Was riding and the shifter on my rear set assembly fell off.. I installed it about 2 months ago luckily I was just moving from a stop sign.

Make sure you use locktite just as directed!!! My fault for being lazy

Older model Goldwing riding two-up hit a parked car in the right lane. The car's driver apparently ran out of gas.

I just realized this was this was the accident that happened in May. Apparently yesterday it was a single bike that simply lost control and hit a median in Lions Bay... I suspect that speed was a factor but nobody has confirmed that as of yet.

Jas ... great share man - the rider did a phenomenal job of keeping his composure and literally couldn't have handed the situation any better!

Hopefully nobody will watch this and think, "see... I don't need to wear gear!" That this guy wasn't run over by a vehicle or didn't lose limbs and skin is astonishing...

If that Escape wasn't paying much attention or couldn't move over that guy would probably be dead.

Should've added the tagline:

“Faster, Faster, until the thrill of speed overcomes the fear of death.” Behind the scenes at Photohoot#3. Professional rider in closed course. Seemingly public roads were added in post.

Need help! I have googled for awhile and order two different sets of fairing bolt kits but all do not fit... I am missing some grommet or getting the wrong bolt. Both of my kits ask me to install a M5x16mm. The head is too small and it is too long...
*2009 cbr600rr*

I just want tank side cover bolt! it is missing on both sides.

thanks
