    That is the cicada's hibernating skin. That cicada has already shed the skin. It can't fly in that shell, in that shell it is slow and easy to catch between forefinger and thumb.

    Shortly after...

    In 4 short months we went from being a net petroleum exporter back to being an importer. And prices up $1/gallon. :mad:

    H-D keeps a firm hand controlling their dealers. The Mom&Pop H-D dealers of yore didn't fail in the marketplace, Milwaukee decided they would rather have chrome and glass clothing stores.

    Yes. That was my point. Moving magnets over the cores is creating and collapsing fields. Windings around the coils can not help but energize, de-energize, as magnet moves from core to core, which...

    Most gas stations near me are out of fuel. Prices have not changed but what does it matter if the pumps are off?

    I rode through a swarm of something a couple days ago in AL/TN. Pelting helmet and felt through my gloves and relatively thick Cortech jacket sleeves. Over in an instant. No big bug splats on...

    You misunderstood. Is the insulation in the stator that has to be stout enough.


    Been there. Didn't see any convincing evidence anyone understood what they were talking about.

    There is a lot...

    I remember being lost in "back EMF" and other things studying electric motor theory and practice in engineering school. Majoring in mechanical engineering I just remembered the basics. Years later I...

    Stator and regulator/rectifier will get hotter if you could turn off the headlights.

    The stator+rotor alternator design runs at 100% output for given RPM all the time. The R/R is a shunt which...

    Why do you think you need to replace an oil pump?...

    Why do you think you need to replace an oil pump? I honestly doubt a Hayes manual is adequate.

    Early F800 has a defective design left side engine cover gasket. An oil passage is formed with the...

    I have never seen a motorcycle tire cup. I have never not seen a street motorcycle tire that did not scallop.

    Run your palm over the tread, you will feel it if you can not see it.

    Cupping is an...

    My 2007 F800S has had nothing but E10 its entire life. When one can find E0 here it is 50% more expensive than E10.

    EPA doesn't directly force 10% ethanol, found they didn't have legal authority....

    L1 (120VAC) and L2 (240VAC) “chargers” are nothing more than smart extension cords. GFI, overcurrent protection, plus a signal to the vehicle indicating how much current is permitted. Charging smarts...

    No “professional” will repair a motorcycle tire. They have successfully promoted a narrative of F.U.D. that somehow a failed repair is more dangerous than the original puncture. They like this...

    K&N users are gullible. Can’t fault a capitalist for exploiting.

    Consider this: you can’t afford to pay dealer mechanic rates to wash a K&N. New paper filter is less expensive. Even DIY. Cost of...

    Not only do most riders not understand countersteering, most motorcycle journalists don’t understand it either but have learned to not dare question the orthodoxy.

    Good point! Left turns will be longer than right. We don’t have to lean farther to the left to ride longer distances on the left wearing the left faster.

    Good guess but same either way when fork has rebound on one side, compression in other as when both have compression and rebound.

    Everyone I ride with has same issue, BMW, FJR, Honda.

    By golly you have convinced me! Government must spare no expense in installing 100kW+ EV charging stations at every intersection because EVs will be totally useless if I can not drive every road, any...

    There will be a major correction before then. Or civilization will collapse.

    This is legislation by wishful thinking. If wishful thinking worked then Russia, China, Cuba, and Venezuela would be...

    Germans do whatever the heck they want. Somebody decided they liked the way that particular model tire in GT rode.

    “GT” is a marketing hook not a tire performance specification. A Michelin PR4GT...

    Road is not crowned anything as severe as the wear I get on the left.

    That is not how things work in industry. Engineering does not get to design a new product until Marketing funds it. Marketing said they wanted the Road 5 to be the best rain tire in its class.

    Meh. EVs do not require “gas stations” the way the willful ignorant pretend. Too easy to start every morning with a full tank. The only need is what Tesla is doing with Superchargers, every 100 miles...
