MKP, did you put rings and bearings in that boat anchor yet?

Get it right Carl, a boat anchor is a big block Chevy!

I used to own an original 427 Chevy Hi-Perf block that I was going to chain to my bumper with a sign that said "Boat Anchor" just to piss people off at car shows that only have small blocks ;)

Is everyone else experiencing really odd weather? I know a few on here are from the midwest. It was 66 Sunday, then 52 yesterday, now it's 38 and going  down to 24 tonight, rain, sleet and snow later today. I know the old saying…."if you don't like Indiana weather, hang around it will change"

that quote is a rip off on Ohio weather :)Roger
And KC weather I might add. I would guess many other locals as well.70's here Sat, Sun, Moday; 40's today, 60's remainder of week. A very easy winter so far. Hopefully we sneak through March with no ice/wet, heavy snows and we are good to go. April's usually very nice with a few hiccups along the way. Then May with enough confidence in the weather to bike down to Hope.
Man, that's a lot of pedaling! ;)Roger

Big, strong legs. Just pace yourself.

No thanks!

I'm not 20 any more, I'd rather take my V-Max ;)

I remember when that bike came out in 1985 and I was 22 years old. I wanted one bad in 1985 but I'm over it now LOL. I ride a HD Tour Glide these days. Not quite the takeoff. :)

I'm kind of an idiot,

I dumped an additional $27,000 in modifications to a bike I couldn't possibly sell for $10,000, but I like it.....for short trips only :)

Well, your avatar name is "twistedcrankcammer" ya know. You should have a Vmax.

I added ported heads, aftermarket flat slide 39mm carbs via V-Gas intake, a set of pipes, a braced and chromed 3 inch over swing arm with 3 inch over chrome moly drive shaft, a set of billet rims, 200 rear tire vs: 150 stock, nitrous and an air shifter, plus all aftermarket retardable ignition, with hotter coils, bigger charging system and 8.5mm MSD wires for starters :)

Next to no performance gain for that kind of coin.

If I dumped any more money in it would be to build a big bore and or turbo engine :)

Sometimes I'm still tempted a little when I see an older 80s Vmax in the sub $2K range. Another one I wanted was that KZ1000. Never got one though.

I did own 600, 1200, 1300, 1600cc bikes. I'm on my 10th scooter right now. Probably should be my last too. :)
