I only have one, but I can't resist looking at others.    :popcorn:

Trailer tires interchangeable with the bike tires?

  Bike tire bigger  now.   But the strange part rear bike tire has 11,600 miles, I would say at least 1/2 of it left.

My reply above was a copy and paste from your post in my intro thread... it was meant to be a joke. I guess it looses some of it humor when I... have... to... expl... oh, never mind.   :D

Indians are nice bikes. I'm just not a fan of the retro look and fringe. Any bike that keeps you riding is good in my book!

I do like the retro look but I'm with you about fringe's.  Plus the bike is darn comfortable to ride two up.  I'm loving it.

Here's my second bike short list:

Triumph T120 Boneville
Kawi Z900
BMW R Nine T

OR

VMAX: This scratches the toy car/ muscle car itch in a nice way too. Really do not have the room for a third car presently, so I am leaning in the direction of a vmax.

O.C. that is an incredible group of bikes. I love those Kawasaki triples. My buddy bought one second hand in high school knowing nothing about them. We were all shocked at how fast it was.

This would be my second Gen II vmax. It's probably the most entertaining bike I have ever owned. The sound, the torque, the look and feel all collaborate to give the feeling you are atop a 426 hemi musclecar. It puts a grin on my face every time.   

Not sure I prefer the all black paint scheme over last years red with polished scoops, etc. Good news is there are lots of new older models languishing. It's not a strong seller, and it's done in Europe. I would guess it's days here are numbered.

Current stable in addition to the '10 C14:

'75 Honda Trail 90 with a '10 125cc Lifan Chinese clone engine and an Igloo top case.

'07 Suzuki DR650SE

'76 Suzuki GT750 Le Mans (aka water buffalo)


Previous: First "bike" was a heavy Cushman scooter frame ('48?) that I push walked home 4 miles. I mounted a small Briggs & Stratton to it, and then quickly toasted the centrifugal clutch because I didn't have enough gear reduction on it. I should have used a jack shaft with more reduction on it but I didn't even know what that was back then. It was sort of like starting out in 4th gear using an automatic clutch. Still I got some two wheeled "mileage" (probably a couple of tenths) going up and down the alley out of it before the clutch smoked and crumbled to pieces.

..then, '66 Kawasaki 85cc J1T that I purchased from an Aldens catalog. It was an ugly maroon color and came with whitewall tires and a high mount scrambler pipe. Quite the ugly combination.
'68 Bridgestone 350 GTR, my first GTR! At the time a most advanced bike and still fondly remembered. I replaced the skinny 3.50 rear tire with a 4.00 inch tire and it then looked as fast as it was.
Then the motocross bug hit me, '67 Husquvarna 250; '72 CZ 400 ; ..and missing the pavement..'72 Suzuki GT550...
......followed by a multi decade absence from motorcycling :(.... ending in 2010.  :)
