    Mini prepping. (Covid-19 thread)

    Indiana's two week lockdown started today. Judging by all the traffic in front of my house though, you wouldn't know it. Only "essential" businesses are supposed to be open, but I got an email from the local Honda/Kawasaki store listing their altered hours. Yeah, a motorsports store is essential. ­čśé

    My internet was out for most of the day, I suspect this is only the beginning...

    Mini prepping. (Covid-19 thread)

    We're still working, cause you know, Mission First ┬ę, but we've implemented minimum manning. Which means I get the next two weeks off. As long as we can still cross state borders, my riding co-worker and I are treating it like a vacation and will social distance ourselves down in the Smokies in a couple weeks as long as the weather is decent. The Air Force put a mileage limit on us until further notice, so my Philippines trip is cancelled. Which sucks. I've got a Filipina girlfriend over there....

    I like it, but I wouldn't buy one.

    I'm not skeered. I've even planning on visiting the Philippines in May.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Rode back home from Florida yesterday. Ran into rain and snowstorms in Tennessee, and a big snowstorm over Indy. 20 degree temps in Northern Indiana, but heated gear is wonderful.

    Would you own a classic bike?

    I love having old VW's, but man, cars are a PITA to work on. Bikes are so much easier. Sometimes I think about getting rid of the old cars and just playing with old bikes, but old bikes don't really give me a boner like old cars do.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    Winter sucks. I rode to Florida.
  12. Doesn't matter what I own, car or bike. I change the oil/filter every 5,000 miles. Keeps the math easy. Haven't lost an engine yet.

    What did you do to your bike today?

    These are Pilot Pures. First I had Pirelli Angels on the SF rims, but when the gold rims came in I had the Pilot Pures put on them. Iron Pony had them in stock.

    Earplugs for rididng

    I use expensive Westone earpieces (got a huge discount through work), but before those I used these earfuze and I really liked them. https://www.earfuze.com/ You don't have to get ones with earbuds, they sell them without so you can mold just earplugs.
