That'll do it. Staying.
Posted the wife's CRF250L up for sale if anyone is looking for one.
Get a nice loop together and Chaz and I will come over some Sunday and ride with you all.
Sweet, I’ll be freaking there if I can at all make it!
I think the Lake Vesuvius DS tide at Wayne is that Sunday. I’m guessing it’ll be like Wailin Wayne?
Any one who brings a big bike, I'll take them on a tour of the property.
Nice single cylinder Vincent there tonight.
I am so there. I’ll bring the Baeter as Gumby would say it.
So I just picked up a dr650 to replace my dr350 and it came with a seat concepts low seat. I would like to trade for a different other than stock seat. Anyone interested?

Look up FatherX in the NEO thread. I believe there are a couple of DR650 riders up there
I'm putting this here, as it applies to Ohio riders.
There was lot of news coverage early this year about a change in Ohio law allowing vehicles to proceed through "malfunctioning" red lights, including those where the sensors did not detect the vehicle. The amendment became effective in March, and I've relied on that change while proceeding through a couple red lights that did not detect my motorcycle after several cycles.
The subject came up in another thread, and I wanted to quote a reference for the revised law, ORC 4511.132. It turns out the law was further amended in June, allowing only bicycles to proceed if not detected. This amendment received NO press coverage that I can find, so I wanted to call some attention to the current law.
Old and new language can be seen at this link: HB 9, 132nd General Assembly
I'm going riding at Wayne on 9/28 with a friend. Meeting at Monday Creek parking area around 2 pm if anyone is interested in trail riding. Taking the KLX450 out for the first time this year. Yay!
Since when do bicyclists even stop for red lights...
Thanks, I've used that law as a reason to travel thru many red lights which never changed for my motorcycles. I guess it's back to right turn, u turn, right turn.
Oh, ok, I guess I'll just sit there and wait indefinitely rather than risk a ticket from an unreasonable officer who needs to get laid more.
Seriously, fuck it I'll do what I've always done and look carefully in all directions for said sexually repressed Johnny Law and proceed with my business. This shall also be how I address U-turns, right-turns on red that I can see clearly but are declared illegal by a stupid sign, specific left turn arrows when it's otherwise green and safe to turn, and stop signs on country roads with perfect visibility in all directions that I will no fucking way stop for.
I'll do all of this wearing both earplugs, because I'm a fucking rebel. Also going to rip my mattress tags off, and tape a football game without the express written consent of the National Football League. They'll write books about my lack of fucks to give.
I’m a dork. I get off the bike and hit the pedestrian crossing button.
I've ridden up onto the curb and hit it. Much more satisfying. Lots of intersections don't have crosswalks or buttons tho, there's one near me that's consistently non-functional if you roll over it, so I've just gotten into the habit of looking for the light bar vehicles, and if I don't see one I roll through like a man who doesn't fear death.
<BTW, roundabouts rule, in the case of an equipment failure, power outage, zombie outbreak or in the unlikely event that Cher's music career revives itself, the roundabout still works as a roundabout>
If there is one. I can name a dozen lights in the immediate Lancaster vicinity which dont recognize bikes or have buttons.
Stop with both wheels on the sensor line if possible (usually the left line for motorcycles). On most sensors this will trigger the light, even with a bicycle. Stopping in the middle of the loop is not usually going to work unless you are in a car.
The more difficult thing to deal with is granny stopping 50 ft from the intersection
I've passed on the shoulder a few times to trigger a sensor.
Apparently I am a nerd and a rebel because when I explain why I do this to my kids, I call it “de-escalating a traffic signal by 1”.
That is, I treat a red light as a stop sign, a stop sign as a yield sign, and etc. It is perfectly safe where there is little traffic, which is where I have chosen to live and prefer to ride.
