  1. Sports Touring is dead, replaced by adventure touring. /DoomandGloom
  2. Yes its a Kendon. I bought it in 2014 and have towed bikes all up and down the west coast. Best investment I've made in motorcycle stuff.
  3. The second week of December I went down to the Southwest to see a bunch of big rocks. Read all about it on my blog: https://crotchrocketeer.blogspot.com/2020/12/snowbird-december-2020.html (I'm really too lazy to copy it all and pictures and stuff into a post here)
  4. May 2017 at Thunderhill Raceway Park, Willows, CA. Second time back on track after a pretty bad wreck in 2015. Don't mind the watermark, Keigwins (now Carter's) was giving us watermarked JPGs with the logos to share on social media as part of their marketing that year.
  5. Near Long Creek, OR. Dodging a rain storm. Spent the next day getting dumped on.
  6. is a burst oil filter what happened here or are you merely joking?
  7. Hi lazyeye, Thank you for your donation of 5.00 USD. We look forward to improving the forums with your donation. Thanks VFRDiscussion
  8. YMMV? That 6500 miles was with worn out suspension so the tires were eating themselves, and it was mostly straight up and down. If you find something that grips well and will last 7k, let us know for sure.
  9. Beginning of June I changed my tires. I had a set of Pilot Road 5s on my 800 that I'd mounted in September. After 6500 miles the rear was past the wear bars and handling like crap. The front had reached the wear bars. Since this was a Autumn/Winter/Spring set I'm not surprised I burned out the center, also because my suspension was worn out (got it refreshed in May). I put on a set of S21 takeoffs to hold me over until I decide what to try next. The plan is to do a lot of mileage so I need something that'll handle the miles without getting out of shape really fast.
  10. Mounted new tires. My PR5s that I mounted in September and rode all fall/winter/spring on were shot (6100miles). Burned out the center of course, but that's what happens when you live in a valley and have to ride straight roads to get to the fun roads.
  11. Bought in March 2016 as a New Leftover. Handful of trackdays, a lot of sport riding, and sport touring.
  12. (technically yesterday). Picked it up from the shop. They did every bit of maintenance that a 38,000mile bike needs and it rides like a new machine.
  13. (technically yesterday). I dropped it off for a 38,000 mile service with a shop that claims to know VFRs. By June I'll have a like new bike and can pile on the miles (if the state of emergency ever ends).
  14. I went with a DID brand this time, because that's what my local shop had. The off-brand 520 I installed 10,000 miles ago didn't hold up to Oregon conditions (dirt, water, de-icer, etc). The sprockets looked like new so I kept with the same chain size.
  15. Cleaned my brakes again. Brakes get hella dirty. The whole bike needs a dip in some degreaser and bug wash!
  16. I checked the sag to make sure it hadn't moved since I last adjusted it in the summer. So glamorous...
  17. There's a lot of urban legends that persist.
  18. I wonder how it'll turn out. His render is odd, sportbike equipment and 50/50 trail tires? But anyways, its a freeish country, go for it.
  19. Cleaned the front brakes. Holy hell brakes get dirty, especially when you ride in wet conditions.
  20. Lubed my chain, bled the brakes, went for a ride. Took pictures.
  21. Do you live at the track or something? Haha.
