    The 100/90-16 front limits your options quite a bit -- normally we'd recommend the Shinko 712 or 230 for folks on a budget, but Shinko does not make a tire in this size.

    The options are:...

    Is the bike using an excessive amount of oil?

    I know this is an old thread, but I bet I can make a good guess as to who you talked to... hope he's doing OK!

    I went back a minute or two later and made my post a little more colorful.... I didn't know the forum software would also update the wording in quoted passages. Neat!

    Agreed! Do NOT do this! Besides, you won't learn anything useful.

    I hereby officially disclaim all responsibility for that GPX track... no, seriously it wasn't on any of the tracks I built. No idea where Greg got that one. Most of the county roads in that area turn...

    Howdy, all!

    Since I had the shortest "commute" home, I didn't really start loading my bike until everyone was gone. Anyway, I finally rolled out about 11:00 and had an entirely uneventful ride...

    You touch on another interesting point -- the death of the long bed, and the near death of the useful pickup bed. There's a SIGNIFICANT market opportunity for a manufacturer who brings back the long...

    I respectfully submit that this truck isn't for you, a person who already drives pickups and has for a long time. (IIRC, you drive a large diesel pickup when confined to four wheels.) I think Ford is...

    Yep, here's the small pickup everyone's been screaming for!

    Small-ish, anyway... still quite bloated compared to the beloved and adored Toyota Pickup of the '80s and '90s.

    Yep, looks like the Friday/Saturday/Sunday forecasts just improved greatly to "nearly ideal", and Thursday improved to 40%. On a warm day, that will mean scattered bits of weather, so I'll take it.
