    Ohio Riders Unofficial Mid-Ohio Track Day 2018

    I have this day off and it's on my schedule now. Planning to attend.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    I pulled the fairly blah looking rubber coolant hoses off the bike and replaced them with some nice red silicone bling.

    Pocket knife obsession

    I have 3 Kershaw knives. Good quality for the price. A pair of the mid sized Leek models with 2 different serration styles and then a larger Shallot with the Damascus blade. I have unfortunately not done a great job of caring for the damascus blade and one of these days I am going to need to polish the thing to get the rust off and then redo the acid dip to get the layers to really stand out again. It's the only drawback of everyday carry with a carbon bladed knife is making sure to keep it oiled.

    Funny picture thread.

    This one hits hard on so many levels.

    Let's see your $100 (or less) handguns

    Rifles seem to be much easier to get for under a 100 bucks if you look hard enough. I have gotten an SKS, 2 British Enfields, a Mosin and a really old Steyr for under a hundred each. Here is the picture of that CZ I mentioned before.

    Which sport tourer is best sport tourer?

    Only parts of the forum trailer. There are people on here that still actually ride. Here is a picture of my Sprint ST when I rode it out to Eureka Springs Arkansas and back. We stopped at Bull Shoals for a break and a buddy got a cool picture of me.

    Kinda have to agree with Pokey on this one. My Multistrada 1200 with the right rider would keep up with superbikes and no problems staying in front of the 600-800cc crowd. It is as good of a sport-touring bike as any I have owned or ridden even if shoe-horned into the ADV category. Granted the price isn't going to win over as many people as the Japanese options but I certainly don't regret buying it.

    What i did in guns.

    Huh, not sure that I would buy one but that's still kinda cool. I have an original Underwood manufactured WWII gun to ease the itch for a carbine.

    I had an old Combloc CZ52 pistol in 7.62 Tokarev. Picked it up in the early 2000's for $99. Was not the greatest of firearm and don't have any pictures on the phone. Sold it a few years ago for $400.

    Sorry for the slow reply but yep, '87 Buick Grand National. Here is a shot of it from a few years ago on the day I brought it home.

    Who makes an M1 carbine in 9mm?

    My 2006 Sprint ST was a great bike. Well over 30k miles with no issues. Would have kept it for many more years if I hadn't done the poor bike the disservice of not being attentive and stuffing it into the side of a mountain. Oops, my bad, just didn't cover it.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Haven't done anything to the bikes in a few months but I did send my car into the shop for a full repaint. They are working their way through all the dents and wrinkles. I still call myself lucky to have gotten one of the most rust free 1987 Buicks you could hope for.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    I did gold valves on my triumph, it had a much different washer configuration than stock. If you followed the instructions from the calculator on their site you should be happy with the results. I never needed to adjust anything afterwards and it was noticeably better than stock.

    Are you ready to give up your 2nd amendment rights

    Yep, that bill is harsh. Any full auto's must be permanently disabled and any Semi-auto firearm that can hold 10 rounds or more because an assault weapon and is therefor illegal. I thing the state of Ohio needs a serious cleaning house in government.
