  1. Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

    Biker Hang-Out
    Humphrey Bogart ... prison escape .... Devil Island ... damn sounds good. Was ready to dig in now, but then I saw a trailer and it's not quite as dark as I had hoped for :)

    The showcase text is mis-formatted. I looks like the intent was to make two columns, but it is all squished together. Like at https://www.triumphrat.net/showcase/bonnieblack.1488/

    Ah, I see that Terry. Well, some people are perpetually spraying. Sure you have a good idea about him too now :D

    You nailed it Scrammy. This is the most tame darkside thread I have ever seen. Heck, we even mixed in some grammar nazi stuff and still are rolling along relatively unscathed!

    Badder Santa is great. But like most Christmas movies, I've seen it too many times and don't want to see it again. I watched American Psycho the other night. There is a Christmas party scene in that, and everyone keeps saying xmas instead of Christmas. That really bothered me, but the rest of...

    I wiped it down with a Lysol sheet afterwards. It was a good day, I was getting a bit embarrassed about my kilt, people kept making fun of it. Problem Solved.

    We will never know if the original DS rider first handed a beer to a friend and said "hold this please", so his redneck status will forever be unknown.
  9. Valve Clearance Adjustment

    Air Cooled Twins Technical Talk
    That's a link to a file on his hard drive, so that won't help. Based on the file's name, I'm gonna guess it is this or something similar. The tool has the advantage over the nut/bolt thing in that it's harder to drop down into the engine bowels.

    Air Cooled Twins Technical Talk
    Cam caps are not interchangable, and you need to keep track of their position and orientation. Don't drop those dowels or the M4 nut down into the motor. Don't over torque the shoulder bolts that hold the cam cover down. Those are the biggest tips I can remember at the moment.

    Yup, 25mm. I get them at the local Honda shop. The younger guys look surprised when the older guy fishes them out from the back of a bottom drawer. They hadn't seen them before. https://www.triumphrat.net/threads/valve-shim-alternatives.133566/

    I have a nut/bolt I use to keep them from unwinding. There's some good stuff here, but some of the pictures have gone missing over the years: https://www.triumphrat.net/threads/12000-mile-service-overview.96205/page-8

    A Very Murray Christmas, about the only thing about Christmas I like. Sipping some bourbon and petting my puppy while the girls are making some cookies in the kitchen doesn't hurt the vibe much at all.

    Clicking on the thread title brings me to the first unread post. There is also a "Jump to Latest" button to the top right of a thread screen. There is an edit link above the post text on the laptop. It's kinda small and grey. On the phone there is three dots with a down arrow, clicking on that...

    You see these pictures of the heavy bikes on darkside tires in the corners, and it's off-putting to see how much tread isn't on the pavement. But, there is just a ton of tread. I really wonder if the contact patch really is that much smaller than if this guy were on a more rounded MC rear tire?
  16. Imported my 2015 Bonneville SE with me to the UK from USA - some advice??

    Air Cooled Twins Talk
    Just to be clear, it's not the bulb you need to replace. It's the entire headlamp/reflector assembly. But a Hella specified for left-hand countries can be had for under $50 I believe, and is a nice upgrade anyways.

    That's an awesome bike. Just what a cool motorcycle looks like. I moved your post into this thread, there's a whole subforum of Twins Tech Talk of picture threads, but it's easy to miss.

    Well, it's about average speed for me a lot of the time. It does get very slow for me. Clicking on the my avatar I very often wait several seconds before the popup appears so I can select "Alerts" or whatever. And a lot of these, especially yesterday. I'm getting more of those errors than we had...
