    Best "No Ads" Streaming Device?

    I have an Nvidia shield (first gen) and its been rock solid. Never used it for gaming. Always streaming. Also acts a a Plex server. Very power little device. If thats to expensive look at the Mi Box, Same thing minus the controller and gaming stuff.

    MSF Range Bikes

    Ya know, I would love to set have a pair of those new Hawk 250's that are Fuel injected. Just to see if they can take the abuse. Also the Honda grom would be a great bike in my opione. No not 12 of them for one class, but a pair of them in the fleet would be a good option and fit quite a few riders.

    MSF Range Bikes

    I personally think going forward we will have an issue with liquid cooled bikes. The new Honda rebles are liquid cooled. How well will this hold up to teaching? I have seen the old tw200 take one hell of a hit, and they keep on ticking. Now we run the risk of cleaning up a mess of coolant on the range. I think the new van van 200 would be a great trainer bike. I have road a few already. Pickings are getting slim for trainer bikes. Most are just over powered for training, although fuel in injection is welcome.

    bike Not another DRZ 400!

    I kinda want this out of my garage. If it goes into storage, it may never be seen again. Street legal DRZ400E. This is a true off road DRZ with the better carb. IT IS STREET LEGAL with a street title. If you message me asking if it has a street title, I will loose my shit. Im also very firm at $2000. Ill toss it into storage for any less. Brand new Tach/speedo, I pulled the card in the spring and cleaned it, and replaced all the old and brittle vent lines. New DOT tires and tubes. It does have Warp9 rims, with bead locks, but I did not install the bead locks when I put the tires on. Take a look at the pics, lots of aftermarket bits on the bike installed by previous owner. Bike runs fine. I had plans of doing a supermoto conversion but I dont have the time, or the space for another bike.

    aim expo columbus is this weekend

    I went yesterday, if you going for demos you had to go and be on the list by 10 it seems. I was able to demo that Yamaha ryken thing. The inside show was really what I was going for, and was better this year than last I thought. I also think there were more people than last. I hope it continues to return to Ohio.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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?
