Over the weekend, I happened to be laying on the couch watching old Bond movies when I should have been cleaning the swimming pool. I came across ‘For Your Eyes Only’, and found just about the best motorcycle chase scene I’ve ever seen! Bond (Roger Moore), on skis, is trying to escape from assassins at a European ski area. This includes being chased down a bobsled run by dual bad guys on Yamaha XT dual sports with studded snow tires. There is also another ski based bad guy with a rifle. Make sure you see the end, where he’s pissed off and picks up and throws the wrecked motorcycle (along with his rifle) at the escaping Bond. Pretty rad huh!? Got any other cool motorcycle chase scenes I might’ve missed?

Episode 17: Valve Adjustments
Let’s talk about valves. Well, listen to the start of the episode…not valves exactly, but valve adjustments! This is a critical maintenance item that often gets overlooked or put off, because you don’t know how to do it. To a newer rider/home mechanic, valves and valve adjustments can often seem like black magic. However, it just takes a little bit of understanding how the system works, and why they need adjustment to get up the courage to attack this job yourself. Make sure to listen all the way through, and refer to this post for the examples we mention. I’ll post all our notes from the episode, so you can easily follow along.
