I think you can tell by the taste. The higher the octane, the more "buttery" it tastes.
Just suck a little harder on that siphon hose and you'll be able to tell.

Absolutely true. And the best way to do it is to lean to the outside. Try it, you will be surprised at the results.

Maybe I'm demonstrating some kind of ignorance here but the FXDR looks kinda like the same sort of bike as the FTR1200. And if I was in the market for that kind of bike, at 2/3 the price and 1.5...

That bolt broke twice on my bike
The first time the dealer fixed it but it broke again. I replaced it the second time with a grade 8 bolt. That was several thousand miles ago. Last time I was under...

This is real typical. People come in here, ask for free advice then you never hear another word. Didja fix it? Take it to the dealer? What about the trouble codes? C'mon, pay it back or forward or...

"Accident" is the wrong word here. Accidents are unavoidable things like being hit by a meteor or a wild animal jumping in front of you. Wrecks or crashes are caused by negligence. Most people who...

I don't think a single person who has actually done it has said lane splitting is a bad idea. The only criticism comes from those who don't know what they are talking about.

I'm visiting in California right now. Crossed the Bay Bridge yesterday afternoon. Lane split most of the way. No problems, no close calls, not even any tight squeezes. Woulda taken way longer ...

The dealers probably routinely update the firmware if it's recommended by the company. If it doesn't advise you of this in the work order you sign, it should. Anyone who is concerned about their bike...

People bring up these kinds of discussions because they want to share practical information.

That said, my main concern is if they make my ass look fat.

The only thing that is surprising about this is that HD hasn't yet offered to sell an upgraded Screamin' Eagle speedometer that doesn't fog up.

I think interstates are a lot different for you east coast guys. In the west, outside of the urban areas there ain't that much traffic usually. I've been on I15 in Montana when you could take a nap...

Langlitz Leathers. Made in Portland Oregon, USA. Very high quality.

If you don't want to pay full price for new stuff, they carry a good selection of refurbished items at lower prices.

I don't think those things ever get caught anywhere but if one did while you were rolling down the road, no way you would have time to release it before a catastrophe happened. I guess you could...

The Torx design allows for a higher torque to be exerted than a similarly sized conventional hex socket head without damaging the...

I don't think anyone can figure out what you mean by "cruising at 1100 rpm". There really isn't any situation where you should be operating at that engine speed so who knows if what you are...

I dunno about the "massive benefits" part but it's another advertising channel that businesses have to exploit to compete.

That gauge is probably not accurate enough to tell. Check it with a good digital voltmeter. It should be 14.0 to 14.5 volts or so with the engine running at 2000 rpm. At 14.7 or more your charging...
