Re: [tentative] ride this weekend?

I could do a ride tomorrow or Monday. Not sure on Sunday, it would depend on the time.

Re: Protective Gear

Took the Daytona out for the first ride of the year today. A bit cold and windy, but great to be back on the bike. Also the first chance I've had to use the new helmet, a Bell Race Star. PROS: The first thing I noticed right away was the difference in the view. Compared to my old helmet I got "...

Re: What did you do to your bike today?

Looks like the decals changed at some point mid 2015 when I purchased the bike, and technically have 2016 decals. Fairing is being returned to BikeBandit and I'll order the correct one. Going to put the original fairing back on for now so I don't have to ride the bike with one side naked. 8-) Maybe ...

Re: What did you do to your bike today?

I just now noticed when looking at the photos that the stickers aren't the same. That's going to drive me nuts!!! Now I have to research what in the world that's about.

Re: What did you do to your bike today?

We're finally being threatened with warmer weather! I generally don't ride until it's at least 60F out, so we're getting pretty close. I started replacing the damaged fairing tonight and will finish it up tomorrow. Also received the replacement bar end this past weekend. It was also damaged when I d...

Re: Track Intro

Definitely appreciate it, but I really prefer not to bother other people if possible. We'll see what can be worked up in the next couple months. I can always rent a suit if I decide not to purchase, so that's not a big deal at all. Renting a trailer is, because I need to run back and forth to IA Cit...

Re: Track Intro

Outlook isn't looking great for track days on a bike this year guys. Going through renting trailers again is out of the question, for a number of reasons. So, I'm working through some other options. For example, building my own cheap harbor freight trailer. Just too many eggs in one basket this seas...

Re: Lowest Profile Ear Buds

I actually tried that last night, which is how I found out that if it stays in place...it hurts. Helmet is just too tight for ear buds, I think.

Re: Lowest Profile Ear Buds

Your issue is the same problem I'm having now with the new helmet. My old helmet wasn't a correct fit, likely adding to the issues I was having with it. With the new Bell Race Star, it pulls on the ear buds pretty hard putting it on, and then is quite painful when the helmet is in place IF I can get...
