  1. Mechanical and Technical
    Had my first accident on Monday approaching a stoplight in SF. Slowing down after a rev w/ the clutch engaged and slowly pressing on the front brake, traveling down from 10mph -> 5mph. All of a sudden the rear wheel spins hard like the clutch is fully engaged; I go into a low side and the bike...

    Okay so I was changing my oil, couldn't get the filter off so I ran a screw driver through it. Little did I know the oil cooler was less that a 1/4" from the oil filter on the other side. Luckily I stopped before I ran the damned thing all the way through. Yes I feel stupid no I don't think...

    Just heard the news. It seems that nearly every time I check my instagram, Facebook, or youtube another rider has gotten into an accident or died. I guess thats the risk we all take but this one has really got me sad. RIP:bawling

    So I was traveling down a wide one way street, when the car in front of me puts their brakes on. The car braked to the left side of the street, left of that construction barricade in the pictures, and since I saw no turn signal, I went around the construction barricade on the right. (see 1A) The...

    Oivey...:headbang: My wife decided to store paint in a wall storage unit above my bike. I live in a townhouse complex so my house is attached to the next. My neighbour decided to get a punching bag and the vibrations of him using it caused a small paint can to tip over and spill over my bike...
