Ill be sad to lose a riding buddy but glad to see you go to a better environment. Hopefully I can cut out some time again this year and go riding up there with you. Definitely some wonderful roads and great scenery. Congratulations!

Iíll be there again!

Being that I change and balance my own tires, I prefer not to have to deal with beads, particularly when changing the tire. Although it can sometimes take a little more time to get some tires balanced with traditional wheel weights, I have found that once I did get then balanced, I never have to worry about them. I have been doing a lot of track time lately and have to say that 100+ MPH is the norm on most straights and I have never had an issue (knock on wood). The best part of the latter is, no CHP performance awards have ever been handed to me.

A guy backed into my VFR and knocked it over, with the fairing, windscreen, mirror, front sub-frame, top case and foot pegs needing to be replaced, he got a ~$2,800.00 bill (his company insurance paid for it), so let your co-worker know he got let off easy! Still, with the ticket, a little insult to injury never feels good.

Well, I'll try and make this one but just like the last two, I'll be working outside of Orange County, so depending on what time I finish up, I just might make this one!


This also talks about securing the front wheel though.

One other option would be a hitch carrier as long as your vehicle has a tongue weight that can support it.  I use one for my minibike.

Maybe this is what you are looking for...

Yes, but it states that the mechanism lifts into place, which is what he was describing.

Giving this item a bump...

Sold. Thanks Alfasteve

In July 2016, a Tesla Model S in Norway rear-ended a motorcyclist while in Autopilot mode. The car failed to sense the vehicle ahead, and the driver failed to remain vigilant, despite Teslaís warnings to do so while using Autopilot. The rider was seriously injured, but survived. 

From the article: "...all ACC (adaptive cruise control) systems studied were worse at spotting motorcycles straying three feet, 11 inches or more from the center line than they were at spotting cars."  As if distracted drivers weren't enough, now we have distracted drivers relying on sensors and computers to keep them safe causing a greater danger to us on two wheels!  >:(

Article here:
This is one reason to constantly check your 6 when riding. Have people become so lazy that they no longer want to drive on their own?

Understood! Just let me know, either way.  Thank you.
Steve, I should be getting the gloves back tomorrow. I'll PM you...

BD, I'm not that far from LB, I have the tools, garage and the means to lift the bike. I can help you get the shock replaced if you want.

Did you guys make it out there? I had mechanical stuff to do on Saturday and family obligations on Sunday, so this weekend was not one for riding. Looks like I'll have a similar weekend next weekend as I am helping someone with their bike as well as prepping for some track time on Saturday the 14th. So no dual sport riding for me for at least the next two weekends. From what my buddy tells me though, he won't be back until July...

I just started to watch some of her YouTube post too, just watched one this morning before I heard about this. I have never really been a fan of Ortega and the more and more reports of incidents like this, it gets even less.

Hello, would you take $55 shipped to me here in Glendale, CA?

Thank you,

Steve,  I loaned them to a friend, as he was considering buying them. Let me see if he is or not. I donít believe he rode with them, he just wanted to try them on with his Leathers, due to the short gauntlet tabs.

Great pix glad all are safe Gawd I miss that place.....
Tell me about it. Last time I was there I was a twenty-something! That was some 25-30 years ago. I have to say, although she's a beast, the Tiger did well, even through the mud! Todd, before I give the bike back to my buddy, you'll have to detail it for me. Have to return it in better condition that I got it.

Had a fantastic time riding with you guys. Have fun in California City tonight and safe riding tomorrow. Got home and enjoying a cold one.
Awesome day today. Fantasjob on that 1200! Have to say I am really impressed on where you were able to take it today. Glad you got home safe and have a cold one for me!

Went to GMR today from the lookout near the lake road, didn't go up to the lake as the icy warning was out and it was dam cold up there.

Yeah the cold seemed to stop a few riders but the afternoon was full of beach goers. Took the Wife to Seal Beach after I resolved the high idle issue with my '09 VFR this morning. Don't know what I did but it works now! Spent yesterday dealing with steering head bearing replacement and fork oil change. This along with new tires and brake pads I installed last weekend, the bike feels really good!

Well, I clicked the 'Plan to attend' button. Let's hope that doesn't change! Haven't been to California City in literally several decades! I think the last time I was there, I went Skydiving. Prior, it was with the family and friends riding my ATC and driving our sand rail.
