Nothing like a chick fidgeting when you're doing a low speed maneuver.Weird how much a little bit of weight changes the dynamics of a motorcycle.
One time I bought around 100lbs of weight plates and tossed them in the rear boxes of my Transalp, I almost crashed on the first tip in thinking it would feel just like riding with a passenger.
I have a couple friends that have them, I've ridden a few. flat out that is not a sumo, a cool bike but it's just too big and heavy to be a sumo.Opinions on the husq 701 super moto? Sold my fz09 last year and getting the itch again. Don’t want sport or cruiser but want something that might still kill me if i push it too far ?
I've been getting caliper rebuild kits from Brake Crafters and brake lines from Core MotoGot a bit further last night, brought out the torque wrench and snug'd up axle bolt, pinch bolts, calipers...and completely forgot to spec the bolts in the triple tree. Do that tomorrow....
Should probably replace banjo bolts and crush washers all around. Spiegler still the way to go?
Lol I used to ride around with a 24 pack of beer in my backpack. Sure throws weight to the inside in corners quickly.Took the Grom for groceries. Nothing like riding home with an extra 25lbs of food on your back
DRZ is such an overweight pig imo.I keep wanting to try dirt riding and get a DRZ400SM (can only fit one bike in the garage, so I'd have to sell my FZ8).
But then I ride my FZ8 and it's a blast. Worried that the DRZ won't be as much fun on the street (twisties) as the FZ is, and that I won't enjoy dirt riding (or be able to find it around here.... no truck/trailer to transport the bike).
I figure I could get the DRZ, ride it for a few years, then if I don't like it, I could buy a used MT09 and it'd be a win-win.
