  2. gear Pay It Forward: Gearless Riders, Read This

    I have (thanks to another OR member) a used Scala Rider Q2 Multiset Pro - i.e. a pair of wireless helmet communicators. They work great for helmet-to-helmet communications and pair up with phones and GPS units, and even can be used for bike-to-bike purposes. The catch is that they don't do well with newer Sena and Scala intercoms that most everyone is using in groups these days. They are great for listening to music, making phone calls and talking with your passenger. Still in the box with all of the components and user manual. https://www.amazon.com/Cardo-MultiSet-Intercom-Helmet-Communication/dp/B004O40XGE/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8 I am in Columbus and can meet you somewhere if you want them.
  3. I went to this at the Dayton Air Show and you could only ride the bikes in the parking lot, not on the street. Max was about 20 miles per hour. Pretty disappointing to have demo rides advertised but only be able to ride in the parking lot.

    I'm interested in those riding jeans if you still have them. I am in Columbus but could come your way sometime.

    Scott, I am interested in the Scala set. I live in Hilliard and can come your way when convenient for you. Greg
  6. What did you do to your bike today?

    Took a ride to Huntington, WV and really enjoyed 141 and 775 through the Crown City Wildlife Area. Took 93 northbound home and enjoyed the stretch between Lisman (south) and Oak Hill (north). On a separate ride, enjoyed the fresh pavement and sweeping turns of 79 north of Newark.
  7. How would you invest your kids gift money?

    Professional advisers that are free to you are paid by the "products" they have to offer and are very biased towards their own earnings. I have had a few bad experiences with the recommendations these advisors make that benefit them more than me. You pay fee for service advisors and therefore they are less biased about the investment options they recommend. But they are very expensive related to my assets and certainly the funds your kids received. I recommend investing those funds on your own. The 529 plans are educational for kids in that they list the investment option you have chosen, the unit price, number of units held, etc so you can track the growth of their investments. The 529 does have tax advantages not available through other investments and the funds can be used in a variety of ways. I agree the other investment option is a CD but rates for those are low right now too. A savings account is also a good educational tool for kids when they get a bit older. Good for you for being so thoughtful about those funds.
  8. Epic Ride Video and Picture Thread

    I put some video together from the ride. Dash mount is the slow group and helmet mount is the medium group.
  9. Thanks to Derek for organizing an Epic Ride and Hellmutt and Snot for running a great medium group. Enjoyed my first run with OR and looking forward to more.
