    Don't ride in the Shoulder!

    I recorded this back in April, but finally had time to edit it and upload it to the toobs. This rider is the perfect example of why riders can be their own worst enemies. Not sure why he decided to flop over to the shoulder, rip on the gas and cut back into traffic.... I see this sort of...

    Gen 1 FZ1 Rear Brake Adjustment / Bleed

    I have been riding with this adjustment for about a month now. Everything is working good, brake feel is excellent. I will look into a rebuild of the unit in the future.

    Rear Brake Caliper, Where Can I find a replacement?

    I had had good success getting used parts on ebay from guys who pull parts at salvage yards.

    Anyone want this Gen 1 rear rack

    Any recent tire upgrade opinions? / brands / models to stay away from?

    Gen 1 FZ1 Rear Brake Adjustment / Bleed

    Over the last year I noticed my rear brake was becoming "soft". what I mean by that is I had to push the brake pedal all the way down for full engagement. I thought maybe I needed to flush the fluid out, so I did that. I am pretty sure I bled all the air our of the bleed nipples, but the end...
