    Are you a Fatty?

    Well, no surprise that it's winter here in Canada or at least where my igloo is located. The bikes have been parked since the end of October as snow seems to come a little earlier every year. Our winters seem to last 6 months, so what to do to kill the time away? Get a fat bike of course...

    First ever touring trip

    First time ever, I just completed a 4000km, 8 day tour, and glad I bought the K13S to do it on. Before I get into the trip itself, I just want to comment on how well the bike performed on the trip. The bike barely used any oil, rode smooth through heat and rain, hard cases worked well and I...

    Grip Buddies

    After 5 years of using the Grip Puppies, they finally decided to tear apart after all that usage. Instead of getting new Grip Puppies, I decided to try the Grip Buddies, or in some circles, the Beemer Buddies, Super Shark Skins which are constructed of neoprene. They arrived in the mail...

    Garage Mat

    This arrived in the mail tonight..., what do you think? I was getting tired of washers falling off and bouncing along the floor. It's so hard to see stuff on this floor.

    Ottimoto Revisited

    Over two years ago I installed the Ottimoto rear sets and pointed out a couple of deficiencies that I said I would look at as a winter project. I put if off for two years and it would have been longer if I hadn’t lost the freakin’ rubber stopper this past summer, P/N: 4GL-27114-00-00, and...

    Ride for Dad 2013

    I skipped last year because I thought it was going to rain, I'm a fair weather rider, but this year it looked good until ... it "rained" :eek: We were off the bikes at the time in a small town called Mundare. Oh well, the bike needed a good cleaning anyway. YouTube - Ride For Dad...

    The Sound of Summer

    The sun’s out, temperature has been above freezing this past week and a bit, causing quite the snow melt down. I took the snow thrower out and ran it to drain the carb dry and gave it a good wash down in preparation for a well deserved sleep. This temperamental biatch served me well this past...

    Edmonton 2013 Motorcycle Show

    Up here in the great white north, it’s that time of year again. It’s currently -15°C outside, roads are snow and ice covered spattered with salt and gravel, sun rising after 8AM and setting at 4PM, and I’ve been off the bike since late October last year. Call this my defibrillator, this...

    Sentimental Journey

    We were fortunate to have this beautifully restored B-17 named Sentimental Journey from the AZCAF pop in for a 4 day stop in our city recently. The two days that I stopped in to take pictures, when it was on the tarmac for people to take the tour and then on departure day, both crappy days with...

    Motorcycle Show 2012

    Yup, went again, and what really burns is the parking is $12, show is $13. It cost almost as much to park as it does to get in. WTF! Anyway, a little disappointed in the manufacturer turnout. The big players were there, but the little guys were a no show. I didn’t see a lot of custom stuff...

    H4 Headlight Bulb vs 9003

    I ran in to a dilemma tonight and I thought this was a little bit of useless information I'd pass on for anyone who can't sleep tonight. Earlier this evening, one of the headlights on our Vibe (cage) went out again. It seems a bulb goes out in it in under a year. So I go into my toolbox of...
