  1. What did you do to your bike today?

    I attempted a mock up template for an LED Light bar idea I have. I still think it'll work....come hell or high water
  2. Lol @ Ducati owners!

    I wonder if they'll get that one English dude to be their spokesperson...what's his name....Beanstalk Cucumberpatch?

  5. NC helmet law change

    Here's my .02, not that it matters to anyone else: If you ride a motorcycle, you know the inherent danger presented to you. Therefore you should be able to chose if you want to wear a helmet or not. I, for one, value my head and my face. it may not be the prettiest or the smartest one out there, but it's mine. I'll take care of it by wearing a helmet, and a full face one at that. I know I stand a better chance of survival and not being a vegetable or looking like Sloth from The Goonies should I crash. It should also be said that by signing the title or whatever for your motorcycle that you acknowledge said inherent risks and should you decide to not wear any protective gear, that you assume all liable risk and injury. And if you take a header (pun intended) that you're responsible for yourself and whatever medical issues arise from your own doings. Don't live off of my paycheck, there are already enough wastes of space doing that. Again..this is my opinion, and mine only.

  10. Ear Plugs, What are you using?

    I used to use a kind called Sparkplugs by Moldex I think was the brand. But now I just use whatever I can get my hands on from work. It took a while to get used to riding with them, but now I can't stand to ride without them.

    I ran the intermediate group. No classes taken. First time on the track. In the rain. Not my brightest move, but I survived..lol

    I just ran it. If it would've been dry I'd have done the class, but it was so low of attendance that I hopped into the intermediate group and just went with it. Still passed people even as slow as I was going.
  13. What did you do to your bike today?

    I may be up for a ride somewhere. Not sure of Saturday or Sunday.

    Welcome to the circus! And the track is a great place to hone your skills! I've only been on it once...on a cold rainy October day...but I'd love to get back on it.
  15. Three Shoei (tachi?)

    @hiro Not sure where you're located at, but make a trip somewhere that you can try each one on for the best fitment. I prefer the Shoei Neotec over just about everything except my Suomy Apex or Spec 1R. If I could squeeze a Sena into the Suomy I'd have gone with that, but decided that a modular would fit my needs the best at the moment.
