Congratulations Andrew!!! Welcome! Where's your next ride planned?
Nice ride Andrew! Now the insanity gets even better, you'll see haha!!
Eight weeks roughly for approval of a first ride? Pretty good - not long ago, it was 12 to 16 weeks.
The hardest one is done!
Next ride? Hmm... I've always wanted to do a Lake Michigan 1000.
Fall colors are just around the corner.....
Gotta love fall, although I'm not a big fan of what comes next.
Well said George. Every winter gets colder for some reason. Guess it's time to check the ol yard/plow rig and start the mice eradication process
Mice suck !!!!
On the Nav V, Trip 1 and 2 just mirror what is on the bike. If you go to the Trip Computer, Trip A and B are GPS miles and you can reset those from the trip computer menu.
From a couple weeks ago...
I'll *be* one of those 'snotty-nosed assholes' *in* that aluminum tube in a few weeks. Fares are pretty good right now, so I'm still banking a bit of 'be good to my wife' karma at this time.
It’s the best part of the hunting season for me. Usually still good riding here (Missouri). Late November here can go either way. (Weather wise..)
What is this “winter” thing you speak of :)
It’s a long nine months of misery I put up with every year just to live somewhere without people to pester me.
In my working days, the facility shut down between Christmas and New Years - paid. A day or two of extra time off backed up on one side or another of the holiday shutdown could easily give a person two (or more...) solid weeks off.
Of course, living here in the cactus patch, early winter can be a crap-shoot, but there are times weather is clear, just cold. 2014 was just like that. My wife did have to go to work for a couple of days between the holidays (assholes in management she had at the time...), so I went and did my second SS1000. Around 350 miles worth of I-8 and ~660 miles of I-10. In under 15 hours. On December 30th.
Those first 230 miles...most of them were in temps below 40 degrees. Yeah, heated gear got a good workout on that ride!
Of course, there's always "Stagecoach XXII" on December 30th, 2019 in Stockton, Alabama as the legitimate "last ride of the (calendar) year".
Only a BBG away for me.
Stagecoach is fun (and cold for a Florida guy). Are they having it this year? I'm not on FB, so i'm usually the last to know. If they are, i'll plan to be there
I don't know if Mr. 203 will once again be hosting event. I presume at this point it will continue. I ran into the discussion of the 2018 event on the IBR forum where it needed to be moved to the 29th, due to staffing issues (as in, no staff) on the 30th last year.
The 30th of December is a Monday this year, for what it's worth.
Its when the ponds have at least 3.5" of inches of ice and we get to go rip the 450s on the big oval track or even better, a road course if ya got righty, lefty ice tires
Beyond that this "winter" thing really sucks
