I saw a guy pushing his bike along the freeway about 3 months ago, at about 10pm on a cold night. I figured he ran out of gas, and I had a 1 gallon fuel can on my truck, so I decided to offer to give him a lift to the gas station to help him out. I stopped, put my hazards on, and started to walk back towards him.

When he got within ear shot, I said: "Run out of gas?"

He looked up, out of breath from pushing, and simply grunted: "Mind ya fuckin' business, guy".

I laughed, got in my truck where the heater was running and went on my way. I guess some people have too much pride to accept a helping hand from a stranger.


I always stop to offer a hand if it looks like someone is stranded or stuck on their bike. I've also had people stop for me when I needed it. Gotta look out for each other out there.

I was basically just off a highway exit, where it was semi-safe to pull over. I was quite obviously not supposed to stop there as everyone had to swerve around my bike...

people stopped at the light (which was 10 ft away) and looked and knew something was up, but nobody said a gahdamn thing. (except for the one guy that asked directions in cantonese).

cultural difference, thats it. if i was home in texas, almost everyone that was on a bike would have stopped, and most people that OWNED a bike would have at least checked out the situation.

im safe, and if thats the worst thing that happens to me today, im good with it.

i ran out of gas the night a picked by cb550 up.

then i ran out of gas going to work one day.

thank jeebus for a fuel gauge and freshly rebuilt carbs

first time, ok w/e it had no fuel in it, oh well lesson learned.

2nd time there was a huge hole in the parking lot where my bike had dumped 2 gallons of gas after i had let it sit for 4 days when i flew down to s.c.

So...

2004+ SV650, 07 CBR 600RR or something silly like a new CBR250RR or RC51?

Thinking about something a bit more flickable than the Speed3 that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, as the Speedy should be sticking around. P.S. the stupid Audi will not be sticking around, and will be devoting the fruits of it's absence to the cause.

RC51 is one of the least flickable bikes I can think of. Great to ride, but a bit of a pig in the corners. But omg zeh powah

Edit: Relevant...


Don't get me started.

Saturday: 84 degrees. Sunny. Warm. Calm. Evening at 65, perfect for riding.

Sunday: High temperature reached at 2am, of 55. By 7AM, snow and freezing rain

Monday: Snow, winds of 65 mph.

Tuesday: Warm! Winds of 65mph...

77 degrees, 98% humidity. AT 7AM!! You guys are trying to ditch winter, and im loathing the fact that summer is approaching.

Real rough idle on startup this morning (humidity was about 50% yesterday), is there any way to adjust for this? Bike was fine after about a 5 minute warm up and then put under load.....

unkown
looks way more worn from the angle i took it at.

they looked very lightly used when i bought the bike with 22,800
I just hit 26,000 last night. I was planning on new tires before I go to Kentucky.

But they are the road attacks 2 so they really can't be that old as conti just realeased them a couple years ago.

I was more poking fun at the one guy who posted a picture of his tire and said how cool small chicken strips were.
