    There isn't a mountain face large enough for my list. I appreciate every one of you for your unique and individual spirit. I miss a lot of people I used to have in my life. Some are gone forever and some just on another path. So have a pint of your favorite beverage in memory of the ones that made it to their destination and raise a glass to the rest of us still finding our way home. Life is a funny little thing. Sometimes not so good. Most times not so bad. I hope to catch up with you crazy nerds sometime this season. Also, everyone knows @Isaac's Papa was the GOAT.

    Fellow Gearheads ... wanted to share the results of a local painter who TimtheAzn recommended ... Dave P did an absolutely killer job on the 1199 ... she's a proper bitch now. The old rattler can black was, umm, a bit lacking. The nephews and nieces thought black it was uber cool ... not so much me .... Dave got it exactly right! PM me or TimtheAzn for contact info for Dave P. Before/After Track crack is only a few months away .....

    You have not lived until you have gone up 380 and 218 from Iowa City to Albert Lea with a 45 mph gusting crosswind. It's about 200 miles.

    Wear a hat. Head tats are painful. You are stuck with the color in to your golden years. Dark hair on older men make them look even older. Microblading might be something to look into, it last a few years but is meant for eyebrows. If you are single, just say no.

    Here is a video I took from Nelson last August with Ricky O'Hare, Vasily Zhulin and Stefano Mesa. Mesa and Zhulin pulled away pretty easily but you can see Ricky for a bit before the tow was lost. Bike placement is very important here to open the radius of the turns and carry your corner speed.

    All Goldwings are old man's bikes. No 20 year old rider wants to buy a Wing. However, the Wings are faster and more nimble than most people think. Even the last generation gl1800s. Pauly's post on the gl1800 site about the prices for the leftover 2018 gl1800s had me thinking really hard about picking one up. I'll get one in a few years. Right now my daughters love the old man's version of the old man's bike. Here is a photo of an old man with a preteen daughter on the Tail of the Dragon that chased down some sport bike riders. What you don't see in the photo is the other 2 sport bike riders that were passed to get to this group.

    Lat Saturday (2/13/21) I test rode a Zero SR/F motorcycle and this is my review. I rode by myself to Buckingham, Florida. The ergonomics are very similar to my 2017 Yamaha FZ10, the seat height is lower. Turn the key on, flip the power switch as we do our ICE bikes. Here is the difference, turn the twist grip and go. Even in an automatic transmission car you have to shift into drive. Immediate torque and acceleration, it really has power and speed. This is very fast bike! The bike is like EV cars, extremely smooth. Kept reaching for a clutch lever and up shifting with my left foot. Just a different feeling not having to operate a clutch & shift. The only noise you hear is the whine of the motor. It’s belt drive so this also makes my it smooth. The handling and braking were similar to my FZ10. I rode five miles the way we ride and noticed the ranged dropped 16 miles. I couldn’t go mach retard because it was governed at only 108 MPH. I did hit the limit several times. When I started the ride the dash indicated a range of 87 miles. After riding for 30 miles the dash showed 24 miles range left. The battery degradation was 73 miles in my 30 mile test ride. As with EV’s cars the motorcycle range anxiety is a deal breaker unless a person commutes a short distances. If you like to go for day rides of 250-350 miles EV bikes are not an option. The economics also don’t make sense, the Zero SR/F I test rode is over $21K. Zero does offer a base model for $9K with a lower range. In the future EV motorcycles might appeal to some people when the battery technology improves, but the range will have to increase monumentally to have the convenience of ICE bikes. I don’t believe EV bikes will ever be a consideration in my motorcycle riding lifetime. JMHO! Link to Zero ST/F specs: https://www.zeromotorcycles.com/model/zero-srf/

    If this job has taught me anything.. it is that nothing is absolute. Ride is back on with a 10am departure time.

    If this is a good deal compared to online prices thats insane. I bought and sold my for less than that when I first started riding, and that seems like forever ago. I guess they hold their value. Great machines. GLWS

    Race license? No. Race license course certificate? Yes I was afraid I may get stuck in Novice but that may be the best way to learn a new track. I’m not sure how much help with lines you would get in intermediate but at some other track day orgs, it seems the control riders are willing to show you. I just put Pirelli SC2 slicks on and am a little concerned the Novice group will not keep them hot enough to get good traction. I will send my info into N2 and see what they come back with. I have done about 20 track days and am Advanced at Mid-O and Intermediate with STT.

    I do a lot of duck hunting and goose hunting, along with deer and some other things. Unfortunately the only public areas that I know of are around the Alum Creek area and some different areas around the Sciota.

    Great plan Pauly. You NEO's have all the fun. It's been a great riding season for me. Just over 11K on the V-Strom and 5k on the Z1K and the best winter Adventure riding is just starting, No Bugs, Cool temps, Leaves and Brush cleared. Will trailer down or back of truck with all the gear. Going to try and do another Smokey Mountain 500 down in TN.NC.GA. this winter and the Talladega National Forrest in AL. Hope to see you gents on one of you SE Ohio rides. Stay Safe.
