About This Club

For motorcycle enthusiast no matter what make or model
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Yes, we are getting closer and closer to riding season. Time to start thinking about what needs to be done to get the bike or bikes back out and on the road. My Harley won't take much. Need to pull the battery, charge/test and reinstall. Do my normal checks and adjustments and so on. This year I am thinking about getting the old Honda Gold Wing back out for at least a few good rides. By that I mean more than just around the block a few times. I need to get her out and stretch her legs a bit. I have been neglecting her since I bought the Harley in 2013. It's a good old bike, all original (save for the seat and sissy bar) and a decent runner. Just lost interest once I bought the Wide Glide. The Honda will need a bit more attention. An oil change is a must, checking tires, brakes and clutch adjustment. Possibly change the timing belts as well, been about 15 years since last changed. And of course they will both need cleaned and detailed to look their best. I'm looking forward to getting some seat time on both of them this year. I may catch a bit of crap from friends about riding the Honda again but I appreciate the old stuff and think it's cool just having old iron on the road regardless of its origins. The Honda is a 1977 model GL1000 (Gold Wing) and its just fun to ride and it does actually get some attention from those that know what it is.
  3. Seems decent to me. Worked just fine. My son used it on his bike as well. If something is gonna break it'll be when he is using it. Lol
  4. I’m real leary of tools from Amazon, but I’m not a fan of the prices of Jim’s either. Decent quality?
  5. I do. The Bagger is 05 TC88 bored and stroked out to 117” . Fun
  6. If I recall correctly, I ordered mine from Amazon. I did get it from Amazon, just looked through my post. Worked well for me.
  7. Wife and I were going to go on an overnight or two trip on the trike this week. Was supposed to be beautiful weather wed till fri.... Of course wed morning we wake up to thunderstorms with rain possible till fri.... Screw it, we took the Ford. Seeing I was in Iowa with a truck, I stopped at J&P Cycles and bought tires and tubes for my Heritage. These... Will be going on here this winter Something to do while the snow flies. Going to replace wheel bearings also this go round.... Got the tool for the bearings on the recommendation of Doubletrouble....thanks bud Forgot the pic...🤣🤣🤣
  8. Not much been really busy with work, first time I've logged into here in 2 months or more. Just haven't got the room in our workshop to even get the engine parts out of the boxes, I did get stainless bolts for the cases though 3 months or so ago And me being stupid I bought a REO Whistler.... Well actually a AM General M50 (same thing) with the White 7.8 multifuel motor, sick of putting well over £500 a month of diesel in my ram, this year I'm at £7600 ish up to now, my ram does enough to the gallon it's just the miles I'm doing. Whistler is on 46 hydraulic oil and I'm in the job to get gallons of that and the best bit, no vehicle tax, no safety check per year and allowed into all low emissions zones due to age, no special license due to age and cheap Insurance, downside is slow and no p/steering actually logged into here to ask if anyone else has one or knows anything about them
  9. Your lucky... Even my ATV has been down for the summer with a bad rear brake cable for the left-hand lever. I've not done any riding this year at all.
  10. I ahhvent riden as much as I'd like but I did get in about 50 miles today coming home from the camp ground.
  11. Been getting a few miles on. I love getting out and forgetting everything. It's a feeling that just isn't there in a vehicle. Not that I have alot to worry about, but two moms can keep a guy busy without the dads around to take care of things. Now that the extreme heat is about over, we'll plan on a few overnight or two night rides. Looking forward to the next couple months.....
  12. Ya, I know. Thanks, haha, confused, sad and the heart is like...... It's no biggy, I just felt more than a like.... The like should be a thumbs up...👍 I loved it, should be a red heart.... ❤️
  13. Ummm... Look in the lower right of the post there is (Heart Icon) Then there is Thanks, HaHa, Confused, and Sad...
  14. We need a heart option for likes because I loved that post....
  15. Finally got the bike out on the road! Went for a ride with my daughter, she has a 650 Kawasaki ninja, still new to riding but she has come a long way. Her and I went to dinner for Father's day and rode for about an hour and a half total. It was a great time. Really seems weird though checking my mirrors and seeing my little girl back there on her own bike. Dam, I'm getting old!
  16. Yeah, they don't like to sit around to long. I think mine is mad at me now. Still haven't rode. Had planned to Friday and Saturday but I wrenched my back Friday morning and been in pain ever since.
  17. Pulled the old girl off the lift and gave her a much needed bath. Went for a little ride. I sure love this old bike. Gotta show her some love this winter and start riding her more.....
  18. Yes it is! And your welcome. Trike looks awesome! I like the blacked out look on that. Makes it look more sleek and not so "grandpa-ish" if that makes sense. Glad to see it back up and road ready. Congrats
  19. P.S. Thanks for the tip on S100. That stuff is the bomb diggity....👍👍👍
