    Diane, I totally get it. I came very close to hanging up riding for good after Bruce was killed, and did hang it up entirely for a couple of years. That was another freak accident (although...

    Wishing you all the best, Sparky. Let me know if there's anything I can do before, during, after. I'm not *that* far away.

    No argument on the desirability of learning to tripod the bike as a matter of course. I just don't want anyone here to feel like they are somehow *lacking* if they aren't comfortable on a bike they...

    Well, you can keep a foot on the rear brake even if you *don't* have to tripod the bike. ;)

    A dual sport such as the KLR is really the ultimate urban guerilla commuter vehicle. You sit up high where you can see over most of the other traffic, you have the ability to go over potholes (even...

    Sad when the best thing anyone can say about HughesNet is "it's better than dialup." ;)

    Yup, we all say that. And then some of us end up flicking the throttle 1/8" more than we intended because we hit a bump or a pothole and wheelie into the car in front of us. Or we forget we're not...
