P2210293 by Jeff Johnson, on Flickr YAY! Thanks, mnTwin! Patience definitely paid off for me this time. I bet I saw two dozen bikes during my search, including 5 in one marathon day. Rode a Moto Guzzi Norge and an R1100S. Almost bought a sweet, sweet 2004 R1150R Rockster w...

Sam Taylor, +1 for dino oil. My 96 owners manual is very specific about using old school oil. So I stick with it. I use the Castrol 20w50 engine oil and dino gear oil as spec shows it. No leaks anywhere and gives good service life....

Being able to adjust them makes me wonder how they were from factory over the years. What I find so strange is it is a "infinity" adjustment meaning you could turn them all you want as long as the cam lobe jig goes on in the right orientation to the cam lobes. I would...

Yes, probably the smart money is on KTM. I'd think that as long as Rossi is still an active factory rider for Yamaha he won't enter 'his' team as a satellite . Too much to manage at one time. But, I could be wrong. Besides, Dorna has said that when and if Rossi wants Sky V...

Restrict any gun to 3 shots, I don't care what it looks like but if you want an "assault" rifle, join the military or volunteer at your local police department. Just heard Wayne LaPierre avoided service during Vietnam because he had a "nervous condition". Mayb...

I do not think you need to remove the muffler unless you are looking for more noise or less weight. The AF-XIED has adjustments so you can dial in the performance with the stock or a modded setup. I left it at the default setting of #7 on each side, as their suggestion seemed to...

I have a V1 in my car and in my truck. Both not in plain site ( the reason I love the V1 is the remote display) When I get my tank bag setup on the bike, it will get one too. I ran the same setup in my Hayabusa. Only the remote display visible on the dash. I mainly use it to keep...

There's an old saying I learned as a kid; after a failed hop-up of my 1972 Suzuki TS90 enduro bike. A once stock, reliable runner turned into a ticking time bomb. "If you want a faster motorcycle, buy one" RPG...

Hi all, since Nina and yours truly moved to Italy that of course also means new friends and new riding opportunities. Back in 2016 we met Enrico Grassi, via Facebook, and we've become friends since. Now, Enrico did what I did... he left the corporate rat race and decided that he...

I rarely wear shoes at home or when driving. The combination of these two resulted in pulling into the restaurant parking lot in another town sans shoes. One year at the Death Valley get-together in Beatty, NV, as was my procedure, I toss in a pair of Converse Chuck Taylor ...

My luggage was lost by the airline when starting a cruise. By the time the cruise was over and we got back home, it finally showed up. Another time my bag had more frequent miles on a trip than I did as it was flown back and forth a couple of times. In retrospect, no big deal, ...
