Re: Tire SafeGuard TPMS

Definitely will be going with the bolt in valves and going to try the straight stubbies. As much as the bush tangling in the rear tire of my bike was a real freak incident it happened. Of course there is no way I can prove the 90 degree valve even contributed to the event it was damaged and even if ...

Re: Insta Motorcycle Tow by BillyBob1

I have towed my 2006 Jeep Commander behind my RV it also has a little button that you push that zeros or neutralize the transmission which of course is the torque converter and allows the axled to free spin. I definitely don't really know how well that will work on the wings if you put them in neutr...

Re: Tire SafeGuard TPMS

I will be going with the short bolt ons I don't want any more 90s on my bike ever again I just posted an issue with the 90-degree valve stem especially the ones with combination rubber / steel . in any case I do believe that the 90-degree valve stems do cause a balance issue and they're damn sure a ...

Re: Insta Motorcycle Tow by BillyBob1

I fully agree 100% on what you're stating it's more from common sense then anything else the final drive gear is pushing the driveshaft on the goldwing instead of vice versa of course is also happens to take place when your downshifting going downhill or blah blah blah but it's not something that I ...

Re: Insta Motorcycle Tow by BillyBob1

Must say that's a really great idea I would put a backup camera on it so you could keep an eye on your bike in case you have a blowout or something you don't carry your rear rim to pieces before you know it. If you happen to know of any it will actually hold the whole motorcycle of 1,500 is about 83...
