    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

    TL / DR I bought a new bike, and you don't like it. Last year when on a trip down to the Dragon, I rode past a motorcycle rental outfit that had a Yamaha Niken. I had seen pictures of them and seen one at a motorcycle show, but had never seen one in the wild. The opportunity to rent one for a...

    Where to get seat done for rat project?

    I have a longstanding project I'm looking to get finished, but one outstanding thing is the seat. I'm not looking for anything complicated, but the seat has to be removeable or lift somehow because the bolts for the seat pan are right where the seat should be. Anyone have any recommendations?

    Big Bike Thread

    I thought I'd start a thread for those of us that have bigger bikes, because it feels a bit like we don't have a home. I've owned 2 V-stroms, a 650 and a 1000 and am currently 65,000 kms into a R1200GSW. Mostly, I've treated these bikes like touring bikes, but with the GS, I've started to do...

    North Carolina

    I debated whether or not to post this here, and despite the suspicion that this thread is going to devolve quickly, I'm going to anyway. Recently, the NC state legislature has enacted a mind-boggling piece of legislation, called "The Bathroom Bill", or HB2. I'll give you my understanding of...

    Motorcycle Stands

    I'm looking for opinions from folks on motorcycle stands, front and rear. I'm looking for a set for my garage that I could use on multiple motorcycles (street bikes, not track)- sort of universally applicable, mostly for wheel removal. This means paddle-style swingarm stand for the rear...

    Ford Edge?

    Looking at replacing a 2012 Jeep Wrangler. Thought I loved it, put a mild lift and some nice, black 33's on it, but the rustic charm is wearing a bit thin. It's been a good tow vehicle - open trailer, 2 bikes. But it's a total mall-crawler, and honestly exhausting to drive for longer...

    Lemonade season-ender (spoiler alert)

    For the 2 people following my sadly neglected ride report (insert excuse here) I just wanted to let you know that I landed a new role that I'm excited about, starting in early November. You know what that means. One last trip. I'm going to take a week starting on Saturday and head south...

    Headed North - The Lemonade Tour

    In January, I took a new job. I left a company I was with for 12 years for something new - a chance to be a part of something really interesting. It was a high risk, high reward sort of gig. Long story short, there were a log of things wrong with the situation, and I wasn't happy. But I...

    SV650 Track bike running poorly

    Full backstory, may not all be relevant but I'll include it in case - I have a 99 SV650 (carburated) track bike that's been in storage for a while. Float bowls were drained, bike was put on a trickle charger, gas tank full of Shell 91 with Seafoam in to stabilize it. Kept (mostly) in a heated...

    NC bound

    Leaving Saturday for a week. Going to spend a couple of days in Linville just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, and then headed to Robbinsville for the usual Deal's Gap nonsense. I head down there every year, and while the area around the Dragon is starting to get a bit old for me, I'm headed down...

    Track bodywork

    I have an FZ1 (gen2) that I'm considering tracking, and there doesn't seem to be track bodywork available for it. I'm wondering what folks do if there's no bodywork available for their bike - I can't be the first person to have run into this problem. Is there anyone that has experience doing...
