    welcome, great choice of bike. How long have you been riding?
  4. didnt know where to post random riding related stuff, didnt want to make a thread for it each time i am sleepless and/or manic with some ideas. Anyways I really really reaaaaally wanted to ride this weekend. Was looking forward to that warmish weather and out of the blue they started saying rain. like 60-80% 😠 Any one know any vodoo magic to make it change. The front apparently is heading in starting thursday > moving to friday and saturday , this will bring in the warm weather but the rain as well. Now there is under 10% chance that the shift will be in a way the that the rain will start saturday evening only. Lets ride.. "the rain free window" @Jester_ 😆

    Ride 9/21

    Is there any mods that will move this to the right section. No respect for rules and etiquette in this place. On an unrelated note, if I have the tire by then may be in for the shenanigans. And on another note, since this was posted up in open public with bolivar as the spot I have a feeling this is going to become a mini dream bomb if the weather is going to hold up as good as it’s doing now 😆 Close to a decade ago same place around same time looks a lot different with 90% of the folks not active anymore

    I always fear this is what’s going to happen to me if I keep riding lol Thought cornering abs will be the next upgrade to safety net. May be not.

    Ride Saturday 9-7

    @FatWilbur @Skinny guy only the beamy boys left standing. You guys should still link up and ride. I can foresee a Bavarian broship blooming beautifully. The day looks so beautiful, I wish I could ride.

    Skinny, you have reset your riding preference in the last few months, I don’t think you realize it yet lol, the speed setting everything is reset not like when we first met. Your a Mach retard hooligan now. You be fine, you will keep up. Wish I could, but working. And need a tire soon.

    Anyone want to ride sat aug 31st?

    @FatWibur awesome, thx for the detailed review. I just came across the 2017+ R during my research into bikes with cornering abs and light weight. The vibration seems to be the prime complaint about this bike it seems. I thought the 2017+ they were fixed. Good choice with RR, respect for trying to stick to SS riding position at 50+ age.

    very nice, how was the 2017 s1000R for you ? was it reliable and comfortable since more upright? How does it compare to these new RR

    Good day of riding, nice to see all the folks before the season ended. That was prolly my last one for the season as I don’t see another opening till October. If it’s at least 50+ I will venture out below that just too much for my tropical blood. I was lucky the tires barely lasted till the return journey home need new tires and oil changed and prolly back to the tender it goes or sell it hehe. @FatWibur was that you and your friend we ran across in Cadiz? Hard to believe there would be two new 2020 RR in that small radius of living of canal Fulton

    Nice, I am guessing this is the bike you did an exhaust for after a loooong time right? I gather you really like it

    I am so used to upright position now, even on the tracer I put risers on top that’s the way I am trying to cheat on my left hand cornering issue. Instead of unlearning and learning the right way. When ever I turn hard left handers I end up pressing on top of the left handle bar instead of pushing it. (If that makes any sense) when I raise the handlebars high I stopped doing it and pushes it 😂

    Exactly, ninja400 is where you can draw a line I guess on how low vs practicality. 650 is a slight step up grom is a step down

    I been eying the z version for some time when I migrated from the thought that grom will be impractical for us neo guy. But was not sure about the power plant and package etc. when you are giving such stellar review I am really tempted to give this a try 😆

    Posting rides these days?

    I don’t think I have posted any rides in last couple of years. I discovered that helps me sleep better prior night heheh just wake up in morning look at clock and decide if I had enough sleep and if i have enough time to make it or not. Plus peel off early as soon as fatigue hits and not to worry about finishing ride etc. Not taking the responsibility has been a huge blessing. Before this i consistently posted rides for many years, even when I was in Michigan would ride down here and form a group ride. Never realized how much it consumes your inner energy. But the good thing I would comfortably claim I have met and rode with most of the active OR riding members in person over the years. And I Really really appreciate anyone who would post a ride and hats of to people who take the initiative. I hope more folks would do that. Which bring me to the point I am kind of in a grey zone. But been talking to lot of old members, and I am confused. Don’t know the right answer. Without posting rides will never get to meet new folks, newer riders. One of the many that might show will turn out to be a real good guy and perfect fit with us. I would have never met jerry if not for the very first dream ride. For that alone I considered taking the risk of posting rides and having squids or amateur riders who show up and pose a danger worth it. But the last time I bought along a “new guy” all the way from Michigan and he had a bad crash after which I kinda of changed camps. Now I lean more towards just keeping to you own circle and ride etc. But a part of me still thinks inviting new members to the forum and including new members to ride is the only way to keep the community going. I still remember 10 yrs ago the OR group ride I could join helped me a ton to improve myself. @Uncle Punk babysitting me on my first good group ride. Jerry did the same for @TimTheAzn. I am pretty sure we all have tales of someone showing us the ropes. Less and less rides posted up. We can literally see the dwindling number of active new and old members in here. Heck I still pull over random riders who seems like they know what they are doing and ask them to join forum and meet up for a ride. @Skinny guy was such a find, we would have never met unless took that leap of faith. Now One of my favorite rider to ride with and go stop for a fajita or a burrito. These days folks seem to communicate through group texts or pm and arrange rides. Stick to kind of small niche or their own style which makes perfect sense. Less reports of negative outcomes and mostly all positive. To be quite honest it’s very nice and perfect in a way that no headaches, full confidence in riders, easy to work with schedule and times etc. But this way we will never get to meet another new rider, and the new guy never gets to ride with a good group and learn/ improve etc That was a huge wall of text, and that too typed on phone 😡 Whats the right answer here? To post or Not to post open rides?
