    LED Fluorescent Tube Swap

    After 10 years the fluorescent tubes in my garage are starting to die and so I'm looking to start replacing them with the new LED ones. Have 16 bulbs in total so will only be swapping them as they go. When it comes to anything electrical I'm clueless and now looking at lightbulbs has become...

    Easter Tire

    Noticed rear tire lost a bit of air overnight, checked for nails and such but found nothing. Was just about to check that the valve core was screwed in correctly and then I notice this :oops: Going to have to email Fortnine to see what can be done about it. Really sick of the tire issues I've...

    Torque Wrench Calibration

    Has anyone here calibrated their own torque wrenches? One of mine definitely needs to be recalibrated and I'd like to get my smaller inch pound one done as well since its usually used on delicate engine bolts so don't want that to be out. Seen some websites/videos that show how it can be done...

    Dual sport pricing - What am I missing???

    Noticed some weird pricing on used dual sports recently that really makes me wonder. Are these ads just dummy ads to show to their spouses that they are trying "really hard" to sell their bikes, or do these people not really get the concept of basic math and taxes? Few examples: 2020 Kawasaki...

    Ignition Switch

    Anyone know if there is anywhere in town to pick up a cheap keyed ignition switch? Out for a ride yesterday evening and noticed the one on my MB5 is acting a bit flakey. Had to fiddle with it to get the lights to work and they they would go off while riding due to the bumps/vibrations. Had to...

    Trade Ya!

    Anyone here ever trade vehicles? Am I correct in saying if it’s a trade no taxes need to be paid (as long as no money exchanges hands)? I remember chatting with ProZac about it a few years ago when I was trying to sell my Suzuki and he sent me a photo of the form but I can’t seem to find the...

    Road Work

    Noticed that there was quite the traffic backup out in Holyrood last week and has me wondering if there is any website where this type of work and/or detours are shown for the public? I got caught up in one last year in Holyrood as well (couple of hours), I wasn't aware there was a detour in the...

    Point Latine Lighthouse - Argentia

    While this Coronavirus stuff has me stuck indoors I decided to catalog all the books I have downstairs in boxes. I inherited a sizeable collection of Newfoundland related books from my Grandfather a few years back and found one on lighthouses of Newfoundland (Lighthouse People by Jim Wellman)...

    Social Distancing Activities - Vectors

    Cooped up in the house with the Covid-19 pandemic on the go and too much snow to get started on cleaning up the yard outside so decided to try learning some new drawing software. Picked up Affinity Designer to learn vector drawings and loving it so far. Very easy to use so decided to try and...

    Where Are All The Electrics?

    I was recently watching a YouTube review of an electric motorcycle and it got me wondering why are the majority of electric motorcycles all being produced by small independant start-up type companies. With the exception of Harley Davidson, all the other large motorcycle manufacturers haven't...

    Coronavirus

    Anyone thinking their summer travel plans may be impacted or at least modified due to Coronavirus? I don't follow the news so I'm not really up on how widespread it is in Canada/U.S. but I know its certainly having an impact on the motorsport world. First few races of the MotoGP season have...

    Online Custom Decals

    Anyone here ever use an online decal shop to make custom vinyl outdoor quality decals (preferably Canadian)? Meaning one where you can upload a vector file and they take that, create a decal with transfer paper then mail it to you. Would need to do small orders too, 2-4 small decals. I know...

    More Flames

    I seem to be having a lot of bad luck with fire/heat lately :(. Latest fiasco is some scorched paint on my seat I just painted back in the fall. Needed to cut some metal a few weeks back and the jigsaw blades I had were too dull to do anything so I hauled out the angle grinder to get it done...

    Honda CT125

    My first bike was a Honda CT90 and I've been on the hunt for a nice used one for years with no luck. So I was pretty excited to hear that Honda maybe releasing a modern version of it. Only concept at this point but if they release it and it comes to Canada I'll be getting one. Would still rather...

    Coincidence?

    As we all know the NL government upped the camping fees back in 2017. Came across an interesting graphic today that looks to show the effect of these increased fees, or am I reading too much into it? Have a look at the drop in recycling totals in 2017 and 18 :rolleyes: Think they are related...

    Sorry

    I'm looking out the window right now and its snowing, almost May and its snowing like a day in February. I can't help but think I jinxed the weather by buying a new bike this year and if this is the case I apologize :oops:. I've done more staring at it in the garage since buying it than actually...

    KLR Killed???

    Been hearing rumours (unsubstantiated) this week of the demise of the beloved Kawasaki KLR650. From what I've read it looks like this could be the last year for the model. No definite info is really available so really just speculation at this point. I've never owned or even ridden one but it...

    Reflective Lane Markers

    Was down around the Southern Shore last week and noticed crews installing reflective markers between the yellow lines in the middle of the road. I've seen these in other parts of the world but this is the first time seeing them here on the island, figured our winters and the plows will have...
