I figure there are some motorcycle guys/gals on CP, so I thought we could have a place to talk all things Motorcycles.

Tire Mount and Balance Prices (as of 10/29/16)

Prices based on if you remove the wheels yourself and bring the wheels and new tires with you:

Cycle Gear - $35 per wheel if you buy tires from them. $58 per wheel if you buy tires elsewhere
Rawhide - $65 per wheel (assuming it would be the same at other HD dealers. they book it at 1/2 hr per wheel)
C R Cycle Tires (DeSoto) - $30 per wheel

Cheapest I've found my Michelin Commander II's. Seem like they have good prices on other brands too.

I also rode moto during the sixties & seventies, my 1972 Bultaco 250 Pursang looked like this (note the right foot shift, as I recall it was a backward pattern too -- 1up 3 down)



It's been several years since I sold my last bike. I am thinking of getting another one -- 2013 Yamaha VMax looks like fun
:-)
I rode the new Vmax recently. You feel like you're sitting really high and engine sounded like it had rocks in it. I thought I would really love that machine. Turns out not so much.

Switching from a sport bike to a VMAX is a big leap. It'll feel like a hog in corners and heavy. But it still handles better than most cruisers and touring bikes. It's made more for straight-aways. I loved mine, but I also had a lot of money and way more horsepower than a guy needs. BTW...the first thing I did was get rid of the factory exhaust. See post 36.

BTW...I'm jealous. I'd love to hit the LS corkscrew!!!

Somewhat.

I'm not going to restore it to stock but I don't want to put cafe bars on it because I'm trying to get away from the tuck position. I just want to cruise now and take some decent trips.

No I am not into the drag scene, The ZX -14 is just longer. Tight corners are more of an issue. It is lighter with more hp though. I am impatiently waiting for the next generation zx to see if I might want to do a craash sceen at over 500 hp at under 500 pounds but that is literally insane. The bike I have now does power weelies at will at 200 hp.

hahaha, well some outfits nearby LS do offer classes with bike furnished, though it's been awhile since I looked into the the LS scene. That track is very challenging because of the changing altitude within the course. coming down the screw is a challenge because the bottom turn is losing altitude and traction is misleading. once out of the corkscrew, there is a downhill grade with fast sweeping lefty that has a slightly funny exit camber to it due to the downhill, then it's off to the final two turns. Love LS. Go hit it mang.
