I'm often envious of people in warmer climates, then realize my summers are generally milder and not enough to prevent me from riding like California. Can't imagine how bad it gets in the summer under all your gear.
Just took the Bobber out first time this season this past Sunday. Spring in Michigan has been particularly frustrating this year. It was a blast. Can't wait to get my forward controls fitted on Monday, then, the only thing standing in my way of riding is sharing time with my Indian Springfield (my smooth torquey long distance companion).
I'm starting a new conversation in order to compliment the one about the bike you're sorry to have gotten rid of.
I'll start with my choice:
1974 Norton 850 Commando, Interstate. We had a love hate relationship. She was a great bike when running properly, fun to ride, very nimble and quick for...
I find it off putting that the bike seems to top out at 95, even with full tuck. I just came from the super sport life and I am not expecting 140+ but 95 seems too low for empty highway runs.
What is the fix to get it up to 110/115 mph?
