  1. I came across this on a CB500x forum. This cable https://smile.amazon.com/capital_auto-Diagnostic-Cable-Harness-Adapter/dp/B083HRML9H/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?dchild=1&keywords=honda+obd2+4+pin+plug+adapter+cable&qid=1585584686&sr=8-1-fkmr0 allows you to use a odbii reader to see live data and stored codes. Thought some of you 8th gen owners might enjoy playing with it. Should be able to use it with a bluetooth obdii reader and free app. The whole setup should be under fifty or sixty bucks. There is software that allows you to reflash the factory computer also. No idea what that costs. If only they had done this for the 6th gen!
  2. Bob and I talked last night and there really was no way not to cancel. If things change, we can still have the event there just won't be shirts, food, tents, chairs, etc. Like a lot of you, this is my big event of the year and I plan to see it happen if at all possible. I've seen a lot of discussion on riding during the quarantine and folks not concerned about road closures. One thing you should check if you decide to go ahead is your insurance. Most companies will deny coverage if you are on a closed road. That could include your medical coverage in an accident. Be safe out there! Stay tuned for updates on IF and WHEN.
  3. Welcome to VFRD. Great to see someone jump in with both feet! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Sixth gens lean pretty hard to the left when stock. There is a really good chance you won't need a shorter one. If you do, a good welder would be able to cut and re-weld the existing stand for a lot less money than buying an adjustable. When I lengthened the stand on my CB500x, I got a used one on ebay for $15 and had a friend cut and re-weld the two in order to gain 1.5".
  5. Great story! That ones almost as sketchy as Larry’s.[emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. That very thing has been discussed. We are still too many for any house we can rent but its sadly heading that direction. The evening social gathering is a large part of the event. I prefer to stay on site so that I don't miss any of the fun. If the event is forced to cancel, some of us will still be in the area to ride I'm sure.
  7. If any of you are worried, the event is still on. The only thing that would stop us is if the state or federal government shut us all down. If there is any change, it will be posted here on VFRD. The only thing keeping me away will be the law. LETS RIDE!
  8. I’ll stop calling CornerCarver bad names for not responding to PM’s.[emoji16] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. My doc pointed out that two Advil or Alieve before I ride would be a lot better than waiting until I was sore. For exercise, I’ve just started rowing with a cheap machine and like it a lot for low impact workout. I have back, shoulder, an knee issues. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I’m six foot tall and had similar issues. Helibars helped a lot. The other thing is what Cogswell suggested, keep the weight off your wrist. It becomes more natural after you work at it. My back, neck, and shoulder are all happier now. Getting old sucks but it beats the alternative! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I promise no one will touch you and the alcohol should take care most of the problems.[emoji12] Sorry you won’t make it Terry. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Wow, I admire your determination and skills!
  13. Rumor has it that he leaves Skittles on the really exciting corners.
  14. For all of you on the fence about this event.... Yes Rob is really kind of a big deal. Can't promise clear skies all week but that never stops the fun. Sign up. Show up. BUMP for attention.
  15. I'll watch for the entertainment. I watch for the mistakes. I also noticed that he is leaving the abs pump but de-linking and has abandoned the rear abs ring when it didn't fit his new sprocket. Wonder how far he'll get before that all changes? I left him a comment on episode one to make sure and remember that the center stand bolt is left hand thread when he gets to episode four.😁
