Added reply in a thread Camping vs Hotel 11/13/2020 12:29 PM

I race Hare Scrambles and a year and a half ago I bought a toy hauler to camp at the track. Great in theory but I store my camper at a storage facility so If I go to the races Friday I generally go pick it up Tuesday to get it loaded and ready. Get to ... more »

You are not derailing it at all and Jeff was saying exactly what I have been experiencing. My pigeon-toed walk has made pointing my feet in a natural position. I no longer even really think about squeezing he tank because it automatically does it with ... more »

If you don't mind me asking, how much cash did it cost? I'm assuming that insurance told you to kick rocks.... I went to see a stem cell doctor and looking at my x-rays even he said it would never be like a new knee but it would get better. Trouble is ... more »

Oh, I have had that discussion with a few docs and physiologists. Yeah, I'm most likely jacking other stuff up but it's mostly just evening wear out.

Mine was caused by moto, football, hockey, wrestling and lifting too much weights without regard for my personal health. My knee seems to feel better after riding but the next couple days after a race are rough.

Here's the deal, my left knee is absolute junk with a bone on bone condition. I have been in pretty much constant pain limping for the past 3 or 4 years. I'm 53 and my doctor says to wait as long as I can for a new knee because they don't last forever ... more »

Who doesn't give James Stewart credit for his ability to do the uhhhh errrr Bubba Scrub? Kinda silly hot take if you ask me. James is the one who made it a thing and no one ever discounts that. Of course after doing it for so long people are going to ... more »

Added reply in a thread Oil Levels on dirt bike 11/10/2020 12:56 PM

Not always the case. Some bikes like to run less oil if the crankcase has a lot of pressure and it doesn't vent as well as it should. Completely different animal but in my past life I was a master Harley tech (go ahead and insert Harley joke) and one ... more »

Last piece of advice I have is if you can carry it for a while take it off Craigslist for a month or so. When you post again you want it to look like it's new to the market. Just like real estate a lowered price or changed ad is worse than a fresh one ... more »

Regarding where it is parked, try some pictures in a cement driveway. Don't even have to park it at your house. I live close to the Daytona International Speedway and I'd drive over there. You get the idea, vehicle condition matters and the backdrop ... more »

You asked for honest sooooooooooooo It is a really nice rig but it is presented shabbily. It doesn't matter one bit but the potential buyers see unmade beds and it doesn't scream well cared for. Just like in real estate people pay companies to "Stage" ... more »

I don't call mine calves, they are cows.... Strange everyone going SG-12's instead of 10's because I think my SG-10's have quite a bit more room than my SG-12's,

How exactly did they ruin Alta? Alta was making good bikes and they were getting better but their business model was crap. Once Harley uncovered just how bad the books were they GTFO. The only bad part is H-D didn't use their extremely deep pockets and ... more »

When you say paint pen do you mean the pens where you depress the tip to get the paint flowing?

I'm not sure what you mean by toners. Do you have a link to anything like that?

Exactly, when he had a bad day he minimized it. The sayings that you win championships on your bad days is true.

I called in last night and I was caught off guard by how fast they got to me so my thoughts were a little (lot) disjointed and I may or may not have sounded like a moron. I said that I've seen some people talking about the season should have an asterisk ... more »

That is probably the winner idea. Obviously it's a dirt bike and meant to get bashed up but I do like things to look as good as possible.
