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

    I've ran as much as 8 ounces a gallon on REAL CHEAPO engines that I wasn't too sure of for break in. Some of these engines need all the help they can get. And like I said, I've NEVER blown an engine.(yet). Even after break in I'll still run a little heavy on the oil. Smokes a little but I'm sure it's getting enough.

    LOL, ayup Sgt.

    Up my way, town hall used to give away bike helmets for kids.


    I have thought about this for a long time. Bike repair, maint. school for at risk kids. Be a great confidence builder for the no dad, bad dad kids.


    But back on topic, all's I get to do lately is miss my bike. Could probably finish wood with the gas in the tank by now.

    sheesh

    I rode mine to go see some fireworks with my wife. It was great to be able to dodge all the backed up traffic. I could pedal, walk, cut over grass and curbs, and motor down alleys.

    hahaha. We do that too. Works best if you mash them first.

    My wife paced me with the car, said I was going 33mph, up a slight grade, on my Dax bike. Yay!

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

    That is awesome, Sgt. Howard. I like your story. I am glad the people borrowing the bikes did not take them, and that the police were happy to meet you instead of writing tickets or confiscating bikes. Helmets are a good idea though. Try Walmart for this helmet. It's inexpensive and "not too dorky". It's a bike or skate helmet ($15-20, fits pretty nice, a little heavy, looks like a bowling ball)

    Razor Youth Helmet $18 http://www.walmart.com/ip/Razor-Youth-Helmet/4861076

    Kryptonix Adult Helmet $15 http://www.walmart.com/ip/Kryptonics-Adult-Helmet-Red/14644809 [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Bugs are terrible. I live near a bunch of fields, and when the bugs are in their mating seasons it's IMPOSSIBLE to ride (and really, really gross).

    I got caught in a light rain storm today on the way home and forgot my sun glasses from work. Holy cow it was zero visibility. Mainly because I refused to slow down and wanted to beat the storm to the house.

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

    JC Whitney catalog has some motorcycle windshields that can fit some bicycles and mabs. I think a windshield on a bicycle would likely be a major headache regarding handling of the machine on the road and putting into storage, but if you've got a strong motor and are just getting killed by bugs, this might be your answer. $85

    At 14x14 in, right about your chest area, it might not actually be that bad. Plus it can be removed (stalks can come out of the clips).

    You can get some ATV goggles and helmet for less, though, and add or delete equipment as needed for weather and bugs.

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

    Well, the brake caliper bracket arrived but no brake arm. I got a PM at eBay, the guy said he can't locate the part he sold me, asked if he could substitute another in it's place. It looked identical so I said ok. Still no notification of shipping...

    Looks like it'a time to actually start working on the bike. I'll have another go at getting photo's to DL :p
