Re: Riders Ex-race bike for sale again

Deposit taken apparently https://ebay.us/UO2zmg. Bugger. I wish I'd test ridden it. I thought the virus would push the price down.

Re: Riders Ex-race bike for sale again

Maybe the steering damper wouldn't be needed if you didn't have wide bars?

Re: Riders Ex-race bike for sale again

Another question: the Riders bike's done 3500 miles, presumably all of it extreme thrashing. What effects would that have? A shorter engine life, leaks, major repairs in the future...???

Re: Riders Ex-race bike for sale again

Apart from fitting lighter parts, what else was done to lighten the race bikes? I've read that people who convert a Sportster into a cafe racer sometimes shed a huge amount of weight with an angle grinder.

Re: Riders Ex-race bike for sale again

Oh dear, that could make it a non-starter! Could it be remedied by removing the lock stops?

Re: Riders Ex-race bike for sale again

What's it like for mad courier filtering in London? Terrible steering lock? Too wide?

Re: Riders Ex-race bike for sale again

What are the downsides in daily use, as a general runabout and for touring? Short range I suppose?

Re: Riders Ex-race bike for sale again

Well that sounds very promising...I was assuming it would be painful to be around. Also, I've just calculated that the power to weight ratio is a tiny bit better than my current bike, a K1100RS. Which is not exactly a hyperbike, but if I had more power the issue would be 100 coming up the whole time...

That's a kind offer but I'm hardly ever in Yorkshire. Which is a pity, I used to have a friend near Helmsley. Awesome biking country, I went to see him on my RSV Mille once.
