    Giro Article in RoadBike mag

    Has anyone seen the Moto Giro article in Roadbike magazine? I didn't realize it was in so soon and hope I can get a copy.

    If you did see it, were there any pics of me and my bike--black honda CA160, rider with a red and white Ducati Jacket, or Jen D on my Ducati 160?? I just hope for my 15 min. of fame....

    Just curious.

    Yeah I should do that
    I have not been wanting to admit the reality of it
    but its time to face the Music.
    Gosh Darn it!
    I know there is a long waiting list
    so I will be helping some lucky bugger get their dream of riding the Giro this time.

    Take pics and Breathe some 2 smoke for me
    Yours in sad absentia
    Jen

    Boy Jen, and I finally seemed to have gotten the "wiggle" out of the Duc... it is amazing what a new set of steering head bearings will do.

    Jack - not to hijack the thread, but what kind of "wiggle" did you have in the Duc? My BMW has picked up an annoying habit of potential tank slapping oscilation when I engine brake....or run in a certain RPM range. I contribute it to the "shake" of the aftermarket peashooter exhaust... I don't want to just slap a damper on it, because that masks the problem and does not fix it. I was told by someone it could be an unbalanced front tire or bad tread wear.. The bearing seems okay at rest. Meaning, on the center stand there is no front to back give in the stearing and the forks slowly fall to the side (which is what the BMW manual says it is suppose to do). Hummmm......

    You heading up to Granite state?

    All the things you mentioned, plus check your swingarm adjustment for slop. I'd fit a steering dampner if you don't at least have the stock one on there. Maybe in ideal mechanical conditions you shouldn't need it, but there's a good reason why the factory installed one.
    My buddies R100CS would develop a wobble above 75 mph. We finally pin-pointed the problem to a missing rear shock bushing.

    Good luck

    off throttle head shake on your bike is usually steering head bearings/adjustment. Too tight or loose, but also make sure it's not a brinelling (sp?) issue.
