    Hi Guys,

    It seems to me that the general notion is that we are the primary "target of opportunity" out there on the roads. Clothing aside, I think we could take a page from the history of the U.S....

    Hi Ladies,

    I've been reading this thread with interest. When my Pop bought me my first two-wheeled vehicle (1959 Lambretta) in 1963, I had no idea that bikes would be such a huge part of my life....

    Hi Guys,

    I guess "to each her own", or words to that effect. I love both of my airheads, love riding them, and working on them. I also love both my old (Meridan) Bonnevilles and my '66 BSA--talk...

    Hi tvrla,

    Hmmm, I'm not sure. In the center of the cup is a recessed area, in which I can see the brass center. In the middle of that, there is a thin shaft, but it seems to extend very slightly...

    R80/7 speedo rebuild?

    Hi Guys,

    Apologies if this has been covered--I didn't see anything about it. About two years ago my speedo on my R80 pegged itself and quit working, in the middle of a trans-America ride. The...

    Hi All,

    I've been riding in the dirt around home for a long time, but I tend to "cow-trail"---just puttering along on the only dirt bike I have left, a 1966 BSA Victor. We're both a bit older, and...

    Hi Ladies (and Gents),

    Way back when the crust of the Earth was cooling, my father got me a 1959 Lambretta LD125 scooter. I was in high school when he brought the thing home, and it looked like...

    Hi Ladies,

    A bit of part-crashing, for which I apologize, but I saw a couple of Washington State posts, and the bit about Harley's caught my eye also.

    Sigh....I guess I bit the dust. These came from an independent bike shop, and were only $60.00. So I guess I have a "custom" BMW.

    Rats. Now I'll *never* learn the secret handshake.......:violin

    Hi Guys,

    Well, to tell the truth, I'd love a heated vest or jacket, but my cardiologist told me no...it might interfere with my defibrillator. Always something, but at least my hands will be nice...

    Hi Guys,

    Well, I did it. Millie, my 1979 R8o/7 now sports heated hand grips. I know, I know---I'm so ashamed. But *SO* nice and warm in the fingers after about 120 miles of low 40's temps!

    OK, I've built Airheads before, engine work, drive-train work, and I've built dozens of British bikes, so this is embarrassing, but that's sometimes good for the soul, so here it is: I...

    Hi Everybody,

    My name is Barb, and I ride. Lots, at least by my standards. I have a 1979 R80/7 named Millie, because compared to my other bikes she is "Thoroughly Modern". I just picked up a 1976...
