    What did you do to your bike today?

    You know the original choice of spring was because they "looked" better. I guess they found customers actually preferred something that worked.

    Linking the 2 brakes like is done on every 2 wheel motorcycle would be sufficient to balance the braking forces between the 2 wheels. An advanced ABS/stability control system could independently brake the wheels to provide additional stability under emergency braking. That does require additional sensors but no more that is getting pretty common in motorcycles with lean angle sensitive ABS and advanced traction control.

    East Rim is really good and definitely the most popular. It is primarily fast a flowy with a few techy rock features. There are 2 shortish loops and each loop has an optional more advanced option. One is a techy rock fest the other is a mini downhill run with good jumps. The downhill is new and hasn't been fully opened yet due to the soft trails. I would suggest also riding Hampton Hills if in the area as its not far from East Rim.

    I saw both your times on Strava... Very impressive. I know based on last years Funk Bottoms experience over similar terrain I am much slower. Riding in NEO does not give you a good comparison to effort required for an event like BFGG or Funk. I had a conflict for the BF but have signed up for Funk again, this time as single speed. Should be painful.

    NEO Dinner Monday April 22 @ 6:30PM @ Rick Roush

    Planning to stop by this evening. I won't be eating anything but want to say hi to all and check out a Z125 or Grom
  10. Yep, I know. But beer and meat for a break should be plenty to get me back to Akron 😃 Pick a time and I'll txt you when I'm more confident in the weather. Or I'll see you tonight in Medina.
  11. I might be up for this. 20 miles on the towpath sounds like a nice ride on the single speed, assuming the weather cooperates .
  12. Pretty sure that line is the Power (left hand numbers) while the lower line is torque. Still looks a little shy of 108

    I'm baaaaaaakkkkk!

    With those torque numbers and the way Tonik rides the rear tire is not going to last a week in the Gap area

    Planning to ride the Funk Bottoms again this year. Might have to consider the Black Fork as a warm up. Looks like the same type of ride just a few miles shorter However I don't really race, for me its more about finishing. Though I did finish the 100k Funk Bottoms last year before the first 200k finisher, just.
