The best way to get people to slow down would be to require auto makers attach a big knife to the center of the steering wheel with the point facing the driver.

Thanks for the advice guys. I'll stick with a stock carb. Buzzz, you are right; it seems silly how some of these "businesses" aren't run like a business. My buddy wants to test ride a V-Strom 1000 and that same store won't service this brand new bike for him to take a spin on it. Crazy. So, same her...

DR-Z 250 Carb

O.K. After much screwing around with the spark plug, I decided to look in to the fuel system for the reason the thing wouldn't start. In my enthusiasm to clean the carb, I broke the leg that holds the pin that holds the float in place-totally irreparable. So, it looks as though I'll have to replace ...

I took the old battery in first and the guy at the parts store put a meter on it. The meter indicated that the battery was a 75% and 12.3 v. So, I thought the same thing about loose connections and put it back on, checked all the connections but to no avail. That's when I said to heck with it just g...

No, I didn't check the water in the battery. I was in the middle of nowhere and I just wanted to go forward, not monkey around with it. The sticker on the battery was dated 2005. It should have been o.k. I'm guessing.

First day trip on Intruder

I finally got a chance to take my bike, a 2000 Intruder 1500, for a long ride. I needed to check on a project about 150 miles away, so I thought it would be fun to ride my bike especially with the forecasted highs of upper 70's. Bubbling with excitement, I woke at about quarter till five Thursday mo...

Now what?

Despite, or because of, the approval of my wife, as in, "Do whatever in the hell you like," I bought a 2000 Intruder 1500 LC. Rides like a dream. I am so totally happy so far. Bought it Saturday morning....Sunday morning I noticed that one of my butthole dogs chewed two corners of one of my saddleba...

Thanks for the advice. My buddy says the same thing. I do intend to ride it long distance more than commute with it. I like the V Star as well. Plus it would be easier to convince the ball and chain if I bought something less expensive. My first bike was a Shadow, so it was pretty light.

Royal Star

Holy cow....I have got the itch to ride a bike again. Real bad. I have looked at a 2006 Royal Star and it's driving me crazy to get on it. The dealer is asking $12,600. Is this a good price? I bought another machine there a few months ago and the sales guy told me they sometimes took the bikes out t...
