I found this on an old hard drive today. This is my bike, when the cords started showing in the back tire. What better way to get the tire off the rim?

Re: Bikers on Board ?

It seems bikes and boats are synonymous. So, I might as well add mine. Even when I was in the Navy in the 60's -70's I had a Sportster. Since riding buddies and myself were on a supply ship we could take our bikes to different Ports with us.

I never did get a picture of my dirt bike while living in AZ.

Re: Bikers on Board ?

I dug through the archives and found a 1978 picture of my 1/2 miler Triumph. These flattrakers had no brakes. We wore a steel shoe on our left foot and slid sideways around the turns. Great fun...Broken rib cage, broken nose twice, broken back (4 places) various dislocations. Can't remember how many concussions. At least 4 (What was my name again?) I really miss it.

Re: Bikers on Board ?

Re: Bikers on Board ?

I have owned 42 bikes. A few of them were not salvageable after crashing while racing.

Re: Bikers on Board ?

No 42 bikes in my history. 1967 Yamaha 80 with the new oil injection. 1969 Honda 350 Scrambler, 1970 BSA Rocket 3, then a long break from bikes and last one a 1982 Suzuki GS1100 E.

Re: Bikers on Board ?

maybe i should correct my post
i've owned a lot of bikes......mosrly racing stuff
and wrecked a few.
wrecking a worked liter bike at speed just ain't much fun
that was the last one.
sent her off swinging on the back of a tow truck

i'm older now ...and supposedly wiser..lol that's a big question mark
recently someone handed me the keys to a new Duc
started it up...looked at it for a minute........
listened to it for another minute and i knew i was in trouble.
shut it off and handed the keys back.

A man's got to know his limitations.....
those days are over.

My V8 when I first got her, someone suggested I Dyno the bike. We took it to a major bike dealer, and they said they would love to, no charge.

The Dyno was rated at 500 HP, but my 430 HP cycle shut it down at 189mph.

I later learned she goes faster than that on a trek I did with several top bikes in the area. One guy with a race bike and a couple seasons of circle track experience caught up to me at a signal light, and told me it did not need nitrous.

I figured, enough is enough, and took the windshield off of her. That way, it seems fast enough at even slower speeds.

Every year, someone dies in my local town, doing what we were doing that evening, being stupid. At those speeds, there is no ultimate control, only luck and dumb luck.

Glad to be chaising hull speeds now.

7.34 knots is my dream these days.

Big Brute. Made by a top fuel dragster transmission builder in Canada. Only made 10 of them to piss off Boss Hoss. They did not like one another. Only thing today that does have a good transmission and could catch my bike is a builder called Vanquish. They start at 125 thousand.

Boss Hoss uses a overdrive for second gear. What happens to transmissions given too much juice in overdrive? They can't take it. Not day after day. So in about 10,000 miles the transmissions come off to be rebuilt. Also the geometry is off. They handle like you would think they would. Mine is easier to ride than a Gold Wing, even at low speeds, like parking lots.

Most Big Brutes today are history. Too much bike to tame with denim.
