There is a lot of unused tire on some of those bikes....

I’m sure it’s because they were all new tires and were just getting scrubbed in.

Based on his description I'd also assume that.

Unfortunately Not enough right stuff here for using the tire fully. Unless we travel 3-4 hrs north to mountains

Nah just 35 40 mph corners, clean open corners, nothing like 25-35 stuffs we have in Ohio. Bike mostly stays up for most of these.

Fast is relative.  There's always someone faster.  And there's always someone who thinks your medium is too fast :lol:

Queer MotoGP Street Fantasy... lol

 

Nivin, glad you found some riders to train. Go easy on them.

R1 safety-wired. New tires ordered, new spring for rear shock will be put on this week.

Grom got a new high-flow oil pump, and some 300V. I raced the shit out of it Sunday. Grid size was crazy, I think race 2 was 37 people.

It was a mixed bag between carry-out, drive-thru only and limited sit down eating. Some places never reopened. Over all it was good, we ate well and of course the roads were amazing.

I just put new street skins on my Strom last week. A Appalachian back road asphalt burn could be just what the doctor ordered. Great Suggestion.

Installed the Rox risers on the VStrom after dinner tonight.  From a quick loop around the neighborhood it feels much better.  Hopefully I can get out for a longer ride tomorrow and see how my shoulders feel after a few hours in the saddle.  

Also, New front tire mounted on the Wing and Coolant flush completed.    Looking forward to hitting the road on June 19th. 👍
