It needs a sidecar and MG34 mounted.....
Funny you should mention that. No MG34, but it will wear a Watsonian-Squire sidecar sometime soon; that was the plan all along. Watsonian has about a 14 week build time right now, plus trans-Atlantic shipping time.
I had a combination about 15 years ago (mid-80s Boxer with a Velorex), but sold it to a good friend.
Combinations are a blast to ride, but much different than two wheels. Some of the British bike mags of the 90’s had articles - usually with at least one reference to “Wallace and Gromit.”
What model Stihl is that?
That's a beautiful beautiful bike!! Wow!!
Stihl MS 311. She's a beast.
What year is the bike? I have an old 1983 honda magna v45 that I've been bringing back from the dead. Was shocked by how much power it still has for a 38 year old bike!!
That’s actually a 2021.
When I first saw online photos, I figured the bike was some design exercise; then I saw it at the local dealership.
HP is 91, but torque is 158 NM. There are vids on YouTube of a guy sitting on one and grabbing way too much throttle. Luckily, the transmission was in neutral, but the cylinder kick almost bucked him off.
Those Honda V4s were very cool. My first bike was the Magna 500, which then went to my wife.
I have been riding a Magna 700 for the last couple years.
That's awesome man!
That's awesome man! Bike looks like a ton of fun!! Keep safe out there.
Hahhaa. How cool!! They're great bikes until you gotta pull the carbs off to fix a bad o-ring. That part absolutely sucks!!
Ill have to look that up.
I’ve been looking at Husqvarna 460 rancher or a Stihl with similar specs. Husqvarna mostly because ability to locate one locally.
Bar length (inch)
Recommended bar length, max
Weight (excl. cutting equipment)
Very nice! I would def snag that Husky. Sounds like you'd have more local / dealer support. That's why I went with Stihl. My local Ace carries them.
I’ll be there too! Looking forward to it!
i bought 2 of these coleman dual fuel 533 from kohl's a few days ago and both came with significant dents in the fuel tank...1 leaks fuel where the brass generator screws into the fuel tank (i disassembled it and tried to tighten it but it won't budge)...so i ordered 4 more from walmart to hand pick an undamaged 2 to keep but they also have varying levels of tank dents...all have date stamps of 02/21 (bottom of the fuel tank).
that fuel tank is made of really thick metal as far as i can tell (it's a beefy stove!) so it would not have gotten dented without the sticker getting damaged too so i'm betting it already had a dent before it went to painting dept. and stickering, etc...if they have multiple people checking it from each dept. then they all missed them big time....or maybe no real quality control checks at all? what happened to made in u.s.a. high quality?
i already contacted customer service today (the e-mail replies from them are very fast!) and the person said they don't have any in stock so just return all of them to the stores...just a head's up.
welcome to the bmw club!
Thanks! This will be my 4th (had two oilheads and an airhead before this one). It’s good to be back.

Today I purchased some top secret fabric. I'd show you, but it's top secret...
I also approved the proof sample, and thereby officially ordered, my woven tags for the soft goods I'm making. I'd show you, but they're top secret lol...
Alright.. Yup... This knife is Bad Ass. I got the OG scales because I’m not really into the G10 on fixed blades... so I’m going to have some fun with this until the 3D Micarta is available (Or not... these scales are cool). I will however probably get a kydex sheath & leather backer for it, sooner than later. I’m headed for the Mountains this weekend so I’ll get to put it to work a bit. Killer blade!
I wanted to try and start leather crafting again. The leather scraps were free with any purchase at Springfield leather. And this is much cheaper than modding knives lol. Also got a couple 10 rnd extended magazines, for the same price as the 6 round.
