Re: Blue tooth head set

Back in 2007 I briefly had one of the first Bluetooth intercom systems, made by an outfit called BlueAnt. I also had a passenger for much of that year.

Re: Rain Riding

My current helmet will accept a pinlock, but I think it's a step backwards. My previous helmet's faceshield came with a really good anti-fog coating that worked well for about three years- and by then it had collected enough scratches to justify a new shield anyway. Now if I want fog-resistance I ha...

Re: Globulins?

Globulin is a type of blood-protein. John's British bike probably has a fair amount in its oil after performing certain maintenance and repair tasks.

Re: Do you have an all time favorite tool?
