    adaptive cruise, collision avoidance tech and motorcyclist mortality.

    I watch with anticipation as auto companies roll out cars with accident avoidance technology and prototype many other new technologies to compensate for the growing surplus of innatentive and impaired drivers. Cars that "see" hazards and react without driver input, how many of our fallen fellow...

    Race Tech Spring Swap

    I have the 1.0 Race Tech front springs and they are just too stiff for my weight. According to the Race Tech website, I should have the .90 rated springs. Part of the problem is I have lost 37 pounds (187 to 150) but I think the 1.0 was probably too heavy even for my previous weight. So...

    Race Tech Spacer length

    OK, got my new Race Tech springs for my 85 Vmax and they are significantly shorter than my factory springs. I had to make 10" long spacers to make up the difference. Is this normal? I got the S3234-100.

    VMax engine tech from ditched Harley project?

    A guy I work with was "schooling" me on the v4 engine and Vboost tech. He claimed that Harley was designing the new v4 in the late 70's and scrapped it selling some of the patents to Honda who then sold the tech info to Yamaha. Speculation or truth to this?
