  1. Yes its a Kendon. I bought it in 2014 and have towed bikes all up and down the west coast. Best investment I've made in motorcycle stuff.
  2. The second week of December I went down to the Southwest to see a bunch of big rocks. Read all about it on my blog: https://crotchrocketeer.blogspot.com/2020/12/snowbird-december-2020.html (I'm really too lazy to copy it all and pictures and stuff into a post here)
  3. Mostly year round but November-December-January-February is a lot less. Just out for an hour here and there. Mostly its the debris on the roads from trees and rain washing gravel into the corners that causes the problem. My area is pretty low elevation so we don't get any real snow.
  4. Heated gear! I'm a wuss about the cold. Although I turned off the heated gear while I was at the coast because it was in the low 50s.
  5. I escaped the gloom of the valley and went to the coast.
  6. I've visited some gas stations that didn't look like they were open. Just run down shacks in the middle of nowhere with a pump out front. Finding out that the name brand gas station you'd planned to fill at closed a year ago and having to fill at Uncle Peet's Gas and Meth emporium is why we call it an adventure.
  7. I have my bike back. After four months of waiting for parts (warehouses show parts in stock that aren't and by the time they figure it out its been a month....) I had my mechanic use a rebuild kit on the fuel pump. Its running good now. Now I need to snowbird south and ride around the desert for the next few months! The fuel filter was pretty well clogged. My reasoning is that had something to do with the pump failing.
  8. My 2014 is staying stock. This was merely a hypothetical. I realize even IF someone did this and made it work, it wouldn't be an RSV4.
  9. Thank you for the info. It sounds like going about it electronically (with the solenoid) would be the more feasible route. I've had the opinion for a while that the VTEC would be better if it were a switch on the handlebar, like a "sport mode" switch (as opposed to something done to meet emissions standards). Anyways the idea of making the V4 into a 4-valve all the time engine came up discussing performance bikes (Panigale V4, RSV4) and theoretically how to build-your-own Honda V4 superbike using a VFR as a base. I'll keep this in mind if I ever acquire an extra VFR and a few thousand buc
  10. This is a hypothetical, just something I've been kicking around in my head for a while and now that I'm not riding all the time... Hypothetically if someone wanted to modify a 6th/8th gen bike to be "always" in VTEC (always running on 4 valves per cylinder), how would you do it? The best way to get rid of the rough VTEC transition is to always run in VTEC!
  11. I've triggered it in less than ideal conditions and ideal conditions. Mostly where I have it going off it at stop lights where there's lots of oil and water accumulation, or over manhole covers.
  12. If you can get them. My mechanic reported that the 8th gen fuel pump I need is backordered.
  13. I already have heated gear. I had a one piece textile for two seasons and didn't really care for it (not an aerostich). Generally I don't want to wear normie clothes under my gear, I wear insulating and base layers. Normie clothes bunch up and retain moisture too much.
