    ORDN stickers?

    This may be a big ask, but my mother in law is getting decent at cutting out decals on her cricket machine. Could I bum the digital off ya so I can have some cut for my bikes?

    MSF Instructors

    Motorcycle Ohio now uses an "In House developed" program. The state in which it was modeled after escapes me (I want say Utah, but I'm not sure, it's been several years now). The program has been heavly modified at this point, and really is unique to Ohio. The main difference this program offers, from my point of view, is we really aproch new riders with a fast pace learning. The idea here, is to get people moving, and onto a quick speed at the start to help with balance, and clutch control. You will hear a coach repeat over and over at the first 2 exercises "Good launch, Brisk acceleration". As far as becoming a coach and my recommendation, if you really REALLY, like motorcycles and think this is for you, go buy a bike and ride it. Don't be a coach. I hardly get time to ride any more, as most of my time is teaching, or I'm with my family. We don't really ride (us coaches) during a class anymore, our priority is teaching. Be a coach because you feel it's important to be safe, and help new riders get into the sport. Also prepare yourself to deal with someone that needs to be Coached out of motorcycles. Any questions, just ask.

    Renting Your BIKE?

    I just got back from Huntsville for business , and when I was down there, I looked around on this app, and could not find a bike I would care to rent for a day. I also noticed another add coming across my Facebook, for another company renting bikes, but the name slips my mind. For me, a company like Turo needs to get into this. Someone that has some better experience with Ridesharing before I get serious with is.

    part Track day pass

    From what I can see, I have booked myself solid again, for the entire summer. I have a track pass that I purchased late 2017 and will be valid until November this year. I really wanna go, but life happens. Im only asking what I paid $157.50.

    Renting Your BIKE?

    Thanks for the input... So far I have not officially "listed" the bike. The liability part really puts it off.

    So this is what the fuss is all about

    Most likely I was your instructor. Do yourself a another favor and book another class, Perhaps just the Returning Rider course as just a refresher. Statistics show that people that have been trained more that once getting killed on a back is FAR FAR less likely. Once it warms up, Ill be getting the bike out. Actually thinking maybe Sunday ill get mine out and wash it. Some animal trashed it in the garage last winter. Welcome, Keep it shiny side up.

    Renting Your BIKE?

    Forgot to mention what your making on this. If you sign up, you will see for yourself. The Owner makes 70% of the rental fee. So the if I set my bike at $100/day, I would make $70, they recommended discounts for multi days. AND you can rent out gear also. I see the befit of have some old Helmets around for an extra $5 Bucks.

    Renting Your BIKE?

    Ok here I got one for you! An add popped up on my Facebook feed for bike rental.... aka "Bike Sharing", https://www.riders-share.com/ . I have never seen any add worth pursuing from Facebook before, but this one took my attention. So I signed up and started asking questions (i dont have to go live with the add until im ready), and reading into it. So far there are 2 other Bikes in this part of Ohio on there. Insurance? Well it sounds like the renter is covered up to $15K and the deductible is $2k, and the renter is given the option to "buy extra insurance" which is basically lowing the cost of that deductible for them. I messaged them about this, and if there was a claim, Riders-share, would handle the deducible to the insurance company and the "bike owner" would only need to file the claim. Its all handled through Riders-Shares insurance policy. As far as letting someone else ride my bike? IDK, its the liability thing that has me second guessing this thing. If someone wraps it around a tree, can they point a finger at me because say.... "chain was loose". It states in the fine print, I would have the right of turning away anyone I felt wouldn't be safe, or I dont think could handle the bike. To me, I was thinking of trading this bike I currently ride in on a new one, Its a GSX650F. But really, it would make a decent rental. Its got new tires, and is very reliable, looks fast, but not GSXR fast, and is actually quite comfortable. Its really not worth all that much and if I could make a few hundo on it a year, it would enjoy keeping it around. Whats your take on this "Bike sharing". Its much like Turo for cars.

    OR Bluetooth communication choice

    What could i use to hand to someone in a chase car? Anything? Would the app on the phone allow them to talk/hear without a headset?
