    on another note,i'm shopping (still) for the new dyna sync tama pedal....my F god drum hardware is more expensive every day.

    i 100% trust tama when they say that this direct drive will be the perfect balance between an IC and a SC. power VS speed. i find my IC a tad heavy and slowiiish ,and my SC a little too lite(can't really play heel down because a lack of punch while the DW 2 way beater got me the feel i was looking for )

    Nelson, I bought this double pedal in 2009. Yamaha was bringing out a new model and Musiciansí Friend was clearing these out for $200.

    When my wife and I met 26 years ago . She had a bike but I didnít. I then bought a Yamaha 650 Maxim but It didnít have enough power. Being a hp junkie from the dark side I found a cherry 86 V-max. 140 hp stock. I named it The Beast . I loved that bike and owned it for 12 years. I had it dyno tested 110 hp at the rear wheel . One day on a country road I took it to 130 mph. That was enough for me ,I thought I was airborne!

    Being in Wisconsin the Birthplace of Harley Davidson I would be ridiculed by some for not owning a real bike. I would reply the only thing you will see is my fading tail light. What really got them pissed was when I would say ok, you paid 20k for a bike with maybe 60hp stock? I bought mine for 5gs at 140 ,end of subject. They knew deep down what kind of animal this bike was and if you would ask them to be honest about the first bike they road on it probably was a Japanese bike. In the end all that really matters is two wheels and the wind in your face but it got too dangerous dealing with idiots in cars & trucks . I changed a seat to a throne Imo much safer and more fun.

    Back in the early 80’s I came close to buying a Yamaha 1100 Midnight Special. After one test drive, I realized it was way too much bike for me. That monster weighed about 600 pounds. Also, Florida has a rainy season that lasts half a year and it’s no fun being on a bike in the rain.

    I ride a Harley (have owned 2) but totally reject the bull**** "lifestyle" they try to sell to people. Bikes are cool, no matter what the badge on the tank says. The VMax was a badASS bike.

    Lucky for me, I prefer my speed in cars. My Street Glide tops out at 90hp and I never pass 70mph. No need to go any faster in my book. The way I see it, any faster than that makes it difficult to see the world as you move through it.

    i've never enjoyed riding in the streets.too dangerous with the bunch of blind irespnsible idiots who are about to commit an homicide on 4 wheels at each street corners. i never had much love for harleys because in my book,i want a bike that turn,brake,accelerate on a dime.,which instills security for me; how can you countersteer,brake,and turn in an emergency situation with a 800lbs machine which sits 2 inch from the ground? ......however,any kind of bike ridden in the streets is a risk taken ,wether it's a nimble sport bike or anchor on 2 wheels, and anyways,most street riders couldn't take advantage of the specifics of a bike that theorically could steer them out of troubles in a walk or die scenario,so in real, the kind of bike ridden won't make a difference for the average street rider....for me,it just happens that i always prefered the track instead of the streets,and i like the racing designs of japanese race bikes.

    many people dont know,but harley davidson got somehow successfull in the AMA superbike series in the 90's with their VR1000 superbike ridden by 2 of my racing neighbors,miguel ''mig'' duhamel,and pascal picotte. unfortunately,harley called it a day at the end of their racing program because their brand mark engine couldn't compete anymore against the japanese concepts -technologies,while keeping the harley's engine designs,which was untouchable from harley's bosses point of view : changing their V-twins for inline fours would have been a sacrilege for harley,so they left it at that.
