    Went for a ride today...never ending hi-jack thread

    Irish Loop is probably my favourite of the Avalon Peninsula loops, I like how quiet and traffic free it is.

    Weather!!

    Thanks. It only seems like yesterday we were dropping him off for his first day of kindergarten, time flies.

    Weather!!

    My son is graduating HS and has some activities today so doubtful I'll get any riding in today or at all this weekend. Looks to be shaping up for nice weather today with little wind and good temps. Hope some of you can get out and enjoy it.

    Paint Protection Film (PPF)

    I was given some PPF from a member here when I got my Africa Twin to put help protect my tank from the tank bag. Not sure if its 3M or not but its great stuff, fairly thick. Its held up amazingly over the past couple of years. Probably doesn't move around as much as side bags but it has seen its...

    Of all the things you should not do.

    So if someone now asks what kind of bikes you have, do you say Rucki or Ruckus's? :p Congrats, always knew you'd end up with another and can see why, it is a very capable, reliable machine. Same colour as your old one? Or is it the silver version?

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Yeah, I did some Googling last night and came across Seal All, looks promising. There is also a solder option as well. Regardless of which I go with I'm thinking I'll definitely need to reinforce the tube after the repair with JB Weld, just to give it some added strength. Going to first strip...

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Well, won't be riding this bike anytime soon. Was all ready today for this to be the day I'd see if the CB350 would start up. First put the tank on the bench and put a bit of fuel in it to make sure the crossover tube hose and petcock were not leaking. Neither were but it seems there is a crack...

    Gloves

    Maybe its not totally the dealers fault there are no gloves in their stores, I can't even get a pair online. Most ones I've been looking at are not in stock, going to leave it for now and check later in the summer before Fall hits.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Gave the MB5 a once over this afternoon and checked the fluids before starting it up. Wanted to take it for a spin around the neighbourhood but then it started to pour so left it for another day and went back at the CB350 to finish syncing the throttle cables and put on some new carb overflow tubes.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    I don't have a brake either, I've been meaning to make one for a while now but never seem to get around to it and with this bike nearing completion (I hope so anyway :rolleyes:) I'm not sure I'll have much use for it. To bend that muffler bracket I just clamped it to my workbench, clamped some...

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Managed to get the exhaust setup and mounted on the CB. Had to make a support bracket for the mufflers so used a scrap sheet of aluminum that I'm sure a fellow member will recognize :). I've used it for a few projects now, has really come in handy. Now that its mounted I can move on to...

    Great to hear, sounds like you made a good choice. Nothing like the first ride too, always a bit of nervous excitement.

    A bad crash - Topsail Road

    Intersections are bad enough to begin with but for some reason they continue to build them with same design flaws every time. I haven't driven much in other places so not sure how they are implemented elsewhere but here in St. John's/Mount Pearl they continue to put in absolute death trap left...

    Throwback Thursday.

    Came across this big fella a couple of years back just past Cataracts PP, looked like a car must have just clipped his head.

    Gloves

    Thanks Tony, they look nice but I'm looking for more of a three season (aka in NL as 11 months of the year) gauntlet style, or at least semi long, glove with protection. I already have a short, light pair that I use on that one warm day but mainly use a warmer glove as I'm usually cold on the...

    Gloves

    I had to step out for an appointment this morning so on the way back I stopped in two dealers to see if they had any gloves as I'm really in desperate need, mine are looking pretty threadbare. What a brutal selection, a total of one glove that was anywhere suitable and it wasn't in my size...
