    I'm a CFI/CFII. If you pay for the aircraft rental I'll teach for free.

    I could probably get through the biennial without a problem, but I'm not sure about the physical. Do they still make you stand on one leg to check your balance?

    Maybe I can mount an artificial horizon on the bike to practice my IFR skills.:eek1:eek1



    Maybe a soaring day?

    Handling in a glider is a lot crisper than a Small Cessna or Beach. You actually have to use the rudder pedals to make a turn.

    Does anyone have a link to the forum/ thread for NASA Rally Sport as would relate to RallyMoto? I was hoping to get some more info on BRS.

    And a question for you guys who keep doing these events..

    I noticed looking at the BRS website that there are only 88 miles of special stages.

    The question would be, what makes it worth the expense of licensing/ entry etc?

    I realize that it's a great time with your friends, but am I missing something?

    Worth it is a question only you can answer. Like you said, some of us continue to do these events, so they must be worth to us. If you feel like racing and the only bike you have is the 690, you don't have many options. You could road race I guess or do a NEHA hill climb but nothing off pavement other than RM. You could ride an Enduro or a Harescramble if you felt like being hardcore on the 690 but I don't think you'll have any fun.

    Not sure what to tell you you've kind of answered your own questions for the most part I think:lol3

    You'll be able to find many multi-hundred-post threads.

    I somehow managed to strip the brass insert on the lower shock putting everything together. I must have been weinered before because I was no where near the proper torque spec. I checked online but didn't find a replacement for it. Any ideas?

    I'd rather not just get a longer bolt and put a nut on it.
