If you already have the windscreen off and bring it into a tint shop they can probably do it really cheap most of the cost of tinting on cars comes from the labor of removing all the doorpanels and crap. Bring it in, the cost of tint and maybe labor for 1/2 hour shouldn't run you more then like 30$ ...

If I bought a used bike or car I'd change all the fluids, check the belts, spark plugs and other things like that. Plus I'd get my brother mechanic to do it 8]

Re: I've ridden ATVs and Dirt Bikes

I've ridden very powerful, and fast ATVs and Dirt Bikes, (manual transmissions and wet clutches alike). I had a very fast learning curve on those and ride them on busy tracks a lot. Can I start off on a SV650S or a Gixxer 650 ? I want cheap insurance and complete safety (due to parents and lackage ...

people say sand is like riding on ball bearings but how much sand? I live in an area with lots of construction sites to seeing sand filled inbetween the paved roads is common but it dosn't seem to effect to much on riding over them?

Fall/Winter is the best time to ride as far as I'm concerned as long as you're not in an area where it snows.. Riding in FL in the summer has to suck in my case!

It's most likely he's already fitted the helmet and was looking for a cheaper price on ebay. If it's still factory wrapped I'd say go for it w/ insurance on shipping and marked in a box labeled fragile. I wouldn't get a helmet I know has been used and don't know what has happened to it.

Africa is a continent, it is not uniform throughout. I imagine in Somalia there is no problem using shotguns as an alarm system. Wouldn't an industrial chain + padlock on the back wheel to around some part of the bikes frames/handlebars/engine be enough to stop someone? One of those big chains and l...
