    Stopped at Indian in Miami FL today

    I was interested in seeing the FTR 1200, but the salesman said he doesn't expect bikes delivered until March or April. Six months to wait? Or more? Reports of the bike's arrival are not happening! :ummm: He said he already had 5 deposits. At this pace, Indian will see Jared Mees win his #3...

    A odd IT moment today.

    An odd IT moment today. So our level 2 support team reaches out to me to help with a user who isn't happy with their service. The user is a scientist from Germany who is angry the emails he's sending to his work email from his home email are getting quarantined and not reaching his Inbox. I...

    Got a call from the "IRS" today.

    Strange.. The "IRS" agent who called me this morning and told me the police were coming to arrest me barely spoke English. After calling him every foul name I could think of, he hung up. Then I remembered a few more and called him back six times to be certain I didn't miss any. Then it got...

    Godzilla hit 33 today.

    33 years ago today, I picked the bike up at the dealer. $5395 new, and 0.4 miles on the odometer. I never would have believed I'd still be riding it after so many years and miles. Hopefully, we both have many more good years and miles to ride.

    Broke down today

    Well, having nice ride today in NYS Bear Mountain, just leaving from taking a leak (TMI???) revved up a little high in 1st gear and heard a few pops from the exhaust. Bike shut down. No matter what I did it would not start up. It would crank over fine,, but it seems like there is no spark. I'll...

    450-Mile Ride Today + Possible Fuel Pump Issues

    I synced my carbs and installed new rear brake pads this morning, and headed south 200 miles to Dallas, TX - just for fun. Perfect weather! BUT... on the way back, after about 70 miles, I felt the engine lose a couple cylinders, followed by the rest. I coasted to the side of the road (in the...

    Thankful - Long Ride Today

    After replacing the rear valve cover gasket and adding COPs ignition, I headed for Texas to visit an Air Force Base I was assigned to for school (Sheppard AFB) 30 years ago this year. Mr. Max ran good all the way. No leaks. Even messed with a Hellcat Challenger a little. We both exited, and I...

    Today on "This Old VMAX"

    As y'all know, I've done a lot of stuff already to my 99 and it is still ongoing. As you may recall from previous posts I have been getting terrible mileage from the bike. She finally runs reliably but just drinks a shit ton of fuel and I always smell gas. I had flirted with the idea of taking...

    Hungarian Technical Inspection Completed Today - Some Weirdness

    I took the V-Max to the shop today for my 2-year inspection. Being that Hungary used to be a Communist country, they still have a lot of strict laws - no liberty for modification... kind of like California. But I digress... After passing the inspection, I rode the bike home and noticed some...

    Today is a good day

    I took the cover off my Vmax, disconnected the Battery Tender Jr. and slide it out to the middle of my garage on the new improved motorcycle dolly I bought last summer. I wheeled the Vmax off the dolly and put one of my rear wheel stands on, now it sits waiting until tomorrow to get a good...

    And I turned 67. It's also the 50th anniversary of me buying my first bike.

    Out and about today... nice day

    A little wind but nothing to sneeze at. My oldest son came to visit for spring break. Took a couple of pics of his iron beast. It's a 2011 Nightster 1200. It's a lightweight.

    Added some LED s today...

    Spent a few hours cutting and soldering the strips together, running them under stuff on the bike and figuring out the wiring. Got done except for wrapping some wires with black stuff... ran battery down in the process. I think it's was weak due to lack of use anyway.

    Today's joke-don't underestimate an Old Geezer

    An old geezer became very bored in retirement and decided to open a medical clinic. He put a sign up outside that said: "Dr. Geezer's clinic. Get your treatment for $500, if not cured, get back $1,000." Doctor "Young," who was positive that this old geezer didn't know beans about medicine...
