Re: Ladies lounge?

Hi MOG, and it was really cool seeing the forum again - I haven't been here in a LOOOONG time, lol In fact I lived in London for 8 months in 2008 since I have been on this forum :)

Nice to see it again and nice to meet you! :)

Re: Ladies lounge?

Wow, that post was put on in 2005 and within the last couple of days there have been several posts LOLOLOL Saddly, I no longer even have a bike (I traded in for a convertable after the wreck) so .... I just thought it was funny that it has been 7 years since the original posted :)

I am actually pretty good with reading the mannuel, as long as it has pictures that show me the exact places to work. :) I fixed my kill switch and replaced the battery with only the mannuel and my common sense as a guide.

Hey Wrider, It is a 93 Suzuki Intruder 800. I guess some insane person thought ...hey, let's put the battery all the way underneath the bike so no one can get to it with out a lot of trouble because obviously that is something that will never have to be replaced :roll: :frusty: Ah well, and the beat...

Well, I was telling them in the ladies lounge that the battery is underneath the bike on some kind of panel that lowers somehow and if it wasn't so hard to get to I might have already tried to work on it, but it is amazingly insane to try and get to it. :( But thanks for the welcomes and the encoura...

Well, the battery is underneath the entire bike on a little pannel that has to be lowered to get to it. If it was more accessable I might not mind so much, but it is massivly hard to work with underneath the bike.

However, thanks for the encouragement:)

Well first I wrecked it in a "soft" slide. Then I waited a year for someone to fix it who never quite could get it done. So, I bought the book and talked to a guy I know who used to ride a lot who is now blind and he talked me though rebuilding the clutch master cylander and then bleeding the line. ...

Thanks everyone. I talked to a lawyer today and there are pluses and minuses, but over all he said that they should never have to go to court because they would rather settle out and not risk much much more. My lawyer rides a bike :) Just a note to everyone in the states. Apparently, neither an acci...

It slid on it's side. in fact it didn't completely touch on the side of the bike because the foot rest under the clutch jammed halfway up and dug into the pavment which slowed the bike down considerably and kept if from sliding completely on it's side. The clutch wires attached to the handlebars hav...

The bike was a 93 Suzuki Intruder 800 , but it only had 14,000 miles on it and was in really good shape except for the seat, and or course the new one I had ordered came in the same day :)

Proper percedure when facing a collision

Hey everyone, I need the answer to a question please from the experienced riders in our group. When a car pulls out in front of you and you have traffic on either side, is it the best thing to lay down the bike in an attempt to miss the car, or not?? I was in a motorcycle accident on 9/09 and a lady...

Difference between a good friend and a true friend

A Good friend will bail you out of jail, but a True Friend will be sitting on the seat beside you saying, "Damn, that was fun." The difference between a northern fairy tale and a southern fairy tale A northern fairy tale begins with... "Once upon a time..." A southern fairy tale begins with... "Yall...

Funny how life is isn't it!!! It didn't matter what I was looking at because she didn't see me at al and pulled right out in front of me leaving me no option but to drop the bike. At least because I was paying attention to her, I was able to slow down enough before ditching that I didn't hit her. So...

You know it Strad! I will be investing in some good chaps as soon as I get the bike and me fixed :) My knees are burned pretty good and one elbow where my jacket came off one arm. One hand is in a splint because they think I snapped a tendon in the back of my hand, but I don't know how bad the bike ...
