With all this talk and new bikes coming into the fold I'm getting the FEVER!!!!!!,,, so the search is started anew for a clean low mile bmw r1150r,,,,,really miss mine since I sold like an idiot,,,gotta pick up another,,,,asap
You and me both Borg. I'm seeing cheap 250 dual sports online and used Japanese bikes on Craigslist. I started using the wife's bike last summer, while she's battling, to keep the dust off it. It's stirred the urge again. I never should have sold the W650.
Great bike!! the v star is an excellent machine,,,how'd you deal with the shaft?,,convert it to chain? to transmit power to the third member that is?,,,,Oh and welcome back MaGoo,,,i was thinking about you the other day,,,,i was hoping you were ok,,,Please post a pick or two,,,i'd like to see how the conversion was done,,,thanks
Yep been gone for a while. am in Oklahoma now and yes I drove the trike 75 and 80 all day long from Florida. What a nice machine... I do ride it as a cycle too, the kit was custom made in Florida and 4 bolts and she is off. I find the V Star 1100 is very well balanced and have put over 3,000 miles on her before the kit was made. I have no issues with the 3 wheels in the rear. When this rear tire wears I will put a car tire on the bike as I did on the Silver wing
Yes about the V Star being a great ride. I only ride trike due to health issues. A ride on a trike is nothing like a bike ride but than it is not bad, what can I say I love scooters and motor cycles and now it's trike time in my life.
Right on Alley... We have a lot of trikes in Florida mostly elderly as you and I are and some unable to ride 2 wheels for health reasons as we also are. Bummer as it is we still have a blast. With that said I still want to try and ride the V Star from here to Florida but than what do I do about the kit??
Said it before and I'll say it once again,,, if disability or age or both get to me I'd have a trike in a heartbeat,,,,, as Alley just said,,, gotta have that wind in my face,,, been crappy and cold/raining on and off here for a few days so I haven't been riding,,, I miss it,, I ride tomorrow thank goodness
Cyborg the rain has been really bad here too. I had to follow the radar and watch my route weather until I found a window of no rain to make the trip last week from Florida. Had a day of cold in the am one day but all rain clear. Enjoy the wind today
