    Speeding ticket handling

    I got popped about three yrs. ago on the slab in N. Dayton... I didn't have the time, nor want to return to court to contest it. I lawyered up & got it changed to malfunctioning equipment violation or something like that. Cost a few bux for the lawyer, but it kept my insurance rates the same, whereas an speeding excessive velocity award would've easily surpassed the cost of the lawyer by mucho $$$ for a LOT longer.... Friggin' insurance thieves...

    Rideohio.org ????

    Anyone know what happened to the RideOhio.org forum? It was another tool in the riding forum arsenal that I found handy from time to time....
  4. In order to preserve my drivers license, I'm listing my '04 ZZR 12 for sale: '04 ZZR1200 w/ 35k ish.. miles on it (& they will go up as it does daily commuting & weekend playing). I bought the bike in '12 & thought I could make a decent sport-tourer out of it wanting something a little different than the C10 Concours I sold previous.... turns out that while it's a fun bike, even w/ the mods, it'll never be what I miss about the Concours.. Anywho, here's the skinny: Metz Z6 f & r tires have about 1500 miles on them, 3 windscreens; oem, Mra w/ extender, & Ermax w/ MRA extender, C10 handlebars, which are taller than the oem bars w/ blocks that most people install, heated grips, Corbin seat, Tutoro chain oiler just installed, new chain & sprockets not installed, & old style Krauser saddlebags. A trunk is also included but not pictured. I've got some hard rubber shock cushions under the base of the mirrors to give a better rearward view than looking at your elbows. Also have a ram mount off the mirror bolt hole on the clutch side. Playing / commuting will return around the low-mid 30's gas mileage & have netted about 250 miles from a tankful during weekend trips. Can send better pics if requested. Bike is located about 1/2 hr. n. of Toledo Will discuss pricing w/ serious inquiries.... still riding / enjoying the bike, not going to give it away.... Not looking to trade for anything either.... Looking to regain garage space due to another purchase!

    Bladensburg area info

    While out-n-about on an overnighter in the Mt Vernon / Coshocton area, the wife & I drove past a farm shop on Rt541 about a mile east of Bladensburg w/ an amazing assortment of hit-n-miss motors on the property. Does any of you have any info on this place:

    What old Honda is this fairing from?

    Yep, looks like a Hannigan...although, didn't they have internal compartments w/ locking lids? I'm also reminded of the fairing on that Z-1 that "Toecutter" rode in the original MadMax movie....
