I have ridden a Piaggio three-wheeler (with two front wheels closed together and leans).  It was a hoot.

They are said to be popular in Europe in towns with lots of slippery cobbled streets.

It is regularly available, and some manufacturers even provide kits.  This is one of the things that made me curious.

I have never repacked a car or bike muffler, have never noticed an issue or change, have never seen hot spots on the muffler indicating a problem inside, etc.  Thus I am curious if this is a real world issue, only for the fussy, or limited to a racer's concern where sustained high RPM full throttle produces a difference environment and is hard on mufflers.

Bike Help / Repacking Mufflers?

This is prompted by wanting to learn, not by any issue.

When do motorcycle mufflers need to be repacked?  How do you know it is time?

Not off hand, but will happily direct anyone I learn of to take a look here.

A wonderfully fun bike.  I have a 1098S Streetfighter and love it.

It appears a number of us are in this position.

But, unfortunately, it appears both the forum and the Facebook page are very slow currently.

I'm not, being insufficiently social to be on social media.

But this explains why when I searched and found the Facebook page the few things I saw were ancient.  :)

It has been way too quiet here.

What is this Facebook of which you speak?  :)

Hi, John

I hope to make a ride or two when I can take a break from work. 

Keep letting us know when you are venturing out.

I wish I possessed your memory of roads.  I recognize them once I am there, but often have trouble recalling which are connected to which.

I like the Pirelli Angel GT a lot. 

But I have seen many recommendations for the Michelin Pilot Road 4 among BMW riders.

Of course he was not drafting the entire lap.  :)

And when qualifying times are so close that the first dozen or so places are within less than a second, an advantage of a tenth or even less is critical.  Keep in mind also that Vinales was conveniently in place for Rossi to draft multiple times during qualifying.

There is nothing wrong with what Rossi did; it is within the rules.

Regardless, it is unfortunate what happened during the race.
