  1. I still use my original gen 1 Gopro Hero HD
  2. More ethanol free options in these parts than we have locally. Just shy of 400 miles, mix of valleys and mountain crossings and switchbacks. Back to D.C. before dark and no close calls. Looking forward for another run in the area but with camping next time to take advantage of more roads out there. Art
  3. Looping back east along 33 a brief stop at Germany Valley overlook. Honda V4 power.
  4. Met up with a VFR world forum member at our 2nd stop after the first mountain crossing Shenandoah at Carmella's Cafe in Edinburg. Will have to try their meatballs next time in the area. Proceeded north and then east into George Washington National Forest for a snack/beer/smoke/bathroom break at Seneca Rocks, an old school climbing area.
  5. Can then outlet just be the stock size please? That way I can run my Micron or Staintune as was designed. Art
  6. I need a solo rack but he stopped replying to my pm. Art
  7. Will do. Spring is finally here in the mid-atlantic. I guess we are considered NE which is the closest so I chose to post here. It will be a good day for sure, I count about 6-7 mountain crossings. Art
  8. We are leaving DC around 7am Saturday morning. Forecast is mid 70's high and mid 50's low. Running out west on route 66 our first stop will be the Apple House for breakfast if you would like to join us. Arrival there should be around 8:15am or so and probably be finished and ready to roll out from there by 9am. Let me know if anyone else wants to join. The loop is about 400miles and will be all day. Back in DC area before dark. Proposed route for us is here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1FlsgexPSJJ42aYG3xChLP7-XWtY&usp=sharing or try this one: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1FlsgexPSJJ42aYG3xChLP7-XWtY&ll=38.814298889421636%2C-78.24629770000001&z=9 Let me know if it works, google maps is a bit confusing. Anyone else in the DC, NoVa area free to join us, and anyone else in the region feel free to join us at any part of our route. We are going counter clockwise if you see the waypoints, and they are only for reference, we probably will be doing a bit more gas/snack/smoke/stretch breaks throughout. Art
  9. From the album ETC

    81 degrees in February 2017 Richmond Virginia day ride from DC where it was in the mid 40's and raining.
  10. Are you getting for both gen of your VFR's?
  11. Still in, provisions for O2 sensors with bungs for the Rapid Bike tuning module, and center stand compatibility. Art
  12. It is still current
  13. Were you able to get these or someone else local to here? Art
  14. That is correct, back when I acquired the VFR and went ahead and did the delink. I may need another pair of the special washers. Also, the brackets I have, they take the space of the reflector that is removed correct? Art
  15. Hummm... I have a set from 4/13 what version were those? Any difference in mounting? How much, with another pair of the stepped washer? Upon further inspection, I need another set as the fender installed on my Hawk requires these too, they were installed with regular hardware from prior mechanic. Art
