OCMoto Special:

I'm going to give it straight, no chaser for you lovely people:

I've had this motorcycle for about two years now and have ridden it once a month for about 10 minutes to keep the battery and fluids fresh.  I have five other bikes.  I purchased this bike from the previous owner because he was moving and I had planned to resale it for profit. I no longer care about profit and am selling it for what I purchased it for and put into it to break even.

It's fully serviced, rideable, and rough around the edges.  It burns a slight amount of oil near redline, but does not impact performance.  This may be from the lighter base oil viscosity I'm using.  A majority of "leaderbike" riders do not utilize high RPM and will never notice.

With my restructured life, I haven't registered the bike in my name (I have the clean signed off title from the previous owner and will include all of my information within a bill of sale to accompany the motorcycle.  I'm asking as much as I can get from Craigslist but want to deal with real people instead.

Buy it and ride it, break it down for parts, use the engine in a kit car, put full insurance on it and park it in Chula Vista, whatever you desire to do with it I no longer have the energy to invest.

My Mad Max bastard child runs warm with the YZ250 front fender blocking the SV650 radiator so I'm going to just run twin baby rads and/or wings on my current setup.

Does anyone have spare radiators / blown-engine dirtbike they don't care about / spare wings to grab some air in a box in the garage?

Maybe we... can ... work ... something .... out  :12:  :12:  :19:

Wear your Helmet. But that's just like my opinion, man.

Just received my Renewal Notice and I feel like the price doubled.

$93 ($82 "Registration Fee" + $1 "License Fee" + $10 "County District Fees)

... For a 2004 Suzuki SV650 that I've already owned for two years.  Huh?

Is this normal?

A very odd trend I've observed since I started riding. Repeatedly. Can anyone explain the logic behind the decision to not punish drivers besides, "well, the rider's dead so it doesn't matter anymore" thought process?  What can we do to change this current trend?

Sponsor of helmet law repeal dies in motorcycle crash, was wearing helmet

I welcome open conversation and reject superiority-complexed egos.Unless it's witty enough.

I personally believe we are adults. We don't need to be told what to do. We know the consequences. I won't tell you what to do, and you don't tell me what to do. Laissez-faire.

You know all those comments from strangers, friends, and family saying how motorcycles are dangerous in general? Apply that eye-roll to being legally-required to wear a helmet. We all have different levels of risk-aversion & choose our own personal levels.

When I wear a helmet, I personally wear a full face unit. When I don't wear a helmet, I adjust my riding and enjoy the wind through my hair and the extended panoramic view. Are we going to slam riders who wear a half helmet next? It's still a helmet after all! Where does that "safety line" start and stop?

I choose to not wear knee pads for basic commuting. I may scratch my knees. I may wear cold winter gloves to keep my hands from losing feeling instead of my race gauntlets. I choose to throw my leg over my motorcycle risking my life in some statistically plausible way.  Should we have laws banning motorcycles in general because of their risk?  Should we have laws demanding only the most superior SNELL-approved gloves next?

What are your thoughts?

Tragic Irony.  Up in Washington State on this mature rider's last day off.  Approaching stopped traffic and didn't stop in time.

I genuinely enjoyed the new Mad Max film.  I grew up with the originals and have always had some sort of fascination with dust-stained leather I guess... :13:  :12:

ANYWAY, come check out spikes, flame throwers, and the weird!!

Info from 2010 trip

Hey folks!

I don't have a recent transaction with MXSuperstore but they ALWAYS attach a "free shipping under $80" coupon, I just don't have the most recent coupon (ironically I will once I purchase something). My pops picked up a nail in the Mad Max SV's dual-sport rear and the tire's half-way gone, so might as well pop a new one on there.

Does anyone have the most recent code?  (A google search didn't pull up anything either, I'm not just being lazy here)


Fallen Riders / RIP Navy Serviceman on Red Ducati
« on: 05/29/15 08:24PM »
You were probably responsible for it.  There's always another side to the story, right you guys? I'd have to be there to judge whether he was responsible or not.  He probably deserved to get his a$$ kicked because he was splitting lanes too quickly.  People suck.  She should have just called the cops.  It was unwise for him to have stopped his bike in an incident of road rage.  All these comments seem unjustified when the end result is something fatal.

RIP Rider.

The motorcyclists attacked an unsuspecting and innocent driver with his family in the car on a desolate farm road.  When will these thugs stop terrorizing and endangering the children!

Sarcasm aside, what would you do if you were the rider or if you were the rider's friend?  Having someone intentionally merge into your lane to run you and your bike off the road is clearly a near-death experience.  The driver provoked the two riders in an act of road rage and the two riders retorted.  What's everyone's thoughts on this video?  Could an incident like this have happened with the whole Lien can-of-worms incident?  Is the driver innocent just because the driver's family was with him?

Shift Sector is also open for highly-modified, high-speed motorcycles.  We were the problem-free experimental run.  Our team be attending the next event as well.  This is not an event to see how fast your 600cc goes, this is for GPS-confirmed 170mph+ drag and superbike-only competition. 

You will be competing against fully-built race vehicles, the winner this year ran 231mph in a half-mile.  Again, this wasn't the car's top speed, this was the car's speed from a dead stop to 372kph at the 0.8 kilometers (GPS-confirmed) mark.

Info can be found here: and here:

The Bad:
- No Speedo, hence the super low mileage, I would assume ~25,000 miles. 200-mile range on a tank. Still throws the low-fuel light which yields 28 miles of fuel before you run dry ("ask me how I know").
- Throws a 'check engine light' after removing the unnecessary rat's nest of emissions hoses and canisters, I've been happily cruising on her with a light on without problem.
