How You Can Improve Your Comfort While Riding
thx for the suggestions. the last time i checked it was twisting just fine back in the summer but it’s sat outside covered since then. probably corrosion now you mention it, but probably not kinked cables since the bike hasn’t moved.
thanks. when my bike broke down on 280 many months ago, the nice guy that pulled over put the hooks of his tie downs on where the handlebars meet the front fork (he knew what he was doing).
my mom said a uhaul is too expensive, so i’m gonna find a truck to put it on sometime in the next few months, and drive it down to LA. does anyone have a truck ramp or motorcycle tow trailer i could borrow for a weekend at that time?
what’s the advantage of canyon dancers to regular tie downs with hooks on the end?
i’ll take video the next time i get an opportunity… been busy lately…
i’m crazy dumb…. so since i couldn’t get the fairing off… i didn’t look around for the drain plug, i just went for the first thing… and it was the air flow tube…. i shoulda looked….
so now the problem is basically getting the fairing off so i can get the filter off….. i can’t believe i’m an engineer…. and took off the wrong screw…. at least it wasn’t for fuel or something, cuz nothing came out…. hahaha…. i’mma laugh for days…
the bike is a ’95…. and what a waste of time….
i just figured it out right now cuz i was still curious cuz something about that screw didn’t seem right, so i took a mirror and a light (beats feel)… and saw there are two screws… one is the oil drain plug, the other for another tube….
bring on the laughs….
w/ all the fees (on top of msrp) should come out to like $3800ish

I have a beginner ninja 500. zero-to-sixty in 3.76 seconds, max speed is 120mph. Even riding 2-up, it’s plenty fast for a freeway. Honestly… do I really need a faster bike?
I’ll stick with buying used bikes hopefully broken in correctly and maintenanced correctly, and also to mention, cheaper, and no tire shine (=
yep, it feels very comfortable. i sat on my friend’s CBR600 and you are way more leaned forward.
Lightly sore where i caught myself, bike got scratched up a lil. There were witnesses the first time i rode on the street… witnessing me stall many many times…
started riding my new used bike this week (= already downed it on a slow uturn when i hit a curb and went over… good thing it was slow and there were no cars around…but i don’t think i was suppose to make a uturn there anyways… haha
Figure 8s and small uturns… i suck at them…
I’m a leather guy myself. I guess just how much you’re willing to pay for a medical bill in case something happens. My skin is valuable to me also, and so I invested in leather.
i haven’t started riding to work yet, and i’m kinda scared to with my work laptop, but i finish most of my work usually while i’m there… just gotta bring it home on weekends… anyways, go engineers! wooT!
