    Rear brake question

    If there is not the correct amount of free play, it`s like you`re riding the brake.
  2. There are way too many distractions while driving these days, (phones, entertainment systems, GPS!), and of course the good old bad decision of driving while drunk! Some of the new driving assist stuff I think is just wrong, (park assist where the car parks itself, backup cameras when people don`t turn around and look also), if you can`t park maybe you should not drive!
  3. This is the way I saw it too. +1 !!!! Never liked Marquez or Lorenzo ! I do like Dani Pedrosa, Marquez`s team mate !
  4. Maybe stonewall peak? Stonewall Peak
  5. I would really like to go on this ride but I am not sure if it`s in the cards. I`ll know as the date gets closer. I wouldn`t mind car pooling if someone has extra space.
  6. Awesome...you guys are killing me !!! But considering the 80's are my era it is only fitting Netflix has it on DVD,(but not instant streaming). My profile pic is me on my 77 TT 500 about 1981 in San Felipe Wash at the 78 overpass, near The Blu-Inn, (our favorite campsite at the time !)

    2015 Line of Husqvarna DS machines

    Wow. sorry you had two bad experiences with these guys. I have bought three bikes from them, and consider the people there as friends. My observation is that they are pretty laid back most of the time. I have been in other stores where sales personel are trained to be so aggressive, that I am insulted by how much they can ignore clues that I give them in our conversation about what I am looking for. I have always liked Moto Forza too ! They are very laid back. They are not high pressure salesmen. Next time you go in there, approach them and I think you will change your mind.
  10. Back in the mid 70s my friends and I would cut classes at O`side High and go hang out at the river bed, ride and party, (if you know what I mean). Lots of good memories !

  13. Rmember if it aint broke, _________it. You fill in the blanks. As long as you know the flow rate in all the different areas of the cooling system are right, you should be good to go.

    IMS tank

    I had two clear white ones crack and a third would not seal at the fuel pump gasket. Then I got the black one and have had no problems. That was all within 6 months of purchase. Each time hey sent me a new one in a box with a return shipment label, no cost to me!. I purchased it from Hall`s Cycles.
  17. I am not going to be able to go on this trip. I was really hoping to make it but it`s not in the cards for me!

    Caterham Bikes

    Caterham has an F1 Team.
  19. I am interested, not sure if I can though. I will watch this thread and see how things pan out.
  20. The license is cheap and easy to get. Learn the basic rules and you would have to be a complete idiot to get yourself in trouble! I am kind of curious! How many people with radios on this site have a license and how many do not? I have mine. I'd at least like to have a license to show the support and attempt to be "legal". I've done the same thing, and I think it's a good idea to have the license to theoretically use repeater in case of an emergency, but.... I also believe that the penalty for an unlicensed transmission is less severe (depending on what's said/done) than being licensed and then operating in violation of the FCC rules. Might be better off without the license and pleading ignorance, than passing the test and flaunting the law. Remember, in an emergency, an unlicensed operator may use the frequencies available... Dunno. Ya... that's why (one of the many reasons) I've not RAN OUT and taken the test just yet....

    Motorcycle batteries

    I have had good results with AGM batteries. I still have the original battery in my 2008 Husqvarna TE 510. I am am on the second battery in my 2003 Harley Sportster S. I replaced it about 3 years ago. Also, the Harley lived in Western Massachusetts from 2004 till October of 2007. I have a Battery Tender that I switch back and forth between the two bikes about once a month.
  22. I thought everyone would enjoy this!
