    What did you do to your bike today?

    I think that's why Suzuki was giving them away with the new purchase of the 2014 V-Strom. The flat rack that replaces the rear seat is a $$$Hepco-Becker$$$ pice that works great with soft tail bag or dry bag.

    I agree Tim. Sometimes our needs must be met. I got this box free when I purchased my 2014 V-Strom. I have only use it for trips to the shooting range but it's a nice item to have on hand.

    Saturday. Max Power joined me and two others for an ADV ride from our breakfast spot at the old town diner in Laurelville to the Ohio river in Proctorville, OH. and then back north to Jackson where we split to go home. Great weather with cooler temp's and very little dust. I turned 270miles with 7 hours of move time on all sorts of road surfaces. Short 8min Video of the road conditions.

    Adventure Ride Saturday 29th.

    The Weather this week looks wet wet wet. BUT SATURDAY! the 29th. Looks like a great day for a ADV Ride. Partly sunny, with a high near 76. The gravel will be moist and tractable. Anyone interested? or have something they want to try out. 1. Suggestion: Breakfast Laurelville (old town diner) TOT Section #8 Laurelville south to Oakhill, if time permits continue section #9 to Proctorville and return Section #10 north to Athens SR50-Home. Option: At Oakhill checkpoint 8/9 go direct east and take #10 to Athens. This will cut some time off. I have not ridden section 9 or 10.

    Had a great ride down to the river to see Moth Man. My first time was in 2011 when we moved here to Ohio. Man, People are getting weirder or I am just a old fart. Some of the costumes and outfit are wild. 691S out of Nelsonville connected to 356 at the 56 intersection and a new one for me was 143S all the way to 7 at the river. 143 has new clean asphalt and flows fast. 81deg warm at the festival was to much so made a walk thru and road curves home. 210 miles for the day. Load out Moth man 2018

    I will send you a photo of the block. Very simple design. Bolt holes have to be the right size. Jacob hawk can make a set.

    Yes they were from that shit company. Order Date: Sat, Apr 26, 2014 1 | KZ1-LFPGBLKS-BLK | Lowering Foot Pegs Blocks | $47.00 | $47.00 Color: Black (black anodized) Model Year: 2013 Model The blocks were designed for a Ninja that has a smaller mount bolt. I had to drill oversize to fit the block on the bike. So I wrote them a nasty response. They must have check and found I was right. I received your lowering kit, Did not fit "out of the box" had to drill oversize the peg mount and Peg's and instl. bushing. junk! just another American half ass company with sub- standard Quality Control measures in place. please take my $67.75 and hire someone that can do the job right. Or make household decorations. Leave motorsports and stay away from Aviation. re: Our lowering foot peg blocks do fit. Instead of getting upset and using foul language, I'd recommend following our online installation instructions and contacting us beforehand, if you did not understand how to install the lowering blocks. We would have gladly assisted you and you would be a happy customer now. Obviously, you tried to jam them in, whereas the blocks install from the side, as the sticker on the packaging warned. We have many customers who have them installed correctly on their Z1000. You are the only one who had a problem. It really is a shame that you resort to blaming others for not understanding how to install things.

    Off all week, who wants to ride

    Old Bubby, You are old and broken and I personally care for you and want you to be happy. I think you should just look for a well sorted gold wing. I will still ride with you as long as I don't have to stare at a stuffed animal on your top box. Just think, Your wife may even start riding with you on nice Wing with passenger arm rest. Try thinking of your passenger or should I say Co-Rider in Wing speak. Plus a trailer could carry all the cases of Old Milwaukee you need for a weekend.😁 I will buy you your first vest so you can start sewing patches on it before next years "Wing Ding Event"
