Re: 2006 Ural Patrol Ebay find

According to The Missus who is a native speaker of Russian, the printed slogan doesn't really make much sense but more or less translates as "Blow me up, beyotch".

For that much money, I'll pay off my mortgage first.

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

Finished Breaking Bad recently. The first couple if seasons were humorous, especially that very first episode. But then it seriously degrades from there into megalomania and the inevitable ending. I've been waffling on whether to start Better Call Saul. Life is pretty dark right now. I'm not sure th...

Re: Did you ride today?

Yes, took the Sporty to work. Now that the weather is starting to break, I need to get on with the repairs so that I can get Riba back on the road.

Re: Tank Rust

I had to clean out the tank on my 2004 when I bought it. I went to Costco and bought 4 gallons of white vinegar. With the tank removed and the the outlet on the tank capped, i added the vinegar, filling it a tad more than half the capacity of the tank. I stored the tank garage on top of a 5 gal buck...

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. ...

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.
