      “She’s a real looker” the old man croaked at me. I raised my helmet cloaked head up from my task at hand of topping off the gas tank in my 1000 to spy a white haired man in a dusty old Dakar jacket that looked as though it had circumnavigated the globe on Steve McQueen’s back. “Thanks” I...

    Hey guys: It's been awhile, but I'm finally making progress on the big brother of this bike: The new one is a Virago XV920 which has a chain drive and allows me to (with GREAT hassle) use not only the R6 front end, but the rear end as well. Result...big fat tire in back, and matching wheels...
