    Barkbuster Storm Handguards Black

    I thought I'd post these here before going on eBay. I used these Barkbuster Storms on my old 2009 Ninja 650R every winter, where they helped a little with the wind and cold. I have just one photo of them on the bike. I had put green tape over part of them, but that's been removed. Not used...

    I lost one of mine, probably at the gas station when filling the tires. Anyone know who has the OEM ones? Everything I see online is sliver chrome. When I search and get results that say this: "Purchasing the best honda valve stem caps is critical for you and we know." They're for...

    So I tried starting my bike on Sunday morning. Turn the key everything lights up as normal, but all I get is a Click-Clack sound followed by a buzzing noise and then the Check Engine light and Coolant Temperature Indicator both shut off. They light up while I hit the starter button, which I...

    Chain cover- no, not THAT chain

    I have to chain my bike up each night and am using a disk lock on the front and a tough u-lock through the rear wheel. I then wrap a chain through the u-lock. If I'm gone for a while I will wrap the chain through the rear wheel. My chain is hanging from an overhear water pipe, so the bad guys...

    Finally pulled the trigger on a new seat

    I took a ride through the hills in Malibu yesterday. Up and down Corral Canyon and then took Malibu Canyon over to Mulholland. Did not go up the Snake, but cut over to Kanan Dume Rd and had lunch. On the way back home my posterior demanded I pull over. I just can't seem to get more than about...

    Installed the Givi Chain Guard

    I got tired of all the mud that would splash all over the underside of my bike, so got the Givi chain guard that includes a hugger from a web site called Tour & Ride...
