    2018 MT10(Guess the New Owner)

    I didn’t notice that. But, now that I do...my bill’s in the mail.

    2018 MT10(Guess the New Owner)

    Took her out for the maiden voyage today and good lord...what a motorcycle!! Sorry Mike...I know we talked in person at IP as I was looking for my FZ/MT. Just turned out that I bought Justin’s instead of a new one.

    Lets fix this ear plug BS

    Interesting. I wonder where my usage falls. I use noise isolating earbuds with foam for the dual purpose of hearing protection and communication, sometimes music. They’re always in for hearing protection and if I’m not wearing them, I’m wearing actual ear plugs. But I do occasionally listen to music. I guess if I make the argument that the sole use is for hearing protection, I have an affirmative defense with the bill as written.

    Lets fix this ear plug BS

    This may have been asked. What is the wording of the bill, Jim? Only allows hearing protection? Anything on earbuds? Thanks for your work on this! These people serve at our behest. Not the other way around. I know too many old timers that suffer hearing loss. To get a ticket for protecting our hearing is tyranny, plain and simple.

    2019 Gap Trip.

    I’ll be there. Either staying at Tuskegee Motel or chipping in on a cabin. If I can get firm commitments, I’ll reserve a cabin. So if anyone wants to join....let me know.

    2018 Fall Gap Trip?

    I doubt I make this. Coming in late Thursday and riding down was doable, but with the forecast the following few days....especially Saturday, I may hold off and save the days for better weather. May never come... but 90% chance of rain and temps in the 50s exceeds my threshold for discomfort.

    You can take the Tuono, if you want. Or I take the Tuono and you ride the FJR. Its an option, anyway. Might be a chilly option.

    2018 Fall Gap Trip?

    This should easily have blown out to sea by the time we get there mid to late next week.

    2018 Fall Gap Trip?

    As it stands now, I’m meeting you guys in Marion on Thursday night. I’ll be slabbing down on the FJR. Probably will get in around 12-1. Plan is to room with Pauly. Should be a fun way to cap off the season!

    Possible. Let me see what I can work out.

    2018 Fall Gap Trip?

    Where are you guys staying Friday night? Getting this trip changed is looking somewhat difficult. Currently I get in at 5:30 pm on Thursday.

    2018 Fall Gap Trip?

    I'll be at a conference in LA and I'm supposed to get back the 18th at 5pm. But I could take the red eye the 17th and be back in time. Let me see what I can work out.

    2018 Fall Gap Trip?

    I had a WV trip planned that fell apart due to weather. If there’s still room in this trip, I’d love to join.

    Yeah, I saw you. I mentioned to Tony that I didn’t think anyone else has a yellow F4i with tail bags lol!

    Blue Ridge Parkway to the gap

    I rode the BRP last year with my wife for a hundred miles or so, then took 421 back North and spent the night in Bristol. While I had a ton of warning about LEO presence, I didn’t see any during my time on it. And yes, the speed limit is low. But I stayed at comfortable speeds of 10-15 over, and got lucky to not have haf any trouble. I’ll tell you though, that pavement and those curves just beg you to take them faster. Its a beautiful road. And mid-week, traffic wasn’t bad. But just the threat of a ticket kind of tempered my enthusiasm. Still worth the ride though.
