When was the last time you had to sync the carb on your Hog? How are your hemorroids?

By the way how are your riding skills, still slaming the rear brake? I knew that!

There's two parking lots at the Poser bar. One is for Harleys and the other is for bright green Ninjas...



(ouch! see, that's what it feels like)

Now add shaft drive. A very overlooked bike is the Suzuki Intruder 1400. I don't have one but... Here you have a proven motor, no valve adjustments, no chain, no belt, no oil leaks. And for Harley chump change you can uncork it and the bike will fly. The bike has 2 probs., 3.4 gallon tank and an ugly seat. For about 2 grand you can transform this bike into a winner. P/U a 2 yr. old one do the mods and you have a proven winner with about the smallerst maint. of any bike and it performs. I needed a little more power so the max for me.

Still admire the VS1400.

What about handling? I agree that the street is not the place to test the race track ability of a bike, but I'll be damned if I ever saw a Harley and thought to myself "wow, I bet that bike can take a corner". In fact, I bet a Toyota Camry can outcorner nearly any Harley.

Does Moto Guzzi count for simplicity?



I didn't think that tele-parlever suspended shaft drive hydraulic assisted linked anti-lock braking systems on motorcycles were simple. I wonder why they come with the 3 year road side assistance warranty?



How often do you need to do a valve job in the African desert? Just curious...

Default Snow Hog

Rest assured that HelterSkelter (how appropriate) claims he rides his bikes 20,000 miles a year. Living in Milwaukee he has mastered the technque of Snow Hogging. Using special spiked tires from the Screaming Polar Bear H-D line, HeleterSkelter can ride anytime and anywhere. Special heated arm and leg chaps complete the ensemble.
