Re: Awful Quite

Yes very quiet we are in week five or maybe six of a covid stay home order. To cold to do anything outside. I also have a fork seal on my virago which needs attention, then there is the valve seals in my 69 Chey pick up that need to be looked at. Can't decide if it's the cold or lack of ambition ;)

Re: tire gauge

I use a digital that looks very similar to this, I will walk across the yard to get it rather than use the 2 or 3 others I have. Checking tires is a breeze

Re: BIG DUMMY!!

I used it once. I was coming into a parking lot and was just turning into a parking space. Made the big no no of touching the front brake and down she went. I flipped the kill switch as I stepped off as it was going over. No damage other than pride :cry:

Issue. Also she doesn't use near the conditioner any more. (Don't worry about the name on the post I ...

Re: BIG DUMMY!!

Friend pulled up beside me at a light. Light turned green and he pulled in to Tims and I sat there. Took a minute to figure out that some where in the conversation I had hit the kill switch. Glad it wasn't a bust intersection and I was next to the curb.

Re: Don't trust that jack

I don't even trust Jack stands. I like to slide an old tire rim under their wheels and then let the vehicle down on them. This happened to my neighbor, He survived but can't work any more.

Was given a bell, and put it on the Hwy peg. Last winter in Arizona I kept hearing this jingle, took quite a while to come to the conclusion it was the bell.

Re: How Has COVID-19 Affected Your Riding?

Things starting to return to normal here, restaurant 's open to half capacity so getting food is slowly becoming less of an issue. The issues is weather. The wind has and is blowing 30 mph for about the last ten days. But the Canadian prairies will do that. :cry:

Re: How Has COVID-19 Affected Your Riding?

We have done some riding since returning forum Az due to the virus. Our biggest issue is weather. Don't care to leave home knowing your going to get beat up by weather. We have a few little loops we can do close to home but it is a pita not to be able to stop for a coffee and lunch
