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

I rode mine to town to check on a yard I mow and pick up the mail. I was having such a good time riding around and talking a friend into buying a Dax Friction Drive, I forgot the time, and my wife said she was starting to worry about me by the time I got home.

Got an email that my Kip-Layback post is on its way, Woo! Now I gotta hurry up and wait!



Pic borrowed from the order thread: Over here

I'm hoping to make the race, if I can get my passport in order. Fingers crossed!

Lol Happy!

For comfort, worst place is over the rear axle, or even close to it.
You get every bit of hop the axle sees that can not be diminished by your seat springs.

With a tall seatpost, you get amplified hop, AND a forward/backward jolt along with a horrid cg.

Probably best place for seating is near as possible to axle height, midway between the axles.

I think the recumbent guys figured it out.
I never tried one.
Perhaps I should!

Best

do you know how crazy that would look with a motor on it ? !! absolutly sick! llllow an sssllllow.

I've been too busy to ride for nearly a week. Now I'm back...

Put a new carb on my bike 3 days ago. I'm on my 3rd carb since Sep 2010. No joke, Huashang carbs are super sensitive.
Last time I replaced my carb my bike started right up after cussing at it for weeks. No exception this time.
Spose I'm back in action. Tuning her up is the order of the day
