  1. Sounds like paleo meets Icelandic, so check out this Beta 300 set up with ice spikes shredding the Northern White Wasteland...........................

  3. I did vegan eating (still wore leathers) back in the early '90's Got down to 155. Looked like I was on tour with The Red Hot Chili Peppers. You could see every fiber of muscle in my body. I was 170 prior. Key thing(s) with vegan is make sure to supplement B12 and get plenty of resistant starches.* My body does well with meat and dairy, but my wife's migraines (corn allergy) means we now get only pastured meat and dairy. Corn is bad for us, bad for animals and bad for gasoline. My allergy is wheat, part of why I did so well eating vegan. Corn and wheat are in EVERYTHING!!!!!! I quit wheat about five years ago after reading Dr William Davis Wheatbelly. https://www.wheatbelly.com/ But, back to Beta Motorcycles. One of my inspirational people is Cody Webb. At 185lbs at 6'3", he is a true endurance athlete. Let's take a look at his championship Beta 300RE. * What Happens When I Eat Resistant Starch?When you consume a resistant starch, like a boiled-and-cooled sweet potato, it passes through your stomach and small intestine mostly intact. By the time it reaches your colon, the starch is fermented and it feeds your gut bacteria.What happens next is pretty neat: The trillions of bacteria (that make up about 90% of our bodies) begin to break down resistant starch and and produce short-chain fatty acids, including the superfood of the colon – butyrate.Boosting levels of butyrate promotes cell health in the colon, reduces inflammation, and decreases your risk for colon cancer. Plus, the excess short-chain fatty acids are dumped into the bloodstream where studies show that it can increase insulin sensitivity (4). http://fatburningman.com/how-to-lose-fat-and-curb-hunger-with-resistant-starch/
  4. Ya, I get it. I should have included it took me 14 years................. 224 in 2004 211 in 2005 200 in 2009 182 in 2011 204 in 2016 180 in early 2018 172 in October My go-to guy for nutrition and fitness info is Hawaiian Triathlon competitor Mark Sisson https://www.marksdailyapple.com/ Barry Sears Enter the Zone got me started questioning why when you follow the FDA recommendations, you fail. My quest has always been; if my body is nourished, it should cease to feel hungry. https://www.amazon.com/Enter-Zone-Dietary-Road-map/dp/0060391502 Like anything, when you're doing it right, it's easy.................
  5. If ya need help, let me know. I've lost 50, but I think I found four during Thanksgiving.

    No kidding! Didn't matter what you had, you were just happy to have something. So much history being made. So much dynamic change to make bikes what they are today. Japan sold bikes because they made them affordable. Now China sells bikes because they can make them reliable. Heck, India makes motorcycles.

    Don't use any item that contains aluminum oxide on any engine part you won't run through a dishwasher when you're done. the chance of ANY aluminum oxide remaining in the engine is too big of a risk to take. https://caddyinfo.ipbhost.com/topic/49945-never-use-scotchbrite-around-engines/ Back to the carbon; running Marvel in your fuel will eliminate carbon buildup and keep it gone.

    Setting up Rear Blinkers as Running lights too? Help? Advice?

    I run a unit on my Harley that does what the OP wanted. it is a common thing in the electrical world and it is called a diode bridge. You can buy one, or make your own. mine was plug and play, making it worth the 'Genuine H-D' price tag. Yes, I did need to change the amber lenses out for red, because rear running lights must be red. I believe this is a DOT requirement. I do not believe that there is any DOT requirement that rear turn indicators must be amber. If you paid a ticket for red turn signals without doing any research, well........................ There are also units that plug right into the flasher, accommodate diode indicators, and have a timed shutoff, along with the running lights.
  9. Two posts and you're already 'fallin' in line'
  10. You mean the KTM weighing the same as an MX bike? In all seriousness, check the author. Just because one white guy living in a trailer gets drunk and beats his wife, doesn't mean all white guys who live in trailers beat their wives. (Besides, she wanted it anyway. ) BUT, back on topic. Stock to stock, the 480RE cleans the clock of the KTM 500. Said KTM has since received the $1k treatment and now runs with the best of them. Not sure how we will get the extra 40lbs off.

    High school buddy had a t-shirt that said, "If you don't like my driving, stay off the sidewalks". If KTM riders get offended about what people say about their bikes, stay out of the Beta forum!

    1) Indeed. I am an 'anti-troll' Troll. If you've watched Enemy at the Gate, you know what I am saying. 2) Not always, but some posts do give me hope.
  13. Thanks for the warning; my bike also has the white stuff brimming near the headset, etc.

    Additionally, the film barrier additives in your oil aren't active until the motor warms up.

    Definitely don't run a leaky one.
