  1. Delta, City of Murals Downtown Ouray Dillon Reservoir
  2. Curecanti Reservoir on US50 near Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Pics of Black Canyon of the Gunnison. First 2 are from the south rim. Last few are from the north rim off SR92.
  3. 2TT: On Day 10, unless you're specifically targeting a trip to Delta--cool little town nicknamed "City of Murals" for good reason--the SR92 loop around the north side of Black Canyon of the Gunnison is a worthwhile road with awesome views. BCG is also worthy of a stop just for a photo-op if you have the time. You can access it from the south side off US50 to stay on pavement, or off SR92 from the north side if you don't mind some smooth, graded gravel to get to the rim overlooks. Looks like a great trip!
  4. Doug: Guess I didn't realize you were a westside guy. I frequently ride SE Indiana and NKY backroads. Shoot me a msg if you want company or a partner-in-crime.
  5. Scanned thru it. Nice vid!!!
  6. Tuned or turbo’d civics...

    Cursing at 70 MPH will make your f*#ki@g gas mileage go into the gd mf$^! crapper faster than a $10 whore goes down on Michael Jordan, @$$h01e....
  7. bike 2000 Kawasaki Ninja ZX12R

    Pit Bull stand is worth....$125-150? So...say $2650. Nice clean bike, tho. How much "upkeep and maintenance" is required over 4K miles?
  8. Michelin Road 5 Tires

    Looks a whole lot like the Pirelli Angel GTs, too, with a bit more siping.
  9. Ohio Riders Invades Deals Gap 2018

    Jeez. If this crew is as screwed up and sarcastic on the annual Gap trip as they are on the forum, I've gotta make it a point to go one year just to get some new material to abuse my friends....er, acquaintances with. No salty pirate, tho....
  10. WD-40...on tires!

    Justin: Prolly not a huge issue, but I've always had a slight concern that the petroleum based WD-40 would react with the rubber at the bead. I always sneak into the wife's pantry and "borrow" her vegetable cooking spray to use as a lubricant for mounting. Works better than soapy water with no chance of leaving any moisture inside the carcass to cause rim corrosion and degrades quickly. Try it--you'll like it!
  11. WD-40...on tires!

    Apply Tire Shine as a final coat to help maintain that new glossy appearance!

    Hmmm. Dunno what happened to the link. Since when couldn't we embed Googlemap links in OR?

    Not sure what your timing is for the rest of the day, but the reprise of the old Alley Meet the morning of the Oregonia Hillclimb event is at Fuel Coffee on Riverside Dr from 8-12. There's always a bunch of bikes and riders, some of whom will head to the Oregonia event and some of whom will find each other for a ride of some sort, likely into NKY. I'll be there about 9ish, but not sure yet if I can break away for a longer ride after coffee. Even if you just stop in for a minute to say "Hi", check it out.
  14. Scorpion Clutch Leather Gloves $95!

    Big thanks to Mike at RidersDiscount for setting me up with these gloves. Nicest pair of "paws" I've ever had. The fit was exactly as spec'd on the Scorpion website and they are seriously heavy-duty, at least for street. Not sure I'd pay the MSRP of $250, but at the out-the-door price of $95, I can't see finding anything as nice for half again as much. Check 'em out if you're looking for new gloves!!!
  15. Giving up riding: is it even possible?

    Most of you know I'm one of the old guys here. Less than a month away from 67and riding since I was 14. Have been away from riding several times thru the years. Couldn't tell you 'zactly when or for how long, but it prolly doesn't matter. At least once was due to finances. At least once was due to fatal accidents by riding friends. At least once was due to lack of energy for the whole riding scene. Bottom line, I'd say if it feels right for you, go ride. Stop when it no longer feels right. Sell your stuff when you're not using it #becausedepreciableasset. Buy new, better stuff if you decide to throw a leg over again. Yer welcome.
