2023.06.06 04:43 MeltedBeef Himalayan, 390 Adventure, or KLR 650

Getting a new bike soon. Have had several old school dual sports but it’s been a solid 15 years and those bikes were 20+ years old. In my head I’ll be on the dirt more than anything but realistic miles often end up around town for quick trips to the grocery, etc. I don’t need or want to ride the interstate but do have plenty of 65 mph rural highways around. Western Colorado in the mountains. Thoughts? (I’ve seen similar posts but thought I’d put it up for fresh consideration as there’s a lot of interest in these bikes).

Worth it? ‘09 328i xdrive with 143,00km (88k miles)
Is his car worth it? 2009 BMW 328i xdrive with 143,00km for $7700 Canadian. The car seems to be in good shape and has had a good amount of maintenance done recently which makes it more compelling. I would try to negotiate. Please be honest. I’ve heard the E90/N52 seems to be a reliable choice if well maintained.

2023.06.05 14:18 Hoogs Episode #759 - Timothy O’Donnell Is Lucky to Be Alive: Honing Mental Fitness, Finding Joy in Training, and Surviving a Heart Attack Midrace - June 5, 2023

Episode Link YouTube Link
Episode Description:
In the U.S. alone, one person dies every 33 seconds from cardiovascular disease.
Over 650,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year. In other words, America’s number one killer claims 1 out of every 5 deaths.
Not all heart attacks are fatal. But when your heart’s left anterior descending artery becomes 100% blocked, the result is a massive heart attack known as The Widowmaker.
Few survive its fatal clutch.
Today’s guest Timothy O’Donnell beat the odds.
A professional long-course triathlete with over 50 podium finishes, including more than 25 wins at major events throughout the world, Tim is the 2009 ITU Long Distance World Champion, placed 2nd at the 2019 Ironman World Championships in Kona, and became the first American to finish that race in under 8 hours.
Tim’s impressive 20-year athletic journey (and more importantly his life) nearly came to a tragic end in 2021 when he suffered a widowmaker heart attack in the middle of a half-ironman race. Somehow, Timothy was able to finish the race, placing 11th, and making it to the hospital in time to make a full recovery.
A year after his heart attack, Tim returned to racing at the Ironman 70.3 in Chattanooga, placing 6th overall. The next month he took 3rd place at Ironman Des Moines, defying all odds and qualifying for the Ironman World Championship.
Tim’s journey is nothing short of astonishing. Today he opens up about the strange dichotomy between his elite fitness and near-death experience, his decision to return to racing, and the critical importance of lifestyle choices for endurance athletes of all levels.
We also talk about his experience at the Naval Academy and tenure as a Naval officer, triathlon professional athlete representation in the media today, his thoughts on the Norwegian Train, the future of triathlon, advice for amateur athletes, and more.

I’ve been looking for a crash bar for my new ninja 650 krt. I could get some frame sliders but the crash bar would be a lot more protective right? I can’t seem to find any good ones that have a reasonable amount of reviews that aren’t on eBay. Is there any you would recommend or should I just get frame sliders and if so which ones?

Is this too good to be true?
Recently unemployed, and got an email for my first potential freelance gig. Unfortunately I have already been a scammed from a previous employment fraud (that I’m dealing with rn) involving a work from home position, I really just need some insight if this is how things are usually done. Is there a certified way to make sure the checks arent fraud? Does this seem real in your opinion? Again I’m new to this and I don’t want a repeat of what happened last time? How do you make sure you get paid for your work? etc

I got me a problem n I even pay for it. Help
I got me this 1982 Kawasaki xj 650 last week. Bike it’s on one piece. Not many parts Missing. It looks like somebody was tweaking on it. It got few electrical parts replaced… like they were trying to get it to work by just replacing parts one by one. Any ways I got the old gas out of the tank. Oil changed did it too. I bought a new battery… and just rebuild the carburetor which they were in pretty bad shape… I didn’t have spark. Now I do…. I got compression on all cylinders… after all that I try turning it on. N this is what I get…. Can somebody please guide me the way to go

2023.06.03 23:15 ZimmermanTelegram What am I looking for?

Currently ride a 1985 Honda Magna which is a blast, but I'm looking for something that corners better than it. I'm thinking some kind of sport touring bike but a lot of them seem pretty tall compared to the Magna, even though I'm 5'11. I did sit on an MT-07 once just for giggles and while it seemed semi comfortable I don't think I'd want to ride for many miles on it.
Open to ADV bikes too but they also seem really tall, I had to stretch to get both feet down on a KLR 650

I need help with my father in laws 1996 Kawasaki KLR 250.
I was driving the bike around and my father in law handed me the factory signal lights that haven't been on the bike since he bought it. I'm pretty handy so I figured it would be easy. The front signal lights bolted on and the wires where right there. But the problem arose with the rear one's, because there are only two wires but there are two wires per signal light. In addition to this the front signal lights don't blink they just stay on (relay messed up?).

2023.06.03 16:59 650cc_espresso Tips and tricks for riding in cross-winds.

Hello everybody.
So I just came back from a small loop of about 150km (90miles) around Bucharest (where are you from?) but it was super windy with mostly cross-winds of around 30-40km/h (20-24mph)
I felt like taking on a left-hook, then right-hook, then body slam, then repeat and so forth.
Do you have any tips and tricks for riding in high cross-winds ?
(I am riding a Kawasaki Versys 650)
I had some brown-pants moments during the ride :P.

2023.06.03 16:44 650cc_espresso Drone like/whining noise at higher speeds

Hello, I ride a 2015 Kawasaki Versys 650 LTE.
I recently had the chain slack be adjusted from quite a big value back into speck (6.5cm back into the 2.5-3.5cm range.)
Today I went for a longer ride and at higher speed there is this whining like sound, like a small quad-coptedrone is following me - buzzing of the rotors (I'm not crazy ... I think).
And when I pull in the clutch and let it coast at higher speeds the whining is more apparent (cut out the noise of the engine).
I hope this is just the chain readjusting to the new tension after its been very loose but what else could it be ?
Have a great day !

What kind of maintenance do you guys do after the winter for your bike? I live in northeast US. I was out traveling, so will be getting back home soon. Wanted to make sure the bike is in good condition to drive again. Oh, btw it's a 2014 Kawasaki Ninja 650.
I did a full synthetic oil change and sparkplug change last summer. I know I'll need to get new tires this year.
Any tips?

2023.06.03 04:53 Quixus 650 cc bike pricing

Can someone explain what Kawasaki was thinking when they came up with the prices for the various 650 cc bikes?
Z650: cheapest. Least amount of features, right?
Ninja 650: OK, same features but more plastic means more expensive than the Z650
Vulcan S: Here it gets weird. No LED lights, not a full TFT instrument cluster, no app support and as of 2023 no traction control but it is more expensive than the previous two.
Versys 650: Back to the full feature set but longer suspension. The price increase from the Ninja seems a bit large but it makes sense that it would be more expensive.
[edit]For clarification I am talking about the German pricing. Actual numbers in this comment.[/edit]

2023.06.03 00:34 afewspicybois SWM Silver Vase vs DRZ400SM?

For background, I rode dirt bikes from when I was 5-17, got back in to riding a few years ago. I’m looking at upgrading my bike at the moment, currently on a Suzuki GW250, but just want something a bit more fun
So I really had my eye on a DRZ400, but I guess the biggest issue buying secondhand is that they’re mostly owned by young blokes (so, they’ve been absolutely flogged). I can’t afford to buy new
I had a bit of a look and there’s an SWM Silver Vase secondhand, fairly cheap, looks in decent enough condition. I’ve read up on their history and note the concerns about Chinese ownership, but I’m wondering, is it going to be an alright bike from a mechanical point of view? I mainly ride to the gym (10 minute round trip) and every other weekend, so it’s not seeing daily use, but I don’t want something that’s going to die in a year
Yes, I understand I might not be buying the same reliability, but surely the SWM is a bit better than a braaap or something like that? I’m not interested in buying a braaap to be clear and I’m concerned the SWM is of similar quality
Other options considered were the Suzuki DR650 or Kawasaki KLR650, but I figure they’re getting to be quite big and realistically mostly doing short commuting on a 650 seems like I’m going a bit too big
