  1. What did you do to your bike today?

    That sounds correct. He said it was the evo with a little engine brake added and a reduction for the first 10% of throttle. He's calling it the Mountain Runner flash. Suppose to smooth it out some more in and out of the twisties compared to the evo with the same hp&tq gains, fuel economy and throttle control. Smoothing it out was the reason I wanted the flash. Steve said he wanted to offer the new flash because he would be bringing it to market very soon. That guy really seems to know what he's talking about. Can't wait to get it back.
  2. What did you do to your bike today?

    Yep. Asked for the evolution flash but Steve called me and suggested his new flash that he just finished up.
  3. What did you do to your bike today?

    Both bikes cleaned up and the ecu for the big girl sent off to Florida for a flash.
  4. Bought a freight train

    It'll be a couple weeks before he gets to it but I had a spare seat so I sent one to him along with a backrest I need recovered.
  5. Bought a freight train

    Thanks fellas. I'll be sure to pick up the items you mentioned just in case. Terry has my seat so looking forward to getting it back. No doubt I'll be thru this thing pretty good over the winter I get bored and can't stop myself. I figure it's gonna be in the garage a long time to come so I may as well know my way around it.

    This^^^ Did this in August and it was awesome. Day 2 we headed down thru Hot Springs and across 28 to the gap. Great ride. I slabbed down in June and that was a long ride.
  7. Bought a freight train

    Good to know. Guess it will all depend on how bored I get this winter.
  8. Bought a freight train

    Yep. Guilty as charged. I believe you have a seat done by Terry's custom? Any complaints? I'm in the process of ordering one now

    At least that's what it feels like. I've always had naked or nearly naked bikes but decided to pull the trigger on a Connie 14. I think it was a good decision. This whole wind protection thing is fucking awesome aside from a little trouble judging speed compared to a naked bike. This thing is super stable and smooth at speed and handles well enough to give 1/4" chicken strips the first time out on fresh rubber. All kinds of power doesn't hurt either. Took it over to the river Saturday and it's not my zrx but it's not bad at all in the twisties for a touring bike. 800 and 536 were plenty of fun. The linked brakes seem to be the biggest downfall for me (parking lots and such) but I have no doubt I'll get used to them eventually. Also having to do the 15k mile service including valve adjustment over the winter bites a bit. Planning two trips to Tennessee and a trip to Florida next year so it was time to find a more appropriate bike. Mostly just really excited about this thing and wanted to share.

    I've only been to Fontana one time and that was the June gap trip. Thought it was ok not the greatest but not bad. No cell service kinda sucked but right on 28 was a plus. Stayed at Townsend gateway a week in August and really liked it. There's cell service, a couple really good restaurants, grocery store,laundromat and even a nice coffee shop all within a mile. The rooms are very clean and there's even a fire pit out beside the pool. There's plenty of good road heading out of Townsend. Across foothills and left to the dragon (30min) or right and around to the skyway. Also I believe it's called fighting creek rd that takes you over to the bypass and thru the park. There both decent places but for my money I already booked in Townsend for both my trips next year.
  11. Speed safe fellas. Football game this morning but maybe I'll bump into some of you this afternoon. Will be getting the Connie out this afternoon and headed toward the river.

    Plan to take the entire week off so I may be heading down early.
  13. Bt-023 tires. Who's had them

    Thanks for the input fellas. Got em today along with new rubber for the zrx. 2 sets of tires $270 after rebate. Can't bitch about that.
  14. Bt-023 tires. Who's had them

    Might be the ticket then. Just looking for something to get thru fall and early spring. Then slap some nice rubber on before gap trip.
  15. Bt-023 tires. Who's had them

    I find them much more interesting than oil threads.
