    Hey Tpoppa

    Exactly, let's get back to the OP.

    Hey Tpoppa

    No fucking clue. People laugh when I tell them I'm riding a 60k+ mile Ducati and my brand new Triumph has been in the shop for 6+ months.

    Back Protectors

    I have a Forcefield protector like the Pro L2, its a couple years old, so may not be the exact model. Looks the same though. I love it, pretty comfy, I know it works when I've been run over mini racing. After my collarbone this year, aside from dialing it back a bit, I will be headed for an air vest in addition to my Forcefield. I don't want to try to cram more stuff inside the suit than I already have. All the big guys are going for the air bag stuff, and the vests seem to be pretty good. Is the chest protector worth it? Not until you need it! If you can fit it in your suit, why not? I wouldn't worry about the heat, 20 minute big bike sessions and 15 minute races. I doubt you'd notice much of a difference. If you were taking it touring, something more to think about. The cost of good protection is nothing when compared to even a minor injury. I could have picked up any Dianese suit, the best boots and gloves, and had money to party with what I spend on this damn collarbone.

    Posted that pic in the other thread, but Andy is about to pass my ass, easily. Drive or no drive, 9 years newer suspension and +100HP will lay a beat down. It's fun to pretend I can hang in there with him, until he gets around, then woosh! See ya! Love the second one of his CBR though, you can see the heat messing with the air coming out of the exhaust. I'm sure there is a science-y term for that.

    Are we still playing guess the new bike?

    I think you need more stands.

    Haha. Did they really call me? Had to get parts down to North Carolina so one of our great American automakers can get their line back up and going. Really bummed I missed it.

    Never done anything other than vote before. Real glad for the opportunity to be around when this important bit of legislature is getting worked on. Thanks for being a leader on this, @Tonik.

    I was hoping this was a Warriors reference. Was not disappointed.

    If I came, would I get to go into the hearing or would my position only be giving handys and bringing snacks?
