  2. 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...

    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...

    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...

  8. 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...

  9. Bike of my dreams

    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...

The thin leather on the sides of the fingers is always gonna be the weak spot on a sport glove, and I suppose there...

  17. do you like reading about riding and bikes?

    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...

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...
