I ended up getting a subscription to the new redesigned version of CycleWorld. I dig it. Whoever their new designer is actually gives a shit. Clean and balanced design with articles I actually read. Reminds me of when I was a kid and had a subscription to Ride or Dig magazines for bmx.

Dcar and Ale were nice enough to invite us to eat all their Mexican food. Went for a ride. Got mad at a d bag on a Harley who cut us all off on purpose. Good times.
What’s up with the bmw cool-aide lately? Who’s next? Ben? John G? Harley boys gonna buy running bmw’s so they can come camp this year? I’ve seen more bmw bumble-dakar’s in the last 3 weeks then I ever have in my life.

This winter has been horrible and long. Thursday rides are on. Bring your junker out.
Saturday was the best day I’ve had so far in 2018. Woke up early, checked out Adams KZ head he picked up from machine shop. Rode the IT to the coffee shop Andrew Brooks used to work at. Hung for a while. Met at LC to leave for camping. Great to hang and people watch. […]
I called megacycle camshafts because I had some cam questions. Some old tech-lady I spoke with was great. We talked about a bunch of shit. She asked what oil I normally use. I said conventional 10-40 mc oil. She said nope, that shit ain’t good enough. She said I really need to be using an […]
There is a blog post I meant to make showing the engine cases split and trans all disassembled. Showing the new crank installed and me confused about what was wrong with the trans because everything looked perfect. I forgot to make that post oops. So… Turns out the it250 has a spring loaded pin inside […]
The below info is mostly for my own personal future reference, but hopefully someone else out there in internet space gets a benefit from it. Obviously a ton of options for aftermarket cams, but I’m going to highlight only three specific cams. specifically for the z1 / kz900 / kz1000 motor. specifically for 1015cc or […]
I always look forward to the Norton Meet. It’s the start of the season. Washington Crossing, just east of New Hope PA, Sunday – April 15th at 10am. Below black/white pictures are from 2010. Rain backup plan: If its legit planned to start raining Sat night or Sunday before noon, this is the new plan […]
Adam and I came out to Portland for the one moto show. Lots of photos – might take a while to load. Highlights: – caught up and stayed with our buddy Ryan – NZ Colin was there. Hung with him – saw our college friend Brian B – saw Kevin Ludwig and his new shop […]
Our friend George sent over another vintage Z1 article. It’s the same year and color scheme as mine. From George; “I wanted to wish you and the clan a happy New Year. I ran across this Z1 article (Big Bike September 1974) and though Ed might a copy of it. It’s a pretty basic stock […]
George is one of our buddies who comes out on Thursday rides periodically. He sent over this article from an old Cycle Guide mag. Denco was an old performance company. They list the mods they made to their z1. Fuck the z1 and kz’s are the best. I did a Kelly loop on mine last […]
Cycle Guide – December 1981 These old ads are so great. So much better than the new garbage advertising agencies are putting out these days.
Maybe I’m wrong in thinking this way; but I never put much effort into fine tuning the front suspension on my other bikes. For example, on my 74 Z1, I bought progressive suspension brand front springs, put them in with the pvc spacers… it was stiffer, so I thought, “cool, feels good, done”. I didn’t […]
We’ve been doing the dirt bike stuff for a pretty long time now. I’ve been thinking about what fun things we could do this coming 2018, that are slightly out of the ordinary. Different than our normal mc activities. I don’t want to come up with a crazy list though. I think there are two […]
So things are getting weird. For clarity, other than popping out of gear which is the reason for the tear down, my it250 runs super crisp. Gobs of power. Compression is spot on. After taking the cylinder off, the piston looks perfect. Zero scoring on piston or cylinder. Rings also look perfect. So I didn’t […]
I’m sure it is. Mine is. My IT250 suspension is clapped out like mikes moms squeeze box. It’s beat the F up. Since it’s the start of winter I’m taking some time to redo a couple things. My bike always pops out of gear so gonna sort the trans, but more importantly… do the suspension. […]
I feel old and boring. We used to do fun shit for halloween. Previous good memories: – 2009 ride Mick dressing up as mad max. Anna dressing like lady gaga riding around in lingerie. – 2010 ride Adam being a cowboy. I’m a black/white uniform prisoner. Got ticket around city hall. – 2011 ride John […]
