    Pain while riding, or "I'm getting old"

    I'm not old, but any sort of slab longer than 30 minutes, makes my ass completely numb and I wanna shoot myself. Just get into the twisties. The constant back and forth prevents you from being sore from stagnant body parts. Even at 32, I always take ibuprofen before long all day rides to help. As for the Epic Ride... Join my ride down to the meetup. We won't be slabbing and it'll be tons of fun and you won't even realize how far south you are before you know it.
  2. Normally I would agree... and if it was just rain, I'd consider it. I've been watching it for the last week... It's only gotten worse on Saturday as the week went on and it's listing Thunderstorms all day. If you disagree with my decision to cancel, feel free to hop on your bike and go for a ride... But I'm not going to host an event and ask people to show with the risk of thunderstorms and rain the entire day. Sunday was equally as bad as Saturday for most of the week, but as we approached today, it's gotten much better on Sunday which is why I postponed it to that day.

    Dragon’s Rest Cabins Drama

    I don't care what the reasons are... if you own a business and can't maintain a professional attitude, you deserve everything that comes from it. I hope they go out of business, that's no way to treat anyone, especially paying customers.

    Amazon & Sportbikes4Hire.com

    I've honestly had no real issues with Amazon. Anytime I've had any sort of issues, they've been quick to fix my issues and always willing to throw something in for my inconvenience and I appreciate that. I'm a prime member so I don't know if that has anything to do with it.

    Ohio Riders Unofficial Mid-Ohio Track Day 2018

    Although not required for novice, I'd recommend if you don't already have a back protector to get one of those as well.
  10. You forgot the lightning rod. You'll likely need that too!

    Ohio Riders Unofficial Mid-Ohio Track Day 2018

    Dude anytime... You should have came out with us the night I crashed at your place. I would have loved to ride the Ducati and you could have romped around on the Z...

    Ohio Riders Unofficial Mid-Ohio Track Day 2018

    Yes, your first novice track day at Mid-Ohio gives you little time for anything regarding something like that. You'll come off the track, might check tire temp and adjust, immediately head to your rider's meeting which goes for about 20 minutes (entire advanced session) and you'll have about 10 minutes of time to think and prepare for your next session and then they'll be calling for novice riders to stage for the next session. The time between your sessions seems to go sooo fast. Any chance you get, I'd recommend relaxing. Make sure you drink lots of water and eat as light as possible. You definitely don't want food coma.
  13. In typical fashion, the weather looks to be complete shit. If things don't change drastically, the inevitable will happen.
  14. I agree with you, but we've had this discussion before. Any later and it runs into Deals Gap/Racing Season. Any earlier and we are riding on Ice...
