    I wish I had read this completely before changing my oil. It would have really helped me make less of a mess.

    Why pay the dealer $100+ for an oil change? Do it yourself. Invest in the right tools and get the job done quickly, easily and without too much mess.

    SOA is one of our favorite tv shows at Retrocycle. It has a great cast including Ron Perlman, Katy Sagal (Peg on Married with Children) and Charlie Hunnam as Jax. Even if you are not into bikes and biker culture you will like the show. It is very well written and very action packed.

    Season 2

    Holiday gift idea: Bluetooth Headset for motorcycle helmets

    November 25th, 2011 Post a Comment »

    I don’t have any experience with these and don’t know which are best. Personally I like being out of touch when on my bike, and less distracted, but some people really like these biker bluetooth headsets as an intercom between helmets, between bikes and to your phone.

    Can anyone recommend a bluetooth motorcycle headset that works well?
