When you get told that something isn't the cause because it was just worked on, you can pretty much guarantee that it actually is the problem or that something else went wrong during the repair. When I repaired machinery for a living, I learned fast ... more »

I was guessing ISDE qualifier to see how he stacks up against the rest of the Italian squad?

Reply to Kenny come out of the closet!!! 2/27/2022 11:27 AM

In reality, there is only a handful of riders that will jump back on their bike asap and get back in the fight. It seems like most guys lag to get back going and then phone it in for the rest of the race. Same thing when they get passed. How many guys ... more »

One of them is moving forward and the other is a moving road block heading backwards.

He did look stoned to the bone in those posts. In all honesty, he took a knife to a gun fight and made it happen. A victory lap on those who talked trash on him for views or clicks is fine with me.

Even more painful is that they go to random old footage

Reply to Clutch Replacement: Do you replace the steel plates ever time you do a clutch? 1/4/2022 8:52 AM

To me, it seems like cheap insurance to make sure everything is fresh. I don't think there is anything wrong with reusing old plates that are still in spec but, you need to make sure that they actually are in spec.. Most people don't have a surface plate ... more »

Reply to California law bans small off-road gas engines, including lawnmowers and chainsaws 10/11/2021 7:40 PM

Does the ban include all of the gas powered chain saws that the guys use when fighting forest fires? Newsom couldn't be that stupid could he?

Running all of that electric would cost a fortune and how would they charge you for this extra service?

1 in wide gaffers tape from Amazon.

Reply to CA 2 stroke ban 7/10/2021 8:40 PM

It's always funny to see the don't come here comments. They are going there to get away from the Democrats policies and are willing to drop everything to do so. It will only make those states more red and CA more blue.

Reply to Use Motosport, RMATV has bad customer service IMO 7/3/2021 4:42 PM

Motosport is a hot mess. They had a free shipping sale so, I ordered some spare parts for my knee braces. Of course, they didn't have them and put them on back order. Every month or so, they would send me an email saying that I would get them when EVS ... more »

Reply to Use Motosport, RMATV has bad customer service IMO 7/3/2021 4:28 PM

A couple of years ago, I ordered a blind bearing puller set and bearings from them. The puller set wasn't as cheap as on Amazon but, it got me over for free shipping and made the job 10x easier. A few weeks later, I got an email saying that they had ... more »

Reply to PSA to Honda Ridgeline fans 6/8/2021 5:36 PM

It's nice to see someone building a small truck again. Everyone else seems to have slowly grown their small trucks into more like mid sized trucks. It would be really nice to see that in an extended cab version that gains back some bed length.

Reply to How did Pala Raceway start? 6/1/2021 7:38 PM

One of the guys who either was the dude or close enough to know posts on here so, hopefully, he can chime in.

Reply to I bought a stolen bike? 5/24/2021 4:02 PM

Don't just give it back because someone says it is theirs. You paid and have a bill of sale. Make the court decide to take it from you. That would set the precedent that your seller sold you stolen goods. You have a receipt from them so it should be ... more »

Reply to This is Crazy 5/22/2021 10:00 AM

Damn, I think that I need to unload the 125 that I haven't been using. Does anyone know what a nice 2004 RM125 would go for in CA?

Reply to Kind Of Like Carlsbad Re-Opening. This is Huge. 4/6/2021 5:15 PM

Scroll in a little closer and you can see that the track and access road are still there. Years ago, we would ride over from Gilman Springs and ride there. I don't know if it is still possible since they have been working on widening the 60.
