    Rear crash bars

    You could say something similar about most companies who have manufacturing facilities in different countries. So but your metric is Apple Chinese?

    Rear crash bars

    R-Gaza is in LATVIA not Russia. Shipping is fairly quick about a week or so depending on holidays. They did, or possibly, still do have a manufacturing facility in St Petersburg. 52 Slokas iela Riga, Latvia LV1007 [email protected] Tel: +371-2-9358646 I have no association with them...

    Leaning...

    Off-road training and practice is also very good for "the street" as the street is full of surprises. Oil, diesel, road-kill, Gravel, Pedestrians etc. Off-road training helps you learn to manoeuvre to your advantage on "interesting" surfaces. Which reminds me, I haven't done any real off-road...

    Road riding and track riding are not the same. That's why there's a difference.

    Eclipse tank bag slides too much

    I have the Sw-Motech Pro Daypack tank bag. It needs a mounting ring which is extra but is really easy to install and doesn't detract from the look of the tank. I'm really happy with it. Easy to put on and take off. Won't scratch the tank. You can lock it in place (extra) or make your own...

    Flashing ABS Light

    A couple of weeks ago I was on a ride, the DGR ride, and we stopped in a gravelled area. Shortly after setting off again the ABS light started flashing. It would flash intermittently for a random period with no apparent reason, or so I thought. Cleaning the sensors didn't fix the problem so I...

    Any one else notice gas mileage has decreased significantly?

    Using Ethanol in your fuel will result in reduced miles per gallon (mpg) as the "energy" value of ethanol is less than that of petrol. Ergo, the more ethanol in the fuel, the fewer miles per gallon. Depending on your vehicle and driving style, it could be more costly, mpg-wise, to use the...
