  1. There's a meme on TikTok and YouTube using Rick Astley - Never Gonna Give You Up song. I ran across one the other day and I thought I would make one also. Had too much fun making this short. If you like it, please give it a Like. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  2. Ever climbed on your motorcycle and started out on a ride just wanting to take it slow? Yesterday I hung out with a Ninja and went to lunch at a restaurant I havenโ€™t been to in a while thatโ€™s a fair distance away. As always, Iโ€™m not the straight-line point A to point B sorta guy I take the road less traveled which in some cases can make the trip twice as far. I just could not get over how much the entire ride felt as if it were in slow motion. Made me feel so into what was going on in the moment. I did a search for this Documentary but/and didn't find it. Okay, the actual reason I came here to post. I know 95% of you guys have seen the Why We Ride documentary, so this is for the other 5%. To be honest for whatever reason I was in the 5% group even since this first came out in 2013, I had no interest in watching it, Iโ€™m not a Groupthink kinda guy. So, Iโ€™m browsing YouTube last evening and this documentary was recommended to me to watch. I think well what the heck Iโ€™ve never seen it what can it hurt, right? Wow, it only took me nine years to find out that this is a pretty cool documentary. When I saw the DVD setting on the shelf at motorcycle dealers, I just looked passed and never gave it much thought. If youโ€™ve not seen this documentary, I personally recommend you carve out 1h 29m and watch it. Itโ€™s pretty cool. Click the image below and it will take you to the YouTube documentary. You can watch the documentary on different platforms as well if you wish from the Why We Ride website.
  3. Just havin' fun ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ‘.

    Hot Battery

    2007 VFR800. What is causing my battery to overheat? Could smell it [battery] yesterday.
  6. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘. Well, I'm certainly NOT a professional. I just use my imagination and shot what I think would look cool. Then shot a whole bunch of it because 90 percent of it won't be worth a darn. Then take the 10 percent and see what becomes of it. Trust me I had my eyes wide open all the time. Most of the cool artwork is in the alleys. Certainly different riding through the alleys trying to avoid homeless individuals bed roles laying on the side. It's an experience. No matter how weird it was it was very cool to visit all that cool artwork. It would take me several months to film all the wall art in that area and don't think I could get it all. There was a point where I had to stop filming and go have a late lunch then head home. I'll go back someday and maybe get some more footage?? Never know. There is a Part 2 video of the River North I uploaded tonight. If you like it give it a thumbs up and comment if you wish, it helps the YouTube algorithms and I get more views that way ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘.
  7. The Ninja and I spent the day downtown yesterday. Most of the time in the RiNo (River North) district. It's a developing area in the city of Denver. It's also where Revzilla has their store so that makes it cool. Very near Coors Field and surrounded by a lot, and I mean a lot, of wall art around the neighborhood. I took a truck load of footage but had to pick and choose from the overload of clips. Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘.
  8. Thanks. Not too bad for 33 years old. Still runs flawlessly. Wonderful motorcycle to ride ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘.
  9. A YouTube short added to my channel today.
  10. The t-shirt I listed above is for a website that sells motorcycle t-shirts.
  11. Welcome Roots. What a beautiful VF1000R. What I wouldn't give up to own a VF1000R. Enjoy your good fortune and enjoy your rides. ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘
  12. There's a lesson to be learned here. The Aftermarket doesn't have all the answers no matter how much you wish it did.
  13. I tried your technique of turning the handlebars fully to the left and pulling on that bar as you lift with your righthand on the rear pannier bracket while pushing down on the center stand peddle today. Worked GREAT! Yes, I know that every video will tell you NOT to turn the front wheel in any direction, but I'm telling you it felt much better for me to do than leaving the front wheel straight and not using that handlebar as some sort of leverage. I will definitely be turning the handlebars to the left and using that bars side to help pull the bike backwards and onto the stand!!!! Thank you so much for the advice on using that technique. A real confidence booster.
  14. True. I found the passenger peg a bit too low for me as well to get a proper hold and lift as I'm pushing down with my foot.
