    If someone could develop a pedal that did pinch harmonics it would probably sell well. The problem is, all the pedal makers I’ve spoken to say it can’t be done electronically. I’m not sure why.

      Because there are multiple pinch harmonics available in every fretted string position and its determined by the position of the pick and thumb.

      It could be done *digitally* using the same kind of processing as a Digitech Whammy, but you would be creating the signal from whole cloth after processing what comes off the string, not separating it out of the original string signal.

    I rode my old Beemer up the ACH this morning, not a good idea when you’re an old man who’s not a very good rider, I rode over ice and snow and scared my self witless .

    It was the annual Norton Club’s New Year’s Eve Morning ride, I did have fun and some how was the second Moto to arrive at the luncheon place .

    Good food, wonderful peaple eager to share their collective knowledge and some cool bikes, old and new .

        You and I both ! .

        Brendan arrived a bit later and told everyone how fast and good a rider I am, it’s BULLSHIT ~ I know fast (try keeping my son in sight) and I’m a middling rider who tries to be cautious .

        I’m old and it’s no fun .

        DO THE FUN STUFF NOW, don’t wait and say “someday” .

          BTW :

          I used to _LOVE_ riding vintage Tiddlers in the snow and taught as many of my friends and buddies as I could, sadly that’s all done now I guess .

          I hope Honda N.A. decides to begin making the CT125, I’ll buy one in a heartbeat and slap the stickiest street tires I can find on it and go off into the sunset happly, at 45 MPH or course…..

          I tried the new, 2019 125 Super Cub and it fits nice but damn, just too foofy for me .

            Here is a ride that sounds right up your alley. I know it’s a bit far from home, but it’s a hoot.


            I rode it twice in the early 90’s on a Honda MB5 that a neighbor had. At the end of the ride, I was slap wore out as it’s in the mountains. There were several places where you had to “paddle” the bike up a hill if you didn’t know what was coming for hills (I didn’t)

            WAA-HOO ! .

            That looks like mucho fun .

            Just like driving slow / under powered cars / trucks fast, Tiddlers put all the effort on the rider where it should be .
