#humblebrag, but I feel like I kinda get to. I rode my bicycle to work nearly every day for almost a year regardless of conditions. It was fun, difficult, sometimes scary, but kept me sane because I hate driving in the city and contributing to the problem of traffic. Not to mention the sense of accomplishment. My…
My first bike, a Ninja 400R. Sold to my co-worker and made way for my next Kawasaki, a ZX-6R.
Found on Facebook Marketplace. “Car”. Goddamn. Sure, many people are selling their ride on FB but at least put a little bit of effort into it. The description reads
Gearing up to do a track day which would’ve happened at the end of last year’s season had my ZX-6R not been stolen. My Shoei GT-Air is a great street helmet that has a drop-down sun visor so that means it only meets DOT specs and not ECE, making it track-ineligible. I went shopping and tried on a few Icon and HJC lids…
Because that’s all I took. Because the show has become so stale I don’t think I need to go back for another 5 years.
at having the most boring colours ever imaginable.
She sits there, quietly. Ten cylinders emitting no noise. Soon enough dust to write “wash me”. I say “Hello, R8" every time I pass by, but never get a response.
It’s super awesome. I use it for gaming and hacking the government.
Fed up with dumb opinion pieces on the Jalopnik FP inspiring dumpster fires in the comments section? Well suffer no more! It seems Kinja changed something and I’m now able to hide the comments module. Two fire trucks from very different locations for your time.
I’m no photographer nor do I claim to be, but I really like how this one turned out. I took it with my LG V30 phone and brought it into paint.net for minor contrast and brightness adjustments.
It was about 2°C last night. That’s just under 36 Fahrenheit for y’all. The fingers and toes got pretty chilly but there’s no snow and salt on the ground yet... So I’ll keep on riding.
Guys hucking it off the most ridiculous terrain you’ll ever see a bicycle on, what’s not to love? The stream begins at noon Eastern time tomorrow:
Found a 1:18 scale Triumph Daytona that’s an exact match for my bike. So friggin cute I can’t even. For my Ninja I had a matching keychain:
Found on the Walmart website. What’s sad is some poor schmuck will buy this thinking it’s the shit, whereas in reality it is using components from two decades ago. Pleeease take your $300 (HOW CAN THIS PILE OF CRAP COST THAT MUCH??) elsewhere and get a much better bike for not too much more.
I just put together this video from a trip I took down to the Tail of the Dragon at the start of the riding season with Peter Black and some other friends. It was my first time down there so I am sloooow but a couple local guys totally decimated all of us during a run.
News coming in that John Dunsworth, known for playing Jim Lahey on Trailer Park Boys, has passed away. RIP. The shithawks weep tonight.
Yesterday I was going eastbound in my bike lane approaching a ‘T’ intersection where my direction of travel has no stop (the top line of the T). There were some eastbound cars up ahead signalling for a right turn (onto the vertical line of the T) so I begin to coast in order to leave enough room. As I approach the…
(Repost for weekend crowd) Since I no longer have a bike of my own I’ve been doing more writing than riding. And because Lanesplitter is as much of a ghost town as HD showrooms this year I’m sharing the content with Oppo!
Just picked her up and have added about 100 km with another hundred to go until home. 07 with just 5k km on the clock. It feels good to have a fast bike again.
