  5. N2 Trackdays will be holding 4 track days over 2 weekends this year at Nelsons. It just so happens that the people running the day are also Ohio Rider members, Dan ( @Jester_ ), Ron ( @RonStopable ) and myself will be there. Stop on out and say hi or better yet jump on https://www.n2td.org/ and create an account and join us. This would be a perfect weekend as we are projecting lower numbers so that means less on-track traffic and more attention from the N2 staff that will be there. Even if you don't ride the track regularly, it can help build the skills that will keep you safer street riding. If you have never been on track before we offer a try the track program where you can get on track for 2 sessions for free with the option to pay a discounted rate for the rest of the first day ($165). Normal price for Nelsons $195/day. With basic membership $180/day. With elite membership $165/day. We really could turn this into an OR track day if enough of you sign up. Paging people like @durk I've given up hope trying to get @Pauly @Tpoppa @Uncle Punk and the like to come out. It does look like @dpgasser will be there < excited to see you again bud! Dan and I around Nelsons: Don't be fooled, Dan is much faster than me. If you ever see him behind me, it's because he "wants" to be there .

  11. Tim I appreciate you thinking of me. Currently I’m so busy, I barely had time for the Spring ride I organized. I just put the date on the calendar and told my family I was taking that day for myself. My daughter just graduated last weekend. Now the focus is finishing out the school year, and then getting ready for a graduation party for my daughter. Maybe things will slow down and I can shoot for the July dates.

  15. I flew Spirit in December, would have used them again but had to meet a specific schedule so flying Delta in June. Maybe keeping away from the scuzzy masses on Spirit will save me. Delta was twice the price of Spirit and after I booked they offered me an upgrade to first class for $110 more. Upgrade my ass that's all I want to pay.

  16. God does flying suck anymore. I blame the airlines with the baggage charges. Everyone carries a ton of shit on, making it a nightmare to get on and off. Kudos to Delta though for awesome in flight entertainment choices. I binged Rick and Morty on the way back. Home.

  21. Would need a years notice for such an event. That's how long it would take me to lose enough weight to fit into my leathers. Now would be the time to do it while the bike is a little banged up though.

  22. Not going to do Hawaii. Been there many times and don't really like it. For some reason ND was a PITA for us to get done. We got it passing through to central Canada.

  27. Made it home Sunday late afternoon. Pain is manageable as the doctors prescribed all the good pills. Feeling my ribs move around is probably the most unpleasant part of the aftermath. Happy to see that the Goot-zie looks about 97% ok... they are characterful bikes, and now that one has a bit more ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Thanks for the help everyone, and Joel in particular. I have every intention of resuming two-wheeled therapy sessions by August.

  29. Some sleep and food, ready to type again. first off @durk so awesome for you to take the initiative to post the ride and put this together. And it seems like your not jinxed like me or Derek and granted with great weather when every where else around it was raining. And my friend that connie fits you like a glove and you ride it so well and fast. It was perfect pace and smoooooooth. It could use more dampening and preload in rear shock if you have that option. it was fantastic to meet everyone. It felt like coming home to a family dinner without the dysfunctional component, well May be some 😄 all the familiar faces and meeting some new ones. These days over in NC as well I just go out and ride for 2 days all mountain roads and back but this one was way longer but so much more satisfying to have a goal to meet y'all. I wish I could have finished the ride but that would have been the death of me, good thing I split of when I did. next one I plan to take an extra day and finish the ride. Or better you guys join me for the WV loop on my way down or the way up. I took all back roads 16 mainly up and back as well through Virginia 33. Beautiful. (Ps: if you haven't done wv 31 do it ) @Uncle Punki still clearly remember it as yesterday the first ride I think like 14 yrs ago or so. That was my second ever ride in US (the first ever one I low sided 🤣) still didn't know how to ride these big cc bike. You patiently waited and swept the whole way. I was feeling very guilty ruining you ride and asked you to go have fun multiple times. You were the one who's told me don't fear revving the sport bike engine to higher rpm. Till then I used to ride like in Indian mentality highest gear lowest rev more mpg 😄😄 since that day I haven't seen any rpm below 10 lol And yesterday, you pulled a fast one, literally came with Santa Claus beard and all mature and gentlemanly. I was thinking you changed, if not would never have chased you on tour favorite playground of 83 hahah but it turned out really really fun my friend, you still go like a mad man. I am pretty sure my bike flew for a bit going triple digit on one of those bumps 🤯, I could not keep that intensity going on the last fishy section with uneven pavement right on the corners but felt so good to see you just glide on that without one second of hesitation 👍🏽 Sorry to hear about the oopsy check eBay for parts, XR always shows up. The naked bike and those speeds is really crazy, I have a sore spot on the chin where the chin bar was pressed against from all the wind blast. @Grokked so sorry to hear this news, hopefully you heal up soon. Unfortunate and off course Joel is the right person with the great helping mind, especially southern Ohio is his region of reign. 👍🏽 @Pauly hope to meet you soon somewhere in the mountains my friend. Didn't get to talk much at all. @Skinny Rick we will keep talking about how to set up our bike. If you haven't done so far, make sure you set the preload right using the bmw tool. Transforms the bike. uploaded bunch of pics to the album, I set our early morning to do some back roads and ended up in Muskie for the quintessential picture will definitely be doing this loops again, 3 days and no rain , a better seat and windscreen, it will be perfect. Some amazing roads. Don't know why I love 78 so much, it's the banking I guess, to just go through the whole road in 5-6 gear full throttle and not fly off the corner since the banking is so high is a rarity among roads in NC.

  30. Joel went above and beyond yesterday. Made the biggest sacrifice of his time than any of the rest of us. Plus he has always amazed me at how fast he is with that little yellow bike.

  33. Looks like a good day, no rain forecast What happened to all the usual big ride OGs Hopefully you guys can make it, I see few of you guys are out of town for good reasons . ( @B-Mac 👍🏽 @Muckles 👍🏽 Tonik👎🏽) what about the usual life of party suspects? @Uncle Punk @MidgetTodd @Helmutt @snot @DerekClouser @whaler @Shoop @ricer1 missing many more multi time participants. looking back all these years, many we came to meet during these OR rides and became life long friends are no longer with us 😞 such is life. Going to miss these guys forever. We never know when we going to get a chance again, So if there is any chance of making it happen just come by at least to the meet spot say hi and split off 👍🏽

  36. Trying to look at this from outside. So, you're basically asking a 'friend of a friend of a friend' to give someone a car at below market value? That class/size of car's only going to be even more inflated right now due to tater's emotionally reacting the fuel prices. I did a quick AutoTrader search of just Civics. I imagine you might have more luck with the others due to possibly higher depreciation. There are Zero on AutoTrader in that area. Only half a dozen in Columbus area and they all look like they are at (shady?) used car lots. https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/all-cars/cars-under-20000/honda/civic/portsmouth-oh-43214?dma=&searchRadius=50&priceRange=&location=&startYear=2017&marketExtension=include&maxMileage=50000&isNewSearch=true&showAccelerateBanner=false&sortBy=relevance&numRecords=25 This one could be a deal, but Alpha Motorsports sounds like Denny Dotson... maybe worse if the owner imagines themself as an Alpha https://www.autotrader.com/cars-for-sale/vehicledetails.xhtml?listingId=629951921&allListingType=all-cars&maxPrice=20000&priceRange=&makeCodeList=HONDA&modelCodeList=CIVIC&city=Columbus&state=OH&zip=43214&location=&searchRadius=50&startYear=2017&marketExtension=include&maxMileage=50000&isNewSearch=false&showAccelerateBanner=false&sortBy=relevance&numRecords=25&dma=&referrer=%2Fcars-for-sale%2Fall-cars%2Fcars-under-20000%2Fhonda%2Fcivic%2Fportsmouth-oh-43214%3Fdma%3D%26searchRadius%3D50%26priceRange%3D%26location%3D%26startYear%3D2017%26marketExtension%3Dinclude%26maxMileage%3D50000%26isNewSearch%3Dfalse%26showAccelerateBanner%3Dfalse%26sortBy%3Drelevance%26numRecords%3D25&clickType=supplemental I had an EX-T MT of a similar year (and an Si a year or two later) and really liked it. The base car get's a 2.0L n/a and the 'upgarde' is a 1.5L turbo, noticeably more power and better MPGs.

  39. OK just call Shell and talked to a lubricant tech guru and he informed me that the new formulation for the Rotella T6 will still be JASO MA1 or MA2 standard. And I ask about the PPM of moly that might be in it and he looked it up and said there is Zero in it. And shell recommends T6 for any wet clutch applications. And the new multi vehicle IS NOT made for wet clutches. If you want to hear it from the horses mouth here is the number to call. The guy said they are getting calls about this daily. Have a Technical Question about a Shell Lubricant Product? 800-237-8645
