Cooler in summer

Well, I bought the BILT cooling vest and an underarmor heat gear shirt today. Tomorrow I'm going to give them both a proper trial by wearing it to my motorcycle safety training class.

2006 Tank Vision 250e

Last night a friend rolled a 2006 Tank Vision 250e that had been sitting a few years into the shop and to my surprise the darn thing started right up with a jump. Miracle of all miracles!

I have to admit, its a good looking bike from afar, but it's got major problems. Not only did the company close leaving everyone who owns a Tank belly up too, it’s virtually impossible to find a service manual or parts for this thing.

Cheap? You bet, at $1499.00 Some places are still trying to make their money back from such a bad investment.

Alas, we see it all at our school, the good, the bad, and the Epic Fails.


ktm I’m at a stand still with the 1989 Virago until the owner brings in the Collar and the Countersunk Screw for the Starting Clutch.

In the meantime, I’m now disassembling a KTM 65 SX and let me tell you how small this mini is but it sure does pack a wallop! I’ve got the engine partially disassembled to check out the crankshaft. I’ll keep you posted as to what I find.

Oh, and have a safe and happy fourth!
