Pretty nice little Saturday. Took some pics of babes on bikes (photos coming soon), took a ride, got some work done, and went out for Teriyaki bowls with our ol pal Josh.
Ever had a clutch that's stuck and wont disengage? Such is the case with my newly acquired 1971 Triumph Bonneville. Here's something to try before taking the hard road and opening up the primary cover and taking apart the clutch plates.
Put the bike on the center stand, or if you don't have a center stand, you can do this while riding, but be careful, you don't want to break bones in the process. Get the bike going in second gear, then click it into third (no clutch just shift when the RPMs are right). Then pull the clutch lever and jam on the rear brake. This should theoretically free up the stuck clutch plates. If not, then you gotta open it up, but at least you tried.
Yes, they did it.... Easy Rider 2- The Ride Back! Probably gonna be the worst movie on the face of the planet, but it can't be any worse than all of the other crap they put out these days.
Highly recommended. The ultimate ride. 101 4th St. (Metron 2nd floor) Friday and Saturday nights, 9:00 pm. Also shown in Los Angeles.
