Re: Wheelie clinic in SF on Sunday 2/11

Let's see if I can pop a couple up. If nothing else I can impress the hell outta ya with my new swivel-the-bike-on-its-kickstand trick. (Hey--it's pretty cool when a 110 lb. chick can maneuver a 400 lb. bike like that.) [cheeky]

110!? In a suit of armor, wearing a weight belt, after a meal of rocks, and while benching 70 lbs. And then only maybe. [cheeky]

Damn...picking up a trailer and (hopefully) going shotgunning that day. Have fun, and remember to circle the cars of anyone who bitches at you because your pipes are too loud...

I think I'm surrendering to my clutch and taking it into the shop, as it has begun to act up again. :(

Re: Wheelie clinic in SF on Sunday 2/11

At first I was planning to roll the bike to Desmoto and plead for them to extract it. Then I remembered that I have a power drill and extractor bits. It took about 30 seconds to get the stripped piece back out. I'll try to remember to take some photos -- I think it was similar to yours.

I'll pick up the replacement part on Friday/Saturday and I should be good to go.

I witnessed Belle's swivel-bike trick - it's impressive [thumbsup] she made it look easy.

Tigre's not going to be happy to hear that there's more competition for the ladies' attention... [cheeky]

Re: Wheelie clinic in SF on Sunday 2/11

There's no competition for attention when the tigerbike is involved. It is a finely-tuned attention-getting machine. Remember when those kids walked by your bike on Sunday to start poking at the tail? Chicks behave just like little kids. They're helpless to resist.*

Re: Wheelie clinic in SF on Sunday 2/11

me have a feeling that the ladies for me might be slightly different than the ladies for our Tigre ;) but you know there are those who bat for both teams...that could be interesting >:D

one constraint.....my little 620 can only pull so much...so my cupcake can't be too big...also it just wouldn't look right if my cupcake is bigger than me anyway [laugh] Tigre can have the bigger ladies so we don't go for the same pool [laugh]
