impressive, theres a jap police one somewhere where theyre doing the same kind of thing but on jap multis and at a more fenetic speed. i suppose that if you are riding the same bike all day every day for work, then you get more attuned to just how far you can push it, and leaning it onto the footboards in corners must help!!

Surprised at you John. I thought you were longer in the tooth and wiser than that. Those floor boards are pivoted and are not used to lean the bike on to. That would only lift the rear wheel with some not very good results.
P.S. Good luck in "Round Britain II"

yes i know, you misunderstand me, what i meant was when you lean it onto the footboards, you have an idea of how far you have gone over, when them guys are going so quickly in such a confined space, theres no time to look up and judge precisely how far youve gone over, especially if youre flicking it from side to side, but if you practice riding it till the boards touch then its going to be pretty easy to keep it leant at that precise angle, cos you can feel as well as hear the boards scraping.

whats 'round britain 2' ???? i suspect you have mistaken me for someone even longer in the tooth than i actually am!!

I started off on a 4,000 mile trip around the coast from the severn bridge and trying to keep the sea in sight on the right as much as possible..I left Wales on the 18th and it pissed down all the way to Ilfracombe..on the 19th the rain stopped playing games and came down in bucketfuls all the way to Penzance, and on the third day it rained even more pushed by wind and buffetted by any trucks that passed from the other direction all the way to Torquay...The oil pump packed up at Torquay and the RAC took it back to Wales for me...The most interesting parts of the trip were Porlock Hill which I could have rowed up and Countisbury hill which I couldn't hang glide off because the rain would have weighed the glider down too much.

Don't tell me the views were good, I had rain inside my visor, outside my visor and all over my body..I even discovered at what point of dilution leather disolves..

Anyway the bike is stripped down in my garage waiting for the 9 parts it needs which will arrive on thursday, and I am going to try again the other way round when I have repaired and tested the max.

John.

Not bad riding , but it does help having stabilisers , oh my mistake they where exhausts , its almost impossible to drop one of those it'll just lean onto its oversized fat bloated belly of pig iron. Now the jap version , now thats impessive thay go much faster with the same kind of test track , just can,t get it on the site due to my lack of computer skills, somone help me out and show the masses what our jap friends are doing can't have people thinking that yanks being good at anthing other than eating.

Neither of those clips were as tough/tight manoeuvring riding skills as the first clip in this thread. Not that I'm bias.

Well i managed to put mine on its side a couple of times....does help with having the steering head rearward of the yolks tho...they may be big old lumps with nicknames like Tractor,Bus,Fag glide etc..but if your capable you can have a good scratch about on em...them sportsbike rangers get the wobbles on when a big smokin glide comes under em ont roundabouts...also several years ago ..ex GP rider Paul Lewis (aka.. the angry ant ) threw down a challenge to all road riders to a lap of Mallory park...he was willing to put himself on a glide for a one lap sprint ..the wager involved was a few thousand i believe..... as i'm aware nobody took up the challenge.

[QUOTE=knuckle;615896]So what was the last Harley that you owned youi seem very knowledgeable?




I've worked on enough to learn better than to get one , and in my madness earlier this year when i was seriously thinking of buying one the local dealership soon talked me out of it with the price of extras just to make the damb thing usable. Stuck to triumph in the end , was'nt based on a ww2 water pump.with the name Knuckle we all know your loyalty but at least thats better than the old shovel that i was last aqaunted with. Each to there own fella , might get one when i retire and need a new lifestyle at least then my dog can have a harley coller and bowl .

He was working at the Berkshire Harley dealership when it was in Maidenhead a few years ago. On open days he wouild wheelie various Harleys down the road.

I was told,
a guy on a CBR 600 made some coment about how slow Harleys were Paul challenged him to a race. Apparently he said that the guy could pick what Harley Paul would ride and the winner got the losers bike, he didn't take him up on the offer.

That could be an old wives tale though.
