Re: Do you warm up the motorcycle or just turn the key and go?

Now that I have an older bike with a carb instead of fuel injection, it needs to warm up or it is rough and misses.

The one I had is this...... https://www.revzilla.com/dirt-bike/moose-racing-easy-pull-clutch-system?sku_id=429354 You could also ask your motorcycle mechanic to change the clutch spring.

Re: The Blog of Blues

At first, I wondered to myself, "what were you thinking?" But three weeks into it, I realize it has been a...

More (and clearer) pictures are coming out showing that Ducati is indeed ditching the treillis frame for an aluminium one. What do you guys think of the new look ?

Re: Hey!

I'm Kevin from Utah. I'm a freelance app developer and I ride a 2018 Yamaha MT-09. I've only started motorcycling around 6 to 7 years ago. I just think I gotta learn more and that's the reason why I joined this community. I hope everyone's doing okay. Welcome to TMW. Is it riding season yet in Utah?

I've been busy at work, I am thinking about filing a vacation leave soon. I can't wait for this pandemic to be over so I can go out safely.
Me, too. (Not the work part), but I sure would like a road trip.

Re: The Blog of Blues

This is the first time I have logged onto TMW with my phone.
I was going to upload a picture but darn..
Even the cell picture is too big.

I'll try to resize it.

My bike is put away for the season.

I think they are smart making their bikes more versatile. They will capture a new market. I also saw an article, that HD is making an electric bicycle.

Hello, William. Enjoy the forums.
I have never heard of the brand of motorcycle you have. Gezichta. Where does it come from?
