THE-SHOOTIST Anyone chubbin' like me for this?
mailmanmike Since Monday! That's more than 4 hours though, so according to those cialis ads I should see my doctor.
tlane77 I think for a non-chemical chubby it's 6 hours before its time to see a doctor. So you should be good for another couple hours.
splattttttt I wasn't goin to google "chubbin" because I assumed it had to do with fat. The lard type, not the fun stuff. But what ever feelings Jeff's experiencing, then they must be of the fun like stuff...
tlane77 He's got a woody for your woods.

I now found myself with an afternoon to kill, and the wife and baby were getting hungry so I suggested we head back to our side of town (My oldest two would be getting out of school in a few hours) to grab lunch and maybe fart around at some other dealerships and test ride some bikes.

I test rode a bike I've been oogling for a year. I should also confess that I brought the wife along to act as the voice of reason and keep me from doing crazy things on impulse...

Hey guys l will be looking to pick up a new bike this fall. I started riding dirt bikes when I was 8 and we'll 17 years later have been through about 8 bikes; enduros, CB's, CBRs and an older motto guzzi. I found that I like the sporty pick up but need a more comfortable riding position due to some back problems. I have been looking at vrods and the new scout does anyone have any experience with these or other recommendations?

Going to clean up the rear a bit, run carbs, and probably add on lower profile mirrors.


Considering bobbing it but not sure

I found the Street models to be highly uncomfortable (5'10", 215lb at the time). It was very cramped. I estimate that I was probably about 4-5 inches too tall for it. It was a painful three days on the bike. IMO, the newer Street Rod fixes all of my gripes I had with the base model Street series. Much more comfortable, though it obviously targets a different demographic with the styling.

Still waiting for my V Strom to show up and the Victory is sold so only bike I have at the moment is my little Yamaha TW200. It's really not a great bike at anything but it's easily the most fun motorcycle I have ever owned. And I have owned a few from BIG cruisers to sport bikes and tourers and even a big duelsport NOTHING is more fun than this awkward looking fat tired slow as molasses in January little street legal trail bike.

Was up north this past weekend trail riding with friends in rain and freezing temps. Was still lots of fun. Got a video of our ride down the road from our camp into town for some breakfast. Excuse the slow pace it was bloody COLD and it was the first off roading trip of the season so I'm RUSTY. OH and I'm riding a TW slow is what they do.

Bikes a 2010 Yamaha TW200 with:
upgraded springs front and rear (to handle my fat ***)
DG exhaust and re jetted carb (so now It makes noise as it goes slowly lol)
High mount front fender
Clark larger fuel tank
Yamaha rear rack
Seat concepts seat (WAY MORE COMFY)
Pro Taper ATV high bars
Shinko 5.10 244 front tire (aka even wider than stock fat tire)
Upgraded heavy duty Aluminum bash plate.

You mentioned the v rod and the scout. Both very different bikes.
V rod is a crazy powerful machine which begs fong fast straights
Scout is small in person. Swear it a sport bike and handles like one too.
Both are very reliable, but in terms of quality, the v rod totally outshines the scout
