Awful quiet in this part of the forum...

for those of you that have M.B.S. (multiple bike syndrome) and have the "silver wing" models.
as our sponsors also have supplies for those bikes and they are popular with the "wing" crowd.

Awful quiet in this part of the forum...


Post by Sidecar Bob »

Quiet here. The last post was over 2 years ago....

I'd offer to liven things up by posting what I'm doing with my CX here (as well as on CXforum) but since I stopped commuting I don't need to do nearly as much work on it so that has slowed to a trickle.
I could post some highlights of how Eccles became what it is. If anyone is interested let me know.

A few of us had CXs over the years … mine's long gone … could never get really comfortable on it although it ran beautifully. Tried all sorts of adjustments, risers and peg lowering, but couldn’t make it fit.

Had the same problem with my ST1100, great bike, but I couldn’t get comfortable on it.

Guess I’m just a weird shape and size … the old Wings worked and the 'new' KLR is fine too.

Reading almost everything posted on this site is part of my daily routine. Won't have much to contribute but I did have a Silverwing some years ago. Never could get used to riding it after being on four cylinder bikes since the early 70's. Keep posting, I'm reading.
