General Chatter / Seeking New Rider Advice
« on: October 14, 2021, 02:45:51 PM »
Hi everyone,

We have a new rider in the family - an 18-year-old guy - who will be getting his first bike this month. We're giving him my 2009 TU250X to get him started and comfortable. He's taken Georgia's weekend training course but doesn't have a ton of experience otherwise beyond riding an old CB around his grandfather's farm. He's been driving in suburban Atlanta since he was 16 and is good with a manual transmission.

If he were your kid, what sort of advice would you give him about riding safely? I recall a thread recently about keeping your bike in gear at stoplights in case you have to move fast. I guess it's that kind of thing I'm looking for.

Thanks!

General Chatter / Cleaning up battery acid damage

Hi all,

I'm working on cleaning up some acid-caused corrosion and rust on steel parts and am curious to know how others have approached this problem. Scrape, clean, and paint? POR-15?

Thanks,
Matt
