    Class 1 hitch ok to tow bike and trailer?

    Exact ramp i use with my HF trailer. It's great build quality and i ride the bike right up it since it's wide enough to put your feet down. Once in the trailer i put the TRS down and slide right into place.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Started the bike for the first time in a while. Let it idle while i mowed the grass. Stupid shoulder. I get my bone stimulater tomorrow though. Hopefully it works as good as the Dr says.

    Class 1 hitch ok to tow bike and trailer?

    I towed to the track for many years in a Scion xB (the bigger second version). It was never tow rated in the US but had a 1,600lb rating in Austrailia. I figured it was good enough. No issues at all with the bike and gear. I probably only had about 80-100lb of tongue weight. I would pick it up and pull the trailer to the car in the mornings. I tried 800lbs of topsoil once and it did not like that. Glad I only had to go about 10 miles. It was constant tug/pull the whole way, could never get it settled down.

    Ohio Riders Unofficial Mid-Ohio Track Day 2018

    DAMNIT!!!!!!!!! I will not be joining you guys on the 2nd. Just got an x-ray on the shoulder and it hasn't healed much since April. The Dr. is going to try to get me set up with a bone stimulater machine. She isn't sure if i will get approved for it though. Either way I go back in 3 months. By that point, it will be healed up as much as it's going to get and i'll get the all clear to resume all strenuous activities. So track riding and mountain biking are out for all of summer. Who wants to buy 4 gift certs!!!! I'll need to check to make sure they are still good for 2 years and i'll use them next year.

    Ohio Riders Unofficial Mid-Ohio Track Day 2018

    My shoulder x-ray and Dr. appt was canceled today. Scheduled for Friday afternoon now so i won't be able to register if i get the all clear. Hopefully there will be walk-up spots available. his is all dependent on my shoulder finally being healed up. I did feel some slight ache in it about two weeks ago so i'm not getting my hopes up too high.

    Looking for a decent hardtail for Isaac...

    Too bad you don't need a medium frame. Good luck with the search.

    All inclusive beach vacations

    I tried scuba in a swimming pool just to try it out and I couldn't get comfortable. I'm sure part had to do with the shitty equipment we were using. But i couldn't get over the fact you couldn't just stand up for air if something happened.

    PIRC 5-19 5-20

    I was originally planning on it. Really want to get on the new track. Maybe i'll be good to go for the one in July.

    Random Thoughts thread

    It happened on 2/10. It was a pretty large fracture, not just a hairline. Over the first four weeks it looked like it closed up about half way. X-ray at week 10 showed no change since week 4. They are not really sure what's going on. I go back end of June to see how it's progressing. I really don't know the next step if it's not healing. Doctor said they usually don't plate Scapula's since they are completely surrounded by muscle. But also Scapula fractures are pretty rare and not much literature about it out there. This was the first case my physical therapist has seen in her 25 year career. This is a pic of the original X-Ray on 2/11. Yes i tried to sleep it off thinking it was just a sprained muscle.

    Scapula is still fractured. Next x-ray is 6/25. No trackdays, mountain biking or anything that may involve an impact until then. Goodbye summer.

    OMRL Round 1 this weekend

    Whats all the low sides from? Dragging foot pegs/hard parts? I need to get into this but just don't have the time. Circleville is too far for a day trip.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Found out that if you lose power, the Shorai battery charger does not default to 'store' mode. The battery had enough juice to prime the fuel pump and that was about it. After getting the battery charged back up, started the track bike for the first time since last year. Took a few cranks but started up, the idle seemed off from what i remember. /shrug Cleaned the chain really well, looks brand new again. Still need to do an oil change and change out the anitfreeze.

    Random Thoughts thread

    Work rearranged the cube farm and now i sit directly beneath a HVAC vent. It is currently blowing cold air on me in an office that is already colder than any other part of the building. I already tried turning the damper but it's broken of course. Next idea is to take the diffuser cover off and shove a towel or something in the down tube.

    Random Thoughts thread

    I asked the guy what's on the chicken pizza (pizza by the slice place) and he said chicken bacon ranch. I assumed that was all that was on it. You couldn't see the onions at all. And usually I just get cheese or pineapple (let the hate begin) pizza. Don't care for pizza with 50 different toppings.

    Got chicken bacon ranch pizza for lunch. They failed to tell me there were onions on it. Pizza now ruined.

    Weight loss/ lifting/ dieting thread

    Got x-rays today and my scapula is still fractured. The gap is about half of what it was but definitely still there. I start PT next week but not allowed (probably can't anyways) to do any upper body strength training on my own. My last workout was on 2/8. It'll be interesting to see how much strength I lose between then and when I can officially start up again in another 4-6 weeks.

    OhioRiders Spotify Playlist

    I still use Pandora and the free XM trial subscription in the car. I'm too lazy to actually make a playlist and continuously update it as new stuff comes out.
