  1. Umbrella Insurance $200K ---> $5 million

    I'd like to get one policy of excess insurance to cover 5 vehicles. Insure only with ICBC for 200K liability only on each vehicle as required and then have private coverage under one policy. it would also help if I could throw in a boat for $0 - $5 million. Anyone from this brain trust already...

  5. Downsizing bike?

    So my wife is giving up riding, so I thought it'd be a opportunity to trade in both our bikes and get a new bike. Life has been busy for me last few years, so I only get to take it out on weekends now. Was thinking of maybe downsizing to a 300cc-500c bike.. I know I only have a SV650, but it's...

  6. Switching from Beacon to Coast Capital for 3rd party insurance

    Ever since I got my SV several years ago, I was using Beacon for 3rd party insurance. I liked that they pay out agreed value for the bike, and that they would insure my track only bike for theft. These are the 2 things that as far as I know no other 3rd party insurance would do. Last few years...

  9. Bike covers - good? Bad?

    I bought a new bike today and the sales guy told me I'm better off leaving my bike to the elements rather than using a cover every day (during summer that is). Apparently putting a cover on and off that often wears on the paint, and if the bikes still warm it will cause condensation leading to...

  12. Buying bike from Alberta without being there (escrow & shipping)

    Getting back into bikes and looking at one in Alberta right now. I won't be able to check it out in person before buying which I'm fine with as it's essentially brand new and I will have a skype call to go over a couple things. I've contacted a shipper and am all good on that front, only...

  13. Dianese X-ile Glove finger wear

    I've had these gloves for 4 years, so I suppose I should not complain, but fact is they didn't get worn that much... I have another pair I wear for most of my commuting and touring. The thin leather on the sides of the fingers is always gonna be the weak spot on a sport glove, and I suppose there...

  15. Migrating from a larger bike to a smaller one

    Hello, I used to own a 2001 Kawasaki ZX-6R but now, that I'm older, I own a 2012 Honda CBR 125R. I wanted to get a scooter instead but found this bike and plan on staying in the lower end of the CC's. Anybody else felt the same?

  16. Air Bags for Bikes

    In the event of a collision you turn in to the Michelin Man. Maybe not the dumbest idea, but investors aren't going for it. (35 million views and a measly $310 raised so far) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_aWe50oHJTE _aWe50oHJTE ...

This is driving me crazy and Im not sure where this is coming from but riding my 899 this "winter", Im finding that the roads on the North Shore and in Vancouver are significantly more slippery than I expect them to be.
