From the official HD press release:

Quote
..As each Harley-Davidson Softail motorcycle declares its styling independence with exclusive components and inspired craftsmanship, the Cross Bones is a bold addition to an already free-spirited family. Many features of the Cross Bones and other Softails are reminiscent of restless riders of the past, whose defiant attitude resonates with those who march to their own beat in any generation...

 :D

Those handlebars look too far forward or something in that image. It doesn't look as bad in some of the other pics.

That is a seriously nice bike. I imagine it is an awesome ride on some twisty tarmac...

Hi Hoony,

I'd be interested to get to the swap meet on Saturday, we'll see...

Yep, I'm planning to ride VIPER this year (or as many rounds as I can anyway). Are you?

General Discussion / Re: WHY CANT VMX BE 96DB???
« on: January 14, 2008, 10:28:02 AM »
Sadly, all of these arguments are preaching to the converted. Noise limits are ultimately aimed at keeping the general public happy. The general public doesn't care if a bike was made in 2007 or 1967, for the most part they don't want to listen to it.

It isn't fair, but encroaching population means that a lot of motocross tracks are getting closer and closer to urban development all the time. I hope I'm wrong, but I belive a 96db limit is inevitable.

No doubt the road racers are worried. If we end up with a 96db limit, then it's only a matter of time before MA says "well, the VMX boys have been meeting 96db for awhile now, so you can too."

Great photos, thanks. My favourite is the first one, with the dirty bikes. You can tell that someone has been having some fun on that Maico...

General Discussion / Re: how did evel kenivel get his name
« on: December 13, 2007, 12:33:38 AM »
I assume everyone on this forum knows he died recently?

Evel is a modified version of "evil", which is a moniker he picked up in his young, wild days. He changed the spelling later on.

What about a rear guard for a PE175C/N? Any yellow brush guards? PM me if so!

Thanks

How long is the DVD? Does it cover all of the 2007 rounds? Most importantly, does anyone know if copies are still available?!

Nah, no spare mufflers that'd be anything close to road friendly, if I did you could have it! What about modifying a standard PE175 item, for example adding some extra baffling?

The KTM suggestion is a good one.

If you're not too concerned about period look, what about a standard muffler from a two stroke trail/ag bike? Say for example a stock muffler from a Yamaha DT200/230? A standard muffler from a 2 stroke ag bike would probably be very quiet, but also might be a bit restrictive...

General Discussion / Bendigo Swap Meet

The Bendigo Swap Meet is on this weekend. Has anyone here been before? If so, is there usually any bike stuff? Looks to be mostly for cars from what I can gather...

But Don't the Viper Club only have Evo Pre 85  and Now Pre 90

VIPER has several Pre 80 classes, a Pre 78 class, two Pre 85 classes and Pre 90. It works very well in my opinion.

Tex would remember.

Er, maybe he won't. (Tex was pretty young in '82)  ::)

I'm very interested in the second photo though. It was taken at Cooper Park, right? (If not, then where?) Cooper Park has been closed for years. Do you have many other photos from Casterton?
