Ride Report: EOW Rally Day 2

Monday, March 17, 2015: Inaugural Blairsville of Winter Rally Day 2.

We planned an earlier start for Day 2, leaving around 8:30 to ride Hwy 68, the Cherohala Skyway, the Tail of the Dragon, and Hwy 28. The early start time meant riding in temps below 50 degrees and using the liners again.  Since I was wearing blue jeans beneath the riding pants, I didn't they needed the pant liner.  My goal for the day was to be smooth on the bike and to take more pics.

Ride Report: End of Winter Blairsville Rally

15-17 March 2015: Inaugural Blairsville End of Winter Rally.

As soon as I got home from my hour long test ride after installing the Danmoto.com rearsets, I told Cruzman I needed a much longer test to truly get a feel for them. I suggested an overnighter instead of the day ride we had scheduled. Before the weekend, he was asking where we were staying, when we were meeting, what roads we'd be riding.

FZ1 Mod: Rearsets

One thing leads to another.  Since I upgraded my suspension, I've noticed how much more aggressive I've become in curves.  That aggressiveness comes from greater confidence in the feel of the bike and leads to scraping toes and/or hard parts.

Ride Report: About Damned Time

28 September 2014:  "I'm following you."

I didn't realize how long it had been since I'd been on a weekend ride until I got about halfway to the regular meet spot in Cumming GA and realized I'd left all my cameras at home.  It was too late to turn back, not that I would have anyway.  I have to be thinking about videoing a ride before I can actually pull it off.  For this ride, I had one request:  Ride Ft. Mountain.

Flipping leads to flaring

One of the few things I remembered clearly since the symptoms of Lupus started feeding on me is the conversation I had with my big sister about having lupus. My sister was always my trailblazer. Whatever path she chose, I knew to take a different one. From the moment my dr in California told me I had lupus,there were only two things on my mind: moving back home and making my doctor see me.
