  1. Sonik's maiden voyage. 7-22-17

    On radar Ohio is going to be engulfed by that blob tomorrow, As of now hope for tomorrow is none existent for me. I am hoping the tail end fizzle away so at least Sunday might prove worth while for a ride.

  5. Please advise me on what bike to buy.

    with the new street triple did they just kill the speed triple? or do they have bigger plans for that engine? Only time will tell i guess. the other day was at the dealership, saw the new striple in person sat on it and made vrooom vroom sounds. to be honest in person look wise not much eye popping difference, in fact many of the after market support same with current model. the components stand out both in spec wise as well as blink factor , brembos and ohlins etc ride position felt more comfortable than my current street triple, dont know how to explain, more natural, good ergonomic bend on hips, knees and elbows. And enough space and "stoopness" to tuck. Of course the beast inside the bike is completely different than the current one. Some day will test ride it and see.

    Dayum, so the radar is right on the money i was hoping it would fizzle away. Well that means tomorrow is gonna be very tough. The front tomorrow is bigger size than today. If this keeps up sunday might be dry for sure then coz rest of the tail is insignificant Will wait till tonight to see, if the weather look like there is enough window of opportunity to get out early and head south to miss the mid to upper ohio area rain i will still try for that. if not will have to sit this one out, then i am just gonna kick and punch some crap around here and sulk all day in self consuming frustration about unchangeable fate and weather. yes, definitely i plan to do that. But Suspension setting is not at all a dark art if you have some basic understanding and used to just riding based on the instinct and feel, and the setting is not put into extreme worse spectrum of adjustment. There is mainly only three things/ SAG/ compression/ Rebound. Once with help of second person to measure the sag is set as much close to recommended setting as possible all that remains is (compression / dampning) which mainly is based on your riding style. The main difference between track and road is the varying road conditions, varying speeds etc unless we have fancy skyhook/ddc etc, You sort of go for a happy medium/ which is tailor made for you/ which only we can get by understanding and attempting to do it ourselves / put it in factory recommended setting for starters/ and then by riding around different roads, stopping and clicking +/- until we find a comfortable yet confident place. The current setting is okay and i am happy with it. As of now, no diving,no pogo sticking, no bounce, no wallowing, etc but In my mind i prefer i wish it was two more clicks softer, but i am already maxed out on clicks to go with this.The option remaining is getting lower weight oil / dont want to spend money on valving/ for sag getting lower spring etc I plan to do in winter if i like this bike and plan to keep it for next year. Still Having said that I am gonna pick the brains of them guys next time we have break during ride and then go over everything to double check if i am doing it right way. Always surprised by what another set of experienced eyes brings to the table. And the worse part for street triple is the insane place where the rebound screw is located on the forks right below handle bar and no direct access with screw driver. Gonna bring my low profile tool and stuff to next group ride and check with them guys.
  7. yep, ur taking this one

    the radar looks like its raining in columbus area now. is it actually raining there? if thats not happening the next set of darkies behind it wont rain on us tomorrow. A theory not at all based on science but just hope.
