    Agreed 100%. Enough of this archaic chain drive nonsense.

    I’d vote for belt drive. If stones are a problem, simply enclose it.

    I just had to do the math. Even if Stabil was 100% alcohol (which it’s not), the recommended storage dose of 1 ounce per 2.5 gallons of gasoline would result in the gasoline’s alcohol content being...

    I ride when I can in the winter, road conditions permitting. Even in the Midwest, summers can still be brutal, and I ride much less in the heat. If there is anytime I would remove a battery from a...

    I question the wisdom of bringing the battery into a warm environment, unless there is no other way to keep it charged. It is my observation that heat ages batteries, and cold storage in the off...
