Re: What did you do today...

Lol no still as single as ever. Not a student, I've decided that while I love to learn, school just isn't my place. I'm working at a factory making wind turbine blades now. Vestas V110 blades to be specific.

What are you up to? Still making trouble in the great not-so-white north?

Re: suzuki bandit smoking

If it's after 30 seconds I'd say it's burning a little oil. Does it continue past that? If so, sounds like something is worn in your engine (probably valve guide seals). If not, you're fine, just keep on riding.

Re: Cee Bailey vs. Rifle

The vent is actually pretty remarkable for how much it helps in a hot environment, especially at low speeds.

I've ridden those DRs, they're great bikes!

Re: Wrider's Scribblings

Unfortunately that's not quite true with sportbike tires on a long straight commute. My commute is about 25 miles each way on the highway, so they get squared off really fast. Besides, I drive the Forester, which gets about 25-26 MPG on average, and the bike averages around 40. Not to mention that b...

Not if you have a modicum of self control. A friend has a turbo gsxr1k that's never seen more than 80 on the roads...
