Next year? You can join the fly-over caravan!
Depends on what happens, medically, between now and then.
Understood. If you can make it, that would awesome. Shit, if I can make it, that would be jangleplatz!
Hey, if I could make it, that would have no bearing on any of this conversation.
It is never too early to plan DOOOOOM!
You're welcome to tag along , but you're gonna have to BYOBike!
So now I wanna know if there's a limit to the quote tags terrible powers.
Oooh, exciting! Let's find out!
By the way, BSH, I may actually have a loaner. I might scoop up the CBR that is living in my garage. It may get to DooM and back in one piece.
Didn't realize you were fostering a CBR, I thought it was just the GS-from-Hell? What kind of CBR, inquiring minds want to know!
The GS is gone as of about 2 hours ago, I hauled it off to the owners garage. The CBR is owned by my cousin's boyfriend. He bought it dirt cheap, it's trashed, no plastics and the forks are in rough shape. Victim of some small town squid. However, he doesn't have the time, knowledge or money to really get it on the road and has been talking about getting a running bike. So, I told him I'd give him what he paid for it. It wouldn't be my only bike but rather something to tinker on and let other people ride when needed.
Don't laugh at my filthy garage.
199(2?) CBR600 F2
I mean, if that isn't just positively SCREAMING Indy Mad Max Run bike, then I don't what else would.
Frankly the CBR600F2 is a hell of a bike, well worth sorting out. Forks should be easy to come by, looks like a stainless header, replace that shitty cannister, tune the carbs, should be a decent bike. I'd be willing to bet a set of plastics (mismatched but worthy of a coat of matching black spray paint) could be had relatively cheaply, as well.
Yeah, it's perfect for that ride! I told him that exhaust is gonna be deafening. It's a Delkevic system, which I had on my XJ and that 4 into 2 sounded great. Plastics are pretty cheap, as well as replacement forks. I need to revisit my offer and see what he says. One thing I definitely like is that it has down-draft carbs, so easy to remove! A set of bar risers and MX bars would fix half of the posture problem, can't do anything about the folded knees though.
I'd be surprised if someone hasn't come up with a set of rear-sets that bring the pegs lower and forward a bit.
Looks like they may exist! BSH, it's your turn to add to the quote rabbit hole.
From my research, people seem to be building brackets to shift the OEM rearsets around as there is very little aftermarket available except maybe Woodcraft. So break out the die grinder/Dremel and get to hacking.
Grinders and sparks? I'm not making a cafe racer!
Looks like good ol' Uly pegs will fit with a little encouragement.
Its like Erik Buell is speaking to you from the grave. Except, he's not dead which makes it about a million times creepier.
I do miss my Uly but my desire to not have debt wrapped up in a motorcycle outweighs that nostalgia. Have you seen the spy shots of the KTM 390 Adventure? Looks pretty snazzy for you orange kool-aid drinkers. Wouldn't that be Tang?
Seen 'em, but TBH I am still holding my breath waiting to get my butt on a 790 Duke. Not that I am in a position to spend anything over $2k on a bike right now anyway while we are renovating our house, but still a man can dream. And that new Suzuki Kay-Tannah looks pretty sweet as well while I am dreaming.
I'm keeping my sights low. Single cylinder dual sport, 400cc to 650cc, preferably air cooled. Cheap cheap cheap. Or the rat CBR, although the thought of riding more than an hour on that bike makes my knee hurt.
I dreamt about something along these lines:
Absolutely ridiculous and completely awesome. I know PA would agree.
That's some interesting frame bracing, but its a cool looking bike.
Not long now!
Does the board implode at some point?
I do love a little anarchy, let’s find out together.
My scroll-wheel finger is going to get tired at some point...
Man, we really let this quote vortex stall out. Let's get back to it.
Don't give up now!
Oh, right, I'd forgotten about this. It's the sort of thing that falls by the wayside if others don't pitch in.
Is it too early to plan 2019?
Was it too early when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
If we finally hit the quote threshold, I'm gonna have stickers or patches made for us. Like a military medal for some special mission, whatever those are called.
Challenge coins! We need challenge coins!
I say we need some kind of forearm chevron patch to go on our jackets.
