    There's some sort of sealant material gluing the joint together? That seems unusual but maybe there was a leak and a previous owner had the bright idea of bonding it all together. It could even be...

    3" higher sounds like an awful lot for 10mm of extra shock length. Surely there's something else going on there? Perhaps different links and dogbone?

  3. Gear suggestions for commuting to the office?

    Hi guys,

    I'm looking for pant suggestions for a commute to the office. I used to commute in the rain with textiles and change clothes but I've switched offices and lost access to a locker room. ...

    I had to park outside for a year with no overhead cover when daily riding every season (including winter). I put my cheap, thin, non-lined $20 eBay cover on the bike the minute I got home (ie. wet...

    FYI fellas, my gloves always come apart at the stitching instead of wearing through the leather. Maybe it's because I have slim fingers and the contact between fingers is minimized or perhaps it's...

    I wear medium everything and given the low price, I just took a chance and they fit a little tight but stretched out. I figured that if they didn't fit I could always re-sell them on craigs and not...

    I stopped buying expensive gloves (Alpinestars & Dainese) because of the number of pairs I've gone through. Now I buy inexpensive ones off eBay. I most recently took a chance on these ones and...

    I'll be honest about my riding abilities and say they are simply average at best. I definitely lack confidence when fully leaned over from a big crash years ago so I'm hoping the placebo factor of...

    Do you guys consider an SV650 to be a smaller bike? That's what I'd get for a track toy.

    To be honest, I wanted the Ohlins products for the bling factor. People recognize the brand and I know I can always get service and re-sell it later on down the road. I've read great things about...

    Right on! I appreciate the spring table. I couldn't find an Ohlins one online. Racetech has theirs of course but I've been told that it produces rates that can be a little too high.

    Interesting...

    I've been thinking about picking up a smaller bike, but strictly for track days. Keep the big bike for the street and have the smaller bike for Pitt Meadows and Mission.

    Anybody upgraded their forks?

    I have a set of Ohlins NIX 30 cartridges coming and I'm going to pair them with a set of Ohlins springs.

    How did you go about selecting your spring rate and what kind of difference did you feel...

    You should check out Rubber Side Down in Richmond. While I've never tried his textiles, I'm very happy with the custom leather jacket he made me 4 years ago. You can get tailor made stuff for the...

    When did you make the offer? I intentionally buy bikes off Burnaby Kawi in December because they give the best deals in town.

    Kawasaki/Rea's domination is well deserved because Kawi is spending all their $$ in WSBK instead of MotoGP. That being said, even though I'm a Kawi fan, my enthusiasm is waning after the same stuff...

    Can we do that with our traction control equipped production bikes as well? I've always wanted to see how judicious I can be with mid corner throttle but I'm too chicken to try whacking the throttle...
