    OMRL 2019 Season

    Starting a seasonal mini racing thread because everybody hates us and we should stay in our hole. Here's our hole. Also, looking like a pretty large grid this year with a lot of cool stuff happening with the organization, along with some possible new classes. @MidgetTodd time to bust out the grom/Z and blow us all up.

    OMRL 2019 Season

    Already talking to Jake about bringing the grom up. He wants to see if we can do anything to get it to run on pump gas. Don't think we can change timing or adjust the finbro ecu at all but it's worth at least looking at.

    OMRL 2019 Season

    Jacob is a rocketship on it, I know that. I will be going like +7 or 8 on the rear sprocket for race gearing too so... it may power wheelie in 1st and 2nd at that point.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    CBR dropped at Kerr's for valves and a few other basic maintenance needs. Clutch springs replaced in the Grom. XR kicked on with kick #5 after sitting all fall and winter. CBR and Grom going on the dyno soon.

    No big bike stuff for me until at least mid June I think. Dropping the CBR off at Kerr's for valves Wednesday and then minis/work is taking up most of May.

    Lets fix this ear plug BS

    It wasn't listing riders under OSHA, it just gives types of operators that require hearing protection an exemption from the law - at least that's how it was explained to me. This came from an organization that 'should' know what is going on. I wish I had gotten the exact bill they cited that got through as they were 100% certain it had been made law. I explained this attempt to legalize it and they said it was different from what was passed. 🤷‍♂️

    Lets fix this ear plug BS

    I'm aware of the effort that was put into this on our end. I am saying that supposedly there was another bill that went through last year that changed the classification of motorcyclists to be in line with other jobs/etc that are allowed to wear hearing protection while operating a vehicle. The example I got was construction workers, garbage truck operators, etc. OSHA mandates that hearing protection must be worn in certain situations and that would put OSHA regs in direct conflict with state law, which can't happen, thus the exemption they get.

    Lets fix this ear plug BS

    So I heard over the weekend that motorcyclists got an exemption from the law that makes it illegal to wear hearing protection while riding. Specifically earplugs FOR hearing protection, not earphones/etc. Supposedly this happened last summer/fall. So there may have been another effort going through in conjunction with this one that succeeded?

    Who has a Speed Triple?

    Must have changed ergos on the newer ones, or I just didn't ever notice any difference. I think they did ditch the old street triple subframe for the daytona subframe on the triple RS. I'm being super helpful! If you're looking for a naked with comfort and the ability to 2-up/do some longer distance riding... the MT-10 has a touring package straight from yamaha. Not sure how comfortable the rear seat is but I know that thing will wheelie every chance it gets. Plus, cruise control.

    Who has a Speed Triple?

    The ergos are the same as the Street Triple, and I have done 14 hour days on it and been fine riding the next day. I'm 6'6 though so...

    Who has a Speed Triple?

    I was looking at them - I wouldn't buy one before the 2016 model though. The weight reduction and slight power increase it got made it less of a tugboat compared to the MT10/Z900 from what I've read.

    I crash a few times per weekend on the minis, but that's because I am pushing that bike way past what they were built to do, with 20 other riders doing exactly the same thing right next to me. I'm curious how the Grom will do this year with decent suspension, tires and brakes. I'm not expecting my pretty plastics to survive the season, but I'm going to (in theory) take more care on that bike than I do on the indestructible XR100. (of course that's always the plan until you're fighting for a position and are pretty god damn sure you can keep/take it if you just push that 1% harder 😂) Big bikes - I would not be pushing to that point.

    2019 Gap Trip.

    Bummer. I need to spend some more time in WV, although it might be best to have a bike that can outrun a car in a straight line before spending too much time there.
  20. For some, not all.
  21. Photo from the gap trip last year, on the way back from amazing BBW in Gatlinburg: BBQ** LOL

    Gloves

    I really like my RST gloves. $70, have held up to all kinds of abuse and were really comfortable from the minute I put them on the first time.
