Hi from Guernsey County

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody. 

I'm from the Cambridge OH area and I ride a 2009 Kawi ER6N. It has a Two Bros exhaust and power commander with Pirelli Angels. 

I joined to learn about everybody's favorite places to ride, and because I want to do track days to figure out how to properly ride my bike. 

I read the stickies on track days and it seems I have a lot to figure out and do to my bike before I can show up and do one. 

Pic below is a ride I did yesterday. 146 to Zanesville, then 555 (bought a Triple Nickel shirt!) down to 78 to 83. All of that is right in my area. 

Thanks

Eric

If you are going to Mid Ohio, you have very little to do. Tape the lights and mirrors. A dab of RTV on oil and coolant caps, and oil filter.

Full details here, you would be in the novice group.

Thanks a bunch for the link!

I'll have to look at getting gloves and leathers at a decent price. I'm assuming Iron Pony has some in stock I could try?

Yes. They have some great deals on closeout IXS stuff. I have a US 46 EU 56 white and black. It's new as hell, two track days and one day on the street with a minor wreck. There is no damage to it. If you find out that size fits you...it is yours for half of what ever IP is selling them for.

This is a two piece zip together one though.

Good info, thanks. 

I'm ignorant of sizing on these things - I'm 6'0"/160lbs/30" waist. Are we ballpark?

Welcome. Mid Ohio isn't the only track accessible from Ohio.

N2td.org check it out. A few of us are staff/coaches for that org and we run many tracks.

It really does look brand new. Even still smells like new leather. It is an IXS Camaro  I am seeing them for 300 at IP and Amazon.  150.

I would feel a heck of a lot better if we knew for sure that this thing actually fit you. I ride right through where you live all the time when I take weekend bike runs. How about we meet, I would bet I will be down there this weekend.

@Tonik thanks a million for the deal on the suit. Smelled slightly odd but it was a hell of a deal. 😂👍
