holy cow…. The Gold Chain is a hell of a lot of BLING for me.  What was I thinking?  Oh well.  We’ll put it on and see how it looks after 10,000 miles. The new brake lever I ordered was silver.  The one that arrived though… Black. […]

Might have a new bike…

Might have a new bike…

Made a handshake deal on a Honda Superhawk.  A big v-twin sportbike. Should be a good bike for me. I couldn’t lock down the other bikes I wanted.    We will see how this plays out though.

I need a fairing

My Honda Magna has a windscreen that looks like a police riot shield.  I took it off and blasted up the highway… and it’s not good without some wind protection.  I need something a lot smaller, something streamlined a bit…   Maybe something like this: I like the nice sleak bullet shape it gives the front […]

Rattle? What?

Rattle?  What?

The bike has been purring along since I got it. This morning, on the way in to work, it all the sudden started a bad rattle. At idle, in neutral, there is no rattle. In gear, when rolling, it rattles. Bad. WTF? I really don’t need this right now. I mean, COME ON!

I took a bike home with me.

I took a bike home with me.

I snagged a bike that I saw.  The other bike had carb tuning issues I decided I didn’t want to get into, so I brought home a different one… One that runs FLAWLESSLY.  Purrs like a kitten at idle, screams like a beast when I open the throttle.

So I put some guns up on KSL for trade for a Motorcycle.   I get some responses for parts bikes… nothing that runs.   Then I get an offer that’s just crazy good for a 2004 HD Softail.  Dude sends pictures and everything.   Oh hell yes.  The guy wants it out of his garage.  I say […]
