Ooops, that was a typo (will go back and correct).  Must have been thinking about the red bike's motor.  Option two would be "a bit more head work and the Mackie 590s."  If I stayed with option two I'd keep the CR a bit lower than the 598s would really need to work well.

That sounds like a winner.

Now if I'd just pick one.....  :huepfenlol2: :drink: .


Of course if I split the cases I then have to decide about the cosmetics.  Stay silver?  If the frame is powder coated a nice dark red the silver engine might be a better complement.

Or just color and diamond coat the heads and cylinders?  But leave the engine and tranny cases silver to, again, break up the all red field a little and add some complement.

One thing I'm almost certain of right now is powder coating it all (engine and tranny cases and engine top end) would be, relative to my personal tastes, too much of a good thing.  Need to break it up at least a little.  So the lower cases will (probably) stay silver.

Man it must just suck to have to be in such a position! LOL!

Since you already have done option 1 & 3, I'd look hard at #2. Or option 2 the DME 590. I'm considering that if I do any work on her motor this winter. Should be a good set up coming on a little earlier than the 598. FWIW.

Jeff, y'know.... I think it counts as "yelling from the bleachers" when the guy picking on you has more miles on his buffing and waxing cloths than on his tires :huepfenlol2: .

He just has a bit of an evil streak in him. Besides, I'm sure the money was on I would have already done cams and heads by now!

Need to get her seat ordered. I'm trying to decide on a two up or solo w/pillion. I'm also going to ask Chuck @ C&C if he can use the OEM stingray insert. The original owner had it removed/replaced with leather. Be nice to get it back on the bike.

You never hear me saying that I'm going to ride "X" many miles a year/day/whatever... and there is where the difference is. :P ::) :huepfenlol2: :huepfenlol2:

Had some time to kill while stuck on the phone and started thinking about wheels more.  Still inclined toward spokes.  Fat spokes.  Even thinking about dressing something up a bit even more than just fat diamond cut spokes.

If went with a chrome laced wheel would probably do something like this.  52 spoke.  Large diameter fat spoke.  And they can be diamond cut.

If did this would probably go with a normal 16" rear and probably an 18 x 3.5" front.  Even with the laced wheels wouldn't do wide whites on this bike.  Like them on a solid colored Road King with laced wheels.  But not on a bike with a paint scheme as busy and beautiful as the candy brandy SERK.  Don't want tires to visually compete with the paint (also don't really want to clean the whitewalls).

18" or smaller can do any of them in tubeless too. :drink:

Hey Don,
  The all chrome version looks great!  :2vrolijk_21:

  The, "variation" is nice but, to your point, why compete?  :nixweiss:

That's my reaction too.  I think.....

Different colors are an option.  So a more muted burgundy that matched the dark red would be more to my liking.  But a good chrome laced wheel with fat diamond cut spokes is hard to beat.  Decisions decisions....  :coolblue:
