:lol: I forget when people say Harley, they mean an MT! You should do a thread if you haven't already, that front fairing is going to be pretty interesting!

And obviously, you'd have to be more than 7' tall to see over the top of the screen....

That's just your perspective, we all look 7' tall to you.

which one?

I forgot about the crate in the background as it's actually the same bike.

All. That one bike does everything I need. Mitts come off during the summer, pannier frames stop it falling over too far when I'm off road, sheep comes off when I'm travelling local, all my camping gear fits on it. ;)
Does it go tho and have an mot

Going through a 'Can't be bothered with them at the moment' phase. As you do.

What you really need is.....

Husaberg 400/500 for the off road stuff.
Yamaha dragstar for the long touring rides.
Yamaha divvy for the daily work ride.

All crap, all cheap. Run them, break them, scrap them and buy another.

I'm pretty happy with my bike, but if money was no issue, I'd want to build/have someone to make me a 1208 parallel twin like how Allen Millyard builds his Japanese multi cylinder engines, out of two 604 engines. I reckon this would be a mad engine!
I also fancy one of the Woods dohc water cooled heads, because why the hell not..
I'm also a sucker for the ktm 450 rally bike, so it would take some inspiration looks wise from this :D

Search the forum on key word 'Drag Strip' You'll find a topic started by Arceye in 2009

An 885 Triumph in an MT500 for drag strip use. Needless to say he upgraded the standard brakes. I've no idea if two 604 engines have more or less power at the back wheel

It had to be speed demon Arceye who attended the event😊
