Re: Have a question about breaks squeaking & sticking

Dan, thanks for the reply, that made good sense to me! What kind of oil should I be applying? A brake lubricant like a silicone or grease? I read about this in the manual and I will definitely check the shoes visually.. still good to know that the squeaking can be normal. It may very well just need ...

Have a question about breaks squeaking & sticking

Yesterday I was riding and I noticed that when I used my rear brake it squeaked, then when I used my fron break it also squeaked... so I kind of pumped them both... after that it felt like my floor brake (back break) was like stuck.. like even though I released the break it didn't quite kick in, it ...

Re: Pics of my scoot - Honda Elite 150cc... now with a trunk!

I put the trunk on my bike.. it's nice to have it. now if the weather will just cooperate maybe I can go for a ride! Also is a pic of a cup holder thing I bought at a car store that I have strapped to the front glove box.. little ghetto but works great! http://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g72/SageLady...

Re: The new 2009 Silver Wing Scooter from Honda!

Interesting comparisons Dan. I think it may have to do with the history of them? I can remember way back.. late 70's early 80's a lot of people had mopeds... I remember the ole pedal style things but, there were not a lot of scooters... maybe that's just where I come from but I had seen a lot of mop...

Re: Dan's BWS 125

Thanks for the info Dan, duh, it's a 125.. that went right over my head, haha. Yea a paint job is fun but not necessary... wait till the funds are better. That's a nice lengthy trip you have planned, should be great! I understand about the speed... I don't want a bike that is too fast yet not one th...

Re: Wanting to get a trunk...

Thanks Dan, it does match up pretty well.. of course it is not an exact match but I am fine with that. I had to make a spacer/riser for it to sit on because I couldn't open the lid as it was hitting the back of the rack. Hopefully I will get some pics up soon.

Re: Dan's BWS 125

Wow what an exciting new toy!! I like the red, the pepper one it's a little less orangy than the tomato one. How many CC's is this bike? It's beautiful! Candy apple red would be so sexy.. darn. What is the top speed in mph? Congratulations on this purchase, looks like you are in for some fun times! :P

Re: Wanting to get a trunk...

Wooot 8-) I got a trunk and I put it on my bike! When the weather allows I will take some pics of it.. I love it.. it is very roomy and was a good price! I bought it on ebay for $49.99 + $18.00 S&H. Here are the spec and some pics from the ebay seller: - Constructed of durable heavy-duty ABS - The o...

Re: The new 2009 Silver Wing Scooter from Honda!

Hi Dan , yes, I meant to say automatic trans. Thanks for the reply! I agree with you on the maxi scoots too.. a whole different purpose. Not sure if it is a USA/Canada thing but we here (at least most people I know) tend to call bikes such as yours and mine mopeds ... around here a scooter is more l...

Re: The new 2009 Silver Wing Scooter from Honda!

Well, thank you Dan, that helps some.. it's interesting that there isn't a definitive answer. I looked at that Silvering and in my estimation it was a motorcycle... I believe here in RI (Rhode Island) the "law" is that anything over 49cc's is considered a motorcycle and hence: you need to have a mot...

Re: The new 2009 Silver Wing Scooter from Honda!

Nice article Dan... I don't always understand all the techie stuff. That's a lot of storage... 2 full size helmets! I wonder how much it weighs... looks heavy to me. Going to ask a maybe stupid question but here goes, what is te difference between a scooter and a motorcycle? I thought it was the CC'...
