    Rear Rack

    So, after exploring the (few) aftermarket rear racks and looking at various options, I want to see if there is any interest in a rack that I'm envisioning. The goal would be to come up with one made here in the US (in deference to Hitchcock's shipping rates), is stout enough to handle a...

    Dogs and puppies...

    We have a Chocolate Lab, Smokey Peat (as in whisky). We adore him, but it just seems he needs a playmate. So we're getting another one. We get to go see/meet him next weekend - Woo-hoo! - but he won't come home for a few more weeks. He was whelped 5 weeks ago, so 3 more weeks. We've decided to...

Please feel free to use this in any way you see fit. I am certainly open to adding and amending to this file. Simply post here or PM...

    Trolls

    I think our forum should start to introduce some stricter security measures to block the trolls that seem to be popping up more often. Just sayin'.... OG

    My last bike

    Before I bought the Himmie last year, this was the last bike I rode. A Honda Hawk GT 650, bored to 750cc, mechanical fuel injection, 12:1 Arias pistons and cams from a Daytona racer named Keyo Wantanabe. It was a hell of a lot of fun to ride. The acceleration for the first 3/4 mile (up to 150mph...

    40 Tooth Sprocket group buy

    Hi all. Any interest in a group buy on a 40 tooth rear sprocket? Quantity 1-4 is $74.99ea. plus $11.00 shipping (within US). If we order 5 or more at the same time, the price drops to $62.99 plus shipping, which beats Hitchcocks price by a bunch. They will be custom made by a well-known US...

    Service questions

    So, I did my 300 mile service yesterday and only had a couple of head-scratchers from the check list. First, does anyone know what they want in terms of lubricating the swingarm pivot? Didn't find any sort of grease fitting or oiling point. And second, where the H*** is the "Internal Fuel...

    Testing the ABS

    Since we're having our first warm weather this week up here in the NW, I decided to do my commute on the Himmy yesterday (~80 miles round trip). Less than 1/2 mile from my driveway, a dual-box gravel truck decided to make me test the ABS. It works, thank god! Got a pretty good stoppy out it too...

    Hitchcocks Himma Windscreen

    I just received & installed the taller windscreen from Hitchcocks. Fits great and obviously very easy to install. But the great thing is that I ordered it late Sunday night (Jan. 27) and it arrived today. Many US suppliers can't do that, so I'm impressed. Oldguy Bill

    Finally! A Ride - Any ride!

    I picked up my Himmi a little over a week ago, but since my wife had to work most of that week, I had to trailer it home. Got it into the garage, and then the rain (lots of rain!) started. Being the old fart that I am, I sat it out. I got to ride up and down my driveway (1/4 mile) a few times...

    Western Washington

    Since NW Moto/Triumph of Seattle seems to be selling a fair number of RE's in this neck of the woods, I thought a section for Western WA would be in order. So if you're on the forum yet, give a shout-out if you're anywhere between Olympia and Bellingham. OldGuy Bill
