First to stay on topic
We made the ride yesterday. Susan was a bit more comfortable, because I took the windjammer off, & mounted a fork mount windshield .We did roughly 60 miles on the expressway, at 70-75 mph,at around70-75 degrees. Susan's trike performed great. Staying in the low to mid, normal range. We did some around town driving after the rally, & her bike got pretty hot (the temp got up over 90
). We took the e-way about halfway back.Her ride started running a bitover
the normal range :realshocked:. We stopped to let the bikes cool off, & get a little somethingfor us
I've got an air scoop that I'm going to put on the front, to try & get more air flow across the radiator
. I also plan on changing the thermostat as well.
I really like the idea about the fans.... I'll have to see what I can do, because the Vetter lowers don't provide for venting of the heat from the radiator.:crying:
Something else that I'm sure is a factor: With the car rear end, the trike turns about a grand higher than my wing. But I don't think it's enough to make it run that hot....
To get off topic for a moment:
Boy I stirred a wasp nest didn't I.:jumper:
Yes, the numbers do lie! Because if you look carefully, you'll see that there are not just one, not just two, but multiple sets of numbers. And some of these multiples are coming from the same places.
At yesterday's rally, there was a District Attorney from Detroit. HE stated that in the "defective equipment cases" (like the incident that STD's????:realshocked:
As far your tax dollars being spent on something you don't want: Welcome to democracy.:byebye:I could buy a brand new Wing with the money that the federal government keeps from me each year (that would be cool to get a new bike each year), and a lot of it's going to things that I don't approve of.:doh:
So in closing:
I've had a motorcycle endorsement for thirty years. Riding without a helmet is not something new to me, & I wish to exercise my Freedom & Personal Liberty
by riding my motorcycle without a helmet.
It's like one State Representative said yesterday, "No one kept me from joining the military because it could be hazardous to my health!"
I know it' a heated subject, & I will post no more about it here. If someone wants to start a new thread, I might add to it........... :baffled:
