You probably have it set to avoid highways. Please se this link on how to set your avoidances.

Also check to see if its set to faster time or shorter distance. That makes a difference too.

How to adjust front derailleur on a shamano 050 ?

The front part is a bit tricky to change sprockets. I have a mountain bike with three sprockets, I also have difficulty with changing them. It all depends on the design of the changer. I am able to change from large sprocket all the way to the smaller but from the smaller sprocket to the second is okay but going into the third (large) sprocket is a real problem and no matter how hard an adjustment I've tried, it still doesn't want to go to the far end. Example, if it is in the smaller sprocket, it changes okay to the middle sprocket but it will not fully change in the larger sprocket because the cable doesn't fully push the changing bracket far enough to roll the chain on it. So, as with myself having same problem, I'd say, never buy a bicycle that doesn't change the front sprockets with ease. But while you have one of these three front sprocket bicycle, you have two options. Try and put the bicycle on a stand and adjust the changer's screws so that it can reach the far end where the large sprocket is, or in another case -where the smaller sprocket is, depending where your problem lies, the larger or the smaller sprocket). Remember that the air test is different to the road test. On the air test (bicycle on stand) the changer may be able to change sprockets but on the road the chain is heavily under tension and may not over-jump into the larger sprocket, but down-jumps into a mid or smaller sprocket quite easily. So, the best thing you can do is to not to apply force to the pedals to relieve the chain of any tension so that it can jump over the larger sprocket. But apply tension to the chain, such as 'accelerating', and it will not over-jump the larger sprocket with ease. However, if you change down to a smaller sprocket while 'accelerating', it usually changes without problems. The other option you can use is to sent the bicycle to a store and have it fixed there. Work is guaranteed and you can be sure your worries will be over.

Safety Tip

Always Ride With Traffic<br />The number-one killer of American bicyclists is riding against traffic (riding on the left side of the road). This is a killer because drivers entering roads rarely check to their right when pulling out. They assume it's clear because they know cars don't come from that direction. So cyclists riding there have no chance. Why do cyclists make this deadly mistake? Sadly, it's because parents teach them to. Why? Because they've got their safety rules confused. They're applying the adage to always walk facing traffic (a good rule) to bicycling-a lethal mistake.

Why it shuts down while driving

Usually if you are having problems with intermittent and impossible to diagnose "shuts down while driving" issues on a D-series Honda, it's a bad distributor. Heat and vibration usually cause one of the three sensors in the distributor (top dead center, cylinder position, #1 top dead center) to intermittently fail. About 90% of the time, this is the problem.

It is such a prevalent problem I used to always keep a spare "dizzy" in the trunk to bail out my fellow Honda nuts when they ended up dead on the side of the road.

I'm just looking to see if it possible to use an

Sure! It is always possible for one vehicle to jump-start another vehicle. However, EXTREME CAUTION should be used and jump starting techniques should be followed carefully. Otherwise severe vehicle damage can occur. Here is the way to do it:

1. Connect the jumper cables to the good vehicle. (the one that is doing the jumping)
Make absolutely certain that he RED cable is connected to the POSITIVE battery post (the larger post on all top-terminal batteries, also marked with a "+") The BLACK cable then connects to the NEGATIVE battery post (smaller post marked with a "-").

2. Connect the other RED cable end to the POSITIVE post on the "dead" vehicle
3. Connect the other BLACK cable end to a metal part of the engine AWAY from the battery. (This is for safety to prevent sparking or arcing from causing the battery to explode.)
4. Run the engine on the good vehicle for 3 or 4 minutes to allow the dead battery to partially charge. (skiping this step can cause your charging system to overload and can cause damage to your vehicle including burning the alternator up.)
5. Attempt to start the dead vehicle. If is starts right up, then there is no problem. If it does not start immediately, I recommend getting some professional help with the situation because there is a problem that could possibly damage your vehicle if you continue to try to jump the dead vehicle.

Hit a bump in the road , speedometer , tact ,went dead

Wonder about your stoplight, taillight? Most of that stuff runs off the accessories fuse. Check that fuse to see if it is blown. If it is, replace it and see what happens. If it blows immediatly, you've got a dead short somewhere. If it stays there, you may have an intermittent short. The intermittant short is a bear to find because it's tough to fix a problem when it ain't there. Electrical problems are always difficult and this about the best information I can give you. It's a starting point.

Good Luck

Attempted to start my 1996 road king over the weekend and it turned over but wouldnt start then after several attempts the engine light started blinking. i turned it off back on truied to stat again same...

Hi Lance60, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections especially the negative cable at "BOTH" ends
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.
