  1. Our local dealer is considering a private unveiling and assembly of the 1st Z900RS they receive. If so, I'll be there!
  2. New Police Motorcycle by Yamaha

    You will never see a officer on a Harley in any type of high speed pursuit, that's a fact! Hahahahahahahaha, made myself laugh!
  3. New Police Motorcycle by Yamaha

    I should of said "new to the USA", it's been out in other global markets for a long time..... Harley's are horrible police bikes. Great parade bikes. The high speed handling characteristics of the Harley police bikes is known to be slightly better than a cracked brick....... Harley does offer huge discounts and other perks to police departments, that's the main reason so many of them are out there. It's OK, it really is.....
  4. Looks like there is another option to the Harley police motorcycle -
  5. Check the Kawasaki web site tomorrow (December 1st) at 9:00AM CST for full details on all the new 2018 Kawasaki's
  6. Spoke to a fellow who rode the Z900RS last week in California. Everything he said was excellent. The US will only have one version, two colors and it will be in limited quantities. Unofficially, of course, until December 1st, when the formal introduction is made in New York - Ah, "New York Steak", I remember now why......
  7. Hey hey hey - that's what keeps those parts sellers in business! LOL Just this past week we repaired a customer's machine, and he ended up paying "the stupid tax". Personally, I think he got off cheap, $400.00. He brought in his machine with a no-start no run condition. The technician hooked the machine up to the computer and followed the manufacturer's diagnostic process to the letter. Ultimately we found the customer had poorly wired in a set of LED lights and the resulting incompetence resulted in water entering his fuse box, destroying multiple jcase fuses and possibly long term damage to the fuse box itself. When I called the customer, he told me that he was an expert HVAC technician and that we should've checked the fuse box 1st thing - To which I replied "Yes, you probably should have". I see too many good motorcycles destroyed with good intent. Always have, always will.......

    Good to see you Greg!
  9. Kawasaki H2 SX

    Supercharged Sport Touring Anyone? I don't think it is enough to get Terry off the SV...... Or is it?
  10. Now that we've seen the "Cafe" version, what do you think? Not quite a Z1R replica, or a ELR replica, ironically, a Wes Cooley replica? I like it, bottom line, it is awesome. And then, the original "new Z1" replica - hopefully coming to us sooner rather than later - I think Kawasaki has a hit on it's hands - Based on the Z900, which I've ridden and found to be a total blast to ride - will this resurrect "vintage" and/or "retro" sales more than the offerings from Honda and Yamaha? Anyone else like the old school look? Or not?

    I'm taking a weekend of Roots Blues and BBQ The 22nd a small group of "vintage" Japanese bike riders are heading to Swiss, that may be the closest I get to you guys this year. I am craving a good Reuben though, so I may yet make it this year.

    Rock Rock Canyon loop is good. Valley of fire is better, time to do them both - and more! You're going to have a great time!
  13. I made an effort but shit happened - ride safe all
  14. Another amazing tool....

    Rumor is one of the best tools to have is something called a "T-Berg" ;)
