General Banter / RIP Barney Larson
« on: January 08, 2018, 07:24:36 PM »
If you don't know Barney. He was the owner of Larson's Cycle in Cambridge MN.
I believe he passed away at his home on Friday or Saturday.
I meet Barney way back when I was 16. My family started buying bikes from him way back then. I talked to him every time I was at the shop. We always talk at the track as well. We even raced each other a few times.
I was told he still opened the doors in the morning.
I will miss him. Rest in Peace.
Vince
If you would like to celebrate his life. That is at the Cambridge Lutheran Church. This Thursday from 11:30am. Service starts at 1 pm.

General Banter / RIP David Belcher

I don't know if Dave was a member here. But I have ridden with him many times. I think you may have seen him at Rays for a few MotoGP races.
He had the Green 250 Ninja with the ugly yellow travel trunk on the back of his bike.
We laughed about it every time we rode together.

I will miss you Dave.

Yes it was smaller. But it was just as good as any other time. Because the word was out that it was not as good. It was better. Not as many people showed up so you could walk around much easier. Nice I thought.

I have ridden one of these. I can tell you it is a lot of fun. You can take corners even faster and feel really safe doing it.

The VFR should be fine on trips. I have taken my ZX10 and my R1 on trips and there are fine.

I have no fear of the young guys. It's all those old guys that scare me.

FB events don't really work for me. I would rather it stay on the forum.

For your R1 the standard. Your interceptor because of more weight the GT. I think that tire has another ply in it.

Michelin Pilot Road 4. The best there is. Bridgestone S23 are really good as well. And Avon Strom 3D-XM.
All 3 of these are top of the line. I have used them all. Absolutely the best in the rain and long life. And a good twisty tire as well. 5,000+ miles.
