    The General Motorbikers Discussion Thread

    I am suffering from the wealth of choices for the 919’s replacement. Roadsters, nakeds, and proper adventure bikes. The worst problem is that I want them all 😅

    Someone beat us to it. Not an LS, but even better. https://bringatrailer.com/2015/09/21/675-hp-big-block-swap-1988-bentley-turbo-r/ The guy who bought even chimes in with an update.

    Realistically, I’d just get a junkyard iron block 6.0 and throw oversized turbos on it and get a very quiet exhaust. I’d also tear the braking system out and fit a more conventional setup. Dumping the motor from those cars is the best thing to do. From reading on a BaT auction, all the...

    If we’re in fantasy land, then a blown 528 Hemi!

    Fortunately, I’m a visionary, not an engineer. The power of ignorance will help keep it alive at least a week. That motor was never meant to develop more than 200 hp anyway. Then I’ll just swap in a Caddy 500 :D

    You’ve got that spare NASCAR motor, right?😛 Also someone needs to ‘shop that Danger to Manifold GIF to say Danger to Grey Poupon or something.

    My vision is just to boost the hell out of it and fit an LSD. Then all the classy burnouts.

    Ownership Verified: A Proper Four Cylinder Honda [2002 Honda 919]

    After realizing how little I ride the 919, I put it up for sale last month and yesterday, a man came and took it away. He's an MSF instructor, so it'll be in good hands. Don't worry, I'll buy something stupid to replace it by the end of May :P

    @CrzRsn get out of my head. I was just fantasy shopping Turbo Rs and Conitental Rs with @Nabster last week. Also, do it.

    The Gun thread

    Duly noted. I’ll have to sample one. I’ll just have to find a local range that has one. @Blind_Io I’m tempted to YOLO the suppressor ready model because it’s only a couple hundred bucks more than a threaded barrel for my USP .45

    P10C has had too many QC issues for my taste. Otherwise, I’d probably pick one up. I know I could train on Glocks, that’s why I’ve borrowed a friend’s Gen 4 G19.

    The Gun thread

    That’s good news. I’m eyeing replacements for my Sig P229 .357 Snowflake daily carry and the CZ P07 is on the list. Tried a Gen 5 Glock 19 MOS with a Leupold Delta Point the other week. The combo of Glock grip angle and it being my first time with a red dot pistol did not do anything to help...

    That Legacy is awesome. Bet that surprises a lot of people.
