RE: Motorcycle tent camping trip

I too would like to see some pictures. I have been Coast to Coast to Coast. Downtown NYC. Downtown Fairbanks and many other places. My honeymoon was a 2 week motorcycle trip to Glacier and Canada. We went to UT and CO; each for different 2 week trips. Million Dollar Highway CO Sept 2012 https://live.staticflickr.com/8173/8005116612_a33672d75c_z.jpg That is one awesome bike! Details please !? Thanks. This was my 3rd Harley. It was a 2005 Firefighter Special Road King. I bought it from the Bend, Oregon dealership secondhand. My brother has a full race shop for HD's. He put in 10/5 to 1 pistons and stage 2 heads. I connected up a Thundermax tuner and speedo. Cam and heavy duty easy squeeze clutch. Progressive front shocks and tons of other stuff. It had 76,000 miles on it and had never missed a beat. AK and Coast to Coast. UT, CO and most of the West. I bought a 2013 Victory XCT and road the heck out of that too. It's coming up on 70,000. I do not ride to work on my motorcycles (company work van), so all the miles are pleasure miles. I would love to go the Newfoundland. Maybe some day. I'm cheating now a days. I have a 5th wheel with a garage. We will base camp somewhere and do loops from camp. KEN https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50092842327_5c8309415f_z.jpg Ken those are some serious miles! Sounds like your brother does good work. Bet that RK was a blast to ride. Looked at a Victory Magnum not long ago and really liked it. Think that the XC are very close. I commute on a little Honda Shadow. End up around 15-20k miles per year combined touring and commuting.

RE: Best Place to Sell Tow Vehicle

As others have said FB marketplace I have used Cl for years to buy and sell vehicles and farm machinery. Within the last couple years it seems to have gone down hill

RE: Motorcycle tent camping trip

Wow you guys have ridden some great trips! here are some pics. To get out west I did two 700-800 miles days out and two back. Went all thru New England last year on my 05 Road King. Decided to buy a $1300 old yamaha for this trip. New front tire/ bearings and replaced some seals, fluids, etc. Then let it rip. Could have used a 6th gear tho. Averaged 40mpg even running around 4k rpm. Lost Cruise control when the speedometer cable broke so for the last 1900 miles it was all hand throttle control. Anyway hope you like the pics. Canadian Maritimes, for the next trip. I like using a vintage bike so well see what I can pick up to take on that trip.

Motorcycle tent camping trip

A few weeks ago I did 5400 miles/11 states/ 10 days on a motorcycle and tent camped. To minimize down time I ate one meal a day and started each day at around 4 am. Visited numerous national parks. The bike I took was an unrestored 32 year old Yamaha. It did fine except a broken speedometer cable. Ill post some pics if anyone is interested. Next trip will be Newfoundland and Labrador.

RE: What is included in the tow package on 2019 infinity qx80.

From the research I did on the qx80 other then the hitch/ wiring itself there doesnt seem to be anything else added for a towing package. Here is the 2019 Infinity towing guide admin.owners.infinitiusa.com/content/manualsandguides/common/2019/2019-infiniti-towing-guide.pdf

RE: 8.1L Muffler Recommendations

Yeah thats what all the walker mufflers say is that the dual out was replaced with the single for stock apps. Dynomax makes one part# 17554 specs www.dynomax.com/ultra-flo-welded-x-offset-offset-599.html Check its measurements against yours

RE: 1986 Ford towing guide

Had a 85 F150 with the 5.8/C6 that spent most of its time tied to a livestock trailer. It wouldnt go fast or stop fast. But despite being a turd. It never broke down. Sold it just a few years ago and it was still going strong.

RE: Backing that trailer into a tight campsite..

If you have a place near you that is closed with large empty parking lot and painted lines then go and practice. Warehouse, weigh station , etc. Practice drivers side backing and off side backing. It is a confidence booster. Take so impromptu cones like milk jugs. As u improve use ur cones to make it more challenging. Was never really taught a technique myself just learned by doing trial and error. Boats, stock trailers , flatbeds etc, Then there's hay wagons, ugh.

RE: Newbie needs tow vehicle PSI advice

Dude Id just run 60 in all the time. There is no "one size fits all" in the situation. Over pressuring the tire without enough load will result in poor traction, poor handling, poor braking, excessively hard ride and poor tire wear taking the centers out of the tire. I have a 2020 F250 with load range E, factory door sticker min is 55 PSI but tire can take 80 PSI. However, the empty weight of my F250 is nearly 1,000 lbs HEAVIER than a F150. I typically run 70 in front and 68 in rear when empty. When towing air up to 80 PSI on rear and 78 PSI on front. That 2 lbs differential is because of the weight differences between front and rear when empty and loaded, running same pressure can affect ride and handling. This comes from experience, having owned a 97 Heavy half (light duty F250), 2003 F250, 2006 F250, 2013 F250, 2019 F250, 2020 F250.. But keep in mind what I do for my F250 may not work at all for the OPs vehicle. There has been more than once where some folks have done a "chalk" test on the tires, that is where they spread chalk on the tire then roll the vehicle and check to see how well the chalk transferred to the pavement. Too much air and only chalk in the center transfers, too little air and only the sides transfer. Either way will cause excessive wear on the tire. Something else OP did not consider, Load range E tires are heavier, about 3lbs per tire.. Does not sound like much but that extra weight does impact fuel economy, braking and handling if vehicle was not specifically designed for that. He asked I said Id run 60.

Wait is this some deep philosophical question?
