Exclamation Agricultural vs Modern Engineering

Wo Dude you can break more than your heel riding dangerous stone-age backwards engineered cycles without rear suspension. In 1928 Brough and Moto Guzzi introduced rear suspension.
Rigid frames were for cheap motorcycles to supply post war demand for ride to work machines or family transport with a sidecar.

Always remember – The only person you can impress with a chicken-chaser is another chicken-chaser owner.

My Screenshot above shows a modern Brough Superior - made in France.
https://www.bennetts.co.uk/bikesocia...superior-ss100
The original Brough Superior SS100 made famous by T. E. Lawrence, Lawrence of Arabia, who bought one of the first SS100s in 1925 having previously owned three Brough SS80s.
https://www.classicmotorcycle.co.uk/...uperior-ss100/

Our screenshots highlight the backwards agricultural engineering out there in the US and the modern development of motorcycles in Europe, UK and New Zealand.
Even UK pedal cycles are a quantum leap ahead in terms of engineering – eg Moulton Space Frame - https://www.moultonbicycles.co.uk/features.html
Okay the Brough Superior is an expensive short production run motorcycle – surely they sell KTM and Ducati V twins in the US along with old style Moto Guzzi V twins?

That well known American Film star and British bike fan; Steve McQueen added Brough Superior and Vincent motorcycles to his collection on a visit to England around 1976.

Thumbs down Nice Shovelhead - No such thing..!

The crap Shovelhead engines had only 10 fins for cooling, which caused them to run hot. Another problem was that oil would pool in the cylinder heads, causing it to leak into the valves and burn oil. Another problem was that oil would pool in the crankcase rather than being pumped, causing the engine to overheat and seriously harm performance. Oil leakage and consumption became such a problem with the bikes, many owners reported losing as much as a quart of oil every 500 miles. The excessive overheating in the motors also caused serious problems, which frequently led to failure. With a lack of oil and excessive heat, the valves were prone to sticking and destroying the top end. Numerous Harley technicians even stated that without necessary top-end modifications, the motors would often last only between 500 and 5,000 miles. With Harley-Davidson trying to fix the engine rather than research and develop, they fell even further behind the British bikes and competition of the cheaper and more reliable Japanese bikes taking control over the market.

However, in 1974, the engine started to show many more problems. With the United States involved in the 1973 oil crisis, gasoline had a much lower octane and consistency that severely hurt the engine's performance. Engine knock became a large problem; causing overheating that led to blown gaskets and damaged head bolts. AMF tried to combat this by producing more units in 1976 despite the engine's problems, which ended up leading to a damaged employee reputation, along with seriously declined quality in their units. After realizing they would need some serious improvement to fix their current situation which now escalated from bad to worse…

No wonder that well known American Film star and British bike fan; Steve McQueen added Brough Superior and Vincent motorcycles to his collection of British Triumph bikes on a visit to England around 1976.

By 1978; The Harley Davidson Shovelhead’s valves and guides were still prone to problems, along with more overheating, detonation, and heavy oil consumption.
Another problem that arose in 1979 was that the motors were fitted with electronic ignition units, which were prone to failure. Many owners would swap the units for an older point-ignition system for reliability. The larger compression ratio on the newer engines was still a serious problem, due to the low fuel quality and octane. With many Shovelhead owners having to turn towards aftermarket parts to keep the bike running properly.

So there we have it – a complete disaster of an engine made in America. So what about the bikes that fitted this pile of cr4p..?

The Shovelhead engine was ultimately fitted to all of Harley-Davidson's big twin motorcycles throughout its production. The motors were first met with controversy due to the Shovelhead's weight and ground clearance. Because of this steering and weaving became a new issue that arose with motorcycles fitted with the engine. No wonder they are now made in India… home of the Royal Enfield Bullet.

Hardware wise Ok. Took up too much space on 16 gig ssd drive and I was not going to move /home to a external /dev/sdb and automount on boot to use it. So I went with antiX instead to run on one internal drive.

I keep a large usb drive for downloaded stuff and such. I just don't automount or symlink it.

16G would be a tight fit for many systems before long. My Kali is installed on the internal Emmc drive on the PinebookPro, a 58Gig solid state unit of which I'm currently using only 30% after installing everything I'm likely to need.

tmpfs 5.0M 8.0K 5.0M 1% /run/lock
tmpfs 387M 84K 387M 1% /run/user/1000

My initial concern with Kali was that it was that the default apps were so specialized in the cybersecurity area and apt-get didn't seem to "see" the various packages I normally install by default (LibreOffice, Gvim, Gimp, Evince etc). But as soon as "apt-get update" was run, all was good.
Hardware: YES one of my primary reasons for being happy, as WiFi/Bluetooth/Sound (even onboard speakers) all worked out-of-the-box, which I could not say for multiple other OS images tried. The closest other good fit was Manjaro, but even it had sound issues.

DistroWatch tells us that Kali is categorised as: Data Rescue, Forensics, Live Medium, Raspberry Pi, Security and in testing:-

I also found that moving my mouse over to the edge of the screen (particularly the top of the display) when I wanted to get the pointer out of the way or select something, would cause the Activities overview to engage. This basically stopped whatever I was doing in its tracks and required I switch back to the regular desktop view. Combined with GNOME's less than impressive responsiveness, it soon became frustrating trying to use Kali.
By the time I was finished my trial with Kali Linux I was more puzzled than when I started as to why I keep hearing about new Linux users installing the distribution. Nothing on the project's website suggests it is a good distribution for beginners or, in fact, anyone other than security researches. In fact, the Kali website specifically warns people about its nature.


Guess using 358% more RAM at idle than my Antix-LXDE setup does not help the slug either…?

Pity really; as I was going to ask you if Kali could forensically penetrate and test that pile of shovelhead junk housed in a backwards engineered frame likened to a dish of cooked spaghetti as portrayed in your screenshot?

Wink Another antidote to the primitive agricultural USA chopper slow pokes..!

Yes, another UK V-Twin - 1948...

Note: Front and rear hydraulic controlled suspension shocks

That well known American Film star and British bike fan; Steve McQueen added Brough Superior and Vincent motorcycles to his collection on a visit to England around 1976 but not this one; the Vincent Black Lightening which in the 1940’s achieved 143mph on the road, progressing in 1953 to 163mph (263kilometer/hour) with a supercharged version taking world sprint records having terminal speed of 200mph or 322kilometer/hour

Antix-LXDE is just as fast using just 71MiB RAM ticking over

Devuan Chimaera 4.0 stable release

It is slightly more difficult to install than Debian but it starts faster than Debian and it is more stable than Debian.

For those using Intel or AMD GPUs I would definitely recommend giving Devuan a try, it's almost as good as FreeBSD in terms of stability.
