    What's your first bike? With a picture please.

    Did he not like y'all? :D Those thing were dangerous, or could be depending how they were ridden.

    New Yamaha MT-09!! Made from scratch to replace previous models.

    I thought the '21 looked a lot shorter, but when I checked, the wheelbase is only .4" shorter than the '20. I wouldn't have thought the 900cc class was the future, but maybe Yama-mama knows best.

    What's your first bike? With a picture please.

    The very first motorized, two wheeled conveyance that I rode, was my mom's Honda Hobbit moped. My first motorcycle, purchased with my money, was a '77 Yamaha XS 360; kickstart only. I might have a picture of me, and the Yamaha; definitely none of me and the Honda. But, this pic is what the...

    As long as she keeps starting is all that counts. I'm not replacing my OE battery until I have my first starting issue. I do recommend getting a Battery Tender, and using it daily. My battery will be four years old in December, and I have killed it twice. I feel that the 'Tender is the only...

    tired of chit-chat?- post / view a picture only here.

    All I get is skunks, opossums, armadillos, and the like. Nothing cool like that. The closest I get is a stray horse or cow. :(

    S10 vsersus S10 ZE

    Hmmmm. . . . now that you mention it. . . . I don't think that I've seen many problems with the e-suspension. Cruise control is a much more common complaint, and most of those issues are cured with clutch/brake switch cleaning. I'm hoping that the suspension has the standard Yamaha...

    The front plug would be much easier, and controllable.

    The exercises themselves are not the problem. It's the speed at which they do them, and the weight that they're using. The speed causes loss of form. . . . throw a couple hundred pounds into the mix, and that's where the injuries start.

    Food Porn

    One of the few foods not on my "get in my belly list". But, my wife gave it a resounding "that's what I'm talking about". Of course she also likes biscuits & gravy, and chicken fried steak. Yeah. . . . she country.

    Yeah, they get thirsty if they spend a lot of time over 80mph.

    Yamaha Super Tenere MOTO-TAG photo game

    Yes. . . . that would require you to have reached master level.

    Overfilled The Oil

    If it's just over the top line, window covered. . . . magic is right. . . . no worries. My '17 ran the last 6,300 mile that way. 'Cuz, it goes from "not enough". . . . to "well, shit, that's too much" with just a few ounces. If you just have to drain some out. . . . use the front bolt. It...

    Cross fit is ok. . . . if you're under the age of 35. . . . or want to destroy your joints. I told him that I'd push him around in a wheel chair. He reminded me that it wouldn't be the first time.
