General discussion of Sportbikes
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...
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...
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...
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...
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.
Hey all, I've visited BC a few times, rented motorcycles here and on the island, even rode out here once and started the game of tag on this forum (is that still going on?). Anyway, just thought I'd let you know about our most recent travel plans:
Neda and I got our motorcycle licenses together...
i'm wondering if anyone is using any kind of radar detectors on their motorcycles? if so, what kind/price and effectiveness, and if you have a picture that would be great as well.
Got my arse to the Motorcycle show willing to put downpayment on the new BMW S1000RR. According to the rep from MTL there, Only a few lucky SOB will get their new 2019/2020 RR by June or late August later this year. No thanks. I want to ride ASAP. I am torn between a left over Aprilia RSV4 RR or...
Been a long time since I have posted here but was wondering what everyone's thoughts on these two units would be? Pro's, con's to both etc. I have always just used earbuds for music and never used any comms when on my bike. I am planning on doing a few group rides this summer so I was wondering...
RCMP Press release:
Police Tackling Noisy Vehicles
The onset of summer is not always good news for some Lower Mainland residents, who dread the increase in noisy motorcycles and other vehicles on their neighborhood roads.
The North Vancouver RCMP and Port Mann freeway patrol are inviting...
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....
When these things first came out they were a joke.......looks like they evolved
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...
Well it is that time of year when WSDOT have done their reconnaissance through the upper regions of the North Cascade Highway prior to the clearing effort. They have come back with some news that is encouraging in relation to last year and will begin the clearing in 2 days, March 26th.
Am considering taking Hwy 6 from Nakusp to Vernon in July. I realize that I will have to take the Needles ferry across the Lower Arrow Lake...but wondering if anyone has been on this route before and if so, how were the road conditions?
Any info would be appreciated. :)
told my boss im going on vacation this year... told him like a month. wanting to do a session type of trip over a bike only trip. Ill have my bike on the bumper, with a 'camper' on it instead of doing the hotel/motel thing. maximize the good riding not burning through tires/oil nor riding in rain...
Rumor has it it will be a naked. A Z900? A Z1000? Or even the 2020 H1. I guess we will know on October 23rd.....
Tar snakes are a nick name for the tar lines in the road used to patch cracked roads. They look black and a very slippery.
To my point: We practice safety skills like thresh hold breaking, looking into the corners, one or more fingers on the clutch/ brake levers all the time ect..... I...
I traded my 2017 Ninja 1000 for a 2019 H2SX. As with most things there is a story behind most decisions, and I figured I would share just so you have some real world perspective.
After three summers on the N1K, and some stupidly fast multi-day trips with my buddies on their 14's my body...
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?
Dunlop Q4s for smearing all over Area27
I've recently seen a couple of big shops in Victoria merge, namely Island BMW and Savage MC. This shows if anything the change in ownership from retirement, changes in building lease costs , perhaps municipal zoning changes which is bringing in high occupancy towers and other reasons .
I'm based in coldstream so leaving from Lavington. Interested in any feedback/suggestions for a trip I'm planning weekend after next.
So my plan for our next trip is almost the same as the trip we just did for the first day, hwy6 over to Nakusp and then 31a at new Denver to kaslo and onto...
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!?
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?
maybe it comes down to how good you think the underlying GSXS1000 chassis...
who's watching? not really 'my game', but these boys sure do know how to keep it pinned!

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)
