Re: Anyone Ride a Motorcycle?

Had to give up the riding due to a stroke that left me with a major balance problem (vestibular neuritis). It broke my heart to sell my '98 Triumph Thunderbird Sport.

Hello and thanks!

I just signed up and want to thank you all for the great information I have found here. I have a 1971 and a 1973. One of them is going to a good friend, not sure which one. I installed the Wolf hammer springs in both and I am delighted with the results. I have my Lee casting mold and the Lee die set...
