The economies in procedure have to be set around towards the initial expense. The Diesel motor ship is in many strategies a much cheaper provider compared to the steam boiler ship, that is a glutton for oil gasoline. It is worthy of note that bigger internal combustion oil ships are having the sea each and every month.
An oil transform is something that each car or truck operator needs to offer with at a person time or another. It may be a schedule celebration, however you could gain from understanding some points and heritage driving motor oil and also the inside combustion engine for which it had been made.

Love this dude's vlog. He seems like a neat/good guy. I love the vid of him scaring the kids with the Husky's exhaust, though haha If there's anything you could criticise him for it would be that he does take some serious liberties whilst filtering.
However that's not out of the ordinary for London. Meh, I won't blame him for that. I am sure he's not alone on that one, but he seems like a helpful guy when he can be helpful. He also checks out a lot of girls lol Lot worse stuff to be perpetually involved in when it comes to motorcycle riding...which I'd know nothing about... :} Nope. Neither do I officer. Whats a motorcycle? I believe it's a two wheeled contraption that hoodlums cause mischief on.
I'm 31-years-old. My dumb ass has run outta gas 3 times in my life. (Please deduct man-points NOW.) It is truly humiliating. 2 out of those 3 times, a random stranger has dismounted and helped me push. Running out of gas sucks. The a-holes that lean on their horn as they whip around you at excessive speed is insult to injury. I'm much more careful these days. I'm 30 and I've almost ran out once.
Ended up rolling into a decrepit station (I think it was a Sinclair) somewhere in Nebraska or Montana. The pump had those old flipping numbers and no way to pay with a card. The man behind the counter looked like he's never seen a VISA before. Scary stuff. But I gotta ask, is Red the fastest FZ-09 and if so, how fast? The speed limit. Oh, my bikes can do that too! One is yellow and one is black though? Hah, but I get to the speed limit really fast! Much faster than an orange bike.
I have an orange helmet but I don't think that slows me down. That said, it seems to make me wheelie across intersections from a red light. I can't track down the problem, but its happened on both bikes. :| But not faster that blurple Red goes faster; it's just science. So fast it turns blue! You get one free one for every different bike. After all, isn't knowing where it runs out part of the valuable bike knowledge? Except these new bikes, I thought I'd see how far past "0 miles remaining" on my GT .
.. nope, zero means zero ... rode past the station going up hill at "1 mile", coasted back down a minute later. I've run out of gas twice...once was on a rented scooter with a broken gas gauge and unknown starting amount of fuel. The second time I bought a used truck, went to pick it up (had to drop off the cadre in my car and hoof it back)--the guy wasn't there but I had the keys. I made it 2 blocks away and it fucking died on me.
Got gas from a dealership with expensive jags n' shit inside...me, wet, smelly, with a piece of shit 30 year old truck just purchased. Started out as embarrassing, but they had trouble finding a gas can so standing around for 20 minutes changed from embarrassing to mortifying. I ran out of gas once RIGHT as I was going down a hill... about to pass a gas station. The gods were on my side that day.
Last year I was going 1 mile to get gas on my SF848... it didnt make it. SF848's can go around 24 miles when the light comes on apparently. The absolute best mechanic I have ever met (seriously, this dude will drop an engine out of your car and teach you how to change parts for a 6 pack as long as you help. Hell, he Managed to beat the crankshaft of my bike back within specifications, and fabricate a custom bracket for my old mustang so the tie rods would clear the headers) had run out of gas at least 6-7 times that I can remember.
Never realized it before that he reduces the sound on the video when his bike is running. That is a loud bike I think he's got two different microphones, one for riding and one when he talks to people. [deleted] Yes that's it. I want to buy RJ a pint. I fantasize about saving the day like this. I've never once been put into a situation where I could help, though. I stopped to move a box out of the road before though, if that counts.
You're the man, Dan. My hero! I've had the fortune to do this for many people, tire changes, push to the side of the road, jump starts, help at an accident ect. It feels amazing. RJ's videos never disappoint, seems like a really nice guy. He did pick the right place to run out of petrol, he did it when Royal Jordanian was near! Cheers to this man. I always try to help out when someone is stranded, irregardless if I am pressed for time.
irregardless ಠ_ಠ It's surprising how many people think this is a word. I never knew it wasn't, until I looked it up a few seconds ago. I guess it's primarily an American thing. I helped push a broken down tercel out of an intersection yesterday morning. As I pushed it across a lane of traffic, the light turned green. The Audi in poll position on that lane drove up about 2 feet behind my legs and honked at me.
Audi drivers are dicks. Smart choice of bike. Class act. I helped a guy (a taxi driver nonetheless - should know better!) who had run out turning into the forecourt, so he was blocking two lanes of traffic. To make things worse the station was on an incline. We both couldn't manage it but luckily a police officer was filling up and came over to give us a hand :) I ran out of petrol yesterday as the bloody bike garage changed the fuel switch to reserve instead of primary, without telling me, so when i ran out---no reserve had to lug it around to the nearest garage, not one bugger helped me.
I broke down once, on the A4 in chiswick blocking a whole lane entering a very busy 3 lane dual carriageway. Was there for 45 minutes, in the end I had to flag down a pedestrian walking past as not one person stopped to help me push. Honestly, my favorite part of this video is that when he got back to his bike he made the left turn off of the sidewalk and circled around to get back into traffic.
He didn't just jump into the middle of the intersection and shoot across. Definitely a class-act guy! It really seems to me that being on a bike really lets you stay connected to the world around you. In a car, you are your are separate from the world. I think that connection makes (some) people far more likely to stop and help someone. There are other reasons too: Its far easier to roll the bike up onto the sidewalk and not just make traffic worse by helping someone out.
But by being fully enclosed in your own separate personal space, people tend to be far less willing to stop and help out. I know I've noticed this in myself. [deleted] Hes on a BMW S1000R sport. I bumped into him the other day when my VN started leaking fuel. He stopped by to help. Nice guy! Then you'll maybe be in the next Daily Observations? You never know! Was a couple of weeks ago now. His videos are probably on some serious lagg.
Our channel is due to be on the spotlight at the end of an up and coming Daily Observations but it'll take a while yet :P Pretty sure it's a BMW S1000Rs. Husky Nuda 900R That's his other bike, the one in the video is different. Ah, just looked again, that's the BMW dash. Sounded too deep to be the S1000R He's running an aftermarket akrapovic setup Love the look of the Nuda, sad to hear it'll never be coming to the US.
I would buy that bike in a heartbeat. As would I. So throaty. There aren't even any dealers within 150mi of me. I'm always afraid someone is going to jack my bike. [deleted] did he? I missed that part....yeah guess that would work. Next chance I get I will help out. Man, this guy is cool but how the fuck can he afford these bikes? Aaaaaah! Fuck! Ok, i'm calm now, good for him :) Reminds me of this https://www.
youtube.com/watch?v=YxNMUBwhkyE&feature=youtube_gdata_player This guys accent is cool :D The New Yorker in me expected to see his bike gone by the time he got back. Is this really just a video of a guy stopping to help someone push their car? Why would you post this on the Internet and why are all you people losing your minds over it? Whatever happened to just helping people and not expecting thanks and that being normal? We expect it to be normal, but man, just look the reality, a lot of people are dickheads.
So yes, we share this kind of things on the internet to show that being nice to each-other is better for everyone. because RJ As someone who lives in the northern USA, and is not used to having bikes go between cars like that, watching him do this scares me. I know it's legal in the UK, and California, but my safety conscious brain screams a little when I see people do this in their videos. I guess I'm just not used to it.
You'll like this then. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_I2YtZD9EBY How often are accidents or scratched paint on cars attributed to this? Just watching this gives me an adrenaline rush. Looks like it's a fine way to find yourself pinned between two vehicles that had no idea you were even there. Holy crap this guy is taking a lot of liberties. People who drive like this bug me. If I expect people to give me the same right of way and space as a car I'm going to give them the same level of respect.
If you thought that was bad.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XihQeZpwqpE Make sure you don't miss where he redefines filtering at ~4 mins in, onward. Aaaah, Russia. I think that's about all you really can say, isn't it.. The gap always looks smaller on film. This is standard filtering imo, helps get where you need to be. I'm fairly sure they can hear him ;) I would regard this as extreme filtering.
I filter every day yet I wouldn't go through a lot of the gaps he does in the vid. A big factor though is the location - London. In London people expect you to try and squeeze through and will make way for you. The reason he is constantly blipping the throttle isn't just for show - he's making the drivers aware he's there so they will give him room. In london if you don't filter through gaps you feel awkward because people look back at you waiting for you to go.
This is in contrast to elsewhere in the uk where there are fewer bikes, and people are sometimes surprised and even annoyed at peoples' (read: my) filtering. Regarding scratches, the first thing to hit for me is the wing mirrors. They knock on other people's wing mirrors, not causing any damage. Like cat's whiskers. You see him twisting the bars to get the mirrors through sometimes in the vid but he is almost stopped at these points.
In summary, filtering is great, but this guy is a pro for sure. The guy in this video is riding like an idiot. I filter ten miles to work and back, but don't ride anything like him. Way too fast, and taking gaps that are way too small. Also, if a bike is already on one side of a car, it's idiotic to try to squeeze past on the other side, as the car is likely to swing over to make room for the first bike.
Not saying I've NEVER ridden like that, when I lived in London and had a skinny little dirtbike, it was great fun. But still, he's risking a lot... It's now legal in the state of NSW in Australia (as of yesterday). I'm a motorcycle courier so I spent all day joyfully filtering through traffic. Had a huge grin on my face when I got to filter right past a police van :) Nice gesture, but I hate when people stop on top of a cross walk.
Given the circumstances and the fact anyone could just walk around his bike, why?! It was there for three minutes.. Because it's a crosswalk. It isn't part of the road. And why do you feel so entitled that everyone else should walk around your vehicle? And it doesn't take long until people start stopping in such a way where grandmas with walkers are unable to get to the ramps, which I have seen happen here in Brooklyn.
Like I said, nice gesture, but does it give you credit to then do something less than nice? You should never park there, but for the few minutes he was there it was perfectly reasonable. He was helping someone get a car out of the middle of the intersection, which was dangerous and blocking a lot of traffic. If you're talking about parking on the regular that's a different story.. for the few minutes he was there For the few minutes, the light would have cycled at least once, so I guess one can just stop across it whenever.
And we are oh so concerned about being rear-ended. But what if a car already in the crosswalk gets hit from behind? A pedestrian already is inches from you because they have to walk around you, so there's no buffer for your rear-ended car to move before you make contact with a person. There's a reason that (at least in the US) the line for you to stop at a light is a few feet before the actual crosswalk.
Edit: and to the people downvoting me, please review Reddit's recommendations on when posts should be downvoted. Jesus fuck, did you wake up on the wrong side of the bed today? He stopped in the median out of the way of the actual pedestrian traffic. Remind me never to stop and help push you out of traffic.
