    Spring is in the.....

    I drove (cage) to Bridgenorth and had breakfast with 11 motorcycle buddies this morning. All were in a good mood and looking forward to this years first ride.

    Jump start/booster

    I was contemplating picking up a jump/boost battery pack until I read it's for lead acid batteries only. My bike has a lithium battery so I was wondering if there is anything safe to use for lithium?

    Two cycle bike insurance

    Hey guys, I'm going to look at an 1983 RZ350 tomorrow (always wanted a 2 cycle for zooming about). I was just wondering if 2 cycle bikes are frowned upon by the insurance co's. If I remember right, a few decades back 2 cycle bikes (and turbo's) typically got raped by insurance co's.

    Air filter replacement

    Hello I just replaced the air filter on 2015 kaw zx10r. Reassembled the bike but then remembered a mysterious rubber tube inside the clean side of the air box (tube 92192A). I think this is a crank vent? Anyway I'm not sure if this connects to the air box cover or not? Could this tube just be...

    507 construction

    We were riding 507 today and noted a new layer of (good quality) blacktop north bound for several km. Some areas are patched up and perhaps getting ready for more new pavement. The law was in somewhat of a foul mood, as per some riders at Gooderham rest stop. The locals seemed to be...

    Anyone tried PipeWerx exhaust?

    Just started looking into it. Wondering if anyone tried out their products? The few available reviews seem well enough. Happy Apexes :)

    Home make heated apparel.

    Someone I know who wrecked their vehicle, gave me their salvaged, crappy-tire heated seat cushion... So I was thinking of removing the heating coils and installing them in one of my old, unused light weight (spring/fall) jackets. I know I have some math to do because the truck battery obviously...

    Drying out a sweaty Suit

    I picked up two $7 USB fans at Wallyworld. They fit inside the bottom of the pant openings on my Dainese leather suit. I intend to run them from a simple cell phone usb wall charger(from the buck store). They seem to move enough air to potentially dry out a sweaty suit. Any thoughts? Happy...

    Useless oil filter wrench

    Upon oil filter removal attempt, the cheap crappy tire strap type oil filter wrench just slips. When I installed the filter I followed the manufacturers torque requirements (3/4 turn from finger tight) but the cheesy wrench just isn't up to the task for removal. I just ordered a small oil...

    Another hwy 507 adventure

    My usual weekend ride includes hwy xxx since I live fairly close, it takes me north and it's a ***** load of fun. My destination was Fort Irwin (great technical ride). I always stop (whether I need fuel or not) at xxx gas station, have a smoke and pop with the owner and we swap hwyxxx stories...

    Hwy resurfacing.

    Hwy 507 undergoing chip and tar resurfacing at northern end. Hwy 503 has new (nice quality) pavement east of Gooderham! I noticed some construction on Hwy 518 as well. Hwy 632 new pavement but it's rough (new pavement over old?) It's getting challenging to ride without encountering resurfacing...
