SELF INTRODUCTION: Hi Dan, thanks for your time and energy spent on this new board. I hope you will give me a waiver on the email account, I have used gmail so long I don't have a clue what my service provider account is.
I just returned home from a 2 week trip in New Mexico, have a few good pix, can't wait to share my off-highway traveling. Got to put 1400 miles on the scoot.

Best, Bob Davidson

SELF INTRODUCTION: I am currently planning my first build based off a Triumph T120R. I am hoping to learn from you guys as this seems to be the only real deal, no BS, no ego, building forum on the internet. I don't have an extensive fabrication background, but know how to stick weld and how to turn a wrench. I figure that between those two skills, my own intuition, and knowing when to ask for guidance or help, my first build will be something I will be proud of.

Yes I figured as much. Aside from wrong parts. What do any of you think of that wheel formula?

If that tire calculator gets you a number within 1/8th of a inch will be fine for what you are doing.

They are using to get max top speed out for gearing so, I bet it is really accurate!

SELF INTRODUCTION: I was on the last board as bonustoolkit. I have changed that to my given name.
I started a project build there " File and Fit." I paln to continue that when I go back home in Dec. 2011. I first joined the board when Gary W had it in the year 2005. That was the time I really gained an interest in building chops. I have a long way to go, compared to some here.

Looks pretty precise. I didn't realize aspect ratio made any difference.
