    Trouble is those impatient fuckers get people hurt. Not that road but the same thing caused a driver in our village to crash, he had to swerve violently in a flour tanker. Which if you didn't know acts the same as a liquid in bulk but the tanks aren't baffled. Once the movement goes too far your a passenger. The truck ended up on its side collecting a couple of cars into the bargain. The person causing it drove off into the never never after saving himself 2 minutes. Personally I think cars should be limited like trucks, 80mph. And that's it. Unless your on a track. Its what they do in Japan.

    Nice, but after 8 years I think the op may have it figured out.

    So everything is on site and ready to be installed, now I just have to find time to get to it. Hopefully Friday or Saturday I can post a ride report. I had trouble finding someone to set the rivets in the clutch basket for me - Here in the US we are fond of giving up the fine arts of keeping the old stuff running in favour of football (not futbol) and following Trump tweets and the latest mass shooting. Damn, I wish the forum name "Cynic" was still available, cos it's ME!! Regardless of all that, I found an oldster locally who has, for me, a dream shop of old motorcycles and parts. He has a stack of Yokohama tyres for Enduros that he "may" part with some day; He has a Yammy 175 with a head that could be from a WWII Corsair or Hellcat, pre-reeds cylinder, an expansion chamber pipe I don't recognize, and a weird front fork arrangement. I was in Heaven! He didn't even charge me to drive the rivets on the basket as he had never seen one apart before and appreciated the experience! So keep tuned, we should be riding again shortly...

    Let's be honest, it's a cool idea but it's basically a fast Piaggio mp3. (Just having a laugh ) Dual front wheels, 3 cylinder 900cc engine, 115hp, adjustable front and rear suspension (from what I can tell from the pictures on the Yamaha website) looks like a bucket of fun. And like Cynic said, it might be a pain for filtering, but I know loads of people who filter on a GS1200 (which I think we can all agree is not a slender machine)

    Best tyres?

    Pr3's are great. Stick well enough for me and steer quick too. Wet doesent seem to upset them either. Only a minor niggle but they do need a few miles to warm up on the tdr. Wont be uncontrolable but it does sharpen the mind. That may be down to the tdr weight though.

    Yes but if the guy hadn't kept it spotless and kept all the receipts he may only have got a grand for it.... My thoughts are to each their own. I used to ride all year round including 4 years with a 53 mile each way commute over the Argyll Hills, I don't now....my choice. The apropos of nothing, I remember a few years ago the crank on my auld Bonnie disintegrated. I priced it at c£1k to rebuild the engine, I didn't have a spare grand so offered it for sale on fleabay with an accurate description. I got just over £2k for it. When the guy arrived at my house, I recognised his name as a Triumph Bike breaker, when I asked him he said yes but insisted that he was going to rebuild my bike as he always wanted that particular model. "Give me the money and you can set it on fire in front of me, for all I care" was my answer. Meaning once it's sold it's sold Anyway about a month later I received a letter. remember them, from someone in Surrey who had just bought a Frame, log book and Set of Crankcases...so the bike breaker was a lying fucker as well. A few months later the guy sent me pics of the rebuilt bike and he'd made a grand job of it

    Any sports touring tyre from a reputable manufacturer should be fine. I'm running Dunlop roadsmart 3's on 2 of my bikes without issues. I'd recommend them

    A woman and a baby were in the doctor's examining room, waiting for the doctor to come in for the baby's first exam. The doctor arrived, examined the baby, checked his weight, and being a little concerned, asked if the baby was breast-fed or bottle-fed. "Breast-fed" she replied. "Well, strip down to your waist," the doctor ordered. She did. He pinched her nipples, then pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts for a while in a detailed examination. Motioning to her to get dressed, he said, "No wonder this baby is underweight. You don't have any milk." "I know," she said, "I'm his Grandma, but I'm glad I came."

    Running down a harmonic DT vibe...

    I swear it wasn't me!! Never had a good look at it though. Guess I should look at the front wheel... Some ancient history: I went to what we call in the states a junkyard, specifically a motorcycle yard, back around 1997 or 98, as near as I can figure, in search of a project bike. I had been out of touch with scoots for quite a few years, but something gave me the bug and I went looking. I found two 1978 DT175 basket cases in this yard and picked them both up for $125 US. It took quite a few years to get it sorted to one rideable bike, with copious support from a then-budding ebay. About the only thing original from that rust-infested junkyard is the frame and engine. I'm pretty sure the wheels both came from ebay, and they just got bolted on. I think. Lots of water under the bridge of my memory, and I can't find the pics I'm sure I took as I went along. Pre-digital camera days, so not on my computer. So waiting on parts, the true sign of an avid Yamaboy. At least I have the TW200 to ride whilst I wait. It's a fun little thing, for something with valves, that is. I have 32 miles on it so far; I've been sorting the jetting on it with the help of peeps on its eponymous forum.
