  2. Sticky Thread Sticky: British Columbia BCSB Stolen Bike registry

    I thought I'd start a sticky for people to list their stolen bikes. This can be an easy reference point if you see something fishy on the market. To help with detailing the theft, report the date and location of theft, make, model, VIN, colour, location etc. Anything that could assist with...

    It's that time of year again, so just a head's up, no specific "date" in the subject line of a ride thread, gets deleted. "Saturday" does not count, that's DAY, not a DATE. There are many Saturdays in a year, but only one April 1st. Reason this is being posted in the General Sportbike...

    As a point of interest, what happened to BCSB? There are almost no new posts or threads and most of the regulars have gone quiet. I returned from 3 weeks of riding and thought well BCSB will provide me with at least a week or so of "quiet time"reading and there were almost no new posts. ...

  8. NBD (New Bike Day) - Upgrading the N1K to ZX14r

    Ok, so now I'm on bike #15........sounds weird even when I type it. Owned the Ninja 1000 for 5 summers and 46,000kms and it was one of the best bikes I have owned. Granted, I sunk $6000 in to it in power and suspension upgrades and it would probably dyno at around 145hp. As more and more of my...

  9. Squambux revisited.

    Having not been to the LMDs pale imitation of The Rock Store this year, I thought that today would be a good time to go. It it was wonderful to see that there has been no changes to the street squirrel mentality. Body positioning, lane use, speeds and a general "damn the torpedoes" attitude...

    Hoping this forum is still active. My 2008 Honda CBR125r suddenly died on the highway. Wouldn't restart, just a single "thunk" when I hit the starter.

  15. Anyone else out riding?

    I headed out for a tour of the valley this morning. I ran into three large groups (15 bikes +) of mixed bikes. All of them wavers, not a cruiser face to be seen. Cold, damp pavement made for a leisurely pace. On an RC51, maybe not so pleasant. But living the adventure bike life lets a rider...
