Motorcycle.Com Instagram Contest

May 02, 2017 - 9:26 AM - by Motorcycle.com

In a previous era, the extent of social media was writing a letter to the editor or passing a magazine on to your buddy. Today there are numerous ways in which we can share our thoughts and experiences in real time over the internet. Youíve probably noticed near the top of each MO page are buttons to share the article on Facebook, Google+, and Twitter.

Today we are adding Instagram to the social media channels in which you can keep abreast of pretty much everything thatís going on at MO. To encourage you to follow us on Instagram, weíre going to give one lucky reader a $250 Amazon Gift Card!

All you have to do is post a picture of your motorcycle with the hashtag #MOMyRide (comment the make and model of your bike while youíre at it) and tag @motorcycle_com. Oh, and youíll need to follow @motorcycle_com and 'like' this picture.

The contest starts today, May 1 and ends May 15 at 5 p.m. EST. You must have a public Instagram profile to enter, and itís limited to U.S. and Canadian residents only. The winner will be notified via Direct Message and their motorcycle will be featured on our feed.

So, what are you waiting for? Enter now!

*This contest is in no way sponsored, administered, or associated with Instagram, Inc. By entering, entrants confirm that they are 18+ years of age, release Instagram of responsibility, and agree to Instagramís terms of use.

Whatís The Difference Between Rake And Trail?

Apr 28, 2017 - 8:56 AM - by Motorcycle.com

Dear MOby,

So is it the rake or the trail that determines how fast or slow a bike steers? Lot of things I read and hear seem to use the two interchangeably at random? Which is it?

Do I Really Have To Change My Oil Every Year?

Mar 01, 2017 - 2:38 PM - by Motorcycle.com

Dear MOby,

I just saw your answer regards oil change. My manual says that I need to change oil every 3000 miles. But I only ride about 1000 miles per year (very short commute). By the book, I need to perform oil change every three years. Do I really need to change oil every year? Is it okay to change oil every three years, just because I donít ride that much?

Thank you

PS: Just to make myself comfortable, I do oil change once a year.

When Will My Motorcycle Battery Die?

Feb 22, 2017 - 1:52 PM - by Motorcycle.com

It depends where the bike lives: Hot and cold climates are both harder on batteries than temperate climes, and bikes that get ridden regularly are easier on batteries than ones that sit for months Ė though a good battery tender with a float feature negates much of that. In fact, I was bragging about the Shorai lithium-iron battery in my bike not long ago, which must be seven years old now and has never seen a charger, when my friend Jim said big deal, the original equipment sealed AGM battery in his VFR lasted 9.5 years, and his 21-year old Ducati is only on its second battery. So, sealed batteries can last a long time especially if youíre OCD about maintenance.

According to several sources including BatteryStuff.com, though, your 12.3-volt reading means your battery may be on its way to Nirvana; a fully charged one should read 12.7 volts or above. Since you like to play with your voltmeter, there are instructions to ďstress testĒ your battery at the same page, along with a lot of other battery tidbits that will let you know for certain if itís time to replace.

Send your moto questions to AskMOAnything@motorcycle.com. If we donít know the answer, we know who does, and if they donít know weíll make up something reasonable-sounding. What do you want for free?
