Buddy has one...biggest complaint he has...rear tire doesn't last, he gets roughly 6500 on a tire, the torque eats them.

69 is fine, but 77 is for those who love to dine

Dave,
There is considerable damage to my bike...the forks are tweeked, pipes are toast and smashed up against the motor, crash bar bent bad, so maybe even frame damage. Almost everything on the left side is either damaged or scratched real bad. Rear fender and supports are damaged as well as handlebars and most of all the controls are scratched-up bad or cracked. Windshield is broken. I plan on taking off the drive, G-man controller and possible the Custom Ostrich Seat and Backrest. So unless, I buy another C50, those items will be for sale soon.

Yup, happy wife = happy life BB. You're a good man takin' one for the team like that.


Hope you're healing up good, and glad to hear you're gettin' back in the saddle again.

cheers,

Hi BigBird, I've been off the site for a fair while, been sitting on a bike more often than on an office chair for a change, only just found out recently that you've taken a tumble. Best wishes pal for a good recovery and lots of satisfaction with your next bike. Great to see you came out of it ok.
