The riding out there really is spectacular, and the cops aren't nearly as batshit gung-ho as they are around here.0l4fderstout wrote:Looking at the map it looks like there's some good riding between Grant and Pike's Peak.
Yeah. At the time I'd already been thinking "Gosh, this altitude thing isn't too bad! I'm a total lowlander,* but I can hack it!"Rench wrote:I don't remember push starting RVs bike, probably cause I was in fetal position trying not to puke in the lowest spot I could find on top. I've never gotten altitude sickness before, I'd like to avoid it in the future.
I keep hearing about this and I just don't understand. Did no one think to just coast it down? Ya know.... from the top....... a little dead stick action is good practice.Jaeger wrote:
Riding Pike's Peak was fun, but bump-starting RV's SV at the top SUUUUUUCKED.
That is absolutely amazing you found his bike like that.Skkot wrote: The previous owner that signed the title was Dozer, and that was why my friend at the dealership mentioned it to me, as they knew him too. The crash bars looked familiar as they had been on my own XS-650 but I gave them to Dozer knowing he would use them and he did. As it happens, the University of Maryland School of Sociology now has a permanent installation of Dozer's work, and at the opening a couple weeks ago I talked with his sister and she wants that bike. I can get it for the cost of the tow (or less), but ironically it will probably cost more to ship it to LA than it is technically worth..

I'll update on the XS-650, maybe get the Yamaha guy's pinky too.
Don't you mean "fix the Uly multiple times by then"?Mk3 wrote:Do we have dates set? I'm working on cementing this in, which may necessitate a new bike if I can't fix the uly by then.
