In the last number of days, I rode from home to just below San Juan Capistrano and back, 800rt
Then forced my wife to quit being stoopid and take a ride with me. We went from here to Los Algadones MX to get her to a dentist. 360 rt.

In about 6 weeks I plan on riding to Denver, seeing my Daughter and meeting my grand daughter. Then my Daughter wants to ride to Yellowstone.
That'll make for a grand trip!

I'm liking this bike, but like most, it feels like it needs a 6th gear.


What year is the Bolt?

2015. It would greatly benefit from 6th but I pulled 72 on it no problem with more to go. Has a quick release windshield too, was gonna sell it but figure it will come in handy for highway riding. Tried doing figure 8s with it but not used to the weight yet.

Was wondering how long it would take people to notice the Rampage in the back lol. 1982, 4 speed. Bought it from a friend in NJ and it wont pass inspection here since it has no emissions garbage. Been running it without a sticker in the window for 4 months now lol. Fun truck though, handles like a go-kart even wen doing 60 around a sharp corner.

Well as a general rule all bikes would pretty well benefit from a 6th highway gear. Especially when something is over 500ccs. Seems silly not to pack it in on a 950.

In the last two months, I have had no choice but to come to this conclusion:
Motorcycles sure make girls mad.

Depends on the girl, some really like them.



Honestly, motorcycles are more than likely part of the reason that i'm not married anymore. Racing probably factors into it too.

Late to the party, I've had a few over the years but these are my current bikes.

2014 Honda Grom (sort of a mini bike).

2009 Triumph Speed Triple.

dang it all, hit a deep pothole going about 70 Wednesday and it almost bounced me off the bike, I kept going about 70 and noticed it was a little difficult to steer, I noticed the front tire looked low on air, I got to a gas station to air it up, it wouldn't hold air, I was close to home so I rode home, then I saw the damage, cracked the wheel all the way through, that Michelin Commander II ran flat at 70mph for 9-10 miles, that is the only tire I will ever buy for my motorcycles, I was able to find a new wheel locally for less than I could find on ebay!

it was a blessing in disguise, I don't know that I would've inspected the front wheel bearings any time soon and one was BAD

I ended up unloading the 2 front fairings I bought, I didn't like the look, still shopping...

new T bars and quarter fairing I can live with, I can hear my speakers at 80mph now since they're behind the fairing

darned if after replacing the front brake lines, my caliper bleeding screws are seeping some fluid, I can not seem to get them tight enough

Teflon tape wont do it, they say PTFE can hold up to and I tried some but it still seeps, I believe the "seat" inside the caliper for the screw has been damaged from over-tightening and I bet I need new calipers
