  1. Conti Road Attack 3....grip like a sport tire, wear like a touring tire. If you have a 5.5” rear try a 170 and be amazed at the feeling, it is as though your VFR lost 100 lbs in weight.
  2. Because the surface abrasiveness varies so greatly from area to area, can you share how many miles you get from other known tires so we can compare the PR5 with something we know from our area?
  3. Tried to help you out with some fab info but the 5th gen bikes we can access right now have 6th gen cushions on them for updated rear sets....still looking.
  4. Good to see the art of compromise is not lost on your marriage either.
  5. So glad to have you back! You were missed and we have some catching up to do when you get down (strike that now) up to the Eastern TN area ping me.
  6. I am not aware of anyone mounting 6G pipes on an 8G bike, though I have seen many 5G high mounts (Staintune and others) mounted on the 8G. I dont think the undertail on the 8G would support the weight of hanging the 6G exhaust from it.
  7. Wow, just dropped in to catch up between flights and you guys have been very busy. The clever bung fitting references and not being a pain in Wades butt are only exceeded by the work actually accomplished. I can hardly wait, hope to get one installed before the Spring Memorial ride.
  8. Wow, thank you guys for bringing this to fruition! It seemed to be the old 80/10 rule, where the last 10% never gets done - until now. i will need five sets. 1. 5th gen with PC2 and Wolf exhaust, can upgrade the fuel management with the new O2 bungs and would probably forward my midpipe to be expanded for fit by Wade. 2. 5th gen engine in 6th gen chassis with 2007 body (35th anniversary edition with 8th gen front forks and swinger) PCV with Staintune 6th gen exhaust. 3. 6th gen with Torocharger, will need 8th gen front downpipes to add additional 8th gen lower rad for engine temp control, Rapid Bike fuel management and Staintune for 6g 4. 5th gen track bike in 6g chassis - will need 8th gen front downpipes for removal of all sidemount rads for track day exploration of the envelope. Rapid bike and some can TBD...toying with paring front and rears only to run under tail exit for rear and under mount exit for front cylinders ala RC211V 5. 6th gen with rapid bike controller and stock exhaust. Let me know how to forward the deposit. Shaping up up to the a great ‘19 !!!! Keith
  9. I know this is a dormant thread but it is the closest I could find to my question. I am building a track bike and looking at track bike displays, can anyone confirm that the 8th gen is canbus compatible? I am thinking to start with an 8g harness and clip away what I don't need to wire in either http://www.xtracing.com/en/gpxzed/index.php or http://aimsports.com/en/products/solo2-solo2dl/index.htm and thinking that the Solo 2 would be better if connecting via canbus.

  11. The Carver Clan just pullover into Casa de Carver and unloaded the bikes from the trailer, 21 hours after we left yesterday. Pics to follow.
  12. Very interested in your VFR1200, can you send me more detailed pics?

      Sorry, driving all night - tired...thought I was sending a PM.

  13. The Sweeper/Carver clan just5 crossed into South Dakota on I90...we are about 6 hours out and Randy is driving this tank of petrol. Fuel sto in less than 15 miles and it will be my turn. See you lot late tonight in Custer.
  14. OK, how does that saying go? "better never than late..." I am packing up the tow rig on Saturday with 3-4 VFRs and 3 VFRD'ers and heading towards Custer. As I read through this thread I see that I have missed several pacing items that required a response. I will reach out to Tony when we arrive to see if there may be a spare beer or some such convenience. Reserved my room on page one of this or the other thread but never confirmed. Not used to such a thorough process. Looking forward to riding this area on a VFR instead of the F6B I went through there on my way home from Alaska on last year. Not sure if I will be bringing my bespoke 5th gen that fits like my favorite pair of jeans or the ToroCharged 6th gen which still needs some fuel injection tuning, an exhaust and to have Traxxion work their magic. See you guys in a week.
  15. Depends, You can go through lower KY and find some decent two lane back roads through the Southern Illinois and across the Mississippi but then you have to get north through Iowa and across SD or you can find some two lane roads along the rivers across Tennessee then tap dance the Arkansas/Missouri to take the beat down of Northern OK or Southern KS before heading to higher ground north through Colorado. I will probably head out one way and back the other. After 6 weeks and 15,612 miles to get from SC to Artic Circle and back this past summer I am just looking forward to hanging with the VFRD Peeps again.
  16. #25 booked for the Carver clan....arriving a day early and dragging azz out a day late.
  17. Part of what we have to look forward to.... https://roadtrippers.com/trips/17510570?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=Weekly_Email&utm_campaign=112817 I will bring a V4 even though the flat 6 is much more comfortable on the crap sections on the way across the country. Let me know if anyone from the southeast/mid-atlantic want to gather at casa de carver for group ride across.
  18. I just voted for Custer even though I spent 3 days in the area this summer on my way home from the Arctic Circle. There are some amazing roads in that area and I only rode most of them in one direction.

    Great photo! I have only seen more stars myself when in the Navy and haze gray and underway. When you several hundred miles out at sea you can truly see some night sky's that accurately place us in a proper perspective, as Cogswell pointed out.

    So much want in this one picture.....tell us about the 840 in the bike in the foreground.

    RC36 and RC26

    Beautiful. Wish I had known you were going to be in the area.

  23. Sometimes helps to find neutral as you coasting up to the stop before the transmission stops spinning.
  24. I agree, it looks the seat was ripped of for theft or possibly after an accident at the salvage yard.
