  1. Truck driving

    Good luck,let us know how it works out.Be careful about getting into one of those deals where you owe the company $5000 or more for your training if you don't stay with them a certain length of time.
  2. Make The Most of Every Ride

    It's probably worth mentioning that the rider was 78 or 79 years old,which leads many people to question a possible health issue.He was a very seasoned and respected rider and member of the FJR community.I just talked to someone that was at the accident scene shortly after the crash.From what he said it was an easy turn,like a 35 mph suggested turn after a long straight away...something Petey would have no problem with. Thankfully he went quick,probably instantaneously. RIP Petey,the FJR community has lost another one of it's long time members that gave it its soul.
  3. Anti-Trump Rally

    Trump made a good song even better in Indy Sunday.
  4. Random Thoughts thread

    A related article,I know it's a different district but it explains ODOT's reasoning. https://www.salemnews.net/news/local-news/2017/09/odot-combating-costs-with-chip-seal-approach/

    No pavement...chipseal.Same thing on 145 North of 821.I hope this is a precurser to future paving,otherwise it just sucks.
  6. Tire Changers (in the market)

    ...and it's made in America.If you're going to the AIME show they might have some deals.Check their website for what days they're going to be there.
  7. Random Thoughts thread

    I got one with a recent Aerostitch order.It's still sitting on my table unopened.I've been busy the last couple weeks.I might get to it after the end of the month.
  8. tires change

    Learn to do them yourself. https://www.nomartirechanger.com/Tire_Changers_s/37.htm Probably the best thing I've bought that is motorcycle related.The only thing that has paid for itself many times over. They will be at the AIME show September 23 and 24.They might have some deals for the show.I got mine at an IMS show and saved quite a bit.
  9. Random Thoughts thread

    I heard this last night at an eclipse meeting... When the Earth moves between the Sun and Moon you have a Lunar eclipse. When the Moon moves between the Earth and Sun you have a Solar eclipse. When the Sun moves between the Earth and Moon you have the Apocalypse.
  10. How to become a progressive Democrat

    Rarely do I find anything of value on OR,but that link is definitely worthwhile reading.Thank you.
  11. Advice on SEO route

    If anyone has an interest in local history there is a very interesting cemetery at the perry/hocking county line on 595.Paynes Crossing was a community of freed slaves.Several of the men served in the Colored Troops in the Civil War.I often stop there on rides to take a water break and try to imagine the lives those men led.Truely adventurous souls!My 04 FJR also turned over 100,000 miles there. http://www.ohiohistorycentral.org/w/Paynes_Crossing,_Ohio
  12. Advice on SEO route

    Gilchrist's Convenience Store...not your typical convenience store.Nice selection of locally blown glass bowls and bongs.

    100k will get here sooner than you think.
  14. Justin's Saddlesore 1000

    Yep,I really like my R-3 lite,but they are a little cumbersome if you're doing a ride with a lot of stops...long distance they are great!I I told you when you got that FJR that they have long legs...it looks like you're putting them to use.Congratulations on your IBA run.
  15. New Bike Research

    I would keep the street bike and get a small dual sport.BTW, I love your XSR...I think we share engines,I have the FJ 09.But anyway,I had a KLR and found out real quick that light weight is the way to go off road.I would never own a dual sport as heavy as a KLR again. I've done a lot of camping on a bike but it was all on an FJR out west so I really can't speak to camping on a light weight bike.
