We were riding home from dinner on a local highway. My buddy was in the fast lane a car length or two behind me, and I was in the middle lane. We encountered some construction with uneven lanes, where they scrape the top layer of the road away. When he tried to transition into my lane behind me, his tires caught the uneven lane edge and he dumped his bike.
He's still in the hospital and might be
Took my FRS out to get it's Echeck at a self service kiosk. The machine couldn't read my ecu.
Now I'm concerned my tune is somehow interfering with the echeck system.
Looks like I'm going to have to take it to the actual echeck place during buisness hours and hope for the best.
What a mess. In Ohio, when a car turns 5 years old, you need to start getting emission tests every two years. My FRS needs to have its first e check. I wasn't expecting to need to get it echecked before I am able to renew my plates.
So when my birthday came around in November, I wasn't able to renew my plates because I needed an e check. But I couldn't get an echeck because my car was in
This stuff is cutting edge. A local guy I know is one of the only people in the world certified to use this stuff. It's a new paint technology that illuminates when electric current is applied.
His car which also serves as a selling tool and is a main example of the tech is breath taking.
I'd love to get some accents on my car using this stuff. haha.
I went to a motorcycle show yesterday and holy crap was there a huge turnout. I couldn't believe how many bikes showed up.
This last photo was the overflow lot!! The building in the back of the photo is where the first two photos were taken. So many bikes. haha.
I watched this video earlier today and was blown away with some of these ideas and wacky engines.
Hondas NR500 motorcycle that had an engine with oval cylinders and could rev up to 23k RPM is just absolutely nuts. lol.
What do you all think about these?
Engineering Explained made a video on this new engine concept called Reactivity Controlled Compression Ignition or RCCI. Basically it takes both gasoline and deisel and utilizes the best of both of those fuels to create extremely fuel efficient engines. I found this to be really interesting.
He explains how it works here:
You guys.... I think i'm in love....
I've always liked the Veloster but I had always felt like it wasn't enough with the 1.6L Turbo engine.
But oh my god is this thing sick.
Those pops.... omg.
275 HP six speed.
This is such a foreign concept to me. I always thought that it was absolutely necessary to use the clutch when shifting, but recently i've read a few articles and watched a few videos explaining how it isn't necessary for shifts above first gear, and even some downshifting.
Any other motorcycle riders out there familiar with this?
I passed this car on the highway yesterday after work. I saw it coming in my rear view mirror, and it made me realize something.
I cannot stand cars that are not symmetrical. Why would they put the double racing stripe offset like that? It just personally makes me OCD. lol.
Does that bother anyone else?
