    How I coaxed a little more power from my CTX700 and I didn't have to buy a new bike!

    EUREKA ! ! ! I have discovered a way to add 3 KW power to our little engines for very little costs. In case your wondering, that equates to slightly more than 4 HP. Taking the little engine that might to one that is slightly bigger. 46.9 hp vs 51.0 hp= an 8.7% increase in output potential...

    Comfort Improvement Modification - #1

    In February 2014 I bought my CTX 700. It has been a joy to ride and I have put over 50,000 miles on since. One of the comfort things that most of us do is to upgrade the footpegs to floorboards and the seat. I installed a set of Kuryakyn Floorboards just before I began and had Rick Lamm re-do...

    Jerky Throttle

    Since I've had my CTX, throttle response from a standstill has been like a quick drop of the clutch and sort of jerks me back in the seat and requires a firm grip on the handle bars. No matter how hard I tried to be very gentle on takeoff I always get a jerk on takeoff. As luck would have it...

    Another LOK is in the record books. And you might say: "So WHAT! It's only a 1500 mile, 4 day ride around the periphery of Kentucky. Lodging is at three Kentucky State Resort Parks scattered about. I had the privilege to be the routing author for this years event. It was so much fun...

    My Sena 20S experience

    So last Saturday morning I left home for a Lap of Kentucky proof-ride. Thursday I picked up a Sena 20S to replace a damaged Cardo PacTalk. This I did because my riding buddie has a Sena 20S and raved about all of it's capabilities. In two of the four days of riding we were in some heavy...

    It was a wonderful day for a ride.

    Been off the CTX for 9 days due to some health issues. Got back in the saddle yesterday and rode ~170 miles for a grilled tuna sandwich and to pick up some salsa. Boy did it feel good! A N D it tasted even better on my scrambled eggs with sausage, peppers, onion, and shrimp.

    Engine quit while traveling

    My doctor finally released me to ride locally last week. I haven't ridden since May 29th so I was more than ready to go. Then I couldn't! My CTX just died about a mile from the house. Had my son pickup my truck and trailer to get it home. The dreaded "STUCK IN GEAR" thing finally happened...
