Sweet idea. I've kicked around trying to find an old GB500 or SRX600 from time to time. Decent copies are hard to find. This would fill the bill.

It's more fun to go fast on a slow bike then to go slow on a fast bike.

No it isn't. If that were true, you'd own a TUX 250 instead of a liter Triumph.

Is it fun to TRY to go fast on a slow bike? Sure. But is it MORE fun? No f'ing way.

Has that improved? Can you send them money and get back a kit in a reasonable time now?

Here's the answer from Ryca: "At the moment, we are caught up with orders. Since we use the stock tank and rear hub of the customer's donor bike to create their kit, the standard lead time is about 4-6 weeks depending on options (primered kit vs painted, etc)."

I was curious if Suzuki even made the Savage anymore. They do. It's called the S40 now. I didn't realize how innovative it is. Check this out:

Climb aboard a true classic. Kick back and enjoy the timeless style that made riding synonymous with freedom. It’s all about the laid-back stance, broad saddle, and that irresistible V-twin rumble.
Suzuki has successfully engineered the world's only single-cylinder V-Twin!

Well fed or not, can we please not have nonsense that contradicts the laws of physics in Motorcycle.com?

Speaking of which, while I didn’t quite nudge the speedo past 100 mph, my guess is that the 200-plus pounds that I burdened the Ryca with was the only thing holding it back.
Uh, no. Possibily the non-aerodynamic bulk of your 200-and-non-of-our-business pounds and your XXL riding suit affected top speed. But believe me, if you topped out at 92 mph, and you strapped a 100 lb. anvil behind you and repeated the test, you would still go 92 mph.

Repeat after me. Weight has NOTHING to do with top speed. It is a function of horsepower and aerodynamics.

Otherwise a really fun article, thanks.

I'll bet a single-cylinder V-twin has less drag.

Tell me that while we race up Big Cottonwood Canyon which has a 4000 ft elevation gain in 17 miles.
