  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...

  4. Sticky Thread Sticky: dangers of riding categorised

    The dangers of riding(categorized) from the safety nazi of the day(me): in my small amount of time riding I've come up with a couple observations regarding the dangers. I've compiled them into an unscientific, statistically oriented list from most frequently happening on BCSB to least(some...

  5. Sticky Thread Sticky: Posting a ride -----> Make sure the DATE IN THE SUBJECT.

    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...

  1. The BMW 310 GS

    This definitely has the looks to make it attractive to first time riders or others. I feel it is a better option than a lay down riding style sport bike clone. Not bad, BMW! https://www.press.bmwgroup.com/global/article/detail/T0265624EN/the-new-bmw-g-310-gs

  3. Opening of the Cascades - 2016

    Unlike last year, the clearing of Highway 20 through is not a quick affair. The weather in the mountains, like on the Coast and the rest of BC has been fairly typical. Lots of precipitation. The process began a full month ago on March 17th. They have made great progress stating it would take at...

  4. Saying Hello

    Hello people, I've been lurking for a while so thought I'd join in. Triumph Thruxton R was my ride this past season and gotta say it's fantastic. Handles very well for heavish bike, and brakes very aggressively. Kinda pretty as well! Cheers.

  6. What Happened / Changes to BCSB

    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. ...

  16. Free money!

    Well, not really. I have managed to have a shade under $30K fall into my account after the demise of a very distant relative earlier this year. Now the question is, what to do with it? Certainly it isn't "take this job and shove it" money. But if your RRSP's are topped off, housing has been...

  19. Broken Conrod?

    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. Has 44k km and oil changed every 5k with Mobile1 MX4T. Towed to dealer and they think it's a broken conrod by looking through the spark plug hole....
