Re: Tadpole motortrikes.

Nearly twice as much mass over the front of the bike ... this has all the hallmarks of a solution looking for a problem to solve .... not the first time Yamaha have gone down an innovative dead end with suspension ..GTS1000 anyone ...... they do like an engineering challenge .... :)

Re: Padded Cycling Shorts - What Do You Wear Under - How Often Do You Wash
