Don't you keep a lot of Loctite on hand for yer Trumpet?



Triumph should offer a Bonneville Nostalgia Special. It would come with all the nuts and bolts safetywired and a color matched drip pan to put under the engine. The speedo should say you are going 20% faster than you actually are (when it's working at all).



A nice touch would be special tickling valves so you can spill gas all over your engine. Though for safety reasons the bike could come with pre-discolored engine cases under the faux-Amal monoblocs instead.



I'm still looking forward to (hopefully) picking up a Speed Triple this year. I'd better lay in a supply of Loctite and spare pistons right now.

Hey, you live in Sandy Eggo?



I just got a job there. I start monday, so I'm moving this weekend.



Sadly, there's no time to arrange for motorcycle transport, since I'm just moving in my car, so at some point I'm going to have to fly back and ride the bike out. Darn.



If I weren't waiting for parts for my bike for the Road Star transmission recall, I might just ship all of my crap UPS and ride just the bike out. That'd be a good way to limit the amount of schmutz I bring with me.



Well, so hey. We should meet up some time, and you can intro me to all the other SD MOrons.

I've made plenty of references to the Burger Barn during your tenure here.



It's about the types who show up with a tankbag full of statistics from the latest motomags to prove their rice burner is better than anything on the planet.



I can't remember the name but doesn't LA or Orange county have a burger joint where squids gather on Wednesday nights?

Speed Triples kick butt, that and the Thunderbird Sport model.

I went bike looking with a friend of mine yesterday, He's looking for a Valk. but I was checking out the SV1000's, looks like a whole lotta' fun. I might have to add that to my list as well.

We also checked out an '04 fuel injected FXDX at the HD shop for 15K out the door, Too bad I'm tapped on vehicale payments right now.......

I have not personally ridden any of the newest crop of literbikes, or the 600s either, but in general, my impression from having ridden earlier model R1 and R6 is that the literbikes are more user-friendly for street use -- assuming that the rider has sufficient judgement to remember that the throttle works both directions. The wonderfully flat torque curves make them a lot easier in both everyday riding and flogging through the twisties, compared to the relatively peaky 600s.

I dunno....I'm 54 and I find that the new R1 fits me just about right -- of course, I am someone who fitted rearsets and lower clipons to my Ducati! LOL

I don't know any other San Diego morons. The big Kahuna Morons (Sean, Ebass, etc.) aren't far away though.



I hope your job includes about a million dollars to buy a house. That should net you a good 1200 square ft near a freeway!



Road Star transmission recall? I thought the Far East manufacturers made everything perfectly the first time! lol
