Have you watched the history of the Rune? I happened upon it when SRK cycles picked one up from another Honda dealership that had picked it up for $1500...he had like $3500 into it and sold it to SRK for $10500 and they'll flip for over 20K. I wasn't sure I loved it but I did think it was cool.

You right though...I like a smaller more nimble bike for sure.

Approximately $7.50 per 150 miles... Hmmm.... How far does $34.50 get you? 600+ miles and enough left over for hemorrhoid cream after all of that riding..

So, in other words, you have a one gallon tank? That must suck...

I get 4% cash back with my costco card and then another 15 cents off with my get upside app. Shiet...
pretty sure the station is paying me to fill up at this point.

Minor updates...I've done about 1100 miles on this thing around town.
I had a headlight that kept cutting out on me randomly...
took the bike apart, hit it with a multimeter...could not figure it out.
In the end, it was gummed up grease on the starter switch. Headlight
circuit runs through that to turn on.

got that bitch back on

and the oem gauge bezel was beaten by the sun and lifting up. Looked like shit...found a guy online that makes custom bezels for $50...
picked a retro design and put it in this weekend. Pretty nifty update.

Two of my co-workers have bikes...


One has a new Honda 300 (286), and the other has a 1000cc 1994 Harley...


The guy with the Honda has a buddy who just got a 1000cc Honda, he also has an identical 286.


286 is slow AF! Your TSX would beat it!

back in the day, 750 was considered decent. Now they go 1300 to 1800. Insane.
It's more than enough power for me and J to ride. Gets up quick...cruises great at 75.
Tops out around 100. Which is exactly what I wanted.

It's not all about CC's though, Wes...remember the weight of the bike.

Allow me to introduce you to the 2,294cc Triumph Rocket III

It also weighs as much as most ATVs

Bike is looking good. Have anymore plans for it to change up the look or are you happy with where it is at?

750cc is more than enough power to get you in trouble.

The 1400cc Indian in my garage is a top-heavy machine, tons of torque, but I've only had it out around the roads by my neighborhood so far.
Wish the speedo was bigger on it, like yours.

That R3 is crazy, almost as big of an engine that I had in my F150
Only makes 106/150, would've thought it had more power than that.
789 dry weight is about 200lbs more than the wet weight on the Indian.

with the new custom gauge bezel the only thing you can see is the speedo...the lighting through it is hard to see during the day for the signal/neutral colors (I use feel)
and the odometer is not visible because the contrast layer lens of it was lifted and brown and damaged so I removed it. I can use it as a decoder for when I sell the bike
though.

The Scout speedo is just quite small, but not overly hard to read in daylight.

Wait. If you can't see the odometer, how do you know how far you've gone on the tank? Or do you just wait to run out of gas so you can hitchhike to a gas station with a new friend?

They actually make a bit more power then that - 146hp/163tq claimed.

A 5xxlb Indian is actually pretty light. My dads old Chieftain weighed in at about 800lbs without fuel. Indian doesn't quote horsepower, but it was said to make about 73hp and 119tq. That's a lot of weight to move with not a lot of power My NT650 made 53hp at the rear wheel and is 412lbs wet - and I consider it slow

The Shadow doesn't have a gas light...
what it does have is a petcock (yes, petcock)
with a reserve setting on the valve.
So you run it on "RUN"...when the bike sputters you put it on reserve and flip your gas tank lid up
to remember to hit a gas station.

It's simple and effective and was I learned how to use that practice the hard way after getting stranded on the highway and push starting and limping it home one day.

I'm pretty good about checking the fuel when I know it's been a while anyway...
I might see if a light vinyl over the face gives enough contrast to see the mileage.

My F-I-L estimated the wet weight on the Scout at around 600lbs, since I haven't ridden in a while, it's definitely quick enough for me, for now.
