New York City Bicycle Infrastructure

Just a quick edit of some riding we did back in February when in town for the International Motorcycle Show. We were pleased.

ADK Trip Spring 2013

A weekend getaway to the Adirondacks is always too short. A quick stop in Old Forge, Saranac Lake, and Potsdam.

Zen and the Art of Headgasket Replacement

Zen and The Art of Motorcycle Head-Gasket Replacement from Troy Rank on Vimeo.


While getting my “winter” bike ready, I had to go through and replace the headgasket, and while I’d rather have spent the time working on some electric bike project, the venerable Nighthawk 700 has been far too good to me to neglect it. Unfortunately, it apparently still needs valve seals. The life of a winter beater bike is not an easy one 🙂

Try to ignore the **ahem** awkward camera angles, and appreciate my “artistic” efforts 🙂

If you couldn’t make it to my talk this past Saturday, here’s the talk on Riding Iceland:

Troy Rank and his fiance, Kerra took a very unusual motorcycle trip last June. They flew to Iceland where they rented an F650GS to tour around. If you followed their Blog, you’ll already know a bit about this adventure.Troy has offered to come to CRM and tell you more about this exciting trip and show photos of picturesque Iceland. This will be very interesting as this is not a place most of us would consider for a motorcycle tour. Troy may be familiar to some of you as he sometimes helps out CRM on the sales floor. Don’t miss this fun event.

Winter Trail Adventure

Yesterday it was a gorgeous winter day, just cold enough to snow. I decided to check out a trail on my DR-650 with road tires… This is the chaos that ensued 🙂
