Re: Use an auto tire on the front wheel of a trike?

A few years ago I had a 1993 gl1500 aspy. Had a lot of miles on that bike. Started out with stock tires.....phhtttttt ! Then had a radial on the rear and bias ply on the front, no problems at all. later I had a bias ply on the rear and a radial on the front. No problems with that either. The last se...

Re: Bloody Hell just look at this !!

Whoahhh. Let's hope just a one-in-ten-thousand bad casting, but you'd think they would be ultrasonically tested for integrity/critical flaws in production. Didn't BMW have some failures similar to this with their cantilever front suspension? I think that might have been corrosion at the bottom of t...

Re: Bloody Hell just look at this !!

First off it's NOT my bike but I have just seen this on another post and it scared the pants off me, apparently the guy was riding down the road and felt the steering a bit strange so started to brake and slow down, He never got to a stop because this happened!! Looking closely at the front you can...

Re: Looking for front shock info

1995 aspencade new to me and I checked air pressure in the front shocks. Previous owner had them somewhere around 10-15 psi. Manual calls for 6 psi max. I find it hard to get 6 psi in there as when you check it you lose most of your pressure. Any tricks to this or do you run a higher pressure? Than...

Re: Question About Modern Day Camping

I agree with 548 somewhat, a motorhome has nothing to do with camping. Motorhomes and caravan have dedicated fields, requiring hook ups etc, they also destroy flat ground, making it unsuitable for tents.. Even when campsites are full regarding motorhomes and caravans, there is always plenty of room...

I have attached the projected plan, what do you see that we should do differently? My wife is all about waterfalls, and the such. Looks like the record high temperature...

Re: Question About Modern Day Camping

Don't forget the free camping in the Indian owned casino parking lots. Most will let you stay for free and there is a security guard that makes rounds through the parking lot on a regular basis. Most of them serve pretty good food for a reasonable price if ya want to do that sort of thing. I don't ...

For years, I have just been strapping my tent and air mattress in my backseat and the rest of the gear fits easily in the trunk leaving the saddlebags open. Last year, I add...

Re: Question About Modern Day Camping

I pull an older kwik Kamp trailer, I pull it with my wing and my 4x4 and I have never had a problem setting it up in a tent site. I do not camp in reservation only camp grounds or KOA's. I do not like those kind of amenities. Might as well stay home. For me BLM and state camps are the best. I would ...

Re: Craigslist woes !

Dang.... now wingadmin is at it to. And to think all I wanted was to know why Craigslist was removing my adds.
Must have something to do with flexing aluminum to much or the suppressed mid west motorcycle market.
I am so lucky to get all these free lessons. :|

Will a 94 seat fit easily on a 93. I would like something a little closer to the ground. I am not 100% sure but I think the 1500 seats were all the same , only about 99.9 % sure. Maybe someone who knows 100% sure they would fit will chime in. On the old 93 I had the seat foam kinda broke down after...

Re: seat height

Out of curiosity, what color is your seat? I want to say the stock seat I bought might be from a 93 or older, it's brown as well. I'm Not sure how many colors the wing came with in 1994 but my SE is that two tone red color and the seat is a redish brown. More brown then red. My older 1993 aspy was ...
