  1. 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...

She has worked there as long as Paul has and I would hate to see the BCSB community to stop going there. While Paul's presence will be incredibly hard to replace as we all know...

    This article dates back half a year, but I missed it 'then', so maybe you did too. It's certainly just 'anecdotal', not 'science', but the outcomes are interesting and amusing , if not earth shattering. The real take-away for me was the statement partway thru that "I realized that the thing I...

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.
