A video with Jay Leno's 1925 Brough Superior SS 100.Ahh. The smell of burning castor oil. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yA1iV0Dbn-0&feature=youtu.be
Great video of a great bike.I couldn't help thinking how today's modern riders would be complaining about how it "isn't a Honda" or "has vibrations", or "you have to add oil to it regularly", and "you have to touch it to make routine adjustments", or whatever they seem to like to complain about.It just seems that today, people like to moan about what something "isn't", instead of seeing the value of what it "is".
Leno's video sparked a question for me: What blows the horn on that bike when it's not running?
I think it's the rider.It seemed like a manual rubber bulb horn to me.
Duh! You're right. I wasn't watching his hand closely enough when I first watched it. I must have been looking at some other detail (there are thousands) on the bike, heard the horn & thought he pushed a button. Did you notice he killed the engine with the exhaust valve lever just as we all should do with the Enfields to prevent running backwards?
Yes, I did notice that, and the SS100 didn't even have a sprag to worry about!
Sorry to rant, but there's an awful lot of motorcycle bigotry & hypocrisy going on out there today
