Re: What's Happening Today?

about 344 miles total and I would have rode the Mighty CT 70 but... ...but you're not a masochist. I cannot imagine what 344 miles on a CT 70 would feel like, in fact you probably wouldn't be left with any feeling at all (in your arms, legs, back, ass, head... etc... etc...) :D :D :D I joke about r...

Re: What's Happening Today?

once home from henry's I moved the safari minivan so I could put the trash bin out at the curb. then I went to the garage so I could measure the kickstand on both CT 70, the one on the gold bike seemed longer but both are the same length. seeing that I had a clear path out of the yard I went riding,...

Re: What's Happening Today?

while installing new skids on my toro 824 last year I broke one of the bolts that holds the skids on, today I replaced the broken bolt. seeing that the work on the toro didn't take as long as I thought I did a little work on the gold CT 70. I installed the side stand and seat hinge, I still got a ch...

Re: Poor Boy vs Stator Replacement

when I had my 1200 aspy I knew that when the stator went it would be replaced with a poorboy kit. I had help from my friend junkyard john, we did the install at his shop and he dropped the motor ( I wasn't there at the time ) and checked everything cause I told him that I was giving the 1200 wing to...

Re: iron butt rides

Is a 1000 mile trip one way considered IBR or what is the minimum distance? seeing that you are planning the route you can plan a one way trip or a loop but your loop has to start and end at the same location. being in Michigan the IBA has a ride around lake superior, lake Michigan, lake huron, and...

Re: iron butt rides

1500 miles in 24 or 30 hours? You are a glutton for punishment. That's some major cruising there. An ideal BBG run consist of a cruising speed of 70 mph and stopping for gas every 310 miles. Each stop last just 10 minutes. Total time 22:58:44, total miles 1550, you always want to add a few cushion ...

Re: No Ethanol Fuel

the gas station nearest to me with ethanol free gas is about eight miles from my house, I don't make it there on a bike very often but I do put a couple of gas cans in the tintop and fill those for the OPE if i'm going that way

Re: What's Happening Today?

It must be different where you are. Where I am, as soon as it starts to snow, they send out all the trucks to salt the hell out of the roads. There is NO WAY I'd ride in that and get that salt spray in everything. My bike is grounded until we get a good rain to wash away the salt. it was just a lit...

Re: What's Happening Today?

kind of cold out, I only had time to install the lift handle and replace a few of the downtube / cradle bolts on the mighty CT 70. I think the rear of the bike looks better with the 4.00- 10 tire on it, it had a 3.50- 10 on it when I bought it

Mighty CT 70 is 6v so I can't hook up heated gear :)
You could always pour petrol on your jacket, and set it on fire.
wouldn't have made it down the block like that before the fire went out

Re: What's Happening Today?

well I didn't go riding today I went out and got the luggage rack installed on the Mighty CT 70 then rode down the street to my buddy's house and switched rear wheels, it also gave me a chance to try out the luggage rack. oh I also installed new rear brake shoes
