    Marana has several areas to ride. Some open, and some nice single track loops that will wear you out. Many racers ride there to practice for AMRA as the AMRA courses are similar.

    I'm on the road every day bro, just haven't ridden for fun in a long time. My rear tire is looking a bit flat down the center. Bike needs a bath too.

    This thread used to be about rides, meet ups, some good banter, and the follow through of all that. Now it looks like fuckbook marketplace.... Good lordy.

    Time to re-group on what this is for you FF's. Or not. I'm going to enjoy riding anyway.

    :lol3


    With that said, I'm happy with the Denali D2 lights I tossed on the SpdTwn today. Fuckers are BRIGHT! Went with the datadim module so I can run them 50% power on low beam, and rock the shit when the high beam is on.

    Also got the Meerkat crossover pipe installed. Waiting for the Arrow slip-ons to show up tomorrow. Then it's time to rub a few pennies together for a Corbin seat and some SW-Motech luggage goodness....

    A lot of people are active on the FB rider groups. Probably explains the quiet here.

    Oh btw - bike for sale! Haha

    A contrer! It's been down for a solid month while I chased down an erratic show stopping issue. Valves, carb, cam, all kinds of things were checked/cleaned/adjusted/replaced in the pursuit. Ended up being headlight plugged into wrong wire. Tripped the ECU or something.
    Both of the other bikes are r2r, faster, and better in just about every way.

    After spending several weeks riding around Europe, I start up all the vehicles upon return. My 2011 GS starts pouring gas out the left side...welcome home! BMW MOA tow to Iron Horse.

    I'm the original owner and had the fuel pump flange recall done 5 years and 30k ago...it failed and that's what's leaking. Fixed under "warranty" (in quotes b/c the warranty long ago expired), no cost to me.

    Much gets written on the internet about poor products/companies/dealers, sometimes deservedly so. Thought I'd recognize when a company and dealer do the right thing, no questions asked. :photog:photog:photog

    Thought about you the other day when I saw this bike for sale. Thinking it’s a wheelie wheelie good deal.... probably loose my license too quickly with it though.

    Rode over Bull Springs Road this morning to Patagonia, had lunch and returned the same way. So beautiful. Met this guy in Patagonia. He graduated from Ohio State in 1953. He is 88 years old. After taking his photo he kicked over this Cushman (well if you can call it kicking, more like "stepping") and rode off. I guess once you get riding in your blood it never leaves. Cushman.jpg
