  1. I'm not a big wine drinker but will have a brown water to your health this evening. Love the packaging idea!
  2. If you liked the CB500x, you should try the Tiger660. It's nearly the same specs as the CB but 80hp instead of 48hp.
  3. Some of us spent the week after the ride hitting more great roads. It was tough to cut it to 15 minutes. I had to get a new computer to edit the 4k video from the GoPro. It's been too hot to be outside this week so I did a little editing finally.
  4. This event is still on for those of you not on FB. Just over a month out now. Rumor has it that I won't be the only one from Alabama this year.
  5. Forgive me if I missed it being mentioned. The 6th gens were notorious for crappy starter valve sync from the factory in addition to being lean. PC or other controller will solve a lot of the issue but to get it really smooth, get the throttles synced. You are dealing with a lot of issues from an old bike. It will be worth it in the end. They are very reliable when sorted and nothing beats the sound of a happy V4.
  6. I prefer roads with some challenges at a pace that I can manage. I don't like the thrill of outright speed as much as I like working on my skills. Looks like a good couple of days.
  7. I wish! One day I'll live close enough to make it.
  8. Checked in this morning planning to share this. Makes me want to go ride mine again.

    The Fall Ride dates are Sept. 21-24. After looking at several different locations and accommodations I've settled on Abingdon, VA. I based this on the variety of roads in the area and restaurants. The motel will be Alpine Motel (276) 628-3178 https://maps.app.goo.gl/GWkHUijYCnGYoUEG8
  10. I copied this from the FB post. We've done the ride from this area before and it is full of great riding. The Fall Ride dates are Sept. 21-24. After looking at several different locations and accommodations I've settled on Abingdon, VA. I based this on the variety of roads in the area and restaurants.

  11. Just spent three days riding out of the Pineola Motel at the top of 181. It was a dual sport ride and I was loaded up heading home on Sunday. We were down along the lake on Saturday for a bit. Bad pavement is less of a problem on little bikes.
  12. What a time to not be able to post pics. I'll just have to imagine. Lots of words Dutchy!
  13. A redirect would point to any site it could be moved to. I was only thinking of Miguel and his sense of ownership. The information could be moved. It’s better than letting it die. Thank you by the way for stepping up. I hope it works out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. If someone is to save the forum, maybe a name change to reflect the change? I'm sure Miguel has some feelings about his baby going off without him.
  15. I felt the axis shift.[emoji16] Safe travels Leon! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. VFRD has soo much more to give! Making popcorn now.
  17. I've checked in here daily from joining in 05 to today. It filled the void left by the departure of motorcycle magazines. There has always been good reading here. Most of my closest friends were made at the rides posted on this site. This is a huge loss but keeping it going should not rest on one man. I hope that you enjoy your freedom Miguel and that you will always know what a wonderful impact you made in many many lives.
  18. Great news! We've always had a good time there. You know I'll be there!
  19. The tradition of the green jersey goes back to 2013. On Saturday evening, everyone who had an off during the four days is encouraged to stand up and tell their story for the benefit of all. They then sign and date the jersey. Then the crowd votes on who wins the green jersey. It is returned every year. If you watch the video to the end, you will see me tell my story as the only one who had an incident involving two wheels.
  20. It was a great time as always. Never let the weatherman make the call to go or not go. We never had rain on a ride for ten days. I'll post pics and videos when I get time. One tease...I won the green jersey.
  21. Loaded up and truckin in about an hour! Safe travels everyone.
  22. Your collection is enough to get you into any VFR event.😉 There may even be another NC750x there one day. One of the crew loves to ride his for everybody to pick on him and then he schools us all on "its not the bike".
