  1. Wow

    My thoughts exactly. I think the front end needs reworked, something about it just isn’t right. I think that is the ugly part of the bike.
  2. Random Thoughts thread

    I’m a big fan of the Trans Am. Great pic. 👍
  3. Lets fix this ear plug BS

    Update New York = upstate? The rest looks great. Thanks for doing this Jim.
  4. What did you do to your bike today?

    That’s awesome.
  5. Giving up riding: is it even possible?

    Thanks for the heads up Jim. I’m never near Millersburg. I typically try to control myself near Woodsfield. 556 is a bit troubling.
  6. What did you do to your bike today?

    Rode it to work so I can take advantage of the nice weather on the ride home. Thinking heated grips or gloves might be a nice addition for 40 degree morning rides.
  7. new fangled speeding ticket?

    Be sure to confirm this cost once it’s all said and done. That’s cheaper than my last ticket.
  8. Giving up riding: is it even possible?

    Jim what roads were you on? I agree with @Tpoppa I typically don’t see any LEOs except on highways and towns where the speed is below 55. I did earn a mandatory donation this year on 22 where it is only 2 lane but I was not necessarily shocked to see a state boy patrolling there.
  9. What did you do to your bike today?

    Rode the bike to work today. The ride in was a bit chilly, but ride home was great to forget about high schoolers. Continued my work on piecing back together my quad. I put the case back together the other night. Tonight I put in the oil pumps and the gears that drive them. I also installed the balancers and the primary drive gear. Thankfully I took a look at the starter clutch that came with the used flywheel I purchased on EBay. It was trashed so I swapped it with the one I had in my flywheel I broke. Hopefully I will have everything pieced back together soon and I’ll just be waiting on the piston and cylinder to arrive.
  10. Never turned it on all day. Wish I would have for that run on 536.
  11. 1 bike for street/track

    $300 too much to replace all plastic?
  12. 1 bike for street/track

    01 Honda F4i is FI
  13. I'm the guy Brodie met with his daughter at Deals. He is a good dude. It was great to see you on Saturday Brodie, sorry I had to take off at the scheduled time. I was pressed for time.
  14. Silly riding.

    Q I understand your frustration here, but my first thought is whatever floats their boat so be it. If it brings more attention to 77 surveillance and similar slabs that's okay with me. Hopefully the law will focus in on the slab and leave the twisty state routes alone so I can continue to enjoy the corners you speak of. When I'm on the slab I typically don't break the 10 over mark so not much concern for me being that unsuspecting fool. Secondly I'm sure there are plenty out there that think what I/we do in SEO is bonkers, so I try not to judge others actions much.
  15. Dunlop Roadsmart III's - $100 rebate during September

    Had a chance to push the RS3s today on 377, 676, and 26. Somebody mentioned they were curious to see if the tires would live up to the claims made about them. As far as grip and feel I think they are great. They don't stick like a Q3 but I never felt uncomfortable at all today, and I rode it like I stole it at times. The only question now is longevity. I can tell you I have 1400 miles on them so far and they show little signs of wear. They definitely will out last the Q3s I killed in 2000 miles.
