  1. I picked up two ttr125s with the larger wheels (19" front). All 3 girls are now set for a while. We are now testing the limits of the n+1 theory.
  2. We work on a little bit of all kinds of heavy civil construction. We mostly work in Central and Southern Ohio.
  3. I took the Wing to Washington County to look at some slip repairs this morning. It's an adventure bike, not a dirtbike. I did ride through some wet clay. I still can't believe it didn't go down.
  4. This is a great time to ride bikes. It's cooler and the scenery is nice as the leaves change color. It is an even better time to buy a bike. I try to buy all of my bikes in the fall and winter. Good luck with the search. The riding in Noble County is far superior to the riding in Licking County.
  5. Everybody likes different bikes. I really used to like riding cruisers. I still have a cruiser, but I tend to ride my touring bikes much more often. Ride your ride and enjoy it. Honda can make some really reliable bikes.
  6. My daughters are quickly outgrowing their TTR110s. Unfortunately, it is difficult to go to MC shops to have them sit on different bikes to see what they like. The stock in MC shops is not good right now. I came across a project KLX140, and all the girls really like riding it. I have seen a couple of TTR125s on FB Marketplace, but they have all had issues or sold quickly. Are their any other electric start bikes that I should consider for my daughters (other than the TTR125 or KLX140)? Does anyone have a TTR125 or KLX that they are willing to part with?
  7. Those are great photos Rick! Nothing beats creating memories with your kids!
  8. Thanks for the suggestion. We were initially thinking of staying at Franklin or Fontana Dam. If we stay in Franklin, thinking about taking Wayah Rd toward Cherohala. Then doing Cherohala each way, then Dragon and Foothills Parkway to Townsend to US441. I know that we can ride a long time in the mountains. If we stay at Fontana Dam, start with the Dragon toward Foothills Parkway, Townsend, and US441. We would end the day with a trip each way on Cherohala. I really like Dragon and Cherohala really early or really late for less traffic. My daughter is so excited!
  9. Ok. We don't have reservations yet. I wasn't sure where to stay and when. We are rolling out of Nags Head, NC early on Friday morning. We're planning on riding US64 at Hendersonville to Franklin, NC. We are going to have dinner at Cafe Rel. Then, we haven't decided where to stay that night. We thought about Fontana Dam or Townsend, but that is a lot of riding for my daughter. On Saturday: Cherohala, US441 through Smoky Mountain National Park (hopefully with Kingman Dome), and US129. We haven't decided where to stay on Saturday night either.
  10. Put them both in the driveway! Even with the upcoming 3 car garage, I won't be parking in the garage until my daughters quit riding.
  11. Sounds good to me Jaime. I'll have my 11 yo daughter with me. Are you guys staying at Fontana Dam?
  12. Clearly, you'll have no excuse for not having a motorcycle. Congrats!
  13. The housing market is crazy. Hopefully, I'll have a new garage(and house) in a couple more months.
  14. I have been thinking about it for a while. I tried to pair an extra SMH10 to my 30k, but I was unsuccessful. After 15 minutes of listening to the 2 headsets chiming, I ordered the Cardos. How long until you get another bike?
  15. I've had enough with some of the frustrations with Sena. I have a pair of Cardo Pack Talk Bolds on order. I hope that we like them.
  16. I'll be in the area from 7/9 to 7/11. I'm taking my daughter around the area for a couple of days on the Wing.
  17. Thanks! I've got my daughters' season ending softball tournament this weekend.
  18. If the offer still stands, I would like to take your bike for a spin some time. I took two of my daughters up to Iron Pony today to purchase some next size riding gear for an upcoming trip to the OBX. They are now down for the new Wing. I may be able to get one sooner than I was thinking.
  19. Tonik is making a good point about considering a Wing. They are not much larger than the Connie. If I didn't love my Connie so much, I would have one. It will be the one bike that I get to 100,000 miles, I think I am close to having my daughters talked into the new Wing. They are nice! It will be my next touring bike.
  20. Where are you located? You can take my Connie for a spin. I was also trying to decide between the FJR and Connie. I found a good deal on the Connie, so they is what I bought. I couldn't be happier. My brother has the FJR, and he really like it. You can't go wrong with either bike.
  21. You guys are going to have a great time! Enjoy the trip!
  22. There are quite a few people on here that ride sporty touring bikes that track up the miles. The ST1300s are great bikes.
  23. The battery replacement on the old TPMS isn't too bad. I'm on my 2nd battery on each wheel. I like the peace of mind of having TPMS. It has alerted me that my tire had picked up nails in on 2 separate occasions over the years.
  24. A switch to a slip on exhaust and an ECU reflash will gain you 4 to 5mpg. It will also awaken the motor in the lower rpms. I average low 40s during commuting and riding on the superslab. I refuel around 200 miles, but wouldn't feel uncomfortable going to 225 to 230 miles. Playing in the twisties will obviously drop the mileage.
  25. It will also change your perception of distance. Riding all day to go to far off places is no big deal.
