  1. My R1 has a linked system like that as well. It makes a noticeable difference when both tires are on the ground.
  2. I'd say about 20% of people around where I live in Columbus wear masks. Also the mandatory mask thing isn't being enforced unless a store calls the cops on you after asking you to leave and you don't. And even then it would be a trespassing call and not a call over someone not wearing a mask. They can't actually do anything to someone because they aren't wearing a mask.
  3. trailing with the rear is a quick ticket to highside city if things go sideways. highsides are not fun. all included puns intended.
  4. Supposedly they had already moved to their own forum almost 6 months ago, that subreddit was dead. Not sure what they got up to on there to get them banned, I do know reddit is a cesspool of SJW ideals though. I've been banned a couple of times over the years for posting pretty innocuous things that got spun into whatever "-ist/-ism" the flavor of the month was at the time.
  5. clearly the panic is starting to set in for someone. always late to the party?
  6. I still don't think the official infection #'s are anywhere close to realistic, which would bring the death % down by at least half if not more. Still higher than flu though. And still fucks your shit up beyond the actual sickness.

    Seems he knows what motivates politicians.

    somehow OR ends up with nukes
  9. roll wheel off, caliper stays in place. roll wheel on, caliper stays in place. it's also important on modern bikes because of wheel speed sensors being in the line of fire and very fragile if a person isn't careful putting the wheel back on.
  10. That's the next mod to the R1. Fast Frank say hello to my $$$ 😐

    2-3 weeks since the protests/riots. is anybody surprised? What I will be surprised about is if they actually say that is a large factor in the new cases and not blame it on the states "opening up too soon". On the bright side, that's a bunch more people who will now be immune, one way or another. Didn't have to wait long, thanks NBC: https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/black-lives-matter-protests-haven-t-led-covid-19-spikes-n1232045 It's not the mass gathering of people leading to the transmission, it's all the people who DIDN'T go out and protest that are to blame. 😂😂😂😂😂

    Singling out the police brutality issue to one very specific aspect of it may be making it harder to deal with, because it is dividing up the base that would be for reforms over perceived racial motives. Having a strong message and platform to deal with the problem is good, but basing it on something as volatile as racial prejudices, especially in the US, is in my opinion a bad move on the organizer's part. Unless of course the motivation now is to deepen the racial tensions and pull people apart for political gain. I'm not being dismissive of the very present racial issues in the justice system, but the root of these problems goes much much deeper and ends up being more an economic and poverty problem rather than a racial problem in most instances. Police reforms are a band aid for a wound that goes down to the bone.

    I'm glad they are finally tackling the real problem. I now have hope this will all be resolved shortly. https://www.hipstersofthecoast.com/2020/06/wizards-bans-7-cards-that-depict-racism-including-invoke-prejudice/ for context, the "color" of a creature or card just has to do with its element affiliation:

    better rename the irish car bomb, scotch tape, sauerkraut and english breakfast tea too or i'm going to start being really offended.

    Masks are a good as a general practice, the benefits are out there in good detail. Despite the sensationalism being mixed in covid isn't a made up illness. I have my own thoughts on it, but I do believe it is actually very dangerous for people with weak immune systems just based off of what I experienced. I still have a very slight cough and it has been over 90 days since I first had symptoms. It did some damage to my lungs for sure - some things I've read say they have seen lung scarring that might never heal and a lingering mild dry cough might be a sign of that.

    That specifically says asymptomatic carriers have a minimized immune response and may not develop antibodies. Studies from Korea have stated that there is indeed immunity in recovered patients. So essentially if you had it and never knew you had it, you may be able to get it again and may or may not know you have gotten it again depending on your immune response. 🤷‍♂️ But yes you are technically correct and I guess my statement was not completely correct. Just partly.

    No point in wearing a mask if you've already had it. I wear one 50/50 - if I have to or most people around are wearing one I'll put it on just so I don't hurt people's feelings, but if people aren't wearing them there's really no point. I do use hand sanitizer like it's going out of style though - that is one way I can transmit still, touch something someone else coughed on then touch something else.

    They want to prosecute it as a hate crime? Send the dude that was interviewed to jail as a racist? I feel bad for him honestly. Trying to do something fun and now gets dragged into this political nonsense.
  19. Stickers are from the fairing's original owner. Haven't gotten around to taking them off yet. To his credit he did an actual GYTR build... dang crazy money spent. This isn't 100% finished, I want to do something with the belly pan and probably the sides. Nothing major but some sort of color that follows the angle of the subframe/tail section.
  20. @jacobhawkins helped with some vinyl wrap on the R1. It is now no longer a 100% carbon fiber color scheme.
  21. It's fun until the dew starts to form on the track at around 11pm to midnight lol. I think that track used the same sealant that Mid-O used. Had a pretty good highside earlier that day, which I wasn't feeling too bad during the night races, but the races the next day I started to feel a bit off... yesterday and today I can't lift a coffee cup to my mouth using my right arm. Don't want to do that again. I ended up 3rd in the race posted, 3rd in points overall. Gotta start winning - that kid in front of me weighs 70lbs wet and walks big bore bikes on the straight with his "stock" setup. He's dirt slow in the corners but really tough to pass as he will not cede the inside line even if you are right next to him wheel to wheel, he will run right into you.
  22. Night race heat 1 from Saturday night - POV is from Kevin, one of my(our) teammates. I'm in front of him most of the race on the grom.
  23. They've already been taken over by a group of armed individuals. 🙃
