http://piratesk12site.net/intro.htm  LOTS of parts & info for BMWs (and a cpl other bikes)

http://www.motorcyclegiant.com   discount gear vendor

http://www.bassproshop.com   Low(est?) prices on Frogg Toggs raingear

http://www.craigshelper.com.
  I find this very helpful for finding M/C (and other) stuff, vs. knowing that Craigslist listings expire after 45 days.

 H-D Ride planner any rider can use it.  Very cool of H-D.  Someone said it's better than S&T.  "Not only is the planning tool itself a hell of a lot intuitive, but there's a "GPS Synchronization" button, which makes it all perfect."


http://www.grouprider.com
 is this site similar to the HD site, kinda  you can download GPS route files others have submitted

http://www.sundaymorningrides.com/
  similar to grouprider...

http://www.wunderground.com/tripplanner/index.asp
Weather Underground has a pretty cool feature called the "Trip Planner" You type in a location along with a date range... and it will return average high and low temps for that location (and historical temp ranges), average daily precipitation, average cloud cover, average wind and humidity... and a table of historical weather stats.

Derby Cycles moves so many tires they get special pricing from the distributor and they pass it along to the customers.  Their retail price is cheaper than standard dealer cost.  
http://www.derbycycles.com/

To get the shipping cost of a (potential) order:
1.   Click “add to cart”   Repeat as needed
2.   Click “view/checkout”
3.   Click “complete order”
4.   Add your zip code only!
5.   Scroll way, way down,  Click “verify order”
6.   It will show you the shipping cost
It works.
I recently got a rear tire from them and shipping was $11.54

More internet retailers --
www.twowheelsteals.com -- the outlet for Motostrano.com.  Motostrano caters to the high end of niche markets (supermoto, specialty Duc products, etc.), but Twowheelsteals generally has good discounts.  I bought a pair of barkbusters for 30% off last year and a pair of A* gloves for 35% off this month when everyone else was sold out for a few months in the size/color I wanted.  NOTE: officially there are no exchanges/returns, but they refunded me for a chest protector that listed no size information but was size small.

www.dsrpowersports.com -- I've bought maybe four or five pieces of apparel from them in the past 3 or 4 years, including a pair of boots this month.  In my experience, very similar to NewEnough with some different and some same brands.  They regularly run coupons if you sign up for their e-mails.  They have excellent customer service, allow returns, etc.

www.swmototires.com -- I purchased my second pair of tires from them late last month.  The site changed owners, but the pricing and free shipping have continued.

www.helmetharbor.com -- Best internet pricing on new stock non-closeout helmets I have found.  They have extensive reviews (mostly on full face street helmets).  Bought my last helmet from them 4 years ago, so I'll be shopping again next year.  NOTE: they have a 20% or so re-stocking fee, so know your size before you buy.  The fee is spelled out several places and not hidden.

To be clear, the free shipping is on two tires.

LED resistor wizard for calculating resistors in LED circuits.
http://led.linear1.org/led.wiz

You enter the number of LED's and the availiable source voltage and the program calculates and designs the circuit for you. This site will draw the circuit of the calculation (select "wiring diagram").
It will also help with resistor color codes.

It might help to have the following data for when you don't have the actual specifications of your LED's:

For forward current you can use 20mA in most cases.

Color   Voltage (Volts)
IR    1.5
red   2.0
orange  2.0
yellow  2.1
green   2.2
true green  3.3
blue    3.3
white  3.3
UV      3.3
blue (430 nm)  4.6

Now you can know exactly how much different two tires sizes are!

Has a link to: Understanding metric sizes
Also includes a tire size finder (sorry, cars and trucks only)
