    Bike meets such as LnL - during COVID 19. Your thoughts.

    Donald Trump is certainly deserving of blame. But, people voted for him. And, some of the people who voted for him, did so because they voted against Hilary Clinton. Donald Trump should never have been the Republican candidate. But, people voted for him (or against others). Hilary Clinton...

    Coronavirus

    It doesn't seem so long ago that a mathematical model was released that predicted 100,000 to 200,000 deaths in the USA, and it seemed preposterous at the time. According to www.worldometers.info that range has now been reached.

    Bike meets such as LnL - during COVID 19. Your thoughts.

    If society as a whole plays its cards right, this virus need not "always" be present. A number of jurisdictions worldwide, including whole countries (like Australia and New Zealand), and including a few Canadian provinces and territories, have banished this virus, at least for now. Several...

    Tow Truck Turf War

    GOOD! It's about time! But surely there are more than 20 people involved in this. That has to be just the tip of the iceberg.

    Bike meets such as LnL - during COVID 19. Your thoughts.

    Go back and think about the intent of the rules. Physical distancing -> reduce virus transmission to reduce spread, keep in mind the possibility of asymptomatic spreaders. Wear a mask -> reduce virus transmission to reduce spread, keep in mind the possibility of asymptomatic spreaders.. Reduce...

    Coronavirus

    The deniers and conspiracy-theorists here all seem to be right-wing conservatives, too.

    2000 Ninja 250 Sprocket Change

    I suck at doing wheelies. Only ever happens off the start line, or maybe on the power over a crest or exiting a corner.

    Tesla model X

    The current model designations are S3XY - if you flip the 3 backwards - SEXY. Not a coincidence! The known upcoming/vaporware models are Cybertruck, Roadster, Semi.

    Can we get a RACE sticky?

    Question answered. The free test day included with the license is Friday 5th June only. After weeks of having days off work without particularly having wanted those days off work ... I don't know at the moment if I have that day off ...

    Removing stuck hardware

    The inner race on the bottom of the steering stem is a rotten son-of-a-gun at the best of times. Know how I fix those? I take the stem, with bearing still on it that I want to remove, to Pro 6 Cycle, "Here, can you fix this", pay a small invoice, and shortly thereafter get back a steering stem...

    2000 Ninja 250 Sprocket Change

    He wants shorter gearing, not taller.

    2000 Ninja 250 Sprocket Change

    Your gearing right now should give you about 7000 rpm at 100 km/h in top gear. Most 250-or-thereabouts bikes are geared around that, because that's what works. At 120 it will be spinning about 8400 rpm in top gear. At 160 (close to horsepower-limited top speed), it will be spinning around 11,200...

    2000 Ninja 250 Sprocket Change

    You have the wrong bike for that sort of thing. What you have, is top end power with nothing down low. What you need, is bottom end torque and driveability down low in the revs - basically, a dirt bike.

    2000 Ninja 250 Sprocket Change

    Ooooh, so you want to practice wheelies. Well then. I exit stage right, you are on your own.

    2000 Ninja 250 Sprocket Change

    Recommendation ... especially in view of your relative lack of experience (sorry, but it is) ... Stay with the stock sprocket ratios. The original manufacturer of that bike, knew what they were doing when they picked that final drive ratio. If you need more acceleration while riding, downshift...

    Can we get a RACE sticky?

    Hot off the email ... (Does anyone know if the free test day that was originally included with buying the license, can be applied to either of the new test days, and if so, which? At least some of us have to work on Friday ...) Revised Schedule 2020 Friday, June 5 – Test Day Saturday, June 6...

    2000 Ninja 250 Sprocket Change

    The chain has to do a more severe angle change as it wraps around each tooth, and the chain changes its linear speed more as each chain link engages - this is why when you spin a chain/sprocket system, there is a little bit of a "bumpity-bumpity-bump" noise as the chain wraps around the sprocket...

    2000 Ninja 250 Sprocket Change

    Avoid using a front sprocket with fewer than 14 teeth.

    Bike meets such as LnL - during COVID 19. Your thoughts.

    It's inadvisable to do something organised or quasi-organised for more than 5 unrelated people without having a solid plan for physical distancing in place. A few people scattered here and there shouldn't attract attention (and it's easy to keep a little distance between people), but a big...
