    Or as we call it, BBO.

    We are a community of loyal riders, bikers, and motorcycle enthusiasts that are here to share our knowledge and experience with the internet. BBO was created so that the best experiences from all around the world can be spread to those who are looking to get into riding. Our membership base includes people from all walks of life, from countless countries, sharing thousands of years of riding experience. The name may say beginnerbikers.org, but we are home to veteran riders just the same.

    We encourage you to come in, join us, and share your experiences. We hope that if you're new into riding that you pick up some pointers. It's very possible some tidbits you receive here, might save your life. Just the same, if you're an old dog that wants to share some tricks, we invite you in and hope to hear all the stories you have to share.

    I am not sure how to tell if the resistance is relative to the chain or the wheel. Brakes are plausible. New rear brakes last year and few miles since then.

    Is rear wheel alignment a possible...
