How to piss off a Ferrari owner......

Tell him that all Ferrari is, is nothing more than an overpriced Fiat. :P They really get pissed off in a hurry when you tell them that. :P

And if that actually WAS a GT500 (which I highy doubt since if Carroll would had seen this car he would had smacked the crap out of the guy. Probably bought the dash already signed), WTF would you chop up a potential $300K car to make a freaking wanna-be movie car? Seen regular 67-69 mustangs done u...

The thing you fill tires up with normally. My old tire machine had teh fill modified so I didnt need the valve stem in it. Really never had to use the air blast of teh machine. Ratchet strap sometimes works. I've used hammers on teh tread to seat the bead sometimes when even air blastting it didnt w...

put some soapy water on the bead and the rim. Then use an air compressor (a good one, not a 12v one) with a tire fill adapter and start to fill. Should hear a little hiss then POP. Keep going until you hear the second. BTW keep ypur fingers clear. It hurts getting pinched by the tire. :P

Why is it locally that most the guys with the extended swingarm "drag" bikes all fat smart mouthed asshats? :P Hell other than the 2 brothers that have old school gsxr drag bikes, pretty much every one of the new "drag bikes" have some 250+lb guy on them and sometimes has a 200lb girl on the back.

Are you just doing track days or are you gonna jump right in to the shark pool and race? If its track days, Just tape up the lights, pull teh mirrors, get a 1 or 2pc leather suit (2pc MUST zip all the way around), back protector (Bohns are great) and sign up. For racing, NEVER USE YOUR STREET BIKE. ...

Just no VA. With their new ticket system, its best to avoid Virginia all together. But closer to WI the better. But if you guys are thinking about coinciding this with a track day, Schedules usually come out around Dec. Road America doesnt allow camping for spectators except during big races like AM...

My fav is when you find something you are looking for and they dont want to deal with anyone who lives more than 10 miles away. Found a lens for my camera I've been looking for in Chicago and the guy refuses to deal with anyone who doesnt live in teh chicago area. I'm less than 2 hrs from chicagos n...

Unfortuneatley you may be stuck with the $200 or so.

Trackside Engineering is a biggie at CCS blackhawk farm events and probably one of the best out there. https://www.tracksideengineering.com/ec ... log_ms2.2/

Jim the new distros are more user friendly. Suse 10.0 and up pretty much sets up like a windows machine. Dont even have to compile kernals or write scripts for most setup. Some things still wont work with linux (ie wireless prism chipsets. never could get the one for my laptop to work).

Hyosung GT250R actually is a pretty sharp bike.

Gidday, What about the Aprillia 250 stroker - if I remeber correctly they had a Suzi RGV motor V2 two stroke motor. They are not in the current Aprillia model range, but there is always a chance of finding a new - old stock model. Technically Aprilia RS250's are not street legal in teh US (although...

BEcause the market doesnt really want them anymore. The US doesnt have cc restrictions for new riders, heard Japan relaxed their cc restrictions. Most kids dont want to ride a 250 because "Its not as cool as a 600 or 1000". Most think they can handle a 600 or 1000, but have absolutely no idea what t...
