  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. First post, looking for info

    Hi, I'm looking for advice on finding an upper cowl/headlight shroud for a 98/99 Honda CBR900. New from Honda is $700 but I was curious if anyone knew a good aftermarket source. I won't get the ones from China as I've heard they can be a nightmare for fitment and are cheap crap. Any info would...

  6. Fraser Valley/Langley Dirt bike areas

    Looking for dirt biking areas and trail riding spots and ones that are lower in elevation to avoid the snow. Pretty well the only ones I've been to are enroute to Squamish or out at Tamihi. I suppose I could log back onto DSBC and look around, I thought I'd ask here first. Since we will be on...

  8. 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. ...

The centre passes pretty much directly over John Day, but of course all accommodation in that town is already fully booked up. I've...

I started down the Ducati route, to the point of calling a few people and making a few trips. I had an...
