    Some type of custom Vmax

    Everyone has different tastes so I'm not knocking the guy but my only question is - why? Looks like he has flat slides but why in the world does it sound like that - something ain't right. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AQ5J_wxGfLE

    Hose clamps spring steel type

    I had purchased some new hoses for the max. They fit well and seem of decent quality. The only problem is they do not include the spring tension clamps used on the connection from the heads.

    Motorcycle crash rate by type

No other bike had killed so many riders, as a percentage og production numbers (I know that bikes don't kill by them self but that's how it was presented to me). I've been trying to find statistics about bike types and...
