Re: Helmet Fit : Pinched Cheeks?

Try helmets from other brands. You will notice that the other brands will be like getting half sizes from each other. Also with glasses flip-ups are a lot easier to get on and off. I had trouble trying to poke the earpeaces in after I put the standard full face helmet on, and the flip up goes on wit...

Re: So I jumped my battery after winter, spring, half of sum

And yes you want to refrain from using your car to jump a bike. Bike batteries are made to handle a 2 amp or less charge rate.

If you have a car battery charger that has a 5 amp or less trickle charge, use that instead.
If you don't have a car battery charger with trickle charge, get one.

Re: So I jumped my battery after winter, spring, half of sum

If you ran it for 15 minutes and the lights went back to dim as it was before, you need a new battery. How old and what type of battery is it? The wet cell motorcycle batteries that you get where you usually have the store add the acid last for about 4 months, or one riding season. The Gell cell bat...

Re: Non-canvas boots...

I wear Timberland safety toe boots and love them. I tried Wolverines but the tread kept getting hung on the pegs. I had to lift my foot off of the peg after shifting to go into the riding position. The Timberlands don't have a big step in the tread at the arch on the boot like the wolverines. Someth...

Pam, Thanks for sharing that story again. I remember stumbling across it before, but not the pictures. That in itself is good advertisement for wearing your gear. I still don't have the milage under my seat but starting to feel comfortable riding. This will at least keep me from becoming too comfort...

I don't know if I would want a "men's room" on the board. That just doesn't leave any good images to mind.

Basically what I am saying is that with that rubber mallet, and the half shovel, you can use carpet padding and acheive the same result.

Seriously, you can use that rubber mallet with the half swing that they are using on your bare hand.

Sonce you are a JackAss fan, that looks like Wee Man's shovel.

The problem with gasoline is that after most of it evaporates it leaves behind a gooey substance resembling laquer. I have a lawn tractor that I have never put stabilizer in and have had to clean the shutoff needle 3 times in 12 years. I have also seen the laquer left behind in one of my 5 gallon ga...

I,d like to see them use something more substantial like a 5 pound maul instead of that tiny rubber mallet, or the shovels with the half handles.

You can go to Suzuki's web site and buy it. They are going for $90 bucks now. Just bring up your model and down toward the bottom should be a link to the manuals.

I haven't seen any Haynes or Clymers manuals on the newer than 2006 models.

I learned on the GZ-250 also. during the two days I had two different bikes. I liked the first one better. Compared to the 250 my Suzuki M50 shifts like butter. The bikes that you ride in the class are very well abused bikes so don't compare those for how well they shift, but for how much abuse they...
