    Re: 24 Hour Random Discussion Thread

    Quick question, I replaced my thermostat earlier this year and I have the engine code popping up for it again. I've read about it possibly being the fan relay, is there a certain fan relay or multiple (looking online I'm seeing AC relays and other such things) Also I have a 02 sensor code that appeared after I had disconnected the sensors (just unplugged them did not remove from exhaust) think I need a new sensor or just some contact cleaner on the connector?

    how much of the courts time and tax money do you think is tied up with people fighting BS tickets like what i got. ide bet more than the price of the tickets. they need to re focus the police onto real issues, not dirty plates or a burnt out signal.

    i registered the ticket with the court to fight it. im going to have to take a day off work which sucks...and is going to be a big PITA

    ya there are a COUPLE good cops left, but not many....i know a few, and there are days where they are assigned to just do speed traps. go figure why they have a horrible response time, they wont pull the guy off doing tickets to go deal with the domestic, theft of anything like that.

    Re: 24 Hour Random Discussion Thread

    i think it was summer 2012 there was a internal Toronto PD document/memo leaked out about the minimum monthly ticket requirements and how some were not meeting them.
    it made it to the paper....and the TPD denied it of course...

    Re: 24 Hour Random Discussion Thread

    ^I don't mean to offend you sir, but in all honesty the first impression I form of a person I spot on the road on a sports bike is not that he's real man, but it's that he's a man that doesn't have anything significant going in his life to lose. Now that might be true or not but that's the impression I form of such a person unless I know him a bit better, I think to myself that's a man that can't get attention to any other attribute of himself other than that so he's bike riding. I guess the idea I'm trying to get across is, men addicted to bike riding tend to attract women whom wouldn't be so appalled at their loss to begin with because they didn't really get attracted to them, just to the idea of being with a man like that in general but that's it.

    Is that idea too far out or am I not the only one who thinks like that?

    Would be interested in what you seriously think about that idea or how you would counter or disprove my opinion / theory.

    Well from my point of view I find the majority of Harley guys (not all of them) to be more obsessed with riding annoying bikes, covering themselves with leather and being as annoying and obnoxious as possible (i.e waking up every baby in the Neighborhood as one drives his flatulence machine through thinking he DA MAN). Harley riders tend to be more obsessed with wearing leather, covering their bikes with it and making flatulence sounds out of their bikes all while trying to make themselves believe they are riding with Hell's Angles or something like that than going crazy fast and doing wheelies or going through highway traffic at 220mph (i.e. watch every other Yamaha R1 video on youtube)

    Think about it, how many old geezers do you see on sports bike? An old Harely rider wants to be covered in leather making old man sounds with his bike, showing off all the silly chrome he has on his machine, that's the only befitting thing for an old man to do on a 2 wheeled vehicle from my POV at least.

    Sports bike riders on the other hand, think about it, Hayabusa blah100, Yahama R1 showoff kid, Honda CBR1000 dead teenagers, BMW S1000 excuse not to live....etc not to say that riding Harely is safe and a sports bike isn't, just saying Sports bike culture is much more biased towards getting the rider to pull off out of this world stunts and maneuvers vs Harely culture which is much more biased at turning the bike rider into one annyoing motherhugger.

    All in all I find bike riders of all sorts to be very fine timbit holes, no offense but I rarely see rider acting courteously and especially when he has a female greyhound clutched behind him.

    I'm trying to be respectful to you and every other bike rider, but I'm sure there is no hiding it, if I were president, people would only be able to ride bikes on race tracks.

    im kind of really shocked by your comments.
    motorcycles are not only a sport, but a lifestyle. much like you may enjoy sailing (which i do as well) many others enjoy hopping on a iron horese weather it be a crotch rocket or a harley and just spend the day hitting the open road.
    i myself have respect for all styles of bikes (except ebikes and scooters..they are just causing traffic problems and hope their not being used in the same statistical counts as real bikes, however they do have a valid P.O.U its just not the same)
    how many geezers do i see on sport bikes, well... that depends on what age you consider someone a geezer.. but the oldest guy i knew (rip) took a road drip on his sport bike last summer as he did every year for 3 weeks. he had to cut the trip short due to health reasons and died from a heart attach a few months later.
    next oldest guy i know is about 50, and hes on a sport bike setting lap records on the track and riding around as he wishes on the street.

    the harley guys i know actually ride the fastest, hardest and brake the most laws with their lack of signals and other lighting, missing insurance papers or illegal modifications.

    the sport bike guys i commonly ride with all wear gear, have insurance, have legal mods and working lighting and signals, ride the limit or slightly above and hit the odd safe corner with a little extra just for fun. we look for slow twisties, technical roads to play on and enjoy.


    i urge you to go get out on a bike at least once and find out what its really about. dont stereotype the world because you saw a crotch rocket do double te speedlimit oce and it made the paper, or because youve watched SOA doesnt mean you know the inner working of the MC.

    i just cant believe the anger in your posts about motorcycles. get out there and live a little. ive got a boring desk job too but i make the most out of the time i have away from it.
    FYI i useto have a Harley, i now have a CBR600rr and im getting a dirt bike or/and a quad soon. also looking at buying another harley.
    i love bikes, you really get pride of ownership with them, no matter the condition, make model year... a bike is a bike.

    you would never be able to pass that law if you were president... you arent even accounting for the other reason people ride, to save money on fuel and the environment. my bike costs about $3 a day to and from work, my car costs $14
    you are entitled to your opinions but wow, im sorry to hear how you feel.

    Oh there is no denying that there is a certain man-machine bond that is exhilarating. I'm sure if I rode a bike I would enjoy it, hell though I've never ridden a dirt bike but I think it would be a blast, I love looking at dirt bikes. But that's different, I like seeing dirt bikes in their element, on the off road away from traffic, well in dirt so to speak. Again not denying it's fun, just saying I enjoy driving and %90 of the times I cross paths with a biker it's either A in the case of a Harely rider just super annoying and obnoxious or B in the case of a sports bike rider just don't want to be sharing the road with a guy who's family might be suing me for vehicular manslaughter down the road just because the vehicle he rides is much more prone to get him ejected than mine in the case of an auto-accident regardless of the party at fault in reality. I would rather not see people riding bikes at all on the roads and definitely not on highways.

    Just the number of times I have been bothered by the obnoxious sounds of sports bikes racing or Harley's making gastro noises make it too many times. If I could erase that from my daily experience I would in a heartbeat, I'm just tired of it that's all. No anger like you mentioned nor rage, just a pipe dream that one day I don't have to deal with either type of bikes on the road nor the sub-cultures that sprout from them it's just a personal POV I find them both very silly. But then again, to each his own.

    I just wish every Bike rider really saw through every person's head whom he passes by and see how negative most people think of him he would realize it's neither cool nor attractive, plenty of people would be turned off to it. It's like smoking these days, since we are on the topic of girls and attractiveness. Smoking is fun (I should know I smoked for years before I quit) most girls don't find it attractive and don't think it's a sign that guy is worth committing to, I think bike riding has reached that level these days. You meet that 10/10 commitment grade woman, then she finds out you're obsessed with bike riding, she quickly takes you off her man of her dreams list. But the the 6/10 or 7/10 ladies might just give that R1 obsessed guy a chance.

    Then again 10/10 and 6/10 that's just relative to my prespective, my 10/10 might be your 6/10 who knows....and maybe who cares I'm just spamming the spam thread that's what I'm doing on a night like this

    Re: 24 Hour Random Discussion Thread

    From someone who has been riding for about 5 years now and has owned both cruiser and sport I can say that there are 2 sides to the motorcycle world and the bad side gets all the attention. I am one that always wears gear no matter how hot it is outside and when I have a loud exhaust I make sure to be a quiet as I can after 10pm and before 8am (after that I don't care and I apply the same rules to my sound system). The majority of responsible sport bike riders you are not going to see due to them more than likely being out on back roads enjoying what sport bikes are made for, sweeping turns at reasonable speed. The sport bike riders you see wearing nothing but a t shirt, shorts, sunglasses and tennis shoes are referred to as "Squids" and are normally looked upon as stupid and ignorant riders. Cruisers can be known as pirates if they have just all the leather but no helmet.

    I know quite a few "geezers" that ride sport bikes (touring and supersport) and will continue until they are unable to do so. I see people that are riding around with no gear as someone with a mid life crisis kinda thing going on but the ones who have at least helmet, jacket, gloves and jeans actually enjoy their hobby and treat it with respect. I'm not going to say I haven't taken the Ninja (god I miss her) to some crazy speeds on the highway but to my credit no one was around me and it was only for a short period of time. not saying that it makes it anymore right but I was smart (to some degree) about it. I prefer to own a sportbike over a cruiser as a personal choice for now, once I'm older that may change but I will never buy a Harley due to they are old technology with a new age price tag. If I want to have that V twin-esc sound I'll get a Ducati

    My bike is a toy and a hobby for me and I can't wait to get a new one once the time is right.
