General Banter / The "Devil Child" on top AGAIN!!??

  I hate to admit it but his ability & talent cannot be denied. The Honda may have something to do with his success but the other makes are closely competitive. His dustups with Rossi are so much like Roberts vs Spencer in 83/84. I still think D.C. is a good handle for him but he's earned his achievements.

  I would usually preface that with 'Happy' but I can't say that considering the present state of our nation.

General Banter / Hill Country Ride 6/13 road conditions
« on: June 14, 2018, 08:56:21 AM »
  Only a couple nasty bits. 88 from U to Gilmanton bad!  Newly paved N has new class 5 too and the tight corners are well covered but the sweepers were clean. Hit some old favorites-XX to U was nice, H is ok but Wolf road is newer. Trout run is nice w grass to the pavement-no gravel! Doelle Valley to 95  then G to Shaeffer Valley was fun new bit. Hope others folks were able to get out on a wonderful day.

General Banter / Hill Country Ride 5/22 road conditions

 It was a good ride but roads were dirty many places. Lots of sand wash, patching, class 5 etc. The worst was a surprising new method by road crews-full road width foot wide patches were covered w pea gravel on CR-SS West of CR-D. The first encounter was on uphill fast left w no runoff ( a dropoff!). Must have been a lot of rain as the river at Dodge was the color of a bad Latte. Also bridge is out on CR-T just West of Oak Ridge Road. Washout and culvert repairs here & there too.

  Anna Carasco took the pole and was never bested winning by a 14 second gap. Her Countrywoman Maria Herrera qualified 16th but fought through 11 tough laps to take 7th place. Quite a day for the ladies!

  While surfing utube's scary Nurburgring bike stuff I happened on a very nice bit from Speed & Noise about the evolution of GP riding styles. Very interesting piece.

General Banter / RIP TED SMITH

 If any of you were budding motor-heads in the 60s I believe you'd remember Ted. His obituary is in today's paper but it doesn't mention the location of his little shop's location. It was right across Lake Street from Dulono's. Remember A Porky's at each end and dozens of lights to drag from in between. He was a true Icon of early Minnesota Motor Sports.

General Banter / HAPPY SOLSTICE!

  A safe and joyful Holiday season to all.

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.
