  1. Welcome Rich that day I was waiting for @durk when I saw you, you see the similarities with Cbr and tail bags there right should link up with @Skinny guy as well since he rides the same roads you do most days
  2. Finally got a good laptop and able to compress with proper codec and things seems to work out pretty well
  3. Dayum RIP link he was a great guy and very good mature rider as well. Seems like the car crossed center line and got him. I am100% sure he was atgatt and riding within his limits And reacted and did everything right. And despite that it’s just what it is. This is really sad news. Stay safe out there OR fam. just today I was telling my wife how OR cultivates a lot of safe riding habits. for eg last 10 yrs we didn’t have any fatal crash or even real bad crash for members and in the NC FB group in the three months I been lurking I think 4 fatalities and other real bad accidents.
  4. Thx UP, i could still see the rev counter light up. The video doesn’t pick it up. Sometimes I wish the speedo was not covered, just to review the speeds on Play back for learning points and comparisons etc. easiest way to get data without needing other apps and softwares etc
  5. If at all there is a chance I will try to make it, 👍
  6. Yes, I was lucky they Did that since I wanted to work on my left handers the most
  7. I just want to take a moment to thank @TimTheAzn and @Jester_ for pulling into track days after nearly 9 -10 yrs since last track day. Without tim making the day easy to sign up and join etc i would never have been able to join. Whats with these asian guys helping you to make your first track day easy - must be a culture thing. Hi ... How you doing.... let’s go for a track day ? ( @jbot ) Last year end on a cold fall day got to do one in PIRC. Wanted to do one more with you guys before i left But i couldnt. But i really enjoyed the day, less stressful and lot of fun all because you guys and big timmy and others where there. And i went ahead and did one more this summer here in NC and just wanted to share a brief write up. Even for this one, tim made it easy by arranging sign up all the way from ohio short review of track day day I did before the blistering summer heat started. This first para for who ever dont want to read big wall of text: I will never be a track junkie , will always enjoy street ride. I don’t have the competitive edge or aggressiveness or the desire for high velocity straights, but corners.... man corners I love them. And the big difference is i think i will slow way down in the streets and enjoy the destination and travel and leave the speed and adrenaline to the track where it was safer. Is track costly, repetitive and boring for a street touring fan, yes if you look at it that way. But if you look at it in a way where you pay speeding ticket money up front for a max speed licence and pushing your limit with as much protection as possible. Exorcism of your speed demon in a chapel meant for it. Big win long version The track : NCCar is all about smooth flat rounded ones. There are tricky ones like double apex decreasing ones and my favorite an almost 360 non stop circle. A very high horse power liter bike friendly track. Covid difference: I can almost say this was perfect place to be for a covid time entertainment. every one is restricted to their own individual canopy spaced at least 10 feets apart and carrying your own food. The rider meeting was open space short and spread out. Few including me still wore a mask and plus the quintessential funny look due to that from few. Otherwise there is never a moment where you interact or have contact with others, except the bathrooms where you have to be careful. The rider: The bike handled so beautifully that after couple warm up session I am literally passing everyone in novice without even trying. Esp on the outside of the long 360. (the only place where they allowed corner passing) Destroyed the pucks by the end of the day, again remember I am no track junkie and this technically first track day in a year and first time in this track in this bike. Still the bike gave me so much confidence and it’s so fluid. Body position is difficult compared to full sports bike but manageable. Race tuck and straight ways I will need suspension adjusted for me and a heavy oil mod for steering dampener. A set of adjustable rear set might help, I was able to improve my bad habit of toes sticking out a bit by the end of the day still not 100% confident in these rubber pegs and still dragging end of toe sliders. The bike: Tires full grip from power cup2 front and Michelin GP rear. Pics of the tires at the end of the day attached. Ran a higher cold pressure of 31 33 and it still gripped well and didn’t get destroyed. No mechanical issue, heating never went above 4 bars. The small screen definitely helps me. Brakes never faded but I hardly used it except for the long straights. But thats mainly due to the track layout. Everywhere else it was almost throttle play to keep it smooth. QS works best in this high speed high rpm Environment. Flips through the corners Easy, transition in S turns is a breeze, late brake into corners inside other high power bike and still no panic and can make the corner without running wide. All in all, makes it enjoyable and not intimidating to do a track day. Logistics: just a short word on this, bike is so light that this is the first bike I felt comfortable loading on to the back of truck. Very easy to just push it around and work with it. At the end of the day when your dead tired this was quite helpful. Final verdict: this bike just went from 10/10 in my favorite list to 11/10. it made me love something I never thought I would like, ... track days. Now I am kind of hooked. Definitely this bike made it a very enjoyable experience. Will be making at least a handful of track days if schedule and budget allows.
  8. That’s pristine ... paristine and rare 👍
  9. Good to see all the faces pop up, Few more folks reply to this thread and we can declare OR is back in full swing. After all this whole fiasco was not in vein
  10. Is there a way for it to be merged below the new thread Muckles started? I know he loves to plan stuff like these. That way rest of the folks who replied in there get notified of new reply and such.
  11. I think what @Muckles was trying to say is people with really loose flexible inner and thick outer can break and squeeze into the OR circle and feel at home. I believe Muckles is one of them, most folks who skim through the threads won’t get the inside jokes and banter and overall feel of this forum. And hence hard to get new members. But... the big butt question is, just like anything in this world. Where do we draw the line... thin margin between over moderation and having relaxed easy fun, may be just have the intro thread visible to new members until they have 3 new post something like that, by then we can do our welcomes and stuff and then show them the brutal battle royal waiting for them.
  12. Not trying to stir the pot, and I did not get to read the full thread before it was closed so I don’t know what transpired in there that it deserve to be closed. So I’m not pro or against closing as I don’t have enough information. Just as a continuation of discussion, posting up my thoughts. most forum esp OR is an eclectic group of folks coming together and sharing ideas / discussion / arguments etc a thread and it’s further reply constitutes a conglomeration of ideas from various individuals. The whole thread takes a meaning of it own, has a value of its own. Thus the Value of whole thread with its replies takes a far more value than just the opening post, opening post is just what it is ...an opening , like some guy who walks into a hall full of people and saying “hey what’s up, how’s weather” The thread belongs to everyone who posted in there and even a bit to every member in forum who joined / logs in daily and reads these. They all have their own value in keeping this place rolling. my humble opinion (which prolly doesn’t matter) is going forward in future let’s keep the threads open, if OP wishes to erase his post and thread mods can help him. Let the rest of the discussions which folks put effort to come up with ideas and took time to type it out stay here. If majority of thread is highly inflammable and pure toxic with no productive value what’s so ever, I agree closing and hiding makes sense. But for OR that’s a pretty high ceiling to touch. By now literally all of us know each other on personal basis and know exactly where the posts are coming from. From a funny angle or vicious Inner negative angle. As for this thread the last I seen was all productive posts, esp a planing and involving thread with many folks who are usually silent coming forward to participate to bring together a ride. That should have stayed and the requested posts or dubious post could be edited out. Anyways I don’t know the specifics nor the technical difficulties in achieving that, genuinely trying to discuss pros and cons.
