If you are riding a tomos from NYC to NJ you have to be extra careful when your bike starts to accelerate to 70mph as you cross the state border.
Bodily injury is/should be covered separately from the totaled value of the bike.$800 isnt bad - I got $350 for my totaled ns50 (I held on to the bike obviously)
With all the fascinating history of engineering, racing and weird experiments in motor design found among many of the models in the Barber Vintage Museum I'd find an LTD pretty bland in comparison.One of my fav tidbits about Barber is that (supposedly) 99% of the bikes there can be up and riding within an hour- they have a fully outfitted restoration/machine shop on site.
If you have an ez pass you can get a reduced motorcycle rate- the only toll routes I'd take in/out of the city on a moped would be Holland tunnel (toll) or maybe the Henry Hudson- you could also get away with taking the George Washington (esp when there is traffic) cause you can get right off before getting on the highway. Otherwise if you are coming in from the north there are plenty of free
Nobody is likely to know about the laws regarding mopeds. But as UGP stated and for other safety reasons (cars passing you etc) you should ride in the road, not on the shoulder. Use your best judgement about placement in the lane- if your moped is fast enough then take whichever lane position (left, center,right) is best for the situation. If you are much slower than traffic best to stay to the ri
I've had similar symptoms before my ns50 and mb5 and they turned out to be simple issues- clogged fuel line, clogged idle jet, clogged/incorrectly tuned pilot circuit, etc
Me n Dillon have been discussing a "Dorkar" two-day enduro circuit for peds and baby bikes. Pachaug St Forest in CT has trails that are said to be not technical enough for real dort borks which sounds good for dirtpeds. There has been a (single day but for real enduro bike) enduro circuit there before. Otherwise I've been turning up empty handed on potential places to do any woods
Worth noting that many "rare earth metals", especially ones used in solar panels and wind turbines aren't particularly "rare" (they were rare when they were first discovered)- neodymium is close to copper and nickel in abundance. It's absolutely true that mining in general is an extremely destructive process, but extraction is necessary for fossil fuels as well (not t
You really do just eat up whatever shit they serve you on fox news... what you are looking for is called a life cycle analysis- an engineering assessment of the total impact a product or process has over its life cycle including production (raw resources, infrastructure, etc), use , maintenance and eventual dissolution. Yes, obviously wind, solar and nuclear all require energy, resources and machi
Sick RZ! I had the opportunity to look at a beautiful cheap Honda ns250 when I was shopping but I wanted a long ride bike and that was ~not~ the bike for it.I'll plug my own bike for anyone looking for babydv/touring- I got a cb500x for 3.5k with about as many miles and the thing is such a great little swiss-army knife. Not great at anything but pretty good at lots of things. Rode it 10k acro
It also occurs to me that one of the big challenges of small bores would be weight/ carrying capacity- adding another 70lb or so of fuel, tools, parts, food, water and gear might not shake a klr 650 so much but will heavily bog down a moped with no gearing and little torque. Either dividing gear up among a larger group (either other small bores or a few patient friends with torquier bikes) or havi
Some moped dudes did some of it, I've also seen a post about doing it on vintage two stroke enduros. The eastern half of the TAT seems pretty doable but the west seems to present a lot more difficulty - plus with two strokes elevation might become more of an issue. I am under the impression that any reasonable DS bike, like an xt250 or tw200 etc can make it.I'd def be into trying on some
Frame sliders like on a big stunt pickle could be a cool addition. I bet for the most part your pegs prevent you from hitting your cases but It might be nice to have a little cage around the head that attach to the peg/engine mounts so you are less likely to hit anything when you go down. Even some pieces of HDPE on the ends of the pegs and bars would probably help a lot in extending their life- y
Okay but where are my euroboy race plastics huh???Nice job guys can’t wait to try one out
As an aside China/India/Thailand does not mean bad manufacturing. There are lots of very high end manufacturing plants in those countries- overhead costs (land/labor/resources) allow them to be cheaper than plants in western countries (in my experience the cost to get a to get injection mold tooling made is like literally 50x cheaper in most cases). It's not to say that there aren't tons
Hiya- you have any old non-ny plates no longer registered to anything? bonus if is say "moped" on it. I'm tryna buy one- slide into my DMs you feel me
Boston is really shit for tacos- dont do it. I've heard Anna's Taqueria makes decent burritos but better yet get something like middle eastern (azama grill is great near Pike Powdercoating) or like some good ol clam chowdah.

Riding gloves (or other moto gear items) make excellent gifts as you can go as cheap or expensive as you want- plus lots of moped riders dont bother with gloves but should/would if they were given a pair.
Hot security tip - leash one of these kooky bastards to your moped and nobody will want to come near lest they be lambasted with Reagan-era dog whistles and batshit political conspiracies

If my friends and I are just out for a day of riding we will probably take some known blasty roads to some point of interest like food or an event then maybe go try to discover some weird industrial parts of the city, head to a bar (especially one where we know bartenders) then blast home or someones house/bar/ event more local to where we live to party moreMost rides I do are only an hour or two-

When I first learned tig I learned from this Irish guy pale as paper wearing shorts and a t shirt and only one glove. Silly me figured maybe tig doesn't generate UV rays like mig in the same way it doesn't generate spatter. I tig'd for an hour in my tank top and got some nasty burns up my arms and inside my armpits- definitely a first for a burn there.I still regularly tig in my rid
Yeah wheel chock / Rachet straps is the way to go- also helps keep your bike from getting knocked over in case somebody trips in the shop.
@Travis - fusion is a completely different animal than inventor or 3d stuff in autocad- I find it equal (and occasionally better) to Solidworks (which I've been working with professionally for 5+ years) for most simple part modeling and vastly prefer it for CAM.As far as assembly tools it's a few things. The joint functions (sort of the equivalent to mates) are extremely clunky, like to
^I'd refute that Fusion is tailored to corporate as it lacks a lot of the PDM/ assembly tools needed for large design teams. Plus it's free for small businesses and hobbyists who seem to make up a large part of the online community. I think it's more tailored towards the small design/prototyping/product firms due to it's focus on remote design sharing, platform integration (mod
This should be in OffTopicBut I definitely recommend Fusion 360 it has very solid tools for parametric modeling and can handle surfaces and more organic shapes in the sculpt environment with future additional functionality like dreamcatcher for generative design. The built in CAM environment is excellent for CNC- just as powerful as a program like MasterCAM (at least for 3 axis) but way easier to
