    I have touched a whitetail's tail once while on a Ninja... I haven't ridden or even touched the new Africa Twin,it has much more power than the old one. Here you can get ten old ones for the price of one new, I"m on my second old one now. Enjoy...

    Thank you Finster, I think I'll let professionals take a look inside and then decide between A) a new pump and a hydraulic tensioner system or B) get rid of chains altogether and go with sprockets and new cams etc... Peace of mind

    Very interesting , thanks for sharing! World economy (and brand popularity) are so very strange things, where I live 20+ year old 60+ k miles touring Harleys run @ 10 k USD and up. But you can find 30 k miles Ninjas & Africa Twins for 1500. ...

    I'm at three now. A RK, a Ninja and a -95 Africa Twin, low prices,low insurance costs. Lots of fun in the woods. Good sports! I'm still not sure whether I NEED a cruiser at all but time will tell. I may not be old enough yet. (spell "grown up") ...

    Yes it is. My second one, the original 2000 with full power :) . Talking about ZX:s, I have had two ZX-9R:s (-98 and -03)and an old (-89) ZX-10,too. Adjusting to a Road King after all the Ninjas is... interesting.

    That's correct. :) . Thanks - I do prefer leather track-style suits but now still being cold weather with possible rain ... modern stuff is just very good.

    I just got another mail from Shine Armor. Must be spam #100 or so. They have actually shipped my order now,I paid for it three weeks ago. Three weeks of continuous email bombing.

    I find books like this one essential for survival. Especially when you have a long snowy winter with lots of car driving. Driving really messes up the motorcycle reflexes.

    My riding has been 95% crotch rockets 5% dirt for decades. I had a 10+ years break,luckily saw the light again and got my first Harley just last summer. It was a difficult adjustment, basically a state of mind -thing. I thought I'll sell it but...

    http://www.therideadvice.com/how-motorcycle-riding-is-good-for-you/ I had a ten years break in riding,too. All kinds of stupid excuses. Started again @ 55 and now @ 57 I feel I have it back. For good.

    Can you get a Carfax report with VIN code? Sometimes too low mileage is just that,too low to be true. I once found my car had a clone twin in Canada.

    Sounds like my reasoning to buy a nice Chevy Van last year. I also have a 4Runner,an old but fine working one. Never had a Van before. So I bought it. The 2WD Van ended up being useless all winter,I really hated looking at the poor car under all...
