I wrote up a quick tutorial on how to create for yourself a free mobile app to log the service work you do on your bike(s), car, boat, generator, chainsaw, etc. Since I always have my phone with me, I find it easier to an app to log my service work than trying to lay down my illegible greasy...
Looking to get myself a decent DS bike in and around the $3K mark. I don't know much about these 2 older KTMs that are posted on Craigslist. They are both 2003 model years, but one is a 520 & the other is a 525. I dunno does that seem right?
Post your thoughts on what you think. I ain't riding...
I checked out the Deeley Motorcycle Exhibition today on a bit of a lark after driving down there to buy turn signals (I cleaned out Barnes HD Langley/PoCo). For those that haven't seen it, I encourage you to go. The current theme chronicles the rise & fall of the British motorcycle industry.
Hoping to keep this an open "Vedder" thread, much like the McNutt thread.
Will be riding Vedder with Franhoser this Sunday (July 11th). We haven't solidified a start time yet but it will likely be around 10am or so. Would like to have some company on the mountain because I get too tired to pick...
***Bike in question is a 1994 DR350SE with Acerbis tank (dual petcocks), 3x3 airbox mod, JD jet kit, Kientech muffler mod***
The other night I removed the airbox assembly (all pieces up to the carb). I cleaned everything out, cleaned/oiled the filter, let everything dry & put it all together...
I've been using Buell's Ulysses turn signals for a while & think they're the best $22 I've spent on my bike(s). The factory Suzuki signals are butt ugly, plus Suzuki wants a fortune for 'em. For a rider that has as many get-offs as I do, these Buell units are the cats meow :)
Just finished a mini review of Thor's Quadrant boots. I have copy/pasted a text only version of my review below because I'm too lazy to deal with formatting/links/images/etc.

*** I figured I'd test the poll capabilities of the new forum :D ***
Just curious as to what you carry along with you on local (i.e., back by dark) rides? I only carry a patch kit & leave a bit more pressure in my tires to avoid a pinch. What about you guys?
Right now I have a 90% chance of not working this coming long weekend Monday. Anyone up for a ride? I am up for pretty much anything: Eagle Ridge, McNutt, Stave Lake (east or west), Norrish Creek, Hemlock Valley, etc.
Post up if you wanna ride on Monday :)
First time out to McNutt today. Big ups go to Franhoser -- he was nice enough to play tour guide for me & buckethead. I have to admit that 2 minutes in I thought it was gonna be a looong day, but after the initial shock to the senses the DR & I settled down (i.e., eventual relaxation of the...
This news is spreading like wildfire & there's is much info floating around to substantiate it. Other Euro websites mention that Husqvarna/BMW have also finished developing their own DI 2-stroke bikes as well.
This is the new TC450 coming under wraps. I'd imagine the TXC + TE bikes would not differ much, other than the TE using a 6-speed tranny as per the current format.
(1) BMW EFI engine w/electric start
(2) Kayaba suspension
(3) All new frame/swingarm with concentric axle traction...
I am temporarily going to be using the factory DR350 tank while I wait for a couple new Acerbis petcocks/gaskets, etc for my big tank. Anyways, I noticed the factory petcock has 2 nipple connectors: a large brass one & a smaller steel one below it. I am guessing the larger one goes to the carby...

*Bike is a 1994 DR350SE*
I just popped in a new clutch cable on my bike. With the engine started & the bike up on a work stand, I noticed the rear wheel spins when the bike is in gear & I have the clutch lever pulled in. Is this normal/ok?
What's the deal with the 2 adjusting nuts? I have them...
Just finished a mini review of the Alpinestars Web Gore-Tex boots for those that have road/touring bikes. If you're still wearing hiking boots or not wanting to wear the rigid race type boots, I think these A* boots are the cats meow :) I have copy/pasted my review below but did not bother to...
This has spread like wildfire throughout the 'Net, so I'm sure many of you have seen it. For those that haven't, have a look at what a Stockholm bike dealer had sitting in the back of his shop:
