    Cherry Fires on Remembrance Day

    I strongly suspect that it did not go straight to firing him. They probably offered an opportunity to air an apology (and yes, what he said was definitely discriminatory) and he straight up refused it. Also given he's 85 they definitely already had a bunch of exit strategies in a drawer...

    Suzuki Oil vs Rotella T6

    1. Foamy/milky = coolant in the oil (blown head gasket... while that by itself is sometimes repairable, if there is enough coolant present to dilute the oil the engine is probably toast) 2.

    Cost breakdown for track day ?

    Have been thinking about this myself - current bike (CB919) seems like it would be well suited to it, but I won't be too upset if it gets bent in half.

    The Reasonably Priced Used Motorcycles for Sale Thread

    It just seems that the torsion bars a) wear out faster (I have never replaced a valve spring on any motor in my life) and b) they are not making new ones. As a racer, you would then be the worst case scenario for valve float with such a setup. You never had to do anything to manage it? Never...

    Suzuki Oil vs Rotella T6

    Rotella is not the best possible oil for a motorcycle. I use it because it is good enough and is usually much cheaper than "real" moto oil. If Suzuki synthetic is the same price somewhere, I would use that no question. Also, where is it that cheap so I can go get some

    Covered Bridge

    Is that all? That looks like you could throw jacks under there, unbolt those supports and throw a new beam in. The hardest part would be anchoring the jacks into something

    Mixing brake parts

    For the record, OEMs don't always nail down the ratio exactly. Example - the GS500 and SV650 have the same master cylinder and calipers, except the SV650 has two calipers instead of one.
