    I even had one of the recalled chains (improper heat treat, possible brittle links) and gave up on maintenance since the replacement part was free and rode around on that for a year or two before...

    As a point of reference, I tend to do the backing of the bike without a passenger on, then have her hop on when we're ready to move forwards. Much easier to keep upright that way.

    Oh absolutely, any time any part of the machine is changed you would need to have that particular make/model/year with that particular modification assessed to become certified. All I'm saying is I...

    Can you explain this statement? I'm not seeing anything that I can pick out that would keep it from being legal, aside from the fact I doubt they will go through the appropriate testing to actually...

    Rode in to work in the rain at 6C (279K, 502R, 43F), "feels like" 2C (275K, 495R, 36F) and I'm sure feels much colder when wet at 120km/h (33.3 m/s, 65Kts, 75MPH).
    Should be 22C (295K, 531R, 72F)...

    The fact stands that they could have eliminated basically all engine vibrations (smooth as an inline 4) with a biaxial balance shaft and they chose to go with a single uniaxial shaft and leave in...

    "An extra balancer shaft was added to make the engine feel refined, while retaining the distinct “throb” delivered by its 270-degree firing order. A unique intake-port layout and valve timing that’s...

    Lugging the engine and an engine that vibrates at low RPM are two different things though. Have you ever ridden a Harley? Those things shake at any speed due to the design of the engine, mostly the...

    I did that with a fiddle down the highway, it was not a good time. The neck caught enough wind to pull pretty hard on my shoulders. I can't imagine a guitar would be comfortable above city speeds....

    I recall the owner's manual also explicitly stating there is no idle adjustment and that the computer takes care of it all.

    $3.53USD/GAL is about $1.20CAD/L. I'm paying $1.25CAD/L ($3.67USD/GAL) and expecting another $0.04CAD/L ($0.12USD/gal) hike overnight tonight so I know what you mean. I wish I could just get rid of...

    I just put a new pair of shoes on my NC, total cost of the tires was $412CAD ($321USD). There were cheaper options available if desired. I would imagine a $75 car tire is a fairly budget model, and...

    And for the record Fez, the first tag was for a "larger than life" animal statue. My mastodon is a 1:1 scale replica, so would only qualify as life-sized, not larger than life. ;) ;)
