      Even better, instead of coolant, use ethanol....

        Use a turkey fryer in place of the radiator, so you can be popular at rallies.

          Multi-tasking while you ride good plan.

          Was great riding yesterday had a bunch of riders show up. I spent most of the day leading around a new rider. Josh-Josh crashed on Harley rock nobody has ever crashed on Harley rock before, he must be one hurting unit today

          ... is this site still sick or is it getting better yet?

            (Just remember to NOT use a FROZEN turkey in the fryer, or the whole "delete radiator" issue will be moot)

              ... but won't the frozen turkey provide additional cooling? We might need that thermal advantage if it is a long slow cooking journey.

                        Hardly. That bike wouldn't pass any inspection in any state. Wheelies are illegal in every state. No license plate on the bike is illegal...which means there's no insurance on it either, also illegal in every state. I'd bet heavily there's not even a clean title on that POS, and even place a side wager that the VIN was filed down because it's stolen (which, for the record...illegal too ).

                          So this one got the necromancy treatment...frankly I'm amazed that someone took the time ---what with facebook being the welcoming instant gratification home that it is --- to scroll through five weeks worth of posts to dig it up.



                          Once again, it's a facebook URL so it probably won't last long...I'll copy/cut/paste the OP so it will live on after the URL expires in a few hours/days/weeks as facebook linked URLs randomly do.

                          facebook vaporhead]Hi all,

                          I’m new to the group! I live in Austin, TX, and I own a 2019 Honda Rebel 300... I was wondering if anyone might be able to tell me whether it might be possible to replace the engine for a bigger one (maybe 500cc)? I think the frame and bodies for the 500s are almost identical. Just wasn’t sure if this would be a feasible swap. Anyway, anyone in the Austin area looking to ride, please feel free to reach out. Thanks in advance.

                          Followed by my retort of "Before upgrading your power you should upgrade your jacket, pants, gloves, and boots". Which naturally got the typical facebook disregard (LOL I have all that but no need of any of it for a quick 25mile trip in 110ยบ weather)

                          Yep, it's good to have priorities. Which is why it's such good form to be the solitary voice of reason.

                            The link worked, bought a 300cc cruiser, has not learned to ride yet, thinks she needs more power. Lots of people think the only way a motor can have more power is if it displaces more. Few have any concept at all about what makes a motorcycle work.

                              A quick member/name search reveals as of October 27 (two full weeks after that bit of brilliance) she put the bike up for sale. Obviously she got bored and outgrew it. Her choice of gear will serve her skill set well on the more powerful replacement.


                              See folks? This is what a forum format is up against. Today's internetters will have bought and sold the bike before most folks have time to respond, even on an active forum.

                                People like that don't buy motorcycles to ride Shadow, they are posers, not riders
                                and she strikes a very nice pose dressed in black, with her almost new black helmet and lightly used black motorcycle, that is now for sale.
