General Banter / LESS IS MORE
« on: October 09, 2017, 04:21:46 PM »
  Last week's full moon brought about quite a change in my garage. I swapped my Futura for a Ninja 300. I've had doubts recently about being able to handle it much longer(like pick it up!). There were no mechanical issues other than the worry of losing another rear wheel bearing which was replaced at 25-35k?(don't remember). It cost me $140 back then but the price has more than tripled. I'll miss the wonderfully comfortable bike but I traded one 15yo w 55k for a 2015 w under 8k on it. Had it out on my 100mi North route yesterday and love it. The GSXR shock I bought for the ex250 is installed and a 1 up front sprocket ordered. I'll be doing front suspension upgrades and more comfy padding for my bony arse. Not sure how this will affect the Hill Country rides but The 300 or SV are certainly usable.

  I don't know if he was a rider or not but he was surely one of us in spirit.

  That looks like a good route. My late Aunt & Uncle lived on Lake Wisconsin and while visiting them we went to Devil's Lake-pretty neat place. Have fun!

 Season is winding down. Having thoughts of a Fall color ride but not sure if I'm up to doing another day ride.

  Ana Carasco just won the SS300 race in Portugal. I sent her a GL on Facebook yesterday after seeing she'd qualified 3rd. I wasn't sure she would even hold that spot but WOW.

It's a hormonal thing-you'll outgrow it. I find on my regular routes I'm going the same speed whether on my Futura ,SV, or EX250.

  Things are heating up. Riding season in sight. Modifying 2 seats for better comfort. Fresh tires on SV. All servicing done. The Hill Country beckons. Spring is here!

 That's exactly like the one I bought new back then. Worst mistake ever-@ 17k it was on the 3rd set of cams. Only later did I learn of poor oiling system. You don't mention any upgrades to the lube supply. That said it was a great ride comfort and handling wise. They were rushed into production for AMA Superbike racing(with extra duty lubing mods).
