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

    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...

  2. How did Liter Bikes Get So Expensive?

    Did I just check out for a few years? It's like I woke up from a long happy Ninja 1000 dream and all of sudden, liter bikes cost more than $20K. I went to grope the new GSX-R1000R over the weekend, and totally fell in love with it. I've owned three Gixxers and loved all of them except for my...

    I've been toying with the idea of getting a vintage 70's small displacement street bike like an RD200, CB100 and the like. I'm not sold on either motor type but twos are much more common, so - has anyone here ridden and stored a two-stroke in an underground garage? I've seen a car burning oil...
