    whats the purpose of some ppl using license plate hiders/flippers?

    I'd say it's not so much 407/evasion but more about aesthetics for some riders prefer the look of a clean tail section with an integrated taillight and license plate holder that doesn't protrude at a right or obtuse angle, but rather follows the lines of the bike's undertail. In Canada and the...

    Hit and run on my parked bike

    Really sorry to hear about this situation and I feel your pain. The culprit leaving the scene without leaving any sort of note or contact information shows an egregious lack of empathy. "#3. F this truck driver. .." I felt exactly the same years ago when a delivery truck hit and damaged my...

    Tire change

    I'm really intrigued, you mention the tires are Pirelli Rosso Corsa's and they've been on the bike since 2013. Is that right? That means you're riding around on tires that are 7 or 8-years old. But here's the thing, they could be even older than that! Take a look on the sidewall for a 4-digit...

    Selling a Bike these days

    Exactly. A potential buyer that only wants to communicate via texts and makes an offer sight unseen? Not serious at all. A buyer should always call the owner and ask when (day/time) it would be convenient to view the bike. Be flexible.

    Aviva/RBC won't renew my policy even though my record is clean - anyone ever experienced this?

    Have you tried TD? Riders Plus are a good option too but I believe they won't insure any sport or supersport at or above 600cc. Like others have said, change up your ride to something a little more insurance friendly. I'd try a Yamaha R3, Ninja 300 or 400. Good luck. Sent from my SGH-M919V...

    507 not like heaven.....

    I rode the 507 last month with a friend and we had similar impressions. What happened? I was thinking. This road has lost its lustre. I remember it being much better a few years ago. The road surface conditions were generally mediocre to poor most of the way up to Gooderham with just a few...
