      Sep 17, 2019, 13:07:49

    • Maritime: holy dogsit batman. 500!
      Sep 17, 2019, 15:27:24
    • Maritime: the person doing the adds has know motorcycle knowledge. The RD350 is listed as a 350 torque induciton motorcycle LOL
      Sep 17, 2019, 15:34:35
    • Maritime: Which is BS that they put on the side covers of the RD line
      Sep 17, 2019, 15:35:18
    • Rider52: Never needed a snow blower in Chicago. We lived in the southern suburbs. Didn't need one when we lived near Montreal either! However, I really needed one in Richmond, VA!
      Sep 17, 2019, 16:10:35
    • Hurco550: i need a snowblower here in ohio. I dont own one, but i need one haha
      Sep 17, 2019, 16:15:10
    • Rider52: We lived just south of Cleveland for 6 years. Right in the middle of the snow belt. Never had a snow blower!  I did wear out 3 snow shovels, but had abs of steel and no problem with weight control. Some days we would have to shovel the drive 5 times especially when the plows were running.
      Sep 17, 2019, 16:58:49
    • Maritime: I have to have a blower here, it's mandatory if you don't want a heart attack LOL
      Sep 18, 2019, 08:28:41
    • Hurco550: itll be intersting to see the first winter here in town on a corner lot. We have two drives, one on each street. The last few years at my old place i had gotten "bad" about locking the old silver-ay-do in 4 hi and giving er hell till she's on the road haha i think i shoveled once last year, otherwise i just floored it out of the drive
      Sep 18, 2019, 10:38:40
    • Maritime: We're on a hill and if I don't snow blow, I can leave the house no problem but getting back up is not happening LOL
      Sep 18, 2019, 13:35:45
    • Hurco550: haha good ol ohio flatland. where were at now the only thing stopping me will be however high the plows pile the snow in front of my drive
      Sep 18, 2019, 14:41:41
    • Hurco550: i park maybe 20 ft from the road
      Sep 18, 2019, 14:42:05
    • Maritime: Ha nice.
      Sep 19, 2019, 09:57:21
    • Hurco550: So im picking up a DL1000 Vstrom soon for a new daily mule. My commute is 50 miles of straight flat ohio roads. Im really thinking i might try going darkside on it when the current tire wears out. Im about to mount the 2nd tire on my BMW that about looks like a car tire now from being worn out in the middle haha
      Sep 19, 2019, 10:05:21
    • Maritime: Not sure what you mean by Darkside but the DL1000 is on my short list of bikes to own someday so jealous.
      Sep 19, 2019, 10:24:46
    • Hurco550: Darkside is what they call it when you mount a car tire on the back. Guys get booko miles out of them. I guess its pretty hot button topic with the square profile, but tons of guys have done it. The people that boo it are all ones that have never done it lol
      Sep 19, 2019, 10:36:33
    • Hurco550: And i should have said new to me, not actually new
      Sep 19, 2019, 10:36:51
    • Hurco550: its actually a first year DL1000... 2002
      Sep 19, 2019, 10:49:17
    • Hurco550: still pretty new by my standards though haha
      Sep 19, 2019, 10:49:33
    • Hurco550: .
      Sep 19, 2019, 10:56:27
    • Maritime: Ha, gotcha. PIDJones here runs a car tire on his GL1800. and if I got a DL it would be the same deal
      Sep 19, 2019, 11:15:50
    • Maritime: If you run freeway and straight roads a car tire is fine. You can have other bikes with round profiles for back twisties. Or carry a spare rear wheel for when you get to the fun stuff
      Sep 19, 2019, 11:17:06
    • Hurco550: well considering i had to fight hard to scrub the chicken strips on the 705 on the back of the dr650, i dont think ill over corner a CT on a v strom. The tire is also cheaper than a MC tire, so if it sucks ill only be out less than $100
      Sep 19, 2019, 11:31:30
    • Hurco550: i may have to pick pd's brain
      Sep 19, 2019, 11:31:56
    • Maritime: Yeah he's got pics of that bike hauled over on the dragon on the car tire so you'll be fine
      Sep 19, 2019, 11:43:14
    • Maritime: And that video I didn't watch could be him on his wing LOL
      Sep 19, 2019, 14:03:05
    • Hurco550: the video is a dl1000, but there is a video of a goldwing scraping pipes on the tail of the dragon on a car tire
      Sep 19, 2019, 15:27:51
    • Rider52: When I was in Europe a lot of guys were running 15" car tires mostly VW. They would removed the center from a VW rim, dimple it for spokes and lace it to their hubs. Many of their bikes were daily transportation and they rode in all types of weather and all types of roads.  I was a jaded American, so I never tried it but know they had pretty good success.
      Sep 19, 2019, 15:45:08
    • Hurco550: i have been reading about it pretty extensively and it is a very funny and polarizing topic. In fact you and Mike are the only "moderate" people so far. Otherwise it is the people who have done it and say its fine and people who havent done it who argue that its terrible. I cannot find a legit failure or accident caused by the tire anywhere online. In fact the ones marked "accident caused by car tire on motorcycle" are all troll videos posted to facebook by people using them. haha its several minutes of them riding with nothing bad happening at all
      Sep 19, 2019, 15:50:21
    • Rider52: I wish I had tried one of bikes so I could give you an honest first hand opinion.
      Sep 19, 2019, 16:10:21
    • Maritime: Reach out to PIDJones he'll tell ya the truth I am sure. His profile pic speaks volumes LOL
      Sep 19, 2019, 16:29:38
    • Maritime:
      Sep 19, 2019, 16:30:23
    • Rider52: I need to contact PD! I found a derelict GL1000 in a salvage yard. I have not looked at it yet, but it may have the illusive rear passenger grab rail he was needing.
      Sep 19, 2019, 17:17:46
    • Maritime: For some reason the grab rails go missing on a lot of the GL's
      Sep 20, 2019, 08:20:29
    • Hurco550: its funny how those little take offs end up being the rare peices down the road. Bradj said the same about the seat hoops on the titans. They all came with them but they also almost all got pitched. now they are rare
      Sep 20, 2019, 10:13:25
    • Maritime: Yep, that's how it goes. another rare part is the fork caps. If you strip one they are rare as hen's teeth to get new ones. I had to hunt for weeks and got lucky Tim had a guy he knew who had spares and saved me
      Sep 20, 2019, 10:34:38
    • Maritime: Honda stopped making them and the NOS are all used up.
      Sep 20, 2019, 10:35:12
    • Hurco550: and parts like that still dont have quite enough demand for someone to repop them either. Its quite an eningma
      Sep 20, 2019, 11:48:52
    • Maritime: Yep
      Sep 20, 2019, 12:53:23
    • Rider52: No passenger grab rail on the derelict Wing. The hunt continues!
      Sep 20, 2019, 17:43:30
    • Rider52: Ten years ago a friend of mine flipped a Honda V65.  He had a box of extra parts for it but the new owner didn't want them. I ended up with the box. There was an aluminum grab rail/sissy bar thing in the box and I put it on EBay with a $1.00 starting bid/no reserve. When the auction ended it sold for $250! I had no idea this part had become one of the rare parts for V65s!
