You know, I hadn't really thought about that.

Perhaps an airsoft Uzi clipped to the handlebars?

No, it wouldn't end well. I'd wind up flying off the side of a picturesque snow-capped mountain in Austria while the hero rides to safety alongside the beautiful Russian girl in a large cello case.

I saw this near our glorious Reitz Union a few weeks back. I figured you'd appreciate it.

Honestly, the discontinuation of Little Bird surprised me.

I mean, that bike was basically the VW Beetle of motorcycles, and not in a bad way. The design was completely unmolested from 1982 all the way until the end of the run. 25 years, and they never changed a single part. What other motorcycle can boast that sort of lineage? Ok, so the Harley Softail hasn't changed since 1642, and they're still carving the pistons out of oak. But apart from that?

Honestly, I'd have thought MSF sales alone would have kept it afloat, in much the same way that Ford keeps digging up the corpse of the Crown Vic and dusting it off for the fleet buyers.

And now I will possibly crush your dreams. I'd bet that some of those motards aren't sold in Cali, since there pretty much lightly modified dirt bikes and California is dumb. sry:(
That's the funny part, actually.

It's no surprise that the Lifans and other Chinese bikes aren't CARB-approved. (Yes, I honestly thought about it.) The TU250 was a surprise, what with closed-loop injection and all. Give it another year or two.

But the motards? Dude. If it weren't for California, those bikes wouldn't exist. The big four probably sell more off-road thumpers in SoCal alone than in the whole rest of the world combined. Drive 15 miles inland from the coast and you're in the Sonoran Desert, where you can't swing a dead cat without hitting five hundred off-roaders complete with their fancy campers. We have Glamis. We have Heber. We have The Dunes. For a Japanese manufacturer, building an offroad bike and not getting CARB certification on it would be suicide. And since the motards are just dirtbikes with headlights and street tires, it's no surprise that during the summer months they outnumber the sportbikes by at least 3:1 at every dealership.

Which is why I find it interesting that those bikes still have carburetors.

Well, that's good to hear (that there popular over there). We see cruisers, crotch rockets and little else over here.
There must me some good reason they still are carb'd

I like that. I like these supermoto things. I've never been into bikes, but if I ever got one I'd want something small like this:



I guess I like the whole dirtbike feel of it.

I had a friend selling this one...I should hav ebought it and killed myself:

Yeah, but it's all a bunch of superbike fanboys who wouldn't know panache if it lept up out of the ground and sunk its razor-sharp teeth into their gonads.

This is getting out of hand, incidentally. Turns out you can find RD-350s pretty cheaply, and so long as they've got more than 7,500 miles on 'em, they can be imported into CA:




An open letter to the California Air Resources Board:
Dear CARB,

Seriously? I can buy a 70's vintage 2-cycle bike and burn whale oil in it, but I can't buy a brand new, fuel-injected TU250X?
Anybody here ever Megasquirted a 2-cycle engine?

I spent the better part of 2 years almost killing myself on one of these:


The sound of a 2 stroke twin, under load, in the red, is reason enough alone to want one.

And because badass:

7.) DIY High-compression Miata
Suggested By: y8s
Why it's brilliant: A great trolling requires some work, and "SERformance" did his homework, going as far to doctor an autocar article to give some credibility to his troll bait. SERformance was looking for advice on a plan to welding a chunk of metal to his Miata's pistons to "to raise the compression ratio." You don't have to know much about cars to know that this is probably a terrible idea, and the people of MX5Miata.net did not hold back their opinions when it came to SERformance's continued trollitude. See the whole debacle unfold here.

Japolink - You suck with all the links and credits.

That was MY picture, I should get the credit. Hell it sits on MY picture server

and omfg you ******* morons. we trolled HIM - we doctored that article to encourage him to actually fo through with it.

Got this today, the walkthough for core removal and replacement is rather lengthy, I don't think I have all of the necessary tools yet either:
