  1. Haven't logged in here for a while. But got the ol' Connie out for rip today. After 12year and 80k miles still love this old girl.

  2. Took Sunny 2.0 for her first real ride. An easy 100mi wander through Amish farmlands. It felt so good to be on a bike again.

  3. Added turn signals, horn, and brake lights to the TE300, to make it street legal. Sent the new Goldwing seat to Russell Cycle products for the Day Long modification. Hopefully, it will be back in time for a trip to Smokies at the end of March.

  5. Assembled the Goldwing and took a short ride to shake down the suspension upgrade. 100% worth the money. Low speed maneuvers and highway handling is most noticeable. It doesn't wallow and 75mph is solid as 45mph. Bumps are smoothed out, too.

  6. Either are good states to be in Brian. I was probably both. Today it was adios to the Warp 9 motor covers. Maybe it’s the tolerances on the aluminum inserts, but mine just won’t stay snug. And an oil leak that was hard to find was the result. And I’m not resorting to thread lock to keep them snug. So off they came. In the long run, another layer of complexity in something so simple. My lower crash cage will continue to be the protection the motor needs.For sale cheap to anyone in the area (won’t ship).I also took the opportunity to pull the starter motor and install the W9 end cap that they sent me under warranty. The last one had the bearing freeze up and was field repaired in Ushuaia. I hope this one lasts longer. Stock end cap (2011, 525 miles) was bone-dry of any lubricant. This is a known issue with DR650’s and produces the infamous “rooster” sound when starting. This DR, even though only having 525 miles, is still 13 years old and needed this work Warp 9’s solution is a machined end cap with a small sealed bearing for the starter shaft to spin on, rather than the (dry) bushing in the stocker

  9. Got the bike out today and cleaned it up, then tore apart my Shoei and assessed the damage. I dropped it at the hotel at Deals Gap last fall and scratched the shield pretty bad. Probably due for an upgrade but helmet prices are just stupid.

  10. It's based on date of manufacture of the fuel pump. 17, 18 and part of 19 for the date of manufacture means your are impacted.

  13. Out here looking extra smol next to an obs 3500 crew cab 🫠 Recently the belt has started to slip REAL bad when it's wet, definitely not enough wrap around the crank pulley (between like 5 and 7 maybe 8 ) with the AC bracket and I think the belt is slightly too long as well. Getting real close to buying an SS so I can park this thing again and start repairing and upgrading

  14. Change the oil noticed a big scratch on the gas tank, but that’s what you get for letting some sorority house with poky nipples wash your bike in New York but that’s not something you pass by!

  22. Got the FJR out for a little ride today. The roads are far from ideal, but it was nice to enjoy the 60 degree weather in February.

  25. Know anyone that would be interested in a like new (still under warranty) 2022 Ducati Monster+ 937? I bought it with the intention of flipping it. The guy I bought it from had a Ferrari, and Audi RS5, couple classic Porches, expensive boats...he bought the Ducati because he could afford it, but he just wasn't a motorcycle guy. It's absolutely like new with an excellent IMU based electronics package...lean sensitive TC and ABS, launch control, wheelie control, buttery smooth up/down quick shifter, etc. It's lightweight (40lbs less than the Monster 821), and flickable. If you've ever been afraid of Ducati maintenance...the 937 motor is a gem with extended maintenance intervals...18k for valves, and 9k for oil changes. Asking $11k

  27. That must have been some extremely poky nipple to scratch your tank like that! Must have been a chilly day?

  28. Most of us aren't strong enough to resist the power of poky nipples. Well played sorority.
