The history of the study of bike dynamics is nearly as old as the bicycle itself.
There are a whole series of "On Any Sunday" video sections on Youtube. Start with Bart, Malcolm and Steve at: Photos, history, and infomation in SpecialReport. Please mention if you are a member of the Jtan internet Vincent discussion group. I too plan to keep it next to my easy chair this winter, close by the crackling fire, sampling various stories and studying the excellent photos.
The story telling is not limited to Vincent motorcycles So it is with a man in his bathing shorts and Motorcycle single spring seat slippers balanced precariously on the rear fender of a Vincent setting the American Motorcycle Speed Record at Bonneville A serious book for a serious reader Many thanks to Anders Forsberg!
Answer to e-mail questions about the Black Lightning song: Richard carries us away on a vivid adventure in song where others have been left standing at the curb. By the end of his story we feel our tourguide on this enjoyable journey has shown us that Red-haired women and Vincent Black Lightnings can be both our salvation and our ruin.
What is powerful enough to carry us to the heavens can also crash us to earth. His gift of the Black Lightning may not be a reward for what she gave him, but rather a realization that he must free himself from the steel bonds of both of his deepest loves.
Only then can he escape the forces that gave him life and controlled his destiny. For those of us who own a Vincent motorcycle, nothing else comes remotely close to the feelings of riding a quiet Dinosaur that suddenly transforms into a Fierce Dragon that bellows fire and takes flight.
To listen to the song Compliments of Red Molly. Xxxxxxxxx, Thanks for your note.
Yes, ads are thin right now with people putting their spares on Evil Bay clawing for absolutely the top dollar When asked about Evil Bay, I tell Vin owners to try to borrow some Vin parts from Ebay, ask about their next Vincent social event, try to get help setting up your timing chest, ask them a tech question about carbs, stop over for a free beer and chat Bitten by their own snake.
In an old Chinese man in Takoma Park, MD asked me to look at this strange motorcycle in the cellar of the house he inherited from his brother. It was a rough Velocette Venom that had been sitting for years and was missing the muffler.
We worked for over an hour in the dim light before I could finally kick the reluctant dragon to life. It responded by filling the cellar with thick blue smoke, flashes of light from the backfires, and roars from the open exhaust. He was 9 again and it was the Fourth of July.
Also noted was the torrent of Chinese shouts from his wife at the top of the stairs which were totally ineffective at quenching our Celebration. To this day, the key ingredients of vintage motorcycling still are - mystery, frustration, sweat, loud noises, smoke, camaraderie, celebration, and contentment.
Condition can be bought by anybody who can afford the best restoration. But nobody can recreate originality. Once lost, its gone forever. A man can ride his Vincent Motorcycle in the daytime and sleep under a city bridge at night covered only by cardboard and his life will be rich and complete.
Steven Alford At least we have Vincent motorcycles to spirit us away from all that is worrisome in this troubled and divisive world. Whether riding or taking apart or admiring in your garage or just talking about with kindred friends Phil Irving left us a precious gift and that realization of his dream can lift us to new heights Without Irving, we are left with smoking popcorn can 2 strokes and arrogant unresponsive slugs of American ironKawasaki Versys-X ABS Review The littlest Versys might be the one to propagate your bigger adventures.
