    Random Track Talk

    We still have two spare bikes for rent (will get you 4-6 races) if anyone wants to give it a go without having to go full on investment.

    Motorcyclist Killed by Lightning

    When it's your time, it's your time... I've always wondered if those who are struck by lightning and survive think about the fact that they were as likely to get struck by lightning as they are to winning the lotto... and that they got struck by lightning.

    2019 Gap Trip.

    He certainly is understanding... the problem, our one capable guy in Columbus just quit unexpectedly and that leaves the ball rolling into my court. I could leave for a week but the amount of work that would pile up would leave me buried and I have a week long trip to Calgary with my wife and brother/sister-in laws that I couldn't do if I took this trip off too.

    Track day pass

    I have a buddy who might be interested. I will message him and see what he says. He's been wanting to do his first track day and he may pull the trigger. I will let you know.

    Mid-Ohio Cherry Popping . . .

    Awesome man! Just be careful, MidOhio can fill up in advance and I'd hate to see you come all that way and not get a spot. You should call in advance and schedule it to make sure you get the spot.

    MSF Instructors

    The class is much more real life riding orientated. Exercices such as Tight turns from a stop, interacting with traffic, U-Turn only to the left (not the figure 8 box)... Lane changing, etc.

    Is there an epic ride this year or has it been cancelled?

    Still not sure why anyone would want me to organize this ride... all it means is that it will rain that weekend.

    Helmet coms 2019 - noob questions

    if you are in intercomm mode its always Vox, but you can set it up to be PTT. I think tim is saying if you are just connecting to one other person you can connect and disconnect to them by the press of a button so you can choose when you want to be heard or not.

    Helmet coms 2019 - noob questions

    Yes, Nivin, I have tons of experience with big group intercomms. Answer is Yes... and once you break the chain, it can be a pain to reconnect the chain without restarting the whole process. Using the SENA app helps with group chat as long as the leader knows what he is doing. If you break the chain, the leader can stop the whole conversation and restart the group convo through the APP and it usually works okay (provided everyone is back within range) ---- This is why the 30K is much better. It utilizes a new mesh technology (star topology) where everyone is connected to everyone and if you get disconnected, everyone else remains connected and once the user who got out of range comes back within range, he can autoconnect back into the conversation. Only downside is that everyone has to have the 30K for this technology to work. A lot of other communication systems already utilize the mesh technology. ....and my big complaint is trying to connect a SENA 30K to SENA 20S through the old school bluetooth technology because the 20S app won't pick up any 30K's.... There may have been a firmware update over the winter to fix this, I haven't checked...

    I have been in several rain storms and no problem, but got stuck in a serious rainstorm once and it fried my sena and 2 of my friends as well... SENA did cover under warranty.

    I love my RST Gloves as well. Super well constructed, comfortable out of the box and have handled quite a few OMRL crashes. They are gauntlet gloves though so not sure if that's what you're looking for. They were $70 through RD last year.
