Off Topic / shipping a full set of fairings
« on: 07/05/16 10:03PM »
so I got an offer on my FZR600 fairing auction on fleabay, but it's in tampa ...I listed local pickup, but it's the best deal on the table right now

I've never done a full set...just individual pieces

what's the best way? buy/bubble wrap each piece individually and send in multiple boxes?

how much would I charge?

or one big, huge fluffing box?

I figure usps/fedex/etc. have size box limits

I am now a shirt n tie employee

Looking for pants I can wear with a shirt and still look professional

I wear armored shorts and armored MX knee/shin guards as well, so they need to have room underneath

Tried heavy duty khakis and after a dozen rides they pick up oil make holes etc from road debris

Any suggestions besides dickies?

Hit me up!!

Or if you, or someone you know just wants to go Friday - I'll buy Saturday & Sunday  :29:

Work upping security, so no bags/jackets/gloves/helmet at work

Helmet w' the strap...but how do you lock a jacket/gloves & boots?

Right now the jacket has a plastic book/loop for waist strap...using same small combination U-lock for helmet

Was going to loop cable lock through arm, but a bit of a not much different that what I'm doing...and I don't want to get saddle bags cuz I refuse to be that "cyclegear uncle on the sport touring bike" just yet  :32:

I get off work at 5:15...

meet @ the holy jim dirt entrance @ 5:30pm

ride 5:30-7

Meet there 9:30am...ride all day




pm me for number

Can the condition of a rear tire affect headshake??

'94 FZR600 - got used...whenever I went over a thick painted line, pavement imperfection while changing lanes, bump, etc. the front would quickly shake back n forth similar...sort of felt like a shimmy.

the fork seals showed wear, so I just thought it needed new seals, but then I swapped the worn/flat/corded tire w' a good rear tire on the bike and the headshake is gone  :26:

I thought the front tire or suspension would affect that??

I don't fit in anywhere

Daylight savings = light until 7:00pm!

no more 8am dirt rides!!

Going to try 5:30pm-7:00pm this Sat to see if it's enough light to go after work

if it stays light out long enough, I can go every other Saturday and Sunday at 5:30pm  :31:

any takers?

Got an inset allen-head bolt in my upper triples that I rounded out w' the allen key...

so I tried an $8 ryobi screw extractor kit, and destroyed the bit (the screw was stronger than the bit)

so I tried the $15 "remove any screw" kit, destroyed 1 bit, and the next one grabs, but my drill isn't strong enough to turn the bolt

what's next?

time to buckle down and buy an electric impact driver?

Off Topic / gas going up?
« on: 02/24/16 11:19PM »
by Friday?

Quote from: CBS
LOS ANGELES ( — Gas prices in California are predicted to climb due to a switch to the summer blend, according to consumer advocates.

The Santa Monica-based Consumer Watchdog issued an alert Wednesday, explaining that the Los Angeles wholesale market jumped 52 cents per gallon based on that switch.

“The move marks an end to fire-sale prices on remaining winter stocks,” the group said in a statement.

They warned that drivers should fill up Thursday since prices are expected to go up by Friday and will keep climbing.

Wondering if someone has front/rear stands near Cypress I can pickup amd borrow until Saturday night? :42:
