  1. Secure bike parking in Vancouver close to Sutton Hotel?

    Sutton charges the same for a car as a bike and it's a public parking area so they can't say it's secure (only one camera near the entrance). *I'm not paying $40/day for crappy parking. Any other ideas...? Thanks in advance.*

  2. Someone dented my bike. Should I claim or not?

    Ive with beacon for full coverage. Deductible is $500.*Parked my my bike on street overnight. I'm guessing someone backed into it. Not enough to knock it over but enough to dent the fairing and crack the akropovic carbon fibre exhaust. Did not leave a note of course.*Claim or nah?**

    What is this new carbon fibre helmet from Kaos, I saw it today at modern motorcycling. It literally feels weightless, i was twirling it around with a finger. Its only 300$ at that.
