    Fly-By Week tell me more

    Assuming I am one of the old guys...If/when the CB500X sells I am probably going to get a naked bike like a street triple or Z900.

    Funny picture thread.

    Track riding is so much safer...that's why medical staff is present...you know, because it's so much safer.

    There's nothing quite like the sense of freedom you experience when you're riding a motorcycle...for 20 minutes at a time...you know, when they give you permission.

    2008 FZ6; Best Offer OR.net Pricing

    This what I'll probably buy, but not until next season. Might be worth comparing to a the RT https://cleveland.craigslist.org/mcy/d/west-mifflin-2015-bmw-r1200r-lc/6903982643.html

    bike 2014 CB500x

    For sale. I'll add pics when I get back from vacation 2014 CB500x with 10,500 miles SW Motech crash bars, SW Motech belly pan, Leo Vince Exhaust. 2 complete sets of wheels/tires with brakes discs, etc...1 set up with street tires, and one with knobbies. Comes with stock & extended windscreens...stock levers and shorty levers. Luggage rack and top case. Center stand. Probably some other things I'm forgetting. If you heard me talk about this bike, you know it has been off road and it has been down. Crash bars did their job and there was no real damage. Tank, forks, frame, handlebars, even the levers were completely undamaged. I did replace the shifter & crash bars (they were scratched up but still fully functional). I bought this to get into adv riding, but was surprised at how good it is on road. It's quite capable in corners with lots of ground clearance. It even did really well on last year's 2,500 mile Gap Trip. It'll cruise all day at 90 mph and tops out around 110-115. Mechanically and functionally it's 100%. Cosmetically is in good shape except for some mud I've been too lazy to wash off. I think $3,500 is a really fair price. GPS could be negotiated.

    I've been seriously considering a BMW boxer twin lately. Probably a 2015+ R1200r (maybe an R Nine T). It's a naked with bag and windshield options that make it a fully capable tourer.

    Sorry my slow bike couldn't be there to lead.

    Rider training

    I road part of the KAT last year. That was some good off road training.

    2019 Gap Trip.

    In my experience this is true for the Deals Gap area. The popup storms typically aren't huge and with a little route planning you can mostly ride around them.

    2019 Gap Trip.

    Last time we changed our route to avoid a storm on radar that never came. You're better off watching the sky than the forecast.

    I wasn't asking for advice on how to make OR great again.
