Re: does anybody bike? (the pedal kind that is)

I was a regular bicycle commuter for years. 22 miles per day, Monday through Friday. Now I ride the train and read a few forums during the commute.

Re: I'm going to miss you all

There was a site called thehornetsnest or something similar. As well as wristtwister, but I think wristtwister was primarily a 919 site.

Re: Your opinions (and tips) on lane-splitting

I agree with everything “A” said concerning lane splitting and I’m coming from a Chicago perspective.

This happens on my ‘06 every so often.

When it does I usually put it in first, let the clutch out enough to engage, then try to put it in neutral again.
