yeah a dual sport Harley is pretty cool.

He is working on a new tank and wind deflector for it next.

Lots of cool frankenbuilds on Advrider. Most are kinda dual sport inspired. Some great functional

What I want to know is … how did a thread titled "rusty bimmer" evolve into a discussion about things that are neither rusty nor bimmers?

Kn.

When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity.

When many people suffer from a delusion, it is called religion.

Just saw this on a car forum - goodbye camshafts, hello torque and fuel efficiency. Imagine how much this is going to make them in licensing the patents. :drool:

This is one of those things, that when you consider modern tech it's amazing it hasn't been invented yet. Servos have been around for a long time, and yet cars still use camshafts. Definitely a "duh! why didn't I think of that?" moment.

Very excited to see where they go with it.

Bicycles!

Holy shit, the electronic valve actuator. So many people, myself included, going "duhhh that makes SO MUCH sense!"

Dude on a tall bike cracked me up:

Nice in theory and the concept has been around for quite some time.

The only problem is that servos/solenoids tend to stick a little now and then after a few billion cycles. That can get noisy and spendy real quick.

that's just good dumb fun. probably static too, the nutter. is it odd i find this more compelling than the cars surrounding it?
