That was dang cool in the day as well !!!!
People always used to ask me back then "How can you get on a track with 20 other guys and zoom around that fast and that close together?" I used to say " All the guys on that track are going the same way at relatively the same speed and they ALL know what they are doing.".that was my arch breaker!!!! I had it quite a lot and was living in Miami at the time. almost got killed on it so many times people doing stupid stuff all around, I quit riding after that. I was run off the road so many times, people changing lanes with me right at the driver door, I had enough. always love to ride, but way too dangerous in metropolitan areas which is where I always have lived. If I was out in the country, I would probably get another one.
We have all been there !!!!!as my first modification to a motorcycle, and with no real experience modifying anything as an 18 yr old, I decided on the Harley sprint I had that I hated the headlight due to it's size. so, I go to the local motorcycle shop, find a chrome small headlight that looked like I could bolt into where the stock headlight was and buy it. I drive back to my dorm (was in college at the time) and with a set of hand tools that included a set of wire clippers, I see a mass of wires going into the back of the headlight and think, well, I won't be driving at night anytime soon, so I will just cut the wires and wire it up later. so I roll all the wires into one mass and snip. unbolt the headlight, bolt the new one on and go to drive my cool new Harley 250 sprint, sporting my chrome headlight. go to crank it....nothing. Little did I know that the wiring harness distribution box was in the headlight. no wonder it was do big!!!! managed to stuff everything in there and wire it together finally after days of working on it, but it shorted out all the time after that. never did get it totally fixed right. can you say STUPID???????????? yep, a miserable failure at my first real mod of anything.
