    Carbs certainly are not Luddite. They go dribble squirt, and the bike goes zoom. And when they don't work right you take them apart and fix them. Like the front fender, off road may get in the...

    Why ESA

    Don't know how ESA works, or what it's good for, but, could a rider inadvertently bump a switch on the controls and throw the bike out of control when in a corner? Maybe the question of advancing...

    If there are compounds and such that are so spiffy, so much more slippery, moly, boron, etc., why don't manufacturers use them in our oils? So that we buy more oil, and change it more often?
