Misc / Re: Ride To Work Day - 6/18/18

Thatíll be a normal commute for me. If frogs are falling from the sky Iíll wimp out and drive.

What do you guys like for an in ear Bluetooth set? I use a cheap $9 Bluetooth single earbud to listen to news to and from work, but a nice stereo set that is low profile enough to fit comfortably under a helmet and still sound good would be nice. Tried a few but wonder what works well.

Saw the exhibitís final installation go in. Cool bikes and dramatic staging. A few are suspended by cables from the ceiling. Worth checking out. Also if you havenít been there for a few years, the place underwent a huge renovation in 2015 and is totally different.

I'm really not sure how long the exhibit will be on display, and they don't have the run dates listed on the website, so chances are they aren't really sure just yet. But, I'd guess not more than a month or two. They just did a Harley vs. Indian display that only ran for a few months.

If you go, check out the Porsche exhibit. One of the items on display is a prototype Porsche motorcycle that wasn't put into production, and looks very weird...

Hi all,

Just a heads-up, the Petersen Museum in L.A. is debuting a new motorcycle exhibit this Friday:

I'm a weekend tour guide at the museum, and have been seeing these bikes roll into our garage to be prepped for display. Very artsy bikes, worth taking a look. Plus, the Petersen has free, bike-friendly parking - just go around the parking barrier, and the motorcycle parking area is on the first floor in the northwest corner.

Iím not Irish but I was detained by customs in Dublin a few weeks ago. And that should count. My wife has us on a health plan. She made us vegan sauerkraut sausages. I washed it down with some Bushmills so that made it kind of better.

Thanks, guys, I appreciate the feedback. Might be worth the ride up!

Hi Guys, I picked up a flyer at Cyclegear recently for Streetmasters workshops. They have a cornering workshop at Willow Springs for $390. Iím always interested in sharpening the skills. Anyone have any experience with these workshops?

9 creates automotive t-shirts based on user-submitted artwork, and only offers each design for one day. They do a motorcycle shirt rarely.

If you ride a KLR, this is your shirt! Go check out the website today!

Because it's cold! My temp hit 31.9 in Santiago Canyon on the way to work this morning. I forgot that the readout starts flashing around 34 as an ice warning. I saw a guy coming the other way, hunched over, I think he had one hand on his engine to keep warm.

Two stage is base coat and clear coat. This is how cars have been painted from factories since the late 80s in most cases. A one stage would be an acrylic enamel or similar. Most cheap places like Maaco repaint in single stage for their low cost paint jobs that are advertised for $299 or so. Doesnít give as glossy a finish in most cases.

Glad to see the site back too. So much has happened! I rode to work, rode home from work.. so many adventures.

General Motorcycle Discussion / Cool billboard in L.A.
« on: 11/20/17 09:37AM »
Saw this billboard on Saturday on Western Ave. in Koreatown. A little Photoshop work with the promo poster for the last Mission Impossible movie, and you've got one heck of an ad for your food delivery app!

Meh, feels better than the worn out bias tires, and the BMW will do most of the slab duty.
