Triumph and the January 2011 Vancouver motorcycle show

Posted 12-13-2010 at 12:11 PM by donbcivil

Sadly, the Eurobike manufacturers I'm most interested in (Triumph, KTM & BMW in that order) were not at the Seattle bike show last weekend.

They WILL be at the Vancouver/Abbotsford, BC show the weekend of Jan 21 which makes me think:

- I need to be in BC that weekend
- Why aren't those manufacturers at the seattle show?

Much Speed Triple sadness - severe mishap

Posted 09-05-2009 at 02:03 PM by donbcivil

The day after the Lois & Austin event at Adventure Motorsports, I set out on a planned 5 day solo expedition to BC.

The first day and a half went very well and I'll be posting pictures.

On the middle of the second day, falling rocks took us out. I've got sprains + negligible contusions but the Triumph looked very dead when a good samaritan passerby took me into town for help and the RCMP had her towed while they were trying to find me.

Will post...

Lois (http://www.loisontheloose.com/) rode from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego and down the continent of Africa; Austin Vince rode around the world with Mondo Enduro and Terra Circa (http://www.mondoenduro.com/).

Now they're speaking near Everett, WA on September 1.

Adventure Motorsports (Monroe) events

Posted 03-06-2009 at 12:36 PM by donbcivil

So I bought my DRZ at Adventure Motorsports and have had a few interactions with them since (gear shopping, breakin service) since them and am very impressed with their shop and people. EVERY person I've talked to there has been enthusiastic and helpful.

I've been talking with them about maybe doing some maintenance on their web site and the manager is also interested in having more events there. Some ideas I threw out:

- a riding club
- screening shows (e.g.,...

Had a discussion recently with a friend where we agreed it would suck to go on reserve in some situations.

Last night, I was heading towards Bothell…near the 522 interchange…just moved from the HOV lane to the fast lane and the DRZ started stalling. Luckily, traffic was light at the time (strange for 6 pm) and I got over to the right hand side without problem.

Turns out I must’ve had the fuel switch set to ON and not RESERVE…not sure when I did that though.

The REAL meaning of Valentines Day

Posted 02-12-2009 at 07:56 AM by donbcivil

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valentine%27s_Day

While some claim the first recorded association of Valentine's Day with romantic love is in Parlement of Foules (1382) by Geoffrey Chaucer[17] this may be the result of misinterpretation. Chaucer wrote:

"For this was on seynt Volantynys day

Whan euery bryd comyth there to chese his make."

Questioning a mod (will this disappear too?)

Thanks Mic for providing an example of why I find this site virtually intolerable now. If unintentionally.
