    Not yet, still all stock. Right now I can hit a pretty constant 53/54 and the wife can hit 60 no problem.

    Ohio Riders Invades Deals Gap 2018

    Took this pic on Wednesday. We drove to Wayah to find it blocked, then went around to Junaluska and followed it down. This is at Junaluska and Old River Road. Just days before we had driven down Old River Road and been walking thru the waterfalls.

    Pain while riding, or "I'm getting old"

    https://throttlemeister.com/ Relief on that right hand allows you a bit more mobility on the bike. Add in a better seat and it will be like a different bike. After my friend took at bike trip with me to the dragon last summer, he ordered a new seat for his GSXS1000 and loves it. Edit: also, long frame sliders made excellent highway pegs. ?

    Lets discuss oil filters...

    I've got my last K&N on my FZ09 now from a bulk pack I bought a few yrs ago. I'm not worried about it because I bought them a yr before all the issues popped up. But I guess after this 3k, I'm switching to Yami filters. The Groms don't have filters and the CB300F has a cartridge, so no worries there.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    The FZ09 and CB300F both got heated grips today.

    When we first started looking at bikes for her, she debated on the Grom or the CB300F. I got her the CB300F for her birthday 3 yrs ago. Then Honda came out with the highlighter yellow Grom and she had to have it...

    Yea, she's tiny at 5 ft and 110 lbs. Grom is perfect size. Her CB300F is lowered so she can touch easier.

    Ever since Honda brought out the highlighter yellow, the wife has been drooling over it. And her having one is no fun if I don't have one too... so for our 1 yr wedding anniversary, we got some twin toys! Also, where can I get some Ohio Riders decals? The wife wants a hot pink one.

    Made the down payment on my first new bike ever.

    Everyone said the same thing about the FZ09 and that was my exact thought. "Can't be as bad as my SV1000S." My friend has a GSXS1000 and loves the thing. It's a nice piece of machinery.

    Youtube clip: Close call with a semi

    Most cagers don't understand that a regular truck pulling a trailer needs extra space to stop.

    It's ram mounted. We used the bike as a tripod to get good shots of the wife and I at stops. Non-Touring bikes was what I was quoting. And I'd say an FZ1 is a pretty great touring set up. Heck, I toured my SV1000S with a full Givi setup. That alot more aggressive seating position than an FZ1.

    Everyone acts like it so horrible... I did 4500 miles 2 up in 12 days. Best trip of my life.
