My name is Rico and I'm in Oklahoma. Been lurking for a long time, thought I'd register. Thanks for having me.

Hey!!!

Good to see you, I'm guess the boss in particular will be interested to know more about your ride(s) etc

Meantime feel free to jump in, been a bit quiet, does that sometimes :)

Cheers

My ride is a 2005 1250 Roadster. It has an NRHS 1250 kit, Stage 2 headwork, a set of Andrews N-4 cams, and a TC88A programmable ignition running custom mapping that I wrote. Here are a couple of pics:

Nice one :)

As the others delight in reminding me at every opportunity I'm the elder citizen around here, don't ride any more, haven't for years but I think he who keeps the lights on and a few others are going to be most interested :)

I'm no spring chicken myself...but the bike keeps me younger than I would otherwise be.  :D

I've a feeling my wife might have other ideas about my longevity if a bike appeared in the driveway however :)

Meet our resident geriatric patient...

A bike is in my very near future, I just need to get the finances sorted out first.

See what I mean Rico ?

First time I think you have mentioned a bike Jamie, makes sense, at least you live in a country where motorists have some understanding of sharing the road with riders, Australia just gets worse from that point of view.

Nah, you must have been off for a geriatric snooze.

Richo and I chatted about it years ago.

I didn't have enough blood in my alcohol stream and Richo and I ended up in a bit of an argument that was entirely my fault but this is hardly the first time I've mentioned wanting a bike.

Yeah, it was around 2007, give or take a year.

I have a space for it now, I just need to get cashed up a bit and jump through the hoops of getting a license.

Maybe I should try writing some TC88A maps for the Big Twin. I assume from your post in the other thread, that you're running one of the canned maps. What are the settings on your first two dials?

I know zilch about the bike stuff but I can say that Richo would love to have any well-written bike article to put up on Dudeworld.

Even better if you have some pics to go with it.
