No Ambulance Mule on This Ride!

He discovered a social enterprise co...

This issue has been building up for a while now and doesn't seem to be improving. I did a search but nothing seemed to match what I have. What I have bothering me is a sore left forearm, right up there near the elbow. It's the tendons that operate my middle fingers. Clutching makes it worse...

Note: If this isn't the right forum location please bump it to the right place. I will never learn that drinking and craigslist is a poor idea. I recently made an offer on a 1981 Honda GL1100 Goldwing who originally turned me down on my low ball, a couple of days later he calls me back and...
Hey guys just got a triumph sprint 995i that I traded for my Harley. Got a couple questions though. I'm looking to get a new exhaust for it since it has stock that is not loud.

My bike is a 98 cr125 with kayaba shocks, v force reeds, a pro circuit pipe and a few other things. Would it be a fair enough tr...
