Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Here's a nice Synchros mtb stem for $35 shipped.
That thing is not that heavy duty? I got lucky on Craigslist I scored 4 BMX kiddy type bikes with the great big old school style handlebars and old school necks. The ones with lots of metal to them! I gotta be able to carry groceries etc or life is just rough at 40 mph with a grocery trailer lol.
Still gotta have a since of humor.
