General discussion of Sportbikes
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...
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.

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...
I wanted to get everyone’s opinion on front wheel chocks. I would like to buy one and was wondering what everyone would recommend? I have seen a couple and the the one I am interested in is the Baxley Sport Wheel Chock but it’s like $350. I was wondering what you all are using for this if at all. I...
Rest in peace,
Four-time champion Carlin Dunne has died following a crash just meters from the finish line at the Pike's Peak international Hill Climb
A dream campaign for Ducati's new V4 streetfighter prototype came to a tragic end as pole-sitter Carlin Dunne ran off the road to his...
Euro 5 214bhp, its not a V4 :(
Interesting looking small displacement machine. Anyone know much about it? Think there's even a remote chance it'll hit North America?
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...
Anyone here seen the boys in blue weaving in and out of traffic the last couple of weeks?
i was down in Kelowna on wed for some warranty work on our car and saw a pair cruising around.
these are beautiful!
but back to real life, as for local dealerships, who are Moto Meccanica?
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.....
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.
Recent shop closures in Seattle, 5 shops all at once, affecting primarily Ducati owners, but also BMW, and Indian. Soundrider spells it out here:
I'm based in coldstream so leaving from Lavington. Interested in any feedback/suggestions for a trip I'm planning weekend after next.

Hello! This is my first post here. Thought I'd ask thoughts or experiences riding the Beartooth.
My plans are to ride out to Creston August 19. Bozeman MT day 2 and Red lodge day 3. Day 3 will be short allowing me to be fresh for day 4. I'll head over the pass, visit Yellowstone and move on to...
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. :)
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...
maybe it comes down to how good you think the underlying GSXS1000 chassis...
Have done 6 track days so far this year, so am now thinking of doing this road trip starting on Sunday morning (June 2nd). Will be 2 nights and 3 pretty full days of riding, back by Tuesday late afternoon. Links below for maps.
Am considering staying in Chewelah on Sunday night and...
As the title says I just moved here from the east coast. I have not previously spent any time in BC so don't really know anything. Looking for suggestions for a half day or a 1-2 hour ride from vancouver. Somewhere scenic with stops along the way (restaurants, coffee etc...) would be...
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...
So, as you know guys, BSB is the best Sportbike racing on Earth due to silly tracks and no electronics involved. The problem is, it is only on Eurosport channel which is not available in North America.
So first thing,
Download Bluestacks for Windows 10, it is an Android emulator.
So from e-mails and messages from friends I received both of these today on packs of riders, each with negativity.
Planning a little jaunt with my lady over there. Are there any paved roads other than the highway? I'm thinking:
Roberts Creek Pier
FZ09 and CBR250 so only short jaunts on unpaved surfaces (like 1-2km max)
When these things first came out they were a joke.......looks like they evolved
