  1. Flya, you’ve hit on the difficulty in interpreting dyno charts - what do they mean to the way a motorcycle actually rides? If one is lucky enough to take the two motorcycles in question - Hammerdrill’s 6 gen and Samuelx’s 8 gen - out for a 100 miles or so that includes a bit of city surface streets, a bit of freeway, and healthy helping of one’s favorite twisty roads (I was exactly this lucky), the conclusion drawn would actually be that the 8 gen has more power, and certainly more grunt. This impression comes from the midrange, and my subjective opinion Is that unless we are riding our VFRs

  4. Sorry to hear that; I am in the same bot so I feel you. Please do take the ride and take care of yourself.. Once you get a job, you wish you had the time to ride! It sucks hearing about all the layoffs and the economic impact. It's good that we have a therapeutic hobby.

  5. I don't care for camping either. My first couple places to visit I'll have family or friends to stay with though so that'll be nice. I'm considering riding down the sierra nevadas, or maybe riding north into BC/YT, but I have to look and see what's "open" right now.

  6. Believe me, I will be spamming this place with photos as soon as I get my paws on the bike! I'm looking for accessories already, I probably need to stop before I can't afford fuel on the way back. I definitely want a radiator grille having managed to puncture my XJ6 radiator, but they all seem to be for the manual version. I'll take a look at your seating guys, cheers! Edit: R&G do a DCT version of their radiator grill, but I've just realised I'd be crazy to buy one before actually seeing if it has one 😄

  7. In simple terms, max. power only determines top speed. Torque determines how quickly you get there.

  8. Check out this guy for that rock solid in the turns experience: http://daughertymotorsports.com/ He upgraded my forks and installed a rebuilt high-quality rear shock for about $1,000. Transformed the experience! Steering now is nearly telepathic. He set it up for my weight and riding style. Set the sag, rebound, etc. Being retired with lots of time on my hands hauled my fifth gen to him Indianana, but I believe you can send him your parts or he'll send you the things to DIY.

  9. That would be a traumatic experience for most, including me. Perhaps I'd been lucky. But practice can bring knowledge and confidence.

  10. Test drove the bike after pair valve delete and oh boy was it different. I might have fixed a vacuum leak when cleaning and reconnecting the hoses. Clutch switch was just dirty. Thanks! Im quite happy with the bike as my first, not too powerless to get bored after a month and still pretty easy to ride especially after pc3 and pair valve delete.

  11. If it ain't leaking then don't touch it would be my advice.

  12. I have to say, in my getting lost travels, I've ridden lots of gravel roads and it did not take long to get over the reluctance to do it. There have been some gravel that turned to imbedded soccer-ball sized rocks. But, undeterred, I learned how to ride standing up and looking further into the distance to pick a general path, avoiding the really big ones. The tires did great, my knees got a workout, and no bad results. It was first gear for miles on end. There was one road from Cedar City, UT to a back enterance to Zion National Park passing near Brians Head, labeled "closed in win

  13. The other day I went exploring, trying to find the route that the Butler map shows between two points. Edit: it appears I missed an important detail on the map and went the wrong way. We rode a paved mountain trail through tons of tree debris and over fallen trees until we simply ran out of pavement and had to go back. Oh well. At least we got to see this great view.

  15. Gentlemen, our fellow VFRD member Hammerdrill has run into health problems that have forced him to hang up his riding gear. Sadly, in addition to losing a riding brother, his 6 gen [Named Lola] is now up for sale. This was our 6 gen test bike for dyno tuning on the header project:
