  1. I've had my Sidi Cobra rain boots for 8 years and love them, just had a old Italian cobbler replace the soles to keep them going for a few more years. Wouldn't hike all day in them but great on the bike.
  2. I'd like to try one too, but $25K for base model and $40K for premium version is a bit much...then watch the first few episodes of Long Way Up and see what you'd be up against. I'm ready to give it a go, when the electric infrastructure is there to support something beyond a daily commuter.
  3. Yeah, Joe has some good parts for rebuilding those carbs, great resource. Sounds like you've got it handled, good luck. I took a 93 in almost as bad shape and it's maybe my favorite runner now. Took a little work but they come back to life amazingly, well worth the effort.
  4. I put the tire on already, I can weight both and start a new thread. With the Aussie convert kit it's just mechanical bolt on of bits, nothing too technical. This is a 6" Duc wheel, so a 190 tire. Contact Sebspeed here on the forum for the clear clutch cover.
  5. The Givi tubular side racks will work with a high mount, with a small amount of mods. Check out SW-Motech too.
  6. I do...working on converting my 5th gen..
  7. Congrats Dutchy! Like me, I'm sure you'll be in a much Happier Place!!
  8. Don't know how I missed this site all these years, but he's got a bunch of great articles on maintenance and lots of gorgeous restorations he's done. Great V4 resource especially for the older bikes. http://v4dreams.com/index.html
  9. And here in the US the races are now on NBC and NBC Sports. I expect many commercials and truncated coverage.
  10. @TimC I'v sat on the SS but haven't taken it out, the ergos seemed very similar to the VFR, but given everything I'd opt to stay with the VFR for that style of bike. I do have a 2016 Multistrada and it is generally a great bike, loads of torque and great for touring, two-up and bags. I use it for commuting, day rides and two up frequently. It's a blast to ride but I have had some issues with leaking fork seals twice at under 6K miles each time, the typical fuel sensor failure that seems to be common to Ducati and my biggest complaint is the wind buffeting. A few fixes have cal
  11. Congrats, I didn't know they were still making them for sale anywhere. Ducati's recommended oil. With 4 bikes I'm sticking to the dino for the Hondas.
  12. I'll plug https://www.kurveygirl.com/shop/index.php for angled stems. Plus they have the best stickers with your order.
  13. What do you think of a side mounted oil cooler? Could there be enough air flow? Or maybe a thermo controlled fan behind it?
  14. This is a good read. Check out the mileage on his 1990 VFR. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.vfrdiscussion.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php%3Fid%3D51135&ved=2ahUKEwjL7LiH-pHqAhVJFTQIHaC-DAkQFjABegQIBhAV&usg=AOvVaw3sQvPho3oybkg97oAbYSP3&cshid=1592710010318 I've done 120k miles on my '99 in all weather, I'd trust the 8th gen to do the same.
  15. No, I'll post up once I work things out, haven't had much time lately. It looks pretty straightforward though.
