Can I remove the gas tank while it's relatively full of gas, or will it all drop out the bottom or some such thing?

For most bikes, the gas flow from the tank is controlled by a petcock located on the underside of the gas tank. Just turn it to the "OFF" position and you should be able to remove it without spilling any gas. Always, check your manual though, because some tanks have cross-overs that run under the frame down-tube or coils mounted to it.
Yes you can, the gas will stay in tank, there may be a fuel line that you need to clamp off but you will be fine. I take mine off everytime I change the spark plugs.

What's your workout?

No doubt this has been asked before, but since I'm new, I thought I'd toss it out anyway. I'm curious how others stay in shape, in part because I'm always looking for new things to try.I'm 53, 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds. I'd consider myself to be in decent shape. My typical workout is sort of CrossFit-esque, along with some fairly standard free-weight stuff (used to do "real" CrossFit a few years ago but stopped because of joint issues). I'd be interested in details of what others do. For…See More
