    @alex

    At first, I was against it.

    I have given in to peer pressure - wear leathers.

    Full disclosure: yes, I have idled on the center stand to lube the chain (heck maybe even to clean it). No, I have not lost any fingers.

    That said, I just don't think we should even post this as a...

    I don't know of any bike breakers around... The closest I think I've seen is in PA.

    I don't a breaker would want the parts I have, though.

    How to responsibly discard old parts (NYC)

    Greetings all.

    As I found the bend of my second year of motorcycle ownership, I find myself with a flight of spent parts and chemicals lying around. I'm trying to keep as much of this stuff out of...
  9. Earth metal vs Space metal - a spark plug thread

    over on gstwins, we've had a bit of discussion about plugs and I wanted to bring it up here.

    If the scout is considered completion for the Sportster or Bolt, it's urban, not a tourer. Therefore the emphasis likely won't be a larger tank.

    As for sitting on top vs. in, see cruiser vs....

    Motorcycle crash video (not me)

    Interesting helmet cam vid of a crash and aftermath. There's no gore or anything. Educational for any rider.

    That was my fault - started the without adding the poll.

    I often find myself having the urge to go out for a ride within 30 minutes of getting back in from being tired of riding.
  16. Poll: Most number of times you've gone for a ride in a single day.

    Not counting vacations/trips/getaways, what's the most number of times you've left home in a single 24 hour/sundown-to-sun-up period.

    I've been out once today. I'm going out again now, just to...

    The toll for the Jersey crossings is utterly ridiculous, more so for bikes. It makes the prices for types the VZW seem downright cheap with an E-Z Pass.
