    Stick with it, Stevo and good luck keeping your bike on the road. :)

    That is a neat solution to accommodating chain slack as the suspension moves. However, I will make one observation: All of the street/dual purpose motorcycles that I have seen don't use an active...

    I agree. Instant wear. Anyone recall the days of the nylon rear wheel sprocket and oil-less, non-O ring, no maintenance chains? The motorcycle magazines were touting those clean and light chain...

    I can't believe that the Motor Parilla brand has returned. I remember their motorcycles that were being built for just a short while during the early 1960's - before the company went belly-up. But...

    Thanks for reminding my Ted. I read every word in your book, but at my age my memory isn't what it used to be - and it was never very good to begin with. :rolleyes:

    You certainly are bringing up EV history that I never knew, Ted. Unfortunately my EV knowledge, such as it is, started in 2009 with my purchase of a 2008 GPR-S. That was when my frustration with...

    I recall that. What I wondered was how did those characters manage to kill their goose and what ever became of them and their Native motorcycle operation? It seemed as though as soon as Brammo came...

    Ted, I hope you are including a discussion about the Electric Motorsport company in your new book. As an early adopter of two of their half-baked electric motorcycles, I would sure like to know how...

    I like the concept. It reminds me of how Buell tensioned their final belt drive, but I believe their tensioner was located below the belt run. However, you do have to ask yourself why such a...
