    Suggestion To Make This A Better Place (forum)

    Can we create a "Tips & Tricks" section or something?
    In the interest of promoting good content and not just waiting for the next clueless hipster to walk in to punch him in the dick.......I thought a section with top tech tips.

    I know I have a few, and I am sure others have some too.

    Might be nice to have a place to compile those types of threads.
    Everything from how to best get a tire off, to rust removal, or simple mods that offer big improvements.
    Side note, if the word "hack" is used to talk about these treads my head will explode.....

    Definitely no "bike hacks" or "life hacks". I physically twitch every time I hear the phrase "life hack". Its like a John Tesh PTSD moment or something.
    Bike:
    Buell X1
    Honda S90 (box of parts)
    Honda CB750C (runs)
    The Others (mostly rolling wounded)

    Hack, Bae, Whip

    I want them all removed from the urban dictionary immediately. Can anyone think of others?

    Yeah the whole "life hack" thing drives me crazy.
    But I would like a section to post some good ideas, simple swaps and tech tips though.

    What is a "life hack"? I understand computer hack, but to me hack means to cut something up, like Hack thru the jungle with a machete, or hack up a frame with a Hack Saw....

    Yeah, I'm getting old. Will be eligible for super masters class in 11 days.

    A "life hack" is something like using a file clip to keep wires in order on a desk.
    Or attaching lids to the wall so that the jars can be used to store bolts.
    Stupid.
    Just simple things that are used in a manor not originally intended.
    It has been very over used by hipster home makers.

    A "hack" has come to replace the word "trick" (as in tips and tricks) in the vernacular because trick is an old people's word and hack makes the user sound young and edgy. They both functionally mean "shortcut".

    There is this monthly thread for mods and fabs too : https://www.caferacer.net/forum/ichib...ber-014-a.html

    With one day to go in December, we only have a bae pie , a spring compressor, a whip distributor and a cigar box musical hack in the running
