    Weird Engine Break-in Protocol

    I'm 63, and am often amazed I made it through high school (and even college) without accidentally killing myself driving or riding. Things change quickly as we age!

    Possession of (and riding) a criminal tool 😅

    Yup, this is my bike, and the builder is a freak about gentle break-in, along with very frequent oil and filter changes within the first 200 miles. The engine alone for this project cost me just about half the total price, so I'm erring on the side of caution.

    Funny picture thread.

    Absolutely delicious! The chef there is a creative genius; most people just dont understand his cuisine.

    Where's the Monkey??

    The new Honda Monkey is pretty damn cool, and there are several Honda dealerships near where I live, but I've not seen even ONE on the road yet. Maybe these bikes are not as big a hit as Honda imagined they would be. I'd certainly rather own one of those than a Grom. Anyone else seen 'em? What a perfect commuter bike . . .

    How aggravating. No leashes/electric fences available in the area? I love dogs, but I likely would have kicked this one but good.

    Recon, someone else earlier in this thread raised a similar point to the one you make here, and this is something important that every new owner should pay attention to. Great advice. It's almost as if the universe is telling us to go easy for both our and our bikes' sake.

    Yup, this makes perfect sense. I'm in no hurry. My bike will be a commuter, and will be kept for a very long time.

    Well, this is certainly convincing evidence. I'm not going to chance it either. Slow and easy can't hurt for those first few months, and that's what I'm going to do. Frequent oil changes are cheap insurance, too. I've put a lot of money into the bike I'm having built--and about half the cost was a custom-built engine.

    Lets fix this ear plug BS

    Scuba: "I love the points you made about OSHA vs OH law and the BMV recommendations vs law." Scuba, I loved that Jim mentioned that, too! It was genius to suggest that hearing protection is so important that the law is regularly "broken" in the face of common sense. A brilliant rhetorical move; perhaps unintentional, but brilliant nonetheless 😆

    Lets fix this ear plug BS

    The fact that there were zero negative comments and few questions from the representatives in today's video suggests to me that this WILL, as Jim said, likely sail on through the Senate.

    Democracy in action. Kinda cool! I think a lot of us (myself included) sometimes forget that WE elect these folks, and that they represent US and OUR wishes.
