Re: Sumthin' I've been noticin' lately

Rob, if I listen to no other blatherer, you know I listen to you. We've blathered in PMs, to great effect. :cheers:

Re: Sumthin' I've been noticin' lately

I have seen a mindset from some where they simply want the answer and are not interested in the why's or how's. My personal opinion is it is always better to learn the why's and how's so you are better armed for the next problem. But some folks are just not wired that way and again, I understand th...

Re: Hello from Nova Scotia

Welcome, C FJR.

I moto-camped and -toured through Nouvelle-Écosse in 2012. I'd love to go back and see more of Atlantic Canada.

Re: Tire Balancing

I recently had a tube replaced and the dimwitted kid who did the job told me the balancing dot on the tire makes no difference . That dot certainly made a difference as it concerns the Metzler Karoo 3s that I recently installed on my Suzuki...but what do I know. https://i.ibb.co/pRS2yBy/2.jpg https...

Re: Sumthin' I've been noticin' lately

Is it me, of does there seem to be more newbies signing up to ask questions and then disappear without as much as a thank you than folks that join to chew the fat about Russian bikes and stuff? ...lately, I see newbies landing here, asking their questions, getting an answer and then disappearing wi...

That's one of the least unnerving jobs to attend to. You'll be fine.

Re: Funny or WTF photo thread

I saw a sign the other day, my kind of humor. It had a nice green lawn and landscaping. Sorry No Photo, but it said: DEAD DOGS DON'T POOP That's a real problem in this development, also. More than once have the neighbors wondered how many deceased dogs would be necessary before their rude owners wo...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

So despirited. Mobile Chernobyl I'm tempted to sell it cheap and start over; let someone else have the satisfaction of resuscitating the bike. The yorange bike doesn't owe you anything. Re-spirit yourself by selling it and bringing a 2020/21 rig into the fold. The '15 will serve as an excellent tem...

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

I thought of St. Chad-in-the-Fields when I recently snagged a free snowthrower that was placed curbside at a neighbor's house. Yet another thing to tinker with. It would have been snow machine #4 for me, had I not recently (and healthily) purged some of my surplus inventory. There's just one drivewa...

Re: Bad Gateway Lately?

Is it just me or is anyone else experiencing forum pages frequently failing to load due to a "bad gateway" error lately? This phenomenon only started happening on my Android 'phone using the Firefox mobile browser about a week ago. The same "bad gateway" message has appeared a few times for me. It ...
