    Due to cold weather and some health issues, I’m not going to be able to ride for the next four weeks. This puts me into December and the likelihood of finding favorable riding conditions looks slim. For those that see a couple of months of storage, what do you put in the tank? Stabil...

    Tipping. It’s getting out of hand.

    Rant: I am seeing more and more when I order food and pre pay it asks for a tip. Since when do you tip for good service before you get any kind of service? I don’t mind tipping and generously when I receive good service. I am having a hard time wrapping my head around tipping when I pay...

    Coming down off of center stand

    After the previous thread about if you use the side stand or center stand it got me thinking. I always put my bike on the center stand when parked in its spot in the garage at home. When getting on the bike to go I usually stand on the pegs and rock the bike off the center stand. I try...

    Rear Ended my biggest fear.

    I had the fun experience of getting rear ended whilst driving on the interstate. Luckily I still need to swap tires on my bike so I was in my truck. I have a fear -phobia of being rear ended on my bike. I had a adjustable hitch in my receiver and it took all the impact. It probably totaled...

    Favorite Bikes, Post up your story

    One of my favorite bikes. It was the summer of 1989 and I had a good buddy that just bought a Honda Magna 750. He had a Suzuki GN400 prior to this and let me borrow it for a week or so. Having ridden mainly dirt bikes prior to this, I fell in love with that GN. It was so simple. Easy kick...

    Premium fuel,mid grade or regular?

    So far I have ran premium fuel in my bike. I live at approximately 5000 ft in elevation. I have read from other members that they are running just regular. What is your experience running fuel other than premium? At my elevation is this a waste to run premium? Thoughts?

    Soft sided cooler
