Maybe, maybe not. This is the LA BS thread. Nothing implied about MC's in any way.

fucking bummed ...new pipe on the KLX and I have been trying to dial it in..since my place of business is in a industrial area of santa ana I figured hell I'll just take the bike in and tune her after hours when the streets are cleared out.

Went and did one test run and it was not exactly to my liking. So I move the needle down one notch. As I turn around to grab my helmet the fucking bike falls off the stand and snaps the clutch lever off game over ... maybe tomorrow

Clutch levers are over rated.

wish I never sold this one.. I always really like the CB700SC nighthawk




or my '68 Kawi




or my TT500 flat tracker




Or my Husky



Or my speedway bike




And the bike that brought me to ADVRIDER ... the XL500 (this is way before I thoroughly destroyed it)





Back when I owned NICE old bikes...and all expect for one shared the stable at the same time.....before real bills a wife etc etc etc

sorry I just found my old photobucket account I forgot about..no more random bike pics. I Promise

How riders around Mammoth roll.

Last week we found this guy who'd been stuck for 4 hours on the side of this hill.
Didn't have map or GPS either.
His hydraulic clutch didn't work because the bike had been on its side for too long, he rode it out standing up.
Ride what you got.
