  3. Casinos have a system where you can be banned if you have a gambling problem. I wonder if there is something similar for motorcycle dealers.

  4. Day 3 We ran a version of Tonik’s route today. We had a little bit of rain, but nothing too serious. Definitely beat on the Concours today and made a CBR style run on the skyway once we hit dry pavement. Definitely the best day of the trip, 437miles.

  6. Hello to all the guys and snot Long time no see, I did not make a guess bike thread but still tonic manages to skewer me some how haha. Quite obvious from the age of this thread busa has been a life long dream of mine. Something weird about Indians overall I guess, we like MJ, hayabusa and Arnold ‘sausenager’ , from very young age always liked the busa and finally pulled the trigger to get one once it came packed with safety net electronics. stylistically, statistically, economically, common sense wise this bike doesn’t make any sense at all for me and my type of riding. But May be exactly the antidote I need to behave as I don’t like straight line speed and enjoy faster cornering. Busa is build opposite to that. But I look at it as a lesser weight gold wing for my size, hefty long low plush suspension wind protection, low rpm highway mile munching, less comfortable but can be tweaked and not as horrible as a cruiser in handling. The weird irony of this is buying one fo the most powerful heavy bike to go slow is hard to explain, esp to ones wife. Don’t know I been seeing a lot of 🤦🏽‍♂️ When I talk about it lately haha this bike I will be keeping for long time since I bought new, full msrp and fluff fees and what not always bought gently used bikes and sold without much financial hit, this one I have to keep it… good thing I am loving it so far. @durk it was not me there, wish I could have made it to say hi to you. Next week if opportunities arise I might try to swing by dragon area and meet @Blitz @2talltim just have to get this bike to turn enough to get there in one piece 🤣 hopefully get to meet you all some day some where. May be in august I am trying to see if I can swing by Ohio one weekend for a ride. My be we can do an epic ride with all 15 or so remaining active members quintessential pictures. You guys know I love to take pictures and share.

  7. This is a short trip. Boonville MO, where we are, is as far as we are going. Seeing the baby Budweiser Clydesdales in the morning. Then cross country back to Cleveland hitting some Frank Lloyd Wright houses and a wolf rescue place. Home Sunday.

  8. Let’s just say the experiment failed, this thing is harder to ride the tight stuff but way more rewarding. Overall the tendency to attack corners and all goes away but still this bike hides it heft and speed. so I made the gap trip, all back roads one day up one day down. Wanted to meet @Blitz but timing didn’t work out. Next time any of you guys making a gap trip let me know may be I can try and meet up.

  9. I was getting it on my 3rd straight rotor when I found one of my caliper bolts was bent.(by the PO, fork end had scratches too) Seems like that would be a constant grind but that was the last thing that finally fixed it. More of a frequency than alignment thing }shrug{ Also not a bad idea

  10. I rode to MVNU to see my wife and daughter at a district choir camp. I always wanted to ride my bike to college but never did due to the inconvenience. 22 years later I made it happen. Better late than never.

  15. Busted out of Hocking Hills at 9am in a NE direction on curvy back roads with little traffic. Slipped under New Lexington on secondary roads while turning more north passing Crooksville and Roseville turning up to the river crossing at Philo then thru Chandlersville to our coffee stop in New Concord (Chapmans Coffee). Fueled up and headed south on 83 picking up 313 east around Senecaville Lake to 800 south thru Woodsfield jumping on 255 to our lunch spot in Sardis, Marv’s place. To our surprise it was closed. The man living next door stated that they closed last week, unable to find workers. So hungry and disappointed we jammed down the shoreline to FLY, (Riverview Diner) Lunch sucked but we were at the Ferry so across the river into Sisterville for a trip back north to the bridge at New Martinsville/Hannibal. After crossing back into Ohio we jumped on 536 to 78 and Blasted 78 home to the HOCK. Just under 300miles for the day of great asphalt roads and very little traffic.

  18. What do you do when you wake up in the morning and can hardly walk because your back is so jacked? When you do walk your totally out of alignment and all crooked. You throw your leg over your chiropractic CBR and ride it for 525 miles and you start to feel better 😋. Your results may vary from mine. What a difference between the CBR and Concours. I had to adjust my throttle inputs today. I can kind of ham fist the Concours and not upset much of anything. The CBR needs much smoother inputs.

  19. You want to add to that route and have some twisty road fun. Take 541 to the other side (west)of Coshocton, then grab 60 north all the way to Killbuck, do a little zigzag over to 520, take 520 to 514, 514 to Danville, 62 to 36, 36 to MTV. You can thank me later.

  24. I'm on a family vacation, which means I'm riding pretty much every dry day. I'm staying just south of Logan Ohio. It's a great jumping off point to hit a lot of great roads and I would love to have some company. If you want to meet up somewhere and ride let me know and we can plan something. @B-Mac@Rick 59 @FatWilbur @durk @Pauly @Gpaw

  30. They build it shite from the factory. You need to extend the swingarm to corner at top speed. Can't steer with the front off the ground.

  31. Did my first track day this weekend at Pittrace and am now thoroughly hooked. Met a lot of great people and got a ton of good advice. Tim, sorry I didn't get a chance to work with you, but I got a lot of great coaching from some of your colleagues. Already signed up for Nelson Ledges on 7/31-8/1 and can't wait!

  37. Parked for the day. Interesting day. Passed two casinos and Deb did not make me stop. Then there was the nekkid girl walking against traffic on 70 west of St Louis. No pics but she was very good looking. Clearly in distress, I called 911 from the bike.

  39. We took 22 out Somerset to 664 south. Took that to Big pine road just south of Logan. This dumped us onto 374 to 180 into laurelville. Took 327 south out of town to 671 to 50 west back to 327 to 788 into Jackson. Had lunch there at Bob Evans. Took 124 out of town to wilkesville to 160 to 689 to 32 east to 143 to 50 west to 356 north (this road is covered with tar snakes) to 56 to 278 into Nelsonville. We took 33 west and @FatWilbursplit and took 93 back north. Overall the raids were great and a lot of fun. Really nice to ride done new roads for a change of pace.
