  1. Gap BRP trip

    Check on the website for the BRP. They had some heavy tree damage from Irma coming through last Monday and I know the section from Ashville NC up to Mount Mitchel is still closed due to trees coming down in the storm. https://www.nps.gov/maps/full.html?mapId=e212fcb5-4ff9-4787-bbe4-3d40cc0d0daa#10/35.8735/-81.8207
  2. AIM Expo 9-22 & 9-23 who's going.

    Hopefully I will be there for a couple of the days if not all 4, scored myself an industry pass for the weekend. I have two of my bikes in one of the display booths. I'm going to have my Sportclassic and the Multistrada at the Texa USA diagnostics booth.
  3. Motus MST Demo Ride

    For the Central Ohio folks, Motohio is the local dealer here in Columbus. I doubt they have a demo bike but it can't hurt to ask and see if they do or when Motus may be back in the area with the demo truck.
  4. What did you do to your bike today?

    I'm impressed with it. It will certainly be a long term ownership. The Pikes Peak has the Ohlins suspension and a bunch of carbon fiber parts the base models don't have. Headlights are better than most cars. I've added the saddle bags, running lights, Garmin gps, Termignoni full race exhaust and a couple parts that are more for pretty than actually needed like a quick release gas cap, billet brake/clutch levers and I changed it to GP shift so it matches my other 2 bikes. It averages right around 40-43mpg in the twisties and I was seeing 50mpg on the highway. Not bad for a bigger bike that puts 147hp and 103ftlbs to the back tire. The low carbon windscreen gets really loud above 75mph, I haven't tried the standard taller clear screen that came with the bike to see how it sounds on the highway. Nothing else really jumps out as a bad thing about the bike other than the price.
  5. Craigslist, eBay, Internet find thread

    Dangit, I used to have one of those, hence the username. Figures another one pops up when I am shit broke and can't afford it.
  6. What did you do to your bike today?

    This was taken 2 days ago but I rode it to Little Switzerland and back. The trip was scheduled to keep going down to the dragon but a pesky hurricane messed up those plans and ended up riding home a bunch early.
  7. Instant Up Canopy Sale-Dicks Sporting Goods

    I would watch the way they have those ads worded. The actually canopy size is only either 8x8 or 10x10. They are going off of the max outside dimension on the slanted legs to call them 10x10 or 12x12. Still cheap but watch out or you may end up getting something smaller than you wanted.
  8. Motus MST Demo Ride

    I got to ride the MST-R last year. Kinda had the same impression with the bike as you do. It's a really nice bike but doesn't quite have the refinement of an established brand that is building it's new bikes off the foundation of those that came before. Nothing felt cheap or that it was poorly built, it just didn't feel finished.
  9. @derekclouser. You guys were following my group. You catch any video of me going slow and holding you up? 😀
  10. You guys caught me chillin on pit road waiting to go. Group 4 bike 165. Glad to meet the couple of you guys throughout the day. Sorry I didn't hang out more but I hooked up with a few other friends and all hung out together in the heat and suffered as a group under a couple popups.
  11. I will certainly need to walk over and talk with you goobers tomorrow. I'm parked over by the concession stand in the middle of the lot. I didn't bother with a garage this time around.
  12. I'll be there Sunday night if possible, I'm not a morning person. I would much rather wake up Monday morning already in the parking lot, drop the bike off the trailer and make brap brap noises almost immediately.
  13. I did something stupid

    That hose is so you know how much air you need to bleed out of your cooling system.
  14. I really need to get my car on a dyno and then run the 1/4 with it. I would love to know what it can do these days compared to a modern muscle car. It's probably really slow.
  15. I watched the Challenger accident live on TV when in grade school. They had TV's in all the classrooms due to a teacher going up on it.
