    My speedometer rattles! Help!

    I used double sided tape a few years ago and it's worked fine ever since. If you do it right you can't even notice it.

    What Not To Wear (while riding)

    Pretty sure this guy has a buddy with a matching White 675R who wiped out last weekend too (8 days ago) . Probably from doing something stupid like this.

    Motorcycle Pictures... Post All Your Pics Here

    Thanks for the tip Jon! I noticed that as well but wasn't sure if it was due to the "Standard" geometry of the bike or not. Definitely something to work on in the future. I purchased Pilot Road 2's late last year because I was commuting up to Anaheim every so often and mostly cruising...

    Motorcycle Pictures... Post All Your Pics Here

    Palomar Mountain Fun Took the bike up to Palomar Moutain for the 3rd weekend in a row on Sunday. 3 weekends ago I was one of those idiots in jeans pushing way to hard, but then I wised up a bit and got some leathers (albeit cheap ones) and decided to ease off a bit. I'm a work in...

    you guys would be surprised at how easy it is to make a typo like that. As someone who oversees our (the company i work for) email campaigns you get a sense for how easy it is to screw up. You can have anywhere from 1-4 people involved in setting up a single email campaign. The guy creating...

    Any thoughts on a bigger rear tire

    It could also be the fact that they're better tires than stock, so they would have felt better regardless of if they're 160 or 180.

    Cool beer I found

    Great beer indeed! Stone brewing company is about 20 minutes from where I live here in SD. It's an awesome brewery and a great place to kick back, have some drinks and relax. If you're an IPA man, I invite you to check out their Ruination IPA. It's delicious. Stone Ruination IPA

    Motorcyclist gets neck sliced by string.

    The strings on a stunt kite are sharp enough to cut skin by themselves. Hell, they can cut other stunt kites strings very easily . No glass needed.

    What Not To Wear (while riding)

    No preaching out of me. Just a simple question which seemed to strike a chord. Yes I speed. Yes I wear gear and yes I believe well over 50% of riders would attempt to put their hands down during a high-side or low side. This is why my question was directed to those who wear jackets, yet...

    What Not To Wear (while riding)

    Thanks for giving me your take on it. I don't preach gear, as far as i'm concerned Darwinism will run its course. Regardless of someone doing the speed limit or not, if you are wearing a jacket, why aren't you wearing gloves. It seems silly to me - if you fall you're naturally going to put your...
