Re: Going To Pretend I'm 18 Again

I keep telling myself that this is the year I learn, but I'm sure all of the kiddos at the skatepark located across the street from my home would just laugh at me.

Re: Financing Advice?

Don't get a home equity loan or a home equity line of credit, which are also known as Second Trusts. There are significant costs associated with this type of financing that go above and beyond the interest rate. On these types of loans, you have to pay "closing costs" just as if you were getting a m...

Re: Can I use this Battery ?

LiON batteries are very sensitive to temperature. I get about 10% better gas mileage out of my Hybrid (which has a huge LiON battery back in the rear deck of my SUV) during the summer than I do during the winter. Checking the built in gauges during operation, the battery seems to spend most of it's ...

Re: Netflix Binge! (your thumbs-up recomendations)

So, for those of you old enough to have read Archie comic books, "Riverdale" on Netflix has been surprisingly better than I would have expected. It's not the sappy teenage pap peddled in the comic books, but an updated, dark version where many of the characters are only like the comic book in name. ...

Re: Is it harder to kick start an Australia Retro Ural ?

You guys kick your bikes to start them? Heck, I usually just kick mine out of frustration.

Re: Newly Acquired MT-11 Won't Start

So, you said it was running, if even for 30 seconds. If that's the case, then most of the basics -- valve gaps and timing -- are probably close. Still, here's some other stuff that you can try. I might suggest removing the spark plugs, putting an eye dropper of gas in the cylinder, putting the plug ...

Re: Got hit today

Holy chrome, Batman. I'm sorry to read about the accident. I'm glad to read that it wasn't worse.

Get better soon, both you and the bike.

Re: What did you do to your Ural today?

It's not so much what I did to the Ural today as what I did for the Ural today. I inquired about a new exhaust system. It seems that, a certain somebody who shall go unnamed, while exorcising her cleaning demons, tossed out one of the catalyts from my disassembled OEM exhaust. I adore the Gaucho, 88...

Re: Naming the rig

I name all of my vehicles. Usually, I have a name in mind before I buy, but -- gosh darn it -- something pops into my mind when I first ride it, and that's the name that usually sticks. With the Troyka, I was thinking I would like some ethnic girl's name for it. However, having spent a couple of mon...
