  1. Good thing I have a huge pile of 180 Conti RA3s in my basement along with a leftover T31. 🥴
  2. Moral of the story is don't have kids lol.
  3. RE Smaller: YES RE Sportier: Throttle is on the right, add suspension and tires RE Cruiser: Ride slower The STR is without a doubt the fastest street bike I own, but it sounds too much like an inline 4 for my liking. It had drag bars on it, making comfort worse, so I switched to Renthal street low bend bars (fairly similar to stock) and it is comfortable enough. My 500X retains the title of angry toddler, though. It's pure evil and likely to be mine forever. It's better at touring and highway slabbing than the VFR but nobody wants it because nobody wants a touring motard... Sold the GSXR.
  4. I just bought a Street Triple R. Someone needs to buy one of my motorcycles! Or I'll just keep all of them because I have MBD!
  5. I'm surprised the bikes are in front of the car... Nobody puts Baby in a corner!
  6. May need to thin the herd shortly. I'm going to feel like I own a museum come winter.
  7. I wish I had a garage so all my bikes could be pictured at once. It's getting out of control now with 5 lol. No cool shots of the WR250R yet, but here are the others.
  8. Cancelled my reservation today so there should be a spot at the Rocket. Other riding got in the way. Happy and sad all at the same time.
  9. No, but I did sign up for the season pass and the day I scheduled my flight out is the one day we run VIR Full Course. It's proved difficult coordinating a bike there with my work schedule. I'd pay a reasonably trustworthy rider to ride my bike from North Carolina to Miguel's place before the trip.
  10. Probably not gonna make this after all. Because track days.
  11. Holy crap! What rally is that? ***Edit - nevermind, I'm dumb
  12. Please do performance sweat wicking!
  13. I hear the Colorado route is pretty good. I think someone important on this forum lives out there. Who would that be? Hmmm.
  14. I appreciate the offer, but I'm probably looking more for shipping it to the hotel in Custer on either July 9th or 10th with a VFRD member accepting delivery. Then on the evening of the 10th or morning of the 11th either getting a ride from the airport to the hotel or having someone ride the bike to me at the airport and then 2-up back to the hotel. I can think of a few yahoos who would enjoy the latter.
  15. I'm really thinking about a ship / fly on the way out due to limited time, but we could definitely take the long way home over a couple of days.
  16. What is the recommended route across the Great Plains?
  17. LOL. So shall I. I may try to squeeze in Utah or Colorado on the return trip so I will probably pack the cold weather stuff, too. Is it July yet?
  18. Thanks for the suggestions, but I was referring to riding temperatures. I will be wearing ATGATT, which will not include shorts, t-shirts, jeans, Speedo's, flip flops, etc. Are there significant elevation changes such that it will be 40 degrees on top of the mountain? I'm new to the area.
  19. What sort of temperatures are to be expected in this region at that time of year?
  20. Booked for the trailer I do not yet own. I'll probably add a day on the end but have not yet decided. The trailer I plan to own will also be a track day trailer with some sleeping accommodations so I can just sleep the last night in the trailer. It shall be grand!
  21. I don't know how they go that slow and not fall over with all the vibration and noise distracting from the task at hand.
  22. Warning noted. I don't know anything about your Mister Happy and I won't bother to ask. This ride sounds like it shouldn't be missed after Corner Carver's description of the SD area from his exploits. This sounds like a job for the CB500X or whatever is it's replacement.
  23. Or mount the Chinese plastics and save the originals...

    Achingly beautiful, sir.
  25. I agree the turn indicator lights likely have little effect. If anything, I was riding without running lights because the filaments from the original bulbs had burned out, which is probably worse over time than running with an LED that will last longer. I believe the brake running light pulls a good bit more than signal running lights. The worst thing I did for the RR was switch out all the headlights for LED. In the end, I decided safety of signaling cars and visibility was worth the cost of extra load on the RR. I'm also running a radar detector, charging a cell phone, running heated grips and at times heated clothing, a voltmeter, and gear indicator. A veritable circus which I doubt this makes up for it but maybe comes close.
