I see that. lol! I just wanted to take my bike somewhere to get washed!

It is a boy thing, to want it all clean and pretty. We're happy if it works!
Haha! Right! I rode this weekend.. just dusted the seat off and I was ready to go! It's not that urgent to wash it.

lol! .... I'm not brave enough to ride that often yet. I still need to practice... for some reason I have an issue with slowing down and stopping... and I'm pretty sure that's important.

Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor said men are in charge of 2 things around the house: lawn care and vehicle maintenance.

I quit mowing the lawn long time ago. For $35, Jorge does such a nice job, and I don't need to sweat my off and/or sneeze my head off for 2hrs. I still cling on to vehicle maintenance though. This way, I'm at least 1/2 the man I used to be.

Disclaimer: I'm a girl too so don't ask to suck the I don't have either.
For what it's worth I was offering to suck 7cains , not skittles that doesn't exist...The whole thing has a back story. See the "good tire shop" thread for explanation.

Although I think it may be too late for redemption

Oh and I had avatars turned off, otherwise I would've noticed the pink shoes.

As far as the skittles name goes, I could have thought he was gay, right? You know, "taste the rainbow"


Some biker bars will occasionally do bike washes to promote the bar...but seriously it's best to either wash it your self, or just be "ridin' dirty".
The main thing is that you keep up on chain maintenance, oil changes, ect.

If you lose you have to rotate my tires for life, free of charge.

Bro I took auto tech in highschool for four years. That's all these teachers did was bring their cars in for oil change and rotation.

I can tell you with 100% certainty that it is not humanly possible for one person to rotate tires on any car without a lift and impact wrench.
The whole thing was a jew stunt to get free lifetime tire rotations.

Can you be more specific? Are you having trouble with the downshifting or are you not coming to a stop fast enough?

Also keep in mind that riding more often makes you better at it(obviously), but you worded it like it was the other way around. They key is to avoid heavy traffic areas/times while you are learning. You can't be afraid otherwise you will never learn.
