Re: Protective Gear

Bought it, thanks again! Looking forward to trying it on. With the helmet out of the way, I really just need riding pants and knee protectors. I'll take a look at a stand alone back protector to use for the track as well. I'll stick with the in-jacket protection on the street for now so I don't have...

Re: Protective Gear

Going with the Bell Race Star - RSD Chief. Will double check measurements tonight and get it ordered. Hopefully it fits well and I can nail the sizing down on the first try.

Thanks for the link!

Re: Protective Gear

Oh man...I really like that RSD Chief Helmet. Deciding whether or not to pull the trigger, that's massive savings. No clue if it would fit properly. I purchased a Simpson helmet last year to use in the car and nailed the sizing, so I'll have to take a look at that helmet shape since I can't remember...

Re: Protective Gear

I'll check out the Forcefield Back Protector for the track, from what I understand that style external protector is better. I'd like to stick with something that snaps into a jacket for the street, not sure if that locks me into AStars stuff due to proprietary design. Wish there were a place I could...

Protective Gear

I'm reviewing my gear over the winter, and would like to make some purchases before the next season starts (regarding Street only). Safety first! :beer: Right now, I'm using the following every time I ride: AStars GP Plus R Jacket - AStars Nucleon KR-Ci Chest Protector - AStars Nucleon KR-1i Back Pr...

Re: What did you do to your bike today?

Just did some simple prep work this past weekend for the track day at BlackHawk Farms on Friday. Too many projects going on in the garage, so wheeled the bike out into the driveway to get some work done. Brakes feel MUCH better after getting rid of the over 2yr old OEM fluid and flushing with Motul ...

Re: 2017 midwest area trackday schedules

Great! Makes it tough to stick around when I'm renting a trailer. Hopefully I can purchase something next season and get a bit more freedom in that area.

Moving my registration to the event at Blackhawk Farms on Friday, 9/22. It's the only day left this year that fits in my schedule. Hope to see some of you guys out there! :beer:

Re: 2017 midwest area trackday schedules

Sorry fellas, looks like I'm going to sit this one out. Lots of hail damage here in Muscatine and it's hitting a little harder financially than I had hoped. Such is life, but I do need to re-prioritize. Hope to work another track day in yet this year. Have fun at RA! Apex-It, what's the status of s...

Re: riding Sat 7/29
