Iíve got a Z900RS that needs a buddy. Iím looking to do a photo/video shoot with old and new and Iím hoping one of you guys or gals would be interested in hanging out, getting some photos taken, and maybe even swapping rides for a few miles.


An aftermarket exhaust system is at the top of most riderís mod list, but what can you really expect from that fancy pipe, and are stock exhausts all just junk anyway?

I stopped watching foozeball a while ago but i made an exception for the SB.  anyone else watch the game?  what do you think of the strange referee calls and non-calls?

In this month's issue of Motorcycle Consumer News they talk about Motorsport Aftermarket Group which manufactures, distributes, or retails pretty much every accessory and apparel brand you know filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in November.

Outstanding debt of some $575 million dollars. Creditors include Sumitomo, Pirelli, Arai, Bridgestone, Kenda, Avon, Cobra, Cardo, Yuasa, Ogio, Continental, FMF, EBC, Yoshimura, Shorai.

MCN had a great quote "Attempting to identify motorcycle-related companies that are not impacted in any way by this bankruptcy would yield a very short list."

"Last week we reported on Collins v Virginia making its way to the Supreme Court, a Fourth Amendment case challenging a police officerís right to lift a bike cover to look at a (stolen) motorcycle in a private driveway without a warrant. "

AMA: "Motorcycles should receive no less protection from unreasonable searches than other vehicles. When the police removed the cover from Petitionersí motorcycle, a search occurred. And as Petitioner contends, because that search occurred without a warrant and in the curtilage of a home, the search violated the Fourth Amendment."

Looks like they're streaming the race on Red Bull -

 ZX-6R vs. YZF-R6 & Z900 vs. FZ-09

I'm not one, but I'm tired of the industry blaming 20-something's for the state of motorcycling.  Good read.

"The biggest problem is that the motorcycle industry looks at millennials as ďthe other,Ē a massive group whose perceived indifference to motorcycling is based largely on the notion that technology has replaced typical modes of recreation, institutions of community belonging, and methods of identity formation, once provided by things like, well, motorcycling."

Gloves / Del Rosario gloves

the mythical unicorn gloves have finally started shipping.

can someone buy these and give us a report?

from Chris at CA-Cycleworks:

One of our suppliers stole our ExactFit product line.  :-[  :P  [thumbsdown]

They didn't even change the artwork...

That "BDL" company is Belt Drives Limited in Anaheim, CA. They were our sales people who handled distributing our belts from BesTorq, the manufacturer/importer in Nebraska. BDL, however, also has belts made for them in China. Probably in the same plant ours are made -- with the same molds that were custom built for our ExactFit timing belt products. As BDL were our account handler, they asked for the PDF files of the artwork for our ExactFit belts. BDL are the people who import the drive belts for Harley Davidsons as sold by Drag Specialties.

So, yeah, BDL was "let's get your belts in Parts Unlimited! We'll license it and send you royalties." ... that was just before they stopped filling our orders. And that's what caused the drought. They didn't tell us how they were not keeping up with our supply -- so we'd be 9 weeks behind.

There is no true recourse. I'm hoping everyone yells at Parts Unlimited and they at least switch to buying from us. This is a clear example of big business screwing over the little guy. I've worked 20 years and the belts were supposed to pay off our debt and hopefully fund my retirement as we transfer Cycleworks over to the kids -- in the next 15 or 20 years.

Parts Unlimited has MSRP higher than ours, so that will help us to continue sales with our established customer base and distributor network. P-U is on Facebook, @PartsUnlimited

For 20 years, I've built my reputation and business on taking care of y'all. And many many times, I've seen the forums kick it in to gear to save us in the little things. This is a big thing, we'll need big help.


Please, if you buy your own belts, make sure you're buying them directly from CA Cycleworks or Monsterparts.  I'll try to find out what other retailers have them.

General Motorcycle Discussion / carpool restripe - 57N
« on: 08/24/16 10:06PM »
I noticed yesterday the 57N HOV lane has been restriped to the broken white, opposed to the double-double-yellow.  It's broken white from the 5/22 all the way up to the 91 free where it goes back to DDY.

It seems they've done pieces of it the last 2 days, so it might continue further north through the week.

Just a heads up.
