Dirt Bikes

KTM Honda Yamaha agree to make universal batteries for electric motorcycles
Why are dirt/dualsport bikes more expensive than street bikes?
OK, I'm generalizing a bit here but why can I buy a Husky Svartpilen 401 for over a $1000 less than a small-bore dualsport bike (i.e. DR-Z400)? What components make the off-road capable bikes so much more expensive or are the manufacturers just jacking up the prices because they can? 
PITSTER pro lxr190
I recently purchased a 2018 Pitster pro lxr 190. After a little bit of trial and error I got the thing going. First let me tell you some of the issues I had. I received the bike in a crate shipped to my house. I got the thing out of the box and started putting it together. I instantly noticed that the front wheel wouldn’t allign with the front brake caliper. After further review I noticed that the pads were binding up inside the slots keeping the caliper from moving all the way in. Not a big dea


Degenerative Disk Disease
I am 34 and have been diagnosed with it.  Who has it?  Do you still ride?  What in the HELL can make it feel better on my lower back?  I have had sciatica once.  The shot fixed my herniated disk back in 2015.  Now, I have DDD.  I still jump rope, and ride a stationary bike, and I actually feel pretty good.  But, bending over working outdoors picking things up, yeah different story.  Heavy lifting, not so much.  I use my core when I am biking.  I use my core to lift.  I don't bend at the waist. 
Any diabetics? Riding with a Libre or Dexcom?
I just started using a Freestyle Libre and it handled my first ride. I was just wondering if anyone uses this or the Dexcom and if they have ever had any issues with it coming off, etc. I ride with it on the back of my left arm and my Klim vest didn't get in the way. But... just wondering if anyone else out there is using a CGM for singletrack/trail riding. 
Anyone up for a ride today?
I’m in socal near a city called Redlands, anyone up for a ride?

"Internet connection lost"
Android, Samsung S9.  Good signal from tower. Of all the sites I visit, TT is the only one that constantly loses connection, "internet connection lost." I am no technology wizard.  Is my phone the problem?  Is there something I need to do in "Settings?" Thank you! Edit:  This only seems to happen when I use my "back" button.
