    PRB’s 5th annual Fall Ride! Sept 20-23. Marion, NC

    As usual, Sweeper is a great guy to ride with but his camera is everywhere! LOL! 😜

    Not making the tire mistake again - bringing a second rear, mounted and ready to go in a few minutes if ham fisted exhuberance gets the best of me 😉

    PRB’s 5th annual Fall Ride! Sept 20-23. Marion, NC

    Being a polite Kanadian, I'd like to schedule crashing this event 😁 I've got new(ish) tires and everything! See all y'all there!
  5. Unfortunately no, was an hour North of Venice - an easy 2 hr drive on the Autostrada. Going again I would stay with the 09:15 tour - this way the parking lot across the street is virtually empty. It was packed when I got out around 11:30.
  6. Took the morning of a recent business trip to Italy and visited the Ducati factory. They have a guided factory tour (sorry no pictures allowed) and the Museum tour all on the site in Bologna. If you have the chance, don't hesitate, the factory tour was fascinating. A few notes from the factory tour: - The new Panigale V4 engine takes 180 minutes and a V-twin only 120 minutes to assemble - Non of the bikes are 'dressed' in bodywork within the factory - From the assembly line to quality control and through to final inspection each bike is rolled around by hand. When I asked what happens when someone drops a bike the question was met with dead silence and the guide quickly moved on to someone else. I suggested the person wear a green shirt like at TMAC, but was again icily ignored. For some reason I felt right at home. A few pics of my trip the majority of the Museo as it was only permitted to take pictures in the museum where they had the last remaining Super Sport that hadn't caught fire. Even with that risk I still covet that bike as N+1 the ergos are very comfortable.
  7. Great pads with high heat resistance and great bite. Virtually no compromise from stock.

    Nice job recording the goings on Sweeper. You are the VFRD historian!

    knock on rev

    2006-2009s use a different casting that captures the pads ‘better’ or at least differently than previous years.

    Spring Ride Activities: Tapoco Lodge, supervised Dragon sticker application, Working on bikes, working on lines, working on emptying the cooler - all things I look forward to at the Spring Ride.
  11. Thanks zeer0 for getting the shirts together for the Spring Ride. Looking forward to getting together with everyone in May and seeing how you 'step up' your footwear game from what you had at the Fall Ride.

    Just published the Rev.1 Spring Memorial PRE-Ride Itinerary in 2018 PRE-Ride to the Spring Memorial Ride as a topic in the Rider Groups - Ride Planning / USA - South section. Exactly the same as last year - but better. Held a day later and on a different route. Alright, might qualify as slightly different then. If you are down to Franklin early for the Spring Ride and want to be well on the way to burn off a set of tires over the entire week this will get you started.
  13. Grace's "Halfrica Twin" (Sweeper copyright) is looking good with those new shoes. Time is counting down before you will need the VFR done. 5 months(ish) and counting!

    I like that idea. The Kanuckistan Escape Express.
