I even explained how I did it to the Russians, and how the handle only cost $8 with 2 keys. They were impressed and took notes, but it never has made it into production. I was a newby at Uralfest '03 and was witness to that conversation. I also remembering you explaining the harzard of relying on t...

The Beemer has two positions for setting trail, one solo and one sidecar.

You'll also need a pretty good inseam and there's no sidestand, but you wouldn't be the first.

I like the three 2x4 method. After rolling the back tire up on two of them(staggered lengths). Put third under the inside leg of the center stand. Clears the mudflap, more comfortable height for me and it won't sink into the asphalt. You can take it a step further and cut the the two "ramp" 2x4's to...

little afternoon ride

I don't normally post about a fairly ordinary ride but I took a couple of photos today and they show a couple of modifications that I've done over the last couple of months... I noticed during a ride last week a bit of a path in the trees adjacent to an old railroad trestle a few miles west of home....

I was doing the tourist thing in Washinton DC with my now ex-wife. We were walking near the reflecting pool when we saw a white squirrel. She thought it was cute and approached for a closer look. Well, he was evidently very tame and used to people feeding him. When he started running towards her for...

That's interesting, Dana. I can see why the dipstick thermometer wouldn't rise if there was no oil. But normal head temps with no oil? That's some fodder for the discussion of a deep sump for engine cooling.

Left foot on ground, kick with right. Unless I stall at a traffic light then its kick with left while on the bike ala seen in Garden State(literary reference). Or if I'm pointed downhill at the time, I'd bump start it in 2nd. Ditto on Dana's comment on a weak battery with plenty of juice for ignitio...

Not trying to jack this thread but as a new owner of a Dnepr I need to ask. What do you mean by "operates the clutch all by itself"??? Dnepr-Glide. It's an auto clutch feature. When you depress the shifter a pin comes out of the rear of the trans and pushes on the clutch arm. There should be an adj...
