    Cycle Gear Columbus

    Went for a ride with Dad yesterday. First thing he says is, "I've been working on my wheelies". He loves doing them now. Is disappointed he can't hold them for long, but I think he'll get it before too long.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Took Izzy to play with her friends. Wide open 6th gear through the kink on a 30 year old bike sure is fun! Yep, that's a 2stroke Aprillia in the background.

    Ear Plugs, What are you using?

    These. Free at work, I have about 3000 pairs floating around pants and jackets and helmets and on my dresser... Katie said something the other day, probably need to throw some away.

    Cycle Gear Columbus

    Cycle Gear opened up a shop in Columbus this weekend and I stopped by today. Pretty small, by Pony standards, but they had a nice selection of helmets, jackets, leathers, some parts and tools, etc. (only saw K&N filters ) I tried on a set of AlpineStars Missile leathers that fit well and bought some base layer pants and shirt. I talked with the manager there and they offer discounts for recent "graduates" of the state safety program of 10 or 15% and a better set of pricing for coaches. Pretty cool. She seems real interested and able to beat Pony pricing or take back returns from stuff ordered online. Still probably continue to work with RidersDiscount for a lot of stuff but its good know there is another player in town, I'll be back. They do host bike nights semi regularly, based on their location, I wonder what that'll be like! I sense a new meet spot for acceleration testing. When I was getting set to leave, a contingent from Columbus Riders showed up, first Pani V4 I'd seen in the wild, an S1000RR, and a couple ZX-10s.

    Ohio Riders Unofficial Mid-Ohio Track Day 2018

    When I went a couple weeks ago I had TWO bikes on our 16' car trailer! A little overkill, but hey, it gets the job done.

    What do YOU need?

    Welcome, glad you're on here. TJ will help you find what you need.

    Would you ever buy a bike without test riding it first?

    If it's not a Pani V4, or some other ultra premium sport bike, they ought to let you ride one, or find a recent used one to demo. I bought my Daytona without riding one, but I did ride Tim's previous gen around the paddock at Mid Ohio to get some idea. So whatcha getting???
  11. Sounds like you all had a good time, sorry I missed it. Beautiful day to be outside!
