Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I put on my hub adapter from sportsman flyers it is awesome the whole drive train is smooter and less chain noise. Also the cruise rpm is way better not as much throttle to cruise so better gas milage time to clean it tonight to get ready for death race. Will post pics later

Another valve stem failure for me. 5th this year. I'm bout ready to silicone my tire on the rim so the darn thing doesn't rotate on the rim. Doubled tires, thornproof tube, liner, 75 psi. Tire still rotates on the rim and ends up cutting valve stem. Gah. Bout to double up tubes, too.

Actually, the Greyhound itself never came up in the conversation. We were watching hockey (go Sharks!) and laughing at Kobe's latest controversy while wrenching on a new 2-stroke build and sucking down Shock Top.

Speaking of loose lips, you got a bit of Mick Jagger going on with his head out a window at 65. Add a couple riffs and you might have yourself a hit!

If you like Belgian-style ales, check out Pranqster from North Coast Brewing. . . that stuff is AWESOME and 7.6% ABV to boot.

Talking of Belgian brews: whenever I have about $20 laying around, and the bills are paid (which shows you how often this happens) I pick up a four-pack of Gülden Draak. Not only are we talking 10.5 APV, it tastes so good you won't really care that your brain's going numb. Fantastic stuff. And our nine year anniversary is coming up, so that's a good enough excuse for me...

Really don't meant to hijack this thread, but is there anything that's not kick@ about this community? Great taste in beers and awesome hobby? Man, why didn't I find this sooner.

Talking Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

modified an industrial door hinge to make a stronger front motor mount. I shattered the originals my first week. with a 20" rear wheel I've learned you have to slow down a bit to crank it. i'll probably go to a 36 tooth sprocket to correct the ratio but i will miss my quick take-offs! I'm using the original 44 tooth right now. will be uploading pics soon!
