  1. Hello, past riders, new riders, I hope everyone is alive, keeping well and living a great life ... it's been awhile. My last Blade was a 2010 model ... I sold that off in 2014. I haven't been riding since. I guess priorities change, but from time to time, I do reminisce about the adventures I've had and the friends I've made ... best times of my life. Live long and prosper folks ...
  2. if you are using 190/55, then your mileage is actually more than what is indicated on the clock, so you may be getting 21x km or so, which is normal. Read this up on FP60. http://lubecontrol.com/fuel.htm

  4. When you pump 17.4L, that is when it is dry. Looks like you have 1.9L left in the tank, which is good for another 30 plus km. Your reserve is quite an accurate 4L, with 0.1L for evaporation.
  5. Are you using 190/55 rear tire?
  6. Try a fuel nozzle cleaner and see if you are getting nay results, you know, those stuffs you empty into the fuel tank.
  7. But the Streetfighter can't touch the Blade IMO. ESPN wanted to do a program on an Italian bike once, they wanted someone local to review the bike and was talking to me about it. I asked if I could live with the bike for 2 weeks so I can do a proper review. The answer I got (from this lady) was, "Well, a bike journalist in Europe had already done the review and said good things about it. I trust him because he rides a Brutale". In my mind, I was like, WTF?
  8. My M5 was loosing 20kPa per day, I changed back to 190/50 now.
  9. @ColdFusion - What's the size of your rear tire, 190/55? When I changed to M5 Interact, I specifically asked for 190/50, but I just checked, my Blade is fitted with 55 rear profile, 6.126cm larger circumference. What this means is, I am actually riding faster, covering more distance and using more fuel than indicated on the clock. Gulp. I should call up BS and tell them I screwed up. I should add another couple of hp to the dyno chart reading.
  10. Everyone else probably has the same pic, so I'll post something different. @ayyang, i have a candid clip of you doing the drunken walk, should include in your video project.
  11. LOL, what do you mean by normal? We all ride this bike normally. Mobil 1 is fine. It's nice to finally put a face to all these nicks that we've been so used to on this thread. The memories I have for this outing are, everyone's mouth is gaping wide, either from stuffing food or laughing out loud. Everyone just got along easily, this really is a fantastic group of riders! Give yourself a pat on the back.
  12. I'll leave at 8:19. Should be there at 8:20.
  13. Very light drizzle. Clearing up, but sky is quite dark this morning.
  14. OMG!!! Your nose and ears are not virgin??? Hahahahahaha. For being the Roberto of the year, you get the golden carrot award!
  15. Next time ask me to go with you. When you see him again, ask him about this legendary Blader who got LTA to approve a homologated Arrow without rivet, something he could not achieve. He still owes this Blader a meal.
  16. Talking about a SSDC instructor reminds me of a true story. When my gf was taking her theory, an instructor asked the class if there is a motorcycle with reverse gear. When my gf replied with a confident "Yes", the whole classroom bursted out with laughter. So the instructor asked again, which motorcycle has reverse gear, and she replied, "Goldwing!" "This girl is right" he responded. The whole classroom fell into a dead silence. so what is the moral of the story?

  18. Finally, some good weather today, passing showers only in the afternoon. Anybody for JB?
  19. I thought I'll share my petrol kiosk moment. I was getting my tires up to pressure at the pump when a hot milf in a California pulled up behind me. I was doing my mental sums, compensating for slightly warmed up tires, pump inaccuracy, checking with a digital gauge ... all the while she was patiently waiting in her prancing horse. When I was done, I pushed my bike away so she could use my spot while I washed my hands. On the way back, there was already a pump attendant helping her with her tires. She walked over to me and apologized, said she didn't mean to rush me. I told her no w
  20. LOL, how can you simply poke ppl's wife? Did you aim properly or just slide around all over the place until it hits the spot?
  21. Why don't you wait till Sat? The dealers should be baring their wares then with discount, or are you eager to slip something on for photoshoot? I haven't been there, not sure where to park, but since it's nearby CB Forum, riding there together would be nice.
