  1. That's is crazy!!! I was interesting in this particular GunVault model because of the unique mounting capabilities, but not now. Thanks for steering me clear. I'll stick to my Hornady Rapid Safes. :-)
  2. OK. Let's try this again... This Saturday (10-06-2018). I am planning to ride KY 10 & KY 22 between Maysville, KY & Falmouth, KY. Probably hit some other route like 159 to Mt Auburn, KY then down through Berlin, KY & Powersville, KY down to Mt Olivet, KY back up to Maysville, KY. Depending the direction you are coming from, we could meet in Maysville, KY or Ripley, OH or Hillsboro, OH.... Or I am game for a longer route, just a quick thought I am thinking. Or a different route in Southern Ohio is up for debate too... Would love to meet up and ride.

    Who's up for some riding this holiday weekend???

    Mac, That is a sweet ride. I've been bouncing around the idea of trading in the CBR for a hyper naked, but not sure I can pull the trigger...unless it was an Aprilia Tuono V4 1100 Factory. However, Aprilia's are too rich for my blood. Unfortunately, I threw my back out yesterday and have been bedridden all day today. So, it doesn't look like I I'll be riding this weekend after all. This old body is having the last laugh and reminding me on a regular basis that I will pay for putting it through the military paces of 11B, paratrooper, air assault, etc. Very frustrating, because I was so looking forward all week to riding this holiday weekend. Unless I have a miraculous healing I will be remaining horizontal. If my condition improves, I'll let you know.

    Mac, If your north of Hillsboro, we could meet in Hillsboro and ride down 247 to 41 to Aberdeen to Maysville then onward from there. Just a thought.

    Thanks Mac. I rode KY 22 a couple years ago after others raving about it. That was on my VTX. Now I want to try it out on my CBR. I was thinking Saturday. Time? Not sure yet as you are the first person to respond to my invite. I can meet wherever, but I will be coming from Hillsboro.

BTW, just FYI...Don't ride 763 south of Decatur, OH...they have that road all tore up with a bridge. Rode it earlier this year and it was a mess. So, much for that road for a while.

    Hi, Chris. Welcome. You know I am bias towards Honda's. (Since I myself have a Blue Beast 2006 Honda CBR1000RR.) LOL Glad to see you made it here. I sent you a pm with my personal contact info if it is easier for meeting up. Look forward to riding with Mike and you. Take care. OhioBob

    Welcome to the forum. Glad to see you found it. Yes, I look forward to doing some riding with you too. Can't wait to see that Duc in action. Next couple of days are supposed to amazing...especially for November. I will be riding the Blue Beast (CBR1000RR) after work tomorrow, if you are game.

    Looking for feedback on Scorpion EXO-R2000 helmet

    I agree, whatever product fits "you" better is the one for that individual. However, what makes you say that the Bell is nicer than the Scorpion? Thanks.

    Looking for feedback on Scorpion EXO-R2000 helmet

    Tonik, Thanks for your reply. If I was up in the air between the new Bell Star (street) helmet and the Scorpion EXO-R2000 helmet, which would you lean towards? What if the R2000 helmet was discounted by half (under $200)? Thanks again.
  13. Hi, I am looking, well wasn't, but now am looking for a new lid to replace my aging Bell Star (Snell2005). It has been a great lid, but has probably been a little bigger than should be on me. I wear a Large for most helmets. Anyways, I stumbled on to some truly or seemingly great deals of Scorpion riding gear. So, has anyone had/tried the Scorpion EXO-R2000 full face helmet? If so, how did/do you like it over the long haul? How has it stood the test of time? Have you had other lids? If so, how does the R2000 compare to those? Ride Hard or what's the point? OhioBob

    Looking for the SV1000S in Leesburg

    Very true statement. I have met several over just the last year and none of them had ever heard of OhioRiders.net. So, sad. All we can do is keep spreading the word. Ride Hard or what's the point. OhioBob

    Looking for the SV1000S in Leesburg

    Nobody? Come on someone knows the guy (or gal). I am looking for local riding buddies. I am usually a lone wolf, because I can ride my pace and not worry about others falling behind or wrecking trying to keep up, etc., but other times I wish I had a group/crew to enjoy these great twisty roads in Southern Ohio with.
