I love cheap tricks, does anyone have any ?

1. Silicone sealant inside the handlebars to reduce handlebar vibration.
2. Run out of gas, point your scooter downhill and lean it to the left, may be just enough to get you there. ( does not work for VROD )
3. Got there but station closed, open the nozzles in all the pumps and drain into your gas tank.
4. Solid wheels and a wobble behind semi’s, tighten up the steering bearings to maximum fall away distance.
5. Light load around town, reduce tire psi by 2 lbs to improve ride quality.

Please add to this list.

Shift gears upwards without using the clutch to save the wear on the discs. (some say it even works shifting down. But only in wet conditions)

Carry an extra helmet to parties so you don't have to miss a chance to give a cutie a "ride" home because you don't have a helmet when there are cops all over the place checking bikers.

Wire up a cigarette lighter plug under your seat to recharge a cell phone in a pinch.

Slide some folded newsparer down the front of your pant legs if caught out later than expected without your chaps on an unexpectedly cold night.

Slide some cotton down the front of your pants to impress the cuties. (only do this if you have the helmet so they can ride)

I thought that went without saying....in the US we use a rolled up sock.

I was in Canada at the time........they impound the bike and deport you to France....unless of course you are French in which case they shoot you.

Use a combanation lock to lock your ride when going out for a night at the bar&grill. If your too drunk to unlock the lock(or remember the combo) your too drunk to ride.

Kags, that's a good one, also, a thin cable lock works well to lock up helmets when you go to the casinos to lose money, if you wear a skid lid.

If you are a premium fuel only person, never fill up at a station with only one nozzle for three types of fuel. Unless you don't mind getting a quarter gallon of whatever the guy before you bought.

Damn, 45 yrs. old and never even thought of that.... Sad part is it's almost impossible to find stations that aren't setup that way.

This thread title is misleading. I was expecting photos of prostitutes.

I suppose the stations would get mad if you drain the gas on the ground next to some idiot smoking. I ride 20 miles one way to get real gas 93 octane (we have reformulated gas in this county). and they have seperate hoses, it seems like they are all switching to one hose. Wear a bandana or one of those stretch socks to cover your grey hair lol. ride save rickpoco
