    Good news, not too late at all. Would be next Monday I would be going. Hot Chicken Takeover has been my latest obsession since it came to CLE a little while back otherwise that would have been the go to since Nashville style hot chicken has been a go to order anywhere I go that has it since I discovered it a few years ago

    Stop. Please don’t turn this into a discussion about how our bike felt in the hands of other forum members. It’ll get ugly fast lol

    Alpinestars SuperTech R Cal Crutchlow Boots

    If anyone can attest, qualitatively, to the protectiveness of Alpinestars’ Supertech R Boots, it’s Cal Crash … er, Crutchlow. The British rider, aside from being one of the fastest humans on two wheels, certainly wouldn’t short himself on looking after his feet and, fortunately, has sustained little, if any injury, while wearing these boots in one of his many get-offs over the last few seasons. This top-of-the-line riding boot not only offers CE-certified protection, but also – supreme comfort thanks to its two part design that utilizes an inner bootie, mainly for rigidity, and an outer shell for abrasion and impact resistance. Built using a combination of fiberglass-reinforced polyamide hinges set on the outside of a breathable mesh lining, the internal bio-mechanical ankle brace works with the outer structure of the allows free movement of the foot, on or off the bike. The double-hinged inner and outer torsion bars give greater impact protection to the ankle by progressively absorbing flex and rotation stress, reducing pressure and hyper-extension injury to the lower leg joints in the event of a hard hit to the ground. You simply put this on before slipping your foot into the boot. The outer shell employs shields of TPU material on the shin and heel. These ergonomically-shaped parts wrap around to outer calf and heel to dissipate impact energy across a larger part of the boot, and the foot within, these mitigate the force of impact when everything goes wrong. Ventilated swatches of Alpinestars-formulated microfiber cover the spaces in between and, at the toe-end of things, are capped off by a set of replaceable TPU/Aluminium toe sliders. These sliders use an easy screw fixing scheme that protects the outer toe box structure from abrasion. Take advantage of expert sizing advice by giving Mike a call on 866.931.6644 ext 818. Or, just send a note to forum@ridersdiscount.com with ALPINESTARS SUPERTECH CRUTCHLOW BOOTS in the subject line and we’ll get back to you right away.

    There is longish offroad trail in Ohio called the TOT. That's where @theroamr and I started to develop some basic off road skills. It's not very challenging (except for 1 or 2 sections), and you "probably" won't drop your bike 😄

    I will offroad this bike, eventually. My main reason for buying it was three-fold: 1. The Whale is boring. 2. The GS is not. 3. I can almost afford it.

    Keep an eye on the weather if you attempt the KAT. There are some low areas that are prone to flooding. The water can get too deep to pass very quickly. In some sections, if the clay/mud gets too wet you won't be able to get enough traction to ride up the inclines. We had a GS1200, Triumph Tiger, GS800, and my CB500x all get stuck on the same hill. We had to back the bikes down the hill in defeat. And that was only after about 20 minutes of moderate rain. The KAT is the most challenging thing I've attempted on 2 wheels. I'd do it again, but only if there was no rain in the forecast 😄 edit...I had the least off road experience in our group. Even the guys that rode the KAT before struggled in the wet. Every bike went down at least once after it rain started.

    You say redundant like it is a bad thing? I already dropped it. Had to call in for reinforcements to get it back up. Then I watched a YouTube video and realized I was lifting it wrong. Live and learn.
  14. Charlotte, NC. 2 hours to the beach. 2 hours to the Mountains. Perfection! Still have seasons but not as dramatic (aka long winters) as Cleveland.

    @TimTheAzn doesnt get it....the only way to ADV is with a full set of lockable Aluminum Panniers, loaded with every conceivable camping convenience and a tool kit to rebuild everything on the bike except the part that will actually fail. 😂

    And those that know usually just say "GSA", the rest of the description is redundant 🤣 My coworker who rides a GSA thinks the same thing...until he was asking for help picking it up

    Everyone knows the 2018 BMW R1200 GS Adventure is the only bike capable of such feats.

    I would not add any of the luggage. Didn't think I was going to have to add that, but here we are.

    After his mods and luggage Dan's DR650 is not really light anymore. Maybe lighter than a GSA but that is not saying much I'm hoping to do the KAT next summer but will be riding a DRZ400, I do plan on riding the "hard" sections, so there is that.

    You're also a terrible person.

    It's too late now but Belgian waffle stand chicken and waffles are THE SHIT. Yes use the hotsauce and the syrup. Youre a terrible person.

    Best Brewery in Cbus?

    Same, and I've lived here for 8 years. North Market isn't bad, but it's pretty much a fancy food court. Hot Chicken Takeover on the 2nd floor is the current popular spot in there. Also, if you're downtown, Barley's is decent: http://www.barleysbrewing.com/ Their sour kraut balls and white creamy sauce are the stuff of tonik's dreams.

    Damn striking out so far. All the ones mentioned are closed or open later in the afternoon. Might have to stick to one of my usuals or see what the North Market is all about. May be hard to turn down Thurman’s

    Sounds kinda fun. I'd probably want something more like what Danimal is riding for those kinds of trails. Lighter
