Thumbs up Some good/nice guys out there

Two years ago I bought some parts from Jesse Norton for my R3, during to and fro e-mails I mentioned about a BBK 305cc and cams I had done to a Honda CBR250R that my son blew. He forwarded my mail to Ari Henning who replied with good advise.

Now I am rebuilding the 250 with another 305cc kit and noticed that in Thailand/Indonesia larger injectors had been fitted. Going to the Honda dealers 110 miles away, they do not understand what I am wanting to do.

One e-mail to Ari, answered within 24 hours (I am Thailand, he in USA) gave injector advise.

Point I am making is that Jesse and Ari are not making money from me in fact I am getting their help and experience for free. Just thought this forum should know about guys that do good. Ari and Jesse

Awesome. All the more reason to try to financially support those who research and develop to improve our riding experiences.

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question! ... Anon

When given the chance, help someone the way you’ve been helped.

Good advice!

Thank you for explaining that.
I help a few of the local Thai guys with their bikes and brakes.
Take in rescued dogs, now at 6
Ice cream bike comes all the preschool children get ice lollies.

Does that count

Living in a Buddhist country and and my long suffering wife is also, I believe now in Karma.

Oh yes, That certainly counts. IMHO, societies in the rest of the world could greatly benefit by adhering to the teachings of Buddha. I'm no world history expert, but I can't recall any War ever being declared or fought in the name of Buddhism. Nor can I recall any other major religion that can say the same.

It is quite interesting when you read about Buddha and what he taught. In Christianity there are the 10 commandments which are pretty straight forward and still apply 2000 years later (Today).

Buddhism which predates Christianity has 5 tenets at its core, they are simple to understand and if followed is beneficial to all. You do not follow Buddha as a god, you are advised to read his teachings which are non-violent, caring and respectful.

Been invited to many ceremonies where the oldest son enters the temple. All the guys get pissed and all the young girls are dolled up to perfection for the dancing later. Never seen any fights, only blood is when the drunks fall over.

Now some guys only go for 1 week, some for 3 - 6 months. I am 64 and have had invites from some of the older monks, told at my age I do not have to kneel or sit cross legged... Okay I can do. Have tentatively agreed to stay for 1 month. But the 5 hours kip is not enough and not eating from the afternoon to sunrise would have me eating my shoes.

Sorry to have derailed the topic

What about the 'ethnic cleansing' of the Rohingya Muslims currently being carried out in Myanmar, a country where more than 90% of the country practices Buddhism..? I guess it probably hasn't been reported much in American media.
