    EOI Airoh Helmets

    Had a MrJump for a while now.. probably 20 rides or so. It's taken the usual amount of abuse on the trail, and I wash the liner every ride. It still looks and feels new. I still notice how light it is, and how well ventilated. Thing is awesome..

    Spark plugs?

    Probably more to do with fuel than plug..

    rekluse clutch fors and against

    Setup changes are time consuming, not spur of the moment. The clutch action is compromised badly in a rekluse setup. 2 strokes in particular cannot be ridden as aggressively with a rekluse. DRZs need a rekluse like they need a sidecar, very useful thing if you can't put your feet down, a sidecar. If you're stalling and need a rekluse, learn not to stall. Get stuck on a hill with a rekluse and see how you go. In the areas and conditions that they work, they offer a marginal benefit to injured or inexperienced riders. In some other environments they're plain dangerous. End of the day, ride what you want. Do what makes you happy. PX model vespas are manual, clutch on lh bar, which twists for gear selection (didn't that catch on?!). I was thinking more the GT, Fly, GTS etc models. Autos so people don't spill their lattes.

    Pros...... Cons. You will never, ever gain full control of your bike until you learn your clutch control. Might as well take a Vespa out for a ride. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk

    Rocky uphill and down

    Stand up. Going uphill, the biggest thing is standing position that allows you to move on the bike, but keeps you in a solid stable stance. Low triangle. When you start wheelspinning, dip the clutch - don't close the throttle. Feed the clutch back in to regain traction, but keep engine revs high. Going downhill. Good stance again. Look further ahead - do you need to brake? I often see people slowing down too much at the bottom of straight steep hills, before they look up and accelerate away. Forget engine braking, get on the rear brake to keep the back wheel behind you, but don't worry about using it to slow you down - that's for the front to do. Trust the front. If you're losing traction or locking up, get off the brake for half a second. That should do it. If not, go see Birchy. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk

    What Pisses Me Orf....!!

    Trying to recruit staff. Shouldn't be difficult.. we had a job to fill and asked people WHO WANTED THE JOB to contact us. Ragtag collection of unqualified, over entitled, socially retarded nutters applied. 1 or 2 suitable, talented types but they lived too far away.. Solved the problem now, but I'm never going to get that time back again and that pisses me off. Coulda been riding. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk

    Rear Tyre - Tight as

    Tyre's still on the bead. If you start whaling away with 2 foot levers you'll screw the tyre. Get it off the bead then it's easy. If it's not easy - it's still on the bead and it will NOT come off without damage. Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
