    Keep what you've got

    My take is, keep what you've got. Your bikes are fun, bulletproof, and you can work on them yourself. When the wheelie craze gets uncontrollable, rent a 1200 for a few hours.

    I hated the OEM sidestand on my R80ST. It finally crumbled recently as I was getting off the bike, causing a tip-over and putting me on the ground. I immediately ordered an aftermarket sidestand I...

    Congrats to Ned

    Congrats to a fellow Colorado rider. I love that race, as my screen name suggests, and I totally love the privateers like Ned, who give up so much just to compete in the greatest race in the world.

    Running with the Moon
