  1. Don't hate me just because I'm from Michigan

    "Justin's Friend".....careful... @2talltim may get jealous you start honing on his "buddy"
  2. New to the site...

    Welcome to the circus!
  3. Considering Android

    If you're just wanting to track steps, the GearFit 2 for the galaxy series works pretty well. I had one that I got for free when I had my note 7 ( Still the best damn phone I've ever had ) and it sent/received texts, alerts for phone calls, tracked steps/activity, and the Samsung Health app wasn't horrible.
  4. I gotta try them out to make sure they're acceptable first...sheesh...
  5. Well... I guess I better tell the midget strippers to NOT go where I told them....sorry bout your luck...
  6. Giving up riding: is it even possible?

    When I got divorced in 2010, I sold the the bike I had and didn't ride at all for about 5 years. I borrowed friends bikes for an occasional ride here and there when the itch would hit me. It wasn't until 2016 that I got another. I don't ride nearly as fast as I used to. Too many other things in life aren't worth me dying over by riding over the limit. But I still enjoy a good curvy road. It's more of an escape for me. Like others have said. It's a way to clear your mind of distractions and think of nothing else but the road in front of you or where you're headed for the day. If you feel you need to take a break, then take a break. No harm in following what your gut says to do.
  7. Bt-023 tires. Who's had them

    I've run 2 sets of the 023 and 1 set of the T30EVOGT. I like them for the price, but I somehow manage to destroy them in around 3500 - 4000 miles. I'm also pushing a 700+ pound bike with my 300# ass on it. I'm not an aggressive rider by any sense of the words. For the price, I'd say go for it. I'm looking to go with the RoadSmart 3 next season or possibly the Avon Storm 3DXM
  8. Oct 7 Saturday

    Speaking as the guy who is normally at the back of the pack, as well as the one they're waiting on, this is all great advice. If you've never been to the SEO, there are some roads that will reach up and bite you squarely on the ass. They can get pretty technical in a hurry. Don't panic. Remember to breathe. Try to have fun. They really are a great group of folks with lots of valuable information. They just don't wanna see anyone getting hurt. And if you've got thin skin and can't take a fair amount of ribbing...you're in the wrong place man. Good luck!
  9. Make The Most of Every Ride

    It was an absolute tragic scene to have to pass. Not something I wish on any friend or anyone who rides. May his pavement always be clean and his tires forever sticky.
  10. Motus MST Demo Ride

    I'd love to ride one of these...if nothing else for the experience.
  11. Equifux

    My credit is already in the shitter from my divorce. They want my bad credit they can have it....
  12. 9/3 Sunday SEO/ Marietta and Ohio River gradient ride

    I've got the boy half a day Monday. Depending on where you go and what time you leave I may be able to catch the express somewhere along the lines
  13. Anybody riding Sunday 8/27

    Is this the infamous "spider bite" issue from all the FJR forums? If it is, there used to be a member that sold a harness that remedied this problem. @Howabusa on the 16th, there is going to be a Tech Day around Marysville with some pretty FJR smart folks if you're interested on going up.
  14. K&N filter failures

    Damn dude. Way to keep control. I too have been using K&N for years with no issues at all. Guess that's about to change and the one I have on stand by will go in the trash.
  15. SEO Ride 08/19 or 8/20?

    You could take tomorrow off and head thru Kentucky with me...
