So, what you're saying is that you compared your Gay Times magazine subscription to this article?

Nice to see article with out-of-ordinary perspective. Excellent.



Fine points about not trying to make your ride something it just ain't a-gonna be.

Nice article with some great tips. As I have said before, adjusting valves on an Duck is not a big deal. The "tense and release" program he described really works. Due to not making reservations on a trip to the mountains, I spent twelve hours in the saddle of a 750SS Duck. Outside of a little stiffness in the upper back in the morning, I was fine (even though I was closing in on 50 at the time).

I think anybody who really loves motorcycles should occasionaly take a long trip on one. After a while, it's just you and your bike, and all that stuff that's waiting for you at home kinda fades away.

Funny how reliability becomes your bikes most appreciated trait in times like those. That thing has got to have your back., no matter what. Never go on a long trip on a machine you don't trust, or can't cope with, if something minor goes wrong. Don't ask how I know.

........and how do you get 60-70mpg on a 749cc twin? Did you hitch it to another bike? Coast on all downhills? I just don't buy that kind of gas mileage....
