Hahaha... nah... training wheels! 1269362239Z0bM4e

Yeah I drew the map out but forgot to sign into google to save it... took like 15 minutes. I will just save the route for when I put on another ride.

Truth is... turns out my forks werent upgraded on the silver bike with emulators... not sure how they caused it to react the way it did. Even the guys at Motorcycles Unlimited were pretty sure it had emulators in it by the way the forks rebounded....So Tony was going to service my forks since he had everything else torn down, he opens them up and finds out they are stock so I decided to opt for the upgrade while the forks were in pieces already.

You know the 3090 route? If so I'll vote for 3090.

I know the route.

How many noobs wanna take it a Cruiser Pace. Indicated 10 over speed limit on highway.

Speed limit through turns on 3090 (per Thayleal original plan).

This would be a great opportunity for anyone to learn the route.

On the way back same way on 3090, if comfortable, we can turn it up a notch to 15mph over indicated!!!

We could tag along JIMRADS ride.

Even if we get one noob to come i'll lead it, but if not I'll go with him and take a different bike.

the only issue with the bolded statement is, someone will try to keep up.

So is JIMRAD going to do speed limit on posted turns? I doubt it. Even for noobs, 3090 at a moderate pace will mean taking 35's at 55's-60's which isn't a great way to start learning.

If anyone does wanna take a NOOB ride with a step up if everyone's comfortable on the way back say so here:



1. Oldschool


If so we can meet up at 8am at Bucees on 290
meeting at 8:15
roll out after meeting.

At their pace we should get to yankees about the same time.

Also you don't have to be a newer rider to want to ride a Cruiser pace.

Yea 10-15 over posted would be good, especially most of us on this thread probably never been on that road.

So I would be happy to join in on the JIMRAD group, however, i'd prefer to leave before they do so we all get their about the same time.

Wesleh, you down for the NOOB ride

As soon as we start riding....the sweeper will observe the riders in the pack ...we will stop a few miles down the road to make necessary changes, and if needed, a slower pace group will be formed.....

We will stop right before we get on 3090....the group will be split in two...one for moderate pace (lead:jimrad)...

The other for noob/ easy pace (Lead:baopee or oldschool)
