    Giving Credit When It's Not Due

    I was just on the Triumph website looking to order a nice birthday present for myself. I had the two items that I wanted in the virtual shopping basket: a nice chrome cam cover to add more bling to my creamsicle and a fairly decent set of gloves on clearance for only $20. Pretty good score. Then...

    Thinking of Going Green

    I comes the ass chewings!! Seriously though, the creamsicle is a keeper and isn't going anywhere. But I am giving serious thought about picking up a 2014 Kawasaki Versys. I have a job in Kansas City now and looking at a pretty long commute until we buy a house this summer. So I am...

    Don't Use the Wife's Good Pot to Boil a Chain

    The title of this thread says it all... Don't do it as there is no good answer regardless of your rationale... There will not be a video of cleaning, maintaining and conditioning your chain as production was abruptly ended... :loser::kick::attn:

    Back in the Saddle

    Against the Law to Feed Someone

    For years I have been donated to the "Feed the Children" organization. I guess everyone has a soapbox they like to climb upon and my is a child going hungry. Perhaps due to personal experiences in my younger days or whatever else but I know what it was like to go hungry and a child going hungry...

    Let's go royals!!!!!!

    29 years in the making and this young team is playing with a hunger!!!! What a welcoming present I am getting right now! Missouri is pretty awesome on how they treat veterans and discount prices at Kaufman makes going to a game for about the same price as going to a minor-league game. I am...

    Ethanol Concerns

    Alright fellas..... 21 years since living in the states and my first Bonnie concern is the ethanol fuel. I did find two stations that have pure gas but they are 10 minutes up the road. I imagine that I can use them 90% of the time but frankly there will be times when I do not have a choice...

    Time for a Tang Rant

    :mad2::kick: It SHOULD be set in stone that a Meriden logo Triumph should never be put on a Hinckley Trumpet. I equate doing this as same as someone gluing a fake kick starter to a side panel on a Hinckley. Bad...very very very very very bad. For shame. :chair::hurt: Rant over

    Oirase Gorge & Lake Towada

    The rides are wrapping up quickly for me here in Japan. This was done a couple weeks back to get some nice pictures of the bike with the boys in front of the lake. Towada is the third biggest lake in Japan and the area is gorgeous. Beautiful scenery and crooked roads to ride all day long. I hope...

    Sea of Japan

    I was able to sneak in a ride yesterday which was a bonus! I haven't been able to get too many of these in this season. A pretty bitter sweet ride considering everything and that this could possibly be my last ride in Japan. If mother nature doesn't play nice, then I won't be riding next season...

    Epic Journy & Back by Dinner!

    It has been a while since I have done one of my well known write-ups. A lot has happened since my last tales of a weekend journey on two wheels in a foreign country. The writing AND the riding have both kind of been put to the curb due to recent events. A lot of reflection has happened...a lot...

    Japanese Biker Cops (Or a New CB Thread)

    The local town had a police exhibition at the aero museum( Misawa Air Base is also the name of the city because of the first trans-pacific flight from Seattle, WA to Misawa, Japan).
