General discussion of Sportbikes
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...
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...
Bcsb Rescue Ops.
If you need to be rescued and your insurance doesn't cover the towing, or if you don't have insurance or don't want to go thru your insurance, please contact the appropriate BCSB Member listed below for your region and if available they will gladly help you.
There are way too many oil threads started in a year, and most lead down a similar path of debate and frustration.
So, ALL oil related threads/posts will be contained within this area going forward.
Feel free to discuss the exciting merits of syn for not? Fantastic winter oil options? All...
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...

This is for the sunshine state, though later on it might affect us also.

Heading for a ride on Sunday through the Cascades. I've had breakfast at the ACME Diner in the past. However, I don't want to stop so soon into the ride this time.
Any breakfast place suggestions between Sedro-Woolley and Marblemount?
Anyone else recieved a no-helmet ticket while in a border line-up? My old man took his bike down South today, waiting to cross South at Lynden the bike was getting hot so he shut it off. Takes his helmet off, and is rolling the bike whenever the traffic moves (Stop and go). He's less than 50M from...
My 899 has been running a bit hot - not warning level hot but hotter than it should be under the conditions. Found the typical weeping hole leak indicative of a water pump failure or pending failure when I went exploring.
Out of warranty so considering other options aside from Highroad Van. Live...
A family is asking for help after a motorcycle with sentimental value was stolen outside their home in Victoria https://www.cheknews.ca/have-you-seen-this-bike-family-hopes-to-find-late-sons-motorbike-471452/
Props to some adventure riding on a GSXR1000.
I can feel it, it's been about 13...
very very sweet!
I'm just home from 6135kms over 3 weeks with Scott Murray between Alabama / Georgia and Virgina / West Virginia, riding the twistiest roads we could find in the Appalachians. Not everything went to plan of course ( trip report to follow in due course); and not every road is as tight as the Dragon (...
I speak for a number of life time riders that bcsb left for alternative media, but want to change for privacy. Can BCSB moderators connect with local riders again? I'd like to help lemme know.
Being its a popular spot for the sport bikes thought I would start this thread to keep tabs on the changing conditions up there.

Road surface is in better shape than it was last spring but its still very covered in slippery silt. Got the wake up call soon as I hit the...
I was going to compile a list myself, but figured its best to tap the collective memory of members here. Post your favorite and I'll update this post. Aaaaaand Go!

I got the latest issue of Cycle Canada in the mail today. Yes, I subscribe to paper magazines, cuz I'm old and reading is a habit I can't seem to break. And on page 60 of this issue I came across David Booth's 'Chronicles' column. The subject was the effect that an article in the February 1974...
So its September..........and while I have done a handful of overnight and multiday rides, I certainly haven't ridden as much as in past years, and I'm ok with that.....but I do have to share this observation.....where are all the sporty-bikes?
Day ride loops through Princeton, Merrit, Cach...
In January 2017 Lane Splitting was legally sanctioned in California for safety reasons.
This article discusses the new tip sheet for both motorcyclists and motorists issued by California Highway Patrol on Thursday!
I want to compile a list of the top 10 provincial motorcycle routes and am looking for your feedback.
As much detail as possible would be great.
I live in Ontario and will be taking 3 weeks off work and am planning to ride to BC and back. I wanted to ask the locals what are some roads that I must ride? I have been looking at google maps but I figured local riders would know better. I prefer roads that are twisty, have elevation changes,...
Just wanna share an experience I recently had with BK parts / service department:
I sent in my rear wheel to plug and patch a screw in my tire. I had a staff member inspect my rim for damage (which was none)
Next day the tire was repaired but the rim was scratched badly.
Well, the staff...
maybe it comes down to how good you think the underlying GSXS1000 chassis...
A scenic time of year for riding. How about posting up a picture (including bike) and saying where it was taken?
Old Hedley Road, Princeton.
I'm sure that many of you have a favourite place to eat in the smaller towns you pass through on your rides. I'm not talking fast food here--I'm thinking about the local "greasy spoon", a hole-in-the-wall bakery, or some funky little cafe.
Please post some recommendations for good, cheap food....
So who here is hardcore? How late in the year do you ride? I have exactly three weeks left on the clock and it might drop below freezing here tonight. It's been pouring for days and I am totally bummed.
So whos riding 'til Christmas!?
Way back in 1992, I got my full motorcycle licence 30 days after I got my learners. I passed my full licence on my first bike: a 1984 Honda XLR 350.
I passed my full test in the morning. In the afternoon, I went to a Honda demo day at Richmond Motorsports on No. 3 Rd. (as I said, it was back in...
If you had unlimited funds, desired an open class sportsbike, and the only two available were the 2019 BMW S1000RR and the 2019 V4 Panigale, which would you choose?
I went in to renew my Auto Insurance and Ena (Paul's sister) is working harder than ever to keep Cassells Insurance open. 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...
