FP Racing Shorty Lever Install and Impressions
I first install the FP Racing shorty levers on my Gixxer and then give my final impressions of them. I fell that these levers are WAY nicer then the Chinese ones that I put on my CBR250R. Link to MotoMummy: https://www.motomummy.com/levers/fp-racing-sport-lever-set/

How to Pick up Your Motorcycle... like a girl [LJ's Archives]
"Learn to laugh at yourself, or others will do it for you." Remixing some old classics. Trolls were getting out of control, and the old intro music I used to use was not kosher per YouTube (no idea where I found the song originally and no way to contact the artist for permission). So, let's start over! And no more moderated comments! *balloons! confetti!* Oh, and for the record, it was not "one rock." There were dozens. Ergo, I picked up one of the rocks and "made an example of it." That'll learn 'em. Dumb rocks. ORIGINAL VIDEO DESCRIPTION: And, frankly, how to drop it like a girl. This is in the "how to and style" category, because not only do I demonstrate how-- I do it with style. I have over 11,000 miles on 2 wheels, and this is my most serious incident yet. I ride safe and do my best to keep it shiny side up. But, mistakes happen. Hopefully, I am the sort who learns from them. The best I can figure, my rear tire went nut-zo on the rocks, and I in turn when a little nut-zo on the front brake. I don't remember grabbing it, but it wouldn't have taken much, with my back tire already losing traction and the front tire already turned... Glancing down as it happened certainly didn't help. Target fixation FTW! It's everything I know not to do, and everything I practice and drill not to do... *sigh* Any questions?
How To Clean & Lube Your Motorcycle Chain
Here's a step-by-step tutorial on how to clean and lube your motorcycle chain. I know there are a few different ways, and my moto jargon is probably not perfect, but this is pretty basic and something everyone should know how to do. It the easiest way to get the longest life out of your chain and sprocket. You should lube it every 300-500 miles, and do a full clean and lube such as I am doing here every 3,000 miles, but my chain is starting to get old and kinked, so I do it anytime it seems dirty or dry.
