  1. 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. 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...

  5. 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...

  16. 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?
