Hey everyone. Is it just me or are the rims a real pain to clean sometimes. I find myself sitting by the bike with a bottle of wheel cleaner a wet rag and a dry rag. :crazyloco I'll clean the rim with the cleaner wipe it down with the wet rag and then dry it off. about 1/2 an hour or so for the rear rim. mainly all of the grime from the chain. the front one is the easy one about 5 min if that. It looks great in the end though so its probably worth it.:mfclap

Motorcycle can get over some obstacles that you wouldn't think were possible. A few years back a muffler fell off and came right at me. I was going straight thankfully but I managed to go right over it.

i remember in my motorcycle license class we had to drive over a 2x4 at 10mph. Which was nothing.

I just realized that he said 4x4. When i read a 4x4 feel off a truck for some reason i was thinking ATV and was amased you could drive over that. Still as good as it is, I obviously was seriously off. I dont think driving over an atv would be possible since its bigger than my bike

my bad :banghead

A friend of mine rode over a mattress that had fallen off a truck on the interstate at 70 mph. He body checked one of the cars in the neighboring lanes but didn't go down. He started wearing his helmet 24/7 after that. He was on an R6.
