Speeding/red light cameras

For the unaware..watch out for speed cameras in muscatine iowa. I recieved 2 speeding tickets in the mail from muscatine police department from 2 seperate cameras. Both cameras were on park avenue east of highway 61.

Re: FJ-09

You will absolutely love that inline 3 cylinder engine! After riding 1-4 cylinder bikes, 3 cylinders is awesome on the street! Go to youtube.com and type in fz09 0-60 mph acceleration and watch a few vids. Speaks for itself. I still cant stop laughing leaving stop signs. Have fun!

Re: why people don't "see" motorcycles

Expecting every cager to be on a cell phone and possibly handicapped will help significantly.

Re: What did you do to your bike today?

Plugged battery tender into fz09 and told er it wont be long. Hopped on xt250 and road to work at real feel of 16 degrees! Nice and calm. Actually wore tennis shoes to see how well merino wool socks work. They're awesome!

Re: Winter Riding

I commute all winter on 2013 xt250 enduro as long as theres no ice on the road. Just wear snowmobile clothes. Funny watching cold people trying to hurry to get back in their cages and saying how cold it is! Im warm the whole time lol!!

Re: Best local shop for suspension work?

I had a 2015 yamaha fz09 dyno tuned and ecu flashed by matt drucker at md racing in moline il. He seemed knowledgeable and bike runs great! His website definitely mentioned he has done suspension work for a number of years. Tried googling info on mid-west sportbikes in galesburg il. Not finding much...
