We are building a motorcycle facts (http://www.riderinfo.com/motorcyclefacts.html) glossary. I have started but I need help.

Here's the offer. Come up with 5 motorcycle terms. For each term your need two defining lines and then a short paragraph about the item you chose. Look at the terms that are there for examples of the two defining terms and the paragraphs.

If the term is accepted, you will be credited for it, get 5 accepted and we'll give you a free one year RiderInfo Insider membership. That get's you in the back room and gives ya much more priveledges on RiderInfo.com.

Any submission that is accepted becomes the sole property of RiderInfo.com and we reserve the right to edit any submissions we accept for grammer and clarity.

Ideas for facts can be parts of a motorcycle, slang terms, riding jargon, pieces of gear. Collectively we should be able to think of at least dozens.

If you get stuck on a term use www.wikipedia.org www.google.com search.msn.com www.yahoo.com and any other search engine or encyclopedia you can think of to do the research. Just put it in your own words. No cut and pastes will be accepted. This is serious business, we will verify the the originality using publishing tools. Anyway enough of that, but we don't want to get in trouble.

We look forward to your submissions.

smeg,

Is this what you're looking for?


Jugs
Jugs for V-Twins would be the front and rear cylinders
Jugs are the containers for the pistons closed at the top with the cylinder heads.

Jugs would be referred to as, the front jug usually runs more cool than the rear jug by design. Since the rear jug cooling air flow is partially blocked by the front jug and it also receives some of that cooling air that's already picked up some of the heat removed from the front jug.

Yep.

After I got through the HTML for them, I found I could do each of the fact's details in about 15 minutes each. I hope that seems like a fair trade?

Counter Steering
Counter Steering is pushing on the right side handlebare to go right and on the left side to go left.
Counter Steering - the term comes about because you would think pushing on the right side handlebar would turn the front wheel left and that you would go left, but this is counter to that and therefore counter steering

How about straight email? Would that cut down on the time?

I think you get the idea. Just post the next 3 all at once. I'm sure I'll use them as is practically. Maybe I can even post um tonight.

Nice work.

Scavenging
Scavenging refers to the engine exhaust timing/tuning.
Scavenging in the exhaust occurs, in relation to backpressure, when there is not enough to keep the flow smooth. During those uneven times the lack of pressure causes the fuel/air mixture that's in the cylinder to be sucked/scavenged into the exhaust. Since it's ripe for detonation and the exhaust is already hot you get a POP.

Wheelie
Wheelie is when weight is shifted too far to the rear causing the front wheel to come off the ground.
Wheelies can be caused by simply shifting your weight to the back of the seat or sometimes even farther back and sometimes from the angle of climb on a hill. But usually these days with the high performance machines out there just from rolling on the throttle.

Stoppie
Stoppie is the opposite of wheelie. Weight shift forward in order to get the rear wheel off the ground.
Stoppie only requires enough braking on the front to shift the weight enough to get the rear wheel up.

How's that smeg?
